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.

A Three-Dimensional Functional Assessment of Heart and Vessel Development int he Larva of the Zebrafish (Danio rerio)

Description: This article describes the use of a three-dimensional integration of the early zebrafish heart and vessels to greatly reduce measurement error of stroke volume and cardiac output and to determine the cross-sectional growth of major vessels in the developing zebrafish larvae.

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.

Metabolic Allometry during Development and Metamorphosis of the Silkworm Bombyx mori: Analyses, Patterns, and Mechanisms

Description: This article studies the silkworm Bombyx mori, and hypothesizes that allometric relationships for metabolism both across all developmental stages and within each stage would not reflect conventional scaling coefficients.

Egg yolk environment differentially influences physiological and morphological development of broiler and layer chicken embryos

Description: This article investigates the effect of breed-specific yolk composition on embryonic broiler and layer chicken phenotypes, using an ex ovo, xenobiotic technique that allows the transfer of broiler and layer chicken embryos from their natural yolks to novel yolk environments.

Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill as a Case Study for Interdisciplinary Cooperation within Developmental Biology, Environmental Sciences and Physiology

Description: This article makes the argument for interdisciplinary teams that bring together scientists with different specialties as an efficient way--and perhaps the only way--to unravel highly complex biological effects of marine oil spills.

Phenotypic developmental plasticity induced by preincubation egg storage in chicken embryos (Gallus gallus domesticus)

Description: This article investigates how preincubation egg storage conditions (temperature, duration, hypoxia, and hypercapnia) affects viability, body mass, and physiological variables and functions in day 15 chicken embryos.

Reduced Heart Rate and Cardiac Output Differentially Affect Angiogenesis, Growth, and Development in Early Chicken Embryos (Gallus domesticus)

Description: This article demonstrates for the first time that different processes in the ontogeny of the early vertebrate embryo (i.e., hypertrophic growth vs. development) have differential sensitivities to altered convective blood flow.

Salt sensitivity of the morphometry of Artemia franciscana during development: a demonstration of 3D critical windows

Description: This article uses a 3D conceptual farmework of 'critical windows' to examine whether the morphometry of Artemia franciscana is altered by salinity exposure during certain key periods of development.
