EurekaMag.com has newly published 112,643 references on the basic and applied zoological sciences. These references contain 39,371 new abstracts and are included in the site's Research Category which covers animals and animal life, including the study of the structure, physiology, development, and classification of animals. The Life, Earth and Health Sciences Research Section 38 has now been extended to include most of the bibliographic details of these new zoological resources. In addition, the Life, Earth and Health Sciences Research Section 9 has been updated with several hundred references on virulence which is the degree a microorganism is able to produce disease by invading bodily tissues or cause severe disease.
The Life, Earth and Health Sciences Research Chapter 37206 contains several hundred of the newly published zoological references and particularly those on comparative studies of different faunas around the world. These studies include a comparative study of the development of the reproductive system of three species of buffalo fish in ponds of Moldavia, a comparative study of the epidermis of the common carp and the three Indian major carp, a comparative study of the external form and skeleton of the calcareous sponges Clathrina coriacea and Clathrina blanca from Santa Catalina Island, California, a comparative study of the oxygen equilibria of blood from 40 genera of Amazonian fishes, on a comparative study of the faunas of stem-nesting ant communities of Liberia, west Africa and Costa Rica, central America, and on a comparative study on species diversity, distribution and ecology of the Dinophyceae from Vellar Estuary and nearby Bay of Bengal.
The Life, Earth and Health Sciences Research Chapter 8001 has been updated with several hundred references on virulence which is defined as the degree a microorganism is able to produce disease by invading bodily tissues or cause severe disease. This degree of pathogenicity of a microorganism can be measured by case fatality rates, its ability to invade the tissues of the host, or by the competence of any infectious agent to produce pathological effects. These entries cover virulence and antibiotic resistance of Escherichia isolated from humans, virulence and colicinogeny of pathogenic E. coli isolated from water and people, virulence associated factors of Salmonella from molecular biology to diagnosis, virulence factors and phenotypes of 61 strains of E. coli of bovine origin that produce the cytotoxic necrotizing factor type 1 Cnf1, on virulence of Escherichia coli isolated from raw meat food handlers and equipment of meat shops, on the virulence of Mycobacterium avium complex strains from acquired immune deficiency syndrome patients and its relationship with characteristics of the parasite and host, and on virulence patterns in populations of Erysiphe graminis hordei in Europe in 1986.
The Life, Earth and Health Sciences Website EurekaMag.com was launched in 1998 and has become a comprehensive publisher of references in biology, in the applied life sciences agriculture, horticulture and forestry, in the earth sciences, in the environmental sciences, and in the health sciences. After its latest inclusion of 112,643 new references, it currently contains a total of 37,317,058 bibliographic references from as early as the beginning of the 18th century in 1703. 11,657,483 of these entries feature an abstract of their science content. Besides its newly implemented software to detect mobile devices, the site maintains RSS feeds and accounts at Twitter and Facebook.
