Abstract:
The silent killer for decades in the farming industry is nematodes. Possibly ridding plants of this microscopic roundworm by 2020 is the root knot nematode experiment. This research project, backed by the Gates Foundation, is being undertaken by AgBiome, a biochemical company in Durham.

Abstract:
Among UNC Asheville’s institutional strengths is fostering its undergraduates’ ability to produce quality primary research. For its students, research output experience and publication credentials enhances their graduate school prospects. Research endeavors having an impact off campus included building infrared lasers, studying cognitive games’ effects, and incorporating depictions of emotion in art.

Abstract:
On Axel Heiberg Island, adventure was found for the author in ways that went beyond being part of a team collecting samples for astrobiological research. It was found in adjusting to the absence of modern conveniences easily taken for granted, such as comfortable indoor plumbing. It was also found in realizing that “habitable” becomes redefined by habituating in the North Pole.

Abstract:
Atlantic menhaden fish were collected from purse-seine catches at Reedville, Virginia and Beaufort, North Carolina in 2003. The fork length to total length and length to weight relationships are presented to help investigators have more precise biostatistical information on forage fishes.

Abstract:
The blue ghost firefly (Phausis reticulata) is a lampyrid beetle found in the southern Appalachians, observed primarily in May and June. Its behavior and habitat were observed at several locations in North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, and South Carolina from 1997 through 2008.

Abstract:
Pine voles are rodents found in the Eastern part of the United States, and occupy a range of habitats including dry hardwood forests and orchards. A study conducted on pine voles in Henderson County, North Carolina found that reproductive success, pup survivorship, and pup growth did not differ between different types of habitat.

Abstract:
Dr. Jason Bond, professor of biology at East Carolina, has just received three National Science Foundation grants to study spiders and millipedes. The research will focus on cataloging species from around the world, examining biodiversity and evolutionary biology with the aid of undergraduate and graduate students.

Abstract:
Researchers affiliated with UNC’s Laboratories for Reproductive Biology are working on a vaccine that could serve as birth control for men. They discovered a protein critical to movement of sperm cells. Targeting the protein could stop sperm from making it to the female reproductive tract.

Abstract:
There are sixteen species of the red algal order Rhodymeniales reported from North Carolina waters, but there has been confusion over their taxonomic rank and classification. Phylogenetic analyses reveal a number of species differences, suggesting that Asteromenia is not a monotypic genus.

Abstract:
Various theories have attempted to explain color abnormalities in the southern flounder (Paralichthys lethostigma). Specimens of southern flounder were collected in Core Sound, North Carolina and examined. Observations contradict previous theories and suggest ambicoloration and abnormalities may be the result of other developmental factors.

Abstract:
The wood-feeding cockroach Cryptocercus harbors wood-digesting protists related to those in the guts of termites. The protest symbionts of a population of Cryptocercus from northeast Georgia were examined to determine if species-specific bacteria are associated with the protists.

Abstract:
There is a diverse freshwater silica-scaled chrysophycean algal flora for the Carolina Piedmont and Mountain Regions, including several new taxa. This study presents an account of the scale-bearing chrysophytes from the Carolina Coastal Region, which were observed using scanning and transmission electron microscopy.
