Buckwheat is not likely to increase
soil organic matter content much
because dry matter production is
relatively low and tissues are succulent
and decompose very rapidly
when incorporated. However,
buckwheat can improve short-term
soil tilth and has been used to
prepare fields for transplants.
Cover crop selection and management depend on many factors, among them the cover crop’s ability to accumulate dry matter (i.e., residues) and nitrogen (N). Dry matter provides energy for soil organisms, contributes to soil organic matter, improves tilth, and acts as a sink for nutrients.

Core-top benthic foraminifera (Cibicidoides wuellerstorfi) from a depth transect of Soutar box cores from the Ontong-Java Plateau (1.6 – 4.4 km) were analyzed for cadmium, barium, and strontium (Cd/Ca, Ba/Ca, and Sr/Ca) and for their stable isotopic composition (δ¹³C and δ¹⁸O). We also measure bottom water δ¹³C, Cd, and Ba...
The purpose of this thesis is to derive and compare asymptotic
performances of certain tests of independence, interchangeability
and equality of the distributions of_ratios Y/X for positive variates
and Y with joint c.d.f. H(x,y) of particular forms. Three bivariate
families, Morgenstern, Plackett, and Moran, are considered which permit
