Observations on the morphology and classification of weevils (Coleoptera, Curculionoidea) with a key to major groups
A brief account of the present state of weevil taxonomy is followed by a detailed study of certain structures used in their classification, namely the venter, abdominal tergites, sternite 8 of the
Phenolic acid content and composition in leaves and roots of common commercial sweetpotato (Ipomea batatas L.) cultivars in the United States.
Sweetpotato leaves had the highest phenolic acid content followed by the peel, whole root, and flesh tissues, however, there was no significant difference in the total phenolic content and antioxidant activity between purees made from the whole and peeled sweet potatoes.
Characterization of anthocyanins and anthocyanidins in purple-fleshed sweetpotatoes by HPLC-DAD/ESI-MS/MS.
Cyanidin and peonidin, which contribute to the blue and red hues of PFSP, can be simply quantified by HPLC after acid hydrolysis of the anthocyanin pigments.
The species of Phaenomerus Schönherr (Coleoptera : Curculionidae : Zygopinae) of the Australian region
The ecological relations existing between some Phaenomerus species and species of Cyphagogus, including saprophagy by the former and predation by the latter on ambrosia beetles (Curculionoidea : Platypodidae), are described.
A taxonomic study of Phalacrus uniformis (Coleoptera: Phalacridae), an Australian beetle now established in New Zealand
The beetle family Phalacridae is recorded from New Zealand for the first time and the occurrence ofPhalacrus corruscus (Panzer) (Europe) in Australia is questioned.

Therapeutic antipneumococcic rabbit serum exhibited less antagonism of pneumococcus hyaluronidase than did a majority of the sera from fifty normal human beings, and high therapeutic concentrations of penicillin and sodium sulfadiazine exhibited no antagonism.
