Extremely frequent bee visits increase pollen deposition but reduce drupelet set in raspberry
1. Production of many flowering crops often benefits from elevated pollinator diversity and abundance. Nevertheless, the opposite relationship may arise if bees impair fruit or seed production and/or quality by damaging ...
Visiting-economists through Hirschman`s eyes
(ROUTLEDGE JOURNALS, TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2011)
Since the nineteenth century, Latin America and other poor areas of the world received periodical visits from missions of economic experts. This paper analyzes the picture that Hirschman draws of these money doctors, whose ...
One-Visit Versus Two-Visit Root Canal Treatment: Effectiveness in the Removal of Endotoxins and Cultivable Bacteria
(Elsevier B.V., 2013-08-01)
Introduction: This clinical study was conducted to compare the effectiveness of 1-visit versus 2-visit root canal treatment in removing endotoxins and cultivable bacteria from primarily infected root canals. Methods: ...
Does supplemental photodynamic therapy optimize the disinfection of bacteria and endotoxins in one-visit and two-visit root canal therapy? A randomized clinical trial
Aim To evaluate the effectiveness of supplemental photodynamic therapy (PDT) in optimizing the removal of bacteria and endotoxins from primarily infected root canals after one-visit and two-visit treatments. Methodology ...
Implementing a community model of mental health care in Chile: impact on psychiatric emergency visits
(American Psychiatric Association Publishing, 2017)
Objective: The community model of mental health care (CMMHC) is recommended as the bestway to organizemental health care, but evidence of its successful implementation and effectiveness is scarce, particularly in resource-poor ...
Functional role of long-lived flowers in preventing pollen limitation in a high elevation outcrossing species
(Oxford university press, 2017)
Low pollinator visitation in harsh environments may lead to pollen limitation which can threaten population persistence. Consequently, avoidance of pollen limitation is expected in outcrossing species subjected to habitually ...
Quantity versus quality: identifying the most effective pollinators of the hummingbird-pollinated Vriesea rodigasiana (Bromeliaceae)
(Springer WienWienAustria, 2013)
Erratic pollination, high selfing levels and their correlates and consequences in an altitudinally widespread above-tree-line species in the high Andes of Chile
(GAUTHIER-VILLARS/EDITIONS ELSEVIER, 2006-09)
Unfavorable temperatures and weather conditions for biotic pollination in above-tree-line alpine habitats predict self-compatibility, high levels of autogamy and small flower size ("autogamy reproductive assurance hypothesis"), ...
