Considerable efforts have been made to investigate how homing pigeons (Columba livia f. domestica) are able to return to their loft from distant, unfamiliar sites while the mechanisms underlying navigation in familiar territory have received less attention. With the recent advent of global positioning system (GPS) data loggers small enough to be carried by(More)
A model for spatial prediction of landslide hazard was applied to a watershed affected by landslide events that occurred during the winter of 1995-96, following heavy rains, and snowmelt. Digital elevation data with 22.86 m x 22.86 m resolution was used for deriving topographic attributes used for modeling. The model is based on the combination of logistic(More)
A COMPUTERIZED MORPHOMETRIC CLASSIFICATION TECHNIQUE BASED ON LATENT FACTORS REVEALS MAJOR PROTRUSION CLASSES: factors 4, 5, and 7. Previous work showed that factor 4 represented filopodia, 5 the distribution of lamellar cytoplasm, and 7 a blunt protrusion. We explore the relationship of focal contact (FC) characteristics and their integrated actin cables(More)
An Evolutionary Neural Network (ENN) is developed to identify bats by their vocalization characteristics. This is in an effort to identify local bat species as a large number of bat fatalities near wind turbines have been reported. ENN is based on the Genetic Algorithm, which can be used for optimization of the weight selection of the neural network. We(More)
