- ... Buggy Creek virus (family Togaviridae, genus Alphavirus, BCRV) is an alphavirus within the western equine encephalitis virus complex whose primary vector is the swallow bug, Oeciacus vicarius Horvath (Hemiptera: Cimicidae), an ectoparasite of the colonially nesting cliff swallow, Petrochelidon pyrrhonota, that is also a frequent host for the virus.

- ... The modification of cotton cellulose by environmental conditions or by chemical treat ments for specific end uses ordinarily occurs at submicroscopic levels. Observations with the electron microscope have proven to be useful in delineating regions of the fiber cellulose affected by a variety of treatments, including dyeing, mercerization, acid and enzymatic hydrolysis, derivative formation, and re ...
