Lactating New Zealand (NZ) sea lions (Phocarctos hookeri) exhibit different foraging patterns during their foraging trips, with benthic divers spending more energy at sea than mesopelagic conspecifics. We compared blubber fatty acids (FAs) of 14 benthic and 12 mesopelagic females captured at the Auckland Islands, NZ subantarctic, in late January 2000 using an analysis of similarities (ANOSIM).

In humans, axonal injury is a common result of traumatic brain injury, and can be due to direct trauma to axons or to ischaemic damage secondary to trauma. ‘Shaken baby syndrome’, which has been described in human infants, is characteri ...
