Identification and characterization of nine polymorphic microsatellite loci in the North American pika, Ochotona princeps
Nine polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed for the North American pika (Ochotona princeps) from di- and tetranucleotide repeat-enriched genomic libraries. Polymorphism was assessed for 165Expand

Generation of a life-expanded rhesus monkey fibroblast cell line for the growth of rhesus rhadinovirus (RRV)
Summary. RRV, the rhesus macaque equivalent to HHV-8 or kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) was recently isolated from a simian immuno-deficiency virus (SIV) infected macaque with aExpand

Are low infidelity rates in feral horses due to infanticide?
A growing number of studies conducted on diverse taxa have shown that extra-pair/group paternity is higher than what would be predicted from behavioral observations alone. While it may be beneficialExpand

Return of a giant: DNA from archival museum samples helps to identify a unique cutthroat trout lineage formerly thought to be extinct
Currently one small, native population of the culturally and ecologically important Lahontan cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii henshawi, LCT, Federally listed) remains in the Truckee RiverExpand

Replication of rhesus cytomegalovirus in life-expanded rhesus fibroblasts expressing human telomerase.
The kinetics of rhesus cytomegalovirus (RhCMV) infection were compared in primary and telomerase-immortalized (Telo-) rhesus fibroblasts (RF). Equivalent viral titers were achieved with both cellExpand

Identification of the Rhesus Macaque Rhadinovirus Lytic Origin of DNA Replication
ABSTRACT We have identified a lytic origin of DNA replication (oriLyt) for rhesus macaque rhadinovirus (RRV), the rhesus macaque homolog of human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8), also known as Kaposi'sExpand

Strong founder effects and low genetic diversity in introduced populations of Coqui frogs
The success of non‐native species may depend on the genetic resources maintained through the invasion process. The Coqui (Eleutherodactylus coqui), a frog endemic to Puerto Rico, was introduced toExpand

Characterization of 13 microsatellites for Lahontan cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarki henshawi) and cross‐amplification in six other salmonids
Thirteen newly developed tri‐ and tetranucleotide repeat microsatellite markers were developed for Lahontan cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarki henshawi), a threatened subspecies endemic to theExpand

Impacts of granivorous and frugivorous arthropods on pre-dispersal seed production of western juniper (Juniperus occidentalis)
Arthropods impact seed production in various juniper species, but effects of pre-dispersal seed predation are generally unknown for arthropods that feed on western juniper (Juniperus occidentalis).Expand

Assessing the Conservation Value of Hybridized Cutthroat Trout Populations in the Quinn River Drainage, Nevada
Abstract The Lahontan cutthroat trout Oncorhynchus clarki henshawi, an interior basin salmonid, is endemic to the hydrographic Lahontan Basin, which encompasses parts of northern Nevada, northeasternExpand
