Acremonium coenophialum is an endophytic fungus which infects
the reproductive and vegetative tissue of tall fescue. Interest in
this fungus was sparked by research which linked its presence in
tall fescue with reduced weight gains and alkaloid-like poisoning
in cattle. Incomplete information was available on the endophyte's
life or disease...
The present studies were conducted to better understand the
etiology, epidemiology and potential control of the Phytophthora
stem root rot as it occurs in apple stool beds.
Symptoms of Phytophthora root and stem rot occurred as early
as May and continued to develop throughout the growing season.

The influence of weather on the long range radio navigation system Loran-C was investigated. The variables analyzed over a period of 255 days were: time differences (TDs), TD signal-to-noise ratios, TD standard deviations (measured at a fixed receiver location in Corvallis, Oregon), time interval numbers (TINOs) (measured at the transmitter...
was shown to be the precursor to the phenolic
stains that often develop in Douglas-fir [Pseudotsuga
menziesii (Mirb.) Franco] sapwood. Douglas-fir sapwood was
extracted with methanol and the methanol solubles were
fractionated by solvent partition, thin-layer chromatography,
silica-gel column chromatography, and Sephadex gelpermeation
chromatography. Tyrosinase, a commercially
