Middle-income groups in Kenya : Conflicting realities between upward mobility and uncertainty

Neubert, Dieter

In:, 2019, vol. 1, no. 4, p. Article: 1.4

For more than a decade scholars mostly from economy and development studies have described the rise of a newly emerging ‘middle class’ in the Global South including Africa. This has led to a ‘middle class narrative’ with the ‘middle class’ as the backbone of economic and democratic development. Especially with regard to the stability of the position of the people in the ‘middle’,...

Rhinocerotidae from the early middle miocene locality Gračanica (Bugojno basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina)

Becker, Damien ; Tissier, Jérémy

In: Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments, 2019, p. -

The early middle Miocene (European Land Mammal Zone MN5) locality Gračanica (Bugojno Basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina) has yielded numerous well-preserved dental remains of four Rhinocerotidae species: Brachypotherium brachypus, Lartetotherium sansaniense, Plesiaceratherium balkanicum sp. nov. and Hispanotherium cf. matritense. This rhinocerotid assemblage is typical of the Orleanian European Land ...

Alterations in the cortical control of standing posture during varying levels of postural threat and task difficulty

Tokuno, Craig D. ; Keller, Martin ; Carpenter, Mark G. ; Márquez, Gonzalo ; Taube, Wolfgang

In: Journal of Neurophysiology, 2018, vol. 120, no. 3, p. 1010–1016

Cortical excitability increases during the performance of more difficult postural tasks. However, it is possible that changes in postural threat associated with more difficult tasks may in themselves lead to alterations in the neural strategies underlying postural control. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine whether changes in postural threat are responsible for the...

Biochronological and palaeobiogeographical significance of the earliest Miocene mammal fauna from Northern Vietnam

Antoine, Pierre-Olivier ; Made, Jan van der ; Métais, Grégoire ; Phuc, Laq The ; Quan, Quý Tr??ng ; Schneider, Simon ; Tran, Dang Ngoc ; Vasilyan, Davit ; Viet, Luong The ; Böhme, Madelaine

In: Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments, 2018, vol. 98, no. 2, p. 287–313

Current scientific knowledge of Tertiary fossils from south of the Ailao Shan-Red River shear zone is extremely poor, in sharp contrast with the situation nowadays, as the area of Laos and Vietnam is regarded as a global hotspot of biodiversity. In this context, the few localities that yielded fossil assemblages are of first importance for the understanding of Cenozoic palaeobiogeography and...
