The constant presence of diseases or infectious agents within a given geographic area or population group. It may also refer to the usual prevalence of a given disease with such area or group. It includes holoendemic and hyperendemic diseases. A holoendemic disease is one for which a high prevalent level of infection begins early in life and affects most of the child population, leading to a state of equilibrium such that the adult population shows evidence of the disease much less commonly than do children (malaria in many communities is a holoendemic disease). A hyperendemic disease is one that is constantly present at a high incidence and/or prevalence rate and affects all groups equally. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 3d ed, p53, 78, 80)

Prehistoric birds from New Ireland, Papua New Guinea: extinctions on a large Melanesian island. (1/432)

At least 50 species of birds are represented in 241 bird bones from five late Pleistocene and Holocene archaeological sites on New Ireland (Bismarck Archipelago, Papua New Guinea). The bones include only two of seabirds and none of migrant shorebirds or introduced species. Of the 50 species, at least 12 (petrel, hawk, megapode, quail, four rails, cockatoo, two owls, and crow) are not part of the current avifauna and have not been recorded previously from New Ireland. Larger samples of bones undoubtedly would indicate more extirpated species and refine the chronology of extinction. Humans have lived on New Ireland for ca. 35,000 years, whereas most of the identified bones are 15,000 to 6,000 years old. It is suspected that most or all of New Ireland's avian extinction was anthropogenic, but this suspicion remains undetermined. Our data show that significant prehistoric losses of birds, which are well documented on Pacific islands more remote than New Ireland, occurred also on large, high, mostly forested islands close to New Guinea.  (+info)

Ability to pay for health care: concepts and evidence. (2/432)

In many developing countries people are expected to contribute to the cost of health care from their own pockets. As a result, people's ability to pay (ATP) for health care, or the affordability of health care, has become a critical policy issue in developing countries, and a particularly urgent issue where households face combined user fee burdens from various essential service sectors such as health, education and water. Research and policy debates have focused on willingness to pay (WTP) for essential services, and have tended to assume that WTP is synonymous with ATP. This paper questions this assumption, and suggests that WTP may not reflect ATP. Households may persist in paying for care, but to mobilize resources they may sacrifice other basic needs such as food and education, with serious consequences for the household or individuals within it. The opportunity costs of payment make the payment 'unaffordable' because other basic needs are sacrificed. An approach to ATP founded on basic needs and the opportunity costs of payment strategies (including non-utilization) is therefore proposed. From the few studies available, common household responses to payment difficulties are identified, ranging from borrowing to more serious 'distress sales' of productive assets (e.g. land), delays to treatment and, ultimately, abandonment of treatment. Although these strategies may have a devastating impact on livelihoods and health, few studies have investigated them in any detail. In-depth longitudinal household studies are proposed to develop understanding of ATP and to inform policy initiative which might contribute to more affordable health care.  (+info)

To contract or not to contract? Issues for low and middle income countries. (3/432)

Many low and middle income countries have inherited publicly funded and provided health services, often operating at relatively low levels of technical efficiency. Changing ideas about the management of the public sector, in particular stemming from new public management theory, are spreading to these countries, whether directly or via the recommendations of multilateral and bilateral aid agencies. Pronouncements of agencies such as the World Bank imply that competitive contracting with the private sector is likely to improve the efficiency of services provision. However, very little evidence is available on whether this is likely to be the case, and in what circumstances delivery of services through contracts with the private sector is likely to be preferable to direct provision by the public sector. This paper draws on evidence from five country case-studies of contractual arrangements, in Bombay, Papua New Guinea, South Africa, Thailand and Zimbabwe, done through collaborative research between the LSHTM Health Economics and Financing Programme and local researchers in each country. A common evaluative framework was applied in each country to selected, existing contractual arrangements. Services provided under contract and evaluated included catering, cleaning, security, diagnostic services and whole hospitals. Information is presented on the design of contracts, the process of agreeing contracts including the extent of competition, and the monitoring of contract performance. A variety of evidence, including information on the relative cost and quality of contracted out versus directly provided services in the case of South Africa, Thailand, and Bombay, is used to explore whether or not contracting out to the private sector represented a preferable means of service provision. This analysis, together with information on the capacity of the agency letting the contract, and on the wider environment including the level of development of the private sector, is used to identify which aspects of the contracting process and the context in which it takes place are important in influencing whether or not contracting with the private sector is a desirable means of service provision.  (+info)

Protection of breastfeeding in Papua New Guinea. (4/432)

In Papua New Guinea the bottle-feeding of babies has been increasing, predominantly among unemployed women of low educational status. Many women are unaware of their legal right to have breaks at work for the purpose of breastfeeding, and a high proportion of workplaces have no facilities for mothers who wish to breastfeed their children. The laws on the feeding of infants should be updated and implemented, and an effort is needed to explain the benefits of breastfeeding and the rights of working mothers.  (+info)

Aggregation and distribution of strains in microparasites. (5/432)

Recent research has shown that many parasite populations are made up of a number of epidemiologically distinct strains or genotypes. The implications of strain structure or genetic diversity for parasite population dynamics are still uncertain, partly because there is no coherent framework for the interpretation of field data. Here, we present an analysis of four published data sets for vector-borne microparasite infections where strains or genotypes have been distinguished: serotypes of African horse sickness (AHS) in zebra; types of Nannomonas trypanosomes in tsetse flies; parasite-induced erythrocyte surface antigen (PIESA) based isolates of Plasmodium falciparum malaria in humans, and the merozoite surface protein 2 gene (MSP-2) alleles of P. falciparum in humans and in anopheline mosquitoes. For each data set we consider the distribution of strains or types among hosts and any pairwise associations between strains or types. Where host age data are available we also compare age-prevalence relationships and estimates of the force of infection. Multiple infections of hosts are common and for most data sets infections have an aggregated distribution among hosts with a tendency towards positive associations between certain strains or types. These patterns could result from interactions (facilitation) between strains or types, or they could reflect patterns of contact between hosts and vectors. We use a mathematical model to illustrate the impact of host-vector contact patterns, finding that even if contact is random there may still be significant aggregation in parasite distributions. This effect is enhanced if there is non-random contact or other heterogeneities between hosts, vectors or parasites. In practice, different strains or types also have different forces of infection. We anticipate that aggregated distributions and positive associations between microparasite strains or types will be extremely common.  (+info)

Prevention of cerebral malaria in children in Papua New Guinea by southeast Asian ovalocytosis band 3. (6/432)

Southeast Asian ovalocytosis (SAO) occurs at high frequency in malarious regions of the western Pacific and may afford a survival advantage against malaria. It is caused by a deletion of the erythrocyte membrane band 3 gene and the band 3 protein mediates the cytoadherence of parasitized erythrocytes in vitro. The SAO band 3 variant may prevent cerebral malaria but it exacerbates malaria anemia and may also increase acidosis, a major determinant of mortality in malaria. We undertook a case-control study of children admitted to hospital in a malarious region of Papua New Guinea. The SAO band 3, detected by the polymerase chain reaction, was present in 0 of 68 children with cerebral malaria compared with six (8.8%) of 68 matched community controls (odds ratio = 0, 95% confidence interval = 0-0.85). Median hemoglobin levels were 1.2 g/dl lower in malaria cases with SAO than in controls (P = 0.035) but acidosis was not affected. The remarkable protection that SAO band 3 affords against cerebral malaria may offer a valuable approach to a better understanding of the mechanisms of adherence of parasitized erythrocytes to vascular endothelium, and thus of the pathogenesis of cerebral malaria.  (+info)

Peopling of Sahul: mtDNA variation in aboriginal Australian and Papua New Guinean populations. (7/432)

We examined genetic affinities of Aboriginal Australian and New Guinean populations by using nucleotide variation in the two hypervariable segments of the mtDNA control region (CR). A total of 318 individuals from highland Papua New Guinea (PNG), coastal PNG, and Aboriginal Australian populations were typed with a panel of 29 sequence-specific oligonucleotide (SSO) probes. The SSO-probe panel included five new probes that were used to type an additional 1,037 individuals from several Asian populations. The SSO-type data guided the selection of 78 individuals from Australia and east Indonesia for CR sequencing. A gene tree of these CR sequences, combined with published sequences from worldwide populations, contains two previously identified highland PNG clusters that do not include any Aboriginal Australians; the highland PNG clusters have coalescent time estimates of approximately 80,000 and 122,000 years ago, suggesting ancient isolation and genetic drift. SSO-type data indicate that 84% of the sample of PNG highlander mtDNA belong to these two clusters. In contrast, the Aboriginal Australian sequences are intermingled throughout the tree and cluster with sequences from multiple populations. Phylogenetic and multidimensional-scaling analyses of CR sequences and SSO types split PNG highland and Aboriginal Australian populations and link Aboriginal Australian populations with populations from the subcontinent of India. These mtDNA results do not support a close relationship between Aboriginal Australian and PNG populations but instead suggest multiple migrations in the peopling of Sahul.  (+info)

Polymorphism at the merozoite surface protein-3alpha locus of Plasmodium vivax: global and local diversity. (8/432)

Allelic diversity at the Plasmodium vivax merozoite surface protein-3alpha (PvMsp-3alpha) locus was investigated using a combined polymerase chain reaction/restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR/RFLP) protocol. Symptomatic patient isolates from global geographic origins showed a high level of polymorphism at the nucleotide level. These samples were used to validate the sensitivity, specificity, and reproducibility of the PCR/RFLP method. It was then used to investigate PvMsp3alpha diversity in field samples from children living in a single village in a malaria-endemic region of Papua New Guinea, with the aim of assessing the usefulness of this locus as an epidemiologic marker of P. vivax infections. Eleven PvMsp-3alpha alleles were distinguishable in 16 samples with single infections, revealing extensive parasite polymorphism within this restricted area. Multiple infections were easily detected and accounted for 5 (23%) of 22 positive samples. Pairs of samples from individual children provided preliminary evidence for high turnover of P. vivax populations.  (+info)

Coffee production in PNG dates back to 1926/1927 when the first Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee[3] seeds were planted.[4] The Coffee Research Institute claims that coffee was introduced to British Papua in 1890,[5] although it is widely accepted that commercial production only took off in the country in the late 1920s. In Sangara, Papua New Guinea in the foothills in the southeast of the country,[6] 18 commercial coffee plantations were established in 1926, paving the way for commercial production from 1928.[7] In the 1960s, the infrastructure developed significantly in Papua New Guinea which facilitated a marked growth in the industry, easing the transportation of coffee beans from plantations to the mills to be processed and exported.[5] The coffee industry in Papua New Guinea thrived in the 1970s, benefiting from a slump in production in Brazil on the international market because of problems with frosts.[5] In the 1980s, coffee plantation production declined in Papua New Guinea and ...

Abstract Bancroftian filariasis has been reported in several areas of Papua New Guinea. The epidemiologic features and natural history of Wuchereria bancrofti infection in this geographic region, however, have not been well-defined. The objective of this study was to assess the parasitological and clinical features of bancroftian filariasis in a community in East Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea. In a village of 99 individuals, the overall prevalence of microfilaremia was 68%. The microfilarial carrier rate was high in those ≤ 10 years (62%), remained elevated in the 11-20, 21-30, and 31-40 age groups (42-55%), and peaked in subjects ≥41 years old (90%). The geometric mean level of parasitemia in all subjects with patent infection was 3,198 microfilariae/ml blood. This value was 78 parasites/ml in the ≤10-year-old age group, increased to 1,753 in 21 to 30-year-olds and was markedly elevated in subjects ≥41 years old (6, 792 microfilariae/ml). Acute symptoms of filariasis (lymphadenitis and

A comparative study of cases of juvenile laryngeal papillomatosis from Papua New Guinea (n = 3) and Brisbane, Australia (n = 9) was carried out. In situ hybridisation reactions for human papillomavirus (HPV) types 6 and 11 occurred in 11 cases. All three cases from Papua New Guinea and eight from Australia gave positive signals. A negative reaction was observed in one Australian case. The intensity of the reaction was strong in seven cases, moderate in one, and weak in three. An equivocal reaction was also noted with probes for types 16 and 18, and types 31, 33, and 35 in two cases from Australia and one from Papua New Guinea. It is concluded that as similar staining patterns and intensities occurred in cases from both areas, the aetiology is the same. The equivocal reactions noted in three cases were probably due to cross hybridisation rather than multiple infection.. ...
This study examines how policy debates on REDD+ have been framed by the media in Papua New Guinea. The content analysis covers print media articles mentioning REDD(+) or carbon trade/carbon trading published between December 2005 and December 2010 from the countrys three highest selling and/or most influential newspapers. The study finds that media coverage focussed more on REDD+ issues at the national level, although international issues also gained media attention, particularly Papua New Guineas leadership role in advocating for REDD+ to be part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). REDD+ was often framed in political and economic terms. The analysis reveals that national government actors were the dominant voices in the REDD+ debate in Papua New Guinea, although environmental NGOs, NGO coalitions and research institutes were also prominent. However, the voices and opinions of local people and communities were missing from the debate. ...

Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea off the north east corner of Australia. It is a land of high mountain ranges and tropical rain forests, with comparatively few roads. Most of the people (around 85%) live in rural areas, relying on subsistence farming, and can only be reached by walking from the nearest road or airstrip. Over 800 languages are spoken.. Out of a population of 5,140,476, 4,934,098 describe themselves as Christians (2000 census figures). Of that number, 166,046 (3.2%) are Anglicans. Roman Catholics make up 27.0%, Lutherans 19.5% and the United Church 11.5%. Other churches account for the rest. There is a high degree of ecumenical co-operation, particularly in the areas of health and education. More than half of the rural health work, and nearly all of the training of nurses and community health workers, is carried out by the churches.. The Anglican Province of Papua New Guinea is made up of five dioceses - Aipo Rongo, Dogura, New Guinea Islands, ...
The outbreak of chikungunya in Vanimo is still ongoing. There are grave concerns that the outbreak will spread throughout the country; as of this writing, confirmed or suspected cases have been reported in 8 other provinces (Madang, West New Britain, East New Britain, New Ireland, Eastern Highlands, Oro, Chimbu, and Morobe) in Papua New Guinea.. Although no previous outbreaks of chikungunya in Papua New Guinea have been documented, a study conducted in the mid-1970s reported that the seroprevalence of CHIKV was ≤30% in some regions of the country (5). A similar study at that time also reported a high seroprevalence of CHIKV throughout Indonesia and Southeast Asia (6). These studies suggest that there may have been a widespread outbreak of chikungunya in the region during preceding years. However, the antigenic cross-reactivity of arboviruses is widely recognized and cannot be ruled out as a cause of the high seropositivity to CHIKV. The broad age distribution of persons in the outbreak ...

Papua New Guinea (PNG) was only mildly impacted on the financial front during the global crisis. Although the financial sector in PNG has been a source of strength in 2000, vulnerabilities exist and need to be carefully managed. There are important steps needed to strengthen the regulation and supervision of the banking and insurance sectors. The development of local government securities markets is important for system stability. Five years after the enactment of the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA), there is still no legislation on terrorist financing.
Papua New Guinea (PNG)s National Department of Health is a statutory organisation focused on the delivery of better health services for the people of Papua New Guinea.

Australia refuses to accept any asylum seekers arriving by boat and instead pays Papua New Guinea and the island nation of Nauru to house them in camps.. But the conditions have been described as draconian by human rights groups and some people have sued over alleged physical and psychological injuries, and false imprisonment.. The policy has seen many people stuck there for years, with few options on where to go.. Australian authorities say the policy is vital to deter people from attempting dangerous ocean crossings to try to get to the country..

The 19th-century naturalist Alfred Wallace used the term Malay Archipelago as the title of his influential book documenting his studies in the region. Wallace also referred to the area as the Indian Archipelago and the Indo-Australian Archipelago.[8][9] He included within the region the Solomon Islands and the Malay Peninsula due to physiographic similarities.[4] As Wallace noted,[10] there are arguments for excluding Papua New Guinea for cultural and geographical reasons: Papua New Guinea is culturally quite different from the other countries in the region, and the island of New Guinea is geologically not part of the continent of Asia, as the islands of the Sunda Shelf are (see Australia).. The archipelago was called the East Indies[11] from the late 16th century and throughout the European colonial era. It is still sometimes referred to as such,[5] but broader usages of the East Indies term had included Indochina and the Indian subcontinent. The area is called Nusantara in the ...
This study focuses on pig husbandry and its changes of the Bosavi in Highlands fringe of Papua New Guinea. Because New Guinea Island locates the east of the Wallace Line, pigs should be restricted Sus scrofa domesticus. However, around the habitat there are many wild pigs harmful to cultivation and attacking humans. Intervention to pig reproduction is minimum, that domestic sows copulate with wild boar in forests, because all male piglets are castrated to avoid becoming wild. Piglets are fed about 2 months around the owners house, and then released to forests with daily feeding. When the owner makes fewer efforts, sometimes piglets become wild. When owners still domesticate pregnant sows, piglets will be domestic, or vice versa piglets will be wild. Pig/human ratio was 0.55 in 2006 smaller than figures of Highlands societies. The Bosavis husbandry suggests the early form of pig domestication, in which biological classification between wild and domestic is obscure.. However, people classify ...

While more than 80 per cent of people are engaged in subsistence agriculture and village food gardens are visible across the landscape, widespread malnutrition, especially in children, is stubbornly evident.. Last year this under-reported health issue, which contributes to nearly half of all hospital admissions, was declared a silent emergency in the country by UNICEF. Dr Fiona Kupe, a paediatrician with the National Capital District Health Services in the capital, Port Moresby, and member of the PNG Women Doctors Association agrees. But she points out the quantity of food is not the main issue.. Mothers lack of knowledge about nutrition during pregnancy and the first six months of a babys life, when exclusive breastfeeding is best, and about complementary feeds at six months of age and onwards are some of the most critical factors in the initial onset of malnutrition in newborn babies and early infants, Kupe told IPS.. The rate of exclusive breastfeeding in Papua New Guinea drops ...

It has been estimated that there are more than 60 million Hepatitis C virus (HCV) carriers in the World Health Organisations Western Pacific region (WHO-WPR), where liver cancer is among the top three causes of cancer death. WHO and the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention report the prevalence of HCV in the South Pacific islands (countries within the WHO-WPR) to be high (5-10% and |2% respectively). However, since HCV is not tested for in many of these countries, there is sparse data available to support this assertion. We screened ∼2000 apparently healthy individuals from Papua New Guinea, Fiji and Kiribati and found a sero-prevalence of 2.0%, 0.1% and 0%, respectively. All sero-positive samples tested negative for HCV RNA. Curious as to why all the sero-positive individuals were negative for HCV-RNA, we also screened them for the HCV protective IL28B SNP markers rs12979860 and rs8099917. All antibody-positive participants bar one had HCV protective haplotypes. Our results suggest that HCV

During a prospective study of red cell variants and severe malaria in children, a surprising observation was the occurrence of dark urine. Children were grouped according to urine findings: 22 had dark urine that contained a haem protein (Group I), 93 had urine of normal colour that contained a haem protein (Group II) and 236 had normal urine (Group III). To investigate the cause of dark urine, haemolysis and muscle cell injury were assessed. Intravascular haemolysis was greater in Group I than in Groups II and III. However, anaemia was more severe in Group III and is likely to have resulted mainly from extravascular haemolysis. Median plasma myoglobin concentrations were greater in Groups I and II than Group III (P = 0.00060). Plasma myoglobin was greater in children with cerebral malaria, hyperlactataemia and those who died but was not associated with acidosis. Urine myoglobin was greater in Group I than Groups II and III (P = 0.00054). It is likely that both haemoglobin and myoglobin contributed to
Studies regarding the genetic makeup of Aboriginal groups are still ongoing, but evidence has suggested that they have genetic inheritance from ancient Asian but not more modern peoples, share some similarities with Papuans, but have been isolated from Southeast Asia for a very long time. Before extensive European settlement, there were over 250 Aboriginal languages.[5][6]. Aboriginal Australians are genetically most similar to the indigenous populations of Papua New Guinea, and more distantly related to groups from East Indonesia. They are quite distinct from the indigenous populations of Borneo and Malaysia, sharing relatively little genomic information as compared to the groups from Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. This indicates that Australia was isolated for a long time from the rest of Southeast Asia, and remained untouched by migrations and population expansions into that area.[7]. In a 2001 study, blood samples were collected from some Warlpiri people in the Northern Territory, to study ...

Serum levels of reactive nitrogen intermediates (RNI; nitrate plus nitrite) were measured in 92 patients with cerebral malaria in the Madang Province of Papua New Guinea. RNI levels were compared to disease severity and clinical outcome, and correlated with both the depth of coma on admission and its duration. Median levels were higher among children with deeper coma than among those with lighter coma (35.6 microM vs. 16.7 microM; P = 0.008) and also among children with longer duration of coma (72 h; 59.3 microM vs. 19.3 microM; P = 0.004). RNI levels also correlated with clinical outcome, fatal cases having significantly higher RNI levels than survivors (41.2 microM vs. 18.5 microM; P = 0.014). Thus, high RNI levels are associated with indices of disease severity and may predict outcome in children with cerebral malaria. These data are consistent with the hypothesis that nitric oxide is involved in the pathogenesis of coma in human cerebral malaria.
New Guinea is one of five high biodiversity wilderness areas, and frog diversity is exceptionally large, with more than 400 species described to date. The microhylid frog genus Mantophryne is endemic to New Guinea and consists of four species, three of which have narrow geographic distributions and a fourth, M. lateralis, with a broad range that spans the eastern half of the island. Here, we sequence 104 Mantophryne samples for three mitochondrial and three nuclear loci to reconstruct the first phylogeny of the genus and to examine spatial patterns of diversity within M. lateralis. Results indicate that the wide-ranging M. lateralis is composed of at least nine geographically separated and well-supported lineages that represent putative species. Biogeographic analysis suggests that Mantophryne evolved on the eastern Papuan peninsula with subsequent dispersal westward, as well as overwater dispersal events to the Louisiade and DEntrecasteaux archipelagos ...
The longest river on the land of New Guinea is the Sepik River. The river begins from the Victor Emanuel Range in the central mountains of Papua New Guinea. In a snakelike fashion, just like the Amazon River, the Sepik flows to the Bismarck Sea. Unlike in most other huge rivers, the Sepik has no delta, but it runs straight into the ocean. The total length of the river is 1,126 kilometers or 700miles. It is also considered one of the last surviving undisturbed habitats in the world.. ...
Abstract. Infectious diseases often present as coinfections that may affect each other in positive or negative ways. Understanding the relationship between two coinfecting pathogens is thus important to understand the risk of infection and burden of disease caused by each pathogen. Although coinfections with Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax are very common outside Africa, it is yet unclear whether infections by the two parasite species are positively associated or if infection by one parasite suppresses the other. In this study, we use bivariate Poisson lognormal models (BPLM) to estimate covariate-adjusted associations between the incidence of infections (as measured by the force of blood-stage infections, molFOI) and clinical episodes caused by both P. falciparum and P. vivax in a cohort of Papua New Guinean children. A BPLM permits estimation of either positive or negative correlation, unlike most other multivariate Poisson models. Our results demonstrated a moderately positive association
There is an urgent need for good quality eye care services in PNG. A Rapid Assessment of Avoidable Blindness (RAAB) conducted in 2017 revealed that over 40,000 adults aged 50+ years across all regions in PNG are blind in both eyes, and almost 70,000 are blind in one eye.. Outreaches are a simple, cost-effective way to reach those in need. They also show that training indigenous doctors and nurses in eye care is the only way to eliminate avoidable blindness and vision impairment in a sustainable way.. Outreach in East Sepik. In May this year, a team from the Eye Clinic at Modilon General Hospital in Madang organised an outreach to one the poorest places in the country: East Sepik.. Traversing the country by boat and plane, the team arrived in East Sepik to find the majority of the older population there either partially or completely blind in one or both eyes, compromising their fishing and gardening livelihoods. This created a significant financial burden on their families and the wider ...

Magistrates: major actors in enforcing fisheries law. In many countries, magistrates are important players in the protection of fisheries resources and supporting conservation and sustainable fishing practices. A lack of effective enforcement, and the imposition of light penalties on offenders, can have significant negative impacts upon a countrys fisheries resources. To highlight the role that magistrates can play in this context, from 29 October to 4 November 2016, a Workshop on Fisheries Law Enforcement was held in Madang, Papua New Guinea (PNG). The workshop, the first of its kind in the country and a rare occurrence in the Pacific region, targeted senior magistrates of PNGs Magisterial Courts where fisheries violations are first received and tried as criminal cases. Senior magistrates and fisheries law enforcement officers were introduced to international and regional legal frameworks for fisheries and the global efforts to fight illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. The aim ...
The dartfish Ptereleotris brachyptera is described as a new species from eight specimens from Ngargol Island, Palau, and one from Majuro Atoll, Marshall Islands, from lagoons on silty sand and rubble substrata in 20 to 38 m depth. The type specimens, 39.1 to 58.2 mm SL, were first believed to be subadults of P. microlepis or P. hanae until mature fish were found in the series. Ptereleotris brachyptera differs from P. microlepis in having fewer dorsal and anal rays, a more slender body, and a red instead of black bar at the pectoral-fin base. It differs from P. hanae in its very low first dorsal fin and lacking a dark purplish gray stripe on the lower side. It differs from both species in its smaller size and rounded instead of pointed corners on the caudal fin. Ptereleotris crossogenion is described from a single female specimen, 40.7 mm SL, collected from silty sand and rubble in 27 m depth in the lagoon of Madang Province, Papua New Guinea. It is most similar to P. brachyptera, differing in ...
Health and life expectancy. Australians, on average, can expect to live about 20 years longer than people living in either Nauru or PNG. Australia spends more money (a larger percentage of a larger amount) on health and this is made obvious in the extended life expectancy and the lower infant mortality rates.. Education. The education ratio describes the number of enrolments in a given level of education compared to the eligible population for that level of education. Therefore, where there is universal education for the school-age population, the ratio will be expressed as more than 100.. In Australia, that is true for both primary and secondary education: all the school-age people are at school and there are others also engaged in both primary and secondary education.. In both Nauru and Papua New Guinea there appears to be universal primary education. However, this is not the case for secondary education. The statistics indicate that people living in Nauru and PNG cannot expect a secondary ...

Yes. I must point out that it is not only the relative distributions of K and C in Australia/New Guinea that leads me to believe C was the first haplogroup into the region. I think we can assume that the first crossing was made by the shortest route: Timor (Southern Wallacea) to the Kimberly. Later groups moved further along the coast. C1d is exclusively Australian and, although C1c is found in New Guinea it is primarily in the Birds Head, then along the north coast, and out into the Pacific. The latter in the form C1c1 with C1c1a in Polynesia, about 4000 years old. Some years ago Ebizur calculated that C1c was some 45,000 years old in Southern Wallacea but just some 8-10,000 years old in New Guinea/Melanesia. Presumably C1 arrived in Australia very soon after it arrived in Southern Wallacea. On the other hand Ebizur remarked that the most widespread clades of K, M and S in New Guinea/Melanesia were surprisingly young, nothing older than 10,000 years. Of course that doesnt mean the ancestral ...
We have been studying the evolution and distribution of Anopheles mosquito species across our region (Australia, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands). We develop and use DNA-based tools to identify the malaria transmitting Anopheles species in the region in order to study their biology, ecology and potential to adapt to mosquito control strategies. Evolutionary and population genetic studies are used to assess the historical and contemporary movement of mosquitoes and we employ computer-based spatial studies to further investigate these vectors varied distributions and ecology. Our aim is to deliver better knowledge of our regional malaria vectors, develop an extensive malaria vector spatial-genetic database to assist in the design, execution and monitoring of future mosquito control strategies ...
