Nucleotide diversity was assessed within nine candidate genes (CGs) (in total 4.6 kb) for the time of bud burst in nine sessile oak (Quercus petraea) populations distributed in central and northern Europe. The sampled populations were selected on the basis of their contrasting times of bud burst observed in common garden experiments (provenance tests). The(More)
Very little is known about the nature and strength of reproductive isolation (RI) in Quercus species, despite extensive research on the estimation and evolutionary significance of hybridization rates. We characterized postmating pre- and postzygotic RI between two hybridizing oak species, Quercus robur and Quercus petraea, using a large set of controlled(More)

In a full-arch implant rehabilitation ad modum Branemark, the distribution of stress and strain in mandibular bone is influenced by the type, number and position of implants used. In particular, the biomechanical behaviour of the bone structure after complete osseointegration depends on the load transferred to the bone by each fixture. In this study, a(More)
INTRODUCTION The tribological behaviour of Metal-on-Metal (MoM) hip prostheses is a key factor for their success. In particular, wear is recognized to have a crucial role in the failure of a prosthesis and can have severe consequences on the patient’s health, e.g. pseudo-tumors in MoM implants, [1,2]. The lubrication of the coupling between the prosthetic(More)
