We investigated the volatile emissions of Manchurian ash seedlings, Fraxinus mandshurica, in response to feeding by the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis, and to exogenous application of methyl jasmonate (MeJA). Feeding damage by adult A. planipennis and MeJA treatment increased volatile emissions compared to unexposed controls. Although the same(More)
Green leaf volatiles (GLVs) function as host attractants, pheromone synergists, or sexual kairomones for a number of coleopteran folivores. Hence, we focused on host GLVs to determine if they were attractive to adults of the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), which feeds on ash (Fraxinus) foliage. Eight GLVs were identified by(More)
This paper describes a project in which an attempt is made to provide regular, ongoing support and counselling for families of children with severe developmental delays and intellectual or physical impairments. This service is available to both English speaking and Bangladeshi families, and is concerned with the needs of the whole family, not just the(More)
Cameron (1964) showed that the immunizing property of Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis cells was closely associated with the toxicity of cell endoplasm and the ability of formalin-killed cells to produce sterile abscesses. He also found that the presence of toxic factors in the cells depended on the culture medium to a large extent. Furthermore Cameron &(More)
