227 Armentrout, Peter B.Collision-induced dissociation processes of Nb4+ and Fe4+: fission vs. evaporationDespite the extensive effort devoted to research on gasphase metal clusters, quantitative thermodynamic data on such species are scarce. Such information is key to understanding and predicting the physical and chemical properties of clusters. Presently, bond energies are available primarily for tr...Metal clusters; Nobium ions; Iron ions; Fission; Evaporation1988
228 Coley, Phyllis D.; Kursar, Thomas A.Colonization of tropical rain forest leaves by epiphylls: effects of site and host plant leaf lifetimeIn humid tropical regions, leaves are frequently colonized by epiphylls (Richards 1954, Pocs 1978, 1982). Lichens and liverworts usually dominate, although mosses, algae, and cyanobacteria can also occur (Winkler 1971, Smith 1982). The interactions between epiphylls and host leaves have not been wel...Tropical forest; Epiphylls; Panama; Hybanthus prunifolius; Light interception1993
229 Olivera, Baldomero M.Combined proteomic and transcriptomic interrogation of the venom gland of conus geographus uncovers novel components and functional compartmentalizationCone snails are highly successful marine predators that use complex venoms to capture prey. At any given time, hundreds of toxins (conotoxins) are synthesized in the secretory epithelial cells of the venom gland, a long and convoluted organ that can measure 4 times the length of the snail's body. In...2014-01-01

231 Ailion, David CharlesCommensurability and defect-induced phason gaps in incommensurate systemsThe phason energy gap has been observed to increase on going from the incommensurate to higher-order commensurate phases in the "devil's staircase" compound [N(CH3)4]2ZnCl4. The gap was determined via the phason-induced 1 4N spin-lattice relaxation contribution, which was obtained from the variati...Phasons; Commensurate; Incommensurate; Lattices; Modulation1985

236 Saam, BrianComment on pressure dependence of wall relaxation in polarized 3He gaseous cellsZheng et al. [Zheng, Gao, Ye, and Zhang, Phys. Rev. A 83, 061401(R) (2011)] have measured a strong linear pressure dependence of the nuclear relaxation rate of 3He in glass cells typically used to generate and/or store polarized 3He at room and cryogenic temperatures. Their interpretation is that th...2012-01-01
237 Saam, BrianComment on: New limit on lorentz-invariance- and CPT-violating neutron spin interactions using a free-spin-precession 3He- 129Xe comagnetometerIn Ref. [1], the authors use a classical result for the magnetic field created by a uniform magnetization to analyze the effects of magnetic interactions between 3He and 129Xe nuclear spins. We point out that the classical result is not applicable for interaction between nuclear spins: the actual in...2014-01-01
238 Clayton, Dale H.Common grackle anting with lime fruit and its effect on ectoparasitesAnting is stereotyped behavior in which birds ex- pose themselves to fluid-secreting ants or other pun- gent substances. During "active" anting a bird crush- es an ant in the bill and rubs it frenetically through its plumage (Rothschild and Clay 1952). During "passive" anting a bird entices ants to ...Quiscalus quiscala; Columbicola columbae; Anting; Ectoparasites1993
