This investigation was designed to determine whether a remediation
program concurrent to enrollment in the Calculus could be used
to reveal and remedy student deficiencies involving pre-calculus topics,
promoting a greater degree of success in the Calculus. The instructional
model for the program that was investigated consisted of pretesting
The vegetative communities in the subalpine meadows of Hunts

We examine the hypothesis that the presence of these large carnivores has affected fisheries resources, either through...
The rate of interaction of carbon dioxide with eight detached organic films commonly used as coatings for metal surfaces was examined.
The films studied were lacquers of several different formulations
including oleoresinous, phenolic, vinyl, alkyd, epoxy, and
hydrocarbon types. The sorption was measured on a McBain type
gravimetric adsorption balance...

Total length and biomass of fungal mycelium in the soil of a young Douglas-fir stand in the central Oregon Coast Range were estimated over 27 months with the agar-film technique. In a second study, phenology and taxonomy of hypogeous (belowground) sporocarps were studied over 32 months in a nearby, young...
