Seasonal change in the intensity of fish predation affects succession in lake zooplankton communities. Predation affects not only the zooplankton prey, but also their parasites. Because the ability of a parasite to spread depends in part on the death rate of the hosts, seasonal reductions in the intensity of predation on zooplankton could lead to parasite(More)
The F1 population “Harostar” × “Rouge de Mauves” was used to perform a quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping for tree architecture traits (i.e., tree diameter, total branch number, tree shape); time to initial reproductive bud break; and fruit quality traits (i.e., ground color, fruit form, soluble solid content) using data collected from 2010 to 2012.

Serosurveys indicate that bank voles, field voles and woodmice are probably reservoir hosts of cowpox virus in western Europe, although virus has not yet been isolated from these species. In this study, bank voles, field voles, woodmice and laboratory mice were shown to be susceptible to combined intradermal and subcutaneous inoculation with 3-20(More)
Fire blight, caused by Erwinia amylovora, is a major disease threat to apple, pear and other pome fruit worldwide. The disease is widespread in Europe and has recently become established in Switzerland. Antibiotics are the most effective controls used in North America but these are not permitted for agricultural use in most European countries. A newly(More)
Xanthomonas arboricola pv. pruni causes bacterial spot of stone fruit resulting in severe yield losses in apricot production systems. Present on all continents, the pathogen is regulated in Europe as a quarantine organism. Host resistance is an important component of integrated pest management; however, little work has been done describing resistance(More)
The study of medical evacuation records from offshore installation workers indicates that dental pathology is a significant problem. Dental evacuations (dentivacs) account for the highest single category of medical evacuation (medivacs). Dentivacs result in human suffering and are the cause of many lost man hours for the major oil operators in the United(More)
