A Gram-reaction-negative, yellow-pigmented strain, designated EX36(T), was characterized using a polyphasic approach comprising phylogenetic, morphological and genotypic analyses. The endophytic strain was isolated from Zn/Cd-accumulating Salix caprea in Arnoldstein, Austria. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene demonstrated that the novel strain is most closely(More)
Different regions of the bacterial 16S rRNA gene evolve at different evolutionary rates. The scientific outcome of short read sequencing studies therefore alters with the gene region sequenced. We wanted to gain insight in the impact of primer choice on the outcome of short read sequencing efforts. All the unknowns associated with sequencing data, i.e.(More)
The world's fourth largest food crop, potato, originates in the Andes. Here, the community composition of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) associated with potato in Andean ecosystems is described for the first time. AMF were studied in potato roots and rhizosphere soil at four different altitudes from 2,658 to 4,075 m above mean sea level (mamsl) and in(More)
Fences are used all over the world to protect areas against unauthorized access. While most fences meet these requirements by building a physical and psychological barrier against intruders, this is not sufficient for areas of particular interest like restricted areas of an airport or construction sites with expensive goods. To detect intruders we integrate(More)
Versatility and real world applicability are key features of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). In order to achieve these benefits we have to face the challenges of high practical relevance during application. We deploy and evaluate the concrete example of a fence monitoring task to reveal how our distributed event detection system is able to perform under(More)
In diesem Artikel diskutieren wir Möglichkeiten für die Umsetzung datenschutzfreundlicher und sicherer Lösungen für das Internet der Dinge unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der Benutzbarkeit. Als entscheidendes Moment für die angestrebte Nutzerakzeptanz erweist sich dabei ihre frühzeitige Einbeziehung — bereits in der konzeptionellen Phase der Entwicklung(More)
This paper analyzes the requirements of mobile health applications concerning real-time criteria and describes the current state of real-time capabilities on constrained devices and low-power networks. Based on this analysis we observe that for these applications real-time capabilities are not only required per system, but also for the entire distributed(More)
