Furia

Furia

"Drawing from history, ethnography, and anthropology, Furia speaks to Afro-Cuban heritage, magic, syncretic religion, and legacies of displacement and assimilation. With a poetic style that centers on narrative, the lyric and dramatic monologue, Menes brings to life a distinct mesh of grit and beauty, sound and sight, in a sweep of symphonious measures that celebrates as it delights."--Jacket.

El Ruido Y La Furia

El Ruido Y La Furia

Una obra maestra de la literatura que relata la degeneración progresiva de la familia Compson, sus secretos y las relaciones de amor y odio que la sostienen y la destruyen. Por primera vez, William Faulkner introduce el monólogo interior y revela los diferentes puntos de vista de sus personajes. El libro se cierra con un apéndice que descubrirá al lector los entresijos de esta saga familiar de Jefferson, Mississippi, conectándola con otros personajes de Yoknapatawpha, territorio creado por Faulkner como marco de muchas de sus novelas. English Description "I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire. . . . I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it. Because no battle is ever won he said. They are not even fought. The field only reveals to man his own folly and despair, and victory is an illusion of philosophers and fools.” --from The Sound and the Fury The Sound and the Fury is the tragedy of the Compson family, featuring some of the most memorable characters in literature: beautiful, rebellious Caddy; the manchild Benjy; haunted, neurotic Quentin; Jason, the brutal cynic; and Dilsey, their black servant. Their lives fragmented and harrowed by history and legacy, the character’s voices and actions mesh to create what is arguably Faulkner’s masterpiece and one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century.

Biology And Ecology Of Furia Gastropachae A Fungal Pathogen Of The Forest Tent Caterpillar Malacosoma Disstria

Biology And Ecology Of Furia Gastropachae A Fungal Pathogen Of The Forest Tent Caterpillar Malacosoma Disstria

The forest tent caterpillar (FTC), Malacosoma disstria Hubner (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae), is a cyclic defoliator of North American forests. The entomophthoralean fungus Furia gastropachae (Raciborski) comb. nov. has long been associated with FTC population decline, but its importance as a pathogen of this hardwood pest has never been assessed. The goal of this dissertation was to quantify the impact of F. gastropachae on FTC and investigate the influence of the abiotic environment on fungal activity. Levels of infection in field populations were as high or higher than that of nuclear polyhedrosis virus (NPV), the other major FTC pathogen, ranging from 14.5 +/- 7.3 to 25.6 +/- 7.8%. Prevalence of F. gastropachae may have been underestimated in the past because cadavers killed by this fungus are easily misdiagnosed as having died of NPV. F. gastropachae can be highly virulent to FTC larvae, with LC50s as low as 0.7 conidia/mm2, but rarely infects species outside the genus Malacosoma. Older larvae were more susceptible to infection than younger ones in laboratory bioassays, while in the field F. gastropachae was observed only in fourth and fifth instars, supporting previous hypotheses that the infection cycle is restricted to a narrow period late in the larval life cycle. F. gastropachae showed a pronounced tendency towards production of long-lived resting spores in all experiments. Resting spores were observed even within cadavers infected by other resting spores, a phenomenon not previously observed among the Entomophthorales. This may be an adaptation allowing this fungus, which has limited opportunities to initiate cycles of secondary infection via conidia, to ensure its long-term survival. Fungal activity was significantly affected by abiotic environmental variables. Host infection by resting spores was highest at intermediate levels of soil moisture. Infection of fourth instar larvae by resting spores and conidia was maximized at cooler temperatures (10 to 20°C), while in vitro growth and conidial germination tended to be optimized at slightly higher temperatures (ca. 20 to 27°C). The effect of temperature varied significantly among isolates, with some indication that the relationship may be a function of the geoclimatic origin of the isolate.
