Topics from this paper

Maritime environment health risks related to pathogenic microorganisms in seawater.
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to describe the biological agents and pathologies mentioned in the literature, which show that seawater is the ecological niche of many microorganisms. Expand
Yeasts in marine and estuarine environments
Yeasts and other fungi are prevalent in marine and estuarine ecosystems where they play an important role in the food web. Marine yeasts are unique in performing fermentations under high saltExpand
A survey of tide-washed coastal areas of southern California for fungi potentially pathogenic to man
TLDR
The soil, particularly, has been recognized as a reservoir of those fungi responsible for most of the mycotic infections of man, and the presence of pathogenic fungi in a variety of terrestrial environments is revealed. Expand
Removal of Microbial Pollutants from Waste Effluents by the Redbeard Sponge
TLDR
It was shown that the more bacteria present, the more efficiently the sponge utilizes them, and this suggests that the redbeard sponge can be used to combat microbial pollution in estuaries coming from faecal contamination. Expand
General assessment of the occurrence of keratinolytic fungi in river and marine beach sediments of Catalonian waters (Spain)
Sediments from 8 river mouths of the Catalonian coast (Spain) were examined for keratinolytic fungi. Out of 1250 river and marine samples examined, 499 (39.9%) were positive for theseExpand
A preliminary study of the occurrence of actidione-resistant fungi in sediments of Catalonian river mouths (Spain). I. Keratinolytic fungi and related Onygenales
TLDR
Sediments from eight river mouths along the Catalonian coast (Spain) were surveyed for keratinolytic fungi and related Onygenales and abundance of N. marginospora was clearly correlated with the degree of water pollution with sewage. Expand
Factors Influencing Growth and Morphology of Candida Albicans in a Marine Environment
TLDR
An experiment is designed to shed some light on the influencing factors in the growth of C. albicans under marine conditions. Expand
In vitro survival of human pathogenic fungi in seawater.
TLDR
Survival for 52 weeks even when salinity and temperature levels exceed those of the natural habitat indicates that seawater which washes sand beaches can be an environmental niche for potentially pathogenic fungi. Expand
The antifungal activity of physiologic saline in serum.
Physiologic saline (0.85% sodium chloride) is widely used for the suspension of microorganisms and for the dilution of sera in numerous microbiological and serological procedures. It is usuallyExpand
Occurrence of human-associated yeasts in bivalve shellfish from Long Island Sound
TLDR
This study represents a clear demonstration of potentially pathogenic yeasts in a valuable marine resource and reflects the overall pollution status of the estuary from which they were taken. Expand

Some Biological Observations on Fungi in Estuarine Sediments
Although fungi in marine and brackish water habitats have been studied periodically, at least, since the middle of the last century, it is only within the past decade that serious attention has beenExpand
EFFECT OF SALTS ON CERTAIN PATHOGENIC FUNGI
TLDR
The inhibiting effect of the anions of the Hofmeister series 1 on pathogenic fungi is studied, with less attention to anions than to cations. Expand
EFFECTS OF CULTURAL VARIATION ON CELL SIZE IN A MARINE FUNGUS
TLDR
When a marine isolant of Phoma herbarum West was grown in a variety of temperatures and on media containing various amounts of salts in the proportions of sea water, the size of the cells was not greatly changed unless a temperature high enough to be inhibitory was applied in conjunction with a relatively low salinity.

EXPERIMENTS ON THE ADAPTATION OF ESCHERICHIA COLI TO SODIUM CHLORIDE

TLDR
The entire adaptive response of the bacteria to a considerable increase in the salinity of the environment could thus be separated into two components: an acclimatization, independent of reproduction, and a selection of those cells with the widest range of potentialities. Expand
A SIMPLE AND ACCURATE METHOD FOR THE DETERMINATION OF CHLORIDE IN BIOLOGICAL FLUIDS
TLDR
It has been concluded that the mercurimetric determination of chloride offers an especially favorable method for a rapid, simple, and accurate determination. Expand

The book is intended to provide a good deal of factual information, but above all it should be an aid to the beginner and specialist alike in the coordination of the various fields of oceanography. Expand

TLDR
Patients suffering from therapy-resistant Trichophyton rubrum infections of the palms, soles, toenails, and fingernails observed within the last three years at the University of Chicago Clinics showed the well-known disintegration of the plates starting at the distal end but eventually involving the whole plate.
