Incidence of resistance to benzimidazole fungicides in a field population of Venturia inaequalis /
(Brock University, 2000-05-21)
The allele-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used to screen for the presence of benomyl resistance, and to characterize their levels and frequencies in field populations of Venturia inaequalis during two ...
The influence of investigator disturbance on aggressive behaviour and breeding success of ring-billed gulls (Larus delawarensis) /
(Brock University, 1992-05-21)
Increased losses of eggs and chicks resulting from human intrusion (investigator or other) into seabird colonies has been well documented. In 1990/91, I studied the effects of investigator disturbance on aggressive ...
An investigation into the functional role of the D1:1 and D1:2 polypeptides in photosystem II in cyanobacteria : the effect of changing PSI/PSII ratio on photoinhibition in Synechococcus sp. PCC7942 /
(Brock University, 1999-05-21)
The cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. PCC 7942 (Anacystis nidulans R2) adjusts its photosynthetic function by changing one of the polypeptides of photosystem II. This polypeptide, called Dl, is found in two forms in ...
The mechanism of the regulation of energy distribution between photosystems 1 and 2 in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. strain PCC 7002 /
(Brock University, 1997-05-21)
Cyanobacteria are able to regulate the distribution of absorbed light energy between photo systems 1 and 2 in response to light conditions. The mechanism of this regulation (the state transition) was investigated in the ...
The role of cyclic nucleotides in modulation of crayfish neuromuscular junctions by a neuropeptide /
(Brock University, 1999-05-21)
DF2, a heptapeptide, is a member of the family of FMRFamide-like peptides and has been shown to increase the amount of transmitter released at neuromuscular junctions of the crayfish, Procambarus clarkit Recent evidence ...
Structural and functional investigation of the human a-tocopherol transfer protein (a-TTP) /
(Brock University, 2003-05-21)
The nesting biology of Ceratina (Hymenoptera: Apidae) in the Niagara Region : new species, nest site selection and parasitism
(Brock University, 2010-10-27)
One of the most common bee genera in the Niagara Region, the genus Ceratina (Hymenoptera: Apidae) is composed of four species, C. dupla, C. calcarata, the very rare C. strenua, and a previously unknown species ...
The investigation of edge effects within ragmented forest islands in Short Hills Provincial Park
(Brock University, 1994-10-02)
It has been well documented, within the field of landscape ecology, that terrestrial fragmentation contributes to increased heterogeneity at the landscape level. It has also been observed that elevated areas of edge ...
Responses of crayfish to a reflective environment /
(Brock University, 2007-06-04)
This thesis examines how dominance status of crayfish alters responses to their own reflection. Crayfish are social animals that fight to develop a dominance hierarchy consisting of dominant and subordinate members. After ...
Development of packaging cell lines for rescuing BAV2 viral vectors
(Brock University, 1999-07-09)
The construction of adenovirus vectors for cloning and foreign gene expression requires packaging cell lines that can complement missing viral functions caused by sequence deletions and/or replacement with foreign DNA ...
