(2005) clearly described the existence of genes that control colony fusibility in Botryllus schlosseri.
Articles (4-6) show the relationship between the microstructural behavior of the polymeric resins and their fusibility. Even with two peaks, providing a constant steam temperature is not easy because heat transfer takes place when steam enters the mold.
The colonies were explanted from the shells, reared in the laboratory, and subsequently tested for fusibility. We observed fusion between 4.4% of co-occurring colonies and 1.8% of colonies from different shells--frequencies that do not differ significantly.
[M]ost of the simple Ideas, that make up our complex Ideas of Substances, when truly considered, are only Powers, however we are apt to take them for positive Qualities; v.g., the greatest part of the Ideas, that make our complex Idea of Gold, are Yellowness, great Weight, Ductility, Fusibility, and Solubility, in Aqua Regia, etc.

He also directed PHE and Irrigation department to prepare fusibility report to build new dams in suitable location through compiling data of flash flood.
These findings indicate that (1) agonistic interactions do not always result in the elimination of inferior competitors, (2) colonies may increase production of immature gonozooids--an investment in future reproduction--as a result of growth limitation by conspecifics, and (3) ontogenetic changes in allorecognition-mediated fusibility may be due in part to heavily size-dependent fitness consequences of non-fusion.
The blowpipe was one of the most important analytical tools for identifying metallic elements by their different physical reactions (fusibility, volume and color change etc.).
The session decided to publish Bostan Economic Zones fusibility through PandD Department and send to the Federal Government for approval.
