A REVIEW OF SENSING AND DISTRIBUTED DETECTION ALGORITHMS FOR COGNITIVE RADIO SYSTEMS

Optimized spectrum sensing using distributed detection techniques for secondary user spectrum access is becoming important in Cognitive Radio (CR) systems, which have been proposed to utilize the available frequency spectrum more efficiently. For achieving best performance and ensuring minimal acceptable interference to spectrum owners, it is important to accurately sense and detect the presence or absence of primary licensed users. For this purpose, the solutions learned within the framework

Plant-parasitic nematodes such as Longidorus euonymus and Helicotylenchus multicintctus are species widely distributed in central Europe as well as in Mediterranean area. In Greece, both species have been previously reported but no morphometrics or molecular data were available for these species. Nematode surveys in the rhizosphere of grapevines in Athens carried out in 2016 and 2017, yielded a Longidorus species identified as Longidorus euonymus. Similarly, a population of Helicotylenchus

Resistance and tolerance reactions of winter wheat lines to Heterodera filipjevi in Turkey

. neglectus), other cyst-forming nematodes (e.g. H. avenae, H. filipjevi, and H. latipons) and two Fusarium species (F. culmorum and F. pseudograminearum). The most resistant lines are then distributed to international collaborators for use in their breeding programs. However, the habits and nature of CCN is complex due to the existence of pathotypes, which require long-term investment strategies. This is vital to ensure that a selected resistant wheat line can target as many different pathotypes as
