Airborne fungal spores were monitored over periods of up to 131/2 months at three sites on Signy Island in the maritime Antarctic. Fungal spore concentrations in the air were much lower than in other parts of the world. Concentrations were very low during the austral winter but increased during the austral summer. Chlamydospores were the most abundant fungal spore type found. Spores of Cladosporium spp. were the second most frequently trapped form. All spore types samples were most abundant in the summer months, except for chlamydospores, which were most numerous during the winter. The concentration of Cladosporium spores in the air at Signy Island was compared with the concentrations of this spore type found in the air in other parts of the world. It was evident that Cladosporium loses its dominance as the most abundant component of the air spora with increasingly high latitude. The peak concentration of fungal spores occurred at two sites following the start of the thaw; at the third site, the peak occurred with the arrival of spores by long-distance transport from more northerly regions.
Syracuse (3-0) takes on South Carolina State (1-2) in the Carrier Dome on Tuesday for its fourth game of the season. SCSU’s two losses have come via Wichita State and South Carolina. Both defeats were by more than 40 points.Check out whether our beat writers think South Carolina State can upset Syracuse.Connor Grossman (3-0)Dog poundedSyracuse 96, South Carolina State 55Against one of the worst opponents it will face all year, Syracuse will really flex its offensive muscles. Look for Tyler Lydon to attempt at least 10 shots for the first time all season. He hasn’t really needed to be an integral part of SU’s offense yet, but it sure would be encouraging if he did on Tuesday. The Bulldogs have yielded an average of 84 points per game in three contents. Multiple Orange starters should post double-digit scoring games.Matt Schneidman (3-0)DoggedSyracuse 90, South Carolina State 60AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAccording to Kenpom.com, the Bulldogs are 320th out of 351 Division I teams, compared to Syracuse’s No. 8 ranking. The Orange will handle South Carolina State with ease, the only question being by how many points. The Orange ranks fourth in the country in defensive efficiency, per Kenpom, and a hapless S.C. State offense should stand no chance against the zone. One of the bigger uncertainties heading into the matchup for SU is if Taurean Thompson will play or rest his injured foot ahead of Saturday’s tilt with South Carolina.Paul Schwedelson (3-0)Snow plowedSyracuse 84, South Carolina State 44Syracuse has been solid defensively so far this season and look for it to continue on Tuesday night. The Orange will have enough offensive firepower later in the year. With five new players in the rotation, facing South Carolina State provides one more opportunity to tighten up defensively before entering the tougher portion of SU’s nonconference slate. With South Carolina, Wisconsin, Connecticut and Georgetown looming, Syracuse will almost certainly beef up with another expected victory.
