Sex-specific maternal programming of corticosteroid binding globulin by predator odour

Sameera Abuaish, Sophia Lavergne, Benjamin Hing, Sophie St-Cyr, Richard Spinieli, Rudy Boonstra & Patrick McGowan
Predation is a key organizing force in ecosystems. The threat of predation may act to program the endocrine hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis during development to prepare offspring for the environment they are likely to encounter. Such effects are typically investigated through measurement of corticosteroids (Cort). Corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG) plays a key role in regulating the bioavailability of Cort, with only free unbound Cort being biologically active. We investigated the effects of prenatal predator odour exposure (POE) in...

Sebastes genomic islands of divergence

Kristen Behrens, Quinn Girasek, Alex Sickler, John Hyde & Vincent Buonaccorsi
Depth separation is a proposed driver of speciation in marine fishes, with marine rockfish (genus Sebastes) providing a potentially informative study system. Sebastes rockfishes are commercially and ecologically important. This genus encompasses more than one hundred species and the ecological and morphological variance between these species provides opportunity for identifying speciation-driving adaptations, particularly along a depth gradient. A reduced-representation sequencing method (ddRADseq) was used to compare 95 individuals encompassing six Sebastes species. In this study,...
