Modelling growth of brown trout, Salmo trutta, in terms of weight and energy units
1. The chief objectives were: (i) to compare two growth models, one based on weight and the other on energy, using the same data set for the analyses; (ii) to discover if weight and energy units canExpand
DNA evidence for morphological and cryptic Cenozoic speciations in the Anaspididae, ‘living fossils’ from the Triassic
The phylogenetic analyses revealed that the Anaspides morphotype conceals at least three cryptic species belonging to different parts of its range, which suggests that the speciation rate in this group does not correlate with its low extinction rate or morphological conservatism. Expand
Influence of soil quality on the function of inhibitory rhizobacteria
Evidence is presented showing that the plant‐inoculum interaction can be strongly influenced by cropping system management or soil type, and field trials conducted without consideration of soil quality factors and carrier delivery systems will be of dubious value when evaluating the performance of allochthonous micro‐organisms in soil.

Population structure of Haliotis rubra from South Australia inferred from nuclear and mtDNA analyses
No molecular evidence suggests that the putative H. conicorpora individuals sampled from South Australia belong to a separate species, suggesting a panmictic population model for these South Australian abalone populations. Expand
Population regulation in adult, but not juvenile, resident trout (Salmo trutta) in a Lake District stream
This study is probably the first to provide clear evidence for fish population regulation in the adult, rather than the juvenile, stage of a resident trout population. Expand
Cloning , Expression , Purification , and Biological Activity of Recombinant Native and Variant Human arl-Antichymotrypsins
Human al-antichymotrypsin has been cloned, sequenced and expressed in Escherichia coli and recombinant protein as well as point-specific mutants have been purified and characterized. The correctedExpand
The epidemiology of powdery mildew on tomatoes
Results of the research indicate that susceptibility to infection by L. tuuricu is independent of leaf age, and daytime temperatures during the growing season often exceed 86" to 95°F during powdery mildew epidemics but cool night-time temperatures are apparently sufficient to permit infection by the fungus.

AlJozymic vanatlOn in nine protein producing loci was examined in three species of Pardosa using starch gel electrophoresis. Allozyme frequencies showed a high degree of geographic uniformity amongExpand
