A laboratory study of weather effects on the drying rate of jack pine litter

, : A laboratory study of weather effects on the drying rate of jack pine litter. Canadian Journal of Forest Research 9(2): 267-275

Temp., RH and wind were varied separately. Drying runs were carried out in a cabinet with controlled temp. and RH and also in the open laboratory. Most runs followed the exponential pattern, and the drying rates were measured in terms of the slope of the semilog graph of free m.c. versus time. The logarithm of this slope was found to be inversely proportional to the reciprocal of absolute temp.

Objective: Chymase released from activated mast cells has been shown to induce apoptosis of vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) in vitro. The proteolytic activity of chymase is essential for the proapoptotic effect, but the mechanism of chymase-in...

Research on cognitive impairment in chronic alcoholics has generally focused on pathology associated with organic brain damage. On the other hand, deficits more typical of the functional psychoses have been less explored, due to the absence of app...

Methyl glyoxal inhibits the growth of Escherichia coli in synchronous and asynchronous culture. The inhibition of growth is accompanied by immediate inhibition of protein synthesis and of the initiation of replication of DNA. When methyl glyoxal i...

Histidine-rich glycoprotein (HRG) is a heparin-binding glycoprotein present in plasma at 100microg/ml. A recent study revealed that HRG suppressed heparin-dependent basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF)-induced angiogenesis. Additionally, we repor...
