Helvetic Henry? A Swiss adaptation of Henry V, or something near enough

Dutton, Elisabeth

In: Staging History: Essays in Late-Medieval and Humanist Drama, 2021, p. 247-266

This article describes the processes of translation, cutting and rearrangement by which Shakespeare’s Henry V, a play often identified with ‘Britishness’, is adapted for a modern Swiss audience. As a play celebrating a national ‘hero’ and a military history largely unknown to the Swiss, Henry V is adapted to an exploration of political power in the abstract, in particular the...

How much can bulk stores help reduce carbon footprint by limiting plastic food packaging ?

Jarel Rodriguez, Anaïs ; Milet, Emmanuel (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2020 ; TDIBM 67.

This report focuses on the quantity of food packaging waste consumed by an average single individual, residing in Switzerland. It is based on the household budget survey published by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO). This budget survey mentions the food quantities monthly consumed by a single individual and thus, the packaging waste could be computed accordingly. The objective is to compare...

Tissue-specific transcription footprinting using RNA PoI DamID (RAPID) in Caenorhabditis elegans

Gómez-Saldivar, Georgina ; Osuna-Luque, Jaime ; Semple, Jennifer I. ; Glauser, Dominique A. ; Jarriault, Sophie ; Meister, Peter

In: Genetics, 2020, vol. 216, no. 4, p. 931–945

Differential gene expression across cell types underlies development and cell physiology in multicellular organisms. Caenorhabditis elegans is a powerful, extensively used model to address these biological questions. A remaining bottleneck relates to the difficulty to obtain comprehensive tissue-specific gene transcription data, since available methods are still challenging to execute and/or...

Subfossil lemur discoveries from the Beanka Protected Area in western Madagascar

Burney, David A. ; Andriamialison, Haingoson ; Andrianaivoarivelo, Radosoa A. ; Bourne, Steven ; Crowley, Brooke E. ; Boer, Erik J. de ; Godfrey, Laurie R. ; Goodman, Steven M. ; Griffiths, Christine ; Griffiths, Owen ; Hume, Julian P. ; Joyce, Walter G. ; Jungers, William L. ; Marciniak, Stephanie ; Middleton, Gregory J. ; Muldoon, Kathleen M. ; Noromalala, Eliette ; Pérez, Ventura R. ; Perry, George H. ; Randalana, Roger ; Wright, Henry T.

In: Quaternary Research, 2020, vol. 93, no. 1, p. 187–203

A new fossil site in a previously unexplored part of western Madagascar (the Beanka Protected Area) has yielded remains of many recently extinct vertebrates, including giant lemurs (Babakotia radofilai, Palaeopropithecus kelyus, Pachylemur sp., and Archaeolemur edwardsi), carnivores (Cryptoprocta spelea), the aardvark-like Plesiorycteropus sp., and giant ground cuckoos (Coua). Many of these...

The Fossil Calibration Database, A New Resource for Divergence Dating

Ksepka, Daniel T. ; Parham, James F. ; Allman, James F. ; Benton, Michael J. ; Carrano, Matthew T. ; Cranston, Karen A. ; Donoghue, Philip C. J. ; Head, Jason J. ; Hermsen, Elizabeth J. ; Irmis, Randall B. ; Joyce, Walter G. ; Kohli, Manpreet ; Lamm, Kristin D. ; Leehr, Dan ; Patané, Josés L. ; Polly, P. David ; Phillips, Matthew J. ; Smith, N. Adam ; Smith, Nathan D. ; Tuinen, Marcel van ; Ware, Jessica L. ; Warnock, Rachel C. M.

In: Systematic Biology, 2015, vol. 64, no. 5, p. 853-859

Fossils provide the principal basis for temporal calibrations, which are critical to the accuracy of divergence dating analyses. Translating fossil data into minimum and maximum bounds for calibrations is the most important, and often least appreciated, step of divergence dating. Properly justified calibrations require the synthesis of phylogenetic, paleontological, and geological evidence...

Quantifying invasion risk: the relationship between establishment probability and founding population size

Duncan, Richard P. ; Blackburn, Tim M. ; Rossinelli, Silvia ; Bacher, Sven

In: Methods in Ecology and Evolution, 2014, vol. 5, no. 11, p. 1255–1263

1. Invasive species usually start out as small colonizing populations that are prone to extinction through demographic stochasticity and Allee effects, leading to a positive relationship between establishment probability and founding population size. However, establishment success also depends on the environment to which species are introduced: for a given species, some locations will be more...

Drosophila suzukii: the genetic footprint of a recent, world-wide invasion

Adrion, Jeffrey R. ; Kousathanas, Athanasios ; Pascual, Marta ; Burrack, Hannah J. ; Haddad, Nick M. ; Bergland, Alan O. ; Machado, Heather ; Sackton, Timothy B. ; Schlenke, Todd A. ; Watada, Masayoshi ; Wegmann, Daniel ; Singh, Nadia D.

In: Molecular Biology and Evolution, 2014, p. msu246

Native to Asia, the soft-skinned fruit pest Drosophila suzukii has recently invaded the United States and Europe. The eastern United States represents the most recent expansion of their range, and presents an opportunity to test alternative models of colonization history. Here we investigate the genetic population structure of this invasive fruit fly, with a focus on the eastern United States. We...
