This booklet is dedicated to the swiftly growing to be sector of technological know-how facing constitution and houses of organic surfaces of their relation to specific function(s). This quantity, written via a group of experts from diversified disciplines, covers numerous floor services similar to safety, safeguard, water shipping, anti-wetting, self cleansing, mild mirrored image and scattering, and acoustics. simply because organic surfaces have an almost unending power of technological principles for the improvement of recent fabrics and platforms, inspirations from biology may be fascinating for a huge variety of themes in floor engineering.

Flüchten oder Bleiben? Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe und Ressourcen von Emigranten im Nationalsozialismus

Sylke Bartmann zeigt anhand der Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe von Emigranten unterschiedliche Umgehensweisen mit dem Nationalsozialismus und damit verbundene Repressalien und Bedrohungen auf. Der Fokus richtet sich dabei auf den Einzelnen als Akteur und Gestalter seines eigenen Lebens. Es wird die Frage beantwortet, inwieweit in den Prozessen der Biographisierung Ressourcen zum Ausdruck kommen, die das Leben im Nationalsozialismus (weiterhin) als zusammenhängend und sinnvoll erscheinen lassen - auch wenn dem einzelnen Menschen die Welt manchmal sinnentleert gegenüberzustehen scheint.

In the other echinoderm classes, different immunoreactivity patterns occur. 4; Fig. 13C, D). 4; Fig. 13E, F). 4). Common to all sea urchin species, however, is a moderate immunolabelling of the cuticle (Fig. 13G, H, I). 4; Fig. 13J, K). These results suggest that both crinoids and ophiuroids possess adhesive secretions sharing many similarities with the adhesive material of asteroids.
