Despite large herbivorous fish being generally accepted as the main group responsible for preventing algal accumulation on coral reefs, few studies have experimentally examined the relative importance of herbivore size on algal communities. This study used exclusion cages with two different mesh sizes (1 × 1 cm and 6 × 6 cm) to investigate the impact of(More)
A short and efficient synthesis of homopentafluorophenylalanine (6) from oxazolidine aldehyde 1 in 57% overall yield and in > 98% ee is described. The enantiomeric excess of the product was determined by 19F NMR analysis of the coupling product derived from 5 and L-Ser(O-t-Bu)-OCH3, by comparison to a dipeptide obtained from racemic 5.
