Genetic Diversity and Connectivity of Black Bears (Ursus americanus) in Alabama. 

Draper, John (2017-04-21)
One of the major concerns in conservation today is the loss of genetic diversity which is a frequent consequence of population isolation and small population sizes. Fragmentation of populations and persecution of carnivores ...

Genetic diversity of the fungal pathogen Corynespora cassiicola and its fungicide resistance 

Rondon, Marina N. (2020-11-23)
Corynespora cassiicola C.T. Wei is a widespread phytopathogenic fungus that causes disease in tropical and subtropical regions in up to 400 plant species, including fruits, vegetables, ornamentals, forestry, and row crops. ...

Genetic Effects on the Production of Channel Catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) Female X Blue Catfish (Ictalurus furcatus) Male Hybrid Fry 

Ballenger, Joseph (2007-08-15)
The hybrid from the mating of a female channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) with a male blue catfish (Ictalurus furcatus) exhibits heterosis for various performance traits which would make it attractive to the commercial ...

Genetic Resistance to Reniform Nematode (Rotylenchulus reniformis) in Upland Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) 

Surmelioglu, Cigdem (2011-05-09)
Reniform nematode, Rotylenchulus reniformis Linford & Oliveira, is one of the most destructive nematode pests of cotton (Gossypium spp.), and upland cotton (G. hirsutum L.), the most common cultivated type, is lacking in ...
