Women entrepreneurs are an economic force within the American and Oregon economy. Women are starting businesses at two to five times the rate of men. There has been significant research detailing the demographics, barriers, and business management skills of women business owners. Yet, the research to date has been limited...
This analysis is the study of Oregon's wildlife resources from
the period prior to white settlement up to the present time, including
critical projections, based on present trends and expected conditions
for both human and wildlife populations in the state up to the year 2010.
Prior to white settlement Oregon...
Between 1970 and 1974, data were collected on the distribution and biology of the spotted owl (Strix occidentalis) in Oregon. One-hundred and sixteen pairs and seven single birds were located. Spotted owls occurred throughout the mountains of western Oregon and on the east slope of the Cascade Range at least...
This paper discussed the human electrocardiogram, the instrumentation
used to graphically record it, and the design and performance
of a specialized system for vector cardiography: the Vector Electrocardioscope
(VECS) System. The introduction reviews in considerable
detail the pertinent known physiology of the heart, especially the
electrophysiology responsible for the genesis...
The impact that pesticides may have had on the mortality rates and productivity rates of non-game birds during the last 25 years was evaluated by studying the population dynamics of 16 species. A mathematical model showing the relationships between population parameters that yielded stable populations was developed. The information needed...
This thesis is concerned with the analysis of heat transfer in a tube with forced flow under conditions of an arbitrary variation of wall heat flux both axially and circumferentially. This total study is separated into two distinct problems which are presented separately. The first is the case of a...
Arsenic concentrations exceeding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) current Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) of 50 micrograms per liter are widespread in ground water in the Willamette Basin. The Oregon Water Resources Department and the U.S. Geological Survey began a cooperative study in the Willamette Basin in 1996. One goal...
The utility of the fatty acid biomarker (FAB) approach in fisheries ecology is limited by our understanding of how
biotic and abiotic factors determine dietary markers in fish tissues. An 8-week laboratory experiment was
conducted on two species of juvenile gadids (Pacific cod, Gadus macrocephalus and walleye Pollock, Theragra
across temperatures, andwere evident in fish after only oneweek of feeding. Pa-
cific cod held at 9 °C
During the summer and fall of 1982, personnel from the Geophysics
Group in the School of Oceanography at Oregon State University conducted
an aeromagnetic survey in the northern Oregon Cascades to
assess geothermal potential and study the thermal evolution of the
Cascade volcanic arc.
Total field and low-pass filtered magnetic...
This study was directed to improve our understanding of the ecology of Swiss needle
cast (SNC) of Douglas-fir, a disease that produces extensive damage to forests and
plantation in the coastal region of Oregon and Washington. A disease prediction model
for the coastal area of Oregon was built by establishing...
The Mount Fubilan Intrusion is part of a geologically young hypabyssal stock in the Star Mountains of Papua New Guinea. This stock was mapped as the Ok Tedi Intrusive Complex and divided into four separate bodies: the Mount Fubilan, Sydney Intrusion, Kalgoorlie, and Ningi Intrusions. Hydrothermal fluids caused alteration of...

The purpose of this study was to explore the effectiveness of
Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in selected
schools of the Oregon Small Schools Project. Specifically, the
objectives were to analyze:
1. To what extent were the objectives of the OSSP
2. To what degree...
Food habits and levels of organochlorine compounds, lead, and mercury in resident and wintering bald eagles were studied in southcentral Oregon and California, 1979-83. Food habits were assessed by examination of castings from winter communal roosts, identification of 2938 prey items found at nest sites and foraging areas, and observations...
Accurate taxonomy is essential to preservation and management of native
grasses. Four problems in fescue taxonomy were investigated: the identity of the
native fescue that dominates western Oregon and Washington prairies, the relationship
of native Festuca roemeri to closely related grasses, the status of F. howellii and F.
Reinhabitation is an approach to building local cultures and economies within industrial society. The food system is a vital starting point. What are the principles of reinhabitory food systems? What are the possibilities for a locally adapted food system in the Marys River region of western Oregon? I describe past...

Infiltration, soil erosion, nitrogen loss and soil profile
characteristics were measured on 36 sites representing land occupied
by Artemisia tridentata ssp. tridentate, wyomingensis, and vaseyana.
Infiltration, soil erosion, and nitrogen loss were strongly correlated
but highly variable. Soil loss, but not infiltration or nitrogen
loss was significantly different between subspecies....
Seventy-two species of Blennocampinae in 21 genera and six tribes
are known from the Nearctic region. The adults and known larvae of
all species and genera are keyed, described and illistrated. A
definition of the subfamily, a review of previous work, a table of
host-plant associations, and a discussion of...
While the public trust doctrine at common law placed effective limitations on the Crown, these limitations have been somewhat obscured by state court decisions in the United States. Though some courts have suggested that the public trust places limitations or the power of the legislature to convey lands beneath navigable...
AIM: Species that breed sympatrically often occupy different foraging niches to
mitigate competition for prey. When resource availability declines at the end of
the breeding season, some animals migrate to regions with more favourable
environmental conditions. When these life-history traits combine, foraging
habitat preferences may continue to influence migration patterns...
