Seasonal patterns of carbohydrate storage in four tropical tree species
TLDR
The combination of high TNC concentrations and the large biomass of branches, trunks, and roots indicates these species are storing and moving large quantities of carbohydrates.
A cross-continental test of the Enemy Release Hypothesis: leaf herbivory on Acer platanoides (L.) is three times lower in North America than in its native Europe
Acer platanoides (Norway maple) is a widespread native tree species in Europe. It has been introduced to North America where it has often established dense stands in both secondary woodlands and
The effect of understory palms and cyclanths on the growth and survival of Inga seedlings
TLDR
It is suggested that understory vegetation, especially broad-leaved palms and palm-like cyclanths, acts as a filter affecting the distribution and abundance of establishing seedlings.
Direct and delayed costs of reproduction in Aesculus californica
TLDR
Reproduction in Aesculus californica involves both direct and delayed costs, and it is demonstrated that individual fruit-bearing shoots could not independently supply all the resources required in fruit development.
Life history, enamel formation, and linear enamel hypoplasia in the Ceboidea.
TLDR
The relationship between maturation length and LEH frequency within the Ceboidea is explored and a related hypothesis linking the spacing of perikymata, which is influenced by enamel extension rates, is examined.
Non-structural carbohydrate accumulation and use in an understorey rain-forest shrub and relevance for the impact of leaf herbivory
TLDR
The results, together with previous studies, demonstrate that the impact of leaf herbivory on seed production in P. arieianum depends on the timing of that Herbivory relative to the accumulation and use of non-structural carbohydrates.
Photosynthetic responses of Miconia species to canopy openings in a lowland tropical rainforest
TLDR
Examination of photosynthetic acclimation of three tropical species of Miconia to canopy openings in a Costa Rican rainforest suggests species differences in local distribution and in light requirements for reproduction may be more strongly related to species Differences in carbon allocation than in carbon assimilation.
Localized hypoplasia of the primary canine in bonobos, orangutans, and gibbons.
TLDR
The prevalence of LHPC among a variety of apes which differ in body mass and socioecology is determined, and it is concluded that LHPC probably reflects deficient growth of the arcades in infant apes and humans.
A re-evaluation of localized hypoplasia of the primary canine as a marker of craniofacial osteopenia in European Upper Paleolithic infants.
TLDR
Investigation of the prenatal diet of mothers whose children are shown later to have LHPC found mothers are significantly low in vitamin A, a common factor that could link orangutan and Upper Paleolithic mothers is low dietary fat intake.
