Abstract

Background: More than 70 arboviruses have been identified in Australia and the transmission cycles of most are poorly understood. While there is an extensive list of arthropods from which these viruses have been recovered, far less is known about the non-human hosts that may be involved in the...

Abstract

Leaching of perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) from a local point source, a fire-fighting training area, has led to extensive contamination of a groundwater aquifer which has spread underneath part of a nearby town, Oakey, situated in the State of Queensland, Australia. Groundwater is extracted by...

Abstract

The invasion of exotic pasture species into intact woodlands has the potential to affect native fauna by altering habitat structure and ecosystem function. The spread of these weeds is generally in concert with cattle grazing, so that fauna or habitat change is due to multiple interrelated causes....

Abstract

In Australia, the surface and subsurface soils of the majority of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)-growing regions are sodic. Application of organic amendments can be an option to stabilize the structure of sodic Vertisols due to their potential positive effect on soil physical properties. An...

Abstract

Two experiments (conducted in Queensland, Australia), compared broods of Ardeola ibis [Bubulcus ibis] that were naturally tick-infested (by Argas robertsi) with an equal number that were rendered tick-free by application of an acaricide (the pyrethroid, flumethrin) to their nests and of barriers...

Abstract

Three carbon dioxide baited silhouette traps of different shape and an animal-baited trap were used to evaluate trap- and host-finding behaviour of A. bancrofti at 2 locations in Queensland and New South Wales. Highly significant effects influencing silhouette-trap-finding were incorporated into...

Abstract

In a 3-year study of Ardeola ibis [Bubulcus ibis] at a heronry of 3500 nests in south-east Queensland, 34% of the eggs in 711 observed nests failed to survive to become fledglings (11-day-old chicks). Fledgling mortality appeared to be much lower. The main sources of mortality were predation of...

Abstract

Larvae of Lophyrotoma interrupta were collected on silver-leaved ironbark trees (Eucalyptus melanophloia) in 1981 and 1982 in an area of southern Queensland where they were causing poisoning of cattle. Larvae were reared to adults in the laboratory to confirm their identity. The median lethal doses ...
