Intraspecific phenotypic variability of plant functional traits in contrasting mountain grassland habitats
(Springer Verlag (Germany), 2013)
Empirical studies that link plants intraspecific variation to environmental conditions are almost lacking, despite their relevance in understanding mechanisms of plant adaptation, in predicting the outcome of environmental ...
Rock weathering creates oases of life in a High Arctic desert
(Wiley: 12 months, 2010)
During primary colonization of rock substrates by plants, mineral weathering is strongly accelerated under plant roots, but little is known on how it affects soil ecosystem development before plant establishment. Here we ...
Strategy for identification of Bacillus cereus and Bacillus thuringiensis strains closely related to Bacillus anthracis
(American Society for Microbiology, 2006)
Bacillus cereus strains that are genetically closely related to B. anthracis can display anthrax-like virulence traits (A. R. Hoffmaster et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 101:8449-8454, 2004). Hence, approaches that rapidly ...
Design of a scalable modular production system for a two-stage food service franchise system
The geographically distributed production of fresh food poses unique challenges to the production system design because of their stringent industry and logistics requirements. The purpose of this research is to examine the ...

(G I T O Verlag, 2011)
In einem hart umkämpften und äußerst dynamischen Marktumfeld gewinnt die Wandlungsfähigkeit für produzierende Unternehmen immer mehr an Bedeutung zur dauerhaften Sicherung der eigenen Überlebensfähigkeit. Der Wandlungsbedarf ...
Effect of the myostatin locus on muscle mass and intramuscular fat content in a cross between mouse lines selected for hypermuscularity
(BioMed Central, 2013)
Background This study is aimed at the analysis of genetic and physiological effects of myostatin on economically relevant meat quality traits in a genetic background of high muscularity. For this purpose, we generated ...
