One of the goals of plant breeding is to increase yield with improved quality characters. Plant introductions (PI) are a rich source of favorable alleles that could improve different characters in modern soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merril] including yield. The objectives of this study were to identify yield QTL underlying the genetic basis for differential(More)
A linear, amphoteric poly(amidoamine) nicknamed AGMA1, based on 4-aminobutylguanidine, or agmatine, was successfully prepared by Michael-type polyaddition of monoprotonated agmatine and 2,2-bis(acrylamido)acetic acid (BAC). Copolymers between AGMA1 and the biocompatible poly(amidoamine) ISA23 (deriving from the polyaddition of 2-methylpiperazine with BAC)(More)
The spatial distribution of landslides is influenced by different climatic conditions and environmental settings including topography, morphology, hydrology, lithology, and land use. In this work, we have attempted to evaluate the influence of land use change on landslide susceptibility (LS) for a small study area located in the southern part of the Briga(More)
This study focuses on the role of wind exposure and storm events, in interaction with trophic status and temperature, on the competition between two species: Microcystis aeruginosa and a typical green alga. It is based on a water column model containing ecological and fluid mechanic features including mixing and shear stress at the bottom. This model(More)
The proton stopping power of liquid water was, for the first time, measured in the energy range 4.7-15.2 MeV. The proton energies were determined by the time-of-flight transmission technique with the microchannel plate detectors, which were especially developed for timing applications. The results are compared to the literature values (from ICRU Report 49(More)
SIRIO is one of the three Operations Studies included in the framework of the ESA Iris Programme, which aims to design and develop a new Satellite Communication system for Air Traffic Management. SIRIO focus is on the definition of a Service Model and Business Model for the provision of ATS and AOC communication services via satellite. The definition(More)
GaN nanowires with diameters ranging between 50 and 500 nm were investigated by electrical and photoinduced current techniques to determine the influence of their size on the opto-electronic behavior of nanodevices. The conductivity, photoconductivity, and persistent photoconductivity behavior of GaN nanowires are observed to strongly depend on the wire(More)
Ar-BIANH2 bearing different substituents on the aryl rings have been synthesized in high yield by reduction of the corresponding bis(aryl)acenaphthenequinonediimine (Ar-BIAN) compounds. The structure of p-CH3 C6 H4 -BIANH2 in the solid state was determined by X-ray diffraction. An exhaustive voltammetric investigation of the two parallel BIAN and BIANH2(More)
