Recent experiences on various points of the biology of clitellate works (oligochaetes and leeches) are present in the complaints of the newest foreign Symposium on Aquatic Oligochaete Biology - from improvement to inhabitants dynamics and from ultrastructure to evolution. nearly all of the contributions, that have a truly wide geographic scope, are investigations of the biology and ecology of oligochaete works in usual and polluted waters.

Particle-Lung Interactions

This wide-ranging, accomplished reference provides the newest advancements in aerosol technology and interactions among debris and the respiration tract-utilizing an inter-disciplinary strategy that integrates advances in physics, chemistry, and engineering with the epidemiological and biomedical sciences, and concentrating on the dynamics of particle deposition, retention, and clearance.

The Biology and Technology of Intelligent Autonomous Agents

The NATO backed complicated research Institute 'The Biology and Tech­ nology of clever self sustaining brokers' was once a rare occasion. for 2 weeks it introduced jointly the best proponents of the hot habit­ orientated method of synthetic Intelligence in Castel Ivano close to Trento. The aim of the assembly used to be to set up a pretty good clinical and technological foun­ dation for the sector of clever self reliant brokers with a bias in the direction of the hot methodologies and methods that experience lately been built in Ar­ tificial Intelligence below the robust impression of biology.

It was once enjoyable to be invited to arrange a 3rd variation of this ebook, which first seemed in 1951. initial discussions with the publishers, notwithstanding, printed a substantial problem within the current excessive bills of printing, in order that alterations and a few advancements have been in actual fact essential to justify the enterprise.

Specimens collected in the field were fixed with 10% formalin and stored in 70% ethanol. All spec- imens were mounted whole either as semipermanent mounts in 50% glycerol/50% lactic acid or as permanent mounts in Hydramount TM or Canada balsam.

4h), all immatures with vesicle-framed coelomocytes share the band positions found characteristic for F. sp. "Z" (Fig. 4, a, c-g). Immature specimens with different coelomocytes, in turn, do not agree with mature specimens of F. sp. "Z" with regard to band patterns (Fig. 4, i-n). Only one single small specimen (Fig. 4, h) shares the band positions of F. sp. "Z", but does not show the "Z"-specific coelomocytes. , 1994; Weider, 1992). This may be due to the fact that gener- Fig. 4. Comparison of general protein patterns of Fridericia sp.

Carmona et at. (1989) found both seasonally and geographically determined variability in general protein patterns of a rotifer species. In our study, F. galba from a single population exhibits considerable variability of band patterns in the anodic area (Fig. 3), indicating a genetic diversity similar to what Christensen et at. (1992), using isozyme patterns, found for a Danish Fridericia galba field population. It was nonetheless possible to identify a group of prominent bands as species-specific for the sampling site.
