Multistratum response surface designs
(Technometrics, 2001-02-01) [Artigo]
Response surface designs are usually described as if the treatments have been completely randomized to the experimental units. However, in practice there is often a structure to the units, implying the need for blocking. ...
Cannibalistic behavior and functional response in Chrysomya albiceps (Diptera : Calliphoridae)
(Journal of Insect Behavior, 2004-03-01) [Artigo]
Chrysomya albiceps is a facultative predator and cannibal species during the larval stage. Very little is known about cannibalism and prey size preference, especially in blowflies. The purpose of this investigation was to ...
An algorithm for arranging response surface designs in small blocks
(Computational Statistics & Data Analysis, 2000-03-28) [Artigo]
We consider the problem of blocking response surface designs when the block sizes are prespecified to control variation efficiently and the treatment set is chosen independently of the block structure. We show how the loss ...
Sarcopenic obesity and its association with dietary intake among Brazilian adults clinically screened to participate in a lifestyle changing program
(Proceedings of the Nutrition Society, 2012) [Resumo]
Intraoperative Cardiac Arrest and Mortality in Trauma Patients. A 14-Yr Survey from a Brazilian Tertiary Teaching Hospital
(PLOS ONE, 2014-02-27) [Artigo]
Background: Little information on the factors influencing intraoperative cardiac arrest and its outcomes in trauma patients is available. This survey evaluated the associated factors and outcomes of intraoperative cardiac ...
Traveling waves in the Lethargic Crab Disease
(Applied Mathematics and Computation, 2012-06-01) [Artigo]
Since 1997, the Lethargic Crab Disease (LCD) has decimated native populations of the mangrove land crab Ucides cordatus (Decapoda: Ocypodidae) along the Brazilian coast, spreading preferentially in the North-South direction ...
Some experiments with high order compact methods using a computer algebra software - Part II (non-uniform grid)
(Applied Mathematics and Computation, 2006-09-01) [Artigo]
We generalize a procedure proposed by Mancera and Hunt [P.F.A. Mancera, R. Hunt, Some experiments with high order compact methods using a computer algebra software-Part 1, Appl. Math. Comput., in press, doi: 10.1016/j.am ...
Modelling the lethargic crab disease.
(Journal of Biological Dynamics, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
The lethargic crab disease (LCD) is an emergent infirmity that has decimated native populations of the mangrove land crab (Ucides cordatus, Decapoda: Ocypodidae) along the Brazilian coast. Several potential etiological ...
High frequency of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis infection in armadillos (Dasypus novemcinctus): an ecological study
(Medical Mycology, 2003-06-01) [Artigo]
The fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis has been isolated from nine-banded armadillos (Dasypus novemcinctus) in different regions where paracoccidiodomycosis (PCM) is endemic. The link between PCM and these animals has ...
Some segmental structural features of the aortic wall of domestic chicken (Gallus domesticus)
(Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Research and Animal Science, 2003-01-01) [Artigo]
A estrutura segmentar da parede aórtica foi estudada em galo doméstico, em níveis torácico e abdominal, nas dimensões de microscopias óptica e eletrônica de varredura. Secções histológicas selecionadas foram submetidas a ...
