An outline of higher-level classification and survey of taxonomic richness
For the kingdom Animalia, 1,552,319 species have been described in 40 phyla in a new evolutionary classification. Among these, the phylum Arthropoda alone represents 1,242,040 species, or about 80%Expand
Production and application of a novel bioflocculant by multiple-microorganism consortia using brewery wastewater as carbon source.
MMF1 was identified as a macromolecular substance containing both protein and polysaccharide that showed good flocculating performance in treating indigotin printing and dyeing wastewater, and the maximal removal efficiencies of COD and chroma were 79.2% and 86.5%, respectively. Expand
Animal biodiversity: An outline of higher-level classification and survey of taxonomic richness (Addenda 2013).
The kingdom Animalia is here estimated to have a total of 1,659,420 described species in 40 phyla, among these, the most successful phylum Arthropoda alone represents 1,302,809 species, or about 78.5% of the total. Expand
Attenuation of Simian Immunodeficiency Virus SIVmac239 Infection by Prophylactic Immunization with DNA and Recombinant Adenoviral Vaccine Vectors Expressing Gag
ABSTRACT The prophylactic efficacy of DNA and replication-incompetent adenovirus serotype 5 (Ad5) vaccine vectors expressing simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) Gag was examined in rhesus macaquesExpand

Roles of substrate availability and infection of resting and activated CD4+ T cells in transmission and acute simian immunodeficiency virus infection.
Analysis of tissues of rhesus macaques inoculated intravaginally or i.v. with SIV supports the proposed roles of target cell availability, susceptibility, and virus production by infected resting and activated CD4(+) T cells in mucosal transmission and early infection, and points to a potential role for topical anti-inflammatory agents in moderating the initial propagation of infection.

Relative Toxicity of Abamectin to the Predatory Mite Phytoseiulus persimilis (Acari: Phytoseiidae) and Twospotted Spider Mite (Acari: Tetranychidae)
Abamectin at selective sublethal concentrations (i.e., 1-4 ppm) could be of value in adjusting predator /prey ratios in integrated management of spider mites. Expand
