Given fixed coefficients as a consequence of the decomposability property of our model, an increase in any resource must be absorbed in fixed amounts and this requires a release of resources from other sectors and hence a shrinkage in their output levels.
The M-form and polycentrism relies on the alternative principle of near decomposability.
In spite of long-term similar organic matter input, significant differences in the microbial decomposability of the SOM of the pasture soils were found over 183 days of incubation.
Herrero and Villar (1989) showed that the only SEF among them with the property of additive decomposability with demographic weights is the following:
Associated with the decomposition of incoming organic materials is a diminution of particle size and a reduction in decomposability due to preferential loss of more labile components and potential interactions with soil minerals (e.
13]C CP/MAS NMR spectra for the organic materials obtained from the 2 different land uses indicated that this approach may be of limited value for differentiating between materials with different C/N ratios, and hence different decomposability.
These measures do not only reflect the severity of poverty but also satisfy the axiom of decomposability and additivity.
19) In particular, Foster (1983) shows that an inequality index satisfies the axioms of symmetry, replication invariance, income scale independence, decomposability, and the principle of transfers only if it is a positive multiple of the Theil index.
These results provide evidence that it is relative frequency, rather than absolute frequency, that affects the decomposability of morphologically complex words.
They go on to demonstrate how early care and education programs reflect many characteristics of Chaotic systems, including: 1) decomposability, 2) nonlinearity/nonpredictability, 3) sensitivity to initial conditions, 4) recursive symmetries between scales, 5) feedback mechanisms, and 6) the existence of attractors.
The results of these two studies are somewhat unexpected, since residue burning has been shown to be the quickest method of releasing nutrients tied up in crop residues, unlike residue decomposition, which depends on factors such as soil properties and decomposability of crop residues (Singh and Rengel 2007).
The ratio DPM/RPM is used directly in the model to allow for changes in the 'quality' or decomposability of the input from vegetation.
