A fossil-calibrated time-tree of all Australian freshwater fishes

Amy Tims, Simon Ho & Peter Unmack
Australian freshwater fishes are a relatively species-poor assemblage, comprising a small number of Gondwanan lineages and a number of groups derived from repeated freshwater invasions by marine ancestors. In addition to being a comparatively small assemblage, they are both highly endemic and highly threatened. However, a comprehensive phylogeny for these taxa is lacking, which has hampered efforts to study their phylogenetic diversity, distribution of extinction risk, speciation rate, and rates of trait evolution. Here, we...

Mental health literacy of primary school teachers: A scoping review

Jacqueline Frei, Joanne Beames, Aliza Werner-Seidler & Jennie Hudson
The aims of this scoping review are to first, identify the current literature investigating mental health literacy of primary school teachers; second, describe any available evidence-based interventions including how they were designed and by whom; and finally, provide recommendations for future research in this area.

Diet shift in a non-anadromous salmon: the effect of length on increased piscivorous feeding and trophic position.

Daniel Johnson & Drew Allen
Trophic ecology via isotope analysis is a functional way to predict the position of a consumer within the ecosystem it inhabits (Post, 2002). For this study, I aim to define trophic position changes and fish predation or piscivorous feeding in relation to size increase in a population of non-anadromous kokanee salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka), in the Jo-Jo Lake of south-west Alaska. Previous studies have shown these fish to exhibit planktivorous feeding, with some exceptions (Nelson JS,...

Avian vampire fly (Philornis downsi) intensity and mortality

Lauren K Common, Petra Sumasgutner, Rachael Y Dudaniec, Diane Colombelli-Negrel & Sonia Kleindorfer
In invasive parasites, generalism is considered advantageous during the initial phase of introduction. Thereafter, fitness costs to parasites, such as host-specific mortality, can drive parasites towards specialism to avoid costly hosts. It is important to determine changes in host specificity of invasive populations to understand host-parasite dynamics and their effects on vulnerable host populations. We examined changes in mortality in the introduced avian vampire fly (Philornis downsi) (Diptera: Muscidae), a generalist myasis-causing ectoparasite, between 2004...

Evaluating evidence of mitonuclear incompatibilities with the sex chromosomes in an avian hybrid zone

Daniel Hooper, Kelsie A Lopez, Callum S McDiarmid, Simon Griffith & Irby Lovette
The exploration of hybrid zones and the intergenomic conflicts exposed through hybridization provide windows into the processes of divergence and speciation. Sex chromosomes and mitonuclear incompatibilities have strong associations with the genetics of hybrid dysfunction. In ZW sex-determining systems, maternal co-inheritance of the mitochondrial and W chromosomes immediately exposes incompatibilities between these maternal contributions of one species and the Z chromosome of another. We analyze mitochondrial and Z chromosome admixture in the long-tailed finch (Poephila...

Rates of attraction of cane toad tadpoles to chemicals

Richard Shine
Chemical cues produced by late-stage embryos of the cane toad (Rhinella marina) attract older conspecific larvae, which are highly cannibalistic and can consume an entire clutch. To clarify the molecular basis of this attraction response, we presented captive tadpoles with components present in toad eggs. As previously reported, attractivity arises from the distinctive toxins (bufadienolides) produced by cane toads, with some toxins (e.g., bufagenins) much stronger attractants than others (e.g., bufotoxins). Extracts of frozen toad...

Performing under threat, impact of anxiety on marksmanship performance in tactical occupations: a systematic review and a meta-analysis

Daniel Cooper, Tim Doyle, Joel Fuller & Jodie Wills
To conduct a meta-analysis and systematic review of the current literature on the impact of marksmanship performance between conditions of low and high perceived pressure. As well as the effectiveness of current research intervention methods on improving performance from conditions of low to high perceived pressure.

The Motion Silencing Effect in Static and Dynamic Orientation Change Detection: Experiment 1

Tabea-Maria Haase, Anina Rich, Iain Gilchrist & Chris Kent
This experiment is based upon the results of Crowe, Howard, Gilchrist, and Kent (2021) who explored the effect of motion on visual search in a change event task. The authors developed a dynamic visual search task, which involved monitoring the display for a critical change event, to investigate the effect that dynamic stimuli may have on the detection of a feature change in visual search (Crowe, Howard, Gilchrist, & Kent, 2021). Participants needed to search...

2020 NRAUS Australia New Zealand Food Category Cost Dataset

Michelle Blumfield, Carlene Starck, Tim Keighley, Peter Petocz, Anna Roesler, Elif Inan-Eroglu, Tim Cassettari, Skye Marshall & Flavia Fayet-Moore
This Australian and New Zealand food category cost dataset was created to inform diet and economic modelling for low and medium socioeconomic households in Australia and New Zealand. The dataset was created according to the INFORMAS protocol, which details the methods to systematically and consistently collect and analyse information on the price of foods, meals and affordability of diets in different countries globally. Food categories were informed by the Food Standards Australian New Zealand (FSANZ)...

Understanding the visual constraints on lexical processing: New empirical and simulation results (Experiment 3)

Aaron Veldre, Lili Yu, Sally Andrews & Erik Reichle
It is well known that visual acuity is not uniform across the visual field. Acuity instead decreases precipitously from the center of vision. The region of maximum acuity, called the fovea, is comprised of the central 2º of the visual field, with a region of rapidly decreasing acuity called the parafovea extending an additional 5º of visual angle to either side of this. Although the photoreceptors required for perceiving fine detail are largely limited to...

Fish avoid visually noisy environments where prey targeting is reduced

Joanna Attwell, Christos Ioannou, Chris Reid & James Herbert-Read
The environment contains different forms of ecological no­­­ise that can reduce the ability of animals to detect information. Here we ask whether animals adapt their behaviour to either exploit or avoid areas of their environment with increased dynamic visual noise. Three-spined sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus) were immersed into environments with a simulated form of naturally occurring visual noise – moving light bands that form on underwater substrates caused by the refraction of light through surface waves....
