(6) Reports of hard and soft tissue injuries of the head in ancient Egypt were first published in the surgical "Book of Wounds" of E. Smith's Papyrus, which dates back to the 16th century B.C., and is assumed (Pahl, 1986) to be a collection of experiences gained over a thousand years.
(7) These lesions, seldom recognized in modern clinical practice, are first described in the oldest scientific and surgical treatise known, the Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus, over 5000 years ago.
(8) This paper describes a recent multidisciplinary study conducted by two library faculty members and one allied health faculty member to test a bibliometric method that used the MEDLINE and CINAHL databases on CD-ROM and the Papyrus database management program to produce a new collection development methodology.
(9) Surgical Papyrus known as "The Edwin Smith Papyrus" was published in facsimile and hieroglyphic transliteration with translation and commentary by James Henry Breasted in 1930.
(10) Individual authors, as well as larger research groups, should be prepared for this type of commitment before acquiring the Papyrus system.
(11) We report an assessment of a dedicated modem line to DIMDI of Cologne (an institute offering a variety of biomedical, psychological and other literature databases), Medline on Silverplatter, Current Contents on disk and the Papyrus bibliography system.
(12) Interest in the papyrus lies in its being indisputably the most ancient document on gynaecology known.
(13) The first and longest period (covering roughly 3,000 years from 1500 BC to 1500 AD) begins with references to incisions into the "wind pipe" in the Ebers Papyrus and the Rig Veda.
(14) : the Kahun Medical Papyrus, the Ramesseum IV and Ramesseum V Papyri, the Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus, The Ebers Medical Papyrus and the Hearst Medical Papyrus.
(15) We find her name again and again in Jewish, Christian and pagan papyrus texts.
(16) Misinformed opponents of birth control who argue among other things that family planning is a US plot ignore the fact that the desire to avoid pregnancy dates from the remote past, as attested by evidence from early Egyptian papyruses.
(17) The examination of the nose has been known to the ancient Egyptian medical doctors (Papyrus Ebers), and is exactly described by Hippocrates (460-377 B. C.).
(18) The Papyrus was acquired by Edwin Smith in Luxor, 1862.
(19) This article presents a new translation of the papyrus Kahun.
(20) Papyrus is an inexpensive bibliographic database which provides some features not found in other similar packages.
(n.) Any plant of the genus Carex, perennial, endogenous herbs, often growing in dense tufts in marshy places. They have triangular jointless stems, a spiked inflorescence, and long grasslike leaves which are usually rough on the margins and midrib. There are several hundred species.
(n.) A flock of herons.
(1) Three bacterial isolates, a Pseudomonas sp., a Bacillus sp., and an Arthrobacter sp., commonly isolated from a hummocky sedge-moss meadow at Devon Island, N.W.T., Canada, were selected for further taxonomic characterization and for a study of the effects of temperature and limiting carbon source on growth.
(2) This factor would have been 1200 if lead aerosols had not collected on sedge leaves and circtumvented the tendency by sedge to exclude lead from the nutritive metals it absorbed from soil moisture.
(3) This ratio decreased by an overall factor of 200 in proceeding from rock, to soil moisture, to sedge, to vole.
(4) The plant compound, 6-methoxy-2-benzoxazolinone (6-MBOA), is present in vegetatively growing grasses and sedges and acts to trigger reproduction in other rodent species exposed to short days.
(5) A sedge, Mariscus congestus (Vahl) C.B.Cl., was a useful indicator of Aedes (Ochlerotatus) juppi McIntosh oviposition areas.
(6) B. globosus shows a clear predilection for the sedge Cyperus exaltatus as support for oviposition.
(7) In a market study male turkeys were raised on floor pens containing peat or wood shavings and fed 0, 5, or 10% reed-sedge peat as a diluent of a typical corn-soybean meal mash diet.
(8) Lesser pollens are sorrel, willow, pine, juniper, sedge, lamb's-quarters, wormwood, plantain, and others.
(9) parasitic on four species of wild cereals and two species of sedge.
(10) Larvae were most numerous in areas dominated by arrow-arum (Peltandra virginica) and maidencane (Panicum hemitomon), less so in areas dominated by sedges (Carex spp.)
(11) While gathering sedges or tamarinds, adult males sat in one place longer than others and obtained more food per sitting.
(12) Most of the lead contained in sedge and voles (mountain meadow mice) within one of the most pristine, remote valleys in the United States is not natural but came from smelter fumes and gasoline exhausts.
(13) This finding is consistent with one of the two principal views of grass phylogeny in suggesting that Poaceae and Cyperaceae (sedges) are not closest relatives.
(14) The upper levels, and the shape of the roofs thatched with straw or sedge, are conjecture, so several different styles are being tried out, included thatching over steeper ridges and shallow curved hazel hoops.
(15) Wombats consume grasses and sedges which are often highly fibrous.
(16) The finding, gathering, and preparing of sedge corms and of seeds of tamarind fruit were described in detail.
(17) Clavicipitaceous endophytes (Ascomycetes) are distributed worldwide in many grasses and sedges forming a perennial and often mutualistic association with their hosts.
(18) It was a watery anomaly, a pond in dunes, surrounded by thick tussocks of sand sedge many, many miles from the sea.
(19) The authors feel that friction with clothing or with scrub pads made of sedge (a very common practice amongst mexicans in the bath room) against clavicular protuberances is fundamental in its pathogenesis.
(20) injuring sedge have the haploid number of chromosomes n=18.
