Hedonic Pricing Method relates differences in property prices (house and land prices) to variables in the surrounding environment. The basic principle is that property prices are affected to some extent by the characteristics of a particular environment effect. The environment effect can then be given a price tag based on house prices. An environment effect can be seen as positive (proximity to a recreational area, nice view) or negative (water pollution, risk of flooding). It may be to do with differences in time (time series data: prices in 1970 compared to prices in 2005 related to a change in the environment effect). It is also possible to analyse differences between areas with the same type of property but with one important difference in environment variable (cross-section data: the same type of housing in comparable environments with and without the environment effect). ...

Autism is a developmental disability with age of onset in childhood (under 3 years old), which is characterized by definite impairments in social interactions, abnormalities in speech, and stereotyped pattern of behaviors. Due to the progress of autism in recent decades, a wide range of studies have been done to identify the etiological factors of autism. It has been found that genetic and environmental factors are both involved in autism pathogenesis. Hence, in this review article, a set of environmental factors involved in the occurrence of autism has been collected, and finally, some practical recommendations for reduction of the risk of this devastating disease in children are represented.. ...

To increase tolerance to abiotic stresses in breeding programmes, typically families and collections of genotypes are evaluated in series of trials (environments) representing different levels of stress. The statistical analysis of the data from such trials concentrates on modelling the phenotypic behaviour of the genotypes across the set of environments. This phenotypic behaviour can be modelled in the form of genotype-specific linear and non-linear response curves in relation to environmental characterizations. Non-parallelism of the response curves indicates genotype × environment interaction. Identification of the genetic basis of the parameters determining the response curves will help in the development of breeding programmes for improving abiotic stress tolerance and understanding genotype × environment interaction. In this paper we present two strategies for locating quantitative trait loci for response-curve parameters and estimation of their allele effects. The procedures are ...
The term "genotype by environment (G × E) interaction" refers to the fact that the best genotype in one environment may not be the best genotype in another environment[1] and that genotypes differ in their response to environmental factors, which means that genetic variance for environmental sensitivity or phenotypic plasticity exists[2]. Some environmental factors (e.g., temperature, soil, diet, etc.) are identifiable and can be categorised (e.g., temperate or tropical climate) or quantified (e.g., temperature) and thus are referred to as macro-environmental factors. Other environmental factors are unknown and referred to as micro-environmental factors[1]. Therefore, genetic variance in macro-environmental sensitivity is the genetic variance due to known environmental factors and can be expressed as the genetic variance in the slope of a reaction norm when environments can be quantified on a continuous scale. If environments are categorized, then phenotypes in different environments are ...
An option into guide selection strategies in soybean breeding programs is to investigate associations between the main traits studied by breeders. A question that is faced is the possible influence of genotype x environment (GE) interactions on correlations among traits. Path analysis allows, in addition to measuring correlation, a more detailed study of cause / effect relationships among traits. We measured the effect of the GE interaction in the association between agronomic traits in soybeans. The experiments were carried out during two crop seasons, in three municipalities of Minas Gerais, Brazil, using a randomized complete blocks design, with 35 treatments. We evaluated number of grains, number of pods (NP), number of grains per pod, grain yield, weight of 100 grains, lodging score, plant height, height of first pod insertion, and full maturity. The data were submitted to variance analysis and path analysis. We also calculated the sum of ranks index in three ways, considering different ...
We have investigated patterns of selection and local adaptation in soil bacteria sampled over the course of 2 years. Our leading results are: (i) most variation in fitness in our dataset is explained by differences among genotypes, in comparison with environments or genotype-by-environment interactions; (ii) though small, G × E variation is significant, even among genotypes that would otherwise be identified as identical through conventional sequence analysis, and sufficient to generate strong divergent selection among the most disparate environments; (iii) temporal adaptation can be substantial, especially relative to spatial variation, and more complex than we would expect from simple models of directional selection. Below we discuss these observations and what they mean for understanding how selection works in natural communities of microbes.. The main effect of genotype contributed close to 70% of the variation in fitness in our experiment, dwarfing that contributed by the average effect of ...

Were interested in genetics of natural variation, population genetics and molecular biology. We want to know how climate change is shaping plants resistance and tolerance traits under a combined multidisciplinary approach. Our lab undertakes a research approach that looks for the genetic and molecular basis of naturally occurring quantitative variation in biotic and abiotic stress responses, and how these interact with the environment (genotype-by-environment interactions). This multidisciplinary approach will allow a better understanding of the natural evolution of stress pathways in plants and efficient know-how transfer to practical applications ...

Organisms adapt readily to regularly varying environments, for instance, by adjusting to the daily light cycles by using internal circadian clocks. Real problems arise when environmental fluctuations are irregular. Organisms can adapt to sudden changes in chemical composition, local temperature, or illumination by sensing the changes and responding appropriately, for example, by switching phenotype or behavior. But there is a cost: each individual must maintain active sensory machinery.. Population diversity offers an alternate way to adapt to randomly fluctuating environments. Different subsets of the total population may be well-adapted to different types of environments. In genetically clonal populations, phenotypic diversity is generated by stochastic phenotype-switching mechanisms (1-9). Examples include flagellin phase variation in Salmonella enterica (6); microsatellite length variation (slipped-strand mispairing), controlling the expression of contingency genes in Haemophilus influenzae ...
An enduring puzzle in evolutionary biology is to understand how individuals and populations adapt to fluctuating environments. Here we present an integro-differential model of adaptive dynamics in a phenotype-structured population whose fitness landscape evolves in time due to periodic environmental oscillations. The analytical tractability of our model allows for a systematic investigation of the relative contributions of heritable variations in gene expression, environmental changes and natural selection as drivers of phenotypic adaptation. We show that environmental fluctuations can induce the population to enter an unstable and fluctuation-driven epigenetic state. We demonstrate that this can trigger the emergence of oscillations in the size of the population, and we establish a full characterisation of such oscillations. Moreover, the results of our analyses provide a formal basis for the claim that higher rates of epimutations can bring about higher levels of intrapopulation heterogeneity, whilst

SUMMARYFactors affecting survival of parasites introduced to new geographical regions include changes in environmental temperature. Protopolystoma xenopodis is a monogenean introduced with the amphibian Xenopus laevis from South Africa to Wales (probably in the 1960s) where low water temperatures impose major constraints on life-cycle processes. Effects were quantified by maintenance of eggs from infections in Wales under controlled conditions at 10, 12, 15, 18, 20 and 25°C. The threshold for egg viability/ development was 15°C. Mean times to hatching were 22 days at 25°C, 32 days at 20°C, extending to 66 days at 15°C. Field temperature records provided calibration of transmission schedules. Although egg production continues year-round, all eggs produced during ,8 months/ year die without hatching. Output contributing significantly to transmission is restricted to 10 weeks (May-mid-July). Host infection, beginning after a time lag of 8 weeks for egg development, is also restricted to 10 ...

This review highlights current knowledge of environmental factors in carcinogenesis and their cellular targets. The hypothesis that environmental factors influence carcinogenesis is widely supported by both epidemiological and experimental studies. The fact that only a small fraction of cancers can be attributed to germline mutations in cancer-related genes further buttresses the importance of environmental factors in carcinogenesis. Furthermore, penetrance of germline mutations may be modified by either environmental or other genetic factors. Examples of environmental factors that have been associated with increased cancer risk in the human population include chemical and physical mutagens (e.g. cigarette smoke, heterocyclic amines, asbestos and UV irradiation), infection by certain viral or bacterial pathogens, and dietary non-genotoxic constituents (e.g. macro- and micronutrients). Among molecular targets of environmental influences on carcinogenesis are somatic mutation (genetic change) and ...
Genotype by environment interactions (GxE) may reduce accuracy of sire selection. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the presence of GxE by comparing reaction norms of bulls for birth weight, weaning weight, gain and stayability. Environments were defined as nine regions within the United States with similar temperature humidity index. The environmental mean was determined and a weighted regression was used to determine the progeny mean. Reaction norms were calculated by regressing the progeny mean on the environmental mean. A logit model was used to determine the heritability of stayability on the underlying scale. The heritabilities of BW and WW reaction norms were 0.40 and 0.39, respectively. Heritabilities of stayabaility were 0.34, 0.18, 0.19, 0.08, 0.09, 0.28, 0.30, 0.31 and 0.40 for regions C, D, G, L, M, N, P, S and U, respectively and 0.18 for the national dataset. The percentages of females that calved at age four, given that they had calved at age two were 56.7, 39.9, 32.9, ...

The strategic environmental assessment (SEA) is carried out for certain plans, programmes that are likely to have significant environmental effects in accordance with the SEA Act (200/2005) and the SEA Decree (347/2005). The purpose of SEA is to ensure that environmental considerations are integrated into plan and programme in support of environmentally sound and sustainable development. Environmental assessment means an assessment of the environmental effects of a plan or programme and its alternatives, preparation of an environmental report, carrying out consultations, taking into account the environmental report and the results of consultations in decisionmaking, and the provision of information on the decision. The SEA is made by the authority preparing the plan or programme. The types of plans and programmes subject to the SEA are mainly specified in the legislation. A SEA is a required for e.g. national land use objectives, nature conservation programmes, regional plans, river basin ...
Since plants not only provide food for man and his domestic animals but also pharmaceutical products and raw materials for industry, the development of new crops is of great importance. However, many plant species remain unexploited or are only utilized at a local level. This book provides information on the current research into the use of such crops and on their development in a commercial setting. Written by scientists from many different countries, it covers a wide variety of both temperate and tropical crops, their cultivation, marketing and development, and the socio-economic and environmental factors influencing their utilization.
In discussions regarding growth in specific populations, it is important to use measurements that are independent of important confounding variables such as age and sex. The growth pattern of Pima children markedly differs from U.S. references published by the CDC (14). Preliminary analysis of our data showed that age correlated with the CDC weight z score (r = 0.2, P , 0.01). Because we derived z scores from regression models fit to the study population, these scores had the desirable properties of a mean of zero, a standard deviation of one, and being uncorrelated with age or sex.. There has been considerable interest in identifying patterns of early growth associated with later development of type 2 diabetes. This reflects the potential that specific environmental factors influencing growth, for example undernutrition in fetal and early postnatal life, might predispose to later development of diabetes.. In Pima Indians, maternal diabetes is associated with an increased risk of both type 2 ...

Sanjay Jain (University of Delhi; SFI External Professor). Abstract. What sets the scale of the size of bacterial cells and the scale of fluctuations of cell size of genetically identical bacteria in a fixed environment? The talk will discuss the possible origin of these two scales, as well the origin of a time scale - the doubling time of cells. Phenotypic variation in genetically identical cells is generally believed to be a consequence of environmental variations or stochasticity in gene expression due to the small number of molecules involved. Another source of phenotypic variation will be described - the first passage time for a molecular population to cross a fixed threshold in growing cells. In the context of a generic class of mathematical models of cells it will be shown how this time scale and its fluctuations set the average size of cells and the fluctuations of size. ...

Facets of the post-natal environment including the type and complexity of environmental stimuli, the quality of parenting behaviors, and the amount and type of stress experienced by a child affects brain and behavioral functioning. Poverty is a type of pervasive experience that is likely to influence biobehavioral processes because children developing in such environments often encounter high levels of stress and reduced environmental stimulation. This study explores the association between socioeconomic status and the hippocampus, a brain region involved in learning and memory that is known to be affected by stress. We employ a voxel-based morphometry analytic framework with region of interest drawing for structural brain images acquired from participants across the socioeconomic spectrum (n = 317). Children from lower income backgrounds had lower hippocampal gray matter density, a measure of volume. This finding is discussed in terms of disparities in education and health that are observed across the

Environmental factors can also raise your risk of addiction. For children and teens, lack of parental involvement can lead to greater risk-taking or experimentation with alcohol and other drugs. Young people who experience abuse or neglect from parents may also use drugs or alcohol to cope with their emotions.. Peer pressure is another risk factor for addiction, especially among young people. Even when its not overt or aggressive, pressure from friends to fit in can create an environment of "experimentation" with substances that can lead to addiction. The availability of a substance in your social group can also affect your risk of becoming addicted. For example, large amounts of alcohol are available in many social settings that are popular among college students.. If youre trying to recover from an addiction, you may need to avoid environmental triggers, including some activities, settings, or people. For example, you may need to avoid the people that you previously used drugs with. You may ...
Both diseases are so-called lifestyle diseases. From a global perspective, 370 million people suffer from diabetes and their number is rising. In the press, an epidemic of the third millennium is discussed. Over 15% of European couples of reproductive age have problems with conception of a child. The male factor accounts for over 60% in infertility. Infertility in men is caused by a wide range of factors - genetic and living environment, vascular disease but also metabolic illnesses. They include also diabetes mellitus.. "From long-term studies, we know that environmental factors can have a negative effect on reproductive parameters in male mice. We were interested in whether the diabetes environment could have a similar effect," says Jana Pěknicová from the Laboratory of Reproductive Biology at the Institute of Biotechnology of the CAS - BIOCEV. "In collaboration with Gabriela Pavlínková from the Laboratory of Molecular Pathogenetics, who has for a long time dealt with research of the ...
Autism is undeniably influenced by genes, but a new study suggests that environmental factors may also contribute significantly - more than researchers previously thought - to the developmental disorder. In fact, environmental factors may play at least as big a role as genes in causing autism.

By studying Autism Profiles, we hope to identify different subgroups of ASD. These subgroups will provide clues that will help us understand some of the very earliest signs of developmental differences or anomalies. We believe that the distinctive subgroups of ASDs may respond differently to a variety of treatments (e.g., dietary, ABA, educational strategies). Very careful clinical assessments will hopefully lead to our separating families into different subgroups based on subtle differences in the behaviour/symptoms and/or physical features of the affected individuals (i.e. through the creation of Autism Profiles). It is important to learn whether genetic or environmental differences exist that could account for subgroups of ASDs, and the different responses to the variety of treatments and supports used with individuals with an ASD. Since some characteristics are familial, rather than specific to an ASD, we encourage all family members to take part in all of our studies. This includes the ...

These sections describe some of the basic site requirements that you should be aware of as you prepare to install your Cisco SFS 7000P and SFS 7000D Server Switches. Environmental factors can adversely affect the performance and longevity of your system. Planning a proper location for the switch and layout of your equipment rack or wiring closet is essential for successful system operation. You should install the switch in an enclosed, secure area, ensuring that only qualified personnel have access to the switch and control of the environment. Equipment that is placed too closely together or placed in inadequately ventilated areas can cause system overtemperature conditions leading to premature component failures. In addition, poor equipment placement can make chassis panels inaccessable and difficult to maintain. The switch requires a dry, clean, well-ventilated, and air-conditioned environment. To ensure normal operation, maintain ambient airflow. If the airflow is blocked or restricted, or if ...

Dr. Hannes Mutschler, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology Cambridge There is strong evidence for a primordial biology, in which RNA was the central biomolecule responsible information storage and catalysis. A key component of this RNA world would have been ribozymes that were capable of catalysing their own replication as well as replication of a nascent RNA genome. The closest known analogue of such primordial replicases are RNA polymerase ribozymes (RPRs) identified by directed evolution. Some RPR variants are able to synthesize another ribozyme or RNA oligomers exceeding their own size (~200 nt). However, a general replication of longer RNAs by RPRs or non-enzymatic processes is impeded by the related problems of template secondary structure and the high stability of RNA duplexes. Moreover, non-enzymatic polymerisation of RNA from all four natural nucleotides yields oligomers barely exceeding ~20 nt, even under favourable conditions. Thus, it appears that early molecular evolution was ...

Man, more than any organism in this world, makes use of his environment in which he lives. But sometimes, it appears to be that man does not give back as much as he takes from his environment. For most animals,there would be a natural check and balance system operates in the environment to keep them from completely killing other species of animals and plants as well. But there is no natural check on man, we have been using up all the resources rapidly, as if they were unlimited. But this is not so,there were resources that can be replaced or used again within a short period of time such as trees and water.Furthermore, most animals and plants are also replaceable,because they can reproduce themselves, that is, unless man understands, respects and supplies the needs of these animals and plants. Although there were resources that can be renewed, there were also non-renewable resources such as top soil, minerals and fuels. These kind of resources takes several hundreds of years to take before the ...

Neurodiversity activists want people to quit using evolution arguments in eugenicist ways. Im going to put on my scientist hat and say that those people are doing science wrong. Evolution isnt stepwise, so calling autism the next step in human evolution is just silly. Diversity is a thing that nature has been "willing" to pay a pretty high price for, since environments change and therefore the most advantageous traits to have will change- and so will the most advantageous ratios of different kinds of traits, since having one species that does all the things isnt actually how this works. Ecosystems have niches, filled by different species that do different things. Human societies have niches too, best filled by different people with different things they can do. And when times change, the different kinds of niches change in number. Keeping as many traits around as possible is evolutionarily advantageous, and yes, that means heritable disabilities, and yes, that means heritable mental ...

To put an example to it: an individual is born with a mutation that affects his immune system, making it lack a certain biochemical marker. Because the immune system has numerous pathways this individual notices no difference in health compared to others around him. However, a new and unknown virus breaks out in the population, which requires that specific biochemical marker in which to enter cells. Some survive by chance, but most perish. Meanwhile this individual survives not by chance but by merit of this mutation. He then mates and passes on this gene. In the future when the virus reappears in the population his children will have an advantage over those without this trait, and over time their genes will come to dominate the gene pool. Similarly other mutations will be selected for as the environment changes. Some will select for physical characteristics, others for biochemical, and so on; surviving disease, getting food, attracting mates---these characteristics serve a purpose to increase ...

Actuality. Sanitary microbiology is a science based on the detection of risks associated with the production, manufacture and consumption of foods, air and water. It has been established that environment facts determine the survival, growing and inactivation of the microorganisms. These risks are commonly associated with the presence of microbiological hazards and represent a serious problem from the Public Health viewpoint. The types of microorganisms s presents in products will depend of the way they have been elaborated, transportated, stored, taking or prepared before eating.. The study of the sanitary-bacteriological of objects of external environment is needed for warning of development of infections, understanding of origin of infection. All of it is very topically lately. So for example, the absence of coliforms in a water sample does not give absolute assurance of the absence of pathogenic organisms, but it is a good indication. Certain other types of microbial pathogens such as viruses ...
What the data show is that people who favor "socially protective" policies (the ones pre-defined as "conservative") have stronger physiological responses to anxiety-provoking situations (disturbing images and startling sounds) than those who do not favor those policies. Physiological response to stress is strongly tied to psychological factors whose biological basis is unclear at best. But the interviewee cites some concrete numbers, apparently pulled out of thin air: "Probably two-thirds of the explanation is outside of biology," with the rest based on specifically on DNA. Keep in mind that this study did not look at genetic factors at all. There is absolutely no support for saying that correlation between biology and politics, if it exists at all, is based on DNA rather than on environmental effects on ones biology. In other words, there is no investigation into whether the results come from nature or from nurture. (In fairness, this conclusion is not presented in the abstract of the study ...
So if my brother had been a match, I could watch over him, make sure he was being healthy, make sure he was doing all the right things, and yell at him if he wasnt. Of course, I still do that, because all I do is worry about my friends and family and their health. Sometimes Im glad it was me who got sick, because Im vigilant enough to go to the doctor when something is wrong. Would Garrett have reacted the same way? He almost made my heart stop this past Christmas when he casually mentioned to me that he had a "swollen lymph node" under his arm. Those exact words I googled 3 years ago and led me to a cancer diagnosis. I berated him about it and he said it went away and he was fine. And most likely he is, but hearing those words from my little brother on the cusp of his own 26th year frightened the crap of out of me. After all, we grew up in the same house, ate the same food, and were exposed to the same environment, until I moved away for college. Garrett was actually the "sickly" child in ...
Rapporteur: Keith L. Jackson. More than 140 papers with phenotypic plasticity have been published in the last four years, indicating its importance or at least its popularity in current evolutionary biology. Phenotypic plasticity is environmentally induced variation resulting in varying phenotypes for a given genotype.. Plasticity has been documented in morphological, behavioural, physiological, and life history characters. Two well known examples were are: Daphnia developing a neck spine and a longer tail spine and snails growing thicker shells, both induced by the presence of predators in their environment. Characters that vary with an environmental condition may be plotted as the variable dependent on the environmental condition (independent variable). This plot is referred to as a reaction norm, and provides a simple way to visualise the relationship. The reaction norm is usually shown as a line plot to highlight the direction of relation; however, it must be noted that the line is only ...

Users new to Linux may often find this way of managing settings a bit unmanageable. However, environment variables provide a simple way to share configuration settings between multiple applications and processes in Linux. ...

Many of you have a false conception of what it is like in the Higher Dimensions. The higher realms are not a nebulous, unsubstantial environment, and they will seem no different to you than your earthly physical surroundings. However, as you will observe over time, there are many differences. When you pass over, you will have form and substance. Yes, your form will be more refined and not as solid as it is in the Third- / Fourth-Dimensional environment, but you will feel solid and everything around you will have form and order as well. The level you are attuned to or compatible with will determine how consciously aware you are, and the abilities you will have, as well as how your surrounding environment will look. Again, the frequencies you project or resonate to will determine which Dimension or Sub-Plane Dimensional level you will go to, and also what level of cosmic information you will be able to access. Your Auric Field is like a cloak that surrounds your Etheric or Astral bodies, and it is ...
