Conservation of position and exclusive expression of mouse Xist from the inactive X chromosome
X-CHROMOSOME inactivation in mammals is a regulatory phenomenon whereby one of the two X chromosomes in female cells is genetically inactivated, resulting in dosage compensation for X-linked genesExpand

Rates of litter decomposition over 6 years in Canadian forests: influence of litter quality and climate
The effects of litter quality and climate on decomposition rates of plant tissues were examined using percent mass remaining (MR) data of 10 foliar litter types and 1 wood type during 6 yearsExpand

Host Volatile Attractants and Traps for Detection of Tetropium fuscum (F.), Tetropium castaneum L., and Other Longhorned Beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
Abstract Cortical and sapwood volatiles were collected in situ from red spruce, Picea rubens (Sarg.), trees infested with Tetropium fuscum (F.), to determine the relative concentrations andExpand

Exotic earthworm distribution in a mixed-use northern temperate forest region: influence of disturbance type, development age, and soils
The impacts of invasive earthworms in northern North American forests include mixing of soil and litter horizons, changes to nutrient availability, and shifts in understory plant communities.Expand

Sublethal Effects of Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner subsp. kurstaki on Lymantria dispar (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) and the Tachinid Parasitoid Compsilura concinnata (Diptera: Tachinidae)
Abstract Parasitoid-pathogen interactions were examined using gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar (L.), Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner, and Compsilura concinnata (Meigen). The objectives of this study wereExpand
