... their new molecular-scale dosing devices as a new paradigm for precise control of drug dosing using light. The devices consist of medications that are combined with certain chemical compounds that respond to light in ways that release precisely controlled amounts of the drug. Drug release begins when light f...

...e overgrowth effect as nutrient enrichment. This paradigm could have major repercussions for management of coastal ecosystems, considering the research and management emphasis of recent decades on nutrient control. Especially if upper trophic levels have been altered, nutrient reduction is unlikely to help ...

Following the paradigm that transients are most vocal when feeding, these results suggest that more feeding occurred at night when it is not possible to observe them visually. This acoustic information is a valuable supplement to traditional visual observations, and is she...
