This research project investigates how photoassimilates moves from source leaves to other sink tissues that accumulate large amounts of carbohydrates. Many sinks such as stem and seeds/grains rely on the accumulation of sugars and starch during their development as they mature and become storage tissue.
Praying mantises are the only insects known to have stereo vision. We used a comparative approach to determine how the mechanisms underlying
stereopsis in mantises differ from those underlying primate stereo vision.
