Solid and aqueous phase Al species are recognized to affect organic matter (OM) stabilization in forest soils. However, little is known about the dynamics of formation, composition and dissolution of organo-Al hydroxide complexes in microbiallyactive soil systems, where plant litter is subject to microbial decomposition in close proximity to mineral(More)
Assays for tumor mutations need to be sufficiently sensitive that a mutation can be readily detected in a high background of wild-type sequence. We have evaluated competitive allele-specific oligonucleotide (cASO) hybridization, the amplification refractory mutation system (ARMS), and a combination of cASO with mutant-enriched polymerase chain reaction(More)
Coastal restoration strategies in the Mississippi River Delta Plain include use of direct sediment additions as well as river diversions to reintroduce fresh water and sediments into coastal marshes. Often, these diversions are located in the upper parts of the coastal basins, where fresh water floating marshes predominate. Floating marshes are wetlands of(More)
