In order to develop upland cotton plants resistant to Rotylenchulus reniformis Lind. & Oliveira reniform nematode, a three-species hybrids including Gossypium hirsutum L. (2n = 4 x = 52, (AD)1 genome) was created using G. longicalyx Hutch & Lee as donor parent (2n = 2x = 26, F1 genome) and G. thurberi Tod. (2n = 2x = 26, D1 genome) as bridge species. The morphology and the resistance to reniform nematode of the parents and of thirty plants belonging to the selfed progeny of G. hirsutum x G. longicalyx x G. thurberi (HLT) trispecific hybrid were assessed. G. longicalyx, G. hirsutum x G. longicalyx hexaploid and all the thirty plants issued from the selfing of HLT hybrid were very resistant to reniform nematode unlike G. hirsutum which was very sensitive to it. Cytogenetic studies showed that HLT hybrid and its direct progeny have 52 chromosomes as the main cotton cultivated species. HLT hybrid shows a good pollen fertility and a very high level of chromosome pairing at metaphase I. It is self fertile but presents important incompatibility barriers when crossed as female parent with G. hirsutum. The prospects to develop upland cotton commercial cultivars resistant to reniform nématodes from the available interspecific genetic stocks are discussed. [less ▲]

One hundred mapped micro-satellites markers located on the chromosomes of subgenome Ah were used to monitor the introgression of DNA fragments coming from the Australian species G. sturtianum Willis in BC1, BC2, BC2S1, BC2S2, BC2S3, BC3, BC3S1 and BC3S2 obtained from the G. hirsutum L. x G. raimondii Ulb. x G. sturtianum (HRS) trispecific hybrid. In these plants, the inhibition of the gossypol synthesis only in the seed seems to be linked to the substitution of fragments of linkage groups C2, C3, C4, C5, C6, C7 and C9 of G. hirsutum by homeologous segments of G. sturtianum chromosomes. The prospect to use these genetic stocks to develop commercial varieties is discussed according to the putative genetic determinism of the “low-gossypol seed and high-gossypol plant”-trait. [less ▲]

Several species of kingfisher occur on Lake Nokoué, southern Bénin, including Malachite (Alcedo cristata) and Pied Kingfishers (Ceryle rudis). Here, we compare their diet and estimate the degree of overlap in food niche by analysing contents of regurgitated pellets collected near nesting sites of Pied Kingfishers or inside the nest chambers of Malachite Kingfishers. Characteristic fish skull bones were identified using a reference collection of local fish skeletons. Malachite Kingfishers feed most frequently on fish that occur around floating vegetation, mainly Kribia sp. (56%), Hemichromis fasciatus (28%) and Sarotherodon melanotheron (8%). Important differences were found between different pairs, and between adults and nestlings, the latter being fed almost exclusively on Kribia sp. Larger fish are fed to nestlings than are eaten by the adults. Pied Kingfishers prey upon 14 different fish species, some of them being caught in the pelagic region of the lake, particularly clupeids taken by hovering. By comparison with Malachite Kingfishers, Pied Kingfishers feed on a wider diversity of prey, and take larger fish, so that the dietary overlap between the species is relatively low (O = 0.181).

This paper considers the rationale for the training and staff development of e-tutors. We then examine how this is implemented in practice through the presentation of case studies from three European universities. Finally we analyse the differences and similarities of these case studies to exemplify some principles for training models and guidelines for training of e-tutors. We conclude that although it is possible to identify these principles of good practice, there is great flexibility and diversity of methods and approaches in the training and staff development of e-tutors.

It is now 30 years since the first motor unit number estimation (MUNE) technique was introduced by Allan McComas as a way of providing an objective, sensitive and reproducible means of measuring the number of motor axons in living human muscle or muscle group. MUNE techniques have substantially evolved over the past decade and have been applied, with increasing frequency, to the study of age effects on motoneurone population and muscle denervating disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), spinal muscular atrophy, poliomyelitis and different types of inherited and acquired peripheral neuropathies. In the future, one of the most important topics involving MUNE, will probably be its use in monitoring the progress of ALS patients undergoing experimental drug trials. However, among incremental, multiple point stimulation, spike-triggered averaging, F-wave analysis and statistical methods, there is no consensus about the best MUNE method. There is only a general feeling that some techniques are more valid than others. For this reason, in the present review, brief descriptions of the distinct MUNE methods are presented. In the second part of the paper, advantages and limitations (alternation, sampling errors, temporal registration etc...) of the most commonly employed procedures are considered. [less ▲]

The deposition of proteins in the form of amyloid fibrils is the characteristic feature of more than 20 medical conditions affecting the central nervous system or a variety of peripheral tissues. These disorders, which include Alzheimer's disease, the prion diseases and type II diabetes, are of enormous importance in the context of present-day human health and welfare. Extensive research is therefore being carried out to define the molecular details of the mechanism of the pathological conversion of amyloidogenic proteins from their soluble forms into fibrillar structures. This review focuses on recent studies that demonstrate the power of using antibodies or antibody fragments to probe the process of fibril formation, and discusses the emerging potential of these species as diagnostic and therapeutic agents.
