Arg-Gly-Asp peptides (RGD) were synthesized and chemically coupled to the bulk of N-(2-hydroxypropyl) methacrylamide-based polymer hydrogels. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and amino acid analysis confirmed the peptide coupling to the polymer. Activated and control (unmodified) polymer matrices were stereotaxically implanted in the striata(More)
Dense ungulate populations, both domestic and wild, accompanied by high grazing intensities, are known to have effects on the abundance and diversity of the community of arthropods hosted by plants. However, research combining ungulate herbivory with nutrient addition effects is scarce. By means of a nitrogen (N) addition and clipping experiment, we(More)
