Genotype-by-environment interactions (G × Es) describe genetic variation for phenotypic plasticity. Recent interest in the role of these interactions in sexual selection has identified G × Es across a diverse range of species and sexual traits. Additionally, theoretical work predicts that G × Es in sexual traits could help to maintain genetic variation, but(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the variation in the current UK management strategies for the treatment of febrile neutropenia in childhood. DESIGN AND SETTING A postal survey of all 21 United Kingdom Children's Cancer Study Group (UKCCSG) centres assessing and collating local policies, protocols or guidelines relating to the management of febrile neutropenia.(More)
Along-term goal of inertial-confinement fusion research is the generation of energy by imploding capsules containing deuterium-tritium fuel. Progress in designing the capsules is aided by accurate imaging of the fusion burn. Penumbral coded-aperture techniques have been used to obtain neutron images that are a direct measurement of the fusion burn region in(More)
Sexual selection is responsible for the evolution of many elaborate traits, but sexual trait evolution could be influenced by opposing natural selection as well as genetic constraints. As such, the evolution of sexual traits could depend heavily on the environment if trait expression and attractiveness vary between environments. Here, male Drosophila(More)
Sexual conflict results in a diversity of sex-specific adaptations, including chemical additions to ejaculates. Male decorated crickets (Gryllodes sigillatus) produce a gelatinous nuptial gift (the spermatophylax) that varies in size and free amino acid composition, which influences a female's willingness to fully consume this gift. Complete consumption of(More)
