These findings contradict anecdotal evidence of reduced weight loss during(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether hydatidosis occurs in cattle bred in the northern region of the Northern Territory. DESIGN A survey utilising two stage sampling was designed to provide 95% confidence of detecting hydatids in cattle with a herd prevalence of 10% and animal prevalence of 10%. PROCEDURE For a 1 year abattoir killing season, lesions from the(More)
The first high quality, YBaZCu,O,., thin films have been produced by MOCVD using the novel fluorinated and non-fluorinated precursors, [ ~ a ( ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ) ~ . t e t r a ~ l y m e ] ' , [Cu(TDFND)?] and [Y(TMHD),.~-'BUP~NO]' and the traditional 8-diketonate complexes [~(TMHD),]' and [Cu(TMHD)J. The novel precursors are thermally stable and highly volatile.(More)
