Strongyloidiasis is caused by the human infective nematodes Strongyloides stercoralis, Strongyloides fuelleborni subsp. fuelleborni and Strongyloides fuelleborni subsp. kellyi. The zoonotic potential… Expand
Compliance of Aerated Wastewater Treatment Systems: A Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis
A survey was conducted of the compliance with permit requirements of effluent quality of Aerated Wastewater Treatment Systems (AWTS) located in a rural municipality in Victoria. The study was… Expand
Microsatellite DNA markers for kinship analysis and genetic mapping in red drum, Sciaenops ocellatus (Sciaenidae, Teleostei)
Thirty-eight nuclear-encoded microsatellites were isolated from the marine fish Sciaenops ocellatus (red drum). The species is of economic importance in the southeastern United States, and declines… Expand
USE OF MULTIPLE ENDPOINTS TO EVALUATE CONTAMINANT INPUT: A SOUTH AUSTRALIAN CASE STUDY.
This study assessed the impact of a lead smelter effl uent on a marine receiving system using effl uent toxicity, seston (suspended particulate matter) metal concentrations, metal uptake by bivalves,… Expand
Genetic effects on carcass‐quality traits in hybrid striped bass (Morone chrysops♀×Morone saxatilis♂)
A1 0� 10 factorial mating design was used to exam- ine the genetic eiects on various carcass-quality traits in hybrid striped bass (Morone chrysops , � Morone saxatilis <). A total of 448 oispring… Expand
RAINWATER FOR DRINKING WATER: A STUDY OF HOUSEHOLD ATTITUDES
Taking stock: a review of the known parasites of the sleepy lizard, Tiliqua rugosa (Gray, 1825), a common lizard endemic to Australia
ABSTRACT Parasitism is a very common life strategy and although it results in harm to the host, it plays a vital ecological role in host population and community dynamics. The sleepy lizard, Tiliqua… Expand
Microsatellite DNA markers for parental assignment in hybrid striped bass (Morone saxatilis × Morone chrysops).
Development of nine polymorphic microsatellites from a genomic library of hybrid striped bass (female Morone chrysops × × × male Morone saxatilus ) DNA is described. Breeding of hybrid striped bass… Expand
