Benthic foraminiferal δ¹³C data from site 502 in the Caribbean Sea (sill depth 1800 m) indicate that throughout the past 2.6 m.y., glacial δ¹³C values in the middepth Atlantic were higher during glaciations than interglaciations. This is interpreted as indicating a greater proportion of Upper North Atlantic Deep Water (UNADW)...
The adsorption equilibrium and kinetic behavior exhibited
by β-lactoglobulin at silanized silicon surfaces of varying
hydrophobicity were examined using ellipsometry. Adsorption
equilibrium results were used to construct adsorption
isotherms; the adsorbed mass of β-lactoglobulin was observed
to increase with increasing surface hydrophobicity, within a
defined range of hydrophobicity. Adsorption kinetics...
Ellipsometry was used to study the effects of surface energetics
and temperature on the equilibrium adsorptive behavior exhibited by
β-lactoglobulin. β-Lactoglobulin isotherms at 25, 37, and 55°C were
constructed for this purpose. The surfaces of acrylic, polycarbonate,
polyester, glass, and #304 stainless steel were contacted with protein
solutions of varying...
Zora Neale Hurston was a Black American writer
during the period of the Harlem Renaissance. The
purpose of this study is to show that three of her four
novels form a protracted discussion of a particular
type of freedom which was of especial interest to
Hurston. The study seeks to...

Cytokinins are a group of plant hormones mediating cell division and
differentiation. Zeatin is a naturally occurring and highly active cytokinin that is rapidly
metabolized in Phaseolus seeds. The metabolites and enzymes mediating the conversion
have been studied extensively. Zeatin metabolic enzymes may be utilized in studying the

Ports in the United States have a special relationship to their local economies. They frequently have more economic development authority than other municipalities and are significantly affected by international and national as well as local economic events. This publication is intended to help you understand your port's role in your...
Harvesting costs were determined for commercial thinning of young stands to
achieve vegetation and wildlife objectives. This included replicated comparisons of
thinning treatments. Treatments were defined based on residual tree stocking after
thinning. Study procedures were developed and evaluated to improve statistical
relevance. Multiple linear regression models were used to...
