Twenty-eight Columbia ewes were made available for study
during their breeding and anestrous seasons. After the regularity
of the estrous cycles had been established, eight of the ewes were
sacrificed in pairs at four different stages of the estrous cycle.
Eight additional ewes were sacrificed during anestrus. Pituitary
Five experiments were conducted to study the activity of the
pituitary gland in sheep as influenced by estrogen administered alone
or in combination with progesterone. Particular emphasis was given
to the study of gonadotropic activity.
Mature wethers (experiments I, III, IV and V) or ewes (experiment
II) were utilized as...

PROCEDURES A list of skills, knowledges and related factors needed for successful employment was derived from existing task analyses...
Hip fractures have high mortality and morbidity rates after incidence, with osteoporosis being a major risk factor due to the loss of bone mineral density (BMD). Lower-body resistance exercises, such as squats, can provide sufficient loading on the hip to induce osteogenic effects. However, this loading may depend on how...
An investigation of the fishes of the Willamette River and three of its larger tributaries was made during July, August, September, and November of 1951, to ascertain the possibility of using them as bio-indices of pollution. Thirteen stations were established on the Willamette River and tributaries. These stations were selected...
The response of maturity, vigor, plant spread, plant height,
three forage harvest yields, and total forage yield to heterosis and
inbreeding was studied in tall fescue. Parent clones selected for
diverse anthesis date, origin, and morphology were separated into two
groups based on anthesis date, those having early maturity and...
Thais emarginata is a gastropod which inhabits the midlittoral
zone of the intertidal region. Oxygen consumption of high-level and
low-level organisms was determined at various seasons of the year
over an experimental temperature range of 5 to 20° C.
No significant difference in respiratory rate between separate
populations of high-level...
