Effects of Different Ambient Temperatures on Caecal Microbial Composition in Broilers

microbes produce various essential metabolites that play vital roles in nutrient digestion, metabolism, and immunity modulation (Hou et al. 2016). Furthermore, caecal microbiota and its modulation are closely associated with poultry health, productivity, and disease control (Montoro-Dasi et al. 2020). The environmental temperature could affect the composition of intestinal microbiota (Wang et al. 2018). For example, the composition of broilers’ gut microbiome varies seasonally (Oakley et al. 2018). The

DYNAMIC REGULATION OF THE PERCENTAGE COMPOSITION OF THE MIX DIESEL AND BIODIESEL FUEL

The use of internal combustion engines increase environmental pollution and dependence on fossil fuels. The biodiesel fuel, which is renewable, more environment friendly, and cheaper, is a good alternative for diesel engines. The use of biodiesel fuel leads to a drop in diesel power and an increase in fuel consumption. To prevent these shortcomings, it is proposed to use dynamic regulation of the percentage composition of a mixture of diesel and biodiesel fuel. The modernization of diesel

It does so by reviewing traditional understandings of the idea, and a recent interpretation by Warren Moran, which is elaborated upon in a case study of the Coonawarra wine region.

Exopolysaccharides Produced by Lactobacillus rhamnosus KL 53A and Lactobacillus casei Fyos Affect Their Adhesion to Enterocytes

Probiotics promote and help to maintain beneficial microbiota composition of the gastrointestinal tract ecosystem and have a positive impact on the host’s health. Production of exopolysaccharides is an important feature of probiotic lactobacilli. It increases the chance of their survival in the gastrointestinal tract and promotes adhesion to the epithelium; therefore, exopolysaccharides are important for the process of colonization.

Multidisciplinary studies conducted worldwide by microbiologists and physicians suggest that the microorganisms which colonize the human body can more actively influence the state of health than previously thought. The most important role in the regulation of the homeostasis is played by ontocenoses of the intestine. Imbalanced taxonomic composition

It is estimated at present that worldwide about 2 billion people suffer from diseases of the oral cavity, mainly periodontal disease and dental caries. Importantly, the oral microflora involved in local infections may spread and cause systemic, even life-threatening infections

Rhabditidae dominated the rainy season in both forest soils. Rarefaction curves (RC) suggest that sampling to detect more nematode taxa should be more intensive in the rainy season. The forest soils have complex, stable soil food webs with high connectance and decomposition channels dominated by

The high genetic differentiation among the 12 populations (0.331) might be due to past invasion and expansion routes of PWN in northeastern and southeastern Kyushu. The distinct genetic composition of populations within the northwestern, central western, and southwestern Kyushu seems to be mostly related to the extinction of pine forests and long-range migration of PWN due to human

For sensor development, characterising the response of a particular volume of material over a broad frequency range is desirable, since separate measurements could generate errors due to spatial variability. A coaxial probe has been designed for measurement of the permittivity of smooth and flat, solid or liquid samples over the frequency range from 1 Hz to 6 GHz
