The Oregon chub. Oregonichthys crameri. one of
Oregon's endemic freshwater fishes. is restricted to the
Willamette and Umpqua rivers and their tributaries.
Specimens from the two rivers have traditionally been
considered the same species. The goal of this study was to
re-examine that assumption and determine if the Willamette
The type of plasminogen activator (PA) secreted by bovine embryos was identified. Day 12 to 14 blastocysts were collected at slaughter from estrous-synchronized, superovulated and naturally mated crossbred beef cows. Embryos were either left as intact embryos (E) or microdissected into component embryonic discs (ED) and trophoblastic vesicles (TV). Intact...
This study investigated the influence of perceptual training on
volleyball serve-reception performance. The subjects were ten female high-school
volleyball players. Subjects were randomly assigned in equal
numbers to a control or an experimental group.
Both groups were tested on two occasions, prior to and following a
three-week perceptual training intervention....
This paper deals with finite abstract Witt rings in the case where
-1 = 1 in the square class group.
The results also apply to Witt rings
of quadratic forms over fields where √-1
is in the field.
of relative rigidity is studied in finite abstract Witt rings...
Euphausiids constituted the major food of five co-occuring species of rockfishes (Sebastes spp.). Copepods, decapods, cephalopods, amphipods, fishes and other pelagic prey were also consumed but were
less important to the overall diet. Two species, S. flavidus and S. diploproa, were relatively euryphagous, utilizing a high number of prey taxa....
Past disasters such as mercury poisoning in Minimata, and new problems such as
tributyltin impacts on shellfish have maintained public concern about problems caused
by chronic discharges of hazardous materials into marine waters (Clark, 1986; U.S.
Congress, 1987). However, hazardous chemical spills in coastal waters typically escape
public attention. Unlike...
Most recent research on stream amphibians in the Pacific Northwest has focused on associations with reach-level or stand-level environmental features. Little is known about
landscape-level distributions of these species or landscape-level aspects of their life-histories. I used a watershed-wide sample and logistic regression to develop models and maps of probability...
The purpose of this study was to discern the nature of legislators' perceptions about community colleges' abilities to generate revenues through alternative funding sources and the resultant effects on state allocations to these colleges. Selected community college-related staff members and legislative staff members in Idaho and Oregon were asked to...
This dissertation centers on development of two web-based, in class learning tools, the AIChE Concept Warehouse (CW) and the Web-based Interactive Science and Engineering Learning Tool (WISE), and describes the investigation of student learning through their use. The intent of these tools is to promote deeper conceptual understanding in students...
