This document describes the use of aerial photography and airborne LiDAR to estimate individual tree heights in forest stands. The advantages and disadvantages in the use of LiDAR systems are revised and a data fusion analysis with digital aerial photography is proposed. The work shows an example of these techniques in a forested area in Scotland. An(More)
Expression of the bacteriophage lambda two-codon, AUG AUA, barI minigene (bar+) leads to the arrest of protein synthesis in cells defective in peptidyl-tRNA hydrolase (Pth). It has been hypothesized that translation of the bar+ transcript provokes premature release and accumulation of peptidyl-tRNA (p-tRNA). Inhibition of protein synthesis would then result(More)
Escherichia coli mutants defective in peptidyl-tRNA hydrolase activity are unable to maintain bacteriophage lambda vegetative growth. Phage mutants, named bar, overcome the host limitation to support viral growth. Multicopy expression of lambda wild-type bar regions is deleterious to hydrolase-defective cells because it provokes arrest of protein synthesis.(More)
Bacteriophage lambda is unable to grow vegetatively on Escherichia coli mutants defective in peptidyl-tRNA hydrolase (Pth) activity. Mutations which allow phage growth on the defective host have been located at regions named bar in the lambda genome. Expression of wild-type bar regions from plasmid constructs results in inhibition of protein synthesis and(More)
Peptidyl-tRNA hydrolase (Pth), an enzyme essential for Escherichia coli viability, scavenges peptidyl-tRNA released during abortive polypeptide chain elongation. Bacterial strains of E coli partially defective in Pth activity are unable to maintain bacteriophage lambda growth. Phage mutations that overcome the bacterial defect have been located to several(More)
