The purpose of this study was to gather participant/ campus data, and to measure morale and teaching faculty participation in institutional governance on the 107 California public community college campuses to determine if collective bargaining faculty have statistically higher or lower morale and greater or lesser participation in institutional governance....
Bunt or stinking smut is a major disease of wheat. In the U.S.
common bunt, Tilletia caries (DC) Tul. and T. foetida (Wallr) Liro,
is a threat to wheat production in the Pacific Northwest. Screening
trials conducted by USDA Cereal Investigations Project in Oregon,
from 1955-1980, revealed that a number...
A case study of the Eugene Water and Electric Board's planning
for the Minto Hydroelectric is examined in terms of social movement
theory. It is hypothesized that public works projects have a significant
likeness to a social movement and they conform in their
essential ingredients to social movement explanations. The...
Pharmacokinetics of theophylline and N-7 substituted
theophylline in rabbits when administered alone and in
various combinations were investigated. This thesis has
four chapters dealing with etophylline and theophylline;
proxyphylline and theophylline; dyphylline and theophylline;
and etophylline, proxyphylline and dyphylline pharmacokinetics
when administered concomitantly. All chapters
are interrelated. Each chapter has...
A series of four experiments were conducted to study
sulfa residues with market turkeys and to observe the
repletion, depletion and possible recycling effect from
In the first experiment, sulfaquinoxaline (S.Q.) was
fed at 0.015% level from 8 to 16 weeks of age. No significant
effects were observed...
This study examined time spent in various activities by
farm women. Emphasis was placed on household work time and
how time is apportioned among various household work
activities. Time use of farm women was compared to rural
nonfarm women and urban women. Data were from An
Interstate Comparison of Urban/Rural...
Investigations were conducted to determine the effect of prerigor pressurization (15,000 psi, 37°C, 2 min.) of beef muscle on the subsequent retail/case-life characteristics of the treated meat. In addition, the activity of the calcium activated factor (CAF) of prerigor pressurized (PRP) muscle was also investigated. For fresh beef samples, PRP...
The dynamical role of mesoscale eddies in the ocean general
circulation is investigated using eddy-resolving quasigeostrophic
(QG) and primitive equation (FE) models which are parametrically
identical. The results of both QG and FE numerical
experiments in mid-latitude, rectangular ocean basins are
systematically intercompared and extensively analyzed in terms
The relationships among total water potential (psi), osmotic potential ([pi]), pressure potential (P), and relative water content (R*) were determined during four consecutive soil drying cycles for shoots of Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [Mirb.] Franco) seedlings. In each cycle, seedlings were sampled for pressure-volume determinations as soil water was depleted gradually...
