The Mesoamerican (MA) gene pool of lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus L.) is widely distributed from northern Mexico to northern Argentina in its wild forms and from the southern United States to the east coast of Brazil in its domesticated forms. This broad distribution and lack of wild accessions of the MA gene pool in many areas of its natural distribution has(More)
Triggered by the demand of ubiquitous Internet connectivity and the availability of different wireless technologies, several IP mobility support protocols have been standardized in the past. Each solution provides a specific functionality (e.g., host or network mobility) and/or requires operations of particular nodes (e.g., client or network based). The(More)
Nobody has doubts about the Virtual Environments as a tool with a future: their possible applications are huge and they are very attractive for users. However, the lack of believability of virtual characters leads the users to get bored of these Virtual Environments or, at least, to lose the impression of being interacting with other real users, instead of(More)
This poster presents the key ideas behind the ICT CROWD (Connectivity management for eneRgy Optimised Wireless Dense networks) project, funded by the European Commission. The project moves from the observation that wireless traffic demand is currently growing exponentially. This growing demand can only be satisfied by increasing the density of points of(More)
Opportunistic Routing (OR) takes advantage of the broadcast nature of the wireless medium to increase reliability in communications. Instead of selecting one node as the next-hop forwarder, OR selects a set of candidates to forward the packet. In this way, if one of them does not receive the packet from the source, another candidate will be able to do it,(More)
—The significant growth in mobile data traffic and the ever-increasing user's demand for high-speed, always connected networks continue challenging network providers and lead research towards solutions to enable faster, scalable and more flexible networks. In this paper we present the CROWD approach , a networking framework providing mechanisms to tackle(More)
The genetic diversity and population structure of Lippia origanoides, a species of the Verbenaceae family that shows promise as a crop plant, was investigated along an altitudinal gradient in the basin of the Chicamocha River in northeastern Colombia. The economic importance of the species, quality of its essential oils, and the fact that it is restricted(More)
