Frugivory by Wintering Hermit Thrush In Louisiana

Cheryl M. Strong, David R. Brown, Philip C. Stouffer
2005 Southeastern naturalist (Steuben, Me.)  
We investigated the role of fruit availability in the diet of wintering Catharus guttatus Pallas (Hermit Thrushes) in southeastern Louisiana.  ...  Average fruit availability was low in all habitats in Nov-Dec (9.31 ± 2.22 fruits/m 2 ), and increased to a peak in January (25.14 ± 3.39 fruits/m 2 ).  ...  Fruit availability in all habitats then declined to their lowest level by April (1.31 ± 0.38 fruits/m 2 ).  ...

A Java class library for simulating peri-operative processes

Philip M. Troy, Lawrence Rosenberg
2009 Proceedings of the 2009 Winter Simulation Conference (WSC)  
To address the mismatch between supply and demand for peri-operative capacity, senior management of the Department of Surgical Services at the Sir Mortimer B. Davis Jewish General Hospital in Montreal designed and developed a discrete event simulation platform for modeling its peri-operative processes. Design goals included ensuring that the platform could be used for both long-term capacity planning and short-term scheduling, that it could be readily modified and extended, that it be

The primary outcomes achieved were the development of a Java class library to support the development of peri-operative process simulation models, and a preliminary model, built with the class library, that is currently being used to help understand the need for surgical beds.

Control ofArabidopsisRoot Development

Jalean J. Petricka, Cara M. Winter, Philip N. Benfey
2012 Annual Review of Plant Biology  
The Arabidopsis root has been the subject of intense research over the past decades. This research has led to significantly improved understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying root development. Key insights into the specification of individual cell types, cell patterning, growth and differentiation, branching of the primary root, and responses of the root to the environment have been achieved. Transcription factors and plant hormones play key regulatory roles. Recently, mechanisms

Root gene regulatory networks controlling root development have been reconstructed from genome-wide profiling experiments, revealing novel molecular connections and models. Future refinement of these models will lead to a more complete description of the complex molecular interactions that give rise to a simple growing root. Keywords embryogenesis; radial patterning; developmental zones; hormone; lateral root; gene regulatory network organization and can be easily grown in nonsoil media, which facilitates analysis. Knowledge of Arabidopsis root development is derived from work over the past 25 years, which began with classical genetic experiments and has been accelerated by the use of

Community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) are strains of the bacterium S. aureus that are responsible for skin and soft tissue, blood, bone, and other infections that can be life threatening. CA-MRSA strains are resistant to standard antibiotics related to penicillins and have a high prevalence in the general community, as well as in healthcare facilities. CA-MRSA presents novel challenges for computational epidemiological modeling compared to other commonly

CA-MRSA challenges include modeling activities and contact processes of individuals in which direct skin contact can be an important infection pathway, estimating disease transmission parameters based on limited data, and representing behavioral responses of individuals to the disease and healthcare interventions. We are developing a fine-grained agent-based model of CA-MRSA for the Chicago metropolitan area. This paper describes how we are modeling CA-MRSA disease processes based on variants of standard epidemiological models and individual agent-based approaches.
