(10) Phylogenetic trees constructed by both the maximum parsimony method and the neighbor-joining method were highly congruent.
(11) A parsimonious phylogenetic tree suggests that aphA1-IAB evolved from an ancestral form that is closely related or identical to the aphA1 found in Tn903.
(12) The most parsimonious and maximum-likelihood trees both separated the Coleoptera and Neuroptera, but this separation was not statistically significant.
(13) Furthermore, because he fails to take a full count of the number of parameters used in his autoregressive model his argument from parsimony is flawed.
(14) Using regressive logistic models, we analyzed familial aggregation of birth defects among relatives of infants with OM and GA. An autosomal recessive model of inheritance was found to be the most parsimonious explanation for the families of infants with isolated OM or GA.
(15) It was concluded that ARIMA models may, in some cases, produce the most parsimonious model, but in other cases they may miss important process behaviors.
(16) Data from a 52-item self-administered Activities of Daily Living (ADL) Self-Care Scale designed for persons diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) were refactored for the purpose of achieving scale parsimony and clarifying interrelationships among ADL self-care behaviors.
(17) Overall, there is structural and computational economy, or even parsimony.
(18) Thus, whereas a change in central MSH sensitivity may contribute to reduced fever in aged homeotherms, a reduction in central pyrogen receptors appears to be the most parsimonious explanation.
(19) Fourteen thioredoxin sequences were used to construct a minimal phylogenetic tree by using parsimony.
(20) For simplicity the emphasis is placed more on parsimony than on sequence homology in the present study, though both are certainly important.
(n.) A thriving state; good husbandry; economical management in regard to property; frugality.
(n.) Success and advance in the acquisition of property; increase of worldly goods; gain; prosperity.
(n.) Vigorous growth, as of a plant.

(4) Bovine viral diarrhea virus was believed to be the cause of ill-thrift since birth, resulting in death of a Holstein calf.
(5) As he reminded us, "Keynes talked about a ' paradox of thrift ': everyone and every country being individually wise but collectively foolish – leading to a downward spiral."
(6) However, studies on the aetiology of ill-thrift in young sheep indicate that arthropod-borne anaemia-producing pathogens are an important contributing factor, which cannot readily be diagnosed and controlled.
(7) Very few would argue with advising consolidation and thrift to an individual trying to bring debt under control.
(8) Festival curator Wayne Hemingway says thrift is not about buying more stuff for less, but about consuming more intelligently, reusing, recycling and thinking creatively about the way we live and consume.
(9) Savings are generally seen as benign and the result of virtue and thrift, but they are dangerous when handed to investment managers under pressure to produce high returns.
(10) Many of the new Thatcher-era first-time buyers gained their ownership through the right to buy scheme, giving council tenants the right, for the first time, to buy their homes at a hefty discount – about which Thatcher had initial reservations, due to her instinctive thrift.

(13) As a little girl, she'd visit thrift shops with her mother for outfits and back at home she amassed a suitcase of prom dresses.
(14) I pondered this as I sat in my regrettably pricey train seat on the way to the UK's first Festival of Thrift last weekend, held in Darlington.
(15) The Tory leader hammered away at the need for government to deliver "more for less", for "a government of thrift" and for "big changes for government and the role of the state".
(16) It's between Blurred Lines, Get Lucky, Thrift Shop, Diamonds and Locked Out Of Heaven.
(17) E. ovis, either alone or in combination with one or more of these parasites, caused a severe prolonged anaemia accompanied by the development of ill-thrift.
(18) However, in heavily infected flocks, economically significant disease does occur, mainly apparent as ill-thrift and chronic respiratory disease (maedi) in older ewes and as an indurative mastitis, which can result in delayed weight gain of suckled lambs.
(19) Antibiotic-resistant STIs are a way to remind ourselves of the dignity of the NHS project, its elegant combination of generosity, ambition and meaningful thrift, investing in a population because they’re worth it, whatever they’ve been up to.
