Mental rotation tests require participants to identify rotated versions of a target stimulus. The Vandenberg Mental Rotations Test depicts rotations in 3-D space and typically yields one of the largest established cognitive sex differences favoring males. It is presently unclear whether this male advantage is related to the nature of rotations depicted in(More)
Identification of the juveniles of economically important thrips species on imports by morphology alone can be challenging and culturing is usually required. In the case of EU quarantine species such as Thrips palmi, rapid and accurate identification is essential. DNA barcoding using the Cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene has become a popular technique for(More)
This paper describes relationships between the Open Archival Information System Reference Model (OAIS RM) and the archival practices of the NOAA National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The OAIS RM defines a thorough approach to defining the processes, entities, and framework for maintaining digital information in an electronic archival environment(More)
A tunable optical filter is described for removing undesired emissions from laser beams for use in resonance Raman and fluorescence spectroscopy. The bandpass is 1 nm, and the filter is tunable from 400 nm to 750 nm. The degree of polarization of the dye laser beam is improved by the filter. Two independent controls tune the filter to the selected(More)
