Microhabitat selection in the sand recluse spider (Sicarius thomisoides): the effect of rock size and temperature
(Taylor & Francis, 2017)
In spiders, temperature is considered an important environmental variable for microhabitat selection. In this study, we evaluated the effect of temperature and rock size on the presence of the sand recluse spider Sicarius ...
A strategy for selecting calibration samples for multivariate modelling

MATE SELECTION IN AQUACULTURE BREEDING USING DIFFERENTIAL EVOLUTION
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-04-01)
Predição de ganhos genéticos em progênies de Eucalyptus benthamii Maiden & Cambage por diferentes métodos de seleção
The high productivity of eucalyptus forests in Brazil nowadays is a result of several factors, one of which is breeding, which contributed significantly to this advance. Recurrent selection can increase productivity over ...
Estimating codend size selectivity of bottom trawlnet in Chilean hake (Merluccius gayi gayi) fishery

Pollinator-mediated selection in a specialized pollination system: matches and mismatches among populations
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2010-09)
Most studies on pollinator-mediated selection have been performed in generalized rather than specialized pollination systems. This situation has impeded evaluation of the extent to which selection acts on attraction or ...
Stabilizing selection on nectar concentration in wild Petunia axillaris, as revealed by genetic analysis of pollen dispersal
Most animal-pollinated plants produce nectar as a pollinator reward. Despite the main role that nectar plays in plant-pollinator interactions, the impact of natural variation in nectar traits on realized male fitness is ...
Use of genomic and phenotypic selection in lines for prediction of testcrosses in maize I: grain yield and its components
Grain yield (GY) is a direct function of its components and these traits to being less complex and highly correlated with yield. The objectives of this study were to map Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) for GY and its components ...
