Quantitative analysis of the rubric as an assessment tool: an empirical study of student peer‐group rating
Although the rubric has emerged as one of the most popular assessment tools in progressive educational programs, there is an unfortunate dearth of information in the literature quantifying the actualExpand
Basal Clades and Molecular Systematics of Heteromyid Rodents
Abstract The New World rodent family Heteromyidae shows a marvelous array of ecomorphological types, from bipedal, arid-adapted forms to scansorial, tropical-adapted forms. Although recent studiesExpand
On the status of the Serranid fish genus Epinephelus: evidence for paraphyly based upon 16S rDNA sequence.
Historically, attempts to elucidate evolutionary relationships among members of the genus Epinephelus (Teleostei: Serranidae), commonly known as groupers, have been hindered by the overwhelmingExpand
Evolutionary relationships of heteromyid rodents
The rodent superfamily Geomyoidea is an old, undoubtedly monophyletic lineage having only obscure affinities with other rodent groups. Geomyoid rodents, autochthonous in North America, experiencedExpand
Analysis of age and growth in two eastern pacific groupers (Serranidae : Epinephelinae)
In an attempt to characterize species specific-growth rates of two Eastern Pacific groupers, individuals from two sympatric species, Epinephelus labriformis (n = 173), and Cephalopholis panamensis (nExpand
Genetic variation among populations of chewing lice (Geomydoecus actuosi) was examined in relation to chromosomal and electrophoretic variation among populations of their hosts (Thomomys bottae) at aExpand
A chromosomal banding study of three species of vespertilionid bats from Yugoslavia
G-band and C-band patterns were studied for three species of vespertilionid bats (Myotis myotis, M. oxygnathus, and Miniopterus schreibersi) from Yugoslavia. Banding patterns of the two species ofExpand
Phylogeography of the pallid kangaroo mouse, Microdipodops pallidus: a sand-obligate endemic of the Great Basin, western North America
Aim Kangaroo mice, genus Microdipodops Merriam, are endemic to the Great Basin and include two species: M. pallidus Merriam and M. megacephalus Merriam. The pallid kangaroo mouse, M. pallidus, is aExpand
Macrogeographic patterns of genetic differentiation in the pocket gopher Thomomys umbrinus
Electromorphic and chromosomal variation is analyzed in 26 populations of Tho- momys umbrinus sampled from throughout the range of the species. Interpopulation levels of genic differentiation areExpand
Production of digestive enzymes along the gut of the giant keyhole limpet Megathura crenulata (Mollusca: Vetigastropoda).
The esophagus and intestine form the longest regions of the digestive tract in the giant keyhole limpet and are lined by epithelial cells sharing a common morphology and releasing materials into theExpand
