Red squirrels are declining in the United Kingdom. Competition from, and squirrel poxvirus (SQPV) disease carried by, grey squirrels are assumed to be determining the decline. We analyse the incidence of disease and changes in distribution of the two species in Cumbria, from 1993 to 2003 and compare these to the predictions of an individual-based (IB)(More)
With the advent of the Microsoft Kinect, renewed focus has been put on monocular depth-based motion capturing. However, this approach is limited in that an actor has to move facing the camera. Due to the active light nature of the sensor, no more than one device has been used for motion capturing so far. In effect, any pose estimation must fail for poses(More)
This study reports carbon and water fluxes between the land surface and atmosphere in eleven different ecosystems types in Sub-Saharan Africa, as measured using eddy covariance (EC) technology in the first two years of the CarboAfrica network operation. The ecosystems for which data were available ranged in mean annual rainfall from 5 320 mm (Sudan) to 1150(More)
Land use specific deposition velocities of atmospheric trace gases and aerosols-particularly of reactive nitrogen compounds-are a fundamental input variable for a variety of deposition models. Although the concept is known to have shortcomings-especially with regard to bi-directional exchange-the often limited availability of concentration data and(More)
We applied a (15)N dilution technique called "Integrated Total Nitrogen Input" (ITNI) to quantify annual atmospheric N input into a peatland surrounded by intensive agricultural practices over a 2-year period. Grass species and grass growth effects on atmospheric N deposition were investigated using Lolium multiflorum and Eriophorum vaginatum and different(More)
ii Eidesstattliche Erklärung Hiermit erkläre ich an Eides statt, dass ich die vorliegende Arbeit selbständig verfasst und keine anderen als die angegebenen Hilfsmittel verwendet habe. Abstract Motion Capturing provides the possibility to transfer human motions to a computer related format. The recorded animation data can be processed by a computer, be(More)
