The interactions between predator diversity and primary consumer abundance can include direct effects and indirect, cascading effects. Understanding these effects on immature Anopheles mosquitoes is important in sub-Saharan Africa, where most cases of malaria occur. Aquatic predators and immature mo...
The importance of policy in emissions inventory accuracy--a lesson from British Columbia, Canada.
Actual atmospheric emissions in northeast British Columbia, Canada, are much higher than reported emissions. The addition of upstream oil and gas sector sources not included in the year-2000 emissions inventory of Criteria Air Contaminants (CACs) increases annual totals of nitrogen oxides, sulfur ox...

What is the role of non-governmental organizations--NGOs--in the process of industrial delocalization and socio-spatial redistribution of occupational and environmental risks? In an attempt to contribute to this debate, this study approaches the issue in a very specific socio-historical context, mar...
17beta-estradiol and enriched environment accelerate cognitive recovery after focal brain ischemia.
We hypothesized that 17beta-estradiol combined with an EE would accelerate cognitive recovery after focal brain ischemia in ovariectomized rats and that recovery would be related to altered expression of nerve growth factor-induced gene (NGFI)-A in the hippocampus. 17beta-estradiol or placebo pellet...
Cutaneous leishmaniasis: disease susceptibility and pharmacogenetic implications.
Cutaneous leishmaniasis is a major tropical infection of public health importance caused by a number of vector-borne Leishmania protozoa species. Evidence supports a highly complex etiology. Environmental, parasite and host factors determine pathogenesis, and result in a diverse clinical spectrum of...
Obese girls differences in neighbourhood perceptions, screen time and socioeconomic status according to level of physical activity.
The purpose of this study was to investigate perceptions of neighbourhood, amount of screen time and socioeconomic status (SES) in active and non-active 'overweight/obese girls'. The sample comprised 162 girls aged 14.1 +/- 1.5 years old. Girls were assigned as active obese (AO) and...
