Collection of information, mainly from historic texts, about some common herbs used medicinally. View 1 comment. Sep 14, Diana Jones rated it it was amazing. Odinsson has crafted a very well written and attractive herbal book with the focus on plants and herbs that were used by his English and old Northern European ancestors using some very solid research foundations combined with his own studies and practices.
He also includes very thorough descriptions of each herb, such as where each plant is commonly found, how to cultivate and grow each plant, and how, or if, the plant can be added to your diet. Frankly I am thrilled to add this book to my personal library and I highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in plant folklore or medicinal uses.
The only possible qualm I have about it is that this book is not available in a printed version. But I am more then happy to settle for an e-book version for now.

In addition, as Norway nairovirus 1 and Norway phlebovirus 1 were also present in most sequence libraries, with samples originating from relatively geographically distant localities in Norway, it is also possible that these viruses are relatively common in I. Clearly, however, future studies need to be undertaken to determine if these viruses are present and prevalent in other geographic regions. Also of note was that these viruses were found between latitude To our knowledge this study, particularly the locality of Kanestraum at latitude It is evident that the currently known viral biodiversity has been systematically under-sampled and underestimated.
Clearly, meta-transcriptome sequencing enables more intricate studies aimed at understanding the fundamental patterns and processes of virus ecology and evolution. Although the sample size of ticks used in this study was relatively small, it was striking that so many novel viruses were identified from a geographically restricted sampling location, mainly southern Norway, matching the diversity of RNA viruses previously found in Asia and North America.
Clearly, such a relative abundance of viruses suggests that we are still only scratching the surface of the biodiversity of those viruses present in ticks on a global scale, and that larger and more systematic studies of I. Questing Ixodes ricinus nymphs and adults were collected by flagging the vegetation in different localities of Norway Fig. Crucially, a cold-chain was maintained during all laboratory work. Sequencing libraries were subsequently pooled in equimolar amounts. Each RNA sequence library was quality trimmed with trim galore www.
As an additional screening test, all potential virus assemblies were screened against the Conserved Doman Database www. To exclude possible endogenous viruses, all virus assemblies were blasted against the I. Finally, to assess mean sequence depth and relative frequency, the quality trimmed libraries were mapped back against all viral assemblies and the COX1 1 mitochondrial gene of I.
Following previous studies 1 we assume that a higher relative frequency suggests that the virus is more likely to be associated with ticks rather than being a component of diet or environment. Ambiguous regions in the alignments were removed with TrimAl v.
