Ecology of Asia's smallest ungulate, the Indian chevrotain or mouse deer (Moschiola indica), has been poorly assessed. We used camera-trapping data to investigate habitat use of mouse deer in Mudumalai Tiger Reserve. Presence/absence data, collected under a systematic sampling framework, were used to test a priori hypotheses incorporating covariates(More)
Soil total organic carbon (TOC) is not sensitive enough to measure the short and medium term changes due to land use change practices, and thus meaningful fractions of soil organic carbon (SOC) should be measured. The objective of this study was to evaluate four agroforestry systems (AFSs) in order to test the hypothesis that agroforestry systems promote an(More)
A 26 years old agroforestry plantation consisting of four multipurpose tree species (MPTs) (Michelia oblonga Wall, Parkia roxburghii G. Don, Alnus nepalensis D. Don, and Pinus kesiya Royle ex-Gordon) maintained at ICAR Research Complex, Umiam, Meghalaya, India were compared with a control plot (without tree plantation) for soil fertility status and CO2(More)
Different programming paradigms have been introduced for enhancing the dynamic behavior of the programs. One among them is Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) which is having the ability to modularize the crosscutting concerns. Patterns are reusable good-quality design practices that have proven useful in the design of software applications. In this paper we(More)
Current autonomic computing systems are ad hoc solutions that are designed and implemented from the scratch, and there are no universal standard (or well established) software methodologies to develop. There are also significant limitations to the way in which these systems are validated. When designing software, in most cases two or more patterns are to be(More)
Conservation of forest associated birds depends on appropriate prediction of habitat change effects on their distribution patterns. We investigated a variety of land use gradients in an attempt to determine which factors influence site occupancy and detection of Red-necked Spurfowl (Pternistis afer) on farmland in the Drakensberg Midlands, South Africa. We(More)
