genetic factors underlying common disease are largely unknown. Discovery of disease-causing genes will transform our knowledge of the genetic contribution to human disease, lead to new genetic screens, and underpin research into new cures and improved lifestyles. The se-quencing of the human genome has catalyzed efforts to search for disease genes by the(More)
Atmospheric aerosols scatter and potentially absorb incoming solar radiation, thereby reducing the total amount of radiation reaching the surface and increasing the fraction that is diffuse. The partitioning of incoming energy at the surface into sensible heat flux and latent heat flux is postulated to change with increasing aerosol concentrations, as an(More)
Variations in larval instar number are common among arthropods. Here, we assess the implications of temperature-mediated variations in larval instar number for larval development time, larval growth rates, and juvenile dry weight within the palaemonid shrimp, Palaemonetes varians. In contrast with previous literature, which focuses on terrestrial(More)
The VALIDATE project, with 19 partners in nine European countries, started work in late 1995 to verify the DVB standard for digital terrestrial TV broadcasting and to prepare for the launch of services. The work of the Project verified the DVB-T specification, ensuring its acceptance by ETSI, and is now facilitating the early introduction of services. The(More)
Range shifts are of great importance as a response for species facing climate change. In the light of current ocean-surface warming, many studies have focused on the capacity of marine ectotherms to shift their ranges latitudinally. Bathymetric range shifts offer an important alternative, and may be the sole option for species already at high latitudes or(More)
Smulyan, and that in my opinion this work meets the criteria for approving a thesis submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree: This research study evaluates the sustainability of the Capistrano Bridge Fish Passage Restoration Project completed in 2005. The conceptual approach was a direct comparison over time of physical(More)
