—This paper describes a hierarchical approach to spatial forest planning developed by Remsoft that can be used to create harvest blocks that meet maximum opening, green-up, and other constraints. The approach relies heavily on decisions and trade-offs made during long-term strategic analysis to simplify the blocking phase and to ensure that the harvest(More)
BACKGROUND In marine mussels of the genus Mytilus there are two mitochondrial genomes. One is transmitted through the female parent, which is the normal transmission route in animals, and the other is transmitted through the male parent which is an unusual phenomenon. In males the germ cell line is dominated by the paternal mitochondrial genome and the(More)
Major histocompatibility class I (MHC-I)-specific inhibitory receptors on natural killer (NK) cells (iNKRs) tolerize mature NK cell responses toward normal cells. NK cells generate cytolytic responses to virus-infected or malignant target cells with altered or decreased MHC-I surface expression due to the loss of tolerizing ligands. The NKG2A/CD94 iNKR(More)
Spatial harvest scheduling at the forest level is a daunting task. Apart from the sheer amount of data involved and the lingering effect of past activities, the problem is distinguished by contrasting temporal (long-versus near-term) and spatial (forest versus stand) scales and complicated by often disparate planning objectives at each level of planning.(More)
