Comparison of Standard Culture-Based Method to Culture-Independent Method for Evaluation of Hygiene Effects on the Hand Microbiome

C. Zapka, J. Leff, J. Henley, J. Tittl, E. De Nardo, M. Butler, R. Griggs, N. Fierer, S. Edmonds-Wilson

The hand microbiome is a critical area of research for diverse fields, such as public health and forensics. The suitability of culture-independent methods for assessing effects of hygiene products on microbiota has not been demonstrated. This is the first controlled laboratory clinical hand study to have compared traditional hand hygiene test methods with newer culture-independent characterization methods typically used by skin microbiologists. This study resulted in recommendations for hand hygiene product testing, development of methods, and future hand skin microbiome research. It also demonstrated the importance of inclusion of skin physiological metadata in skin microbiome research, which is atypical for skin microbiome studies.

A Comparison of Behavioral Patterns of Male and Female Stoplight Parrotfish, Sparisoma viride, in San Salvador, The Bahamas 

J. Tittl, N. Spoerl, J. M. Welch

Stoplight parrotfish, characteristically large and brightly colored, are tropical fish. They are dominant herbivores in reef habitats of The Caribbean and Atlantic Ocean. Stoplight parrotfish are sequential hermaphrodites, and thus can change sex, in this case from female to male. Supermale (n=32), group male (n=31) and female (n=47) stoplight parrotfish were observed on reefs surrounding San Salvador, The Bahamas during May 2008, to examine behavioral differences between the sexes. Behaviors were categorized, and specific behavior engagement was quantified. There were significant differences in the behaviors of supermale and female stoplight parrotfish (χ2 = 24.82; P<<0.001)...
