Losing sight of the Forest for the trees: Why clinical laboratories need to perform their own interference studies.


Actual European forest management by region, tree species and owner based on 714,000 re-measured trees in national forest inventories.

European forests have a long record of management. However, the diversity of the current forest management across nations, tree species and owners, is hardly understood. Often when trying to simulate future forest resources under alternative futures, simply the yield table style of harvesting is applied. It is now crucially important to come to grips with actual forest management, now that demand for wood is increasing and the EU Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry Regulation has been adopted requiring '...

Laboratory Safety in Parasitology Laboratory.

Working in a laboratory is very difficult and needs special attention. Laboratory workers can be exposed to numerous potential hazards including chemical, biological, physical, and radioactive. That is why it is really important to follow the working principles in laboratories for the sake of the lab analyzers and others who work with them in the lab. Laboratory safety includes the use of certain laboratory rules, methods, infrastructures, and devices during work to protect the working person and the workin...


NDVI-derived forest area change and its driving factors in China.

China harbors diversified forest types, from tropical rainforest to boreal coniferous forest, and has implemented large-scale reforestation/afforestation programs over the past several decades. However, little information is available on changes in China's forest area and the causes. In this study, we used the classified forest distribution thematic map derived from Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) datasets and a revised IPAT model to examine China's forest area change and the possible driving ...

Cs and K annual fluxes in a cropland and forest ecosystems twenty-four years after the Chernobyl accident.

Biological cycles of the Chernobyl originated cesium-137 (Cs, radiocesium) and the natural potassium (K) in oak, birch, and pine forest, and wheat cropland in Russian Federation, approximately 500 km northeast of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, were subject to a multiyear monitoring. By 2010, the annual return of Cs from forest vegetation to the soil in dead tree components still exceeds its annual accumulation in the tree phytomass by a factor of 4-6, apparently due to residual surface contamination i...

Moisture content estimation of forest litter based on remote sensing data.

As a fine fuel, forest litter plays an important role in fire danger rating systems, so forest litter moisture data are necessary and meaningful for fire risk management and prevention. An optical remote sensing technique can provide continuous and regional data for litter moisture estimates, but such an approach is restricted in separating the background reflectance of the forest floor from pixel reflectance because the litter moisture information is included only in background reflectance while pixel refl...

Payments for ecosystem services in Mexico reduce forest fragmentation.

Forest fragmentation can lead to habitat reduction, edge increase, and exposure to disturbances. A key emerging policy to protect forests is payments for ecosystem services (PES), which offers compensation to landowners for environmental stewardship. Mexico was one of the first countries to implement a broad-scale PES program, enrolling over 2.3 Mha by 2010. However, Mexico's PES did not completely eliminate deforestation in enrolled parcels and could have increased incentives to hide deforestation in ways ...

Optimization of laboratory procedures for intrauterine insemination: survey of methods in relation to clinical outcome.

There is a wide practice variation of used methods and outcomes in IUI in fertility laboratories. Standardization of the IUI procedure is important for reducing inconsistency among laboratories in counseling infertile couples and in pregnancy results. The aim of the study was to evaluate the currently used laboratory procedures of IUI in Dutch fertility laboratories and their effect on IUI pregnancy results. Additionally, the methods for semen analysis (SA) were evaluated, as SA is related to IUI in terms o...

The influence of spatial and temporal discontinuities of forest habitats on the current presence of flightless saproxylic beetles.

Flightless saproxylic beetles were selected in order to study the impact of temporal and spatial discontinuity of forests. They were chosen because: (1) they are unable to fly, making them dispersal-limited species, (2) they have a saproxylic diet, which means they are closely linked to the forest, and (3), they have rarely been studied. Forest temporal continuity was expected to be the main factor explaining the presence of these species, modulated by the past and present amount of forest in the surroundin...

Challenges in the analysis of novel flame retardants in indoor dust: results of the INTERFLAB 2 interlaboratory evaluation.

The Interlaboratory Study of Novel Flame Retardants (INTERFLAB 2) was conducted by 20 laboratories in 12 countries to test the precision and accuracy of the analysis of 24 "novel" flame retardants (NFRs). Laboratories analyzed NFRs in injection-ready test mixtures, in extracts of residential dust, and in residential dust to evaluate the influence of dust handling and extraction. For test mixtures, mean reported concentrations of PBT, PBEB, EH-TBB, TBBPA, TBDP-TAZTO, TBOEP, α-TBCO, β-DBE-DBCH, and total HB...

Multiple forest attributes underpin the supply of multiple ecosystem services.

Trade-offs and synergies in the supply of forest ecosystem services are common but the drivers of these relationships are poorly understood. To guide management that seeks to promote multiple services, we investigated the relationships between 12 stand-level forest attributes, including structure, composition, heterogeneity and plant diversity, plus 4 environmental factors, and proxies for 14 ecosystem services in 150 temperate forest plots. Our results show that forest attributes are the best predictors of...

Direct and cascading effects of landscape structure on tropical forest and non-forest frugivorous birds.

Global biodiversity is increasingly threatened by land-use change, but the direct and indirect drivers of species diversity in human-modified tropical landscapes are poorly known. Forest-dependent species are expected to be particularly sensitive to changes in landscape composition (e.g., forest loss) and configuration (e.g., increase of forest edges), both directly and indirectly through cascading landscape effects on local patterns of forest structure and resource availability. In contrast, non-forest-dep...

Factors affecting forest area change in Southeast Asia during 1980-2010.

While many tropical countries are experiencing rapid deforestation, some have experienced forest transition (FT) from net deforestation to net reforestation. Numerous studies have identified causative factors of FT, among which forest scarcity has been considered as a prerequisite for FT. In fact, in SE Asia, the Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam, which experienced FT since 1990, exhibited a lower remaining forest area (30±8%) than the other five countries (68±6%, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, and...

Sampling system for estimating woody debris in an urban mixed tropical forest.

Woody debris, defined as standing and downed deadwood, consists in an essential component of the forest carbon stock. However, few studies have been carried out to get an efficient and accurate sampling procedure for estimating it. This work proposes two methodologies to estimate the woody debris volume in a Brazilian mixed tropical forest: 1) two-stage systematic sampling, using a mixed methodology, in which the Strand's method is applied to standing dead trees and stumps, and line intercept sampling is us...

Proficiency testing for the detection of Middle East respiratory syndrome-coronavirus demonstrates global capacity to detect MERS-CoV.

The first reported case of Middle East respiratory syndrome-coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection was identified in Saudi Arabia in September 2012, since which time there have been over 2,000 laboratory-confirmed cases, including 750 deaths in 27 countries. Nucleic acid testing (NAT) is the preferred method for the detection of MERS-CoV. A single round of a Proficiency Testing Program (PTP) was used to assess the capability of laboratories globally to accurately detect the presence of MERS-CoV using NAT. A panel...

Comparison of the phytochemical profiles of five native plant species in two different forest formations.

The expression of chemical compounds by individual plants of the same species in different locations may be affected by abiotic factors resulting in differences in the production of allelopathic compounds. The objective of this study was to compare the phytochemical profiles of plant species from two different forest formations in the state of Paraná, Brazil. The forest formations were Seasonal Semideciduous Forest (SSF) and Lowland Ombrophilous Dense Forest (LODF), and the five study species were Jacarand...

Consensus on BCR-ABL1 reporting in chronic myeloid leukaemia in the UK.

For patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML), treatment guidelines recommend monitoring response to treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) by testing the BCR-ABL1 fusion gene transcript level using reverse transcriptase quantitative polymerase chain reaction. Despite recent efforts to standardise protocols for BCR-ABL1 testing, some variability remains among laboratories in the UK regarding the techniques used and the approach to reporting results. This increases the risk of misinterpretation...

Public perceptions about climate change mitigation in British Columbia's forest sector.

The role of forest management in mitigating climate change is a central concern for the Canadian province of British Columbia. The successful implementation of forest management activities to achieve climate change mitigation in British Columbia will be strongly influenced by public support or opposition. While we now have increasingly clear ideas of the management opportunities associated with forest mitigation and some insight into public support for climate change mitigation in the context of sustainable...

Will Forest Size Structure Follow the -2 Power-Law Distribution under Ideal Demographic Equilibrium State?

Scaling relations formed in forest development processes are fairly important for understanding and predicting forest dynamics. During self-thinning of a relatively even-sized forest, tree abundance will decrease with an increase in average tree size, forming the size-abundance relation (SAR); while for a size-structured forest under the demographic equilibrium state, the frequency of trees also varies with size classes in a similar pattern, manifesting as the size-frequency distribution (SFD). In the metab...

Biodiversity thresholds in invertebrate communities: The responses of dung beetle subgroups to forest loss.

Extinction thresholds have been predicted to be critical values of habitat loss in which an abrupt reduction in populations occurs through the interaction between reduced habitat and increased isolation in the landscape. In communities, extinction thresholds are referred to as 'biodiversity thresholds'. The biodiversity threshold values documented so far occur between 30% and 50% of habitat cover in landscapes. However, the assessment of biodiversity thresholds has mainly focused on vertebrate and plant com...

Forest resources of nations in relation to human well-being.

A universal turnaround has been detected in many countries of the World from shrinking to expanding forests. The forest area of western Europe expanded already in the 19th century. Such early trends of forest resources cannot be associated with the rapid rise of atmospheric carbon dioxide nor with the anthropogenic climate change, which have taken place since the mid 20th century. Modern, most recent spatial patterns of forest expansions and contractions do not correlate with the geography of climate trends...

Effects of temperature on soil organic carbon mineralization rate and enzyme kinetic para-meters in temperate and subtropical forests.

We examined the effects of temperature on SOC mineralization rate (C) and enzyme kinetic parameters in soils of two different latitudinal forests, i.e., broad-leaved Korean pine forest in Changbai Mountain at higher latitude and evergreen broad-leaved forest in Dinghu Mountain at lower latitude. The results showed that the soil C increased with temperature, and the C and Q10(C) of the Changbai Mountain forest soil were higher than those of the Dinghu Mountain forest soil. The maximal rates of velocity (V) a...

First inter-laboratory study of a Supercritical Fluid Chromatography method for the determination of pharmaceutical impurities.

Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC) has known a strong regain of interest for the last 10 years, especially in the field of pharmaceutical analysis. Besides the development and validation of the SFC method in one individual laboratory, it is also important to demonstrate its applicability and transferability to various laboratories around the world. Therefore, an inter-laboratory study was conducted and published for the first time in SFC, to assess method reproducibility, and evaluate whether this chr...
