Specific pathogen free (SPF) domestic cats were inoculated with tissue homogenate obtained from a Chinese leopard (Panthera pardus japonensis) that had died in a North American zoo from a natural infection with canine distemper virus (CDV). The cats developed a transient cell-associated CDV viraemia along with pronounced lymphopenia but did not show any(More)
Recently an epizootic, reported to be due to a morbillivirus infection, affected the lion population of the Tanzanian Serengeti National Park. A morbillivirus phosphoprotein (P) gene fragment was amplified by PCR from tissue samples of several affected lions. Sequencing of the amplificates and subsequent phylogenetic analyses revealed that a wild-type(More)
The analysis of classified hemispherical images of forest stands is a common method in forestry to determine site-related factors for plants. A segmentation of hemispheric images, followed by an intersection with the daily and annual path of the sun, provides a quantitative measure on the solar radiation conditions for young plants. For that purpose(More)
Hemispheric image processing with the goal of solar radiation determination from ground-based fisheye images is a valuable tool for silvicultural analysis in forest ecosystems. The basic idea of the technique is taking a hemispheric crown image with a camera equipped with a 180° fisheye lens, segmenting the image in order to identify solar radiation(More)
A personal computer program (COMPSEQ) has been developed which can present an informative listing of pre-aligned exonic nucleotide sequences and of their translations to amino acid sequences as well run triplet-oriented analyses on these sequences in a given reading frame. The sequence listing focuses on the differences between related sequences by(More)
