Frontispiece: The shorelines of
Kawhia Harbour, a large
embayrnent on the north-westem
coastline of the North Island of
New Zealand, have been the
prime sources of Late Jurassic
ammonites since the first collections
by Hochstener in 1859.
The illustrations show representative
views ofthe south side
of the harbour.
Other than this, automation and optimization of production engineering was attempted
in various fields. Okumoto et al. (2005D) optimized the block allocation on the
assembly area using simulated annealing method. Wibisono et al. (2007) optimized
block division planning using genetic algorithm and product model. Universal
Shipbuilding Corporation (2008) developed a high performance NC Printing Machine,
which enables fast printing irrespective of the number of characters and lines to be
Containers for collecting live hosts may include any type
of cage that prevents escape, including plastic vials with
pinholes in the lids or with cotton plugs for air circulation
and prevention of condensation. The addition of a drying
agent, such as silica gel, to the container used for
temporary storage will slow or prevent germination of
entomopathogenic fungi and bacteria, and help eliminate
the growth of saprobic fungi on specimens (Figure 1.3).
Aquatic invertebrates and specimens containing
nematodes and certain protistan parasites should not be
allowed to dry.
