The results indicate that young women with patellofemoral pain are more likely to demonstrate weakness in hip abduction as well as external rotation than age-matched women who are not symptomatic.

Core stability has an important role in injury prevention and future study may reveal that differences in postural stability partially explain the gender bias among female athletes.
Lower extremity mechanics of females with and without patellofemoral pain across activities with progressively greater task demands.
Core strength and lower extremity alignment during single leg squats.
Using instruments suitable for a clinical setting, females were found to have greater FPPA and generally decreased trunk, hip, and knee isometric torque.
Utility of the frontal plane projection angle in females with patellofemoral pain.
The association between the FPPA and lower extremity kinematics that are associated with PFPS suggest that theFPPA during single-leg squats may be a useful clinical measure, however, these methods should not be used to quantify 3-D joint rotations.

Current evidence suggests that decreased core stability may predispose to injury and that appropriate training may reduce injury, and can be tested using isometric, isokinetic, and isoinertial methods.
Isolation and characterization of the Schizosaccharomyces pombe rhp9 gene: a gene required for the DNA damage checkpoint but not the replication checkpoint.
Epistasis analysis with other S.pombe checkpoint mutants indicates that rhp 9 acts in a process involving the checkpoint rad genes and that the rhp9 mutant is phenotypically very similar to chk1.
Gluteal muscle activation during running in females with and without patellofemoral pain syndrome.
Severe mammal declines coincide with proliferation of invasive Burmese pythons in Everglades National Park

It is suggested that predation by pythons has resulted in dramatic declines in mammals within ENP and that introduced apex predators, such as giant constrictors, can exert significant top-down pressure on prey populations.
Effects of Habitat Disturbance on Stream Salamanders: Implications for Buffer Zones and Watershed Management
Abstract: With human populations increasing worldwide, habitat destruction and degradation are among the greatest threats facing wildlife. To minimize the impacts of development on aquatic habitats,…
