Selective predation in a euryphagous invertebrate predator, Pardosa vancouveri (Arachnida, Araneae)
(Canadian Entomologist, 1982)
Selective predation (i.e., non-random feeding) was studied in a laboratory system that allowed individual lycosid spiders, Pardosa vancouveri, to feed on prey populations consisting of one or two kinds of insects. Various ...
Laboratory work in distance education
(Distance Education, 1982)
A major concern in distance education is how to overcome the problems associated with laboratory components of courses. In this paper we review the general importance of laboratory work for students, summarise the ...

(Entomological News, 1983)
Scanning electron microscopy of a harvestman, Homolophus biceps. that lacked both eyes and ocular tubercle revealed no indication of external damage or healing. Internally, light microscope sections showed no evidence ...

Overwintering aggregations of Leiobunum paessleri in caves and mines (Arachnida, Opiliones).
(Journal of Arachnology, 1984)
In the forested mountain areas of southwestern Canada, Leiobunull1 paessleri (Roewer) form overwintering aggregations in the twilight regions of moist caves and mines. Each aggregation consists of adults of both sexes ...
High fat diets and mouse colon mucosal membranes: a centrifugation study.
(Cancer Letters, 1983)
Female Swiss mice were fed on a control diet (laboratory chow, 6% fat) or high fat diets (laboratory chow with added fat, principally corn oil, to produce a fat content of 16% or 23%). Homogenate of colon mucosa ...

In one experiment Swiss mice were maintained on a 16 or 23% fat diet (laboratory chow with added fat, principally corn on) or on laboratory chow alone (5.5% fat), In another experiment CS7BU1 mice were given a 23% fat ...
Strategies of subcellular fractionation suitable for analysis of peroxisomes and microperoxisomes of animal tissues.
(International Journal of Biochemistry, 1983)
Strategies of subcellular fractionation are reviewed from the perspective of their utility in the analysis of peroxisomes. The considerable potential inherant in the method of rate dependent banding In zonal rotors is ...
