DNA banking: the effects of storage of blood and isolated DNA on the integrity of DNA.
TLDR
DNA in solution stored at ambient temperatures up to 37 degrees C for 6 months was digestible by three different restriction endonucleases, whereas storage at 45 degrees C is deleterious after 6-7 weeks, and a sample stored dry for 13 years and then in solution at -20degree C for 7 years appeared to be intact.
STUDIES ON THE BEHAVIOR OF NASSARIUS OBSOLETUS (SAY) (MOLLUSCA, GASTROPODA)
TLDR
The reactions of specimens of Nassarius obsoletus exposed individually to controlled laboratory stimuli are as follows: Nassarius shows a light-compass reaction, but no optomotor response, and mud snails accumulate on those richest in diatoms and bacteria.
Color and Heat Balance in the Lizard Lacerta dugesii
TLDR
It is suggested that color is unimportant for heat balance in this species and selective predation is a more attractive hypothesis to explain the variation than is the thermal hypothesis.
A non-organic and non-enzymatic extraction method gives higher yields of genomic DNA from whole-blood samples than do nine other methods tested.
TLDR
The 'Rapid Method' (RM) (Method 10) is the safest, fastest and most quantitative and economical method for preparation of DNA from whole blood and cells.
Effects of Feeding and of Chemical Stimulation on the Oxygen Uptake of Nassarius Reticulatus (Gastropoda: Prosobranchia)
TLDR
Stimuli indicating the presence of food provoke an impressive increase in activity of most starved Nassarius and recently-fed whelks, however, often fail to respond to the same stimuli (Crisp, in preparation).
The development of the serpulid Pomatoleios kraussii (Annelida, Polychaeta)
The development of Pomatoleios kraussii is extremely similar to that of Pomatoceros triqueter, and is completed under laboratory conditions in 1–3 weeks at 25–27°C. Mature larvae settle and
