Options for vector control against trypanosomiasis in Africa
Tsetse control has long been an important option for reducing the impact of African trypanosomiasis but, although many effective methods have been used, the results have seldom proved sustainable.Expand
Wing fray in Glossina morsitans centralis Machado (Diptera: Glossinidae)
It is suggested that wing fray may impose a physiological limitation on the lifespan of tsetse flies and may consequently be a factor in population regulation. Expand
The population was under no pressure from non-human predators but nutritional requirements were restricted during the prolonged dry periods and poaching was heavy. Expand
Social biology of bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus Pallas 1776) in the Nairobi National Park, Kenya
Summary A study to investigate some aspects of the social biology of bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus Pallas 1776) was carried out in a 2.59 km2 study area in the Nairobi National Park, Kenya.Expand
The influence of game animals on the distribution and feeding habits of glossina pallidipes in the Lambwe Valley.
Bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus) was found to be the preferred host of G. pallidipes and there was a positive correlation between the distribution of these two species. Expand

It is argued that those tasked with managing trypanosomiasis or committed to poverty alleviation in Africa should consider large-scale, area-wide tsetse control involving all proven methods, including aerial spraying and the sterile insect technique. Expand
Tsetse control in Botswana - a reversal in strategy
The recent return to aerial spraying as a highly effective way to control a serious insect pest in Africa is reported on. Expand
Equid herpesviruses 1 and 4 encode functional homologs of the herpes simplex virus type 1 virion transactivator protein, VP16.
Comparisons with VP16 and the homologous proteins of equine herpesvirus 1 (EHV-1) and varicella-zoster virus (VZV) showed that a region in the N-terminal domain involved in formation of a complex with cellular proteins is partially conserved in all four proteins. Expand
