Abstract

The evolution of yellow fever virus over 67 years was investigated by comparing the nucleotide sequences of the envelope (E) protein genes of 20 viruses isolated in Africa, the Caribbean, and South America. Uniformly weighted parsimony algorithm analysis defined 2 major evolutionary yellow fever...

Abstract

Cuticular hydrocarbon composition is used to explain hypothetical phylogenies among sympatric and allopatric populations of Amblyomma cajennense, A. variegatum and Ixodes ricinus tick species. The method proposed here uses a parsimony analysis of endemicity by disjunct biochemical data (PAEDB)...

Abstract

From a survey of the scorpion faunas of North Africa, Saudi Arabia, Namibia, Baja California (Mexico), tropical South America (Argentina, Brazil, Columbia, Ecuador, Paraguay), Australia and the Caribbean, it is concluded that the principal function of the colour of scorpions is crypsis - pale or...

Abstract

THE natural type of tropical cattle is Bos indicus. For draft purposes it cannot be bettered, but with the tendency to produce more meat and milk in the Tropics, European varieties of Bos taurus are increasingly imported and attempts made to adapt the environment to their constitution. Sometimes...
