New data on known species of Hirschmanniella and Pratylenchus (Rhabditida, Pratylenchidae) from Iran and South Africa

The root-lesion nematodes belong to the family Pratylenchidae and cause severe damage on various crops and yield reduction (Perry and Moens, 2013). The genus Hirschmanniella has been established by Luc and Goodey (1964). To date, three known species of Hirschmanniella, namely, H. anchoryzae (Ebsary and Anderson, 1982), H. gracilis (De Man, 1880; Luc and Goodey, 1964), and H. oryzae (Van Breda de Haan, 1902; Luc and Goodey, 1964), and with two unknown Hirschmanniella have been reported from Iran

Analysis of methionine synthase (rs1805087) gene polymorphism in autism patients in Northern Iran

this study was to analyze the association of MTR A2756G gene polymorphism (rs1805087) and the risk of autism in a population in northern Iran. The prevalence of MTR A2756G polymorphism was determined in 108 children with autism and 130 controls in northern Iran. Genotypes and allele frequencies were determined in patients and controls by polymerase chain reaction‑restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR‑RFLP). The prevalence of genotype frequencies of AA, AG and GG in autistic children were

Diversity and seasonal fluctuation of tylenchid plant-parasitic nematodes in association with alfalfa in the Kerman Province (Iran)

Worldwide, alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.), a flowering plant belonging to the family Fabaceae, is cultivated as a forage crop (Tucak et al., 2008). It is the most important forage crop in Iran due to its superior feeding value for cattle, which is the main meat/protein food source (Tucak et al., 2008). The genus Medicago comprises many species, with up to 23 being cultivated in Iran (Ghanavati et al., 2007). A wide range of plant-parasitic nematodes have been associated with alfalfa crops in

However, transportation is the most important challenge in cement distribution because of weak structure of the transportation fleet and its independent action. Independence of and

For real data application, we use a portfolio of a major automobile insurer in Iran in 2007-2008, with a subsample of 59,547 policies available in their portfolio. We then proceed to compare the estimated premiums with the real premiums. The results demonstrate that there is strong positive dependency between the real

Because there are no previous studies on the frequency of isoagglutinin titers in Iran, our study will assess information from group O blood donors in this country for the first time to highlight the importance of studying isoagglutinin titers in each unique population.

Two different nematode species were recovered from pomegranate decaying fruit in two localities in Southern Italy: the mycetophagus nematode Sheraphelenchus sucus and a bacterial feeder nematode belonging to the Panagrolaimidae (Rhabditida) family. Morphometrics of the Italian population of S. sucus closely resemble that of the type population, whereas some differences were found when compared with another population from Iran.

Are Entomopathogenic Nematodes Effective Biological Control Agents Against the Carob Moth, Ectomyelois ceratoniae?

The carob moth (Ectomyelois ceratoniae) is the key pest of pomegranate, which causes a significant percentage of losses in pomegranate orchards and warehouses of Iran annually. The pest larvae are characterized by displaying a cryptic behavior within the fruit, which avoids most routine control techniques, especially chemical method. The low efficiency of traditional measurements and also the rich species diversity of natural enemies within the infested fruits highlight the necessity

Data of an Iranian Population of L. proximus Sturhan & Argo, 1983, with taxonomic revision of L. israelensis Peneva, Orion, Shlevin, Bar-Eyal & Brown, 1998 (Nematoda: Longidoridae) and Proposal for a New Synonymy

Longidorus proximus (Sturhan and Argo, 1983) was originally described as a parthenogenetic species. Later, a bisexual population was reported by Roca (1986). The species was reported from Iran in a conference abstract, but the morphological and morphometric data of this population were not available (Niknam et al., 2006). Longidorus israelensis (Peneva et al., 1998) is currently only known by its type population (Peneva et al., 1998) and has not been reported since its description. It was

The phenotype (referred to as I-int) was shown to be inherited, being passed through two generations, but none of the members of the families had displayed an adult i phenotype. The I-int phenotype detected showed an ethnic association because all three subjects belonged to an endogamous Parsi community that has migrated to India some centuries ago from Persia, the present-day Iran.

Victimization in traditional and cyberbullying as risk factors for substance use, self-harm and suicide attempts in high school students

Introduction Traditional bullying (or peer bullying) is defined as a repetitive and damaging act that contains a power imbalance (1). Research has shown that many students have experienced traditional bullying victimization. A study indicated that the prevalence rates of being a victim of traditional bullying in the last month were 16.2% (2). The results of other studies demonstrated that about 30 to 50% of students were bullied at school (3-5). Also, a study was accomplished in Iran and its
