Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
- ‘For instance, does light acclimation reflect a single integrated response, or is it the result of a combination of processes?’
- ‘The light acclimation is largely reversible within a few days.’
- ‘Total cellular levels of Hsps fluctuate with season and with laboratory acclimation.’
- ‘The patterns of seasonal acclimation of photosynthetic capacity in angiosperms are more variable.’
- ‘This is obviously due to carbohydrates which act as cryoprotectants and increase in concentration during cold acclimation as well as due to the anthocyanins.’
- ‘Metabolic clearance rate of GH in trout is also increased following seawater acclimation.’
- ‘Evidence is presented here that CKs carried in the transpiration stream may be important mediators for the acclimation of plants to leaf canopy density.’
- ‘One of the biggest dangers facing airmen in the desert is heat, and acclimation to that heat is vital to maintaining their health.’
- ‘This response is reflected in the actual acclimation and thus the adjustment of processes or structures on time-scales less than one generation.’
- ‘Studies have shown that long-term acclimations can be superimposed upon fast adaptive adjustment of the thermal stability.’
- ‘As a consequence, they are forced to cope with their direct environment and have evolved acclimations and adaptations to counteract the long- and short-term stresses they are exposed to.’
- ‘Where cultivation is used between rows, cover crops planted in August can accelerate acclimation for winter.’
- ‘The need for light acclimation and for optimization of the assimilatory processes is apparent in the vegetative stage of the plant and in young leaves.’
- ‘If acclimation to the stress factor is successful, the metabolic parameter will change dynamically until a new steady-state is achieved.’
- ‘Several studies have reported respiratory acclimation or adaptation to changes in temperature, and some back to pre-treatment levels.’
- ‘It may be stung a number of times before full acclimation occurs.’
- ‘One prominent adaptive mechanism to this temperature stress is known as cold hardening or acclimation.’
- ‘Phenological adjustment to contrasted seasonality has been considered a symptom of proper acclimation.’
- ‘Today, the only widely accepted way to fight a phobia is with real-world experimentation and acclimation.’
- ‘These findings of acclimation of root respiration are important to modelling respiration under different moisture and temperature regimes.’
