- Ecological correlates of body size in relation to cell size and cell number: patterns in flies, fish, fruits and foliageJeff Arendt
Department of Biology Riverside, University of California, Riverside, CA 92521 6000, USA
Biol Rev Camb Philos Soc 82:241-56. 2007..For example, the latitudinal pattern in D. melanogaster is usually assumed to be due to temperature, but the cellular pattern does not match that seen in laboratory selection at different temperatures...
- Convergence and parallelism reconsidered: what have we learned about the genetics of adaptation?Jeff Arendt
Department of Biology, University of California Riverside, 900 University Avenue, Riverside CA 92521, USA
Trends Ecol Evol 23:26-32. 2008..We can simplify our vocabulary; all instances of the independent evolution of a given phenotype can be described with a single term - convergent...
- Influence of sprint speed and body size on predator avoidance in New Mexican spadefoot toads (Spea multiplicata)Jeffrey David Arendt
Department of Biology, University of California at Riverside, Riverside, CA 92521, USA
Oecologia 159:455-61. 2009..Such conflicts, coupled with spatio-temporal variation in predation pressure, may be important in maintaining genetic variation for trade-offs...
- Morphological correlates of sprint swimming speed in five species of spadefoot toad tadpoles: comparison of morphometric methodsJeff Arendt
Department of Biology, University of California, Riverside, CA 92521 6000, USA
J Morphol 271:1044-52. 2010..Faster swimmers also had deeper tails, especially in the posterior half of the tail. This pattern would have been missed in standard linear morphometrics which usually only measures maximum tail depth...
- Size-fecundity relationships, growth trajectories, and the temperature-size rule for ectothermsJeffrey D Arendt
Department of Biology, University of California at Riverside, Riverside, California 92521 6000, USA
Evolution 65:43-51. 2011..The greater increase in fecundity offsets costs of delayed maturation in cold environments, favoring a larger size at maturation. This can explain many cases of crossing growth trajectories, not just in relation to temperature...
