Carbon assimilation by Cedrela odorata L. (Meliaceae) seedlings was investigated in ambient and elevated CO2 concentrations ([CO2]) for 119 days, using small fumigation chambers. A solution containing macro- and micronutrients was supplied at two rates. The 5% rate (high rate) was designed to avoid nutrient limitation and allow a maximum rate of growth. The(More)
This article documents the addition of 228 microsatellite marker loci to the Molecular Ecology Resources Database. Loci were developed for the following species: Anser cygnoides, Apodemus flavicollis, Athene noctua, Cercis canadensis, Glis glis, Gubernatrix cristata, Haliotis tuberculata, Helianthus maximiliani, Laricobius nigrinus, Laricobius rubidus,(More)
We examined the interactive effects of elevated CO2 concentration ([CO2]) and water stress on growth and physiology of 1-year-old peach (Prunus persica L.) seedlings grown in 10-dm3 pots in open-top chambers with ambient (350 micromol mol-1) or elevated (700 micromol mol-1) [CO2]. Seedlings were supplied weekly with a non-limiting nutrient solution. Water(More)
A model was developed that simulated photosynthesis, growth and allocation in tree seedlings. The model was parameterized with data from experiments on seedlings of sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus L.), Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis (Bong) Carr.) and young birch trees (Betula pendula Roth.). In these experiments, CO2 concentration ([CO2]) and nutrient(More)
Ignoring the indirect effects of vaccination has led to two types of inaccuracies in cholera vaccine policy analysis in endemic settings. First, when herd protection is ignored, the social benefits and cost-effectiveness of vaccination programs are underestimated, such that the programs are rarely considered to be a wise use of scarce public health(More)
A new fluorescent probe, 6,7-(4-methyl)coumaro-[2.2.2] cryptand, has been developed for measuring K+. This compound was made by fusing [2.2.2] cryptand with 4-methylcoumarin through 2 ethoxy bridges at the 6 and 7 positions. The probe has a fluorescent excitation peak at 340 nm and an emission peak at 420 nm. In aqueous solutions, increasing the K+(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a highly variable and unpredictable disease and is considered one of the most life-altering diagnoses a person can receive (Holland and Madonna, 2005). The hallmark of this disorder is its unpredictability. This article explores the journey one individual (ML) takes from the time that seemingly trivial symptoms took on a new and(More)
