Estimated lifetime prevalence of trichotillomania in college students.
BACKGROUND Trichotillomania, a disorder of hair pulling, has been considered a rare condition. Estimations of the prevalence of this disorder have been based largely on clinical experience, and there
Mesophotic coral ecosystems are threatened and ecologically distinct from shallow water reefs
Evidence is presented contradicting two assumptions that there is considerable overlap in species composition and connectivity between shallow and deep populations and that deep reefs are less susceptible to anthropogenic and natural impacts than their shallower counterparts that are argued to be contradicted.
Names are key to the big new biology.
ZooBank: Developing a nomenclatural tool for unifying 250 years of biological information*
A robust discussion involving a broad spectrum of practicing zoological taxonomists is required over the next several years to define the specific implementation aspects of ZooBank.
Theme section on “Mesophotic Coral Ecosystems: Characterization, Ecology, and Management”
Mesophotic coral ecosystems (MCEs) are characterized by the presence of light-dependent corals and associated communities that are typically found at depths ranging from 30 to 40 m and extending to
Assessing undiscovered fish biodiversity on deep coral reefs using advanced self-contained diving technology
Analysis of specimens and videotape surveys of the ichthyofauna at one 90-m site in Palau suggests that as many as 70% of the species inhabiting this depth are undescribed, and conservative extrapolations suggest asMany as 2,000 or more coral-reef fish species await discovery on deep coral reefs throughout the Indo-Pacific.
The incidence of bulimia in freshman college students
This paper reports the results of a questionnaire survey administered to 1355 college freshman (98.3% response rate) and to a comparison group of 37 female bulimic patients. Questions were contructed
Eating related and general psychopathology in obese females with binge eating disorder.
The results support the idea that binge eaters might be a distinct subgroup among the obese population, and corroborate the utility of a diagnosis of BED in identifying the most disturbed obese subjects with regard to the variables tested.
Bulimia: a report of 34 cases.
The association between stealing behavior, chemical abuse and bulimia suggests problems with impulse control in this population of young females who usually experienced the onset of eating problems by early adulthood.
A comprehensive investigation of mesophotic coral ecosystems in the Hawaiian Archipelago
This work characterized the most expansive MCEs ever recorded, with vast macroalgal communities and areas of 100% coral cover between depths of 50–90 m extending for tens of km2 in the Hawaiian Archipelago, and finds that endemism within M CEs increases with depth, and does not support suggestions of a global faunal break at 60 m.
