sigmoidally, when the newly produced grains remove up the deformation microstructures.
The tooth crown includes three main cusps sigmoidally incurved, with a distinct lateral carina.
The setae are sigmoidally curved towards the tip of the leg, with the tip of the setae facing down (Fig.
This equation has the desired properties of the function being 1 at values of t far below [t.sub.50,1], rising sigmoidally to 1.5 at [t.sub.50,1], and rising toward an asymptote of 2 as t increases above [t.sub.50,1], with the amount of time both stages are present being a function of [s.sub.1] (Fig.
The bulk of oil and protein were synthesised throughout this phase with their content increasing sigmoidally. As the seed moisture content decreased during the final maturation phase (fruit diameters of 24 mm - 28 mm), the average oil content reached 24.8%, while the protein contents were 24.8% and the starch contents were 8.7%.
WEP's DPPH radical scavenging activity increased sigmoidally with increasing sample concentrations between 0.01 and 3 mg/mL sample (Figure 2), indicating that WEP's DPPH radical scavenging activity reached a saturation point at concentrations of 3 mg/mL.
The inset of Figure 9 shows that the fraction of monomer in the perturbed state rises sigmoidally between 46[degrees]C and 55[degrees]C and that a higher proportion of protein is perturbed when urea is present.
Geranium is polysymmetric, in a few species the pollination organs are sigmoidally curved, and in the Hawaiian Geranium arboreum also the corolla is monosymmetric (Albers & Van der Walt, 2007), Erodium is weakly monosymmetric, and Pelargonium strongly monosymmetric (Vogel, 1998).
We assumed the habitat quality perceived by an individual particle was the sum of the location-specific background habitat quality (exposed shell), and a term that declined sigmoidally from near 1 at the particle's birth location toward 0 at infinite distance from the birth location.
The number of ingested shrimp increased sigmoidally, however, beginning with only 3 shrimp at 0 h and reaching a maximum of about 68 shrimp by 72 h.
where [C.sub.S] is sigmoidally mineralisable C fraction, [t.sub.0] is time in days required for complete mineralisation of [C.sub.S], and k is rate constant (Table 3).
