We report here the sequencing and analysis of the genome of the thermophilic bacterium Carboxydothermus hydrogenoformans Z-2901. This species is a model for studies of hydrogenogens, which are diverse bacteria and archaea that grow anaerobically utilizing carbon monoxide (CO) as their sole carbon source and water as an electron acceptor, producing carbon… (More)
Natal dispersal is an important component of bird ecology, plays a key role in many ecological and evolutionary processes, and has important conservation implications. Nevertheless, detailed knowledge on natal dispersal is still lacking in many bird species, especially raptors. We review and compile existing information from five tagging programmes of… (More)
—Complete stability analyses, including voltage, small perturbation and transient stability studies, and the associated models and controls of a Series Vectorial Compensator (SVeC) are presented in this paper. A full comparative evaluation of this controller with respect to controllers used mainly for oscillation control in transmission corridors, namely,… (More)
A novel molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) of high interest for room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) sensing systems is described; the synthesized MIP contains iodine as internal heavy atom in the polymeric structure and its applicability for RTP sensing of fluoranthene at microg L(-1) levels is demonstrated.
A hyperthermophilic Thermotoga sp. strain PD524 was isolated from a hot spring in Northern Thailand. Cells were long-curved rods (0.5–0.6 × 2.5–10 μm) surrounded by a typical outer membrane toga. Strain PD524 is aero-tolerant at 4 °C but is aero-sensitive at 80 °C. A heat resistant subpopulation was observed in late-stationary phase. Cells from… (More)
β-Proteobacteria is one of the most abundant phylum in soils, including autotrophic and heterotrophic ammonium-consumers with relevance in N circulation in soils. The effects of high-temperature events and phytosanitary treatments, such as copper amendments, on soil bacterial communities relevant to N-cycling remain to be studied. As an example, South… (More)
Background: This formative study sought to explore the factors that influence the consumption of fish and seafood among 4–6 year old children in the Perth metropolitan area. Focus groups were conducted with mothers of young children to gain insights into the enablers and barriers to regular seafood consumption in children, and the knowledge, attitudes and… (More)
