Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
Data have been taken from many sources, including both compilations and the primary literature - where conflicts were found, the value deemed most reliable was chosen. The reference was peer-reviewed. In addition, the reference sources are indicated although not leading to sufficient information on the material & method used.
