19 p, 5.8 MB Giant extinct caiman breaks constraint on the axial skeleton of extant crocodylians / Scheyer, Torsten M. (University of Zurich.

Paläontologisches Institut und Museum)
The number of precaudal vertebrae in all extant crocodylians is remarkably conservative, with nine cervicals, 15 dorsals and two sacrals, a pattern present also in their closest extinct relatives. The consistent vertebral count indicates a tight control of axial patterning by Hox genes during development. [...]

Mitochondrial deficits in energy production cause untreatable and fatal pathologies known as mitochondrial disease (MD). Central nervous system affectation is critical in Leigh Syndrome (LS), a common MD presentation, leading to motor and respiratory deficits, seizures and premature death. [...]

23 p, 1.8 MB Species-specific modulation of food-search behavior by respiration and chemosensation in Drosophila larvae / Kim, Daeyeon (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) ; Álvarez, Mar (Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia) ; Lechuga, Laura M. (Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia) ; Louis, Matthieu (University of California)
Animals explore their environment to encounter suitable food resources. Despite its vital importance, this behavior puts individuals at risk by consuming limited internal energy during locomotion. We have developed a novel assay to investigate how food-search behavior is organized in Drosophila melanogaster larvae dwelling in hydrogels mimicking their natural habitat. [...]

48 p, 6.4 MB Oldest skeleton of a fossil flying squirrel casts new light on the phylogeny of the group / Casanovas i Vilar, Isaac (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Garcia-Porta, Joan (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Fortuny Terricabras, Josep (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Sanisidro, Oscar (University of Kansas.

(Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Flying squirrels are the only group of gliding mammals with a remarkable diversity and wide geographical range. However, their evolutionary story is not well known. Thus far, identification of extinct flying squirrels has been exclusively based on dental features, which, contrary to certain postcranial characters, are not unique to them. [...]

19 p, 4.3 MB Experimental and observational studies find contrasting responses of soil nutrients to climate change / ZY Yuan ; F Jiao ; XR Shi ; Sardans i Galobart, Jordi (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i Aplicacions Forestals) ; Peñuelas, Josep (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia)
Manipulative experiments and observations along environmental gradients, the two most common approaches to evaluate the impacts of climate change on nutrient cycling, are generally assumed to produce similar results, but this assumption has rarely been tested. [...]
