Observed declines in native pollinator species worldwide has generated concern and focused research into the disturbances, past and present, which may have contributed to these losses. In grasslands, for example, habitat degradation and fragmentation from historical and current crop production and livestock grazing has left only a few remnants of...
Ventenata dubia L. (ventenata) is an introduced, winter annual grass that has recently been raising concerns across the Pacific Northwest Bunchgrass Prairie and the Palouse Prairie. It is well established now in pasturelands, croplands, and a variety of ecosystems including grasslands, sagebrush steppe, ponderosa pine forests and woodlands. Ventenata is...
The canyon grasslands of the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area (HCNRA) are a unique ecosystem within the Pacific Northwest Bunchgrass Region (PNWBR) with a long history of natural and anthropogenic disturbances including fire, invasive species introduction, historical livestock grazing, and cultivation. Even with this history, these canyon grasslands contain some...
This analysis is the study of Oregon's wildlife resources from
the period prior to white settlement up to the present time, including
critical projections, based on present trends and expected conditions
for both human and wildlife populations in the state up to the year 2010.
Prior to white settlement Oregon...
This thesis concerns the alteration of the course of selective
protein synthesis and morphogenesis in plants treated with growth
regulating chemicals. Treatment of 48-hour-old "Alaska" pea seedlings
(Pisum sativum L.) with 2, 4-D, IAA, NAA or picloram caused
inhibition of epicotyl and primary root elongation and proliferation of
This analysis concerns the life and scientific work of Henry
Augustus Rowland (1848-1901), organizer and the first chairman of
the physics department at The Johns Hopkins University in 1876.
Special materials used in this research included three pieces of
Rowland's experimental apparatus which are extant in the Smithsonian
