HOE 23408 [ 4-(2' , 4'-dichlorophenoxy)-phenoxy-u-propionic
methylester.1 is a promising new compound for control of wild oats
and other grass weeds in small grains. Several factors influencing
its use for this purpose were investigated.
Greenhouse bioassay studies were conducted in 1975 to determine
relative persistence of HOE 23408 in four...
Availability of evergreen forage plants during the
two dry seasons in arid central Somalia is very important.
Cordeauxia edulis is a multistemmed evergreen legume shrub
which grows in Central Somalia in plant communities
dominated by deciduous shrubs. There are two growth forms
of this plant. A form with small leaflets...
The response to glyphosate [N-(phosphonomethyl) glycine] of two
dodder species Cuscuta campestris Yuncker (field dodder) and Cuscuta
indecora Chiosy (largeseed dodder) parasitizing alfalfa (Medicago
sativa L.) was compared. In the absence of glyphosate, alfalfa was
killed or severely injured by parasitism from uncontrolled dodder.
Results of field experiments in which...
Extensive morphological and growth habit variations have been
reported for bitterbrush (Purshia tridentata), a widespread western
shrub frequently used in range revegetation projects. Hybridization
of this species occurs with cliffrose (Cowania stansburiana) at the
point of their overlapping range in Utah and is believed to be
responsible for expression of...
(HIOMT) in chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus
tshawytscha). Various body tissues, as well as several
morphological brain divisions were tested for the presence
of HIOMT. Activity was found in the retina, the dorsal
portion of the diencephalon, and in the pineal gland of
chinook. However, the activity was significantly higher
The black grass bug genus Irbisia Reuter was revised. Over 18,000
specimens were examined and information concerning the biology, host
plant and distributional relationships of the species was compiled.
In addition to external characters, the male claspers and vesica, and
the female dorsal libiate plate of the bursa copulatrix and...
Paraquat (1,11-dimethy1-4,4'-bipyridinium ion) and glyphosate [N (phosphonomethyl)glycine] are herbicides utilized for chemical seedbed preparation in the establishment of grass and legume seed crops. When these herbicides are applied after seeding the crop, seeds which are not protected by a layer of soil could be exposed to the herbicide. Effects of...
The Nearctic species of the genus Sympherobius
Banks are revised. Seventeen species are recorded from
the region. Two new species, S. constrictus and S.
quadricuspis are described from California and Arizona
respectively. Four new specific synonyms are proposed
(junior synonym(s) first): S. brunneus Nakahara and S.
stangei Nakahara = S....
Some perennial grass seed crops such as red fescue (Festuca rubra
L.) do not produce a profitable seed crop during the first growing
season. The present establishment method in Oregon for red fescue seed
crops generally entails spring planting which does not satisfy
vernalization requirements for seed production in the...
