Comparative genomics - MIC - Multidrug resistance - Phenotype - Staphylococcus pseudintermedius

Staphylococcus pseudintermedius is an important pathogen in dogs. Since 2004, methicillin- resistant S. pseudintermedius (MRSP) isolates, often multidrug resistant, have been observed in dogs in the Netherlands. This study aims to link the observed resistance phenotypes in canine MRSP to genotypic antimicrobial resistance markers, and to study the phylogeny of MRSP by genomic comparisons. The genomes of fifty clinical isolates of MRSP from dogs from the Netherlands were sequenced. The resistance genes were identified, and for twenty one different antimicrobials their presence and sequence were associated with the resistance phenotypes. In case of observed discrepancies, the genes were aligned with reference genes. Of the phenotypic resistances, 98.3% could be explained by the presence of an associated resistance gene or point mutation. Discrepancies were mainly resistance genes present in susceptible isolates; 43.8% (7/16) were explained by an insertion, deletion or mutation in the gene. In relation with the resistance gene presence or absence, a single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) based phylogeny was constructed to define the population dynamics. The resistance gene content differed according to clonal complex, from very conserved (CC45), to partly conserved (CC71) to highly diverse (CC258) resistance gene patterns. In conclusion, this study shows that the antimicrobial genotype from whole genome sequencing is highly predictive of the resistance phenotype in MRSP. Interestingly, the observed clonal complexes of MRSP isolates were linked with resistance gene patterns

Eco-innovation for sustainable tourism transitions as a process of collaborative co-production: the case of a carbon management calculator for the Dutch travel industry
Buijtendijk, Harald ; Blom, Juultje ; Vermeer, Jorien ; Duim, V.R. van der - \ 2018
Journal of Sustainable Tourism 26 (2018)7. - ISSN 0966-9582 - p. 1222 - 1240.
Eco-innovations that reduce carbon emissions help advance sustainability
transitions in tourism. This article examines the analytical potential of actor-
network theory (ANT) to study eco-innovation. ANT assumes that reality
consists of actor-networks made of human and non-human elements that
perform actors as network effects. We argue that, in a time when climate
change is the simultaneous product and producer of human actions, eco-
innovation is better understood when research gives the human and non-
human elements that perform eco-innovations equal analytical treatment.
We therefore develop an ANT-inspired framework, which we apply in a
case study to investigate the development of a specific eco-innovation:
CARMACAL, a web-based carbon management application in the Dutch
travel industry. We find that technological novelty alone is insufficient to
instigate transition. CARMACAL affords multiple new practices with oppos-
ite implications for socio-economic and environmental sustainability. The
practices triggering most industry support are least effective in addressing
tourism's climate impacts and vice versa. Examining eco-innovation
through ANT helps us put eco-innovation in a different light. Seemingly
contradictory practices may be mutually supportive: their individual
strengths and weaknesses may help prevent the failure of eco-innovations.
This new possibility opens the way for concerted policies strengthening the
contribution of eco-innovations to sustainability transitions.

Homologous recombination between genetically divergent campylobacter fetus lineages supports host-associated speciation

Campylobacter fetus - Homologous recombination - Host association - Reptile - Speciation - Whole genome sequencing

Homologous recombination is a major driver of bacterial speciation. Genetic divergence and host association are important factors influencing homologous recombination. Here, we study these factors for Campylobacter fetus, which shows a distinct intraspecific host dichotomy. Campylobacter fetus subspecies fetus (Cff) and venerealis are associated with mammals, whereas C. fetus subsp. testudinum (Cft) is associated with reptiles. Recombination between these genetically divergent C. fetus lineages is extremely rare. Previously it was impossible to show whether this barrier to recombination was determined by the differential host preferences, by the genetic divergence between both lineages or by other factors influencing recombination, such as restriction-modification, CRISPR/Cas, and transformation systems. Fortuitously, a distinct C. fetus lineage (ST69) was found, which was highly related to mammal-associated C. fetus, yet isolated from a chelonian. The whole genome sequences of two C. fetus ST69 isolates were compared with those of mammal- and reptile-associated C. fetus strains for phylogenetic and recombination analysis. In total, 5.1-5.5% of the core genome of both ST69 isolates showed signs of recombination. Of the predicted recombination regions, 80.4% were most closely related to Cft, 14.3% to Cff, and 5.6% to C. iguaniorum. Recombination from C. fetus ST69 to Cft was also detected, but to a lesser extent and only in chelonian-associated Cft strains. This study shows that despite substantial genetic divergence no absolute barrier to homologous recombination exists between two distinct C. fetus lineages when occurring in the same host type, which provides valuable insights in bacterial speciation and evolution.

Campylobacter blaseri sp. Nov., isolated from common seals (Phoca vitulina)

Average nucleotide identity - Campylobacter - Common seal - Core genome phylogeny - Microbiome - Novel species
During a study to assess the faecal microbiome of common seals (Phoca vitulina) in a Dutch seal rehabilitation centre, 16S rRNA gene sequences of an unknown Campylobacter taxon were identified. Campylobacter isolates, which differed from the established Campylobacter taxa, were cultured and their taxonomic position was determined by a polyphasic study based on ten isolates. The isolates were characterized by 16S rRNA and atpA gene sequence analyses and by conventional phenotypic testing. Based on the whole genome sequences, the average nucleotide identity and core genome phylogeny were determined. The isolates formed a separate phylogenetic clade, divergent from all other Campylobacter taxa and most closely related to Campylobacter corcagiensis, Campylobacter geochelonis and Campylobacter ureolyticus. The isolates can be distinguished phenotypically from all other Campylobacter taxa based on their lack of motility, growth at 25 °C and growth on MacConkey agar. This study shows that these isolates represent a novel species within the genus Campylobacter, for which the name Campylobacter blaseri sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain for this novel species is 17S00004-5T (=LMG 30333T=CCUG 71276T).

Enactment - Female tourism entrepreneurs - Gender - Weick - Zanzibar
Although gender has become an established research topic in tourism studies over the last decades, the role of religion in relation to women participating in tourism has been less explored. Moreover, gender has been mainly discussed from a Western perspective, while other viewpoints have received little attention. By focusing on women participating in the tourism industry in Zanzibar we make a contribution to both voids in tourism studies. This article provides an account of how Zanzibari women working in tourism are confronted with particular constraints brought about by the Islamization of Swahili culture. Moreover, it is argued that whereas women find themselves bound up by particular Islamic norms and values, they are able through the enactment of their environments to challenge, negotiate, and resist these. In so doing they create the freedom to make their own choices, which, as will be shown, reach beyond their labor position. The research findings are discussed in terms of the concept of enactment as proposed by Weick in 1995 and explore the ability of women to participate in the construction of their own environment. The article concludes by arguing that women enact their environments in diverse ways, and how these environments are understood by them as either constraining or enabling them in taking over agency over their lives.

Co-Creating Tourism Research : Towards Collaborative Ways of Knowing
Ren, Carina ; Jóhannesson, Gunnar Thór ; Duim, V.R. van der - \ 2018
Routledge - ISBN 9781138228191 - 188 p.
Co-creation has become a buzzword in many social science disciplines, in business and in tourism studies. Given the prominence of co-creation, surprisingly little discussion has evolved around its implications for research practices and knowledge production as well as what challenges there are for fulfilling the promise of co-creation in tourism research.
This book aims to contribute to this discussion by addressing how tourism research comes together as a collaborative achievement and by exploring different ways of collaborative knowledge production in tourism research. It is structured to offer, on one hand, an introduction to the ontological basis for collaborative research and, on the other hand, a set of empirical examples of how collaborative knowledge creation can inform tourism design, management, policy and education.
The theoretical accounts and empirical cases of this book display how research collaborations can offer modest, local yet often impactful insights, traces and effects. It therefore will be of value for students, researchers and academics in tourism studies as well as the wider social sciences.
Co-creation of tourism knowledge

Co-creation has become a buzzword in many social science disciplines and business studies as well as in the field of tourism studies. Everybody is supposed to work together to create ‘more value’, ‘better experiences’ and to enhance knowledge transfer. While no exact or clear-cut definition exists of co-creation, it often refers to ways in which producers and consumers of a particular product or service jointly produce it partly or in whole. In the private sector, it denotes a shift in the organization of production where consumers or users are enabled or encouraged to participate in the making of a product or experience as in the case of tourism. In design studies it has been used in a similar sense to reflect on and work with the relation between designers and end users (Sanders & Stappers, 2008; see also Chapter 6).

S. pseudintermedius - SCCmec variants - Sri Lanka - ΨSCCmec
The presence and genetic characteristics of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius (MRSP) in Sri Lanka was investigated to add additional insight into global spread, emergence and evolution of MRSP. A total of 234 samples from dogs visiting veterinary clinics were cultured for staphylococci and the genomes of the MRSP isolates were sequenced, to identify resistance genes, the multilocus sequence types (MLST) and spa types. From a questionnaire the history of antimicrobial treatment and patient information was obtained. S. pseudintermedius was isolated from 116/229 samples, eight of these were MRSP. Six MRSP CC45 isolates contained a pseudo-SCC element ΨSCCmec57395. Two isolates belonging to ST429 (CC761) and ST121 (CC121) contained novel variants of the SCCmec Type V(T) element. The elements were designated SCCmecV(T)SL/066, that carried additional transposon-related genes, and SCCmecV(T)SL/154 that carried a type III restriction-modification system, a type 7 ccr gene complex, and a cadA coding sequence. Thirty-seven percent of the dogs received antimicrobial treatment at the time of sampling of which four dogs were MRSP-positive. The proportion of MRSP among S. pseudintermedius is low compared to other countries, despite the fact that in Sri Lanka antimicrobials for treatment of dogs are available over the counter. Important is the finding of novel type V(T) SCCmec elements, which further underlines the high recombination frequency of SCC elements. The ΨSCCmec57395 was found in isolates of CC45, which is the only sequence type of MRSP known to contain this pseudo-cassette.
The battle over the benefits: analysing two sport hunting policy arrangements in Uganda
Ochieng, A. ; Visseren-Hamakers, I.J. ; Duim, V.R. van der - \ 2018

In 2001 sport hunting was reintroduced in Uganda around Lake Mburo National Park, and in 2008 at Kabwoya and Kaiso-Tonya Game Management Area, to derive economic benefits for communities and thus reduce human–wildlife conflict and change communities’ attitudes towards wildlife. We used the policy arrangement approach to analyse and compare the development of the two sport hunting policy arrangements. Through interviews and document review we learned that the arrangement at Lake Mburo changed considerably over time, whereas that at Kabwoya remained relatively stable. The two policy arrangements started with small constellations of actors but turned out to be complex arenas, mainly involving disagreement regarding the benefits. Land ownership proved to be a crucial factor in explaining the differences between the arrangements. Our results also show that benefits do not change communities’ attitudes towards conservation, thus questioning incentive-based policies for conservation. We argue for a careful analysis of the complex social, cultural and political contexts in which conservation and development policies are implemented, to better understand their outcomes.
Floating markets in Thailand: same, same, but different
Pongajarn, C. ; Duim, V.R. van der; Peters, K.B.M. - \ 2018
Journal of Tourism and Cultural Change 16 (2018)2. - ISSN 1476-6825 - p. 109 - 122.
In the last 60 years floating markets in Thailand, traditionally serving as central places for trade and exchange of agricultural products, have disappeared, were displaced or reappeared as tourism destinations. By making use of insights from actor-network theory, this study shows how floating markets in Thailand reorganize people, canals, boats, homes, fruits, vegetables and souvenirs in certain and multiple ways. Our comparison of five floating markets (Damnernsaduak, Thaka, Amphawa, Bang Namphueng and Pattaya) illustrates that floating markets in Thailand differ in terms of actors, buyers and vendors, products and objects, time and space. They sustained over time because they were able to adapt to new circumstances.
