METHOD FOR DETERMINING THE MATURITY OF TOMATOES BASED ON THE CONTROL OF THEIR CHLOROPHYLL FLUORESCENCE INDUCTION

YURIY A. SUDNIK & MAHMUD A. ABDELHAMID
Conventional methods of tomato sorting are based on the external attributes of fruits, such as color, size, hardness, or other textural features. These methods do not take into account the internal qualities and texture of fruits, which therefore affects the sorting quality. The proposed method for sorting tomatoes based on the control of their induction of chlorophyll fl uorescence takes into account the internal structure and quality of tomatoes. During the experiment, the botanical Alcazar...

The reliability and validity of an Arabic version of the modified Japanese Orthopedic Association score for cervical myelopathy

Hany El Zahlawy, Shereen Fawaz, Heba Saber & Mohamed Elgebeily
Purpose: The modified Japanese Orthopedic Association score (mJOA) is considered as one of the most comprehensive scores in assessment of patients with cervical myelopathy. Hence, comes the need for providing a validated, translated and cross-culturally adapted versions in different languages in order to standardize patient’s evaluation. This study aims to translate and validate an Arabic version of the mJOA. Methods: 65 patients of variable age and etiologies for compressive cervical myelopathy were recruited. Forward and...

Data from: Factors related to time of stroke onset versus time of hospital arrival: A SITS registry-based study in an Egyptian Stroke Center

Background: high-quality data on time of stroke onset and time of hospital arrival is required for proper evaluation of points of delay that might hinder access to medical care after the onset of stroke symptoms. Purpose: Based on (SITS Dataset) in Egyptian stroke patients, we aimed to explore factors related to time of onset versus time of hospital arrival for acute ischemic stroke (AIS). Material and Methods: We included 1,450 AIS patients from two stroke...

Reconstructing Ecological Niche Evolution via Ancestral State Reconstruction with Uncertainty Incorporated

Hannah Owens, Vivian Ribiero, Erin Saupe, Marlon E. Cobos, Peter Hosner, Jacob Cooper, Abdallah Samy, Vijay Barve, Narayani Barve, Carlos Muñoz & A. Townsend Peterson
Reconstructing ecological niche evolution can provide insight into the biogeography and diversification of evolving lineages. However, comparative phylogenetic methods can infer the history of ecological niche evolution inaccurately because (1) species’ niches are often poorly characterized; and (2) phylogenetic comparative methods rely on niche summary statistics rather than full estimates of species’ environmental tolerances. Here we propose a new framework for coding ecological niches and reconstructing their evolution that explicitly acknowledges and incorporates the uncertainty...
