Co-cultures of Oophila amblystomatis between Ambystoma maculatum and Ambystoma gracile hosts show host-symbiont fidelity
TLDR
Data reveal a potential host-symbiont fidelity that allows the unique endosymbiosis to occur in A. maculatum and A. gracile hosts, and suggests the intracapsular algae are assimilating ammonia for nitrogen metabolism and may be undergoing a life-cycle transition. Expand
Predator cue type and prey density alters survival strategies in larval Ambystoma maculatum and Rana sylvatica. BIOS 355 02-1: Practicum in Field Biology
Predators affect prey indirectly through mere presences in a system, which can induce morphological and behavioral prey adaptations increase survival. Adaption responses may occur from visual,Expand
Summering on the bank: Seasonal distribution and abundance of monkfish on Georges Bank
TLDR
It is indicated that increasing the use of dredge surveys to collect data on monkfish would be a positive step toward improving monkfish assessments, as their distributions may shift in response to climate change, increasing the need for improved monkfish assessment strategies to effectively manage the species in the future.

The seasonal distribution and abundance of barndoor skate on Georges Bank based on scallop dredge surveys
Abstract Barndoor skate (Dipturus laevis) is one of the largest skate species in the Northwest Atlantic, and seasonal trawl surveys have identified Georges Bank as critical barndoor skate habitat. WeExpand
Impacts of cannibalism on an all-female lineage of salamanders
TLDR
Preliminary results suggest that a salamander is more likely to eat a non-sibling, and that larvae grow larger in colder temperatures, than siblings, and the theory of kin selection is used, which states that an individual is morelikely to help another based on how closely related they are. Expand
