There are several isotype subclasses of IgG, for example, IgG1, IgG2A, and IgG2B.Drosophila melanogaster: A species of fruit fly much used in genetics because of the large size of its chromosomes.Clone Cells: A group of genetically identical cells all descended from a single common ancestral cell by mitosis in eukaryotes or by binary fission in prokaryotes. Clone cells also include populations of recombinant DNA molecules all carrying the same inserted sequence. (From King & Stansfield, Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)Questionnaires: Predetermined sets of questions used to collect data - clinical data, social status, occupational group, etc. The term is often applied to a self-completed survey instrument.Fluorescent Antibody Technique: Test for tissue antigen using either a direct method, by conjugation of antibody with fluorescent dye (FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY TECHNIQUE, DIRECT) or an indirect method, by formation of antigen-antibody complex which is then labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody (FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY TECHNIQUE, INDIRECT). The tissue is then examined by fluorescence microscopy.Risk Factors: An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, or inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent.Mice, Inbred Strains: Genetically identical individuals developed from brother and sister matings which have been carried out for twenty or more generations, or by parent x offspring matings carried out with certain restrictions. All animals within an inbred strain trace back to a common ancestor in the twentieth generation.Cell Division: The fission of a CELL. It includes CYTOKINESIS, when the CYTOPLASM of a cell is divided, and CELL NUCLEUS DIVISION.Magnesium: A metallic element that has the atomic symbol Mg, atomic number 12, and atomic weight 24.31. It is important for the activity of many enzymes, especially those involved in OXIDATIVE PHOSPHORYLATION.Biomimetics: An interdisciplinary field in materials science, ENGINEERING, and BIOLOGY, studying the use of biological principles for synthesis or fabrication of BIOMIMETIC MATERIALS.Movement: The act, process, or result of passing from one place or position to another. It differs from LOCOMOTION in that locomotion is restricted to the passing of the whole body from one place to another, while movement encompasses both locomotion but also a change of the position of the whole body or any of its parts. Movement may be used with reference to humans, vertebrate and invertebrate animals, and microorganisms. Differentiate also from MOTOR ACTIVITY, movement associated with behavior.Reaction Time: The time from the onset of a stimulus until a response is observed.Kidney: Body organ that filters blood for the secretion of URINE and that regulates ion concentrations.Biophysical Phenomena: The physical characteristics and processes of biological systems.Biodiversity: The variety of all native living organisms and their various forms and interrelationships.HeLa Cells: The first continuously cultured human malignant CELL LINE, derived from the cervical carcinoma of Henrietta Lacks. These cells are used for VIRUS CULTIVATION and antitumor drug screening assays.

*  Utah's state parks diving into social media - Farmington Daily Times
... Font Resize Utah's state parks diving into social media Some venues diving into social media, some are dipping toes. Utah State Parks has long had a Facebook page, but it was limited to one "super" page that represented all of the parks and was managed out of the Salt Lake City office. Even the Off-Highway Vehicle Program of Utah State Parks created a page. Social media is one inexpensive marketing tool managers can use to grow their parks locally," Hayes said. Some parks, like Antelope Island, Dead Horse Point and Wasatch Mountain, dove into the social media world while others are dipping their toes in slowly to see how the water feels. Crystal Carpenter is the assistant manager at Dead Horse Point State Park near Moab. State park officials hope to see numbers grow as people realize the parks have created their own pages. Facebook is not the only form of social media being used by some parks. Antelope Island @AntelopeSP, Jordanelle @JordanelleSP and Wasatch Mountain @Wasatch Mountain state parks are usi...

*  How To Identify And Control Insect And Disease Pests On Your Landscape Plants
... There are a variety of different insects and diseases that can infest your landscape plants and cause a considerable amount of damage. Scale insects are very common on Euonymus varieties and some varieties of Magnolias. All varieties are susceptible to attack from Euonymus scale insects. Thousands of these little insects feeding on a plant can cause severe damage. That’s why one of the most effective ways to control scale insects is to spray with a dormant oil spray during the winter months. Get my FREE Ebook, "The Gardener's Secret Handbook", along with a bunch of other really cool stuff just for signing up for my Free Gardening Newsletter. Another insect that can quietly work away damaging your landscape plants without your knowledge are spider mites. Spider mites are very tiny and extremely difficult to see. Like the scale insects, spider mites are also sucking insects. Start Your Own Money Making Backyard Nursery. At home you probably don’t need to worry about that because you probably only have a fe...

He saw wonder and great purpose in the outdoors, whether on an afternoon hike through a Cook County forest preserve or on a sub-zero camping adventure in the Arctic. John's newspaper column was a near-perfect balance of reporting, advocacy and story-telling, especially story-telling. His love and respect for the natural world came through in his writing just as vividly as in person when one ambled a meadow or waded a stream alongside him. As John'...

*  Choosing Landscape Plants - Landscaping
... forum. Landscaping Site. Connie Krochmal BellaOnline's Landscaping Editor. Choosing Landscape Plants. Choose your landscape plants carefully. You’ll never go wrong if you choose low-maintenance, disease and pest-resistant varieties. Just like cars plants come in different sizes. Choose the ones that are right for your yard. For small spaces this means dwarf trees and shrubs. Otherwise you’ll spend a lot of time pruning to keep them within limits. Another reason to choose small trees is your own safety. Dwarf ones can be trimmed with a long pole pruner. Better yet, if you plant them in the correct place they'll never need pruning at all. Buy compatible plants. They tend to spread and overcrowd other garden plants. A member of the mint family, this plant can self-seed and spread by runners. However, this doesn't happen in sites with poor growing conditions. Keep the growing conditions in mind. The same thing goes for sun versus shade. If you plant a sun-worshipping species in shade or partial shade, it wil...

*  Chlorosis of Landscape Plants
... Chlorosis is a yellowing of leaf tissue due to a lack of chlorophyll. Possible causes of chlorosis include poor drainage, damaged roots, compacted roots, high alkalinity, and nutrient deficiencies in the plant. Nutrient deficiencies may occur because there is an insufficient amount in the soil or because the nutrients are unavailable due to a high pH alkaline soil. Or the nutrients may not be absorbed due to injured roots or poor root growth. Manganese or zinc deficiencies in the plant will also cause chlorosis. The way to separate an iron deficiency from a zinc or manganese deficiency is to check what foliage turned chlorotic first. However, manganese and zinc deficiencies develop on the inner or the older leaves first and then progress outward. Plants need iron for the formation of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll gives leaves their green color and is necessary for the plant to produce the food it needs for its own growth. With most plants, iron can only be absorbed as a free ion Fe++ when the pH is between 5....

*  Flaming Geyser State Park
... The 'Flaming Geyser State Park' is located on the Green River in southwestern King County, Washington, near the city of Black Diamond. The park is so named for a flame which burns through a concrete basin, fueled by a methane gas pocket 1,000 feet below the surface. When the pocket was discovered by prospective coal miners in the early 1900s, the test hole hit gas and saltwater, shooting water and flames 25 feet into the air. The same methane pocket seeps gas through a mud hole to create the "Bubbling Geyser" nearby. Despite these unique features, the most popular park use is for summer tubing and rafting in the river. History Park management Natural resources References External links. History. When the land risked takeover by home development, Washington State Parks purchased the land and has managed it since. 5 In March 2009, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Department announced that due to a serious financial shortfall, they were considering closing and "mothballing" a number of state parks....

... Blog Home Pet-friendly Picnic Peak Posted on. August 4, 2014 by. Tom Howe. Miller State Park in Peterborough, NH is the oldest State Park in New Hampshire, protecting a portion of Pack Monadnock deeded to the state in 1891. The park is pet friendly and has some great easy and rewarding hikes, as well as an auto road to the summit. There are two hiking trails leaving from the park entrance to get to the Pack Monadnock summit. The Marion Davis and Wapack trails are both around the same length. I found that the Wapack trail felt longer and had some rocky terrain, but also had some great views from the trail. Both trails are very easy hikes. Leashed pets are allowed in the park and I met lots of dogs and dog walkers on both trails. The Raymond Trail starts outside the park on East Mountain Road, but is also a good hike and takes about the same amount of time as the trails leaving from the park entrance. There are some more views and scenery from the Summit Loop Trail. The auto road is a quick and easy way to...

... Published on The River Reporter http://www.riverreporter.com Home Smoking in state parks ok for now Smoking in state parks ok for now. The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation announced with some fanfare in April that it was going to create smoke-free zones in some state parks, especially where large numbers of people congregate, such as pools and playgrounds. Parks commissioner Rose Harvey said at the time, “State parks and historic sites should be healthy and clean places for our visitors, especially our youngest guests. It makes sense to ensure all visitors have a place to go in our parks to enjoy fresh air, while also protecting children playing at our pools and playgrounds from the dangers of second-hand smoke and reducing litter from discarded cigarette butts.”. Not so fast, said Audrey Silk, founder of Citizens Lobbying Against Smoker Harassment CLASH. She objected to the agency’s implementation of the smoking bans without what she said was “any legislative authorit...

... Skip to the main content. Texas Parks and Wildlife Home The Look of Nature: Designing Texas State Parks During the Great Depression Main. Interactive Program. Park Profiles. Archive. Tyler Set into the Piney Woods of East Texas, Tyler State Park reflects two major park development efforts. The first, directed by landscape architect Ben K. Chambers, involved extensive forest reclamation and land rehabilitation that included tree planting, development of a road system, and construction of a dam and lake. Architect Joe C. Lair oversaw the other effort, which focused on the development of essential park buildings. Particularly noteworthy, the architect’s designs represent a clear break from the National Park Service rustic style so often used at CCC parks, including many in Texas. Lair displayed a familiarity with the Prairie Style, made popular by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and helped to usher in a more modern style in the combination building, bath house, boat house, and residence by using concrete and ...

Buckhorn Island State ParkColes PhillipsProtein primary structure: The primary structure of a peptide or protein is the linear sequence of its amino acid structural units, and partly comprises its overall biomolecular structure. By convention, the primary structure of a protein is reported starting from the amino-terminal (N) end to the carboxyl-terminal (C) end.Symmetry element: A symmetry element is a point of reference about which symmetry operations can take place. In particular, symmetry elements can be centers of inversion, axes of rotation and mirror planes.Burst kinetics: Burst kinetics is a form of enzyme kinetics that refers to an initial high velocity of enzymatic turnover when adding enzyme to substrate. This initial period of high velocity product formation is referred to as the "Burst Phase".Silent mutation: Silent mutations are mutations in DNA that do not significantly alter the phenotype of the organism in which they occur. Silent mutations can occur in non-coding regions (outside of genes or within introns), or they may occur within exons.Matrix model: == Mathematics and physics ==Reaction coordinateTemporal analysis of products: Temporal Analysis of Products (TAP), (TAP-2), (TAP-3) is an experimental technique for studyingDNA binding site: DNA binding sites are a type of binding site found in DNA where other molecules may bind. DNA binding sites are distinct from other binding sites in that (1) they are part of a DNA sequence (e.Proximity ligation assay: Proximity ligation assay (in situ PLA) is a technology that extends the capabilities of traditional immunoassays to include direct detection of proteins, protein interactions and modifications with high specificity and sensitivity. Protein targets can be readily detected and localized with single molecule resolution and objectively quantified in unmodified cells and tissues.Database of protein conformational diversity: The Database of protein conformational diversity (PCDB) is a database of diversity of protein tertiary structures within protein domains as determined by X-ray crystallography. Proteins are inherently flexible and this database collects information on this subject for use in molecular research.List of strains of Escherichia coli: Escherichia coli is a well studied bacterium that was first identified by Theodor Escherich, after whom it was later named.Branching order of bacterial phyla (Gupta, 2001): There are several models of the Branching order of bacterial phyla, one of these was proposed in 2001 by Gupta based on conserved indels or protein, termed "protein signatures", an alternative approach to molecular phylogeny. Some problematic exceptions and conflicts are present to these conserved indels, however, they are in agreement with several groupings of classes and phyla.Permissive temperature: The permissive temperature is the temperature at which a temperature sensitive mutant gene product takes on a normal, functional phenotype.http://www.Interval boundary element method: Interval boundary element method is classical boundary element method with the interval parameters.
Phenotype microarray: The phenotype microarray approach is a technology for high-throughput phenotyping of cells.Alkaliphile: Alkaliphiles are a class of extremophilic microbes capable of survival in alkaline (pH roughly 8.5-11) environments, growing optimally around a pH of 10.Ethyl groupDNA condensation: DNA condensation refers to the process of compacting DNA molecules in vitro or in vivo. Mechanistic details of DNA packing are essential for its functioning in the process of gene regulation in living systems.Ferric uptake regulator family: In molecular biology, the ferric uptake regulator (FUR) family of proteins includes metal ion uptake regulator proteins. These are responsible for controlling the intracellular concentration of iron in many bacteria.Lattice protein: Lattice proteins are highly simplified computer models of proteins which are used to investigate protein folding.Low-voltage electron microscope: Low-voltage electron microscope (LVEM) is an electron microscope which operates at accelerating voltages of a few kiloelectronvolts or less. While the low voltage electron microscopy technique will never replace conventional high voltage electron microscopes, it is quickly becoming appreciated for many different disciplines.FERM domain: In molecular biology, the FERM domain (F for 4.1 protein, E for ezrin, R for radixin and M for moesin) is a widespread protein module involved in localising proteins to the plasma membrane.Beef cattle: Beef cattle are cattle raised for meat production (as distinguished from dairy cattle, used for milk production). The meat of adult cattle is known as beef.DNA sequencer: A DNA sequencer is a scientific instrument used to automate the DNA sequencing process.

The field of molecular evolution uses principles of evolutionary biology and population genetics to explain patterns in these changes.Ligation-independent cloning: Ligation-independent cloning (LIC) is a form of molecular cloning that is able to be performed without the use of restriction endonucleases or DNA ligase. This allows genes that have restriction sites to be cloned without worry of chopping up the insert.Clonal Selection Algorithm: In artificial immune systems, Clonal selection algorithms are a class of algorithms inspired by the clonal selection theory of acquired immunity that explains how B and T lymphocytes improve their response to antigens over time called affinity maturation. These algorithms focus on the Darwinian attributes of the theory where selection is inspired by the affinity of antigen-antibody interactions, reproduction is inspired by cell division, and variation is inspired by somatic hypermutation.Molar mass distribution: In linear polymers the individual polymer chains rarely have exactly the same degree of polymerization and molar mass, and there is always a distribution around an average value. The molar mass distribution (or molecular weight distribution) in a polymer describes the relationship between the number of moles of each polymer species (Ni) and the molar mass (Mi) of that species.Cell membraneVon Neumann regular ring: In mathematics, a von Neumann regular ring is a ring R such that for every a in R there exists an x in R such that . To avoid the possible confusion with the regular rings and regular local rings of commutative algebra (which are unrelated notions), von Neumann regular rings are also called absolutely flat rings, because these rings are characterized by the fact that every left module is flat.Margaret Jope: Margaret Jope (1913–2004) was a Scottish biochemist, born as Henrietta Margaret Halliday in Peterhead, Scotland.Genetic variation: right|thumbCS-BLASTHuman Nature (America album): Human Nature is the fourteenth original studio album by American folk rock duo America, released by Oxygen Records in 1998 (see 1998 in music). It was their first new studio album since 1994's "Hourglass".Specificity constant: In the field of biochemistry, the specificity constant (also called kinetic efficiency or k_{cat}/K_{M}), is a measure of how efficiently an enzyme converts substrates into products. A comparison of specificity constants can also be used as a measure of the preference of an enzyme for different substrates (i.New Zealand rabbitTransmembrane domain: Transmembrane segment usually denotes a single transmembrane alpha helix of a transmembrane protein, also known as an integral protein.http://www.Outline of water: The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to water:Spin–lattice relaxation in the rotating frame: Spin–lattice relaxation in the rotating frame is the mechanism by which Mxy, the transverse component of the magnetization vector, exponentially decays towards its equilibrium value of zero, under the influence of a radio frequency (RF) field in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is characterized by the spin–lattice relaxation time constant in the rotating frame, T1ρ.Mature messenger RNA: Mature messenger RNA, often abbreviated as mature mRNA is a eukaryotic RNA transcript that has been spliced and processed and is ready for translation in the course of protein synthesis. Unlike the eukaryotic RNA immediately after transcription known as precursor messenger RNA, it consists exclusively of exons, with all introns removed.Phase problem: In physics the phase problem is the name given to the problem of loss of information concerning the phase that can occur when making a physical measurement. The name itself comes from the field of x-ray crystallography, where the phase problem has to be solved for the determination of a structure from diffraction data.Evolution in Variable EnvironmentEcosystemThermal cyclerEukaryotic transcription: Eukaryotic transcription is the elaborate process that eukaryotic cells use to copy genetic information stored in DNA into units of RNA replica. Gene transcription occurs in both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells.Proteinogenic amino acid: Proteinogenic amino acids are amino acids that are precursors to proteins, and are incorporated into proteins cotranslationally — that is, during translation. There are 23 proteinogenic amino acids in prokaryotes (including N-Formylmethionine, mainly used to initiate protein synthesis and often removed afterward), but only 21 are encoded by the nuclear genes of eukaryotes.Table of standard reduction potentials for half-reactions important in biochemistry: The values below are standard reduction potentials for half-reactions measured at 25°C, 1 atmosphere and a pH of 7 in aqueous solution.Membrane protein: Membrane proteins are proteins that interact with biological membranes. They are one of the common types of protein along with soluble globular proteins, fibrous proteins, and disordered proteins.Ligand (biochemistry): In biochemistry and pharmacology, a ligand is a substance that forms a complex with a biomolecule to serve a biological purpose. In protein-ligand binding, the ligand is usually a signal-triggering molecule binding to a site on a target protein.Acid catalysis: In acid catalysis and base catalysis a chemical reaction is catalyzed by an acid or a base. The acid is the proton donor and the base is the proton acceptor.Andrew Dickson WhiteNucleic acid structure: Nucleic acid structure refers to the structure of nucleic acids such as DNA and RNA. Chemically speaking, DNA and RNA are very similar.C4H7N3O3Exogenous bacteria: Exogenous bacteria are microorganisms introduced to closed biological systems from the external world. They exist in aquatic and terrestrial environments, as well as the atmosphere.Triparental mating: Triparental mating is a form of Bacterial conjugation where a conjugative plasmid present in one bacterial strain assists the transfer of a mobilizable plasmid present in a second bacterial strain into a third bacterial strain. Plasmids are introduced into bacteria for such purposes as transformation, cloning, or transposon mutagenesis.Knotted protein: Knotted proteins are proteins whose backbones entangle themselves in a knot. One can imagine pulling a protein chain from both termini, as though pulling a string from both ends.Maladaptation: A maladaptation () is a trait that is (or has become) more harmful than helpful, in contrast with an adaptation, which is more helpful than harmful. All organisms, from bacteria to humans, display maladaptive and adaptive traits.Infinite alleles model: The infinite alleles model is a mathematical model for calculating genetic mutations. The Japanese geneticist Motoo Kimura and American geneticist James F.Zuotin: Z-DNA binding protein 1, also known as Zuotin, is a Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast gene.High-performance liquid chromatography: High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC; formerly referred to as high-pressure liquid chromatography), is a technique in analytical chemistry used to separate, identify, and quantify each component in a mixture. It relies on pumps to pass a pressurized liquid solvent containing the sample mixture through a column filled with a solid adsorbent material.X-ray magnetic circular dichroismModern Moral Philosophy: "Modern Moral Philosophy" is an influential article on moral philosophy by G. E.Generalizability theory: Generalizability theory, or G Theory, is a statistical framework for conceptualizing, investigating, and designing reliable observations.

It is usually applied to large molecules or macromolecular complexes such as proteins and industrial polymers.Newington Green Unitarian ChurchSpectrofluorometer: A spectrofluorometer is an instrument which takes advantage of fluorescent properties of some compounds in order to provide information regarding their concentration and chemical environment in a sample. A certain excitation wavelength is selected, and the emission is observed either at a single wavelength, or a scan is performed to record the intensity versus wavelength, also called an emission spectra.HSD2 neurons: HSD2 neurons are a small group of neurons in the brainstem which are uniquely sensitive to the mineralocorticosteroid hormone aldosterone, through expression of HSD11B2. They are located within the caudal medulla oblongata, in the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS).Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation: Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation (also called the Sharpless bishydroxylation) is the chemical reaction of an alkene with osmium tetroxide in the presence of a chiral quinine ligand to form a vicinal diol.Concentration effect: In the study of inhaled anesthetics, the concentration effect is the increase in the rate that the Fa(alveolar concentration)/Fi(inspired concentration) ratio rises as the alveolar concentration of that gas is increased. In simple terms, the higher the concentration of gas administered, the faster the alveolar concentration of that gas approaches the inspired concentration.Liver sinusoid: A liver sinusoid is a type of sinusoidal blood vessel (with fenestrated, discontinuous endothelium) that serves as a location for the oxygen-rich blood from the hepatic artery and the nutrient-rich blood from the portal vein.SIU SOM Histology GIRecombination (cosmology): In cosmology, recombination refers to the epoch at which charged electrons and protons first became bound to form electrically neutral hydrogen atoms.Note that the term recombination is a misnomer, considering that it represents the first time that electrically neutral hydrogen formed.Baby hamster kidney cell: Baby Hamster Kidney fibroblasts (aka BHK cells) are an adherent cell line used in molecular biology.Atomic mass: right |thumb|200px|Stylized [[lithium-7 atom: 3 protons, 4 neutrons, & 3 electrons (total electrons are ~1/4300th of the mass of the nucleus).

(1/70) Sensory and cognitive contributions of color to the recognition of natural scenes.

Although color plays a prominent part in our subjective experience of the visual world, the evolutionary advantage of color vision is still unclear [1] [2], with most current answers pointing towards specialized uses, for example to detect ripe fruit amongst foliage [3] [4] [5] [6]. We investigated whether color has a more general role in visual recognition by looking at the contribution of color to the encoding and retrieval processes involved in pattern recognition [7] [8] [9]. Recognition accuracy was higher for color images of natural scenes than for luminance-matched black and white images, and color information contributed to both components of the recognition process. Initially, color leads to an image-coding advantage at the very early stages of sensory processing, most probably by easing the image-segmentation task. Later, color leads to an advantage in retrieval, presumably as the result of an enhanced image representation in memory due to the additional attribute. Our results ascribe color vision a general role in the processing of visual form, starting at the very earliest stages of analysis: color helps us to recognize things faster and to remember them better.  (+info)

(2/70) The fractal nature of nature: power laws, ecological complexity and biodiversity.

Underlying the diversity of life and the complexity of ecology is order that reflects the operation of fundamental physical and biological processes. Power laws describe empirical scaling relationships that are emergent quantitative features of biodiversity. These features are patterns of structure or dynamics that are self-similar or fractal-like over many orders of magnitude. Power laws allow extrapolation and prediction over a wide range of scales. Some appear to be universal, occurring in virtually all taxa of organisms and types of environments. They offer clues to underlying mechanisms that powerfully constrain biodiversity. We describe recent progress and future prospects for understanding the mechanisms that generate these power laws, and for explaining the diversity of species and complexity of ecosystems in terms of fundamental principles of physical and biological science.  (+info)

(3/70) Rangelands, pastoralists and governments: interlinked systems of people and nature.

We analyse commercially operated rangelands as coupled systems of people and nature. The biophysical components include: (i) the reduction and recovery of potential primary production, reflected as changes in grass production per unit of rainfall; (ii) changes in woody plants dependent on the grazing and fire regimes; and (iii) livestock and wool dynamics influenced by season, condition of the rangeland and numbers of wild and feral animals. The social components include the managers, who vary with regard to a range of cognitive abilities and lifestyle choices, and the regulators who vary in regard to policy goals. We compare agent-based and optimization models of a rangeland system. The agent-based model leads to recognition that policies select for certain management practices by creating a template that governs the trajectories of the behaviour of individuals, learning, and overall system dynamics. Conservative regulations reduce short-term loss in production but also restrict learning. A free-market environment leads to severe degradation but the surviving pastoralists perform well under subsequent variable conditions. The challenge for policy makers is to balance the needs for learning and for preventing excessive degradation. A genetic algorithm model optimizing for net discounted income and based on a population of management solutions (stocking rate, how much to suppress fire, etc.) indicates that robust solutions lead to a loss of about 40% compared with solutions where the sequence of rainfall was known in advance: this is a similar figure to that obtained from the agent-based model. We conclude that, on the basis of Levin's three criteria, rangelands with their livestock and human managers do constitute complex adaptive systems. If this is so, then command-and-control approaches to rangeland policy and management are bound to fail.  (+info)

(4/70) Statistics of spatial cone-excitation ratios in natural scenes.

For some sets of surfaces, the spatial ratios of cone-photoreceptor excitations produced by light reflected from pairs of surfaces are almost invariant under illuminant changes. These sets include large populations of spectral reflectances, some of which represent individual natural surfaces but not their relative abundances in nature. The aim of this study was to determine whether spatial cone-excitation ratios are preserved under illuminant changes within the natural visual environment. A fast hyperspectral imaging system was used to obtain populations of 640,000 reflectance spectra from each of 30 natural scenes. The statistics of spatial cone-excitation ratios for randomly selected pairs of points in these scenes were determined for two extreme daylights. Almost-invariant ratios were common, suggesting that they represent a reliable property of the natural visual environment and a suitable foundation for visual color constancy.  (+info)

(5/70) A metaphysics of living systems: the Yoga-Vasistha view.

The Yoga-Vasistha is a rich and complex philosophical 'poem' (kavya) of epic length, written in classical Sanskrit by an unknown author some time between the 6th and 13th centuries CE, probably around the 7th century. It is notable for its eloquent praise of self-effort and enquiry or analysis, and for its severe disparagement of the notion of fate. It views consciousness as (a) characterizing all living forms (including plant and insect life), (b) being atomic, and (c) analogous to the emergence of waves and whirlpools in water; it therefore grapples with what today would be called the problems of reductionism and emergentism. Notions of the survival of the fittest, and of a dynamic process of creation and loss, are expressed with characteristic force. The paper presents a selection of verses (in an English translation) setting forth these views, and a brief analysis of their implications.  (+info)

(6/70) Multicellular microorganisms: laboratory versus nature.

Our present in-depth knowledge of the physiology and regulatory mechanisms of microorganisms has arisen from our ability to remove them from their natural, complex ecosystems into pure liquid cultures. These cultures are grown under optimized laboratory conditions and allow us to study microorganisms as individuals. However, microorganisms naturally grow in conditions that are far from optimal, which causes them to become organized into multicellular communities that are better protected against the harmful environment. Moreover, this multicellular existence allows individual cells to differentiate and acquire specific properties, such as forming resistant spores, which benefit the whole population. The relocation of natural microorganisms to the laboratory can result in their adaptation to these favourable conditions, which is accompanied by complex changes that include the repression of some protective mechanisms that are essential in nature. Laboratory microorganisms that have been cultured for long periods under optimized conditions might therefore differ markedly from those that exist in natural ecosystems.  (+info)

(7/70) Natural-scene geometry predicts the perception of angles and line orientation.

Visual stimuli that entail the intersection of two or more straight lines elicit a variety of well known perceptual anomalies. Preeminent among these anomalies are the systematic overestimation of acute angles, the underestimation of obtuse angles, and the misperceptions of line orientation exemplified in the classical tilt, Zollner, and Hering illusions. Here we show that the probability distributions of the possible real-world sources of projected lines and angles derived from a range-image database of natural scenes accurately predict each of these perceptual peculiarities. These findings imply that the perception of angles and oriented lines is determined by the statistical relationship between geometrical stimuli and their physical sources in typical visual environments.  (+info)

(8/70) Healthy nature healthy people: 'contact with nature' as an upstream health promotion intervention for populations.

Whilst urban-dwelling individuals who seek out parks and gardens appear to intuitively understand the personal health and well-being benefits arising from 'contact with nature', public health strategies are yet to maximize the untapped resource nature provides, including the benefits of nature contact as an upstream health promotion intervention for populations. This paper presents a summary of empirical, theoretical and anecdotal evidence drawn from a literature review of the human health benefits of contact with nature. Initial findings indicate that nature plays a vital role in human health and well-being, and that parks and nature reserves play a significant role by providing access to nature for individuals. Implications suggest contact with nature may provide an effective population-wide strategy in prevention of mental ill health, with potential application for sub-populations, communities and individuals at higher risk of ill health. Recommendations include further investigation of 'contact with nature' in population health, and examination of the benefits of nature-based interventions. To maximize use of 'contact with nature' in the health promotion of populations, collaborative strategies between researchers and primary health, social services, urban planning and environmental management sectors are required. This approach offers not only an augmentation of existing health promotion and prevention activities, but provides the basis for a socio-ecological approach to public health that incorporates environmental sustainability.  (+info)


What are some things in nature I can eat in Michigan?


I don't eat meat, but I'll eat whatever else in nature has decent nutrition. I hear people can even eat weeds. I want to eat entirely of nature, nothing that will be under the control of Codex Alimentarius.
Hey brotha!
----------

Foraging is a great activity.  There are a wealth of wild foods that you can eat, many with a very wide range, and many that are considered weeds or invasive plants.  Following are some common examples in my area (Chicago), so it is likely that they are in your range as well.

Garlic Mustard - invasive plant that grows rapidly and competes with, often times crowding out, native species.  Distinctive garlic/onion aroma to leaves.  Eat leaves raw, steam, put in soups, etc.  Roots reminiscent of horseradish, and can be prepared similarly.

Dandelions - leaves, roots, flowers, crown are all edible, though somewhat bitter.  Eat raw in early spring (or other times if you like bitter flavors), or steam, add to soups, etc.  Can make wine from flowers.

Purslane - leaves, stems, seeds all edible.  Use raw or steam lightly.

Lamb's Quarter - reminiscent of spinach, and can be used as such.  

Wood Sorel - small, clover-like plant with distinctive heart shapes.  Very tart flavor, reminiscent of lemon.  Use sparingly, as it has a high concentration of oxalic acid.

Chickweed - vine like, low growing plant with white flowers.  Eat raw or steam.

Catnip - the housecat's ecstasy.  Can be dried and used for tea.  Mild skunk-like aroma.

All the above I have found and used in my very own yard.  Others in the wild you might find in abundance include:  raspberries, blackberries, mulberries, apples, burdock, stinging nettle, leeks or onions, fiddlehead fern (young only), morel mushrooms, sulfur shelf mushrooms, black walnuts, may apples (very ripe fruit only), acorns, violets, numerous herbs (mints, mullein, thyme, etc.), juneberries, mustard, hawthorne berries, daylily buds, and many more.  

Be very cautious when beginning foraging.  Not only are there many poisonous varieties of plants, or parts as in rhubarb leaves, but you could also experience allergies or at least sensitivies with new foods.  You must be absolutely positive of your identification, so read up extensively or ideally join up with an experienced botany group, naturalist, foraging group or the like.  Sample only very small portions of one plant at a time to gauge any reaction you might have.  Stay away from roadsides, neatly trimmed lawns or parks, or any area you suspect might have been sprayed with pesticides or herbicides.

Like every vegetable and fruit on the store shelves, wild plants have a typically narrow season in which they are the most tasty and palatable.  Many plants, like the dandelion, are only good for a few weeks in early spring.  Others don't show up until the summer or fall.  Some plants become inedibly bitter or tough after the right season passes.  Some, like the stinging nettle, can become mildly toxic after they flower.  Incidentally, stinging nettles, as their name implies, are covered with small hairs that deliver a painful sting similar to a bee -cooking or drying deacivates the formic acid that results in this sensation (collect with heavy gloves).  Other plants, like pokeweed, become poisonous after their gathering season is over.  Poke is often prized in the south, but this is one plant you should avoid unless you are with an experienced forager.  There are many other plants that are equally nutritious and much safer.  

Also be wary of rare or endangered species of plants in your area, many of which might be edible.  If there are only small quantities of even non endangered species, you might want to pass them up and look for something more abundant.  Plants like garlic mustard, however, are invasive, and you can dine to your heart's content (if it agrees with you).  Of course, you should also be aware of any local ordinances or laws regarding plant collection - it might be illegal to remove them from certain areas such as forest preserves or state or local parks.

Look into the sources below, and be diligent about your studies.  Before long you will be tapping into this abundant source of nutrients.  And there is very little competition (unless you're talking about Morels - these mushroom hunters are like a secretive cult).  Be careful and enjoy.  Great exercise and fresh air, too!


What is the nature of the "nerve damage" in diabetic neuropathy?


I know someone who has it in his feet, resulting from chronic obesity.  I have looked on the web, but nothing explains the nature of the "nerve damage" of which the articles speak.  Can anyone explain this, in terms of a single neuron?
----------

I don't know the physiology behind this, but many people with diabetes, especially those with neuropathy and obesity also have celiac disease. 1 in 25 people with diabetes also have celiac disease. And celiac disease causes neuropathy and other neurological problems (I'm not diabetic, but I became very clumsy and had weird aches and pains before finding out that I was celiac). It's entirely possible that neuropathy is related to the chronic b-12 deficiency that celiacs suffer from. I have not found any studies on how many people with neuropathy and diabetes also have celiac, but your friend should get tested. Many physicians are very out of date with their knowledge of celiac disease and believe that celiac disease only causes weight loss, but all the new research is showing that people can be normal weight or overweight too, and in fact most are. This is one road block in convincing his doctor to do the testing, but I think it's very important. The cure for it is a gluten free diet, so it's very simple. If that is the cause of his neuropathy, it should improve with diet.

Homework = yours,,,,do it.


How big are the nature made multi vitamins for her?


I have a very hard time swallowing large pills. The biggest I've accomplished is a little bigger than an average Ibuprofen. Will someone who takes these vitamins tell me how big they are? I've asked pharmacists are drug stores and they are no help. Nor can you see through Nature Made's bottles. Thank you!

Natures Made are quite large. The smallest I know of are 1 a day.


Should I become a nature photograher or an orthodontist?


I am having trouble deciding what to go to school for. I either would like to be an orthodontist or a nature photograher. Could you please tell me the pros and cons to each career, and the similarities and differences to each career! Thanks!
----------

Why not do both? Orthodontics is a great career and the hours will likely be flexible enough that you will still have plenty of time to pursue photography as a hobby. There would probably also be more of a market for orthodontists than photographers. My town has only 2 orthodontists and everyone nowadays seems to want white, straight teeth.


Can I use Roots of Nature Shea butter green tea strengthening oil moisturizer in my hair?


So i am a white and have blonde hair with highlights but  since i put in more highlights it has caused my hair to be more dry. My mom is black and uses the roots of nature stuff on her hair and it makes it really smooth so shes been telling me to use it on my hair. My only worry it is not ment for my hair type. Does anyone know if i can use it?
----------

Trying it won't hurt--just because you and your mom have different hair textures doesn't mean that it won't work for you. I have this White friend and I remember her using Pink Lotion Moisturizer which is a product used by many African Americans. She said it made her hair soft. If I were you, i'd try your mom's moisturizer--if it's too oily you can always stop using it.


How would a speech specialist determine speech problems if my Child is quiet by nature?


I signed my son up for the early intervention program because he doesn't say much (he's 15 months). He plays and leads me to what he wants, and understands most of what I say, but he just doesn't say much. He is quiet by nature, and the speech specialist will be evaulating him today at the daycare. I am concerned because he is not a very out going child especially if he doesn't know you. I am wondering how she will be able to evaluated him properly if he just doesn't warm up to her. Thanks in advance.
----------

Actually, at his age, his expressive language is probably not a great measure of a true langauge delay. Having only a few words at that age is pretty typical. 

A better measure of his language development is his receptive language and non-verbal langauge. Can he follow one-step directions, is he pointing at things in interest or to display wants and needs, does he shake his head for "no," does he clap, wave, point to body parts, imitate gestures that others make, make eye contact, bring you toys when he is interested in them, share attention (will he look at you to see your reaction to something interesting), play peek-a-boo, etc.....

She might also want to look at his play skills. Does he imitate you when you operate a toy or stack blocks, for example. Does he pretend to talk on a phone? Will he hug or kiss a doll or stuffed animal? These skills are often connected to language skills.

I wouldn't worry. I assume that she knows what she is doing. Is she a speech therapist? Make sure to ask a lot of questions. Good luck!

ADDED: A lot of information for an evaluation of a child that age should be coming from the parents. I hope that this specialist has asked you questions about your child's development? For example, in the case that your son isn't acting himself around her, she should be asking you numerous questions about his typical behavior at home. It is acutally ideal for you to be present during the evaluation so that the specialist can see how your son communicates with you. Is that not possible for some reason?


How can I help make manners second nature for my 6 year old son?


As with most kids, he says please when he wants something, but sometimes when I am not around, I'd observe him calling for people in a certain tone of voice that I wouldn't find unacceptable, and will, at times grab a toy from another child.  Sometimes he forgets to say please or thank you and I have to constantly remind him.  How can I help him make manners second nature?
----------

You make manner second nature by modeling them yourself-- you and your hubby need to at all times remember that he is watching and imitating you. If you always use nice tones of voice, he will mimick you eventually.

Another important thing to do is practice. Set up a little time every week where you can pretend to be another child and he can ask politely for the toy etc. Or practice whichever manners you want to reinforce.

Remember, if you make it a priority on a daily basis, he will understand the importance of manners.
