Iceland's Central Highlands: nature conservation, ecotourism, and energy resource utilization

, : Iceland's Central Highlands: nature conservation, ecotourism, and energy resource utilization. Proceedings Rocky Mountain Research Station, USDA Forest Service (RMRS-P-26): 54-63

Iceland's natural resources include an abundance of geothermal energy and hydropower, of which only 10-15% is currently being utilized. These are clean, renewable sources of energy. The cost to convert these resources to electricity is relatively low, making them attractive and highly marketable for industrial development, particularly for heavy industry. About 100 proposed power projects are in the process of being evaluated under the Master Plan for Hydro and Geothermal Energy Resources.

Its viability on core needle biopsy samples and correlations with histologic grading. Background. Pathologic staging and grading are the most important prognostic factors in prostatic cancer. Unfortunately, pathologic staging needs to be evaluated by surgical procedures; moreover, the proposed grading systems are largely based upon...

We investigated expression of DNA-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs) and Ku80 in developing human brain, both of which have been suggested to be involved in the repair of DNA double-strand break (DSB). Their expressions were wel...
