Two legume fatty acid amide hydrolase isoforms with distinct preferences for microbial- and plant-derived acylamides (open access)

Two legume fatty acid amide hydrolase isoforms with distinct preferences for microbial- and plant-derived acylamides

Article describes how analysis of FAAHs from multiple angiosperm species, which revealed two conserved phylogenetic groups that differed in key conserved residues in the substrate binding pocket. The authors combined computational and biochemical approaches to compare the structural and enzymatic properties of two FAAH isoforms in the legume Medicago truncatula designated MtFAAH1 MtFAAH2a.

Temperature dependent rate coefficients for the gas-phase OH + Furan-2,5-dione (C4H2O3, maleic anhydride) reaction (open access)

Temperature dependent rate coefficients for the gas-phase OH + Furan-2,5-dione (C4H2O3, maleic anhydride) reaction

Authors of the article assert that rate coefficients, k1(T), for the gas-phase reaction of the OH radical with Furan-2,5-dione (maleic anhydride (MA), C4H2O3), a biomass burning related compound, were measured under pseudo first-order conditions in OH using the pulsed laser photolysis - laser induced fluorescence method over a range of temperature and bath gas pressure. Their results are compared with a previous room temperature relative rate study of the OH + MA reaction and significant discrepancy between the studies is discussed. This is the accepted manuscript version of the published article.

Delayed Antarctic melt season reduces albedo feedback (open access)

Delayed Antarctic melt season reduces albedo feedback

Article discusses how Antarctica's response to climate change varies greatly both spatially and temporally. The authors used a 43-year record of Antarctic snow melt seasons from space-borne microwave radiometers with a machine-learning algorithm to show that both the onset and the end of the melt season are being delayed.

Sibling Aggression, Feeding Rates, and Hatch Rank of Nestling Red-Shouldered Hawks (Buteo lineatus) (open access)

Sibling Aggression, Feeding Rates, and Hatch Rank of Nestling Red-Shouldered Hawks (Buteo lineatus)

Article describes how, in many raptor species, hatching asynchrony results in a size hierarchy among nestlings, which may facilitate brood reduction by means of sibling aggression-induced mortality, especially in times of low food resources. The authors studied the influence of hatch rank, brood size, and brood age on aggression and feeding rates among Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus) nestlings in suburban southwestern Ohio.

The universal shape of the X-ray variability power spectrum of AGN up to z ∼ 3 (open access)

The universal shape of the X-ray variability power spectrum of AGN up to z ∼ 3

Authors of the article assert that they studied the ensemble X-ray variability properties of active galactic nuclei (AGN) over large ranges of timescale (20 ks ≤ T ≤ 14 yr), redshift (0 ≤ z ≲ 3), luminosity (1040 erg s−1 ≤ LX ≤ 1046 erg s−1), and black hole (BH) mass (106 ≤ M⊙ ≤ 109). The authors show that the data collected from archival observations and previous literature studies are fully consistent with a universal PSD form, which does not show any evidence for systematic evolution of shape or amplitude with redshift or luminosity, even if there may be differences between individual AGN at a given redshift or luminosity.

Combined influence of soil moisture and atmospheric humidity on land surface temperature under different climatic background (open access)

Combined influence of soil moisture and atmospheric humidity on land surface temperature under different climatic background

Article describes how soil moisture (SM) and atmospheric humidity (AH) are crucial climatic variables that significantly affect the climate system. However, the combined influencing mechanisms of SM and AH on the land surface temperature (LST) under global warming are still unclear. The authors systematically analyzed the interrelationships among annual mean values of SM, AH, and LST using ERA5-Land reanalysis data and revealed the role of SM and AH on the spatiotemporal variations of LST through mechanism analysis and regression methods.

Temporal complexity measure of reaction time series: Operational versus event time (open access)

Temporal complexity measure of reaction time series: Operational versus event time

Article describes how detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA) is a well-established method to evaluate scaling indices of time series, which categorize the dynamics of complex systems. The authors propose treating each reaction time as a duration time that changes the representation from operational (trial number) time n to event (temporal) time t, or X(t).

Thermal Stress Has Minimal Effects on Bacterial Communities of Thermotolerant Symbiodinium Cultures

Article comparing the microbial communities of three isolates from different species of the genus Symbiodinium (formerly known as Symbiodinium clade A) with different ecophysiology, levels of interaction with the animal host, and thermal adaptations.

Loss of Migratory Traditions Makes the Endangered Patagonian Huemul Deer a Year-Round Refugee in Its Summer Habitat (open access)

Loss of Migratory Traditions Makes the Endangered Patagonian Huemul Deer a Year-Round Refugee in Its Summer Habitat

This article analyzes the historical spatiotemporal behavior of the huemul (Hippocamelus bisulcus), an endangered deer endemic to Patagonia. Losing migratory traditions is a major threat, and may explain their presently prevalent skeletal diseases, reduced longevity, and lacking recolonizations for most remaining huemul subpopulations.
