The benefits of spatial management zones, such as marine protected areas (MPAs), for such animals are unclear. To help fill this knowledge gap, we examined core habitat use areas (CHUAs) for bull (Carcharhinus leucas), great hammerhead(More)
Spontaneous or therapy-induced depigmentation in patients with melanoma has long been considered a favourable prognostic indicator. In this report, we isolated T cells infiltrating the depigmented skin of an HLA-A2+/DR4+ patient with melanoma, and detected a very high frequency of CD8+ T cells specific for melanocortin receptor 1 (MC1R), a hormone receptor(More)

Coral bleaching is well documented on shallow, tropical reefs; however, there are few published records of coral bleaching on high latitude (>26 ), deeper (>20 m) reefs (see Harrison et al. 2011 for a recent example of bleaching on a high latitude, shallow reef). High latitude, deeper reefs are thought to be less affected by thermal stress and therefore may(More)
BACKGROUND Student occupational therapists experience particular challenges in the learning and practicing of occupation-centred practice (OCP) techniques with children. PURPOSE This study aimed to identify factors that facilitate mastery of OCP from both students' and practice educators' perspectives. METHODS Nine student occupational therapists and(More)
