Global patterns of sexual dimorphism in Amblypygi.
It is suggested that sexual dimorphism is ancestral for the order, but has been reduced or lost in some species. Expand
Whip spiders (Amblypygi) become water-repellent by a colloidal secretion that self-assembles into hierarchical microstructures
A multi-phasic secretion in whip spiders (Arachnida, Amblypygi), which externally forms durable, hierarchical microstructures on the basically smooth cuticle makes the previously highly wettable cuticle super-hydrophobic. Expand
The life history of the parthenogenetic scorpion Lychas tricarinatus (Simon, 1884) from Odisha province, India and supplementary notes on Tityus trivittatus Kraepelin, 1898 (Scorpiones, Buthidae)
It is shown that virgin females gave birth to offspring proving that specimens are capable of parthenogenetic reproduction, and an all-female population of Tityus trivittatus from the Corrientes province (Argentina), which originated from a fully bi-sexual population is described. Expand
Description of Sarax buxtoni (Gravely 1915) (Arachnida: Amblypygi: Charinidae) and a new case of parthenogenesis in Amblypygi from Singapore
A description compiled from a population in Singapore, representing the first case of asexual reproduction in a member of the genus Sarax Simon 1892, is provided, including morphological and taxonomical details presented for the first time. Expand
The whip spider collection (Arachnida, Amblypygi) held in the Natural History Museum Vienna, Austria
The whip spider collection housed in the Natural History Museum of Vienna, Austria is presented, which comprises a total of 167 specimens from 4 families, 10 genera and 27 species. Expand
Whip spiders (Amblypygi, Arachnida) of the Western Palaearctic-a review.
All records of the two amblypygid species occurring in the Western Palaearctic are mapped and both species (Charinus ioanniticus and Musicodamon atlanteus) are discussed. Charinus ioanniticus isExpand
Interaction of the mitochondrial membrane D-3-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase with fluorescent phospholipids

Electron-electron spin-spin interaction in spin-labeled low-spin methemoglobin.
The results demonstrate the power of using time-domain EPR measurements to probe the distance between a slowly relaxing spin and a relatively rapidly relaxing metal in a protein. Expand
Trace-gas sensor based on mid-IR difference-frequency generation in PPLN with saturated output power
Abstract The development and characterization of a compact pulsed mid-IR laser source for sensitive on-line trace-gas analyses in the 3–4 μm wavelength range is reported. The source is based on anExpand
Interspin distances determined by time domain EPR of spin-labeled high-spin methemoglobin
Continuous wave (CW) EPR spectra of the nitroxyl signal in high-spin fluoro- and aquo-methemoglobin spin-labeled at the β-93 cysteines exhibited line broadening as the temperature was reduced from 20Expand
