PREMISE OF THE STUDY Theory and empirical studies have shown that, on average, belowground biomass (M(B)) scales one-to-one (isometrically) with aboveground biomass (M(A)) within and across plant species both at the individual and population level, i.e., M(B) ∝ M(A)(α=1), where α is the scaling exponent. However, little is known about how domestication(More)
The main objective of this study was to investigate the accumulation and distribution of strontium (Sr) in 26 cultivars of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), husk oat (Avena sativa L) and naked oat (Avena nuda), and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) for their potential use in phytoremediation.Sr levels had no effect on the accumulation of shoot biomass at tillering or(More)
Osteoporotic vertebral body fractures are an increasing clinical problem among the aging population. Specimen-specific finite element models, derived from quantitative computed tomography (QCT), have the potential to more accurately predict failure loads in the vertebra. Additionally, the use of extended finite element modeling (X-FEM) allows for a detailed(More)
