Bringing real world applications for wireless sensor networks into the classroom: Telemetric monitoring of water quality in an artificial stream [2012]

Description: This report discusses research on aquatic sensors and telemetric monitoring of water quality in an artificial stream with the use of a wireless sensor networks (WSN) using the ZigBee protocol to remotely monitor an artificial aquatic ecosystem. This research is part of Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) in Sensor Education, a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded grant project.

Cardiac and metabolic physiology of early larval zebrafish (Danio rerio) reflects parental swimming stamina

Description: This article explores swimming stamina in fish. Mature adult zebrafish (Danio rerio) were subjected to a swimming performance test and then bred within performance groups to discover if enhanced swimming stamina in offspring appears only in juveniles/adults, or if these traits appear as early as larvae.

Effect of selection for commercially productive traits on the plasticity of cardiovascular regulation in chicken breeds during embryonic development

Description: Article investigates basic cardiovascular physiology in the Red Junglefowl, the broiler, and the White Leghorn breeds at 90% of incubation. The authors aimed to identify breed-specific features of arterial blood pressure and heart rate as well as the physiological mechanisms regulating them. They concluded that selection for rapid growth shifts cardiovascular regulatory plasticity to emphasize mechanisms that modulate pressure, and that selection for egg-laying capacity emphasizes mechanisms that modulate heart rate.

Cardiac and metabolic physiology of early larval zebrafish (Danio rerio) reflects parental swimming stamina

Description: Article describes experiment in which mature adult zebrafish (Danio rerio) were subjected to a swimming performance test that allowed separation into low swimming stamina or high swimming stamina groups in order to determine if inherited traits that support enhanced swimming stamina in offspring appear only in juveniles and/or adults, or if these traits actually appear earlier in the morphologically quite different larvae.

Constraints-based stoichiometric analysis of hypoxic stress on steroidogenesis in fathead minnows, Pimephales promelas

Description: This article presents a study in which an in silico genome-scale metabolic model of steroidogenesis is used to investigate the effects of hypoxic stress on steroid hormone productions in fish. This article introduces a powerful model for pathway analysis that can lend insights on the effects of various stressor scenarios on metabolic functions.
