This article documents the addition of 512 microsatellite marker loci and nine pairs of Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) sequencing primers to the Molecular Ecology Resources Database. Loci were developed for the following species: Alcippe morrisonia morrisonia, Bashania fangiana, Bashania fargesii, Chaetodon vagabundus, Colletes floralis, Coluber(More)
A specific molecular diagnostic test was developed to aid in the identification of Australian Armillaria species. The test involves polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification using the primer pair A1F and A2R followed by restriction cleavage by Taq 1. Sample populations of the four predominant Australian species, A. luteobubalina, A. hinnulea, A. fumosa(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the demographics and risk factors of men who utilise the services of a municipal public sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinic with those who utilise the services provided by a non-public men's STD clinic operated by a not for profit primary care clinic. METHODS A record based review of the characteristics and STD prevalence of men(More)
Despite the significant attention that drugs and alcohol receive on college campuses, few resources and supports are available to students who are recovering from an addiction. Student affairs professionals are uniquely positioned to support these students with a variety of strategies. This article summarizes what is currently known about college students(More)
We identified 11 informative microsatellite loci in Tetratheca ericifolia from an (AG)(n) -enriched library. Using these loci on 32 individuals from two populations (16 individuals from each), we detected an average of 11.3 alleles per locus (range of five to 21, average expected heterozygosity of 0.728), of which 56% were unique to one population or the(More)
Objective: To compare the demographics and risk factors of men who utilise the services of a municipal public sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinic with those who utilise the services provided by a non-public men’s STD clinic operated by a not for profit primary care clinic. Methods: A record based review of the characteristics and STD prevalence of men(More)
In the present study, the Anxiety Sensitivity Index [ASI; Behav. Res. Ther. 24 (1986) 1] was administered to 282 American Indian and Alaska Native college students in a preliminary effort to: (a) evaluate the factor structure and internal consistency of the ASI in a sample of Native Americans; (b) examine whether this group would report greater levels of(More)
We identified 16 polymorphic nuclear microsatellite loci from an AG-enriched library of Ceratopetalum apetalum. These loci were tested across two populations of C. apetalum, a single population of C. gummiferum and representatives of four other congeneric taxa. Fourteen loci were identified as polymorphic in at least one other species. These microsatellites(More)
