Currently, the use of isotopic ratio as corroborative evidence in criminal trials is explored. Beyond the analytical challenges that have been reported elsewhere, the crucial issue of the interpretation of analytical results in a fair and balanced way remains poorly documented. The aim of this paper is to propose a likelihood ratio approach for the(More)
Chlorate and perchlorate compounds, used as herbicides, solid fuel propellants, and explosives, are increasingly recognized as pollutants in groundwater. Stable isotope characterization would permit both environmental monitoring of extent of remediation and forensic characterization. Stoichiometric reduction to chloride (greater than 98% yield), by Fe(II)(More)
This paper reviews research being undertaken by ILRI and collaborators to identify Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) for resistance to gastrointestinal (GI) nematodes in the resistant East African Red Maasai sheep and in inbred strains of mice. Six F1 rams, crosses of Red Maasai (resistant) and Dorper (susceptible) sheep, were bred and then backcrossed to pure(More)
