We evaluated the impacts of climate change on the productivity and health of a forest in the mixed-conifer region in California. We adapted an industry-standard planning tool to forecast 30-years of growth for forest stands under a changing climate. Four projections of future climate (two global climate models and two emission forecasts) were examined for(More)
This paper presents preliminary efforts by agencies managing California’s water resources to incorporate climate change research into their planning and management tools. Projected increases in air temperature may lead to changes in the precipitation patterns, runoff timing and volume, sea level rise, and changes in the amount of irrigation water needed due(More)
A case of lymphocytic lymphoma of the small intestine was associated with cryoglobulinemia and amyloidosis. The neoplastic lymphoid cell demonstrated surface IgG membrane markers by immunofluorescence and immunoelectron microscopy. The cryoglobulins were characterized as monoclonal IgG3 proteins with lambda light chains. Amyloidosis of the small intestine(More)
Sarawak, on the island of Borneo, is known internationally for its rich rain forests, flora and fauna. Its rain forests, occupying two-thirds of its geographical area shelters 2500 tree species, 5500 flowering plants and over 20 000 different kinds of animals and insects. Such abundance of plants, and in particular, in the variety thereof, have attracted(More)
A case of multiple myeloma producing IgD-M component with light chains of lambda type is reported. It involved the skeleton and was complicated by compression of the spinal cord and massive extension to the pleura. The urine contained lambda Bence Jones protein. Under the electron microscope, the neoplastic plasma cells showed dissociation between nuclear(More)
