The critical buckling load for round tapered columns with variable
end fixity is presented. The theory used is presented together
with the general solution for the resulting differential equation. This
general solution is solved by use of a computer. The computer program
written specifically for this thesis, the flow chart,...

A taxonomic study of the genus Gautieria Vitt. is presented.
Existing type collections were re-examined, fully described and
figures. Twenty-six species are recognized. Two provisional subgenera
are proposed: Gautieria and Clelandia. Within the subgenus
Gautieria, two provisional sections are proposed: Gautieria and
Trappea. G. morchellaeformis var. globospora, and

Three provisional species are described as new: Leucogaster
couchii, L. gelatinosus, and L. microsporus. Leucophlebs candida
is transferred to Leucogastef, completing the transfer of all
Leucophlebs species to Leucogaster. L. columellatus is transferred
to Sclerogaster. L. longisterigmatus is synonymized with
L. rubescens, L. foveolatus with L. odoratus, and L. fulvimaculatus...
