The purpose of the present investigation was to generate pregnancy associated glycoprotein (PAG)-profiles throughout pregnancy in a heterogenous sample of sheep using a radioimmunoassay with a heterologous antibody (anti-caPAG55,59, #708) and utilize them for the purpose of pregnancy detection. From 2 weeks after the introduction of males into the breeding herd until 4 weeks after parturition, weekly blood samples were collected from 66 pregnant and 25 non-pregnant ewes of various breeds. Between 3 and 5 weeks after conception, plasma PAG levels increased, remained almost stable until week 17, then continued to increase, culminating in a drastic surge during the last 2 weeks of pregnancy. By 4 weeks of gestation, the plasma PAG level exceeded the level typical for non-pregnant ewes by five standard deviations, permitting a reliable pregnancy diagnosis. Plasma PAG levels were higher in twin-bearing ewes than in ewes carrying a single lamb, differences getting more evident as pregnancy proceeded. Neither breed and parity of the mother nor sex and weight of lambs home exerted a significant effect. The heterologous assay system utilizing a caprine antibody proved to deliver results that are more consistent and less depending on various variables than those used in other studies. It may be concluded that, at the present state of development, the assay provides a reliable means of diagnosing pregnancy in sheep from the 4th week after they have been bred onward.

The aim of this paper is to deal with multi-physics simulation of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) based on an advanced numerical methodology. MEMS are very small devices in which electric as well as mechanical and fluid phenomena appear and interact. Because of their microscopic scale, strong coupling effects arise between the different physical fields, and some forces, which were negligible at macroscopic scale, have to be taken into account. In order to accurately design such micro-electro-mechanical systems, it is of primary importance to be able to handle the strong coupling between the electric and the mechanical fields. In this paper, the finite element method (FEM) is used to model the strong coupled electro-mechanical interactions and to perform static and transient analyses taking into account large mesh displacements. These analyses will be used to study the behaviour of electrostatically actuated micro-mirrors. [less ▲]

In Wallonia, railways constitute valuable habitats for reptile conservation. All autochthonous species have colonized these man-made habitats, but their presence and abundance largely vary among the natural regions and the kinds of railways. Reptiles are more frequent along railways with remaining rails than along dismounted unused ways, which represents one half of the network. Although representing only a small part of the network, the unused railways not dismounted are particularly rich in reptiles. This is also the case of some active lines in sunny areas of large valleys and in some large switchyards. Anguis fragilis is the most widespread species on the Walloon railways, but P o d a rcis muralisis the most abundant. In Wallonia, railways seemed to have contributed to the local, more rarely regional, dispersion of at least five species of reptiles: Anguis fragilis, Lacerta agilis, Podarcis muralis, Zootoca viviparaa and Coronella austriaca. Some of these species – specifically Podarcis muralis– have most probably colonized new regions through unexpected transportation by merchandise cars. Finally, reptile populations inhabiting the Walloon railways face several threads. [less ▲]

There is an increasing demand for regional oceanic models capable of simulating the regional ocean circulation. Accurate surface forcing functions are necessary to achieve this goal. Here we present analyses of several data sets covering the contiguous eastern Gulf of Mexico and southeast Atlantic: a) Wind fields resulting from the blending by optimal interpolation (OI) of NCEP, in situ and QuikSCAT winds. These winds show improvements in the coastal region, where orography and coastal boundary layer effects are important and under-resolved. b) Cloud-free SST, created by merging several SST sources using OI. c) Cloud-free chlorophyll, also created using OI. d) Surface drifter trajectories, generated from geostrophic currents and used to track water masses, with application to the Mississippi River outflow subsequent to Hurricane Katrina. e) Multivariate cloud-free products, using SST and chlorophyll, and SST and QuikSCAT winds, to obtain more accurate reconstructions than the monovariate equivalents. We use an EOF-based method, called DINEOF, which has proven to give similar results to OI-based reconstruction but up to 30 times faster, making it very suitable for operational applications. These data sets, originally created for the West Florida Shelf, have been expanded for the Southeast Atlantic Coastal Ocean Observing System (SEACOOS) and for broader environmental applications.
