early bloom
the stage at which to cut alfalfa for hay; when 10% of the crop is in bloom.
early breeding
1. in seasonal breeding management systems it is customary to commence mating on a specific day in the expectation that the offspring will be born at a time to take most advantage of a seasonal peak of pasture. Early mating, before the recommended day, may be because of an expected poor level of fertility or similar overriding factor.
2. mating before the recommended age for that particular class or breed of stock; usually to maximize the productive life of the individual animal.
early fetal recovery
the use of embryo transfer in test matings to increase the speed of the program and reduce the time required in gestation to determine the constitution of the fetus.
early genes
genes expressed during early development of the fetus.
early pregnancy hormone (factor)
identified in mice and several other species including sheep, cattle, pigs, humans; appears in the blood within a few hours of conception and persists for several weeks; identifiable by laboratory test.

Patient discussion about early

Q. What are the Early Symptoms of Colon Cancer? My Father is 82 years old and has been suffering from rectal bleeding lately. The doctor sent him to an urgent colonoscopy in order to rule out colon cancer. Are there early symptoms to this disease?

A. Colon cancr signs vary depending on the exact location of the tumor, for instance a lower tumor that is located in the rectum might cause rectal bleeding and one that is located in the right side of the colon might grow and cause anemia.

Q. What to do for early Lyme that's not responding to treatment? I came down with Lyme disease three months ago with a bulls-eye rash. Even though it was supposedly a recent case, I already was having Bell's palsy, memory loss, trouble thinking of words, joint arthritis, severe bone pain, and fatigue. I took 100mg doxycycline 2x a day, as my doctor prescribed, for 3 weeks, but still felt bad, so I took it for 3 more weeks. When I stopped after 6 weeks, all my symptoms came back and I kept getting worse. I finally convinced my doctors to give me a refill, and I've been taking the same prescription since then. Any time when I'm late on a dose or eat something with magnesium, I get very sick again. I'm not getting better, I'm merely suppressing the Lyme disease, and it comes back whenever I stop the antibiotics. What can I do to actually get rid of it? Higher dose doxycycline? Another antibiotic? Two antibiotics at once? IV antibiotics? Supplements? (I'm biased against this, but) Rife machines?

A. I did test positive for Lyme disease on the ELISA test.

I think it is just disseminated (I've been having Bell's palsy), so maybe I need 400mg doxy/day (200mg 2x a day) in order to reach the proper concentrations to inhibit B. burgdorferi in the CSF.

Q. I want to know what the early autism symptoms. I am very much concerned about my child’s health. So I want to know what the early autism symptoms are.

A. Love to know the affection you have on your child. Although there are many different symptoms that may show up in your child, it usually shows up in the way of social development, communication skills or repetitive symptoms. It also is worth noting that the symptoms are not usually limited to just a few. In fact, an autistic child may display symptoms that span all of these three different categories.

Survival of Herring Gull Larus argentatus chicks: an experimental analysis of the need for early breeding.
It should be noted that selection for early breeding in 1993 was not a simple result of early breeding pairs producing large broods (cf.
Linear selection gradients confirmed that selection was causal and directional on both hatching date and brood size in 1993, that is, the selection pressure toward early breeding was a genuine case of fecundity-independent selection (Table 2).
In a high-density year followed by another high-density year, selection toward early breeding could be particularly intense, if late-hatched young are excluded from territories or optimal habitats by early-hatched ones.
6 flowers/10 bushes, [Mathematical Expression Omitted]), than in January of the years when early breeding did not occur (19.
scandens fed significantly more on Opuntia flowers in January of the four years when early breeding occurred (79.
The proportion of Opuntia seeds, the second most common item in the January diet, did not differ significantly between years with early breeding and years with no breeding.
We found that laying date was advanced significantly less in territories with an early breeding start in 1993 than in those territories with a late start in 1993 (linear regression: Y = 4.
Hence, it is possible that selection for early breeding is counteracted by selection against low nestling mass, suggesting the potential for a parental tradeoff between two different aspects of offspring quality, earliness and mass.
Costs of early breeding can be expressed in different ways.
