Microarray analysis of selection lines from outbred populations to identify genes involved with nematode parasite resistance in sheep.
Gastrointestinal nematodes infect sheep grazing contaminated pastures. Traditionally, these have been controlled with anthelmintic drenching. The selection of animals resistant to nematodes is anExpand

Gene expression profiling of Naïve sheep genetically resistant and susceptible to gastrointestinal nematodes
BackgroundGastrointestinal nematodes constitute a major cause of morbidity and mortality in grazing ruminants. Individual animals or breeds, however, are known to differ in their resistance toExpand

Influence of Agricultural Practices on the Levels of DDT and Its Residues in Soil.
DDT residues in soils resulting from past applications of DDT to pasture are of concern due to the uptake and accumulation of these residues by stock. In this paper, we report the results of a studyExpand

The mitigation potential of hippuric acid on N2O emissions from urine patches: an in situ determination of its effect.
Abstract Previous laboratory studies have demonstrated that hippuric acid, a ruminant urine constituent, can mitigate nitrous oxide (N 2 O) emissions from simulated urine patches. Hippuric acid hasExpand

Bacterial and fungal communities in the rhizosphere of field-grown genetically modified pine trees (Pinus radiata D.).
This study assessed the impact of Pinus radiata (D. Don) genetically modified (GM) by biolistic insertion of the LEAFY and nptII genes on rhizosphere microbial communities of field grown trees.Expand

Occurrence and impact of pasture mealybug (Balanococcus poae) and root aphid (Aploneura lentisci) on ryegrass (Lolium spp.) with and without infection by Neotyphodium fungal endophytes
Abstract Pasture mealybug (Balanococcuspoae) was found infesting two field trials evaluating the performance of selected strains of the endophyte Neotyphodium lolii in ryegrass (Lolium spp.) inExpand

East meets west: adaptive evolution of an insect introduced for biological control.
1. A possible explanation for low success rates when introducing natural enemies to new regions for biological control of insect pests is that they fail to adapt to their new conditions. Therefore itExpand
