This paper is a compilation of notes on 142 fungal taxa, including five new families, 20 new genera, and 100 new species, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range. The new families, Ascocylindricaceae, Caryosporaceae and Wicklowiaceae (Ascomycota) are introduced based on their distinct lineages and unique morphology. The new Dothideomycete genera(More)
—This letter presents the outage performance analysis for a cognitive relay network (CRN) with imperfect channel knowledge estimations. Under the condition of imperfect channel state information (CSI) estimations of interference links between primary and secondary systems, especially the links from both secondary transmitter and secondary relays to primary(More)
Modification of ZnS-capped CdSe quantum dot (QD) surfaces with polyelectrolyte coatings and subsequent layer-by-layer deposition to build hierarchical structures are presented. Mercaptoacetic acid (MAA)-treated QDs were sequentially coated with polyallylamine (PAA) and polyvinylsulfonic acid (PVSA) and analyzed using zeta potentials, absorbance spectra, and(More)
A novel actinomycete, designated strain NEAU-CY18T, was isolated from the root of a Chinese medicinal plant Dianthus chinensis L and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. The novel strain was found to develop spherical sporangia with non-motile spores on aerial mycelium. The cell-wall peptidoglycan was found to contain meso-diaminopimelic acid. The(More)
Seed heteromorphism provides plants with alternative strategies for survival in unfavourable environments. However, the response of descendants from heteromorphic seeds to stress has not been well documented. Suaeda aralocaspica is a typical annual halophyte, which produces heteromorphic seeds with disparate forms and different germination characteristics.(More)
Secondary inorganic aerosols (SIA) are the predominant components of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and have significant impacts on air quality, human health, and climate change. In this study, the Community Multiscale Air Quality modeling system (CMAQ) was modified to incorporate SO2 heterogeneous reactions on the surface of dust particles. The revised(More)
—In this paper, we present performance analysis for underlay cognitive decode-and-forward relay networks with the N th best relay selection scheme over Nakagami-m fading channels. Both the maximum tolerated interference power constraint and the maximum transmit power limit are considered. Specifically , exact and asymptotic closed-form expressions are(More)
