Recovery of Cytopathogenic Agent from Chimpanzees with Goryza
A number of human beings, particularly adolescents and young adults, have antibodies in their sera directed against the coryza agent suggesting that these individuals have experienced infection with the new agent or one closely related to it. Expand
The Effect of Radio Transmitters on the Behavior of Common Murres and Razorbills during Chick Rearing
Birds with the external aerial spent less time in the colony, were absent for long continuous periods, and often returned without a fish for the chick, but this did not reduce fledging success because their mates compensated by increasing the food brought in. Expand
The common bacterial toxins hypothesis of sudden infant death syndrome.

The hypothesis is that some cases of sudden infant death syndrome are due to the lethal effects of nasopharyngeal bacterial toxins which can act synergistically to trigger the events leading to death. Expand
Diving behaviour of the shag Phalacrocorax aristotelis (Aves: Pelecaniformes) in relation to water depth and prey size
It is calculated that, on average, birds spent 8-10 sec (36-48%) longer on the bottom at any given depth in 1989, which suggested that the higher prey capture rates were associated with an increase in duration of the bottom phase of the dive. Expand
The nasopharyngeal bacterial flora in infancy: effects of age, gender, season, viral upper respiratory tract infection and sleeping position.
In infants aged 12-18 months the combination of prone sleeping with URTI and an early morning swab led to increased carriage of staphylococci, streptococci and Gram-negative bacilli which are not normally part of the nasopharyngeal flora. Expand
The effects of altitude on heavy-duty diesel truck on-road emissions.
On-road measurements of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitric oxide from 5772 heavy-duty diesel trucks at five locations in the United States and Europe show slightly increasing emissions withExpand
Diving behaviour of guillemot Uria aalge, puffin Fratercula arctica and razorbill Alca tor da as shown by radio‐telemetry
There were marked differences in diving performance between the species with the order of ranking, in descending order of dive and pause duration, being guillemot, razorbill and puffin. Expand
Diving behaviour and diet of the blue-eyed shag at South Georgia
Predicted aerobic dive limits suggested that during long dives, blue-eyed shags were probably sustained by anaerobic metabolism, and predicted capture rates for the commonest recorded prey (small fish) differ markedly between the two diving strategies. Expand
Staphylococcal toxins and sudden infant death syndrome.
Investigation in rats showed that SEC, or a bacterial toxin with epitopes in common, could have a pathogenic role in SIDS, and the presence of these toxins was confirmed in kidney homogenates using electrophoresis and immunoblotting. Expand
The nasopharyngeal bacterial flora in the sudden infant death syndrome.
The nasopharyngeal bacterial flora in babies who had died of the sudden infant death syndrome and in healthy infants aged 2 weeks to 6 months and provides baseline data for investigating the hypothesis that common bacterial toxins are involved in the pathogenesis of SIDS. Expand
