Castles and Miller predict that below-replacement-level fertility and increasing ageing populations in developed countries will increase the demand for labour from the developing world. In addition, they envisage that “North Africa and Mexico may soon become zones of immigration” (p. 301). However, the authors did not point out ... integrating immigrants into their host societies. Another key strength of the book is that the authors provide guides to further reading at the end of each chapter. A website (www .age- of-migration.com) has been set up for further information. Apart from these strengths, the book contains a few relatively minor, though important, limitations. First, the authors
Does foraging performance change with age in female little penguins (Eudyptula minor)?

We then treated age as categorical variable by grouping them in three age classes following : class 1 for young birds (3 and 4 years, n = 7), class 2 for middle-aged ... deterioration at old age was found in wolves  and aboriginal human hunters , also supporting a curvilinear relation with age. Physiological deterioration at old age may be, however, balanced by increasing foraging experience until a certain age limit, which may well be related to our birds in the transition stage between middle age and old birds. ... studies of the influence of age on foraging performance are challenging because: 1) long-term demographic datasets are scarce  and, as in all age- related studies, it is difficult to have a various sample size in age up to old age and 2) at-sea behaviour can only be recorded by remote sensing technologies compared to studies on age- related breeding performance

Notch signaling mediates the age-associated decrease in adhesion of germline stem cells to the niche.
... GSCs is low, allowing them to persist in the niche; as ovaries age, Notch signaling in GSCs is elevated, resulting in the loss of GSCs from the niche. In contrast to GSCs, Notch signaling in niche cells (which is required for niche integrity) is decreased with age, thus contributing to age- induced GSC loss. We therefore demonstrate that both intrinsic ... hs-flpneoFRT19A/ubiGFPFRT19A. doi:10.1371/journal.pgen.1004888.g003 delays age- dependent GSC loss , raising the possibility that Notch signaling may be increased in GSCs with age, and mediate suppression of E-cadherin expression. To test this hypothesis, we examined Notch signaling in the GSCs of young and aged germaria using E(spl)m7-lacZ (Fig. 5A–D). Expression ... one-week-old germaria; E(spl)m7-lacZ expression was 68% lower in aged niche cap cells (n = 140) than in young cap cells (n = 154, P,0.001), supporting the known role of Notch signaling in niche maintenance , which declines with age. However, we observed a 20% increase of E(spl)m7-lacZ expression in aged GSCs (n = 54, P,0.05) as compared to their younger
