- Behavioral reduction of infection riskJ M Kiesecker
School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale University, Greeley Memorial Lab, 370 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT 06511, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 96:9165-8. 1999..Such facultative modulations of disease infection risk may have critical consequences for the population dynamics of disease organisms and their impact on host populations...
- Complex causes of amphibian population declinesJ M Kiesecker
Department of Biology, The Pennsylvania State University, 208 Mueller Laboratory, University Park, Pennsylvania 16802 5301, USA
Nature 410:681-4. 2001..Elevated sea-surface temperatures in this region since the mid-1970s, which have affected the climate over much of the world, could be the precursor for pathogen-mediated amphibian declines in many regions...
- Synergism between trematode infection and pesticide exposure: a link to amphibian limb deformities in nature?Joseph M Kiesecker
Department of Biology, Pennsylvania State University, 208 Mueller Laboratory, University Park, PA 16802 5301, USA

- Searching for the physiological mechanism of density dependence: does corticosterone regulate tadpole responses to density?Lisa K Belden
Department of Biology, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, Pennsylvania 16802, USA
Physiol Biochem Zool 80:444-51. 2007..We suggest that the physiological response to density may vary across the range of natural densities and that the role of corticosterone may be limited to periods of extreme high density, such as during pond-drying events...
- Effect of predator diet on life history shifts of red-legged frogs, Rana auroraJoseph M Kiesecker
Department of Biology, The Pennsylvania State University, University Park 16802 5301, USA
J Chem Ecol 28:1007-15. 2002..The result suggests that red-legged frogs exhibit a life history shift in response to predatory cues and that this response is dependent on the diet of predators...
- Survivorship patterns of larval amphibians exposed to low concentrations of atrazineSara I Storrs
Department of Biology, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, Pennsylvania, USA
Environ Health Perspect 112:1054-7. 2004..This may be particularly important for compounds that produce greater mortality at lower doses than higher doses, a pattern characteristic of many endocrine disruptors...
- Epidermal 'alarm substance' cells of fishes maintained by non-alarm functions: possible defence against pathogens, parasites and UVB radiationDouglas P Chivers

- WETLAND URBANIZATION GRADIENTS AND VECTOR BORNE DISEASESJOSEPH KIESECKER; Fiscal Year: 2002..Development of mathematical models for these trematode systems will provide a template for studies of other snail borne diseases with similar community modules, for example, schistosomiasis. ..
