[1/6] #Climatechange can affect #amphibians indirectly, but few studies look at changes in size or #morphology
For my MSc by research @DICE_Kent I’m deciphering crest growth in #GreatCrestedNewts at individual and population levels. 🐸🦎

[2/6]
Male #GCNs grow ornamental crests every year during aquatic breeding period.
As UK seasons become less distinct, #pond arrival times are less predictable.
So what is happening with #crest development?🧐

[3/6]
We photographed >100 individual #newts over 2 breeding periods and tracked changes in crest size + shape using #ImageJ software.

Does early arrival = Early growth peak?
Or ⬆ growth period i.e. potential mating advantage?

1. Whenever we look at blood films everything appears 2D, but red cells are in fact 3D. What do they actually look like? Be ready to be mind blown. #itsathread πŸ‘‡πŸΎ

2. Normal red blood cells (erythrocytes) are disciform / biconcave in shape and appear on the blood film with a lighter area in the middle known as 'central pallor'. This usually spans 1/3 of the diameter of the cell.

3. Reticulocytes are usually larger than normal red blood cells and they appear blueish due to staining of residual ribosomal RNA left after the nucleus is removed. Only the most immature reticulocytes appear polychromatic (blueish).

Let's go back to the basics today, and talk about some #morphology in the #dermatology exam.

Today's #tweetorial/#medthread will be about evaluating....

SCALE!

Before we get too far into it, how do we think about #scale? Meaning, which one of the following is it?
2/
When we say "primary lesion," we mean the most basic element of a lesion/rash (papule, macule, patch, plaque etc).

SECONDARY CHANGE (which scale is) means the extra exam element that occurs on top of the primary lesion!

Tertiary/Quaternary isn't a thing. I'm just a jerk.
