By Val H. Smith (auth.), J. Gwynfryn Jones (eds.)

Kevin Marshall is a difficult act to stick with. quantity thirteen of Advances in Microbial Ecology has been produced via a brand new editorial board, and we, the individuals of that board, are extremely joyful to find a way to pay tribute to Kevin's achievements. In his time as sequence Editor, the standard of the chapters submitted and the variety of subject material coated have ensured an increasing and extra encouraged readership. This represents a substantial success, given the expansion within the variety of evaluation volumes and the expanding tendency for journals to post evaluation articles. The success used to be reached not just via metic­ ulous realization to caliber and element but in addition via offering a discussion board for the expression of perspectives, info, and effects that might stimulate dialogue. Advances in Microbial Ecology will proceed to supply the sort of concentration, even if, as a result of the frequency of e-book, it can now not be conceivable to introduce a "reply" or "comment" part. even if we don't intentionally goal to supply a discussion board for controversy, we motivate hypothesis in keeping with sound clinical arguments. furthermore, we wish to inspire authors to provide chapters for attention. some time past, the volumes have mostly comprised invited chapters. With the easiest will on this planet, an article board of 4 can't declare enough insurance of one of these gigantic and quickly constructing study quarter. we might there­ fore welcome submission of define plans for chapters, which could be despatched to the Editor.

Ecology and Evolution of Flowers

The reproductive organs and mating biology of angiosperms express larger type than these of the other staff of organisms. plants and inflorescences also are the main varied constructions produced via angiosperms, and floral qualities offer one of the most compelling examples of evolution through traditional choice.

Finite Elemente in der Statik und Dynamik

Das Buch bildet die Grundlage für die Vorlesungsreihe „Finite Elemente“ und „Tragwerksdynamik“, die der Verfasser für Bauingenieur- und Maschinenbaustudenten des eight. und nine. Semesters gehalten hat. Es trägt dazu bei, die Fähigkeit des Ingenieurs zu stärken, reale Konstruktionen in FE-Modellen abzubilden sowie die Ergebnisse der Computerrechnungen vor dem Hintergrund FE-spezifischer Annahmen zu interpretieren.

Physicochemical factors such as pH and temperature, ecological factors such as predation also can have strong moderating effects. For example, the outcome of competition between the facultative chemolithotroph Thiobacillus sp. strain A2 and the obligate chemolithotroph Thiobacillus neopolitans was dependent on the culture pH (Smith and Kelly, 1979).
