Ecophysiology of Antarctic marine ectotherms: Limits to life


, : Ecophysiology of Antarctic marine ectotherms: Limits to life. Polar Biology 25(1): 31-40

The ecophysiology of Antarctic marine ectotherms is an area of active research. This review of recent progress covers metabolism, mitochondrial function, aerobic scope, growth and development. Energetics is shown to be a central feature of adaptation to temperature, with mitochondrial function and tissue oxygen supply important in setting limits to organismal size and performance.

We consider the problem of reconstructing CAT imagery by the direct Fourier method (DFM) when not all view data are available. To restore the missing information we use the method of projections onto convex sets (POCS). POCS is a recursive image r...

In the aftermath of the Lockerbie air disaster, identification of the victims (plane occupants and local residents) was established by two primary methods: odontology and dactylography. Scottish law requires corroboration of evidence of identity,...

We report a direct measurement of temperature in a shocked metal using Doppler broadening of neutron resonances. The 21.1-eV resonance in 182W was used to measure the temperature in molybdenum shocked to approximately 63 GPa. An explosively launch...
