The multinomial model showed that there was a significant interaction between RH and isofemale lines (LR = 73.14; df = 10; P < 0.001, Table 2; see Supplemental information), and hence there are differences between the isolines in the percentages of flying, walking, and non-flying wasps.
Figure 11 shows the isolines for the point safety factor of the rock mass around the midsection in the collapse tunnel section before collapse.
Figures 10(a) and 10(b) show the distribution of the Mises stress isolines with the different particle size random model and same particle size random model in the case of the uniaxial tensile test with displacement x = 2 [micro]m; models are created with four RVEs in the x and y directions in an RVE array.
However, the isoline for MFB50 is shifted by ~1.5 bar to lower loads, indicating that the higher knock tendency with higher CR cannot be compensated by higher water/fuel-ratios.
This technique assumes that the PQ interval corresponds to the isoline of the ECG so that a nonzero signal in this interval must be due to baseline wander.
Annual average of the modeled surface chlorophyll (a) and SeaWIFS (b) in mg Chl/[m.sup.3] with the isoline of 1 mg Chl/[m.sup.3].
The major principal stress isoline, minor principal stress isoline, and stress level isoline during the completion and impoundment periods are shown in Figures 12-17.
The result of this measurement is presented as seismic velocity section, it means isoline curves of Vp seismic velocities (Fig.

(Roundup Ready means that the corn resists Monsanto's herbicide Roundup, so cornfields can be sprayed with Roundup, killing the weeds and leaving the corn alive.) In addition to the Roundup Ready corn that was sprayed by Roundup, as a control they used what's known as a "near isoline." A near isoline means corn that is genetically identical to the Roundup Ready corn, with the exception of the Roundup Ready gene.
