Determining population viability of rare insects depends on precise, unbiased estimates of population size and other demographic parameters. We used data on the endangered St. Francis' satyr butterfly (Neonympha mitchellii francisci) to evaluate 2 approaches (mark-recapture and transect counts) for population analysis of rare butterflies. Mark-recapture(More)
As delphinid populations become increasingly exposed to human activities we rely on our capacity to produce accurate abundance estimates upon which to base management decisions. This study applied mark-recapture methods following the Robust Design to estimate abundance, demographic parameters, and temporary emigration rates of an Indo-Pacific bottlenose(More)
DMSO differentiated U937 cells responded to 10(-6) M LTD4, LTB4 and FMLP with an increase in both InsP formation and [Ca2+]i. FMLP caused a greater rise in InsPs than either LTD4 or LTB4, which were equivalent. LTD4, however, caused a greater increase in [Ca2+]i than LTB4 (4-fold) or FMLP. The FMLP [Ca2+]i and InsP responses were abolished by pertussis(More)
A component of erythrocyte-conditioned medium has been shown to inhibit the incorporation of tritiated thymidine into erythroblasts from fetal mouse liver, proliferating in vitro. This component, however, has no detectable effect on the growth of colonies of erythroid cells stimulated to grow in viscous culture media by the hormone erythropoietin.(More)
In this article, the authors provide an overview of the declining role of the psychiatrist in group psychotherapy. They surveyed 18 psychiatry residency training programs and found an overall decreased focus on group therapy training. The authors opine on the causes for this decline and why group therapy training is important for psychiatry residents, as(More)
The selective enzyme inhibitors genistein and Ro 31-8220 were used to assess the importance of protein tyrosine kinase (PTK) and protein kinase C (PKC), respectively, in N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (FMLP) induced generation of superoxide anion and thromboxane B(2) (TXB(2)) in guinea-pig alveolar macrophages (AM). Genistein (3-100 muM) dose(More)
I developed a stochastic dynamic programming model of adult female Semipalmated Sandpiper (Calidris pusilla) spring migration for the purpose of adaptive management of wetlands along their migratory route. Semipalmated Sandpipers are small abundant from the Caribbean and South America to arctic North American breeding grounds. The first three stopover sites(More)
