5. Correlation between protein secondary structure and mechanical performance for the ultra-tough dragline silk of Darwin's bark spider.

The spider major ampullate (MA) silk exhibits high tensile strength and extensibility and is typically a blend of MaSp1 and MaSp2 proteins with the latter comprising glycine-proline-glycine-glycine-X repeating motifs that promote extensibility and supercontraction. The MA silk from Darwin's bark...

18. Use of the term harvest when referring to wild stock exploitation.

We contend that harvest is a misleading term when referring to wild organisms removed from natural systems and suggest that fishery professionals reserve the word for aquaculture products. When referring to wild stock extraction, replacing the word harvest with catch removes the implication of...
