A number of hypotheses have previously been developed concerning the rates of uptake and elimination of radiocaesium (137Cs) in fish. These include the influence of potassium and other water chemical parameters on both uptake and elimination, and the effect of fish size on accumulation. In order to test these hypotheses, we have assembled a data set(More)
This article represents a retrospective study of 12 patients with renal carbuncle treated at the combined urological services of The Mason Clinic in Seattle, Washington, and Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington. All patients were initially treated with antibiotics. Two recovered without further treatment. Of the 10 patients who failed to(More)
A 2(10-5) fractional factorial model was used to investigate the influence of 10 process variables in broth microdilution susceptibility tests with itraconazole against eight isolates of Candida species and six isolates of filamentous fungi in two growth media. An analysis of variance (ANOVA) indicated that glucose concentration and incubation time both(More)
It is often argued that the quality of science is related to the possibilities of making accurate predictions. It has also long been argued that due to the complex nature of ecosystems, it will never be possible to predict important target variables, especially with more comprehensive dynamic models. New results in radioecology have, however, demonstrated(More)
The aim of this study is to assess the use of polymeric cartridges with diode array detection to extract the main low-molecular mass phenolic compounds from red wine samples. This method expanded and improved permitted to quantify 20 compounds in red wines made and aged under different conditions. These conditions included aging in barrels and in tanks with(More)
Wood of Quercus pyrenaica has suitable properties for the wine ageing process. However, the forest available for the barrel making from this particular type of tree is very limited. Nevertheless, it is highly advisable to use this kind of wood in order to manufacture alternative oak products. This study presents the results of ageing the same red wine using(More)
Peromyscus difficilis (J. A. Allen, 1891) is a cricetid rodent commonly called the southern rock deermouse or Zacatecan deermouse. It is of medium body size for the genus (28–43 g), with large ears and a long, evenly bicolored tail that is always slightly longer than the head plus body length. It is 1 of 56 species in the genus Peromyscus and includes 5(More)
