A new, fast, sensitive, and solventless extraction technique was developed in order to analyze beer carbonyl compounds. The method was based on solid-phase microextraction with on-fiber derivatization. A derivatization agent, O-(2,3,4,5,6-pentafluorobenzyl)hydroxylamine (PFBOA), was absorbed onto a divinyl benzene/poly(dimethylsiloxane) 65-microm fiber and(More)
The most important role in the recognition and categorization of predators (as well as other animals) is usually attributed to so-called key features. Under laboratory conditions, we tested the role of yellow eyes (specific for the genus Accipiter in European raptors) and hooked beak (common for all European birds of prey) in the recognition of the(More)
During last decade, the myocardial ischemia was studied in our laboratory in isolated rabbit hearts. The three orthogonal electrograms and optical monophasic action potentials of the left ventricle were continuously recorded according to specific experimental protocol. The original data provided with comments are available in our database and may be useful(More)
Urban animals and birds in particular are able to cope with diverse novel threats in a city environment such as avoiding novel, unfamiliar predators. Predator avoidance often includes alarm signals that can be used also by hetero-specifics, which is mainly the case in mixed-species flocks. It can also occur when species do not form flocks but co-occur(More)
The aim of the present study is to introduce ultra-high-frequency and high-dynamic-range 12-lead ECG measurements using an electromagnetically shielded environment (Faraday cage) and a battery-powered ECG monitor with sampling of 25 kHz and 24-bit resolution. To demonstrate its diagnostic contribution we present the results of 14 subjects - 7 healthy(More)
Few studies have dealt with the importance of colours per se in warning signalling, with the use of a broader array of different colours. We tested the reactions of great tits (Parus major) to colour modifications (red, orange, yellow, white, blue, violet, and green) of the warning signal of the red firebug (Pyrrhocoris apterus), preserving its typical(More)
New ATM trends consider a wide range of automation and shared data within new trajectory based operations. Within this concept aircraft will be able to predict and share very accurate trajectory data via Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Contract Extended Projected Profile (ADS-C EPP) reports. Current ground trajectory prediction tools do not have(More)
Many approaches have been proposed for automatic classification of different pathological events in ECG signals. Present study is focused on analysis and classification of non-ischemic, moderate and severe ischemic, and VPB segments in data obtained in rabbit isolated hearts. It is shown, that use of low number of morphological parameters calculated from(More)
