The influence of substrate moisture (hydration) and grain size (texture) on oviposition was quantified in choice tests using Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto Giles (Diptera: Culicidae) laboratory strains and gravid An. gambiae sensu lato from a natural population in Western Kenya. A strong, positive correlation was found between moisture content and the(More)
We present a new provenance model for generating <i>fine-grained</i> data and service dependencies within XML data processing workflows. Our approach follows the widely used <i>black box transformation</i> semantics [15] in which service components produce new outputs from their inputs (without transformation). The heart of the model are <i>data dependency(More)
Some recent high-load, low-density pheromone-release devices emit an ethanolic blend of pheromone directly onto crop foliage to control insect pests by mating disruption. This study characterized the phytotoxicity associated with deposition of some pheromonal compounds in concentrated drops on the foliage of trees bearing aerosol release devices. The(More)
This paper describes a service-oriented architecture for accessing resources through semantically designed portals called hubs. The services are dedicated to: (a) ontology management, (b) annotation generation from texts based on linguistic or machine learning techniques, (c) persistent storage of ontologies and metadata, and (d) semantic search in(More)
WePIGE illustrates a new approach for extracting fine-grained provenance information from XML artefact-based workflow executions. The extraction framework relies on the usage of XPath mapping rules for inferring data and service dependency links [2]. This demonstration illustrates the usage of the WePIGE graphical user interface for exploring the provenance(More)
For the purpose of HVDC or FACTS device studies, the AC power system is often reduced to an equivalent seen by the device at the point of common coupling (PCC). This practice is encouraged by the fact that electromagnetic transient simulation of large AC power systems is computationally expensive and time-consuming and might not respect the realtime(More)
We describe the WebContent platform for the management of content from the Web. The platform is based on a service-oriented architecture and Web standards (notably, Web services, XML and RDF). An enterprise service bus (following the JBI specification) and BEPL may be used to orchestrate service invocations. A peerto-peer architecture may also be used to(More)
