As ‘clock’ RNA and protein levels subsequently fall, however, gene transcription becomes reactivated. Specific course requirements in anthropology, psychology, biology, philosophy, and primate studies give students a solid academic background, which is enriched by opportunities for field work, research, and husbandry training.

H. (2012): Reduction in predator defense in the presence of neighbors in a colonial fish. Kamil et al. provided blue jays with a foraging environment in which the probability distribution of prey availability within patches was controlled experimentally. While some distasteful species synthesise their own noxious chemicals, others, such as monarchs, sequester them from their food, the highly toxic milkweed plant (Asclepias curassavica).
