Abstract

The incidence of cases of myiasis in cattle caused by larvae of Cochliomyia hominivorax in the south-western USA suggested a failure in the sterile male method of suppression in 1972-76. Estimates of sterile mating frequencies among native females during field trials conducted in Curaçao, Florida,...

Abstract

Isoenzyme surveys were used to compare genetic variation within and among strains of the bacterium, Proteus rettgeri. One strain was a standard American Type Cell Culture strain (ATCC 9250), whereas 8 other strains were recovered from larva or pupa of Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel) originating...
