Remote Sensing of Deforestation in the Mosquita Region of Honduras

Date: 15-01-2006 00:55

This study is set between 1987 and 1994 in the vicinity of a colonization front in the Mosquitia Region of Honduras. Consisting primarily of ladino peasants, the front has advanced into an indigenously populated, relatively pristine rainforest region. Population (1950-1988) and agricultural (1961 and 1976) census data charted steady growth for towns along the edge of the fores ... read full abstract ››

Use of Simple Media For Supporting in Vitro Development of Buffalo Embryos

Date: 06-01-2006 13:40

In vitro production (IVP) of embryos, through a combination of the techniques of in vitro maturation (IVM), fertilization (IVF) and culture (IVC) of oocytes is a very important emerging reproductive technology in buffalo. However, complicated culture systems and very low blastocyst yields have limited its applicability.

The present study was, therefore, undertaken ... read full abstract ››

Southern Pine Beetle Infestation Probability Mapping Using Weights of Evidence Analysis

Date: 14-12-2005 15:47

Weights of Evidence (WofE) spatial analysis was used to predict the probability of Southern Pine Beetle (SPB) infestation in Angelina, Nacogdoches, San Augustine and Shelby Counties, Texas. Thematic spatial data derived from LandSat imagery (1974 – 2002 LandSat 1 – 7) were used in the analysis. Data layers included: forest covertype, forest age, forest patch size a ... read full abstract ››

Screening, isolation and characterization of an antibiotic producing Actinomycete, Streptomyces setonii 19NRA1

Date: 18-10-2005 18:25

Actinomycetes are one of the most attractive sources of antibiotics and other biologically active substances of high commercial value. It accounts roughly for two-thirds of the total known antibiotics isolated from these gram positive, branched spore bearing filamentous group of Eubacteria with controversial bacto-fungoid morphology. Among the Actinomycetes, Streptomyces spp. ... read full abstract ››
