Large lakes are important because of their size and
ecological distinctiveness, as well as their economic and
cultural value. Optimal management of them requires a
proper understanding of anthropogenic impacts, both on
the lake ecosystems, as such and on the services they
provide for society. The specific structural and functional
properties of large lakes, e.g. morphology,
hydrography, biogeochemical cycles, and food-web
structure, are all directly related to their size.
The authoritative compendium of facts, statistics, photographs, and analysis that defines baseball in its formative first decades.
This comprehensive reference work covers the early years of major league baseball from the first game—May 4, 1871, a 2-0 victory for the Fort Wayne Kekiongas over the visiting Cleveland Forest City team—through the 1900 season. Baseball historian David Nemec presents complete team rosters and detailed player, manager, and umpire information, with a wealth of statistics to warm a fan’s heart.
Recent re-analyses of time series studies have highlighted a second important epidemiological
and statistical issue known as confounding bias. Pollution relative rate estimates for mortality=
morbidity could be confounded by observed and unobserved time-varying confounders (such as
weather variables, season, and in°uenza epidemics) that vary in a similar manner as the air pol-
lution and mortality=morbidity time series. To control for confounding bias, smooth functions of
time and temperature variables are included into the semi-parametric Poisson regression model....
Landslides happen frequently in moutainous region, especially in the rainy season in tropical zone like Vietnam. The landslide can cause severe impact on land use and human activities in the highlands. Therefore, determining the damage of landslide is meaningful for local land users and officials to propose the best land use types in the specific area. Based on the economic methods, the damage of landslide was analysed specifically in Maichau District, Hoabinh Province, Vietnam.
