  • The second section of the book involves the regional biogeography of individual taxa. This section begins with a chapter by Alberto Taylor and his colleagues on the biogeography of cycads in Central America. Their natural history and experimental ecological methods integrate the evolutionary context of the cycad lineage with contemporary autecology, and they elucidate biogeographic patterns and conservation priorities, the latter of which are under-appreciated but pressingly important in Central America.

  • But this is just one measure of the failure of efforts to prevent vertical transmission. Following the global commitment at UNGASS in 2001, UN agencies designed a comprehensive program to prevent vertical transmission. This program was based on promoting a woman’s right to a continuum of care starting with sexual and reproductive health and treatment through to psychosocial and nutritional support.

  • In the previous sub-section we have described the evolution of yields and interest rate spreads in 2002 using weekly data. If the information revealed by policy events is processed efficiently in capital markets, it may nevertheless be necessary to look at higher frequencies to detect any impact of fiscal policy events. In this section we therefore focus more carefully on specific events using daily data. As an illustration, we select two periods for a closer look.

  • One of the main tasks of economics is to explode the basic in- flationary fallacy that confused the thinking ofauthors and statesmen from the days ofJohn Law down to those of Lord Keynes. There cannot be any question of monetary reconstruction and economic recovery as long as such fables as that of the blessings of 'expansion- ism' form an integral part ofofficial doctrine and guide the economic policies of the nations. None of the arguments that economics advances against the inflationist and expansionist doctrine is likely to impress demagogues.

  • By addressing both cases, we give Web content publishers a chance to serve RDF data the way they want while still enabling Web content consumers to take matter into their own hands if the content they want is not served in RDF. This solution gives consumers benefits even when there are still few web sites that serve RDF. At the same time, we believe that it might give pro- ducers incentive to serve RDF in order to control how their data is received by Piggy Bank users, as well as to offer competitive advantage over other web sites. In order to achieve...

It links the essential principles and techniques of managing projects to a “wisdom” approach for working with complex, people-based activities.

  • Mercury released through sewage plants and storm sewers often contaminates the sediments of lakes and rivers on a local scale. However, most of the human-generated mercury that enters the aquatic system is deposited through the atmosphere in rain, snow or attached to small dust particles. Mercury also enters lakes directly from natural geologic sources. In lakes that have been created by hydro dams, very high levels of mercury are often found as a result of natural bacterial processes that become greatly accelerated by the flooding of land and decomposition of vegetation.
