Authors: Kyrkoudis T, Tsoucalas G, Fiska A Abstract The choice of Dedeagatch as the place where the station of the Adrianoupolis-Constantinople railway line was to be built was the reason for the foundation of the Greek city of Alexandroupolis (originally under the Ottoman government). The population grew in its early years mainly due to the settlement by railway and construction workers.

Cellular reproduction defines life, yet our textbook-level understanding of cell division is limited to a small number of model organisms centered around humans. The horizon on cell division variants is expanded here by advancing insights on the fascinating cell division modes found in the Apicomplexa, a key group of protozoan parasites. The Apicomplexa display remarkable variation in offspring number, whether karyokinesis follows each S/M-phase or not, and whether daughter cells bud in the cytoplasm or bud from the cortex. We find that the terminology used to describe the various manifestations of asexual apicomplexan cel...

Resumo El objetivo de este trabajo es presentar los principales sistemas de jerarquizaci ón que caracterizan al campo médico en México (y, por extensión, al de muchos países de Latinoamérica con condiciones similares). Adoptando el enfoque del estructuralismo genético de Bourdieu, la hipótesis es que la estructura del campo médico se corresponde con una serie de esquemas de per cepción y apreciación de sus agentes, que se basan en clasificaciones jerárquicas con base en las cuales se divide el trabajo y se distribuye el prestigio entre sus ...
