Glycosphingolipids were isolated from primary cultures of porcine endothelial cells labelled with 14C-galactose or 14C-glucosamine. They were characterized by their mobility on thin layer chromatogram, their sensitivity to exoglycosidases, and their labelling with antibodies. In addition to the major glycosphingolipids, globotetra- and(More)
We investigate in this paper a scalar reaction diffusion equation with a nonlinear reaction term depending on x − ct. Here, c is a prescribed parameter modeling the speed of a climate change and we wonder whether a population will survive or not, that is, we want to determine the large-time behavior of the associated solution. This problem has been solved(More)
Climate change impacts population distributions, forcing some species to migrate poleward if they are to survive and keep up with the suitable habitat that is shifting with the temperature isoclines. Previous studies have analysed whether populations have the capacity to keep up with shifting temperature isoclines, and have mathematically determined the(More)
In this paper we consider a bistable reaction-diffusion equation in unbounded domains and we investigate the existence of propagation phenomena, possibly partial, in some direction or, on the contrary, of blocking phenomena. We start by proving the well-posedness of the problem. Then we prove that when the domain has a decreasing cross section with respect(More)
Empirical evidence suggests that co-flowering species can facilitate each other through shared pollinators. However, the extent to which one co-flowering species can relieve pollination limitation of another while simultaneously competing for abiotic resource has rarely been examined. Using a deterministic model we explored the demographic outcome for one(More)
Small populations of plant species can be susceptible to demographic Allee effects mainly due to pollen limitation. Although sympatry with a common, co-flowering species may somewhat alleviate the problem of pollinator visitation (pollination quantity), the interspecific pollen transfer, IPT, (pollination quality) may remain a barrier to reproduction in(More)
