There is little, if any, direct fossil evidence of the cardiovascular, respiratory, reproductive or digestive biology of dinosaurs. However, a variety of data can be used to draw reasonable inferences about the physiology of the carnivorous theropod dinosaurs (Archosauria: Theropoda). Extant archosaurs, birds and crocodilians, possess regionally differentiated, vascularized and...
Volcanic activity during the Tertiary has long been held
responsible for the deaths and subsequent fossilization of the
vertebrate populations of the John Day region in Oregon. Oreodonts
as plains or savannah dwelling ruminant herbivores, were likely to
have been subject to potential exposure throughout their lifetime
to volcanic debris...
While the primary emphasis of this study was on the professional
aspects of a business teacher's preparation, by necessity it was
concerned with other aspects of the preparation of business teachers,
especially as these relate to the so-called "professional sequence."
Thus the purpose of the study was to seek...
The study presents the results of a descriptive analysis of the skeletal remains of 66
individuals recovered from the Fuller and Fanning Mound sites, located on the Yamhill River,
Willamette Valley, Oregon, excavated in 1941-42 by W. T. Edmundson and William S.
Laughlin. The literature and original field notes have...
The effects of five cytokinin antagonists on the growth
of cytokinin-autonomous lines of Phaseolus lunatus cv.
Kingston, Phaseolus vulgaris cv. Great Northern, and
Nicotiana tabacum cv. Wisconsin 38 callus tissues have been
compared. The antagonists tested included four N⁴-substituted 4-amino-2-methylthiopyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidines
bearing the following N⁴ side chains, 4-n-pentyl-
(ms²pnN⁴Prp), 4-n-hexyl- (ms²HxN⁴Prp),...
Aquatic insects are essential components of healthy stream ecosystems, contributing to nutrient cycling, trophic dynamics and other ecological functions. Aquatic insect species, particularly those in the orders Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera (EPT taxa) are however, extremely sensitive to insecticide contamination. Given that urban and agricultural use of synthetic pyrethroid insecticides...
The toxicity of menthol, menthone, pulegone, limonene, and a-pinene, five monoterpenes found in peppermint (Mentha piperita L.), to the variegated cutworm (Peridroma saucia Hiibner) was characterized by in vivo and in vitro methods. Pulegone and menthone caused slower growth over six days when incorporated into an artificial diet and fed...
