    • Harem holding males do not rise to the challenge 

      Pappano, David J.; Beehner, Jacinta C. (2014)
      The challenge hypothesis has been enormously successful in predictinginterspecific androgen profiles for vertebrate males. Nevertheless, in the absence of another theoretical framework, many researchers ‘retrofit’ the ...
    • Heat dissipation during hovering and forward flight in hummingbirds 

      Powers, Donald R. (2015)
      Flying animals generate large amounts of heat, which must be dissipated to avoid overheating. In birds, heat dissipation is complicated by feathers, which cover most body surfaces and retard heat loss. To understand how ...
    • Heidelberg-mCT-Analyzer 

      Westhauser, Fabian; Weis, Christian; Hoellig, Melanie (2015)
      Bone tissue engineering and bone scaffold development represent two challenging fields in orthopaedic research. Micro-computed tomography (mCT) allows non-invasive measurement of these scaffolds’ propertiesin vivo. However, ...
    • High atmospheric temperatures and ‘ambient incubation’ drive embryonic development and lead to earlier hatching in a passerine bird 

      Griffith, Simon C. (The Royal Society, 2016)
      Tropical and subtropical species typically experience relatively high atmospheric temperatures during reproduction, and are subject to climate-related challenges that are largely unexplored, relative to more extensive work ...
    • High content screening identifies a role for Na+ channels in insulin production 

      Szabat, Marta; Modi, Honey; Ramracheya, Reshma (2015)
      Insulin production is the central feature of functionally mature and differentiated pancreaticβ-cells. Reduced insulin transcription and dedifferentiation have been implicated in type 2 diabetes, making drugs that could ...
    • Highly contrasted responses of Mediterranean octocorals to climate change along a depth gradient 

      Pivotto, I. D.; Nerini, D.; Masmoudi, M. (2015)
      Climate change has a strong impact on marine ecosystems, including temperate species. Analysing the diversity of thermotolerance levels within species along with their genetic structure enables a better understanding of ...
    • A highly infective plant-associated bacterium influences reproductive rates in pea aphids 

      Hendry, Tory A.; Baltrus, David A.; Clark, Kelley J. (2016)
      Pea aphids, A cyrthosiphon pisum, have the potential to increase reproduction as a defence against pathogens, though how frequently this occurs or how infection with live pathogens influences this response is not well ...

    • Hodgkin–Huxley revisited 

      Daly, Aidan C.; Gavaghan, David J.; Holmes, Chris (2015)
      As cardiac cell models become increasingly complex, a correspondingly complex ‘genealogy’ of inherited parameter values has also emerged. The result has been the loss of a direct link between model parameters and experimental ...
    • How far will a behaviourally flexible invasive bird go to innovate? 

      J. Logan, Corina (2016)
      Behavioural flexibility is considered a key factor in the ability to adapt to changing environments. A traditional way of characterizing behavioural flexibility is to determine whether individuals invent solutions to novel ...
    • How the zebra got its stripes 

      Larison, Brenda; Harrigan, Ryan J.; Thomassen, Henri A. (2015)
      The adaptive significance of zebra stripes has thus far eluded understanding. Many explanations have been suggested, including social cohesion, thermoregulation, predation evasion and avoidance of biting flies. Identifying ...
