Pallial and subpallial derivatives in the embryonic chick and mouse telencephalon, traced by the expression of the genes Dlx‐2, Emx‐1, Nkx‐2.1, Pax‐6, and Tbr‐1
Pallial and subpallial morphological subdivisions of the developing chicken telencephalon were examined by means of gene markers, compared with their expression pattern in the mouse. NestedExpand
An overview of the 'freshwater fishes' of Western Australia
Western Australia’s non-tidal waters provide refuges to many unique fishes. Here we provide an overview to synthesise contemporary knowledge on these species with the aim of providing readers with anExpand
The fish fauna of the Vasse-Wonnerup and the impact of a substantial fish kill event
Despite the high community value placed on the Vasse-Wonnerup and the many issues it faces, very little was known on its fish communities. This report details the results of the first comprehensiveExpand
Are vertical migrations driven by circadian behaviour? Decoupling of activity and depth use in a large riverine elasmobranch, the freshwater sawfish (Pristis pristis)
Circadian rhythms occur widely amongst living organisms, often in response to diel changes in environmental conditions. In aquatic animals, circadian activity is often synchronised with diel changesExpand
The tropical South American cichlid, Geophagus brasiliensis in Mediterranean climatic south-western Australia.
The highly endemic (82%) freshwater fishes of south-western Australia are imperiled due to severe habitat and water quality declines and impacts of introduced species. As a case study of the recentExpand
Habitat use of a Critically Endangered elasmobranch, the largetooth sawfish Pristis pristis, in an intermittently flowing riverine nursery
Knowledge of how an animal uses its habitat is a fundamental component of effective conservation strategies. The Critically Endangered largetooth sawfish Pristis pristis uses rivers and theirExpand
Understanding and mitigating the influence of historical managerial decisions on the fauna of the Vasse-Wonnerup
Temperate wetlands and estuaries are widely regarded as the most degraded of all aquatic ecosystems, largely due to their exposure to a range of deleterious anthropogenic influences. In the case ofExpand
Mechanical challenges to freshwater residency in sharks and rays
ABSTRACT Major transitions between marine and freshwater habitats are relatively infrequent, primarily as a result of major physiological and ecological challenges. Few species of cartilaginous fishExpand
First evidence of spawning migration by goldfish (Carassius auratus); implications for control of a globally invasive species
Goldfish (Carassius auratus) was one of the first fishes to be domesticated and has been widely introduced across the globe, but is now considered one of the world's worst invasive aquatic species.Expand
Mammal predation by an ariid catfish in a dryland river of Western Australia
The presence of the spinifex hopping mouse Notomys alexis in the diet of lesser salmon catfish Neoarius graeffei from the Ashburton River, Western Australia, is reported for the first time. TheExpand
