Plant density and harvest time were manipulated to optimize vegetative (foliar) productivity of cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.] canopies for future dietary use in controlled ecological life-support systems as vegetables or salad greens. Productivity was measured as total shoot and edible dry weights (DW), edible yield rate [(EYR) grams DW per square(More)
Photoperiod and harvest scenario of cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp) canopies were manipulated to optimize productivity for use in future controlled ecological life-support systems. Productivity was measured by edible yield rate (EYR:g m-2 day-1), shoot harvest index (SHI: g edible biomass [g total shoot dry weight]), and yield-efficiency rate (YER:g(More)
Plant density and atmospheric carbon dioxide level were manipulated to optimize productivity of cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp] for future use in a space-deployed Controlled Ecological Life Support System. Cowpea breeding line IT87D-941-1 was grown at plant densities of 3.6, 7.2, 10.7, or 14.3 plants m-2 in a growth chamber maintained at 400 (control)(More)
Although a lot of sophisticated spatial access structures for e cient support of proximity queries to geometric data have been proposed, in practice only few applications of databases handling geometric objects make use of them. An important reason for that is that on one hand, such applications essentially need the DBMS services like transaction(More)
