Experiments were performed to determine the rate of recolonization of sediment-associated microalga and effects of infauna on microalgal biomass and production. Estuarine sediment was defaunated and transplanted to the field and the laboratory. Recolonization of sediment by flora and fauna, relative to control sediment, was measured by chlorophyll a, gross...
Ashlock (1975) identified career education descriptive
factors as related to eight content areas of the Theory and
Practicum II program at Oregon State University. Based on
this research and the research literature, a Career Education
Competency-Based Instructional Model was devised. By
modifying the curriculum, this career education conceptual
The purpose of this research was to determine the common
professional training needs, proficiency and managerial requirements
of Oregon community college physical education instructors. The
respondents in this study were instructors who teach physical education
activity courses PE 180 - 185 - 190 in Oregon community colleges.

The quantification and description of sea surface temperature (SST) is critically important because it can influence the distribution, migration, and invasion of marine species; furthermore, SSTs are expected to be affected by climate change. To better understand present temperature regimes, we assembled a 29-year nearshore time series of mean monthly...
Global increases in ultraviolet-B radiation (UVBR) have the potential to alter marine primary production and to affect carbon cycles and marine trophic dynamics. Estimates of UVBR induced photoinhibition have varied greatly, indicating that a common dose-response by marine phytoplankton may not occur from place to place. An action spectrum describing...
Statistically, travel by air is one of the safest forms of transportation. Yet we
continue to experience aviation tragedies. Do we fully understand flight safety or is
there another way of looking at the problem? In this work a new way of approaching
the question of flight safety is developed,...
Population development of the symphylan, Scutigerella immaculata
(Newport), was studied in laboratory cultures. Also symphylan
injury to greenhouse plants was investigated. Plastic polyethylene
containers partly filled with damp ground hemlock bark were used to
culture symphylan in the laboratory. Fresh lettuce food was supplied
to the cultures weekly.
