A growth trial with Senegalese Sole (Solea senegalensis Kaup, 1858) juveniles fed with diets containing increasing replacement levels of fishmeal by mixtures of plant protein sources was conducted over 12 weeks. Total fat contents of muscle, liver, viscera, skin, fins and head tissues were determined, as well as fatty acid profiles of muscle and liver(More)
Among aminoacidopathies, phenylketonuria (PKU) is the most prevalent one. Early diagnosis in the neonatal period with a prompt nutritional therapy (low natural-protein and phenylalanine diet, supplemented with phenylalanine-free amino acid mixtures and special low-protein foods) remains the mainstay of the treatment. Data considering nutrient contents of(More)
Broa is a maize bread highly consumed and appreciated, especially in the north and central zones of Portugal. In the manufacturing of broa, maize flour and maize semolina might be used, besides other cereals such as wheat and rye. Considering the needs for genetically modified organism (GMO) traceability in highly processed foods, the aim of this work was(More)
The consumption of plant food supplements (PFS) has been growing globally, with an increase of misleading labeling and fraudulent practices also being reported. Recently, the use of molecular biology techniques has been proposed to detect botanical adulterations, one of the possible frauds in PFS. However, difficulties in recovering DNA from some PFS(More)
This paper proposes a framework for extending the applicability of the discrete RET (dRET) model to accommodate radiowave scattering from tree trunks, particularly in microcell urban mobile scenarios, at microand millimetre wave frequencies. This framework aims to provide accurate modelling of the signal emanated inside and around isolated blocks of tree(More)
The work presented in this paper aims to continue the progress obtained in the development of a ray tracing based simulation platform for realistic doubly selective radio channels. This framework is the integration of various propagation models present in literature, with a novel method to characterise the obstacles present in the radio path, relying only(More)
This paper presents a method to improve extraction the Radiative Energy Transfer (RET) theory input parameters for application in vegetation attenuation modelling. The input parameters for this model, which are extracted from specific measurement data, are normally influenced by the radiation pattern of the receiver antenna. A new method to improve the(More)
