Understanding the scales over which land use affects animal populations is critical for conservation planning, and it can provide information about the mechanisms that underlie correlations between species distributions and land use. We used a citizen science database of anuran surveys to examine the relationship between road density, land use and the distribution of frogs and toads across spatial scales and regions of the United States.


A Population-Based Study To Investigate Host Genetic Factors Associated With Hepatitis B Infection And Pathogenesis In The Chinese Population, Zheng Zheng, Li Guan, Ping An, Shan Sun, Stephen J. O'Brien, Cheryl Winkler Oct 2016

A Population-Based Study To Investigate Host Genetic Factors Associated With Hepatitis B Infection And Pathogenesis In The Chinese Population, Zheng Zheng, Li Guan, Ping An, Shan Sun, Stephen J. O'Brien, Cheryl Winkler

Stephen O'Brien

Background Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a significant public health problem that may lead to chronic liver disease, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Approximately 30% of the world's population has been infected with HBV and approximately 350 million (5–6%) are persistent carriers. More than 120 million Chinese are infected with HBV. The role of host genetic factors and their interactions with environmental factors leading to chronic HBV infection and its complications are not well understood. We believe that a better understanding of these factors and interactions will lead to more effective diagnostic and therapeutic options. Methods/Design ...


A Study Of Defensive Mechanisms Employed By Two Species Of Nudibranchs Using Toxicity And Unpalatability Analyses, Sean Youn Oct 2016

A Study Of Defensive Mechanisms Employed By Two Species Of Nudibranchs Using Toxicity And Unpalatability Analyses, Sean Youn

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

Nudibranchs are marine invertebrates that have developed an intriguing defense mechanism, including warning coloration and the use of chemicals accumulated through their sponge diet. The goal of this study was to determine whether the strength of chemical defenses differs between dietary and accumulated secondary metabolites for two species: Glossodoris vespa and Ceratosoma brevicaudatum. First, NMR spectroscopy was used to not only identify specific compounds in the mantle (outer covering) and the viscera (gut) but also to analyze the possibility of nudibranch species transporting more toxic compounds for defensive purposes. Next, toxicity (brine shrimp) and palatability (Palaemon shrimp) assays were used ...

Frozen Brain Atlas, Natalie Andrea Builes, Dominick Joseph Casciato, Samantha Taylor Bergoine, Robert Speth

Frozen Brain Atlas

The Frozen Brain Atlas provides students, educators, and scientists with a tool to further explore the architecture of the brain. Current brain atlases allow users to navigate sectioned brain tissue using histological staining; however, they fail to capture naturally visible structures post sectioning. Through immediate post sectioning image collection, the natural contrast of the brain reveals unique structural details that are rarely seen by traditional staining procedures. By utilizing indexing and interactive labeling, the Nova Southeastern University Frozen Brain Atlas will allow identification of brain regions when used as a correlative tool for modalities including receptor autoradiography, immunofluorescence, and other ...

Effectiveness Of The Toxicant Drc-1339 In Reducing Populations Of Common Ravens In Wyoming, Luke W. Peebles, Michael R. Conover Jun 2016

Effectiveness Of The Toxicant Drc-1339 In Reducing Populations Of Common Ravens In Wyoming, Luke W. Peebles, Michael R. Conover

Wildland Resources Faculty Publications

Common raven (Corvus corax) populations have increased several-fold in the western United States during the past century; these birds cause problems when they kill new-borne lambs and calves and depredate nests of greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus). The toxicant DRC-1339 is used by U.S. Department of Agriculture/Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Wildlife Services to manage common raven populations and reduce the severity of these problems, but it is difficult to determine how many ravens are killed by an application because carcasses are rarely found. We examined the effectiveness of DRC-1339 applications for preventative control of ravens at 3 ...

Rna-Seq Analysis Reveals Distinct Splenic Response Of Two Chickens Lines To Newcastle Disease Virus, Jibin Zhang, Michael G. Kaiser, Melissa S. Herrmann, Rodrigo A. Gallardo, David A. Bunn, Huaijun Zhou, Susan J. Lamont May 2016

Rna-Seq Analysis Reveals Distinct Splenic Response Of Two Chickens Lines To Newcastle Disease Virus, Jibin Zhang, Michael G. Kaiser, Melissa S. Herrmann, Rodrigo A. Gallardo, David A. Bunn, Huaijun Zhou, Susan J. Lamont

Jibin Zhang

Newcastle disease virus (NDV) is an infectious virus in domestic chickens and is endemic in many countries. It has caused huge economic losses worldwide, especially in developing countries where the chickens and eggs are a primary source of economic income and family nutrition for the rural poor. Due to continuous evolution of NDV and unreliable vaccine production and distribution in developing countries, vaccine cannot prevent recurrent outbreaks of Newcastle disease. Therefore, breeding for NDV resistant chickens is a sustainable approach for alleviating rural poverty and food insecurity.
To identify critical genes regulating NDV resistance, an RNA-seq approach was undertaken with ...

We ended up raising $320 on the page and were very grateful that an anonymous donor stepped forward and donated ...


Beyond The Urban Stream Syndrome: Organic Matter Budgets For Diagnostics And Restoration Of An Impaired Urban River, Dave M. Epstein, Julia E. Kelso, Michelle A. Baker Apr 2016

Beyond The Urban Stream Syndrome: Organic Matter Budgets For Diagnostics And Restoration Of An Impaired Urban River, Dave M. Epstein, Julia E. Kelso, Michelle A. Baker

Biology Faculty Publications

In response to water quality standard violations linked to excessive organic matter (OM) and a lack of sampling data informing the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL), an organic matter budget was created to quantify and identify sources of OM in the lower Jordan River (Salt Lake City, UT). By sampling dissolved, fine, and coarse particulate OM, as well as measuring ecosystem metabolism at seven different sites, the researchers aimed to identify the origin of excess OM, and understand pathways by which different size classes of the OM pool are generated. The dissolved fraction (DOM; 94 %) was found to be the ...

Mild Heat Stress Enhances Differentiation And Proliferation Of Japanese Quail Myoblasts And Enhances Slow Muscle Fiber Characteristics, Jibin Zhang, Paula Chen, Kichoon Lee, Seongsoo Hwang, Young Min Choi

Jibin Zhang

The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of mild heat stress on muscle fiber hyperplastic and hypertrophic growth in quail primary myogenic cells to better understand the mechanisms leading to increased skeletal muscle development in avian embryos incubated at a higher temperature. Compared to control cultures maintained at 37°C, incubation at 39°C enhanced myotube length (P < 0.01) and diameter (P < 0.001) at 3 days after differentiation (D3). This enlargement of the myotubes incubated at 39°C can be explained by differences in the fusion index (56.7 vs. 46.2%, P < 0.05 ...

Microhabitat Conditions In Wyoming’S Sage-Grouse Core Areas: Effects On Nest Site Selection And Success, Jonathan B. Dinkins, Kurt T. Smith, Jeffrey L. Beck, Christopher P. Kirol, Aaron C. Pratt, Michael R. Conover

Wildland Resources Faculty Publications

The purpose of our study was to identify microhabitat characteristics of greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) nest site selection and survival to determine the quality of sage-grouse habitat in 5 regions of central and southwest Wyoming associated with Wyoming’s Core Area Policy. Wyoming’s Core Area Policy was enacted in 2008 to reduce human disturbance near the greatest densities of sage-grouse. Our analyses aimed to assess sage-grouse nest selection and success at multiple micro-spatial scales. We obtained microhabitat data from 928 sage-grouse nest locations and 819 random microhabitat locations from 2008–2014. Nest success was estimated from 924 nests with ...


Circadian Effects Of The Conditional Knockdown Of Serotonin In The Midbrain Raphe Nuclear Complex Of Adult Mice, Robert W. Woodruff Iii, Ashley Shemery, Alex Yaw, J. David Glass Mar 2016

Circadian Effects Of The Conditional Knockdown Of Serotonin In The Midbrain Raphe Nuclear Complex Of Adult Mice, Robert W. Woodruff Iii, Ashley Shemery, Alex Yaw, J. David Glass

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Hypothesis: The brain serotonin (5-HT) system is known to play a key role in regulating critical processes such as circadian clock timing, motivation, reward response and sleep. 5-HT knockout (SKO) mouse models have previously been used to understand 5-HT actions, but such global 5-HT depletion has profound non-targeted neurophysiological and developmental consequences. Therefore, conditional SKOs are needed. Here, we performed preliminary behavioral phenotyping in a conditional 5-HT knock down model where 5-HT synthesis blockade was targeted specifically to the midbrain raphe nuclear complex (site of hypothalamic serotonergic innervation) in adult mice.

Methods: Male Tph2-floxed mice were injected with AAV-Cre (experimental ...


A Systematic Review Of Empathy Development In Medical Education, Sandra H. Sulzer, Claire Wendland, Noah Feinstein Feb 2016

A Systematic Review Of Empathy Development In Medical Education, Sandra H. Sulzer, Claire Wendland, Noah Feinstein

Kinesiology and Health Science Faculty Publications

Context Empathy in doctor–patient relationships is a familiar topic for medical scholars and a crucial goal for medical educators. Nonetheless, there are persistent disagreements in the research literature concerning how best to evaluate empathy among physicians, and whether empathy declines or increases across medical education. Some researchers have argued that the instruments used to study ‘empathy’ may not measure anything meaningful to clinical practice or patient satisfaction. Methods We performed a systematic review to learn how empathy is conceptualised in medical education research. We examined how researchers define the central construct of empathy and what they choose to measure ...


Prenatal Methamphetamine Differentially Alters Myocardial Sensitivity To Ischemic Injury In Male And Female Adult Rats, Boyd R. Rorabaugh, Sarah L. Seeley, Albert D. Bui, Lisanne Sprague, Manoranjan S. D’Souza Feb 2016

Prenatal Methamphetamine Differentially Alters Myocardial Sensitivity To Ischemic Injury In Male And Female Adult Rats, Boyd R. Rorabaugh, Sarah L. Seeley, Albert D. Bui, Lisanne Sprague, Manoranjan S. D’Souza

Pharmacy Faculty Scholarship

Methamphetamine is one of the most common illicit drugs abused during pregnancy. The neurological effects of prenatal methamphetamine are well known. However, few studies have investigated the potential effects of prenatal methamphetamine on adult cardiovascular function. Previous work demonstrated that prenatal cocaine exposure increases sensitivity of the adult heart to ischemic injury. Methamphetamine and cocaine have different mechanisms of action, but both drugs exert their effects by increasing dopaminergic and adrenergic receptor stimulation. Thus the goal of this study was to determine whether prenatal methamphetamine also worsens ischemic injury in the adult heart. Pregnant rats were injected with methamphetamine (5 ...


Contrasting Soil Nitrogen Dynamics Across A Montane Meadow And Urban Lawn In A Semi-Arid Watershed, Steven J. Hall, Michelle A. Baker, Scott B. Jones, John M. Stark, David R. Bowling Feb 2016

Contrasting Soil Nitrogen Dynamics Across A Montane Meadow And Urban Lawn In A Semi-Arid Watershed, Steven J. Hall, Michelle A. Baker, Scott B. Jones, John M. Stark, David R. Bowling

Biology Faculty Publications

Urbanization substantially increases nitrogen (N) inputs and hydrologic losses relative to wildland ecosystems, although the fate of N additions to lawns and remnant grasslands remains contested. In montane semi-arid ecosystems, N cycling is often closely coupled to snowmelt (the dominant period of infiltration) and snow cover, which impact soil temperature and moisture. Here, we compared soil N dynamics between a fertilized and irrigated urban lawn and nearby riparian meadow in Salt Lake City, Utah during a snow manipulation experiment. Snow removal increased freeze/thaw events but did not affect N pools, microbial biomass, denitrification potential, or soil oxygen (O2). Mineral ...


Movement Path Tortuosity In Free Ambulation: Relationships To Age And Brain Disease, William Kearns, James Fozard, Vilis Nams Jan 2016

Movement Path Tortuosity In Free Ambulation: Relationships To Age And Brain Disease, William Kearns, James Fozard, Vilis Nams

William D. Kearns, PhD

Ambulation is defined by duration, distance traversed, number and size of directional changes and the interval separating successive movement episodes; more complex measures of ambulation can be created by aggregating these features. This review article of published findings defines random changes in direction during movement as “movement path tortuosity”, and relates tortuosity to the understanding of cognitive impairments of persons of all ages. Path tortuosity is quantified by subjecting tracking data to fractal analysis, specifically Fractal Dimension (Fractal D), which ranges from a value of 1 when the movement path is perfectly straight to a value of 2 when the ...


Distinct Cardiac Responses To Heat Stress Between Two Broiler Lines Identified By Transcriptome Analysis, Jibin Zhang, Carl J. Schmidt, Susan J. Lamont Jan 2016

Distinct Cardiac Responses To Heat Stress Between Two Broiler Lines Identified By Transcriptome Analysis, Jibin Zhang, Carl J. Schmidt, Susan J. Lamont

Jibin Zhang

Prolonged exposure to high temperature can significantly increase metabolism, depress appetite, reduce meat production and raise mortality in broilers. Because the cardiovascular system plays an important role to dissipate heat and transport oxygen, strong cardiac function is indispensable for birds to survive under heat stress. However, due to small hearts relative to body weight, modern broilers have high risk of heart failure at high temperature.
In this study, a Ross 708 line (modern broilers) and a Heritage broiler line (relaxed selection since the 1950s) were subjected to heat stress at 35℃  for 7 hours/day from 21 to 42 days ...


Stream Water Nitrogen Inputs Reflects Groundwater Across A Snowmelt-Dominated Montane-To-Urban Watershed, Steven J. Hall, Samantha R. Weintraub, David Eiriksson, Paul D. Brooks, Michelle A. Baker, Gabriel J. Bowen, David R. Bowling Jan 2016

Stream Water Nitrogen Inputs Reflects Groundwater Across A Snowmelt-Dominated Montane-To-Urban Watershed, Steven J. Hall, Samantha R. Weintraub, David Eiriksson, Paul D. Brooks, Michelle A. Baker, Gabriel J. Bowen, David R. Bowling

Biology Faculty Publications

Snowmelt dominates the hydrograph of many temperate montane streams, yet little work has characterized how streamwater sources and nitrogen (N) dynamics vary across wildland to urban land use gradients in these watersheds. Across a third-order catchment in Salt Lake City, Utah, we asked where and when groundwater vs shallow surface water inputs controlled stream discharge and N dynamics. Stream water isotopes (δ2H and δ18O) reflected a consistent snowmelt water source during baseflow. Near-chemostatic relationships between conservative ions and discharge implied that groundwater dominated discharge year-round across the montane and urban sites, challenging the conceptual emphasis on direct stormwater inputs to ...
