Indicators of peat soil degradation in the Biebrza valley, Poland

-peat soils (Dystri-Fibric Histosol) were sampled in the swamp coniferous forest, and peat-like soils were sampled from a 15-cm shallow peat layer deposited on mineral substrate in the dry wooded mire. The soil types along transect No. 3 varied greatly, with major contribution of peat soils (Eutri-Fibric Histosol), muck soils (Sapri-Dystric Histosol), muckous soils (Areni-Eutric Histosol) and peat-muck soils (Sapri-Eutric Histosol) as well as brown soils (Cambisol). Moderately decomposed sedge moss peat underlain by a weakly decomposed peat was sampled at transect No. 4

TNF-α and IL-6 as biomarkers of impaired lung functions in dimethylacetamide exposure

Introduction The acute and chronic effects of industrial solvent exposure on the burden of occupational and environmental lung diseases are remarkable ( 1 , 2 ). The harmful effects of these agents have been demonstrated in many diseases including cancer, chronic renal failure, peripheral or central neurotoxicity and developmental anomalies ( 3 , 4 ). Dimethylacetamide (DMAc) is an industrial solvent that is widely used in various applications in agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals, production of human-made fibres, industrial coatings and films ( 5 ). As it

Properties of pseudocereals, selected specialty cereals and legumes for food processing with special attention to gluten-free products / Verarbeitungseigenschaften von Pseudogetreide, ausgewählten Spezialitätengetreide und Leguminosen mit speziellem Fokuss auf glutenfreie Produkte

1 Introduction Cereal-based foods form the basis of human nutrition world-wide. Their main task is the supply of nutrition energy as they are rich in high polymer carbohydrates, mainly starch. Besides, cereals can and do contribute a significant amount of biologically active constituents that promote beneficial physiological effects like dietary fiber and their fractions, vitamins and polyphenols, to name only a few. There is a large variety of cereal species that has been and could be used for human nutrition, as well as starch-rich seeds that can be used

Inclusion of NSP-hydrolysing enzymes in diets for broiler chicks containing increasing contents of distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) / Einsatz von NSP-spaltenden Enzymen in Futterrationen für Broiler mit unterschiedlichen Trockenschlempegehalten (DDGS)

a result, the consumption of natural feed resources such as grains by pig and poultry feed can be considerably reduced without impairing the animals’ health or performance ( Schedle, 2016 ). Above all, monogastric livestock or poultry directly compete with humans for feedstuffs/foodstuffs, because of their similar digestive physiology. Hence, the reduction of cereals in diets for monogastric livestock and poultry is very important from a sustainable point of view ( Schedle, 2016 ). The DDGS contains high amounts of fiber, mainly consisting of non

felling, diameters at breast height and total heights of these trees were measured. The north and east directions were marked on the bark of these trees. The five trees had diameters at breast height ranging between 15 and 20 cm and total heights between 15.7 and 19 m. After de-branching, the trees were transversally cut every 2 m. From each resulting section, a disc was extracted and identification data as well as north and east directions were marked. Along with the disc, two smaller samples were extracted from each stem section, one from the inner-wood and the other

A simplified maturity index to quantify the development stage of perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) and its relationship with yield and nutritive value

1 Introduction Accurate and easy identification of the growth stage of a grass sward is critical to many forage breeding and management decisions. Quantity and quality of forage grasses are strongly affected by plant morphology ( Moore and Moser, 1995 ). Some forage quality traits, such as crude protein and fiber, change unfavorably with advancing maturity ( Simon and Park, 1983 ). Many previous studies have been conducted with the common goal to quantify the developmental stages of cool-season ( Haun, 1973 ; Simon and Park, 1983 ; Sweet et al., 1991
