• Athletes
  • Physiological RV enlargement is commonly observed in both black and white athletes. (acc.org)
  • However, a higher prevalence of underlying ECG abnormalities (potentially suggestive of arrhythmogenic RV cardiomyopathy) among black athletes increases the potential for inappropriate disqualification of black athletes based on physiological RV enlargement. (acc.org)
  • survive
  • Xerophytes may use water from their own storage, allocate water specifically to sites of new tissue growth, or lose less water to the atmosphere and so convert a greater proportion of water in the soil to growth, or have other adaptations to manage water supply and enable them to survive. (wikipedia.org)
  • physiology
  • The papers explore the physiology and biochemistry of animal adaptation and ecology and cover topics ranging from amino acid transport and metabolism during osmotic shock to the role of organic compounds in osmoregulation in plants and animals. (elsevier.com)
  • Exercise
  • In the law of patents-grants by the government to inventors for the exclusive right to manufacture, use, or market inventions for a term of years-adaptation denotes a category of patentable inventions, which entails the application of an existing product or process to a new use, accompanied by the exercise of inventive faculties. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The progressive adaptation of well-known devices to new, but similar, uses is merely a display of an expected technical proficiency, which involves only the exercise of common reasoning abilities upon materials furnished by special knowledge ensuing from continual practice. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Regular, intensive exercise results in physiological biventricular cardiac adaptation. (acc.org)
  • Study
  • In the 1820s, the French physiologist Henri Milne-Edwards introduced the notion of physiological division of labor, which allowed to "compare and study living things as if they were machines created by the industry of man. (wikipedia.org)
  • different
  • The adaptation of a device to a different field can constitute an invention if inventiveness exists in the conception of new use and with modifications necessary to render the device applicable in the new field. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • activities
  • The adaptation to wood-boring and wood-feeding activities in beetle larvae was reached independently by phyletic lines not closely related, as a convergent evolution due to feeding behaviour. (blogspot.com)
  • serves
  • These data strongly suggest that oscillatory DHS may regulate the tissue fluid dynamics, which serves critically in bone adaptation. (suny.edu)
  • effect
  • The effect of seawater adaptation on the phosphatidyl-choline metabolism in the eel is also considered, along with evaporative water loss in anuran amphibians. (elsevier.com)
