Xenorhabdus luminescens (DNA hybridization group 5) from human clinical specimens.
An unusual isolate from a human leg wound was identified as Xenorhabdus luminescens. This finding led to the discovery or isolation of four additional strains, two from blood and two from wounds.Expand

Recent and fossil resins from New Zealand and Australia
The carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance spectra of fossil resins from New Zealand and Australia have been compared with those of modern and semifossilized materials. The great majority of theExpand

Amber: the organic gemstone.
Resins are produced by woody plants on a worldwide basis. We have found several distinct classes of modern diterpenoid resins based phenomenologically on the solid-state (13)C NMR spectra of the bulkExpand

Étude du parasitisme des simulies (Diptera, Simuliidae) par des Mermithidae (Nematoda) en Afrique de l'Ouest : description de deux nouvelles espèces de Gastromermis
From material collected by R. Le Berre in 1972 and by J. J. Petersen and B. Mondet in 1975, two new species of Mermithidae are described from blackfly larvae, including Simulium damnosum s.l., forExpand

Serratia marcescens as a pathogen of tsetse flies.
When applied to the ears of rabbits used as hosts for tsetse flies, the bacterium Serratia marcescens produced significant mortality in populations of Glossina m. morsitans and G. pallidipes. AfterExpand
