Conclusion: Ovarian mature cystic teratomas are common tumors especially during the reproductive period with low rates of covert bilaterality, complications and malignant transformation. The treatment should be directed on the basis of age, fertility desire or presence of another pelvic pathology rather than the size or bilaterality.
Mature drivers who successfully complete an approved mature driver improvement course can qualify for reduced insurance premiums. California law allows insurance companies to determine the percentage of premium reduction. The insurance carrier can refuse to give a reduced rate to those who have poor driving records. You may wish to ask your insurance company about your eligibility and the amount of discount prior to taking an approved mature driver improvement course.
Unmanaged old-growth forests have a more diverse stand structure and harbor more deadwood than managed forests (Chatterjee and others 2009). Natural stand dynamics proceed from a phase with abundant offspring to a stage with rapid height growth and canopy expansion to late stages with over-mature and finally decaying trees. Over-mature trees and deadwood with large diameters are usually absent from managed temperate forests. Their conservation may reduce timber yield, but these old trees are of high value for biodiversity conservation by providing habitats for numerous specialized organisms, including hole-nesting birds, bats, xylophagous insects, fungi, lichens, and bryophytes, that are rare or absent from the earlier development stages (Schiegg 2000; Ódor and others 2006; Hilmo and others 2009).
The studied forest includes the full spectrum of development stages in a forest dynamics cycle. Five structurally defined development stages were distinguished following Stöcker (1997) (see Table 1). In each stage, five plots of 10 m 10 m were established. Due to the limited size of the old-growth stand, it was not possible to select the sample plots with a completely randomized design. However, the plots of a given development stage were more or less evenly spread over the forest area to avoid clumping of replicate plots in certain sections of the forest.
For extrapolating to the landscape level, we quantified the frequency of the five development stages in the whole study area of 300 ha. We chose four transects following the 925, 950, 975, and 1,000 m contour lines and assigned the forest at intervals of 20 m distance to the five development stages defined in Table 1. Patches showing within a 10-m radius of the sample point the structural characteristics of two development stages were assigned by 50% to these two stages (this approach was necessary at 5% of the sample points). Bogs and forested scree fields were excluded from this calculation. The percental frequency values of the five stages were averaged over the four transects and extrapolated to the entire forest.
Our study demonstrates the high significance of patches with over-mature and decaying trees for carbon storage in Central European natural coniferous forests, a result which is probably transferable to other mountain forest ecosystems in the temperate zone. The conservation value of old and decaying trees for protecting specialized taxa of forest biodiversity is already well established (Ódor and others 2006; Hauck and others 2012b; Dittrich and others 2012). The present study quantifies the important role of over-mature and decaying forest development stages for ecosystem carbon storage that has rarely been examined in a landscape-scale context. Our results support the view that the decay stage at the end of a forest dynamics cycle with the breakdown of the stand does not decrease, but rather increase, ecosystem carbon storage, because the SOC store remains high and the biomass reduction occurs only after a considerable lag phase in the regeneration and initial phases of the next forest generation. This may be a characteristic of natural forests in cool and moist climates where large forest fires are rare and biomass reduction after break-down or disturbance occurs more gradually. The findings should be an additional incentive to protect the over-mature and decay stages of mountain forests with high SOC stores.

Toward the end of the follicular phase, high estrogen levels trigger your pituitary gland to release a surge of luteinizing hormone (LH), the hormone associated with the luteal phase. LH activates the mature egg to escape the follicle and the ovary (ovulation).
Starting in your late 30s, your FSH levels may still increase during your follicular phase, but your LH levels may not spike as they did previously. As a result, the follicle may mature faster than the egg inside and release it too soon. These eggs may not be viable for pregnancy.
Although the brain stops growing in size by early adolescence, the teen years are all about fine-tuning how the brain works. The brain finishes developing and maturing in the mid-to-late 20s. The part of the brain behind the forehead, called the prefrontal cortex, is one of the last parts to mature. This area is responsible for skills like planning, prioritizing, and making good decisions.
The teen brain has an amazing ability to adapt and respond to new experiences and situations. Taking challenging classes, exercising, and engaging in creative activities like art or music can strengthen brain circuits and help the brain mature.
Despite the stresses and challenges that come with adolescence, most teens go on to become healthy adults. Some changes in the brain during this critical phase of development actually help support resilience and mental health over the long term.
As a mature worker, trying to get back into the workforce or change careers can be difficult. There are several opportunities and services dedicated to helping mature workers get the assistance and information they need, including our Workforce 55+ program.
The aim of Workforce 55+ is to help mature workers return to the workforce through an "earn while you learn" program. The program partners with community-based, nonprofit organizations and government agencies to provide participants with training to update their skills. Program participants receive counseling, assessments, and training to obtain employment.
At Cambridge, all undergraduate students are a member of one of our 29 undergraduate Colleges. All Cambridge Colleges admit mature students, but there are three that are exclusively for mature students aged 21 or over:
