Sexual dimorphism in mud crabs: a tale of three sympatric Scylla species
Isabella Bordon –– Sexual dimorphism in mud crabs
Effects of dietary inorganic chromium supplementation on broiler growth performance: a meta-analysis
Charles Okpala –– This paper contributes to the body of knowledge regarding chromium in broiler, very essential to the poultry industry.
Incomplete lineage sorting and ancient admixture, and speciation without morphological change in ghost-worm cryptic species
Joseph Gillespie –– Cerca et al. employ state-of-the-art population genomics approaches to illuminate a complex of cryptic species in a meiofaunal annelid.
Hissing of geese: caller identity encoded in a non-vocal acoustic signal
Lesley Rogers –– This paper enters a new area of investigation of avian vocalizations.
Doing nothing and what it looks like: inactivity in fattening cattle
Mohammed Gagaoua –– This paper is among the first that explored inactive behaviour in cattle by applying a detailed description of postures from an Inactivity Ethogram and by using the machine learning algorithm cspade to identify frequently co-occurring posture combinations
Arthropod IGF, relaxin and gonadulin, putative orthologs of Drosophila insulin-like peptides 6, 7 and 8, likely originated from an ancient gene triplication
Rogerio Sotelo-Mundo –– An extensive work addressing the functions and evolution of peptides insulin-like in the post-genomic era.
Effects of rumen bypass melatonin feeding (RBMF) on milk quality and mastitis of Holstein cows
Dunxian Tan –– The authors reported a new method to deal with the cow mastitis which is convenient and safe. If the results are confirmed, it is valuable for the diary farm to improve diary quality.
Impact of digital video analytics on accuracy of chemobehavioural phenotyping in aquatic toxicology
Jörg Oehlmann –– Because behaviorual endpoints are increasingly considered in ecotoxicological studies, the question and potential impacts of different data processing tools and software are important and relevant to come to valid results.
