The dispersion pattern of parasitoids eggs among the hosts was estimated as defined by Green index.
In summary, this endangered mussel does have a small range in the Amite River but has densities within that range similar to most other unionids and a similar dispersion pattern. Inflated Heelsplitters have, as predicted (Haag, 2012), an opportunistic life history strategy with more rapid growth, earlier maturity, and shorter life cycles than most of the other unionids, which Haag (2012) considered an adaptive set of traits for dealing with frequent disturbances and rebounding from small population sizes.
The Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling System Urban (ADMS-Urban) v2.3 modelling package was used [39] to model the dispersion pattern and ground level concentration of particles with a diameter <10 [micro]m ([PM.sub.10]) from both incinerators.
Low-grade neuroendocrine carcinomas may not always demonstrate a granular chromatin pattern or predominant individual-cell dispersion pattern. Recognition of this spectrum may help to establish the correct classification on cytology specimens.
Calculated NNDs that fell below the lower confidence limit indicated a clumped dispersion pattern; those that fell above the upper confidence limit indicated a regular dispersion pattern.
Either contamination of surfaces such as air ducts and rafters, which would be unlikely to have contact with a contaminated source, or the dispersion pattern of multiple positive samples suggest the likelihood of aerosolization.
Cyprinodon beltrani showed no differences in dispersion pattern in single species and intruder treatments.
Wind is typically variable and unpredictable in time and space; hence, considerable spatiotemporal variation is expected in the dispersion pattern of wind-dispersed seeds.
Naming conventions for the Iowa-type curves specify a letter (L, S, R, or O), indicating the type of retirement pattern as well as a number designating the width of the dispersion pattern. A low number indicates a wide dispersion pattern and a high number indicates a n arrow dispersion pattern.
Therefore, he said, you'll have a more uniform dispersion pattern with more repeatable results--and be in control as to how the grain grows.
The dispersion pattern of S|O.sub.2~ is more restricted in areal extent, but peak values of more than 300 ppb lie over the orebody.
