, : Egg parasitoids of the maize borer, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae). Centro Agricola 14(4): 88-89

From field collections in Cuba of eggs of Spodoptera frugiperda on maize in 1984-85, the scelionid Telenomus sp. was shown to be the most abundant parasitoid, causing 46.9% parasitism.

Here we examine whistle production by free-ranging adult bottlenose dolphins. Whistles were recorded from each of 13 dolphi...

Fibrin adhesives have been advocated as a protective seal in colonic anastomosis to prevent leakage. In order to assess the effect of fibrin glue sealing we compared the healing of sutured colonic anastomosis in the rat (group 1) with the addition...

For community-dwelling older persons with dementia, the presence of multimorbidity can create complex clinical challenges for both individuals and their physicians, and can contribute to poor outcomes. We quantified the associations between level...

We pr...
