Heavy metal concentrations in tree rings to prove prolonged existence and hypothesized health impacts - CKDu

Tree rings that occurred due to seasonality or drought are used to estimate the age of tropical and temperate trees [1]. The heavy metal concentrations in tree rings are used to study the accumulation history by means of tree age [2]. CKDu or... continue reading

Average difference entropy

Calculating Shannon entropy on octet streams can be confusing, especially with those who lack a background in mathematics. It's also not necessary in many cases. A more intuitive calculation, which is also easier to implement, involves calculating... continue reading

In all scientific and engineering disciplines, the design of experiment is used to create experimental plans. Particularly in industrial experimentation, methods are available that are hardly or not at all used in agriculture. For example, the... continue reading

Tri-allelic SNPs outperform functional candidates for biochemical profile in Cannabis

Genomic technologies have revolutionized the fields of evolutionary biology and genetics, bringing with it the promise of our understanding of the functional basis and inheritance of key traits of interest. On the other hand, the stupendous amount... continue reading

Open Source Animal Tracking Device for Cattle

Grazing plays a central role in nature conservation, for example, grazing animals preserve biodiversity in the stand and the animals' droppings provide a habitat for insects. The development of animal-guided grazing requires geodata enriched with... continue reading

Pattern Mining in Grassland Science

This article presents ideas on how pattern mining can be applied in grassland science, where there is a high demand for rule pattern recognition, evaluation, and selection. In principle, vegetation data are well suited for pattern mining because... continue reading

Body Image Compensation

I here describe a solution to a problem in the area of optics. Worldwide, there is concern over the effects of the use of smartphones, tablets, computers, and webcams on body image. The use of cameras in these devices reinforces a [thin... continue reading

Cultural impacts of the biodiversity crisis and our disconnection from nature

Dramatic declines in global biodiversity -- i.e., the Biodiversity Crisis -- continue to motivate research on the causes and consequences of environmental degradation. High profile papers on declines in insect diversity and abundance, for example,... continue reading
