Twelve high effective Rhizobium trifolii strains were evaluated at four locations in southwest Oregon for the ability to effectively nodulate Mount Barker subterranean clover. All twelve strains possessed antibiotic resistance markers to facilitate identification of strains when extracted from nodules. No significant differences in plant dry weight means could be...
Polypeptidyl derivatives of bovine pancreatic ribonuclease
(RNase) containing two or three tyrosine chains
with an average of two to three residues per chain have
been prepared. The effects of various perturbants such as
neutral salts, ethanol, urea and guanidine hydrochloride
on the thermal transition of the derivatives have been

Oregon's Special Farm Use Assessment program is investigated
in this paper for its effectiveness in preserving farmland from urban
sprawl. Basic research for this study was conducted in Jefferson
County, a rural central Oregon county. Data from a similar study conducted
in Washington County, an urbanizing northern Willamette Valley
The objective of this paper is to conduct a geographical inventory
of a sand and gravel site, Lower Kiger Island, so as to identify and
evaluate other potential land uses subsequent to the extraction of its aggregate
resources. This information is intended to aid citizens, land use
planners, and sand...
