The New World screwworm fly, Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) (Diptera: Calliphoridae), became established in the Old World for the first time during 1988, in the Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. An obligate parasite of mammals in its larval stages, causing wound myiasis, it is one of the most serious insect pests of livestock in the Americas.(More)
A laboratory catchment provides experimental control over hydrological variables which is notably absent in the monitoring of experimental and representative basins. In designing an apparatus for laboratory catchment studies, particular attention must be paid to the methods of simulating rainfall over, and of measuring discharge from, the artificial(More)
A means of contaminating tsetse flies in the field with fluorescent pigment powders has been developed, using pigment in open-ended plastic chambers at the cage position on traps. Glossina pallidipes Austen and G.morsitans morsitans Westwood passed rapidly through the chambers, and on exit were contaminated with consistent doses of powder: about 90(More)
During the screwworm eradication programme in Libya in 1991, trapped specimens of Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) were found infested with phoretic mites, Macrocheles muscaedomesticae (Scopoli), or parasitic mites, Trichotromidium muscarum (Riley). The possible sources of infestation and potential effects of mites on screwworm flies are discussed.
In one of the first stand-alone studies covering the whole of the Indonesian banking industry, and utilising a unique dataset provided by the Indonesian central bank, this paper analyses the levels of intermediation-based efficiency obtaining during the period 2003-2007. Using a new approach (i.e., semi-oriented radial measure Data Envelopment Analysis, or(More)
Flood quantile estimation for ungauged catchment areas continues to be a routine problem faced by the practising Engineering Hydrologist, yet the hydrometric networks in many countries are reducing rather than expanding. The result is an increasing reliance on methods for regionalising hydrological variables. Among the most widely applied techniques is the(More)
