    Motivated by potential applications to computer storage allocation, we generalize the classical one-dimensional bin packing model to include dynamic arrivals and departures of items over time. Within this setting, we prove close upper and lower bounds on the worst-case performance of the commonly used First Fit packing algorithm, and, using adversary-type arguments, we show that no on-line Cited by: This is the second edition of Freshwater Algae; the popular guide to temperate freshwater algae. This book uniquely combines practical information on sampling and experimental techniques with an explanation of basic algal taxonomy plus a key to identify the more frequently-occurring organisms. Fully revised, it describes major bioindicator species in relation to key environmental parameters. School of Library & Information Science Coates Hall Baton Rouge, LA Telephone: Fax: E-mail: [email protected] Today, biology (and related fields such as medicine and pharmaceutics) are increasingly data-intensive—a trend that arguably began in the early s. 1 To manage these large amounts of data, and to derive insight into biological phenomena, biological scientists have turned to a variety of computational tools. As a rule, tools can be characterized as devices that help scientists do what they.

    A thorough understanding of planktonic organisms is the first step towards a real appreciation of the diversity, biology, and ecological importance of marine life. A detailed knowledge of their distribution and community composition is particularly important since these organisms are often very delicate and sensitive to change, and can be used as early indicators of environmental change.
