A systematic review protocol: social network analysis of tobacco use
van der Sterren,
Systematic Reviews 2014, 3:85 (8 August 2014)
Evidence suggests that behaviors such as tobacco use are influenced by social networks, and that social networks can influence behaviors. Therefore, this systematic review will assess social network analysis of tobacco use, to inform policy and practice in this area, along with highlight gaps for future research.
How do climate-linked sex ratios and dispersal limit range boundaries?
BMC Ecology 2014, 14:19 (10 July 2014)
The geographic range and population dynamics of species in which the sex-ratio is determined by temperature, such as some reptiles, is influenced by dispersal to a greater extent than species in which the sex-ratio is genetically determined.

In an interconnected world: joint research priorities for the environment, agriculture and infectious disease
Infectious Diseases of Poverty 2014, 3:2 (28 January 2014)
The UNICEF/UNDP/World Bank/WHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) recently released a technical report identifying joint research priorities that can advance the research agenda on environment, agriculture and infectious diseases of poverty. This paper reviews the report and highlight key messages for policy-makers, funders and researchers. Image: Joint research priorities for the environment, agriculture and infectious disease.
Karyotypic analysis and FISH mapping of microsatellite motifs reveal highly differentiated XX/XY sex chromosomes in the pink-tailed worm-lizard ( Aprasia parapulchella, Pygopodidae, Squamata)
Molecular Cytogenetics 2013, 6:60 (18 December 2013)
Karyotypic ananalysis indicates that the processes underlying the evolution of sex chromosomes in legless lizards involved chromosome rearrangements and accumulation and amplification of repeats.
