In this paper, a new wavelet-domain codebook design algorithm is proposed for image coding. The method utilizes mean-squared error and variance based selection schemes for good clustering of data vectors in the training space. As the clustering process terminates only in two steps, it is highly computationally efficient as compared to other reported(More)
Dinitrogen (N2)-fixation by cyanobacteria living in symbiosis with pleurocarpous feather mosses (for example, Pleurozium schreberi and Hylocomium splendens) represents the main pathway of biological N input into N-depleted boreal forests. Little is known about the role of the cyanobacterial community in contributing to the observed temporal variability of(More)
Steroidal glycoalkaloids (SGA) are toxic secondary metabolites naturally occurring in the potato, as well as in certain other Solanaceous plant species, such as tomato, eggplant and pepper. To investigate the steroidal origin of SGA biosynthesis, cut potato shoots were fed cholesterol labelled with deuterium (D) in the sterol ring structure (D5- or(More)
