Pattern of Invasion of a Nonindigenous Cyprinid and Potential Shifts in Native Fish Assemblage Structure 

Best, Alice (2014-05-12)
Invasive species increasingly threaten global biodiversity with faunal homogenizations and are of specific concern in the highly diverse aquatic systems of the Southeast United States. However, patterns of invasion and ...

Patterns and rates of ecological diversification among Neotropical cichlid fishes 

Burress, Edward (2017-07-25)
The rapid rise of phenotypic diversity and corresponding ecological roles is an emblematic pattern of cichlid evolution, particularly within clades of the East African Great Lakes. Herein, I evaluate the phenotypic and ...

Patterns of Budget Agent Interaction as Indicators of Internal Transparency in the Budget Processes of Three Southeastern States: A Step Toward Normative Budget Theory 

Payne, Kimberly (2019-04-23)
The budget process in any state is more than the structural hierarchy, budget calendars and procedures, and the technical preferences of the day, it is also a network of budget agents interacting to complete the budget. ...

Patterns of Host Use in Mosquitoes: Implications for Virus Transmission 

Burkett-Cadena, Nathan (2010-04-07)
Mosquitoes do not feed indiscriminately among hosts, but demonstrate various patterns of host use. Each mosquito species may specialize in feeding within a group of related hosts or may utilize a wide variety of hosts. ...

Patterns of Parasite Infection Dynamics during a Biological Invasion 

Melissa, Miller (2017-11-30)
Biological invasions may impact native ecosystems by affecting host-parasite dynamics. Introduced species can harbor parasites transported from their native range and these parasites can spillover to infect native taxa, ...

Patterns of Stress and Suitability of Camera Surveys for White-Tailed Deer
