A behavioural assay based on a ‘homosexual’ response in males has revealed that female Harmothoe imbricata release a substance that induces pair formation. Extracts from unfertilized spawned oocytes (diameter approximately 120 μm), but not sub-mature oocytes (90 μm diameter) removed directly from the coelomic cavity, have significant pair formation-inducing activity in comparison to the control. Preliminary results indicate that the substance is stable under standard purification techniques and larger than 10 kDa, as well as being heat and trypsin insensitive.
We present results of EUVE spectrophotometry of the EUV luminous polar, QS Tel (RE1938-461), together with contemporaneous optical photometry and spectroscopy. In marked contrast to the ROSAT survey observations, the EUVE light curve shows two flux maxima per orbital cycle, implying that both magnetic poles were active. A deep, narrow dip is observed during one of the two flux maxima, exhibiting a complex morphology which includes pronounced flickering behaviour. Although this feature is probably caused by stream occultation of the emission region, the apparent lack of spectral hardening at this time disfavours photoelectric absorption by cold gas as the dominant source of opacity. Whilst the overall EUVE spectrum can be characterized by a low temperature (~15eV) blackbody, implying a large soft/hard component flux ratio (~50), tentative evidence of an absorption edge from NeVI at 85A and lines due to NeVIII and NeVII at 98Å and 116Å respectively indicate that more sophisticated models must be employed. Quasi-simultaneous optical photometry shows a substantial change in the light curve over an interval of just 3 days and little evidence of correlated behaviour with the EUV flux. We consider the implications of these results on the accretion geometry and the structure of the accretion flow.
We present soft x-ray observations made with the Einstein Observatory Imaging Proportional Counter (IPC) of IC443, W44 and W49B (for details of the observatory and instruments see Giacconi et al. 1979). The x-ray emission from IC443 and W44 is clearly concentrated within the interior of the remnant with little or no evidence for a limb-brightened shell. Significant spectral differences are found across the x-ray images in both remnants which are interpreted as being due to a combination of differential absorption by molecular clouds and intrinsic spatial temperature variations. The distant remnant W49B is only just resolved in the IPC observations, but additional observations with the High Resolution Imager (HRI) indicate a similar “infilled” morphology to IC443 and W44.
