Knowledge of mammalian diversity is still surprisingly disparate, both regionally and taxonomically. Here, we present a comprehensive assessment of the conservation status and distribution of the world's mammals. Data, compiled by 1700+ experts, cover all 5487 species, including marine mammals. Global macroecological patterns are very different for land and(More)
Neuroblastoma is a heterogeneous tumour and its effective clinical management is dependent on accurate prognostic evaluation. In approximately 25% of patients amplification of the MYCN oncogene is known to be associated with a poor outcome. In order to identify additional molecular markers with prognostic potential in non-MYCN-amplified neuroblastomas, we(More)
Records of snakes emerging early from hibernation are useful for establishing species' potential activity seasons. In discussing the habits of Storeria dekayi, Fitch (1999) attributed to this cold-tolerant species an activity season from "as early as mid-March and. .. as late as mid-November." On 10 February 2009 at 1400hrs CST, we collected 9 Storeria(More)
Therapy with human lymphoblastoid interferon HuIFN-alpha(N1), or recombinant human interferon gamma, rHuIFN-gamma, inhibited experimental pulmonary metastases of the human melanoma cell line, DX3-azac, in BALB/c nude mice and significantly prolonged survival. The human IFNs had no effect on nude mouse lung and spleen NK cell activity, lung macrophage(More)
