Participatory approaches to development in general and natural resource management in particular are now a widely accepted management strategy. Multi-agent system (MAS), a computer-based tool, offers a promising approach for multi-stakeholder management systems such as the case involving community-managed resources. MAS provides a framework where(More)
Different types of models have been developed and applied to address various problems and issues in forestry. This paper reviews modelling trends in four areas, namely, forest management planning and decision-making, forest dynamics and growth projection, forest landscape and spatial models and participatory forest management models. The first type includes(More)
In this work, we report the partial sequence of a 51 kDa protein of Entamoeba histolytica that is highly immunogenic in humans. Partial sequencing of the N-terminal end showed that 18 of the first 20 amino acid residues of the protein were identified uniquely, indicating that the final product was a homogeneous protein preparation. The N-terminal sequence(More)
Digital Forestry has been proposed as " the science, technology, and art of systematically acquiring, integrating, analyzing, and applying digital information to support sustainable forests. " Although rooted in traditional forestry disciplines, Digital Forestry draws from a host of other fields that, in the past few decades, have become important for(More)
Statement of the problem: Increasing value is being placed on services provided by watershed ecosystems. However, these services are often poorly defined and inadequately assessed, which impedes the development of market and institutional arrangements needed to pay for watershed conservation, so as to insure their continued provision. Given the inherent(More)
BACKGROUND Fusarium moniliforme is a phytopathogenic facultative fungus with a cosmopolitan distribution in all types of climates, and has a wide host range, including, among others, bean, rice, wheat and sorghum crops. There is a current lack of knowledge regarding the potential of these fungi, so it is considered to be of great importance to obtain(More)
The Taenia crassiceps ORF strain is used to generate a murine model of cysticercosis, which is used for diagnosis, evaluation of drugs, and vaccination. This particular strain only exists as cysticerci, is easily maintained under in vivo and in vitro conditions, and offers an excellent model for studying the cytoskeletons of cestodes. In this study, several(More)
