Sunning themselves in heaps, knots, and snarls: The extraordinary abundance and demography of island watersnakes
(Ecology and Evolution, 2018)
Snakes represent a sizable fraction of vertebrate biodiversity, but until recently, data on their demography have been sparse. Consequently, generalizations regarding patterns of variation are weak and the potential for ...
Student Engagement Fund Project: Grassland Birds
This paper is a summary of the work I did under Heather Herakovich for her research project "Grassland bird response to bison and prairie vegetation restoration." A short data analysis of parasitism of the field sparrow ...
Frenemy Music? Jazz and the Aural Imaginary in Wartime Japan
(Memoria e Ricerca: Rivista di storia contemporanea, 2018-05)
In my 2001 book Blue Nippon: "Authenticating Jazz in Japan", I argued that despite an attempted «total jazz ban», the music survived as «salon/light music» or «hidden jazz», and that musicians from the interwar jazz age ...
Simulations of beam optics and bremsstrahlung for high intensity and brightness channeling radiation
This paper presents X-ray spectra of channeling radiation expected at the FAST (Fermi Accelerator Science andTechnology) facility in Fermilab. Our purpose is to produce high brightness quasi-monochromatic X-rays in anenergy ...
Micro-bunching for generating tunable narrow-band THz radiation at the FAST photoinjector
This paper presents expected THz radiation spectra emitted by micro-bunched electron beams produced using a slit-mask placed within a magnetic chicane in the FAST (Fermilab Accelerator Science and Technology) electron ...
Dissemination of imidacloprid through dairy cattle manure and its effect on the biological control agent, Spalangia endius (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), and a filth fly host, Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae)
Filth flies, including house flies, Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae), develop in animal manure. Adult house flies often are controlled with pesticides such as imidacloprid. How imidacloprid disseminates and persists ...
Mating status effects on sexual response of males and females in the parasitoid wasp Urolepis rufipes.
Although mate preferences are most commonly examined in females, they are often found in both sexes. In the parasitoid wasp Urolepis rufipes, both female and male mating status affected certain aspects of sexual interactions. ...
Benefit of polyandry in a monandrous species when females mate with already mated males
Female mating frequency varies among animal taxa. A benefit to females of remating has usually been found, but almost all tests have been with polyandrous species. A species being monandrous does not guarantee that mating ...
