A nematode that can manipulate the behaviour of slugs.

The ability of parasites to manipulate the behaviour of their hosts has evolved multiple times, and has a clear fitness benefit to the parasite in terms of facilitating growth, reproduction and transfer to suitable hosts. The mechanisms by which these behavioural changes are induced are poorly understood, but in many cases parasite manipulation of serotonergic signalling in the host brain is implicated. Here we report that Phasmarhabditis hermaphrodita, a parasite of terrestrial gastropod molluscs, can alte...


Evaluation of ozonated water on the basis of ASTM E1174 for standardized testing of hand wash formulations for healthcare personnel.

Anthropogenic water bodies as drought refuge for aquatic macroinvertebrates and macrophytes.

Ecological research associated with the importance of refuges has tended to focus on natural rather than anthropogenic water bodies. The frequency of disturbances, including drought events, is predicted to increase in many regions worldwide due to human-induced climate change. More frequent disturbance will affect freshwater ecosystems by altering hydrologic regimes, water chemistry, available habitat and assemblage structure. Under this scenario, many aquatic biota are likely to rely on permanent water bod...

Structure and Dynamics of Water Confined in Imogolite Nanotubes.

We have studied the properties of water adsorbed inside nanotubes of hydrophilic imogolite, an aluminium silicate clay mineral, by means of molecular simulations. We used a classical force field to describe the water and the flexible imogolite nanotube, and validated it against data obtained from first-principles molecular dynamics. With it, we observe a strong structuration of the water confined in the nanotube, with specific adsorption sites and a distribution of hydrogen bond patterns. The combination of...

Recycling of drinking water treatment residue as an additional medium in columns for effective P removal from eutrophic surface water.

This study assesses the feasibility of recycling drinking water treatment residue (DWTR) to treat eutrophic surface water in a one-year continuous flow column test.

Increasing water solubility with decreasing droplet size limits the use of water NMR diffusometry in submicron W/O-emulsion droplet size analysis.

Water droplet size analysis of water-in-oil emulsions using water NMR diffusometry yielded values that were, from a certain shear intensity onwards, independent from the shear which was used during production. It was assumed that the constant water droplet size, obtained for samples prepared at higher shear, were only apparent droplet diameters. Considering the well-known increased solubility of the dispersed phase in the continuous phase at smaller droplet sizes, it is hypothesized that water diffusion in ...
