Regulatory mechanisms of group distributions in a gregarious arthropod
In a patchy environment, how social animals manage conspecific and environmental cues in their choice of habitat is a leading issue for understanding their spatial distribution and their exploitation of resources. Here, ...
X-ray microtomography provides first data about the feeding behaviour of an endangered lizard, the Montserrat galliwasp
Reporting the diet of recently extinct or very rare taxa, only known by a few museum specimens, is challenging. This study uses X-ray microtomography, a non-destructive investigation method, to obtain the first data about ...
