- ... Nonlinear response curves are often used to model the physiological responses of plants. These models are preferable to polynomials because the coefficients fit to the curves have biological meaning. The response curves are often generated by repeated measurements on one subject, over a range of values for the environmental variable of interest. However, the typical analysis of differences in coef ...

- ... Daily rainfall and evaporation data of 30 years (1969–1998) are analysed for prediction of hydrological events, such as occurrence of effective monsoon (EM) and withdrawal of monsoon (WM), for planning rainfed rice in Eastern India. Those hydrological events are treated with normal (ND), lognormal (LND), Pearson type III (PTD), and log-Pearson type III (LPTD) distributions. The historical data of ...

- ... Deficiencies in small quantities of micronutrients, especially iodine and iron, severely affect more than a third of the world's population, resulting in serious public health consequences, especially for women and young children. Salt is an ideal carrier of micronutrients. the double fortification of salt with both iodine and iron is an attractive approach to the reduction of both anemia and iodi ...
