132 Adler, Frederick R.Defended fortresses or moving targets? Another model of inducible defenses inspired by military metaphorsWe use a common framework to compare three models of plant strategies to confront herbivory: constitutive defense, optimal inducible defense, and the "moving target." Plants with constitutive defenses retain a fixed defensive phenotype. Plants with optimal inducible defenses respond to attack by inc...Constitutive defense; optimal inducible defense; phenotype1994
133 Olivera, Baldomero M.Defining a clade by morphological, molecular, and toxinological criteria: distinctive forms related to Conus praecellens A. Adams, 1854 (Gastropoda: Conidae)We carried out a definition of the Conus praecellens A. Adams, 1854, species group using a combination of comparative morphological data, molecular phylogeny based on standard genetic markers, and toxinological markers. Prior to this work, Conus praecellens was generally postulated to belong to a cl...Turriconus; 12SrRNA sequences; Phylogenetic analysis; Conus praecellens; Exogenes2010
134 Farmer, Colleen G.Dendrobates auratus (green and black poison dart frog).

Phelsuma laticauda was accidentally introduced from Madagascar in 1996 to the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Both species are well established in the Manoa Val...Dendrobates auratus; Phelsuma laticauda2007
135 Adler, Frederick R.Departure time versus departure rate: how to forage optimally when you are stupidForagers unable to leave a patch at the optimal moment must act as constrained foragers. Extending the results of Houston and McNamara (1985), we compare a blundering forager that leaves patches at a constant rate with an unconstrained optimal forager that leaves patches at the optimal time.Blundering Foragers; Foraging; Marginal Value Theorem1999
136 Capecchi, Mario R.Detection of targeted GFP-Hox gene fuogenesissions during mouse embry.The ability to use a vital cell marker to study mouse embryogenesis will open new avenues of experimental research.
