This paper investigates whether the degree of exposure of the parent to the subsidiaries is an important determinant for the corporate structure and the related financial stability of Bank Holding Companies (BHCs). We ...
Effects of extreme drought on specific leaf area of grassland species: A meta-analysis of experimental studies in temperate and sub-Mediterranean systems
Here, we conducted a meta-analysis of experimental drought manipulation studies using rainout shelters in five sites of natural grassland ecosystems of Europe. The single studies assess the effects of extreme drought on ...
Design and experimental test of refractive secondary optics on the electrical performance of a 3-junction cell used in CPV systems
This work analyzes and compares the effects of the secondary optics on the performance of a triple junction solar cell used in a compact HCPV prototype unit. The HCPV system is composed of triple junction III-V (Ga0.5In0.5P, ...
Researching Individual Satisfaction with Group Decisions in Tourism: Experimental Evidence
The goal of the present study was to investigate how satisfied individuals are with the final outcome of a group decision-making process on a joint travel destination. Using an experimental paradigm (Ntotal = 200, Ngroups = 55) ...
Assessing the suitability of biomass ashes from combustion in boilers as soil fertilizers: statistical entropy analysis and introduction of the Potassium Utilization Potential Factor
Utilizing agricultural residues for energy and heating purposes is gaining momentum in the EU and even more in areas where biomass is a fundamental pillar of the economy like, e.g. South Tyrol in Northern Italy. In previous ...
