Cambial activity in white spruce stems in Alaska was observed
from April, 1964 to September, 1965 in over 300 samples taken from
50- to 60-year-old natural stands. Mitotic index was used as a measure
of the rate of periclinal division of fusiform cells in the cambial
zone. Anticlinal divisions are...
Three types of experiments were designed to further characterize
the tryptophan decarboxylating enzyme of Reed and Crecelius
1) Light inhibition studies were made with etiolated pea seedlings
to determine the in vitro response of the tryptophan decarboxylating
enzyme. Assays of indoleacetic acid oxidase (IAA oxidase)
and guaiacol-active pea seedling...
An interactive man-hybrid computer algorithm is presented
for searching a set of dynamic system parameters which effect a
compromise between performance characteristics and give satisfactory
system sensitivity without any analytical calculations or a
priori indices of performance. The parameter search is conducted
in a real time design situation in which...
