Three genetically different dwarf cultivars of spring wheat were
evaluated as potential sources of short stature to use in a wheat improvement
program. The study involved a five parent diallel cross
which included a semidwarf, a standard height and three dwarf cultivars.
The genetic sources of dwarfism included a Norma...
An attenuated strain of Flavobacterium psychrophilum (CSF259-93B.17) has shown potential as a vaccine
for prevention of bacterial coldwater disease (BCWD) in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum).
Because BCWD outbreaks can result in high mortality in other salmonid species, specifically coho salmon,
Oncorhynchus kisutch (Walbaum), the live-attenuated strain was tested as...
This thesis examines the transient and steady-state temperature performance
of a rotary regenerative heat exchanger. In contrast to previous
studies on this problem, fluid flow in the circumferential direction was
considered. Appropriate modeling was included to measure the effect of
carry-over on the differential equations describing mass and energy
This investigation was conducted to determine the
effect of estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) on vitamin B-6
status of postmenopausal women. Nineteen postmenopausal
women served as subjects. Nine (54.7 + 4.7 years) were
taking ERT (experimental group); ten (56.8 + 2.3 years)
were not (control group). For three consecutive days,
We investigated the effect of pyridoxine
supplementation on the utilization of protein in a low-protein,
plant-based diet in four subjects (2 men and
2 women), aged 21 to 38 years. Following two days of a
negligible protein diet, this 34 day study was divided into
three dietary periods: the subjects...
The Ventura basin is an elongate sedimentary trough extending from the San Gabriel fault west into the Santa
Barbara Channel. West of Ventura it contains over 4 km of severely deformed Pliocene and Pleistocene clastic
strata. The north-dipping Red Mountain reverse fault system, which forms the northern boundary of the...
The purpose of this work was to develop a dynamic partial order model of II electrolyte solutions which avoids inconsistencies present in the Debye-1-Iuckel and 1n related theories. It is shown that our results are consistent with activity coefficient data in aqueous electrolyte solutions. The main features of our work...
Four years of daily weather observations from Central Tunisia were available for testing the application of the Penman Equation to estimate reference evapotranspiration in the arid climate of Central Tunisia. The data included minimum and maximum temperature, minimum and maximum relative humidity, 24-hour wind run, and lysimeter measurements of reference...
