Influence of diet on the distribution of nitrogen isotopes in animals

The influence of diet on the distribution of nitrogen isotopes in animals was investigated by analyzing animals grown in the laboratory on diets of constant nitrogen isotopic composition.The isotopic composition of the nitrogen in an animal reflects the...

The quickhull algorithm for convex hulls

The convex hull of a set of points is the smallest convex set that contains the points. This article presents a practical convex hull algorithm that combines the two-dimensional Quickhull algorithm with the general-dimension Beneath-Beyond Algorithm....

American apartheid : segregation and the making of the underclass

This article argues that racial segregation is crucial to explaining the emergence of the urban underclass during the 1970s. A strong interaction between rising rates of poverty and high levels of residential segregation explains where, why and in which...

PHYLOGENIES AND THE COMPARATIVE METHOD

Recent years have seen a growth in numerical studies using the comparative method. The method usually involves a comparison of two phenotypes across a range of species or higher taxa, or a comparison of one phenotype with an environmental variable. Objectives...

Sirolimus-Eluting Stents versus Standard Stents in Patients with Stenosis in a Native Coronary Artery

background Preliminary reports of studies involving simple coronary lesions indicate that a sirolimus-eluting stent significantly reduces the risk of restenosis after percutaneous coronary revascularization. methods We conducted a randomized, double-blind...

Tamoxifen for Prevention of Breast Cancer: Report of the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project P-1 Study

Background: The finding of a decrease in contralateral breast cancer incidence following tamoxifen administration for adjuvant therapy led to the concept that the drug might play a role in breast cancer prevention. To test this hypothesis, the National...

Mentawai fault zone off Sumatra: A new key to the geodynamics of western Indonesia

The geodynamic evolution of the western part of the Sunda arc is controlled by the change from frontal subduction of the Indo-Australian plate along Java to oblique subduction along Sumatra. This obliquity gives rise to the Sumatra fault zone that links...

Identification of the cystic fibrosis gene: chromosome walking and jumping

An understanding of the basic defect in the inherited disorder cystic fibrosis requires cloning of the cystic fibrosis gene and definition of its protein product. In the absence of direct functional information, chromosomal map position is a guide for...
