The elongate infructescences of Polyptera manningii bear numerous helically arranged sessile fruits. The fruit is a pyramidal(More)
The projected increase in the use of compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) motivates the development of methods to manage consumer exposure to mercury and its environmental release at the end of lamp life. This work characterizes the time-resolved release of mercury vapor from broken CFLs and from underlying substrates after removal of glass fragments to(More)
