Nucleotide sequence, genomic organization and evolution of a major repetitive DNA family in tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus/hornorum )
A highly repetitive DNA sequence from tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus/hornorum ) has been cloned and sequenced. It is a tandemly arrayed sequence of 237 bp and constitutes 7% of the fish genome. The copy number of the ...
Biological husbandry and the "nitrogen problem"
(Biological Agriculture and Horticulture, 1986)
Since 1978, the author has been conducting research into the theory and practice of biological husbandry in collaboration with a farmer who stopped using pesticides and mineral fertilizers in 1976. Eggs are exported from ...
Faba bean: an alternative to soybean in Nova Scotia, Canada.
(Borkhauser Verlag: Basel, Boston, Stuttgart., 1982-01-01)
For farmers in Nova Scotia who wish to be self-sufficient in animal feed, and in N fertilizer, the faba bean offers a number of advantages over soybean: (i) no special processing is required; (ii) nodulation is generally ...

Circulation time, blood reserves and extracellular space in a cephalopod
Octopus vulgaris Cuvier has a fully enclosed blood system that includes large blood sinuses behind the eyes and around the gut. It would be useful to know the mean circulation time, the minimal number of heartbeats needed ...
Invertebrate predation and lotic prey communities: Evaluation of in situ enclosure/exclosure experiments
The influence of the stonefly Kogotus nonus on prey communities was assessed by varying the predator density within small enclosures in a first-order stream in southwestern Alberta. Experimental containers with natural ...
Compartmental models of nitrogen cycling in tropical and temperate marine environments
Time-course measurements of super(15)N tracer kinetics in particulate organic and in NH super(+) sub(4) pools from tropical and temperate regions were used to test several compartmental models describing the exchange of ...
