Introduction: According to the American Dietetic Association, Child care facilities (CCFs) play an essential role in the nutritional status of children as children typically spend 4-8 hours a day at a facility. As a ...
Irrigation water and microbiological safety of fresh produce : South Africa as a case study : a review
(Academic Journals, 2012-09-11)
Irrigation water is perhaps the leading pre-harvest source of contamination of fresh produce in the world. In this review, the impact of contaminated surface irrigation water on bacterial contamination of fresh produce was ...
Nonlinear, stationary electrostatic ion cyclotron waves : exact solutions for solitons, periodic waves, and wedge shaped waveforms
(American Institute of Physics, 2012-11-30)
The theory of fully nonlinear stationary electrostatic ion cyclotron waves is further developed. The existence of two fundamental constants of motion; namely, momentum flux density parallel to the background magnetic field ...
Experimental and computational studies of a fungal chitinase
Chitin, the second most abundant natural biopolymer, is composed of repeating units of N-acetyl-β-D-glucosamine and primarily forms the structural component of protective biological matrices such as fungal cell walls and ...
Food borne bacteria isolated from spices and fate of Cronobacter sakazakii ATCC 29544 in black pepper exposed to drying and various temperature conditions
(Academic Journals, 2013-03-19)
The degree of infection of Juniperus procera roots by arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi (AMF) is highly indicative of the response of plants to environmental stress and is affected by the presence of flavonoids in the roots. ...
