1. The response of northern tundra plant communities to warming temperatures is of critical concern because permafrost ecosystems play a key role in global carbon (C) storage, and climate-induced ecological shifts in the plant community will affect the transfer of carbon-dioxide between biological and atmospheric pools. 2. This study, which focuses on the(More)
Description: Advances in Ecological Research is one of the most successful series in the highly competitive field of ecology. Each volume publishes topical and important reviews, interpreting ecology as widely as in the past, to include all material that contributes to our understanding of the field. Topics in this invaluable series include the physiology,(More)
We investigate a way to increase the reliability of distributed wireless networks by introducing two watchdog designs on the Mica mote. These watchdogs detect errors through monitoring aspects of the system and then take steps so that the mote recovers from these errors. The first design is a coprocessor watchdog that monitors the functionality of the main(More)
Traditional intranets have a central location on the network which easily allows the enforcement of a central security policy. They rely on the notion that there is one central entry point for all internal machines. Additionally, all machines that are considered logically inside the intranet reside behind the entry point. Increasingly this is not the case.(More)
INTRODUCTION The development of tinnitus and/or hearing loss (THL) in patients receiving chronic salicylate therapy has been demonstrated. However, to date, little scientific data validates this relationship in the large single overdose setting. OBJECTIVE To correlate salicylate levels in patients with the subjective complaint of THL, following an acute(More)
Ms. Gándara briefed the committee on conversations to date pertaining to the UConn Alumni Association. She advised that the UCAA board voted to dissolve the organization. Ms. Riiska confirmed this vote did take place after much discussion, and was passed by a vast majority of board members. Ms. Riiska advised that this now needs to go the full association(More)

On a motion by Trustee Cantor and seconded by Trustee Bessette(More)
Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) have been shown to reduce abiotic stress on plants, but these effects have not been quantitatively synthesized. We evaluated the degree to which plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) improve plant performance with and without drought stress. We used meta-analysis to summarize 52 published articles on the(More)
Structured mapping and coordination techniques are effective for making sense of conversations and building organizational memory. We present a new method for summarizing e-mail that brings these benefits to mailing lists. Our technique leverages existing e-mail conventions instead of requiring participants to communicate within an imposed framework. Our(More)
