Exploitation of an ant chemical alarm signal by the zodariid spider Habronestes bradleyi Walckenaer
Intraspecific signals are vulnerable to exploitation by predators that are not the targets of the signal. This cost has been documented for several acoustic, visual and chemical signals, but not forExpand

Ontogenetic Variation in the Chemical Defenses of Cane Toads (Bufo marinus): Toxin Profiles and Effects on Predators
We conducted a quantitative and qualitative chemical analysis of cane toad bufadienolides—the cardioactive steroids that are believed to be the principal cane toad toxins. We found complex shifts inExpand

Microbial biotransformation as a source of chemical diversity in cane toad steroid toxins.
The cane toad is an invasive pest that is rapidly colonising northern Australia. The cane toad parotoid gland secretes cardiotoxic steroids (bufadienolides) that are poisoning native predatorExpand

Naseseazines A and B: a new dimeric diketopiperazine framework from a marine-derived actinomycete, Streptomyces sp.
Chemical analysis of a Streptomyces sp. (CMB-MQ030) isolated from a Fijian marine sediment yielded two new diketopiperazines, naseseazines A and B (1, 2), featuring a new dimeric framework.Expand

Rare Streptomyces N-formyl amino-salicylamides inhibit oncogenic K-Ras.
During a search for inhibitors of oncogenic K-Ras, we detected two known and two new examples of the rare neoantimycin structure class from a liquid cultivation of Streptomyces orinoci, andExpand

New Weapons in the Toad Toolkit: A Review of Methods to Control and Mitigate the Biodiversity Impacts of Invasive Cane Toads (Rhinella Marina)
Our best hope of developing innovative methods to combat invasive species is likely to come from the study of high-profile invaders that have attracted intensive research not only into control, butExpand
