Hemodynamic data from the Inspired Therapeutics NeoMate Mechanical Circulatory Support System for neonates and infants as tested in static mock circulatory loops, dynamic mock circulatory loops, and acute animal studies

Gretel Monreal, Steven Koenig, Mark Slaughter, Gino Morello, Steven Prina, Landon Tompkins, Jiapang Huang, Barry Gellman & Kurt Dasse
Inspired Therapeutics (Merritt Island, FL) is developing a mechanical circulatory support (MCS) system designed as a single driver with interchangeable, extracorporeal, magnetically levitated pumps. The NeoMate system design features an integrated centrifugal rotary pump, motor, and controller that will be housed in a single compact unit. Conceptually, the primary innovation of this technology will be the combination of disposable, low-cost pumps for use with a single, multi-functional, universal controller to support multiple pediatric cardiopulmonary indications....

Selection on dispersal drives evolution of metabolic capacities for energy production in female wing‐polymorphic sand field crickets, Gryllus firmus

Lisa Treidel, Lisa A. Treidel, Gessen S. Quintanilla Ramirez, Dillon J. Chung, Michael A. Menze, José P. Vázquez‐Medina & Caroline M. Williams
Life history and metabolism covary, but the mechanisms and individual traits responsible for these linkages remain unresolved. Dispersal capability is a critical component of life history that is constrained by metabolic capacities for energy production. Conflicting relationships between metabolism and life histories may be explained by accounting for variation in dispersal and maximal metabolic rates. We used female wing-polymorphic sand field crickets, Gryllus firmus, selected either for long wings (LW) and flight-capability or short wings...

Tropical tree species differ in damage and mortality from lightning

Stephen P. Yanoviak, Jeannine Richards, Evan Gora, Cesar Gutierrez, Jeffrey Burchfield & Phillip Bitzer
Lightning is an important agent of mortality for large tropical trees with implications for tree demography and forest carbon budgets. We evaluated interspecific differences in susceptibility to lightning damage using a unique dataset of systematically located lightning strikes on Barro Colorado Island, Panama. We measured differences in mortality among trees damaged by lightning and related those to damage frequency and tree functional traits. Eighteen of 30 focal species had lightning mortality rates that deviated from...
