The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) has been in operation since 2000 April. This paper presents the Tenth Public Data Release (DR10) from its current incarnation, SDSS-III. This data release includes the first spectroscopic data from the Apache Point Observatory Galaxy Evolution Experiment (APOGEE), along with spectroscopic data from the Baryon Oscillation(More)
Esterase profiles were examined for over 40 populations of the whitefly, Bemisia tabaci, obtained from native and cultivated plant hosts worldwide. Twelve unique electromorphs were identified from distinct populations concentrated largely in Central America, Africa, and India. One electromorph, type B, has recently been proposed as a separated species,(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of primary blast injury (PBI) on survival and the physiological response to resuscitation after hemorrhagic shock. BACKGROUND Air-blast injury is a significant clinical problem that can reduce blood oxygenation and modify the response to hemorrhage. PBI has specific physiological effects that have not been fully(More)
ABSTRACT Macroptilium lathyroides, a perennial weed in the Caribbean region and Central America, is a host of Macroptilium yellow mosaic Florida virus (MaYMFV) and Macroptilium mosaic Puerto Rico virus (MaMPRV). The genomes of MaYMFV and MaMPRV were cloned from M. lathyroides and/or field-infected bean and the DNA sequences were determined. Cloned A and B(More)
We observed 10 sea lampreys (Petromyzon marinus) parasitizing basking sharks (Cetorhinus maximus), the world's second largest fish, in the Bay of Fundy. Due to the high concentrations of urea in the blood and tissues of ureosmotic elasmobranchs, we hypothesized that sea lampreys would have mechanisms to eliminate co-ingested urea while feeding on basking(More)
BACKGROUND Most cases of oesophageal food bolus impactions (FB) are one-off events, but recurrence is recognised. The aims of this study are to establish the recurrence rate of food bolus impaction and to identify features associated with recurrence. METHODS Clinical records of all FB cases were reviewed and the following information was recorded (patient(More)
We determine the maximum lifetime t max of 58 FRII radio jets found in 29 central group galaxies from cross correlation of the Berlind SDSS group catalog with the VLA FIRST survey. Mock catalogs of FRII sources were produced to match the selection criteria of FIRST and the redshift distribution of our parent sample, while an analytical model was used to(More)
We examine the properties of 18 long period (80 − 210 days) and very luminous (median absolute magnitude of M I = −7.86 and M V = −6.97) Cepheids to see if they can serve as an useful distance indicator. We find that these Ultra Long Period (ULP) Cepheids have a relatively shallow Period-Luminosity (PL) relation, so in fact they are more " standard candle(More)
The ability of two species of nematophagous fungi, Arthrobotrys oligospora and Arthrobotrys flagrans (syn. Trichothecium flagrans, Duddingtonia flagrans), to control the development of infective larvae in feces from naturally infected horses was assessed in vitro. The horses were from a farm where it had been previously established that cyathostomes(More)
