The objective of this study was to evaluate the presence
of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and
coagulase-negative Staphylococcus spp. in bulk tank
milk samples from 288 organic and conventional dairy
farms located in New York, Wisconsin, and Oregon
from March 2009 to May 2011. Due to recent publications
reporting the presence...
Hybrids with abnormal development were obtained when particular
genotypes of Phaseolus vulgaris L. were crossed. The phenotypic
aberrations of the F₁s included retarded growth, chlorosis of the
trifoliate leaves and the formation of adventitious roots on the
hypocotyls. The expression of the abnormalities was dependent on the
temperature. At high...

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to identify associations between the concentration of Mycobacterium
avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) antibodies in bulk milk and potential risk factors in herd management and herd

The detection and determination of clusters has been of special interest among re-
searchers from different fields for a long time. In particular, assessing whether the clusters
are significant is a question that has been asked by a number of experimenters. In Fuentes
and Casella (2009), the authors put forth...
Once hunted to the brink of extinction, humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) in the North Atlantic have recently been increasing in numbers. However, uncertain information on past abundance makes it difficult to assess the extent of the recovery in this species. While estimates of pre-exploitation abundance based upon catch data suggest...
