Abstract

Arid environments provide ideal ground for investigating the mechanisms of adaptive evolution. High temperatures and low water availability are relentless stressors for many endotherms, including birds; yet birds persist in deserts. While physiological adaptation probably involves metab...read more

Microbial Ecology, Genetics, and Evolution

Microbes may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.

Energy Homeostasis in Feeding

Feeding behavior is a fundamental aspect of energy homeostasis, the process by which body's fuel is stored in the form of adipose tissue and is held constant over long intervals. Signals of energy homeostasis interact closely with neural circuits of motivation to control food intake. Discover the latest research on energy homeostasis in eating here.
