Examining the early life history of the coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) from a study of otolith microstructure
Birth date can be an important correlate to evolutionary fitness because birth timing can profoundly influence growth and survival. As part of an ongoing study, we report here on birth date and growth patterns for two ...
Differences in Otolith Morphology between Oncorhynchus mykiss and Lepomis macrochirus.
Rainbow trout (Oncorrhynus mykiss) are fish that typically live in cold, well oxygenated lakes and streams, whereas bluegills (Lepomis machrochius) are generalists that live in a wide range of water conditions. The differences ...
Molecular identification of Cryptosporidium species infecting Wisconsin dairy calves.
This research analyzed 25 Cryptosporidium positive fecal samples obtained from Eau Claire-area dairy calves to determine whether calves are potential reservoir hosts for human cryptosporidiosis in Wisconsin.
Infection Patterns of Cryptosporidium spp. in Dairy Calves of Western Wisconsin
Cryptosporidium is a genus of protozoan parasites that live on the surface of epithelial cells in the digestive tract. They infect a wide range of vertebrates, including humans. Bovine cryptosporidiosis, primarily caused ...
Examining the early life history of Coho Salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) from a study of otolith microstructure.
This study examines the birth date and growth patterns for two populations of coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) exposed to different stream environments, one from Washington and the other from Wisconsin.
Transmission Electron Microscopy Specimen Preparation and Viewing Techniques.
Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is a useful tool for observing extremely small objects with a high resolution. In biology, TEM is used to observe cellular structures such as membranes and organelles. The purpose ...
