BACKGROUND AND AIMS Wood density is a key variable for understanding life history strategies in tropical trees. Differences in wood density and its radial variation were related to the shade-tolerance of six canopy tree species in seasonally dry tropical forest in Thailand. In addition, using tree ring measurements, the influence of tree size, age and(More)
In this paper we present a natural feature tracking algorithm based on on-line boosting used for localizing a mobile computer. Mobile augmented reality requires highly accurate and fast six degrees of freedom tracking in order to provide registered graphical overlays to a mobile user. With advances in mobile computer hardware, vision-based tracking(More)
A network of 41 local tree-ring chronologies of oak (Quercus petraea and Quercus robur) in Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia (latitudes 45.00–48.00N, longitudes 13.14–21.63E, altitudes 80–800 m a.s.l.) was constructed and used to establish common climatic signals in oak tree rings in the region. Co-variation of residual chronologies could be(More)
Understanding drought sensitivity of tree species and its intra-specific variation is required to estimate the effects of climate change on forest productivity, carbon sequestration and tree mortality as well as to develop adaptive forest management measures. Here, we studied the variation of drought reaction of six European Abies species and ten(More)
Tree rings are natural archives of climate and environmental information with a yearly resolution. Indeed, wood anatomical, chemical, and other properties of tree rings are a synthesis of several intrinsic and external factors, and their interaction during tree growth. In particular, Intra-Annual Density Fluctuations (IADFs) can be considered as tree-ring(More)
— In this paper we present the building blocks of our semi-automatic annotation tool which supports multi-modal and multi-level annotation of a meeting database. The main focus is on the proper design and functionality of the modules for recognizing meeting actions. The key features, identity and position of the speakers, are provided by different audio and(More)
