Data collected from published studies on litter mixture decomposition. Seventy-eight publications were included that report mass loss (in %) of the two single litters decomposing alone as well as the 2-species mixture mass loss. Litter quality parameters (such as chemical quality, nutrient content, litter size), if measured, were also reported.

Data of a study examining the association between trait resilience and salivary cortisol in 49 Chinese undergraduates. Saliva samples were collected from participants 6 times per day over 3 consecutive days with compliance monitored by MEMS track caps. The Chinese version of the Brief Resilience Scale (Lai & Yue, 2014) was used to measured trait resilience.

This dataset is part of the research article entitled “Design and experimental study of a low-cost prefab Trombe Wall to improve indoor temperatures in social housing in the Biobío Region in Chile,” Ref. No.: SE-D-19-03183, submitted to Solar Energy journal. Specifically, the dataset presented is centered in experimental results for a 1-year monitoring campaign for an adaptable and low-cost prefabricated Trombe Wall (TW) with a vertical storage system. The tests also included periods for mobile insulation during winter nights and external shading during summer effects on Thermal performance. Measuring was done using temperature sensors and compared to a similar test cell situated on the same site but without the solar passive component. The experiment was done in 2 different microclimates, consequently results from a coastal city (Coronel) and the interior valley (Chillan), were collected. Mediterranean temperate Csb(i) and Mediterranean (Csb), respectively, according to the Köppen climate classification. In every city, two test cells were built, designed to represent the most used area of a social housing unit in combination with the most widely used type of window in north façades in the region. One of them was installed exactly like a social housing with the typical window to north facade, and in the other one, a low-cost Trombe wall was installed. Five temperature sensors were installed in the module with the BP_01(Bioclimatic Prosthesis 01); tree sensors were integrated on a vertical column(Sensors 1,2, and 3) to measure stratification degrees on the house. Another one on the opposite side of the space(Sensor 4) and the last one inside the Trombe wall(Sensor 5). Electronic Temperature Sensors with Measurement error 1°C and a 0.1ºC resolution were used. The monitoring states (scenarios) and data collection were 6 for Coronel and 4 for Chillán. Including the first period with closed vent holes, secondly, open vent holes, and gradually adding more features as night shutters with insulation on Winter and an auxiliary fan, also a summer scenario with an external specially designed shadowing. Observing all these measurements, the thermal efficiency of the TW was monitored and analyzed by the very first time in Chile, also the potential effectiveness of seasonal variations to improve winter and summer performances.

The primary objective of this study was to study the effectiveness of analgesia of low dose morphine and fentanyl infusion for postoperative analgesia following spine fusion surgeries. The secondary objectives were to assess visual analogue score (VAS), sedation score and complications like nausea, vomiting, pruritus, and respiratory depression,.After approval by the institutional ethical committee, this prospective, randomized, double-blinded study was done on100 adult patients undergoing lumbar spine fusion surgeries.The patients were randomly divided in to group M (Morphine) or group F (Fentanyl) infusion by computer generated random numbers method. The print out was taken and kept in a sealed envelope. The general anaesthesia was standardized in both the groups. The envelope was opened at this stage and first anesthesiologist prepared the solution according to the group involved. Morphine was prepared as 1mg/ml and fentanyl as 15 mcg/ml solution in an identical looking 50ml syringes.The amount of infusion and bolus dose for breakthrough pain was decided by the first anaesthesiologist based on body weight and he takes no further part in the study. The second anesthesiologist, who was blinded to the group involved, administered the solution as per dose suggested by first anesthesiologist and did monitoring and further management of the patient.Group M patients received Morphine in a dose of 0.02 mg/kg/h continuous infusion with a bolus of 0.04 mg/kg bolus for breakthrough pain. Group F patients received Fentanyl in a dose of 0.3 mcg/kg/h continuous infusion with a bolus of 0.6 mcg/kg bolus for breakthrough pain. If the patient has pain after 15 minutes, bolus dose was repeated. The total number of additional bolus doses utilized was noted. If the pain was persistent for more than 30 minutes then the study was stopped and pain was treated with morphine in titrated doses. Both the groups received infusion for first 24 hours postoperatively. The patients were followed up for further 24 hours to observe for complications. VAS was explained to the patient and was used to assess the pain. [8] The patients were given additional bolus dose when VAS > 3. The sedation was assessed using the Ramsay sedation score (RSS) .The patients were monitored continuously for vital parameters like heart rate, non-invasive blood pressure and oxygen saturation (SPO2) and values are recorded every four hours for 24 hours. The patients were observed for adverse effects like nausea, vomiting, pruritus and respiratory depression. The continuous data were expressed as mean and standard deviation and qualitative data were expressed as numberof events (%). The Student’s t test was used to compare quantitative variables. Categorical data was compared using chi-squared test or Fisher’s exact test, when appropriate. A p-value of < 0.05 was considered statistically significant.

Coccolithophores are important contributors to global calcium carbonate through their species-specific production of calcite coccoliths. Nannofossil coccolith calcite remains an important tool for paleoreconstructions through geochemical analysis of isotopic and trace element incorporation, including Sr, which is a potential indicator of past surface ocean temperature and productivity. Scyphosphaera apsteinii exhibits an unusually high Sr/Ca ratio and correspondingly high partitioning coefficient (DSr) in their two morphologically distinct types of coccoliths. Whether or not this reflects mechanistic differences in calcification compared to other coccolithophores is unknown. We therefore examined the possible role of Sr in S. apsteinii calcification by growing cells in deplete, ambient, and higher than ambient Sr conditions (between 0.33 - 140 mmol/mol Sr/Ca). The effects on growth, quantum efficiency of photosystem II (Fv/Fm), coccolith morphology, and calcite DSr were evaluated. Reducing the Sr/Ca from ambient (9 mmol/mol) did not significantly alter the frequency of malformed and aberrant muroliths and lopadoliths, but at higher than ambient Sr/Ca conditions coccolith morphology was significantly disrupted. This implies that Sr is not a critical determining factor in normal coccolith calcite morphology in this dimorphic species. Interestingly, muroliths had significantly lower Sr/Ca than lopadoliths at ambient and elevated [Sr], and lopadolith tips had lower Sr than bases in ambient conditions. In summary, the Sr fractionation behavior of S. apsteinii is unusual because of an overall high DSr, and an inter- and intra-coccolith variability in Sr/Ca. We hypothesize that differential Sr-and Ca-binding capacity of coccolith associated polysaccharides may account for the unusual Sr fractionation of this species which can explain all observations made in this study.
