Sampling Error in Relation to Cyst Nematode Population Density Estimation in Small Field Plots

Cyst nematodes are serious plant-parasitic pests which could cause severe yield losses and extensive damage. Since there is still very little information about error of population density estimation in small field plots, this study contributes to the broad issue of population density assessment. It was shown that there was no significant difference between cyst counts of five or seven bulk samples taken per each 1-m2 plot, if average cyst count per examined plot exceeds 75 cysts per 100 g of

Organoleptic Properties Remote Sensing and LifeTime Prediction along the Perishables Goods Supply-Chain

Nowadays, two of the most compelling challenges in the field of food safety and certification are the reduction of the multitude of food losses and wastes in the supply chain and the improvement of certification and monitoring procedures during each stage of production. The aim of this paper is to propose an effective solution to both problems: a wireless sensor network (WSN) combined with a further data processing for real-time monitoring and shelf life prediction.

Axonal outgrowth stimulation after alginate/mesenchymal stem cell therapy in injured rat spinal cord

Despite strong efforts in the field, spinal cord trauma still belongs among the untreatable neurological conditions at present. Given the complexity of the nervous system, an effective therapy leading to complete recovery has still not been found. One of the potential tools for supporting tissue regeneration may be found in mesenchymal stem cells, which possess anti-inflammatory and trophic factor-producing properties. In the context of transplantations, application of degradable biomaterials
