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.

A novel statistical method for rare-variant association studies in general pedigrees

Description: In this paper, the authors discuss a novel statistical method for rare-variant association studies in general pedigrees for quantitative traits. This method uses a retrospective view that treats the traits as fixed and the genotypes as random, which accounts for complex and undefined ascertainment of families.

Further Numerical Analyses on the Solubility of Sulfapyridine in Ethanol + Water Mixtures

Description: This article aims to correlate the solubility of sulfapyridine and sulfadiazine in ethanol + water mixtures by means of the Jouyban-Acree model, and to evaluate the preferential solvation of sulfapyridine in these mixtures by using the inverse Kirkwood-Buff integrals.
