Lactobacilli have been used in the dairy and pharmaceutical industries because of their nutritious and/or
therapeutic effects. Lactobacillus acidophilus and
Lactobacillus bulqaricus were isolated from a commercially
available product and studied for their growth and colony
characteristics as described in Chapter I and Chapter II.
Survival of these lactobacilli in...
Effects of lactobacilli in enteric coated capsules
were studied in piglets (Chapter I). Lactobacillus
acidophilus and Lactobacillus bulgaricus isolated from a
commercial product were formulated in capsules, enteric
coated, and then given to both Escherichia coli-challenged
and unchallenged baby pigs. Decreased
incidence and severity of diarrhea, and decreased weight
1S801 is a transposable element isolated from Pseudomonas syringae pathovar
(pv.) phaseolicola, the causal agent of halo blight of bean. Fragments of the element are
present in multiple copies on an indigenous plasmid, pMMC7105, of strain LR781, and
have been implicated as sites of homologous recombination leading to imprecise
The wind and thermodynamic fields associated with eastern
Atlantic cloud clusters are studied using radiosonde data from
the Global Atmospheric Research Program Atlantic Tropical Experiment
(GATE). These data are from the gridded set of winds prepared
by Dr. Katsuyuki Ooyama (AOML-NOAA) and Dr. Jan-Hwa Chu
(SSEC, University of Wisconsin, Madison)...
There has been a growing interest in eating disorders among Singaporean medical
professionals since the 1990s, and the Singaporean public is also starting to become aware of the
risks of these conditions. This ethnographic research on eating disorders in Singapore, conducted
in 2001, however, found that the majority of the...
The hemlock woolly adelgid, Adelges tsugae, is causing widespread mortality of eastern hemlock, Tsuga canadensis, in the eastern United States. In the West, A. tsugae causes negligible damage to western hemlock, Tsuga heterophylla. Host tolerance traits and presence of endemic predators may be contributing to the relative tolerance of western...
Individuals in and around a small college town were asked to take part in an interview to study their perception of wilderness activities depicted on television and other forms of media and the potential impact of these depictions on an individual's willingness to participate in wilderness activities. This study linked...
Successful conservation management requires an understanding of how species respond to intervention. Native and exotic species may respond differently to management interventions due to differences arising directly from their native or exotic origin (i.e., provenance) or from differences in life-history or phylogenetic lineage that are associated with provenance. Thus, selection...
