Agricultural tile drainage is one of the major causes of increasing nitrate (NO3-) concentrations in surface water bodies thanks to the usage of nitrogen fertilizers and manure. Denitrifying bioreactors are constructed at the edge of agricultural lands in order to remove NO3- from drainage water through labile carbon substrates intended...
The purpose of the work is to enable students of botany to identify
accurately Oregon ferns, both as living plants and as dried specimens.
Therefore, it provides vegetative keys to the families, genera
and species of the ferns (Class FILICINAE) found in Oregon. Correct
names have been determined using the...
