Distribution of ergot alkaloids and ricinoleic acid in different milling fractions
After harvesting even simple contact of sclerotia with bulk grains during ordinary handling or movement of bulk grain in the granary is sufficient to contaminate all the healthy or sound rye grains with ergot alkaloids. Expand
Diversity and endemism of ciliates inhabiting Neotropical phytotelmata
The data show the number of potential Neotropical phytotelmata-endemic ciliate species increasing as more phytolmata are sampled, and the supposed endemics are mainly recruited from moss and ephemeral limnetic habitats, which shows that the bromeliad ciliate fauna is quite distinct from those of otherLimnetic habitats.

Morphological and Molecular Characterization of Some Peritrichs (Ciliophora: Peritrichida) from Tank Bromeliads, Including Two New Genera: Orborhabdostyla and Vorticellides.
Using standard methods, the morphology and 18S rDNA sequence of some peritrich ciliates from tank bromeliads of Costa Rica, Jamaica, and Ecuador are studied and Vorticella gracilis is neotypified with the Austrian population studied by Foissner (1979). Expand
