Studies on animal space use can reveal insights into how animals interact with one another and their environment. Research on the space use patterns of the endangered giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) in China has nevertheless lagged behind that of many other species, as a government moratorium prevented telemetry data collection on pandas from 1995 to(More)
Animals make choices about where to spend their time in complex and dynamic landscapes, choices that reveal information about their biology that in turn can be used to guide their conservation. Using GPS collars, we conducted a novel individual-based analysis of habitat use and selection by the elusive and endangered giant pandas (Ailuropoda melanoleuca).(More)
BACKGROUND Postprandial accumulation of gastric secretions in the proximal stomach above the meal adjacent to the esophagogastric junction (EGJ), referred to as the 'acid pocket', has been proposed as a pathophysiological factor in gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) and as a target for GERD treatment. This study assessed the effect of proton pump(More)
In this paper, we propose a framework to transmit uncoded video over wireless multiuser networks. The framework explores the scalability of uncoded video transmission to achieve the optimal resource allocation. Compared with the traditional allocation, our method well consider the diversity of video and channel condition, by allocating the power and(More)
it is an important direction increasing emotional recognition in the network system. This paper uses the improved Adaboost algorithm based on front-end color optimization to detect face and locate eye and mouth positions, adopts the deformable template matching method to extract eye spacing and uses the method based on lip color model to extract mouth(More)
