The ability of three common tick species from Georgia to maintain and transmit the causative agent of Lyme disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, was compared under laboratory conditions. A B. burgdorferi cotton rat isolate (MI-6) from Florida was selected as a strain from the south, and the SH2-82 isolate from New York was used as a positive control. Amblyomma(More)
ABSTRACT To assess the diversity of Acidovorax avenae subsp. citrulli, 121 strains from watermelon, cantaloupe, and pumpkin were compared using pulse field gel electrophoresis of SpeI-digested DNA and gas chromatographic analysis of fatty acid methyl esters. Twenty-nine unique DNA fragments resulted from DNA digestion, and 14 distinct haplotypes were(More)
A new, unusual spirochete was cultured in Barbour-Stoenner-Kelly (BSK II) medium from the midgut and other tissues of the tick Ixodes dentatus. The tick was collected from leaf litter in an oak-pine wood lot in Bibb County approximately 7.2 km from Macon in central Georgia during February 1993. Characterization by indirect immunofluorescence using 5 murine(More)
This is the first report of natural infection by Borrelia burgdorferi in the cotton rat Sigmodon hispidus. Nine B. burgdorferi isolates were obtained from ear tissues, urinary bladders, or both, by culturing tissues in BSKII medium. The rat from which the SI-3 isolate was cultured was from the same site (Sapelo Island, Georgia) as an infected cotton mouse(More)

Attached, please find the meeting minutes of the FIFRA Scientific Advisory Panel open meeting held in Arlington, Virginia on November 15 16, 2006. This report addresses a set of scientific issues being considered by the Environmental Protection Agency pertaining to studies evaluating the impact of surface coatings on the level of dislodgeable arsenic,(More)
As urban models in system dynamics are extremely complex if an area is subdivided in many dynamic and interacting areas, managing complexity of the urban network interactions is essential. A recently developed interregional model of The Netherlands illustrates the implementation of the spatial dimension in urban dynamics. The model describes 40(More)
Radar transmitter emission criteria normally include the specification of frequency-dependent emission masks. These masks specify the amount by which unwanted radar emissions (both out-of-band and spurious) must be suppressed relative to the power levels emitted at the radars’ fundamental frequencies. Compliance with emission masks is determined through(More)
