By Goswami, Anjali Prochel, Jan The common European mole (Talpa europaea) has been the focus of many studies because of its fossorial lifestyle and related sensory and postcranial specializations. However, because of extensive fusion and pneumatization of the adult skull, many aspects of the cranial morphology of T. europaea are poorly understood. Here we present the 1st detailed study of cranial development in T. europaea, using an ontogenetic series of cleared and stained prenatal...

By Gilliam, Frank S Despite a growing awareness that the herbaceous layer serves a special role in maintaining the structure and function of forests, this stratum remains an underappreciated aspect of forest ecosystems. In this article I review and synthesize information concerning the herb layer's structure, composition, and dynamics to emphasize its role as an integral component of forest ecosystems. Because species diversity is highest in the herb layer among all forest strata, forest...

By Zimmerman, Beverly B Paul, Danette In this article, we argue that mentoring of technical communication students must occur within the classroom. In our survey of students, we found that most students felt they had not been mentored. In our ethnography, we found that although students could define the term mentor, many were conflicted about its value. This confusion made students less likely to seek out or recognize mentoring opportunities. Students recognized mentoring practices that...

By Jaffee, David Abstract. First-year programs and freshman learning communities (FLCs) have become an institutionalized feature of the higher- education landscape. Although a vast amount of literature asserts the positive consequences of these programs, less attention has been devoted to the unintended, and occasionally negative, consequences of FLCs. The author identifies the formation of the "peer cohort" as the central intended consequence of FLCs that also produces unintended student...
