Benzoxazinones 2,4-dihydroxy-7-methoxy-(2H)-1,4-benzoxazin-3(4H)-one (DIMBOA) and 2,4-dihydroxy-(2H)-1,4-benzoxazin-3(4H)-one (DIBOA) have been considered key compounds for understanding allelopathic phenomena in Gramineae crop plants such as corn (Zea mays L.), wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), and rye (Secale cereale L.). The degradation processes in the(More)
The Horizontal Fragmentation (HF) is a process for reducing the number of disk access to execute a query by reducing the number of irrelevant objects accessed. In this paper, we present horizontal fragmentation based on a set of queries, and develop strategies for two versions of HF: primary and derived. Primary horizontal fragmentation of a class is(More)
Horizontal partitioning is a logical database design technique which facilitates efficient execution of queries by reducing the irrelevant objects accessed. Given a set of most frequently executed queries on a class, the horizontal partitioning generates horizontal class fragments (each of which is a subset of object instances of the class), that meet the(More)
This paper deals with the problem of missing values in decision trees during classification. Our approach is derived from the ordered attribute trees method, proposed by Lobo and Numao in 2000, which builds a decision tree for each attribute and uses these trees to fill the missing attribute values. Our method takes into account the dependence between(More)
Benzoxazinoids have been described as important allelochemicals from Gramineae as well as Acanthaceae, Rannunculaceae, and Scrophulariaceae plants. Several bioactivities have been described and evaluated for these compounds, including fungistatic, antifeedant, and phytotoxic. In ongoing studies about allelochemicals as natural herbicide models, the(More)
Description logics have powerful deductive capabilities but rely on a weakly structured model. Databases provide storage optimization and offer better structuring capacities, especially within the object-oriented paradigm. We propose a model which offers the deductive capabilities of description logics and the structuring possibilities of the object(More)
