It is estimated that in 1985, 29.0 per cent of the coca leaves produced in the Andean subregion came from Bolivia, 10.7 per cent from Colombia, 2.3 per cent from Ecuador and 58.0 per cent from Peru.

  Potential Supply and Cost of Biomass: Results
Half of the subregions have one or two soil categories that have significantly higher yields than their other soil categories, and half of the subregions have one or two soil categories that produce significantly lower yields than their other soil categories.
Thus, although the proportion of cropland or pastureland acreage in a particular soil category is uniform for all counties in that subregion, the actual acreage of that soil category is unique to a county as are the total cropland and pastureland acreages.
The potential supplies of switchgrass in counties in the Northwest and Smokies subregions are due to a single uncommon soil category (4e in the Northwest subregion and 3-4s in the Smokies subregion) with a low projected land rent and moderate switchgrass yield.

 ARC | Research Reports
To place the subregions in context, the Northern and Southern subregions' economies are of roughly the same size (as measured by the number of establishments and employment) but the Central subregion's economy is much smaller.
Ignoring the decline in the Southern subregion's birth rate from 1987 to 1992 (which mirrors that of the U.S. economy), the difference in the birth rates is relatively stable over the three periods, even as all three subregions experience a decline in the rates.
Ignoring the up tick in the Southern subregion's death rates from 1982 to 1992 (which mirrors that of the U.S. as a whole), the death rates for the Northern and Southern subregions are relatively similar and are lower than those for the Central subregion.

 SECURITY COUNCIL IS TOLD PROBLEMS OF CENTRAL AFRICAN SUBREGION NEED COMPREHENSIVE, INTEGRATED CROSS-BORDER APPROACH
The mission determined that a holistic approach was needed to address the linkage between conflict and poverty, involving all actors concerned with the region, he said.  The Secretary-General agreed with the assessment as a whole, and requested a thorough review of all programmes of the Organization in terms of their effectiveness.
It was the Africans themselves who had to define themselves, he said.  Their subregional efforts should be transparent and pragmatic.  Better use should be made of multinational and bilateral potential before considering a United Nations office and international efforts, though additional assistance should be provided where appropriate.  He supported the appointment of a special envoy.
He said that the holding of a forthcoming forum would be important for transparent cooperation between countries of the subregion.  He also agreed that the private sector should be involved in developing the appropriate exploitation of natural resources in the area.

 An Error-Controlled Octree Data Structure for Large-Scale Visualization
However, if the subregion is near the center, the node whose bounding box contains the whole subregion might be the root making it necessary to re-process all points to build the sub-tree.
When both trees have the same depth (four), the RMS error of the representation of the small subregion is greater than the error of the representation of the main region.
In the subregion, we do not have such constant-colored spots, and the RMS error is high.

 The Globally Adaptive Algorithm
In the original algorithm, the subregion set was an ordered list with the subregions ordered according to the corresponding error estimates, and the algorithm proceeded from one stage to the next by always choosing the subregion with largest estimated error for subdivision.
This subregion was divided in half along one coordinate axis to produce two new subregions, and then the algorithm continued with steps iii) and iv) above.
The error assigned to each subregion for the purpose of determining the position of the subregion in the subregion heap is the maximum of the estimated errors from the integration rule results from that subregion for the different components of the vector integrand.

The Foothills Fescue Subregion occurs largely on morainal, glaciolacustrine and outwash deposits along the lower flanks of the Foothills Geologic Belt, the Porcupine Hills and onto the adjacent plains area.
The climate of the Foothills Fescue Subregion differs from that of the Northern Fescue Subregion in having a greater frequency of chinooks and thus, a milder winter climate.
Wildlife in the forests and shrublands of the southwestern rivers is similar to that of the Milk River in the Mixedgrass Subregion.

I. The Meeting of Experts of the Andean Subregion was held in Quito, Ecuador on June 21 and 22, 2001, attended by delegates from Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, and Venezuela.
The two groups began their work in the afternoon: the delegates of the guest countries and the 11 representatives of Ecuador met in the Simón Bolívar Room; and the representatives of governmental sectors and civil society of Ecuador met in the Cayambe Room.
The principal obstacle is the lack of genuine commitment to application of the Convention on the part of the governments of the majority of the countries.

 Image subregion querying using color correlograms - Patent 6430312
This task, called image subregion querying, is made challenging by the wide variety of effects, such as different viewing positions, camera noise and variation, and object occlusion, that cause the same object to have a different appearance in different images.
The general theme behind the extensions are the improvement of storage efficiency of the correlogram without compromising the image discrimination capability of the correlogram and the use of additional information (such as an edge) to further refine the correlogram which improves image retrieval performance.
The image subregion querying problem may be defined as follows: given as an input a subregion query Q of an image I and an image set S, retrieve from S those images Q' in which the query Q appears according.

 ANHIC: Lower Foothills Subregion, Alberta Tourism, Parks, Recreation and Culture
Although this subregion is somewhat cooler in summer than the adjacent, lower elevation Boreal Forest subregions, it is warmer in winter because it is often not influenced by cold Arctic air masses.
The upper boundary to the Upper Foothills Subregion is marked by the absence of mixed deciduous-coniferous forests (absence of aspen, balsam poplar and birch) and the occurrence of a nearly pure coniferous forest cover.
Many of the animal species of the Lower Foothills Subregion that inhabit coniferous forests are wide-ranging species that are common to spruce and pine forests of the Boreal Forest, Foothills, and Rocky Mountain Natural Regions.
