The assumption of a reliable instrument and other pitfalls to avoid when considering the reliability of data

Description: This article helps researchers avoid common pitfalls associated with reliability including incorrectly assuming that measurement error always attenuates observed score correlations, different sources of measurement error originate from the same source, and reliability is a function of instrumentation.

Multireference Character for 4d Transition Metal-Containing Molecules

Description: This article proposes new criteria, namely T₁ ≥ 0.045, D₁ ≥ 0.120, and %TAE ≥ 10%, as a gauge for 4d transition metal-containing molecules to predic the possible need to employ multireference (MR) wave function-based methods to describe energetic and spectroscopic properties.

Epigenetics as a source of variation in comparative animal physiology - or - Lamarck is lookin' pretty good these days

Description: This article discusses the ecological and and evolutionary significance of such epigenetic inheritance in a comparative physiological context, and provides a number of caveats and warnings regarding the interpretation of transgenerational phenotype modification as a true epigenetic phenomenon.

Buruli Ulcer Disease and Its Association with Land Cover in Southwestern Ghana

Description: This article presents the first analysis of Buruli ulcer at the village level in southwestern Ghana, where prevalence rates are among the highest globally, and explores fine and medium-scale associations with land cover by comparing patterns both within Buruli ulcer clusters and surrounding landscapes.

Interspecific Differences in Metabolic Rate and Metabolic Temperature Sensitivity Create Distinct Thermal Ecological Niches in Lizards (Plestiodon)

Description: This article examines three congeneric lizards from the southeastern United States (Plestiodon fasciatus, P. inexpectatus, and P. laticeps) and hypothesizes that interspecific differences in metabolic temperature sensitivity locally segregates them across their total range.

Epigenetics and transgenerational transfer: a physiological perspective

Description: This review discusses how the concepts of epigenetics and maternal effects both overlap with, and are distinct from each other, analyzes examples of existing animal physiological studies based on these concepts, and offers a construct by which to integrate these concepts into the design of future investigations in animal physiology.

Inverted Social Reward: Associations between Psychopathic Traits and Self-Report and Experimental Measures of Social Reward

Description: This article describes two studies of individuals with high levels of psychopathic traits. Study 1 explores what aspects of social reward are associated with psychopathic traits, and Study 2 administers these measures to a new group of participants along with two experimental tasks investigating monetary and social reward value.
