Honeybees preferred the blueberry varieties which produced the most nectar, but visits to flowers of attractive varieties were shorter than to those of unattractive varieties.

We have shown that in situ estrogen synthesized in leiomyoma of the uterus plays a possible role in the promotion of leiomyoma cell growth via an autocrine/paracrine mechanism. In the present study, we demonstrated that leuprorelin acetate, a GnRH...
