Knowledge of mammalian diversity is still surprisingly disparate, both regionally and taxonomically. Here, we present a comprehensive assessment of the conservation status and distribution of the world's mammals. Data, compiled by 1700+ experts, cover all 5487 species, including marine mammals. Global macroecological patterns are very different for land and(More)

Using data for 25,780 species categorized on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List, we present an assessment of the status of the world's vertebrates. One-fifth of species are classified as Threatened, and we show that this figure is increasing: On average, 52 species of mammals, birds, and amphibians move one category closer to(More)
A method is presented for automatic analysis of the P-wave, based on lead II of a 12-lead standard ECG, in resting conditions during a routine examination for the detection of patients prone to atrial fibrillation (AF), one of the most prevalent arrhythmias. First, the P-wave was delineated, and this was achieved in two steps: the detection of the QRS(More)

Improvement of left ventricular diastolic function after alcohol septal ablation for obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy? Yes, of course, We would like to thank Dr Veselka for his interest in our work and appreciate the opportunity(More)
Vasovagal syncope (VVS) is not known to occur in animals, although other similar reflex responses are common. This review examines the possible relation of these latter presumably protective reflexes in animals to VVS in humans. The goal is to provide practitioners, and ultimately their patients, a meaningful understanding of the origins and appropriate(More)
