The supply of planktonic larvae to adult populations is an important contributor to the spatial and temporal variability of benthic marine organisms. The ability to predict spatial patterns of larvae and recruits from the physical and biological processes that facilitate dispersal is required in ord...

The Congo Basin region of Central Africa contains the second largest contiguous tropical rainforest in the world, which is an important source of livelihood for millions of people. It is also important for climate change adaptation, as well as mitigation policies on Reducing Emissions from Deforesta...

Tropical forests have a central role to play in a new mechanism designed to mitigate climate change, known as REDD+ (Reduced Emissions From Deforestation and Forest Degradation). Through semistructured interviews and content analysis of relevant documents, the perceptions of the opportunities and ch...

In Cameroon, resources such as non-wood forest products are often managed as common pool resources in customary systems, which have been variously influenced by changes in policy, demographics and market opportunities. This research explored the effects of increasing commercialisation on the customa...

Climate change presents additional challenges to a diverse country like Cameroon that shares the Congo Basin rainforest. Not only is the population vulnerable to the direct effects of climate change, forest-dependent communities are also vulnerable to changing environmental policy that may affect ...

Research examined how partnerships of state and civil society could function to manage commercially valuable non-wood forest products in Community Forests in Cameroon. Results indicate an effective governance arrangement should include the Ministry of Environment and Forests and the Community Fo...

While decentralization is a prominent theme in contemporary natural resource policy and management discourse, questions have been raised concerning the sustainability of participatory approaches. Drawing on theoretical and empirical research on common pool resource management and participation, we d...

The freshwater sports fishery of Prince Edward Island (PEI) revolves largely around three salmonid species—Salvelinus fontinalis (Brook Trout), Salmo salar (Atlantic Salmon), and the nonnative Oncorhynchus mykiss (Rainbow Trout). However, little is known about their current distribution and relati...

Deficits in attention have long been identified as a core feature in schizophrenia and related neuropsychiatric disorders. We have investigated the combined effects of neonatal treatment with domoic acid (DOM) and social isolation rearing (both putative animal models of schizophrenia) on latent inhi...

This paper (only an abstract of which is given) was presented at the Sixteenth Annual Meeting of the Society of Nematologists held at East Lansing, Michigan, from 16 to 19 August 1977. An account is given of studies carried out in Canada on the effect of parasitism by the mermithid nematode Neomesom...

Altered functioning of the glutamate system during critical periods of development is believed to play a role in various neurodevelopmental disorders, such as schizophrenia. Prepulse inhibition (PPI) of the acoustic startle response is deficient in people with schizophrenia. This study investigated ...

This study presents a survey of the species of the Araceae where extracellular production of calcium oxalate crystals has been observed and discusses the patterns of production of the crystals in different genera. For all Araceae studied using SEM, the oxalate crystals exuding on the epidermal surfa...

Analogues of adenosine were injected intrathecally into rats implanted with chronic indwelling cannulae in order to determine a rank order of potency and hence characterize adenosine receptors involved in spinal antinociception. In the tail flick test L-N6-phenylisopropyl adenosine (L-PIA), cyclohex...

A phylogeny has been inferred from parsimony and likelihood analyses of plastid rbcL DNA sequences for seven recognized and six undescribed species of Gracilariopsis (Gp.) (Gracilariales, Rhodophyta). New descriptions and illustrations of cystocarp morphology are provided for four Gracilariopsis spe...

Analyzes predictions made by previous allometric analyses of the relationship between population density and body mass. Ecological density of terrestrial mammal populations; Effect of trophic groups and body sizes of community members and the range of sizes; Energy use of herbivores, carnivores, and...

R. culicivorax juveniles were dissected out of Aedes aegypti larvae 7 days after infection and incubated under controlled conditions in isotonic saline containing a 14C-labelled fatty acid (palmitic acid), monoacylglycerol (glycerol monoolein), or triacylglycerol (glycerol tripalmitate) nutrient sou...

The responses of shortfin eel (Anguilla australis) to discharges from two pulp and paper mills, municipal wastewater, and a geothermal power plant wastewater were examined. Eels were caged at 3 sites along the Tarawera River, North Island, New Zealand, to explore effects of a 3-wk exposure down a co...

Little is known about the small mammalian fauna of Prince Edward Island (Canada), particularly shrews. Although historical data indicate the presence of five shrew species on Prince Edward Island (Sorex cinereus, S. fumeus, S. hoyi, S. palustris and Blarina brevicauda), recent studies have failed to...

Ribonucleotide reductase is a highly regulated activity responsible for reducing ribonucleotides to deoxyribonucleotides, which are required for DNA synthesis and DNA repair. We have tested the hypothesis that malignant cell populations contain alterations in signal pathways important in controlling...

The presence of unidentified estrogens and androgens in effluents from pulp and paper mills is well documented. However, their role in effluent effects on fish reproduction remains unclear. The objective of this study was to investigate the hypothesis that reproductive impacts of a modern pulp mill ...
