A study of the 2006 heat wave. A Fouillet; G Rey; V Wagner; K Laaidi; P Empereur-Bissonnet; A Le Tertre; P Frayssinet; P Bessemoulin; F Laurent; P De Crouy-Chanel; E Jougla; D Hémon // International Journal of Epidemiology;Apr2008, Vol. 37 Issue 2, p309 

    Background In July 2006, a lasting and severe heat wave occurred in Western Europe. Since the 2003 heat wave, several preventive measures and an alert system aiming at reducing the risks related to high temperatures have been set up in France by the health authorities and institutions. In order...

    An individual-based model of nesting smallmouth bass, Micropterus dolomieu, is used to predict the effects of water level fluctuations onreproductive success. The model simulates daily nest site selection,spawning, nest guarding, and development and survival of eggs, embryos, and larvae until...

    The aim of this study was to estimate parameters and design models for mortality prediction of broiler chickens in different preslaughter conditions, using the double generalized linear models. Preslaughter data from 13,937 broiler flocks were recorded daily during 2006, in a commercial...

  • Temperature effect on microalgae: a crucial factor for outdoor production. Ras, Monique; Steyer, Jean-Philippe; Bernard, Olivier // Reviews in Environmental Science & Biotechnology;Jun2013, Vol. 12 Issue 2, p153 

    High rate outdoor production units of microalgae can undergo temperature fluctuations. Seasonal temperature variations as well as more rapid daily fluctuations are liable to modify the growth conditions of microalgae and hence affect production efficiency. The effect of elevated temperatures,...

    The survival rate of mosquitoes is an important topic that affects many aspects of decision-making in mosquito management. This study aims to estimate the variability in the survival rate of Ae. aegypti, and climate factors that are related to such variability. It is generally assumed that the...

    Objectives. Evidence suggests a predictive association between emotion and mortality risk. However, no study has examined dynamic aspects of emotion in relation to mortality. This study used an index of emotional reactivity, defined as changes in positive or negative affect in response to daily...

    The relationship between economic fluctuations and mortality is assessed with data from Spain during the years 1980–1997, when national unemployment oscillated between 7% and 24%. Mortality rates of the Spanish provinces are modeled in fixed-effect panel regressions as functions of the...

    This article discusses a study on the relationship between daily weather and mortality rate for a population of almost 60,000 from 2003 through 2008 in Nairobi, Kenya. It is cited that there are seasonal fluctuations in mortality which depicts highest number of deaths during the relative cold...
