In order to provide an arbitrary and fully dynamic connectivity in a network of processors, transport mechanisms must be implemented, which provide the propagation of data from processor to processor, based on addresses contained within a packet of data. Such data transport mechanisms must satisfy a number of requirements - deadlock and livelock freedom,(More)
those methods as they have been used from the Canadian Prairie Provinces to the southern Great Plains of Successful dryland crop production in the semiarid Great Plains the United States and the resultant effects on system of North America must make efficient use of precipitation that is often limited and erratic in spatial and temporal distribution.

Clinical and translational research increasingly requires computation. Projects may involve multiple computationally oriented groups including information technology (IT) professionals, computer scientists, and biomedical informaticians. However, many biomedical researchers are not aware of the distinctions among these complementary groups, leading to(More)
Organic agricultural production has become a major economic and cultural force. However, in water-limited environments the tools used for weed control and nutrient supply, namely tillage and cover crops, may not be environmentally or economically sustainable as tillage damages soil and cover crops use valuable water. Thus, a major challenge has been finding(More)
Genetic relationships of condensed tannins (CT) with other forage quality parameters have not been adequately studied in birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus L.). The objectives were to bidirectionally select for CT concentration in birdsfoot trefoil to determine selection response and to create populations for examination of genetic relationships of CT(More)
Although the term “organic” may sound ambiguous, the USDA National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) provides useful guidelines. Specifically, the NOSB states that organic agriculture “is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on-farm management practices that restore, maintain, or enhance ecological harmony.” In this context, “the primary goal of organic(More)
AIM To determine the prevalence of neutropenia and agranulocytosis in patients taking clozapine since its introduction into New Zealand in April 1988. METHOD Data was collected by Sandoz Pharma (NZ) Ltd on blood counts from all patients prescribed clozapine as part of its worldwide monitoring programme for this drug. The data was analysed by one of the(More)
