 Large blue butterflies
Much of the research at the Universities of Copenhagen and Aarhus on large blue butterflies is done in collaboration with other research groups, particularly the other members of the EU-TMR network on social evolution.
At the Universities of Copenhagen and Aarhus we are investigating how the Alcon blue is able to use different host ants, and what consequences this may have for the evolution and conservation of large blue butterflies.
The species of large blue butterfly we study at the Universities of Copenhagen and Aarhus is the Alcon blue ( Maculinea alcon).

 Sufficiently Large
Often the audience is not quite aware just how large, 'sufficiently large' really is. It can be as large, or considerably larger than the number of fundamental particles (atoms, (baryons, leptons)) in the universe.
Mathematicians frequently use the phrase "for sufficiently large values of N".
Your guess at the exponent may be out by many orders of magnitude.

 Little and Large - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Little and Large appeared on BBC TV from the late 1970s until their show was cancelled in 1991.
Little and Large are a British comedy double act comprised of straight man Syd Little (Born Cyril Mead in 1942) and comic Eddie Large (Born Edward McGuiness in 1941).
When they first appeared Little and Large were seen for a time as successors to Morecambe and Wise, who defected from the BBC to ITV in 1977, but despite the long run of their show the pair never entered the public consciousness in the way Eric and Ernie did.

 Colon (anatomy) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As the chyme moves through the large intestine, water is removed, while the chyme is mixed with mucus and bacteria, and becomes feces.
Although there are differences in the large intestine between different organisms, the large intestine is mainly responsible for storing waste, reclaiming water and maintaining the water balance and absorbing some vitamins, such as vitamin K.
In anatomy of the digestive system, the colon or large intestine or large bowel is the part of the intestine from the cecum to the rectum.

 Law of large numbers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In probability theory, several laws of large numbers say that the average of a sequence of random variables with a common distribution converges (in the senses given below) to their common expectation, in the limit as the size of the sequence goes to infinity.
The phrase "law of large numbers" is also sometimes used to refer to the principle that the probability of any possible event (even an unlikely one) occurring at least once in a series increases with the number of events in the series.
A consequence of the weak law of large numbers is the asymptotic equipartition property.

 Large numbers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Large numbers are numbers that are significantly larger than those ordinarily used in everyday life, for instance in simple counting or in monetary transactions.
With extremely large numbers, the relative error may be large, yet there may still be a sense in which we want to consider the numbers as "close in magnitude".
The first number is much larger than the second, due to the larger height of the power tower, and in spite of the small numbers 1.1 (however, if these numbers are made 1 or less, that greatly changes the result).

 Large denomination bills in U.S. currency - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However, the introduction of the electronic money system has made large-scale cash transactions obsolete; when combined with concerns about counterfeiting and the use of cash in unlawful activities such as the illegal drugs trade, this would seem to render it unlikely that the U.S. government will re-issue large denomination currency in the foreseeable future.
In March 2004, Alice Regina Pike attempted to use a $1,000,000 bill with a picture of the Statue of Liberty on the front to purchase $1671.55 in goods from a Wal-Mart in Covington, Georgia, for which she was then arrested.
Circulation of high-denomination bills was halted in 1969 by executive order of President Richard Nixon, in an effort to combat organized crime.

 Large cardinal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, a cardinal is called a large cardinal if it belongs to a class of cardinals, the existence of which provably cannot be proved within the standard axiomatic set theory ZFC, if one assumes ZFC itself is consistent.
Therefore the discussion of large cardinals takes place in a realm of conditional proofs, which (according to the consensus view of logicians) will remain so.
Erdős cardinals (The existence of the Aleph-1-Erdős cardinal implies the existence of 0#, which implies the consistency of Erdős cardinals for all countable ordinals.)

 Digestive System / Regions of the Digestive System / Small & Large Intestine
This is largely a local reflex action in response to chemical and mechanical irritation from the chyme and in response to distention of the intestinal wall.
The large intestine consists of the colon, rectum, and anal canal.
The small intestine finishes the process of digestion, absorbs the nutrients, and passes the residue on to the large intestine.

 Large Intestine
The large intestine or "bowel" is sometimes called the "garbage dump" of the body, because the materials that reach it are of very small use to the body and are sent on to be disposed of.
A common disorder of the large intestine is inflammation of the appendix, or appendicitis.
The large intestine, or colon, consists of ascending, transverse, descending, and sigmoid portions.

 Emerald
From a chemical-mineralogical point of view, emeralds are beryllium-aluminium-silicates with a good hardness of 7_ to 8, and belong, like the light blue aquamarine, the tender pink morganite, the golden heliodor and the pale green beryl, to the large gemstone family of the beryls.
Emeralds are also cut in many other, mainly classical shapes, but if the raw material contains a large number of inclusions, it may often be cut into a gently rounded cabochon, or into one of the emerald beads which are so popular in India.
And one more piece of advice on the purchase of an emerald: whilst diamonds generously scintillate their fire in sizes below 1 carat, you should go for larger dimensions when acquiring a coloured gemstone.

 Large diffeomorphism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics and theoretical physics, a large diffeomorphism is a diffeomorphism that cannot be continuously connected to the identity diffeomorphism (because it is topologically non-trivial).
For example, a two-dimensional real torus has a SL(2,Z) group of large diffeomorphisms by which the one-cycles a,b of the torus are transformed into their integer linear combinations.
This group of large diffeomorphisms is called the modular group.

 Sufficiently large - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Sufficiently large" is sometimes the subject of mathematical humor; for example, as in the mathematician's joke "π = 3, for sufficiently large values of 3".
In mathematics, the phrase sufficiently large is used in contexts such as:
The phrase "sufficiently large" should not be confused with the phrases "arbitrarily large" or "infinitely large".

 Arbitrarily large - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For instance, it is true that prime numbers can be arbitrarily large, but it is not true that all sufficiently large numbers are prime.
It is also worth noting that "arbitrarily large" does not mean "infinitely large" - for instance, while prime numbers can be arbitrarily large, there is no such thing as an infinitely large prime.
In mathematics, the phrase arbitrarily large is used in contexts such as:

 Alaska class cruiser - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Alaska class of large cruisers was a small class of United States Navy vessels; while six were originally planned, only two were ever completed.
Although the gunnery and displacement of this class is midway between heavy cruisers and battleships, most auhorities feel that the Alaska s should not be considered as battlecruisers.
Changes in naval warfare meant that these ships never fulfilled this role.

 The Large Blue Butterfly
The decline in the Large Blue Butterfly population started in the 1950’s and continued for two decades until it actually became extinct in Britain during the seventies – no one knew what was causing the decline as we did not fully understand this butterfly’s amazing life cycle.
The Large Blue caterpillar initially feeds on the seeds and pollen of wild thyme until it is adopted by Myrmica ants, so it can feed on their larvae.
This meant that the outbreak of myxomatosis in the fifties not only devastated the rabbit population, but also meant that the ants, and therefore, the Large Blue, were unable to survive.
