    Microplastic Extraction from Marine Vertebrate Digestive Tracts, Regurgitates and Scats: A Protocol for Researchers from All Experience Levels
    Authors:  Amy L. Lusher and Gema Hernandez-Milian, date: 11/20/2018, view: 752, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] It is essential to provide a protocol for the separation and identification of microplastics in marine vertebrates (mammals, birds, turtles and fish) that is easy to follow and adaptable depending on research infrastructure. Digesting organic material is an effective way to analyze samples for microplastics. Presented here is an optimized protocol ...
    An Inexpensive and Comprehensive Method to Examine and Quantify Field Insect Community Influenced by Host Plant Olfactory Cues
    Authors:  Rupesh Kariyat, Jesus Chavana and Jasleen Kaur, date: 08/20/2018, view: 702, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Insect pollinators, herbivores and their natural enemies use olfactory cues emitted by their host plants to locate them. In insect-plant ecology, understanding the mechanisms underlying these interactions are of critical importance, as this bio-communication has both ecological and agricultural applications. However, the first step in such ...
