Many lizard species use caudal autotomy to escape entrapment. Conspicuous coloration may increase the likelihood of being attacked, but if that attack can be directed towards the autotomous tail this may ultimately increase the chances of the lizard surviving a predatory attack. We tested the hypothesis that brightly-colored function to divert predatory(More)
We report the results of our continued review of 11 total hip arthroplasties using 22.225 mm alumina ceramic femoral heads on a Charnley flanged stem, articulating with chemically cross-linked polyethylene. There was an initial bedding-in of up to 0.41 mm at the articular surface in the first two years. This had not progressed further, at a minimum(More)
Of the 11 054 Charnley low-frictional torque arthroplasties carried out at our hospital between 1962 and 1977, 110 (94 patients) had a minimum follow-up of 30 years with a mean of 32.3 years (30.0 to 40.5). The mean age of the patients at operation was 43.3 years (17.0 to 65.0) and 75.7 years (51.0 to 97.0) at follow-up. Overall, 90% of hips (99) were free(More)
OBJECTIVES Metal-on-metal (MoM) hip resurfacing was introduced into clinical practice because it was perceived to be a better alternative to conventional total hip replacement for young and active patients. However, an increasing number of reports of complications have arisen focusing on design and orientation of the components, the generation of metallic(More)
We reviewed 1039 revision total hip replacements where an angle-bore acetabular component was used. After a mean follow-up of nine years (0 to 20.6), the incidence of revision for dislocation was 2.1% (22 revisions), a success rate of 97.9%. In 974 revisions, where the indication was other than dislocation, the success rate was 98.5%. Of the 65 revisions(More)
Health and conservation research on platypuses (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) may require anaesthesia to reduce stress and the risk of injury to both the animal and the researcher, as well as to facilitate examination and sample collection. Platypus anaesthesia can be difficult to manage, with reports of periods of apnoea and bradycardia described. This study(More)

a r t i c l e i n f o Having international social ties carries many potential advantages, including access to novel ideas and greater commercial opportunities. Yet little is known about who forms more international friendships. Here, we propose social class plays a key role in determining people's internationalism. We conducted two studies to test whether(More)
