State-of-the-art solutions, using object appearance based models, already reached certain maturity. They achieve excellent recognition performance and provide(More)
Dental panoramic X-ray images are images having complex content, because several layers of tissue, bone, fat, etc. are superimposed. Nonuniform illumination, stemming from the X-ray source, gives extra modulation to the image, which causes spatially varying X-ray photon density.

In most forested landscapes, the organization of plant communities across stream valleys is thought to be regulated by a complex set of interactions including flooding, landform properties, and vegetation. However, few studies have directly examined the relative influence of frequent and infrequent flooding, as well as landform properties, on riparian plant(More)
Fire-adapted forests of the Lake States region are poorly studied relative to those of the western and southeastern United States and our knowledge base of regional short-and long-term fire effects on soils is limited.

In 30 of the 40 cases 1 or more of the following(More)
In the USA voluntary male sterilization is wide-spread since years. In the Federal Republic of Germany the frequency of demanding vasectomy is increasing. All who are involved have to assure whether the request for vasectomy bases upon a mature or a neurotic decision which might be regretted one day.

A follow-up study took place 18 to 24 months after the abortion. The crucial point of the follow-up investigation was the development of the relationship, newly(More)
