Sective Deficits In The Sense Of Smell Caused By Chemical Modification Of Olfactory Epithelium, J Russell Mason, Larry Clark, Thomas Morton Jan 1984

Sective Deficits In The Sense Of Smell Caused By Chemical Modification Of Olfactory Epithelium, J Russell Mason, Larry Clark, Thomas Morton

Larry Clark

A chemically selective procedure for covalent modification of Schiff base-forming binding sites in proteins is demonstrated in vitro. In vivo studies show that the same procedure produces a selective anosmia ("odor blindness") when applied to the olfactory epithelia of experimental animals. Surgical experiments confirm that the sense of smell is specifically affected.


Consequences Of Homeothermic Capacity Of Nestlings On Parental Care In The European Starling, Larry Clark Jan 1984

Consequences Of Homeothermic Capacity Of Nestlings On Parental Care In The European Starling, Larry Clark

Larry Clark

The homeothermic capacity of chicks varied as a function of brood size, age, and air temperature. Commitment to rooding by parents also varied as a function of brood size, age of the young brooded, and prevailing air temperature. It was experimentally determined that parents altered their brooding commitment in direct response to the achieved mean homeothermic capacity of the brood rather than energy demands of the brood per se. Because larger broods achieved a given level of homeothermic capacity earlier than smaller broods, parents spent less time brooding larger broods. This "freed" time represented an increase in potential foraging time ...
