    The Contrastivist Hypothesis (CH; Hall 2007; Dresher 2009) holds that the only features that can be phonologically active in any language are those that serve to distinguish phonemes, which presupposes that phonemic status ...

    VV Cep is an eclipsing binary with a period of about 20.4 years that is comprised of an M2Iab primary star and an early B secondary star. A preliminary orbit was announced in 1933 by Harper & Christie (1936), and McLaughlin ...

    We examine the little-known phenomenon of orbitally modulated Si I emission at [lambda] 3905.523 [angstrom] and [lambda] 4102.936 [angstrom] in composite-spectrum binaries, with specific reference to [zeta] Aurigae (K4 Ib ...

    Building on the initial results of the nIFTy simulated galaxy cluster comparison, we compare and contrast the impact of baryonic physics with a single massive galaxy cluster, run with 11 state-of-the-art codes, spanning ...

  • Yin, Heng; Du, Yuguang; Dong, Zhongmin (Frontiers Media, 2016-04-22)
    Natural resources have been traditionally used in agriculture by humans. For example,crab and shrimp shell powder has been applied to control crop disease and improve soil fertility (Ha and Huang, 2007). On the other ...

  • Wang, Yonggang; Ren, Xifeng; Sun, Dongfa; Sun, Genlou (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-10-27)
    The origin and domestication of cultivated barley have long been under debate. A population-based resequencing and phylogenetic analysis of the single copy of RPB2 gene was used to address barley domestication, to explore ...
