ii For some time, grasshopper scouts and supervisors have desired a practical means of identifying common species of grasshoppers in both nymphal and adult stages. The consensus of ideas of APHIS and ARS personnel focused on a field guide that would picture in color not only the adults but also all nymphal instars. In addition the guide should include(More)
Interlinking data coming from different sources has been a long standing goal [4] aiming to increase reusability, discoverability, and as a result the usefulness of information. Nowadays, Linked Open Data (LOD) tackles this issue in the context of semantic web. However, currently most of the web data is stored in relational databases and published as(More)
BACKGROUND Offering financial incentives to achieve medication adherence in patients with severe mental illness is controversial. AIMS To explore the views of different stakeholders on the ethical acceptability of the practice. METHOD Focus group study consisting of 25 groups with different stakeholders. RESULTS Eleven themes dominated the discussions(More)
IMPORTANCE People with severe mental illness (SMI), including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, have excess rates of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Risk prediction models validated for the general population may not accurately estimate cardiovascular risk in this group. OBJECTIVE To develop and validate a risk model exclusive to predicting CVD events in(More)
The accurate diagnosis of parasitic nematode infections in livestock (including sheep and goats) is central to their effective control and the detection of the anthelmintic resistance. Traditionally, the faecal egg count reduction test (FECRT), combined with the technique of larval culture (LC), has been used widely to assess drug-susceptibility/resistance(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate the association of lipoprotein and triglyceride levels with all-cause mortality in a population free from diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) at baseline. The European Guidelines on cardiovascular disease prevention state that in general total cholesterol (TC) should be < 5 mmol/L (190 mg/dL) and low-density(More)
Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi known to cause plant growth depressions in tomato were examined for their biocontrol effects against root rot caused by Pythium aphanidermatum. The main hypothesis was that plant growth suppressive AM fungi would elicit a defence response in the host plant reducing Pythium root rot development. To test this hypothesis a(More)
Strengths assessments focus on the individual's talents, abilities, resources, and strengths. No systematic review of strengths assessments for use within mental health populations has been published. The aims of this study were to describe and evaluate strengths assessments for use within mental health services. A systematic review identified 12 strengths(More)
This analysis provides an assessment of reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that could be achieved by Title III of the amendment in the nature of a substitute to H. and reflects a significantly revised reference case recently released by the Environmental Protection Agency. To account for the effects of different components of H.R. 2454, reduction(More)
Sclerotinia sclerotiorum is a worldwide pathogen with a broad host spectrum pathogenic to around 400 plant species. Sclerotia formed by S. sclerotiorum serve as resting structures that secure fungal survival in soil for prolonged periods in the absence of a host plant or may help to overcoming periods of unsuitable growth conditions. In the present study,(More)
