ELlA M. LEIBOWITZ Director, clever Observatory Chair, medical Organizing Committee The overseas symposium on "Astronomical Time sequence" was once held on the Tel Aviv collage campus in Tel Aviv, from December 30 1996 to January 11997. It used to be prepared so one can rejoice the twenty fifth anniversary of the Florence and George clever Observatory (WO) operated by means of Tel Aviv collage. the positioning of the 1 meter telescope of the observatory is close to the city of Mitzpe-Ramon, a few 220 km south of Tel Aviv, on the middle of the Israeli Negev highland. there have been significant purposes for the alternative of Time sequence because the sub­ ject subject for our symposium. One is principally desirous about the subject material itself, and one is said fairly to the clever Observatory. there's not often any doubt that astronomical time sequence are one of the so much historical ideas in human civilization and tradition. you can still even say that astronomical time sequence preceeded astronomy itself, because the impact of the day /night cycle on the earth is one of the first and such a lot primary impression that provoke a. person, or, in truth, such a lot residing creatures on the earth. An echo of this concept. should be heard within the Biblical tale of construction, the place the concept that of evening and day preceeds the production of the astronomical objects.

Ecomorphology of fishes

Ecomorphology is the comparative learn of the impression of morphology on ecological relationships and the evolutionary influence of ecological elements on morphology in several lifestyles periods, populations, species, groups, and evolutionary lineages. The ebook studies early makes an attempt at qualitative descriptions of ecomorphological styles in fishes, particularly these of the Russian institution.

Fire in Ecosystems of Boreal Eurasia

One of many first precedence components between joint East/West learn courses is the rational use of usual assets and sustainable improvement of areas. within the boreal region of North the US and Eurasia forests are economically vitally important and, while hugely liable to disturbances. as a result of its measurement and ecological services the boreal wooded area sector and its so much dynamic disturbance issue - fireplace - play a tremendous position in atmosphere procedures on international scale.

Most of this science is deduced from detailed studies of pulsar time series.
