The Bacteriology Of The Biliary Tract: A Preliminary Report., J. A. Sapala, J. L. Ponka, T. R. Neblett Jun 1975

The Bacteriology Of The Biliary Tract: A Preliminary Report., J. A. Sapala, J. L. Ponka, T. R. Neblett

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

The bacterial flora of acute biliary tract disease has not been completely elucidated. The organisms identified most often were coliforms. Anaerobic culture technics were not precise enough to provide proper identification. In a 12-month study of 250 patients operated upon for inflammatory gallbladder disease, culture specimens were collected in a most strict and rigorous fashion. It was hoped that a more exact understanding of the relationship between bacteria and inflammatory biliary tract disease might be appreciated. Important technics were developed for gathering specimens, delivery to the laboratory and culturing. More meaningful results are to be expected In the future.

The pig was a forest-dwelling animal from the beginning of its history. In some parts of the world it has been domesticated for at least 7000 years. The European breeds of domestic swine were derived from the local wild pig, Sus scrofa. Herds ranged in pastures and forests and kept indoors only for fattening. The breeds in the Far East were derived from another wild pig, Sus vittatus, a smaller animal with shorter legs and a higher reproductive ability (Mohr 1960; Zeuner 1963). The two types interbred readily. The modem breeds of pig evolved from different crossings between the two …

Summary Of 1975 Field Experiments With Advisers: "Rape Blackleg Disease Fungicide Trials", M J. Barbetti

Experimental Summaries - Plant Research

During 1973 and 1974 a large range of fungicide spray and seed treatment schedules were tested. The 1973 results were, on the whole, not very encouraging, but the very early post-germination spray, two weeks after germination, did indicate a possible means of control. In view of the 1973 results, in the 1974 trials fungicidal sprays were applied early, and a new method of application of fungicide to the seed, known as "prilling" was used. Using fungicide seed prills and seedless fungicide prills the idea was to have the fungicide mixed with materials which dispersed upon wetting, so releasing and making …

A Photomicrographic Guide To The Saprolegniaceae Of Illinois, Ronald L. Butler Jan 1975

A Photomicrographic Guide To The Saprolegniaceae Of Illinois, Ronald L. Butler

Masters Theses

There is a paucity of information concerning the occurrence and distribution of the Saprolegniaceae of Illinois. These fungi, commonly called "water molds", are of particular interest as many are potential parasites of fish, crustaceans, and other aquatic plant and animal life. It is of considerable interest to students of the fungi and of practical value to the fisheries biologists and environmentalists to have available a means of identification for these organisms.

This paper provides a descriptive and photomicrographic account of the Saprolegniaceae of Illinois. Included herein are dichotomous keys to the genera of this family as well as generic descriptions …
