components go through various adaptive changes. The nature of these systemic and organ adaptations is highly specific to a particular sport with respect to the type of conditioning and apparent stimuli to which the athlete is subjected ( Dudley and Djamil, 1985 ). Typically, regular endurance-training programs use low-resistance, high-repetition aerobic exercises to stimulate physiological and psychological adaptations that enable athletes to better tolerate exercise stress and result in significant improvements in maximal oxygen uptake ( Bessett and Howley, 2000

Abstract

The purpose was to study how important stride parameters such as the cycle duration, electromoygraphical (EMG) burst duration and activation level change with running speed and with change in terrain and ground conditions. In total six male regional to national level elite orienteers participated in the study. Mean (range), height and weight were 25 (19-32) years, 180 (1.74-1.88)m and 71 (67-75)kg. Hip joint angular displacement was determined by means of an electrogoniometer. The electrical activity in m. vastus lateralis (VL) of the right leg was recorded with bipolar surface electrodes taped over the belly of the muscles. Electrogoniometric and EMG data were recorded by means of a portable data logger at a rate of 1000 Hz. The time between markers in test intervals was recorded by means of an ultra sound based timing system (Time-it, Eleiko AB, Sweden). The participating orienteers performed, after a warming up period, runs on four different horizontal ground surfaces; gravel road, forest terrain (low density undergrowth), timber felling and wet moss. The recordings were done during running in four different constant self determined speeds: slow, medium, fast (competition speed) and maximum speed. The cycle duration decreased in a similar manner with speed during running in all the tested terrain conditions and gravel road. The burst duration of the knee extensor m. vastus lateralis showed the same trend as the change in cycle duration with speed. The same increasing trend in mean EMG activation level with speed is seen in all terrain conditions and gravel road. However, specific differences between terrain and surface conditions in cycle duration, burst duration and EMG amplitude were present.

Abstract

Data records since from 2008 to 2012 show the occurrence of the coral reef bleaching, an increase in population of jellyfish and a decreasing presence of some migratory marine mammals in the Persian Gulf has increased. Results of our biometric methods on jellyfish of the Persian Gulf (Aurelia aurata), show a significant increase in size during the last four years (p < 0.05). Our studies in the area showed that in the sampling areas in close proximity to superhot wastewater of industries cooled in terrestrial pools and then emptied into the sea, the abundance of the Aurelia aurata was significantly lower than in regions where superhot water was directly emptied into the seawater. This paper will review the effects of global warming, especially in the Persian Gulf.
