In mountainous regions, climate warming is expected to shift species' ranges to higher altitudes. Evidence for such shifts is still mostly from revisitations of historical sites. We present recent (2001 to 2008) changes in vascular plant species richness observed in a standardized monitoring network across Europe's major mountain ranges. Species have moved(More)
The quantitative and systematic analysis of embryonic cell dynamics from in vivo 3D+time image data sets is a major challenge at the forefront of developmental biology. Despite recent breakthroughs in the microscopy imaging of living systems, producing an accurate cell lineage tree for any developing organism remains a difficult task. We present here the(More)
Pines, used for sand dune stabilization, can influence the hydrophysical parameters and water flow in an aeolian sandy soil considerably, mainly due to soil water repellency. Two sites, separated by distance of about 20 m, formed the basis of our study. A control soil (“Pure sand“) with limited impact of vegetation or organic matter was formed at 50 cm(More)
A fine-scaled approach for predicting soil acidity using plant species in a spatially limited area (Čepúšky Nature Reserve, Slovakia) is presented here. This approach copes with some specific limitations: i) a limited pool of vegetation data may make the predictions too sensitive to the lack of species information, and ii) the predictions may be sensitive(More)
OBJECTIVE Five different calliper methods for assessing the degree of carotid artery stenosis and visual estimation ("eyeballing") of postmortem carotid arteriograms were compared with the planimetric gold standard of the area reduction at the site of the stenosis. METHODS During autopsy 53 carotid specimens were removed in toto from 31 neurological(More)
We present a self-consistent electronic structure calculation method based on the Exact Muffin-Tin Orbitals (EMTO) Theory developed by O. K. Andersen, O. Jepsen and G. Krier (in Lectures on Methods of Electronic Structure Calculations, Ed. by V. Kumar, O.K. Andersen, A. Mookerjee, Word Scientific, 1994 pp. 63-124) and O. K. Andersen, C. Arcangeli, R. W.(More)
Ellenberg’s indicator values have been suggested as useful method of estimating site conditions using plants. We examined whether Ellenberg’s R values are suitable for indicating soil reaction and if calibration to physical pH measurements can improve bioindication in oligotrophic and mesotrophic submontane broad-leaved forests in Slovakia. Vegetation(More)
First-principles phase diagrams of bismuth-stabilized GaAs- and InP(100) surfaces demonstrate for the first time the presence of anomalous (2x1) reconstructions, which disobey the common electron counting principle. Combining these theoretical results with our scanning-tunneling-microscopy and photoemission measurements, we identify novel (2x1) surface(More)
Lipid and apolipoprotein serum levels as a consequence of excessive nutrition in the overweight individuals with familial combined hyperlipidemia (FCHL) in comparison with the obese ones are studied only sporadically. In this study, the effect of overweight and obesity in subjects with FCHL on serum lipids and apolipoproteins was investigated. The(More)
Because of the increased electron density within the surface layer, metal surfaces are generally expected to have tensile surface stress. Here, using first-principles density functional calculations, we demonstrate that in magnetic 3d metals surface magnetism can alter this commonly accepted picture. We find that the thermodynamically stable surfaces of(More)
