Data from the southern Cascade Mountains of
Oregon has been collected for application in computer
analysis of snowfields. Vegetation type, canopy
cover, slope, aspect, insolation, and snowfield
ground truth delineation are given consideration.
In addition, a procedure for transferral of data
onto Landsat imagery was derived.

Depleted species of rockfish (Sebastes spp.) from the Northeast Pacific experience high discard mortality due to "barotrauma," induced from the rapid change in pressure during capture. Research suggests rockfish have the potential to survive barotrauma if immediately recompressed, but the potential for long-term recovery is unknown. In this project, we...
A trial was conducted to determine the effects of increasing
levels of water restriction on body weight, feed consumption, feed
conversion and mortality of broiler chicks to eight weeks of age.
In addition, the effects of water restriction on water:feed ratios,
water consumption per pound of body weight and on...
To observe the effects of oviposition as related to time of insemination
on fertility, four trials were conducted in which individually
caged White Leghorn hens were artificially inseminated with 0.05 cc
of undiluted mixed semen obtained from 4 to 5 cockerels. These inseminations
were made at 9:45 a.m. , 10:00...
In this study, pheromone and skin lipid samples collected from red-sided garter snakes (Thamnophis sirtalis parietalis) were exposed directly to either full-spectrum light or full-spectrum plus UVB light. In addition, female and male snakes were exposed to daily doses of either full-spectrum or full-spectrum and UVB light, after which the...
The immune system has been identified as a very sensitive target for the toxic effects of 2,3,7,S-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD). Exposure to TCDD has been shown to disrupt the generation of both cell-mediated and humoral T cell-dependent immunity in laboratory animals; however, the mechanism remains unknown. In this dissertation, the hypothesis is...
Modern science was produced by a Christian society,
and although science has had an effect on Christianity, it
could not itself remain unaffected. In the second half of
the nineteenth century, the subject of evolution was as
much a religious as a scientific issue. The battle line
was drawn and...
Commercial hog diets in the United States commonly contain lipid sources high in polyunsaturated fatty acids, most notably linoleic acid (18:2). This may result in greater deposits of linoleic acid in pork adipose tissue, contributing to an increased potential for lipid oxidation, high n-6/n-3 fatty acid ratio and increased fat...
A Sebastes-specific complementary DNA (cDNA) microarray was developed to identify potential biomarkers involved in the capture stress and recovery of Sebastes species if they are assisted in returning to their original depth of capture following barotrauma. Black rockfish Sebastes melanops were exposed to simulated decompression from 450 kPa (c. 35...
Hop downy mildew is a devastating disease affecting hop requiring expensive
fungicide applications throughout the growing season. Plant resistance is highly
desirable and theorized as being decidedly quantitative with dominance and epistasis
involved in resistance. An association mapping approach using a mixed-model was
used to identify AFLP markers associated with...
