(ii) that the ratio of aboveground biomass to root biomass is 3 :1 {the average value of three studies in Brazilian Amazonia [P. Fearnside, Emissão e Sequestro de CO 2 (Companha Vale do Rio Doce, Rio de Janeiro, 1994), pp. 95–124]}, consistent with a global analysis of root biomass allocation [M. A.logia 111, 1 (1997)]; and (iii) that root biomass increased(More)
Cohen (1988; Cohen & Younger, 1984) has suggested that there is a shift in the perception of form sometime after 6 weeks of age. Prior to this age infants can remember the specific orientations of line segments, but cannot process and remember the angular relations that line segments can make. Experiment 1 used simple line stimuli with newborn infants to(More)
An experiment is described in which newborn infants' processing of stimulus compounds was investigated. After familiarization to two alternately presented stimuli which differed in colour and orientation, the newborns showed significant preferences for a stimulus which had a novel colour/orientation combination: the novel stimulus was produced by(More)

The quasi-persistent neutron star X-ray transient and eclipsing binary EXO 0748−676 recently started the transition to quiescence following an accretion outburst that lasted more than 24 years. We report on two Chandra and 12 Swift observations performed within five months after the end of the outburst. The Chandra spectrum is composed of a soft, thermal(More)
The recently conceived Matrix-Exponential distribution is dense in the set of all real, continuous, nondecreasing functions whose domain is in the half-open interval [0,-). To define a distribution function, only two parameters am tequirad: (1) a vector p and (2) a matrix B. The singular form of the function permit applications that use a diverse set of(More)
