Maize (Zea mays L.) releases specific volatiles in response to herbivory by caterpillars. These volatiles are known to serve as cues for parasitic wasps to locate the herbivores. In the present study the exact time of volatile emission after simulated herbivory (mechanical damage and treatment with caterpillar regurgitant) was measured for seedlings of the(More)
In addition to inhibiting the formation of angiotensin II, chronic converting enzyme inhibition may affect other blood pressure modulating factors. The influence of an 8 week treatment phase with cilazapril on the activity of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone and sympathetic nervous systems, the pressor reactivity to infused angiotensin II or(More)
Plastics manufacturing is an interdisciplinary endeavor crossing chemical, mechanical, and electrical engineering as well as other fields. In this paper, a systems approach is described for the decomposition and development of a plastics manufacturing system. The case study involves the design, implementation, and validation of a thermal imprint lithography(More)
