Abstract  Following trauma with rice stalk to the left eye, corneal ulcer with abscess and hypopyon developed in an immunocompetent male. Direct examination of the corneal scrapings revealed septate, branched fungal hyphae. Bipolaris hawaiiensis was isolated after culture on blood agar and Sabouraud dextrose agar. Because of delay in diagnosis and appropriate treatment, the patient developed endophthalmitis needing evisceration.

    From June 2000 to June 2002, four sites on the mainstem of the Xiangxi River and one site on each of its major tributaries were sampled 16 times each for benthic algae. All total, 223 taxa (most to species and variety levels) were found (193 Bacillariophyta, 20 Chlorophyta, nine Cyanophyta and...

    Tidal and seasonal behaviour of the redox-sensitive trace metals Mn, Fe, Mo, U, and V have been investigated in the open-water column and shallow pore waters of the backbarrier tidal flats of the island of Spiekeroog (Southern North Sea) in 2002 and 2007. The purpose was to study the response of...

    Measures of alpha diversity are more frequently used to detect environmental changes and subsequent impacts on biodiversity, while measures based on variability (beta diversity) are said to be more appropriate for detecting those impacts. Theory predicts that beta diversity should increase with...
