1 p, 109.6 KB Genetic variation of alkaloid production in Conium maculatum after reassociation with the specialist moth Agonopterix alstroemeriana / Castells, Eva (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Farmacologia, de Terapèutica i de Toxicologia) ; Berenbaum, May R.
Studies in biological control and invasion biology rarely determine whether introduced plants may rapidly evolve in the area of introduction. Examining the evolution of plant chemical defenses after reassociation with a coevolved enemy is important not only to understand the dynamics of plant-herbivore interactions but also in predicting potential ultimate outcomes of classical weed control programs. [...]
Total alkaloid production in C. maculatum was positively correlated with reassociation time between C. maculatum and A. alstroemeriana, with the longest historical association with A. alstroemeriana (NY) had highest alkaloid content; WA plants were intermediate, with the highest amount of variability among sites, and IL plants had lowest alkaloid concentrations.

18 p, 151.5 KB Transcribing documentaries? : Can respeaking be used efficiently? / Daniluk, Lukasz (University of Roehampton) ; Matamala, Anna (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) ; Romero Fresco, Pablo (University of Roehampton)
Respeaking is increasingly used to offer live intralingual subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing (Romero-Fresco 2011), hence guaranteeing media accessibility to a wider section of the population. [...]

1 p, 540.8 KB Better Collaborating! Groups Facing Information in Online Contexts / Hernández-Pérez, Oskar ; Universitat Oberta de Catalunya
Research on how people collaborate with each other for sharing, retrieving, managing and disseminating information is still an emergent field in Library and Information Science that becomes particularly necessary when the units of analysis are groups rather than individuals, due to the inherently collaborative nature of groupal activities. [...]

Teamwork is encouraged nowadays as an imperative skill to better perform all critical factors, including information, that are involved in the project-based structures of many organizations. Due to the inherently collaborative nature of group activities, when groups search, retrieve, manage and disseminate information, new relationships with information emerge which result in collaborative informational behaviours. [...]

28 p, 304.4 KB Vanishing acts : creative women in Spain and in the United States / Grow, Jean (Marquette University) ; Roca, David (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Comunicació Audiovisual i Publicitat) ; David, Roca (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) ; Broyles, Sheri J. (University of North Texas)
This exploratory cross-cultural study examines the experiences of women in advertising creative departments in Spain and the United States. The study, an exploration of the creative environment and its impact on female creatives, is framed by Hofstede's dimensional model of national culture (Hofstede 2001; de Mooij & Hofstede 2010) and signalling theory (Spence 1974).

20 p, 1.3 MB An environmental and economic life cycle assessment of rooftop greenhouse (RTG) implementation in Barcelona, Spain. Assessing new forms of urban agriculture from the greenhouse structure to the final product level / Sanyé Mengual, Esther (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Oliver i Solà, Jordi (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Montero Camacho, Juan Ignacio (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Rieradevall, Joan (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental)
Purpose: rooftop greenhouses (RTGs) are increasing as a new form of urban agriculture. Several environmental, economic, and social benefits have been attributed to the implementation of RTGs. However, the environmental burdens and economic costs of adapting greenhouse structures to the current building legislation were pointed out as a limitation of these systems in the literature. [...]

25 p, 780.3 KB An experimental study into the acquisition of cultural competence in translator training : research design and methodological issues / Olalla-Soler, Christian (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)
Despite the importance given to culture and cultural competence in Translation Studies, these concepts have only been developed at a theoretical level thus far. The lack of empirical and more specifically experimental studies on cultural competence and its acquisition in translator training is the main reason behind the author's study. [...]

Approximate string matching is a very important problem in computational biology; it requires the fast computation of string distance as one of its essential components. Myers' bit-parallel algorithm improves the classical dynamic programming approach to Levenshtein distance computation, and offers competitive performance on CPUs. [...]
