Echinaster graminicola, a new species of spinulosid sea star (Echinodermata: Asteroidea) from the west coast of Florida
A new species of the sea-star genus Echinaster is described from shallow-water seagrass and oyster beds of the west coast of Florida. The new speciesand E. spinulosus Verrill are sibling species, morphologically ...
On a duality principle in processes of servicing machines with double control
This paper examines a doubly controlled process of servicing machines. The classical system treated by Takács is equipped with m+1 unreliable machines served by one repairman. In the present modification of this model, the ...
On a multi-channel queue with state dependent input flow and interruptions
This paper deals with a multi-channel queueing system with a finite waiting room but without losses. The latter is achieved by a temporary interruption of the input flow activity until the waiting room is ready to place a ...
Iron and copper enrichment of suspended particles in dispersed hydrothermal plumes along the mid‐Atlantic Ridge
Particulate Fe and Cu concentrations are used in conjunction with dissolved Mn values to identify hydrothermal venting at several sites along the Mid‐Atlantic Ridge (MAR). In dispersed hydrothermal plumes, as defined by ...
On a multi-channel transportation loss system with controlled input and controlled service
A multi-channel loss queueing system is investigated. The input stream is a controlled point process. The service in each of m parallel channels depends on the state of the system at certain moments of time when input and ...
A redescription of Echinaster Modestus Perrier, 1881 (Asteroidea: Spinulosida) from the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the West Indies
The seastar Echinaster modestus Perrier, 1881, is redescribed and a lectotype is designated. Echinaster spp. from the west coast of Florida used in recent experimental studies are not E. modestus.
FACTORS INFLUENCING SEAGRASS ECOLOGY IN THE INDIAN RIVER LAGOON
Effects of water depth, water temperature, light intensity, epiphyte coverage, detrital accumulation and sediment resuspension and shifting on seagrass ecology in the Indian River Lagoon system were studied from April 1977 ...
THE DIET OF THE FLORIDA POMPANO (TRACHINOTUS CAROLINUS) ALONG THE EAST COAST OF CENTRAL FLORIDA
The diet of the Florida pompano (Trachinotus carolinus) was investigated hy examining stomach contents of adults from the Indian River and juveniles from the surf zone off Brevard County. Juveniles consumed primarily henthic ...
A NEW METHOD FOR IMPROVED FIXATION OF THE CHICK'S INNER EAR
Our method for fixation of the chick's inner ear involves puncturing the soft temporal bone with a needle and directly flushing the membranous labyrinth with cold glutaraldehyde. The temporal bone is trimmed and immersed ...
Hamiltonian formulation of induced gravity in two dimensions
A Hamiltonian formulation of the theory of induced gravity in two dimensions is constructed. This formulation differs from previous efforts in that the formalism is covariant under all relevant transformation groups. In ...
