A Comparison Of Different Treatments For Mesothelioma, Samira Rezaei

Anthós

The goal of this research was to survey the literature of studies on mesothelioma treatments and compare their rates of success. The focus was on radiation therapy which is used with chemotherapy or surgery treatment for this specific type of cancer. The research is based on the chosen treatments of thirteen patients who shared their stories on different websites. The number of survived years for these patients was compared. The results show that the average number of years survived in patients who used mind-body therapy is greater than other patients who use radiation therapy as palliation with chemotherapy, surgery treatment ...


Effects Of Light Limitation On Plant-­Rhizobia And Plant-Mycorrhiza Interactions, Jess A. Millar Jan 2012

Effects Of Light Limitation On Plant-­Rhizobia And Plant-Mycorrhiza Interactions, Jess A. Millar

Anthós

Plants respond with a sink stimulation of photosynthesis when colonized by bacterial and fungal mutualists, which compensates for costs of carbohydrate allocation to the microbes. Problems may arise when light is limited and plants cannot increase photosynthesis. We hypothesize that under such conditions the costs for maintaining the mutualism outweigh the benefits, which ultimately turns the beneficial microbes into parasites exploiting resources and reducing host fitness. We study these plant-­‐microbe interactions under different light availabilities using lima bean plants, rhizobia (nitrogen-­‐fixing bacteria), and mycorrhizal fungi. In our study, we apply two levels of light (full light and light ...


Cultural Responses To Climate Change In The Holocene, Richard Prentice Jun 2009

Cultural Responses To Climate Change In The Holocene, Richard Prentice

Anthós

Variable Holocene climate conditions have caused cultures to thrive, adapt or fail. The invention of agriculture and the domestication of plants and animals allowed sedentary societies to develop and are the result of the climate becoming warmer after the last glaciation. The subsequent cooling of the Younger Dryas forced humans to concentrate into geographic areas that had an abundant water supply and ultimately favorable conditions for the use of agriculture and widespread domestication of plants and animals. Population densities would have reached a threshold and forced a return to foraging, however the end of the Younger Dryas at 10,000 ...
