This paper describes the analysis of data from a three-year gross time study of skyline, balloon, and helicopter yarding systems operating in Western Oregon. Data collection activities were designed and supervised by the Pacific Northwest Forest and Range Experiment Station, U.S.D.A. Forest Service. The specific logging systems studied were running...
A Stream Reach Inventory and Channel Stability Evaluation
procedure has been used to assess the nature and
extent of erosional nonpoint sources of pollution in the
Evans Creek basin, a tributary to the Rogue River, in
The study is based upon the results of the Oregon
Problems associated with quantification of deep water wave kinematics
and dynamics are examined. Summaries of Stokes' theory and Dean's
stream function theory are reported. A computer algorithm is developed
to solve the hydrodynamic characteristics for Stokes' fifth and third
order and linear theories. Tests are initiated to verify the results...
The elderly population in our society is increasing both in number
and proportion, with the life expectancy of women increasing more than
men. Their needs have been given increased attention in recent years.
Many studies have been done on clothing for older women, but few have
dealt with the older...
Larval mortality of leafcutting bee, Megachile pacifica (Panzer)
(= rotundata (F.)), is high, usually exceeding 50%. Parasites and
predators are not a limiting factor in the survival of the progeny.
The disease chalk brood has been an important mortality factor since
1974. Inadequate food supply, pollen and nectar, may affect...
In recent years the conversion of agricultural lands to more
intensive non-rural land uses has become a focus of increasing public
awareness and concern. The growing attention to farmland conversion
is manifested in increasing public policies and legilsation to protect
agricultural and forestry land uses. Nevertheless, our understanding
Out of 53 queens captured for initiating colonies in the
laboratory, 33 laid eggs (62 percent), 29 of these produced colonies
(55 percent), and 14 produced queens (26 percent). A behavioral model
depicts the activities of queens from spring emergence through colony
development. A discussion of its application to bumble...
Older and part-time students are enrolling in institutions of
higher education in increasing numbers, yet little research has
been conducted to see if these students perceive the campus
environment differently from younger, full-time students.
The purpose of this study was to compare the perceptions of
the college environment of four...
