Raptors of the World
This volume, 20 years in the making, was primarily intended as a field guide and starts with a comprehensive listing of the 313 worldwide raptor species, grouped by order and family, listed withExpand
A genome–wide search for human non–insulin–dependent (type 2) diabetes genes reveals a major susceptibility locus on chromosome 2
The human genome is screened for susceptibility genes for NIDDM using non– and quasi-parametric linkage analysis methods in a group of Mexican American affected sib pairs and one marker, D2S725, showed significant evidence of linkage to NIDs and appears to be a major factor affecting the development of diabetes mellitus in Mexican Americans.

Correlations between the satellite-derived seasonal cycles of phytoplankton biomass and aerosol optical depth in the Southern Ocean: Evidence for the influence of sea ice
The relationship between the production of dimethylsulfide (DMS) in the upper ocean and atmospheric sulfate aerosols has been confirmed through local shipboard measurements, and global modelingExpand
Conservation status of the White-Bellied Sea-Eagle Haliaeetus leucogaster in Australia determined using mtDNA control region sequence data
It is suggested that the White-bellied Sea-Eagle Haliaeetus leucogaster population expanded from a bottleneck approximately 160,000 years ago during the late Pleistocene, and spread throughout the continent through a contiguous range expansion. Expand
Relative effectiveness of insulin pump treatment over multiple daily injections and structured education during flexible intensive insulin treatment for type 1 diabetes: cluster randomised trial
The results do not support a policy of providing insulin pumps to adults with poor glycaemic control until the effects of training on participants’ level of engagement in intensive self management have been determined, and both groups showed clinically relevant and long lasting decreases in HbA1c, rates of severe hypoglycaemia, and improved psychological measures.

Migration strategies revealed by satellite tracking among descendants of a population of European white stork (Ciconia ciconia) reintroduced to Belgium
AbstractMigration in the European white stork (Ciconia ciconia) has historically described a predictable annual cycle. The white stork is extensively distributed across continental Europe, whichExpand
Genetic differentiation between Australian and North American populations of the monarch butterfly Danaus plexippus (L.) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae): an exploration using allozyme electrophoresis
Allozyme analysis was used to address the question of the source of the Australian populations of the monarch butterfly Danaus plexippus, and predictably, Australian and Hawaiian populations had lower allelic diversity, but unexpected higher heterozygosity values than North American populations.

Isolation and characterization of a new suite of microsatellite markers in the European White Stork, Ciconia ciconia
Seven new microsatellite markers developed for C. ciconia that have been successfully combined in a series of multiplex PCR’s with six markers previously described for the Wood Stork are reported on. Expand
Global simulations of the impact on contemporary climate of a perturbation to the sea-to-air flux of dimethylsulfide
The sea-to-air flux of the biogenic sulfur (S) compound dimethylsulfide (DMS) is thought to constitute an important radiative impact on climate, especially in remote marine areas. PreviousExpand
Long-term variation in the distribution of the White-bellied Sea-Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster) across Australia
The White-bellied Sea-Eagle Haliaeetus leucogaster (Accipitridae) is widespread within Australia. However, in a number of states it is thought to be declining locally in response to human inducedExpand
