Infection of organ transplant recipients with herpesviruses, especially cytomegalovirus (CMV), has been an important barrier to successful transplantation. Measures to prevent CMV infection have evolved based on the biology and epidemiology of the virus. Recently, community-acquired respiratory viruses have been recognized as an important cause of morbidity(More)
We study arbitrary-order Hermite difference methods for the numerical solution of initial-boundary value problems for symmetric hyperbolic systems. These differ from standard difference methods in that derivative data (or equivalently local polynomial expansions) are carried at each grid point. Time-stepping is achieved using staggered grids and Taylor(More)

Genetic monitoring of tiger source populations is a conservation priority, yet due to low sample sizes and poor DNA quality, scat DNA has failed to produce the powerful studies needed to inform management decisions in humid, tropical landscapes. Here, we report the first successful extraction of DNA from tiger scent marks, a hitherto neglected genetic(More)
Fostering local community tolerance for endangered carnivores, such as tigers (Panthera tigris), is a core component of many conservation strategies. Identification of antecedents of tolerance will facilitate the development of effective tolerance-building conservation action and secure local community support for, and involvement in, conservation(More)
