A chlorinated benzene dechlorinating anaerobic microbial consortium was obtained by selective enrichment with hexachlorobenzene (HCB) and lactate from a freshwater sediment sample that originated from an area with proven in situ HCB dechlorination. The consortium was used to determine compound selectivity and relative dechlorination rates by incubation with(More)
Thirty protein-coding loci of southern African black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) from four isolated populations were studied using starch gel electrophoresis and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Gene diversity estimates varied between 0.036 and 0.058, with the Zambezi Valley population having the largest amount of protein variation. These levels are(More)
Superhydrophobicity is dependent on both the surface energy and the texture of the surface. These factors are discussed in terms of a series of electrospun poly(methyl methacrylate)-graft-poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PMMA-g-PDMS) copolymers with different poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) content. These copolymers are synthesized via conventional free radical(More)
