elevation

An orthographic (flattened;nonperspective) drawing of the various faces of a building, component, or improvement, showing examples of relevant details and something to indicate scale.One may have elevations of each side of a building,usually with a person standing nearby to illustrate scale; elevations of cabinets in kitchens or offices; or elevations of a storm sewer system showing a representation of the incline.

We evaluated changes in fish assemblage structure along the elevational gradient using rank-abundance curves, in which the abundance is plotted against the total number of species.
There are two ways to quantify elevational patterns in species richness: alpha and gamma diversity studies (McCain, 2005).
The study was conducted in areas of green bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) cultivation at seven locations along an elevational gradient: Lomanis, Cilacap Regency (7[degrees]41'06 32"N, 109[degrees]01'12 24"E, 8 m above sea level (asl)), Gunung Tugel, Purwokerto (7[degrees]28'03 92"N, 109[degrees]14'06 35"E, 106 m asl), Banteran, Sikapat, and Banyumas Regency (7[degrees]20'00 43"N, 109[degrees]16'29 49"N, 224, and 442 m asl, resp.), Limpakuwus and Tuwel, Tegal Regency (7[degrees]09'46 38"N, 109[degrees]09'06 66"E, 664 and 887 m asl), and Serang, Pubalingga Regency (7[degrees]14'48 41"E, 109[degrees]17'28 91"N, 1077 m asl).
Elevational clines represent a "natural laboratory" within which we can better understand how such traits fluctuate in response to growing conditions.
To estimate elevational variation, a matrix of 18 elevation categories by six sites was built from digital elevation models (scale 1:50,000; INEGI, 2003, http://mapserver.inegi.org.mx/ DescargaMDEWeb).
But TAP languages easily beat most central New Guinea languages in elevational complexity: they distinguish three heights (above, below, and level, with respect to deictic center), enriched in some languages with sub distinctions of height related to distance (Abui), steepness of slope (Kamang, Western Pantar), and directionality with respect to the slope (traversing slope or following it) (Introduction, p.
My permits allowed me to collect five specimens of each species--essentially, one specimen from each of five elevational sites.
The second part discusses an assortment of topics, including symbiogenesis, cognitive ecology, genetic draft, genomic conflict, avian evolutionary genomics, elevational gradients, cytonuclear genomic interactions, molecular phylogenetics of Australian flora, introgression of crop alleles, facilitation, assisted gene flow, the genus Spartina, diversification on islands, mate choice, thermal ecology, diversity and competition, ecosystem collapse in the face of climate change, conservation biology, forest lepidoptera, biomass distribution of forests, and symbiont transmission.
