Quercus Ilex L Ecosystems Function Dynamics And Management


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Holm oak (Quercus ilex L.) forests and woodlands have been considered as a paradigm for Mediterranean terrestrial ecosystems. In the western part of the Mediterranean Basin, these forests and woodlands occupy large areas and thus play a very important role in the landscape. A number of research projects from the Centre d'Ecologie Fonctionnelle et Evolutive (CEFE), the Centre de Recerca Ecológica i Aplicacions Forestals (CREAF), and from many other laboratories are currently focusing on Q. ilex ecosystems, and a number of problems have appeared concerning not only basic knowledge but also management aspects. For this reason, the CEFE and the CREAF decided to jointly organize the workshop on Quercus ilex L. Ecosystems, which was held in Montpellier and Barcelona in September 1990. The present volume consists of a selection of papers presented during the workshop and other papers contributed after the workshop. The papers are divided into five sections: Biogeography and History; Structure, Productivity and Dynamics; Water Relationships; Nutrient Cycling; and Management.

Quick Turnaround Asic Design In Vhdl


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

From the Foreword..... Modern digital signal processing applications provide a large challenge to the system designer. Algorithms are becoming increasingly complex, and yet they must be realized with tight performance constraints. Nevertheless, these DSP algorithms are often built from many constituent canonical subtasks (e.g., IIR and FIR filters, FFTs) that can be reused in other subtasks. Design is then a problem of composing these core entities into a cohesive whole to provide both the intended functionality and the required performance. In order to organize the design process, there have been two major approaches. The top-down approach starts with an abstract, concise, functional description which can be quickly generated. On the other hand, the bottom-up approach starts from a detailed low-level design where performance can be directly assessed, but where the requisite design and interface detail take a long time to generate. In this book, the authors show a way to effectively resolve this tension by retaining the high-level conciseness of VHDL while parameterizing it to get good fit to specific applications through reuse of core library components. Since they build on a pre-designed set of core elements, accurate area, speed and power estimates can be percolated to high- level design routines which explore the design space. Results are impressive, and the cost model provided will prove to be very useful. Overall, the authors have provided an up-to-date approach, doing a good job at getting performance out of high-level design. The methodology provided makes good use of extant design tools, and is realistic in terms of the industrial design process. The approach is interesting in its own right, but is also of direct utility, and it will give the existing DSP CAD tools a highly competitive alternative. The techniques described have been developed within ARPAs RASSP (Rapid Prototyping of Application Specific Signal Processors) project, and should be of great interest there, as well as to many industrial designers.

Capital Funding Of New School Places


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

256,000 new school places are still needed by 2014/15 to meet increased need. Although the Department for Education has increased the funding it provides to local authorities and there has been a net increase of almost 81,500 primary school places in the last two years, there are indications of real strain on school places. Just over 20 per cent of schools were full or over capacity in May 2012. The number of infant classes with more than 31 children has doubled since 2007. 240,000 of the new places required by 2014/15 are primary school places, of which 37 per cent are in London. The Department's 2010 assessments of necessary funding were based on incomplete information. At the time, it estimated it would cost a total of £5 billion to fund 324,000 new places. The Department makes a significant financial contribution towards the cost of new places, and since the Spending Review, it has earmarked £4.3 billion for local authorities towards the cost of providing places. An additional £982 million for schools capital was announced in December 2012, some of which the Department intends to fund further places by 2014/15 and some in 2015/16. Local authorities reported that they made a higher average funding contribution towards the cost of places than the Department had assumed they would. Although the Department has improved the information it uses to make decisions it currently lacks sufficient information about how local authorities are using the funding they have already been given
