Spatial and temporal patterns of annual precipitation variability over the Iberian Peninsula
In this study we have examined the spatial and temporal variability of the annual precipitation observations over the Iberian Peninsula (IP) for 47 years and 51 stations. Empirical orthogonalExpand

Trends in warm days and cold nights over the Iberian Peninsula: relationships to large-scale variables
The aims of this study are to identify the trend of warm days and cold nights over the Iberian Peninsula and to connect the variations with large-scale variables. The reasons for performing thisExpand

Long Chain Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid Formation in Neonates: Effect of Gestational Age and Intrauterine Growth
The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of gestational age and intrauterine growth on the long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LCP) synthesis from dietary precursors in neonates asExpand

Concentration and stabilization of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids from sardine oil
A simple and relatively inexpensive procedure to obtain 90% eicosapentaenoic acid + docosahexaenoic acid concentrates from sardine oil involved a two-step winterization of the oil (10 and 4°C),Expand

Assessing two different climatic models and the NCEP–NCAR reanalysis data for the description of winter precipitation in the Iberian Peninsula
The main questions motivating this study are: Can climate simulations describe the observations? To what extent can we use climate models to predict climate change? For this purpose, an analysis wasExpand

Fatty acid composition, extraction, fractionation, and stabilization of bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) oil
The oil extracted from the fat-storage organ (fat body) of the bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) was characterized for its fatty acid composition. The main fatty acids were palmitic (18.1%), stearicExpand

Increased susceptibility of cellular membranes to the induction of oxidative stress after ingestion of high doses of fish oil: effect of aging and protective action of dl-α tocopherol supplementation
Abstract Feeding young and aged rats (2 and 18 months old, respectively) with sardine oil (10 g/kg body weight) for 14 days increases the content of eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid inExpand

Inhibitory effect of boldine on fish oil oxidation
The antioxidative effect of boldine, an alkaloid extracted fromPeumus boldus Mol. (boldo), was assayed on the spontaneous and on the metal-induced oxidation of fish oil. The inhibitory effect ofExpand
