Fighting behavior, leading to the establishment of stable dominant-subordinate relationships between pairs of males, is described for the cockroach Nauphoeta cinerea. Deaths, which do not appear to be due to external damage, occur in subordinate animals as a result of fighting. The situation is likened to death from stress as found in mammals.

Analyzing data from 178 applicants to a behavioral(More)
Approximately 40% of off-treatment pediatric cancer survivors (PCS) are overweight or obese, which increases their risk for negative long-term physical health complications. Consistent with the Institute of Medicine's (IOM) emphasis on patients transitioning from treatment to cancer survivorship and increasing long-term healthy behaviors in these survivors,(More)
