Seasonal and interpopulational phenotypic variation in morphology and sexual signals of Podarcis liolepis lizards

Widespread species often show extensive phenotypic variation due to the contrasting abiotic and biotic factors that shape selective pressures in different environments. In this context, the gradual and predictable patterns of variation in climatic and environmental conditions found in mountain areas offer a great opportunity to explore intraspecific phenotypic variation. For...

Evaluation of a rapid immunodiagnostic test kit for detection of African lyssaviruses from brain material

A rapid immunodiagnostic test kit was evaluated against a selection of isolates of lyssavirus genotypes occurring in Africa. The test was carried out in parallel comparison with the fluorescent antibody test (FAT) and isolates representing previously established phylogenetic groups from each genotype were included. The specificity of the rapid immunodiagnostic test compared...

Normalidad y diferencia en la escuela: Diseño de un proyecto de investigación social desde el dilema político-epistemológico

This article presents a reflection on the articulation between the political and epistemological dimensions of a research study focused on the production of normalcy and difference in school contexts. Our research undertakes that what we call "difference" is not a natural fact neither an isolated cultural construction. Rather, it is an ideological production in relation to an...

Arylation of β,γ-unsaturated lactones by a Heck-Matsuda reaction: an unexpected route to aryldiazene butenolides and pyridazinones

The palladium catalysed coupling of aryldiazonium salts with β-γ-unsaturated lactones under basic conditions has been investigated. Both (3H)-furanone and α-angelicalactone were evaluated as substrates in the Heck Matsuda reaction but both failed to afford the desired arylated butenolides. Under basic conditions, β-γ-unsaturated lactones generate highly nucleophilic enolates that...

Recurrent palaeo-wildfires in a Cisuralian coal seam: A palaeobotanical view on high-inertinite coals from the Lower Permian of the Paraná Basin, Brazil

Distribution and abundance of charcoal in coal seams (in form of pyrogenic macerals of the inertinites group) have been considered as a reliable tool to interpret the local and regional palaeo-wildfire regimes in peat-forming depositional environments. Although the occurrence of inertinites is globally well documented for the Late Palaeozoic, the description of palaeobotanical...

Chemical composition of sage (Salvia officinalis L.) essential oil from the Rio de Janeiro State (Brazil)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the chemical composition of the essential oil from fresh leaves of sage (Salvia officinalis L.) from Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro State, for international trade. The oil was isolated by hydrodistillation in a Clevenger-type apparatus and analyzed through a combination of GC-FID and GC-MS. The yield was 2.3 % on dry basis. Forty-seven...

Een erfrechtelijk geschil binnen de familie Haller von Hallerstein (1595-1603): Van eenheid naar verscheidenheid binnen het West-Europese recht

In 1595, in a contentious procedure, in which the executors mentioned below were the defendants, papal judges decided that the monastic vows taken by Loijsa Haller von Hallerstein, a Cistercian nun, were null and void. Accordingly, she was capable of entering into matrimony and taking the half to which she was entitled of the goods of her deceased parents. These goods were...

Estudio a nivel laboratorio de la Degradación atípica en un refractario tipo SiO2 utilizado en hornos de inducción

The refractory degradation on induction furnace walls at different points was studied. A SiO2 (98.8%) base refractory was analyzed with two different slag chemical composition through crucible and dipping laboratory degradation test and also applying an asymmetric modeling. The slag, refractory structure and slag penetration was analyzed by optical microscopy using reflecting...

EL DESARROLLO DE LOS PRINCIPIOS CONSTITUCIONALES TRIBUTARIOS DE CARÁCTER MATERIAL EN LA JURISPRUDENCIA DEL TRIBUNAL CONSTITUCIONAL

This paper seeks to identify the intrinsic ideas in the chilean constitutional jurisprudence about the material principles of taxation, particularly, equality and non-confiscatory tax. It is addded the principle of economic capacity, as a necessity of the research program. To achieve the goal, some elements of discourse analysis are used. But, essentially, to seek to contribute...

A 42-year-old lady presented to emergency department with a 3 days history of right-sided abdominal pain. She was afebrile, haemodynamically unstable and the initial diagnosis was acute abdomen with unknown pathology. The CT abdomen/pelvis done, which showed well-defined fatty texture at right lower quadrant suggestive of an epiploic appendagitis and left adnexal cyst. The...

Psychometric evaluation of the Korean version of the Hepatitis B Quality of Life Questionnaire

Purpose The purpose of this study was to conduct a psychometric evaluation of the Korean version of the Hepatitis B Quality of Life Questionnaire (K-HBQOL), which is designed to assess the quality of life of patients with the hepatitis B virus (HBV). Methods The K-HBQOL was developed by converting the original English version to Korean using a back-and-forth translation method...

Realisation, instantiation and individuation: some thoughts on identity in youth justice conferencing

This paper is concerned with identity and how it can be modelled in SFL, with special reference to the roles played by young offenders in Australia's youth justice conferences. These conferences function as a restorative justice alternative to courtroom-based retributive justice. It is proposed that a hierarchy of individuation be established, alongside and complementing...

VALIDEZ EN LA INVESTIGACIÓN IMAGINOLÓGICA

It is common to note that the concept of validity is given added significance in the realm of knowledge and scientific finding dissemination, despite being an attribute of value interpretation of measuring instruments. Improper management of this concept generates confusion and may lead to a false legitimation of scientific inferences. Through this review, the authors intend to...

Left Pan-Hippocampal Low Grade Glioma—2-Stage Transsylvian Transventricular and Paramedian Supracerebellar Transtentorial Approaches: 2-Dimensional Operative Video

The surgical goal for low-grade gliomas (LGGs) is to maximize resection while minimizing morbidity. Pan-hippocampal LGGs extend from the hippocampal head to the hippocampal tail, and involve the parahippocampal gyrus and uncus. Given their anteroposterior extension, they cannot be completely removed with 1 single approach, requiring a 2-stage front-to-back operation.

Histories of the Unprecedented: Climate Change, Environmental Transformations, and Displacement in the United States

While the speed of current climatic changes is unprecedented, their ramifications are not. Floods and droughts, sea-level rise, advancing glaciers, and desertification do have a history, and the same is true for the social causes and aftermaths of such extreme natural events. Therefore, history provides a fertile field for the analysis of how societies have dealt with severe...
