Genome-wide SNP discovery and QTL mapping for fruit quality traits in inbred backcross lines (IBLs) of solanum pimpinellifolium using genotyping by sequencing
TLDR
The present work introduced a set of SNPs at sufficiently high density for QTL mapping in populations derived from S. pimpinellifolium (LA1589) as the recurrent and donor parents, thus confirming the high breeding potential of this wild species. Expand
Making a Virus Visible: Francis O. Holmes and a Biological Assay for Tobacco mosaic virus
  • K. Scholthof
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of the history of biology
  • 2014
TLDR
In the early twentieth century, viruses had yet to be defined in a material way and Holmes’ method provided the first evidence that viruses were discrete infectious particles, thus setting the stage for physicochemical studies of plant viruses. Expand
Ecology and Agricultural Applications of Nitrogen-Fixing Systems: Overview
Global agricultural consumption of synthetic nitrogen fertilizer increased 27-fold between 1950 and 1990 to approximately 80 million metric tons per year, about 50% of the total amount of nitrogenExpand
The Effect of Fluorine-Containing Emissions on Conifers
This text is devoted to the pathology of conifers affected by fluorine - regarded as the most aggressive pollutant in air emissions worldwide. A wealth of information has been accumulated about theExpand
The first photosynthetic N2-fixing Rhizobium: characteristics.
Biological N2 fixation requires large amounts of energy based on either in vitro biochemical studies of nitrogenase or in vivo studies of root nodulated legume plants. For example, calorimetricExpand
ROLE DES INDIVIDUS CONDITIONNES DANS L'INITIATION A L'AUTO-NOURRISSAGE ET DANS .L'ADAPTATION A LA CAPTIVITE DU LOUP, DICENTRARCHUS LABRAX, 0' SAUVAGE, EN PERIODE HIVERNALE
Abstract It is shown that the presence of pre-conditioned fish in a wild naive group reared under limiting ecological conditions (winter) facilitates the adaptation of the group to captivity byExpand
The Hudson River Ecosystem
The Hudson River springs from Lake Tear of the Clouds in the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York State. From its source, the river flows in a southerly direction for about 315 river miles (RM)Expand
Hypotheses on mechanisms underlying observational learning in animals
  • B. Pallaud
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Behavioural Processes
  • 1984
TLDR
The fact that animals prove to have such a capacity to benefit from a conspecific's experience is a factor to be kept in mind in all studies in the eco-ethological field (particularly those concerning the predator-prey relation). Expand
Accelerated parathion degradation in soil by inoculation with parathion-utilizing bacteria
  • C. Daughton, D. Hsieh
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Bulletin of environmental contamination and toxicology
  • 1977
TLDR
Only in the past decade have investigators shown that soil undesirably contaminated with a pesticide could possibly be decontaminated by inoculation with specifically adapted microorganisms. Expand
Recent advances in PCB analysis.

  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Residue reviews
  • 1977
TLDR
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are produced in a number of countries, including France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Russia, and the United States; the largest producer of PCBs in the world is the Monsanto Chemical Company, St. Louis, Missouri. Expand
