Interspecific predation and cannibalism and associated rates of oviposition were
assessed for adult female Metaseiulus occidentalis (Nesbitt) and Typhlodromus pyri
Scheuten when provided non-limiting amounts of either eggs, larvae, protonymphs, or
deutonymphs. Tests with all four stages of phytoseiids and larvae of Tetranychus urticae
Koch were carried out at 25°C....
Phytochemical profiles and antioxidant activity of four historical
grape accessions (‘Kuzu Kuyrugu’, ‘Miskali’, ‘Erkek Miskali’, and
‘Kirmizi Kismis’) grown in Igdir province located in Eastern Anatolia
Region of Turkey were examined. The amount of vitamin C,
organic acids (citric acid, tartaric acid, malic acid, succinic acid and
fumaric acid), sugars...
A number of groups in the United States have expressed concern regarding the state of public ocean literacy and the capabilities of the future marine STEM workforce. This pilot study explores some of the requirements for workforce development and the expansion of ocean literacy by introduction of fundamental ocean properties...
The herbicide, Dacthal (dimethyl 2,3,5,6,-tetrachloroterephthalate) is
hydrolyzed to give the corresponding diacid and this derivative is a common
contaminant in ground water. In the Ontario region of eastern Oregon the
use of this herbicide on onions has resulted in the contamination of an
aquifer with this derivative. Since movement to...
2 -acetylaminofluorene -induced hepatocarcinogenesis in rats
proceeds in stages of initiation and promotion, similar to experimental
systems, in mouse skin. In this study promoters of liver
tumorigenesis, phenobarbital, DDT and butylated hydroxytoluene
(BHT), were compared to non-promoters, amobarbital, diphenylhydantoin
(DPH) and benz(a)anthracene (BA), for their ability to
cause liver growth...
