Phylogenetic positions of Mn2+-oxidizing bacteria and fungi isolated from Mn nodules in rice field subsoils
We isolated manganous ion (Mn2+) oxidizing bacteria and fungi from Mn nodules collected from two Japanese rice fields. The phylogenetic position of the Mn-oxidizing bacteria and fungi was determinedExpand

T4-type bacteriophage communities estimated from the major capsid genes (g23) in manganese nodules in Japanese paddy fields
Abstract The present study compared the capsid gene (g23) of T4-type bacteriophages (phages) in Mn nodules with those in the plow layer soil and subsoils of two Japanese paddy fields by applying theExpand

Maternal Defence of a Leaf Beetle is not Effective against Parasitoids but is against Pedestrian Predators
Females of the subsocial leaf beetle Gonioctena sibirica attend their broods on the willow Salix bakko. Females with broods settle on the underside of the basal part of leaves and face towards theExpand
