  5. Suberin is a lipid and phenolic cell wall heteropolymer found in roots and other organs of all vascular plants. Suberin plays a critical role in plant water relations and protecting plants from biotic and abiotic stresses. Here we describe a…
  6. Exposure of plants to vehicle exhaust emissions and road-induced changes to soil biogeochemistry and hydrology can lead to shifts in plant composition in calcareous grasslands. Mixed effects models were used to identify relationships between plant…
  7. Electrical machines and power-electronic systems for high-power wind energy generation applications: Part I – market penetration, current technology and advanced machine systems
  8. This paper analyses the relationship between productive efficiency and online-social-networks (OSN) in Spanish telecommunications firms. A data-envelopment-analysis (DEA) is used and several indicators of business “social Media” activities are…
  9. The organizational value of an electronic knowledge repository depends on the degree to which it offers high quality knowledge to its users. Validation procedures are implemented to monitor and ensure the quality of submitted content. However, if…
