Analyzing cultural localization in online tourism promotion

Mele, Emanuele ; Cantoni, Lorenzo (Dir.) ; Kerkhof, Peter (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2020 ; 2020COM006.

Tourism and culture are strongly intertwined. People can experience culture before, during and after their journey, both in the offline and in the online world. Arguably, the internet is among the main sources of inspiration and information retrieval for tourists, who navigate social media and websites to know more about the destination, its products and services. Following the developments in...

3D models related to the publication: New material of Epiaceratherium and a new species of Mesaceratherium clear up the phylogeny of the early Rhinocerotidae (Perissodactyla)

Tissier, Jérémy ; Antoine, Pierre-Olivier ; Becker, Damien

In: MorphoMuseuM, 2020, vol. 6, no. 3, p. e116

The present 3D Dataset contains two 3D models described in Tissier et al. ( the only known complete mandible of the early-branching rhinocerotoid Epiaceratherium magnum Uhlig, 1999, and a hypothetical reconstruction of the complete archetypic skull of Epiaceratherium Heissig, 1969, created by merging three cranial parts from three distinct Epiaceratherium...

3D morphology of pharyngeal dentition of the genus Capoeta (Cyprinidae): Implications for taxonomy and phylogeny

Ayvazyan, Anna ; Vasilyan, Davit ; Böhme, Madelaine

In: Journal of Zoological Systematics and Evolutionary Research, 2019, vol. 57, no. 1, p. 179–190

Capoeta is a herbivorous cyprinid fish genus, widely distributed in water bodies of Western Asia. Recent species show a distinct biogeographic pattern with endemic distribution in large fluvial drainage basins. As other cyprinids, the species of this genus are characterized by the presence of the pharyngeal bone with pharyngeal teeth. Despite this, the detailed morphology of the pharyngeal...

Accounting based valuation and implied discount factor

Brughelli, Moreno ; Barone-Adesi, Giovanni (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2012 ; 2012ECO003.

The focus of this doctoral thesis is on the determination of the implied cost of capital in the equity market. Three issues are investigated in detail: the relations between the cost of equity capital, the credit spread and the economic growth; the links between realized market returns and the cost of capital; and the forecasting power of the implied discount factor in predicting market...

Analysis of cell identity, morphology, apoptosis and mitotic activity in a primary neural cell culture system in Drosophila

Moraru, Manuela M ; Egger, Boris ; Bao, Diarra B. ; Sprecher, Simon G.

In: Neural Development, 2012, vol. 7, p. 14

In Drosophila, most neurogenetic research is carried out in vivo. Mammalian research demonstrates that primary cell culture techniques provide a powerful model to address cell autonomous and non-autonomous processes outside their endogenous environment. We developed a cell culture system in Drosophila using wildtype and genetically manipulated primary neural tissue for long-term observations. We...

Allopolyploid origin of highly invasive Centaurea stoebe s.l. (Asteraceae)

Mráz, Patrik ; Garcia-Jacas, Núria ; Gex-Fabry, Emilie ; Susanna, Alfonso ; Barres, Laia ; Müller-Schärer, Heinz

In: Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, 2012, vol. 62, no. 2, p. 612–623

Spotted knapweed (Centaurea stoebe) occurs from Western Asia to Western Europe both as diploid and tetraploid cytotypes, predominantly in single-cytotype populations with higher frequency of diploid populations. Interestingly, only tetraploids have been recorded so far from its introduced range in North America where they became highly invasive. We performed phylogenetic and network analyses of...
