Symposium Abstracts

1987 Journal of Psychopharmacology  
Published research on the number of chromosomes of selected isolates was used to identify a relationship in speciation of these nematodes.  ...  These groups corresponded to differences in chromosomal number. We hypothesised a route of geographical migration and speciation of these two nematodes by estimating the chronology of speciation.  ...  We have performed a microevo-lutionary approach with the nematode vulva as a model system to de ne how a cell lineage varies during evolution.  ...

Exploitation of Super(de)wettability via Scalable Hierarchical Surface Texturing [article]

William Sai Yau Wong, University, The Australian National, University, The Australian National
Today, its revival can be attributed to biomimetics (engineering mimicry / imitation of life) and a revolutionized understanding behind super(de)wetting mechanisms that are found in nature.  ...  Between 1804 and 1805, Thomas Young described the concept of a wetting contact angle, which controls the equilibrium shape of a fluid droplet on a surface, thus making wettability a quantified branch of  ...  More details about the model outline are reported elsewhere.  ...
