Between the old and the new Rue du Temple, there was the Temple, a sinister group of towers, lofty, erect, and isolated in the middle of a vast, battlemented enclosure.
First, the vibration of each bell mounts straight upwards, pure and, so to speak, isolated from the others, into the splendid morning sky; then, little by little, as they swell they melt together, mingle, are lost in each other, and amalgamate in a magnificent concert.
If we turn to nature to test the truth of these remarks, and look at any small isolated area, such as an oceanic island, although the total number of the species inhabiting it, will be found to be small, as we shall see in our chapter on geographical distribution; yet of these species a very large proportion are endemic,--that is, have been produced there, and nowhere else.
Hence more new places will be formed, and the competition to fill them will be more severe, on a large than on a small and isolated area.
It cannot be doubted that if there were land-birds to pick up the seeds when first cast on shore, and a soil better adapted for their growth than the loose blocks of coral, that the most isolated of the lagoon-islands would in time possess a far more abundant Flora than they now have.
From these facts I believe that the waders, after the innumerable web-footed species, are generally the first colonists of small isolated islands.
When the isolated position of these small islands in the midst of a vast ocean -- their great distance from any land excepting that of coral formation, attested by the value which the inhabitants, who are such bold navigators, attach to a stone of any kind,  -- and the slowness of the currents of the open sea, are all considered, the occurrence of pebbles thus transported does appear wonderful.
To this end I left the more frequented regions, the wooded valleys, the corn-fields, and the meadow-lands, and proceeded to mount the steep acclivity of Wildfell, the wildest and the loftiest eminence in our neighbourhood, where, as you ascend, the hedges, as well as the trees, become scanty and stunted, the former, at length, giving place to rough stone fences, partly greened over with ivy and moss, the latter to larches and Scotch fir-trees, or isolated
The barking of dogs showed the carriage had reached the village, and all that was left was the empty fields all round, the village in front, and he himself isolated
and apart from it all, wandering lonely along the deserted highroad.
It was almost impossible to remember who he was--only a petty chief of a conveniently isolated
corner of Mindanao, where we could in comparative safety break the law against the traffic in firearms and ammunition with the natives.
The soil of all the former states has the appearance of an alluvial deposit; and isolated
rocks have been found, of a nature and in situations which render it difficult to refute the opinion that they have been transferred to their present beds by floating ice.
RABV (genotype 1) has never been isolated
from bats outside North and South America, but rabies-related viruses have been isolated
from bats elsewhere.
To provide maximum control and reliability, storage administrators historically built SANs as completely isolated
networks, in which each application or user group had its own physical SAN fabric.
The potential use of circulating DNA for cancer detection could be greatly enhanced by developing isolation methods that result in less degradation and by adapting assay methods to use the low amounts that can be isolated
2 has a central hub that is isolated
within a thin section.
