Sustainable urban drainage: delineation of a scientific domain of knowledge production
Sustainable Urban Drainage emerged and gained prominence during the late 90s. Despite this progress, there is little uniformity in subjects and definition of terms within the overall sustainability theme. This tends to ...
Revisiting the Hewlett and Hibbert (1963) Hillslope Drainage Experiment and Modeling Effects of Decadal Pedogenic Processes and Leaky Soil Boundary Conditions
(American Geophysical Union, 2019-10-22)
Subsurface flow dominates water movement from hillslopes to streams in most forested headwater catchments. Hewlett and Hibbert (1963, https://doi.org/10.1029/JZ068i004p01081) constructed an idealized hillslope model (0.91 ...
Arm-specific dynamics of chromosome evolution in malaria mosquitoes
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2011-04-07)
Background: The malaria mosquito species of subgenus Cellia have rich inversion polymorphisms that correlate with environmental variables. Polymorphic inversions tend to cluster on the chromosomal arms 2R and 2L but not ...
Whole-Genome Resequencing of Seven Eggplant (Solanum melongena) and One Wild Relative (S. incanum) Accessions Provides New Insights and Breeding Tools for Eggplant Enhancement
Whole-genome resequencing provides information of great relevance for crop genetics, evolution, and breeding. Here, we present the first whole-genome resequencing study using seven eggplant (Solanum melongena) and one wild ...
Selective Histone Deacetylase 6 Inhibition Normalizes B Cell Activation and Germinal Center Formation in a Model of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Autoantibody production by plasma cells (PCs) plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The molecular pathways by which B cells become pathogenic PC secreting autoantibodies in SLE are ...
Scaling participation in payments for ecosystem services programs
Payments for ecosystem services programs have become common tools but most have failed to achieve wide-ranging conservation outcomes. The capacity for scale and impact increases when PES programs are designed through the ...
Can flaxseed lower cholesterol levels?
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 2017-10-13)
Provides information about flaxseed and how it might help with lowering cholesterol.
Modeling bacteria fate and transport in watersheds to support TMDLs
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2006)
Fecal contamination of surface waters is a critical water-quality issue, leading to human illnesses and deaths. Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), which set pollutant limits, are being developed to address fecal bacteria ...
