Field pea (Pisum sativum L.) is a grain legume crop that is cultivated for either human or livestock consumption. Development of varieties adapted to damaging abiotic and biotic stresses is a major objective for field pea breeding. Bacterial blight is a serious disease caused by the pathogenic agents Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae and Pseudomonas(More)
Field pea (Pisum sativum L.) is a cool-season grain legume that is cultivated world-wide for both human consumption and stock-feed purposes. Enhancement of genetic and genomic resources for field pea will permit improved understanding of the control of traits relevant to crop productivity and quality. Advances in second-generation sequencing and associated(More)
Field pea (Pisum sativum L.) is an important grain legume consumed both as human food and animal feed. However, productivity in low rainfall regions can be significantly reduced by inferior soils containing high levels of boron and/or salinity. Furthermore, powdery mildew (PM) (Erysiphe pisi) disease also causes significant yield loss in warmer regions.(More)
When supply and demand are recursive, with uncorrelated cross-equation errors, least squares estimation has no simultaneous equation bias. Supply to a daily fish market is determined by the previous night's catch, so this would appear to be a good example of a recursive market. Despite this, data from the Fulton fish market are treated in the literature,(More)
BACKGROUND Acute descending thoracic aortic dissection is a life-threatening emergency. It is not often considered as the initial diagnosis in patients presenting with epigastric pain and could easily be missed in a busy casualty department. AIM This case report is aimed to highlight the feasibility of the technique and the need for long-term surveillance(More)
A case of bronchial occlusion caused by a thoracic aortic aneurysm and the relief of this obstruction by the implantation of expandable metallic stents is described. Stent deployment provided an immediate improvement in lung ventilation and chest radiograph appearances. Stent insertion was uncomplicated, but weaning from mechanical ventilation was(More)
