Fos Protein Expression and Cocaine-Seeking Behavior in Rats after Exposure to a Cocaine Self-Administration Environment
To examine neuronal activation associated with incentive motivation for cocaine, cocaine-seeking behavior (operant responding without cocaine reinforcement) and Fos expression were examined in ratsExpand

Diversity of phytoplasmas in northern Australian sugarcane and other grasses
Plant pathogenic phytoplasmas found in grasses in northern Australia have the potential to adversely affect sugarcane production. To begin assessment of this threat, the number of grass species withExpand

Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus: Rapidly Increasing Global Distribution, Etiology, Epidemiology, and Management.
Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) was first described in 1935 infecting cucumber, making it one of the first plant viruses to be studied. Its initial distribution occurred out of England toExpand

Detection, identification and significance of phytoplasmas in grasses in northern Australia
Sugarcane yields have been severely reduced by white leaf and grassy shoot phytoplasma diseases in many parts of Asia. Australian sugarcane crops are not known to be affected by these diseases, butExpand

Investigation of the diversity of effector genes in the banana pathogen, Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense, reveals evidence of horizontal gene transfer.
It is hypothesized that the virulence of phytopathogenic fungi is mediated through the secretion of small effector proteins that interfere with the defence responses of the host plant. In FusariumExpand

First report of cucumber green mottle mosaic virus in Australia
Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus is reported for the first time from Australia. It was detected in watermelons (Citrullus lanatus) affected by a severe mosaic and stunted foliar development nearExpand

Presence of putative pathogenicity genes in isolates of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense from Australia
Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (Foc), causal agent of Fusarium wilt of banana, is among the most destructive pathogens of banana and plantain. Understanding pathogenicity in Foc is of keyExpand

Colletotrichum species in Australia
Forty-four species of Colletotrichum are confirmed as present in Australia based on DNA sequencing analyses. Many of these species were identified directly as a result of two workshops organised byExpand

Phytoplasma disease surveys in the extreme north of Queensland, Australia, and the island of New Guinea
A series of surveys for phytoplasmas was conducted in parts of north Queensland, Australia, Papua New Guinea (PNG) and Papua (formerly Irian Jaya), Indonesia. Sixty-one phytoplasma infections wereExpand
