Mixing of complementary tree species may increase stand productivity, mitigate the effects of drought and other risks, and pave the way to forest production systems which may be more resource-use efficient and stable in the face of climate change. However, systematic empirical studies on mixing effects are still missing for many commercially important and(More)
One of the characteristics of the blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) response to functional challenges of the brain is the poststimulation undershoot, which has been suggested to originate from a delayed recovery of either cerebral blood volume (CBV) or cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen to baseline.

Ligament graft fixation with bioabsorbable interference screws is a standard procedure in cruciate ligament replacement. Previous screw designs may resorb incompletely, and can cause osteolysis and sterile cysts despite being implanted for several years. The aim of this study was to examine the in vivo degradation and biocompatibility of the new Milagro(More)
Root trenching of Norway spruce and European beech caused no long-term decrease of stem growth and only temporal growth reductions in European beech. Root volume reduction is a common occurrence in silvicultural, urban, and scientific environments, often the direct result of trenching applications. Although this interference is widespread near forest roads(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND The autosomal dominant tumor syndrome tuberous sclerosis complex is caused by the mutated TSC1 gene, hamartin, and the TSC2 gene, tuberin. Patients with this complex develop typical cutaneus symptoms such as peau chagrin or angiofibromas of the skin as well as other lesions such as astrocytomas in the brain and(More)
