Abstract:
Naked soles (Gymnachirus melas) are now known from 108 specimens collected between 1951 and 2003 off North Carolina ocean waters. Standard lengths, total lengths, capture depths, and capture locations of the naked soles were documented, but much remains unknown about their distribution, abundance, and biology.

Abstract:
Biological features of five species of carangid fishes (African pompano, Atlantic bumper, rainbow runner, leatherjack, and cottonmouth jack) were examined. Abundance and presence of all five species in ocean or inland waters of North Carolina were influenced by habitat or water conditions.

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:
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:
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:
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:
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:
In order to determine the effect of removing rough fish on the population growth rate of game species, biologists must first work on removing those rough species, namely grindle, carp, and gar from test areas. An operation of nets is placed to remove the fish.
