Experimental data support the conclusion that cutaneous chytridiomycosis is a fatal disease of anurans, and it is hypothesize that it is the proximate cause of these recent amphibian declines.
A META‐ANALYSIS OF THE PREDICTORS OF ADULT OFFENDER RECIDIVISM: WHAT WORKS!*
Meta-analytic techniques were used to determine which predictor domains and actuarial assessment instruments were the best predictors of adult offender recidivism. One hundred and thirty-one studies…
Predicting Prison Misconducts
A meta-analysis was conducted on 39 studies that generated 695 correlations with prison misconducts. Predictors of prison misconducts were grouped into 16 domains as follows: (a) personal…
Is the PCL-R Really the “Unparalleled” Measure of Offender Risk?
The declaration that the Psychopathy Checklist–Revised (PCL-R) is the “unparalleled” measure of offender risk prediction is challenged. It is argued that such an assertion reflects an ethnocentric…

The results extend the understanding of the types of organisms from which metazoa and fungi may have evolved and establish a novel, statistically supported clade of small-subunit rRNA genes from these parasites.
Perkinsus, a protistan parasite of abalone in Australia: A review
Molecular studies have indicated that there is a single species of Perkinsus in Australia that is widespread in abalone and bivalves from the Great Barrier Reef and South Australia but is not found in molluscs in Tasmania; this parasite, P. olseni, is similar to P. atlanticus from Portugal but different from P. marinus in North America.

The Effects of Prison Sentences on Recidivism1
Three schools of thought dominate the area. The first is that prisons definitely suppress criminal behaviour. Given the unpleasantness of prison life and the negative social stigma associated with…
