Agonistic behavior among three species of Microtus live-trapped
near Corvallis, Oregon was recorded in order to interpret habitat
segregation by the species in areas of syrnpatry. The method used to
measure agonistic interaction was similar to that of Colvin (1970).
Agonistic behavior was recorded under red light in a neutral...
Few studies have examined the acute effects of
resistive-type exercise on lipid-lipoprotein profiles. This
study examined the acute effects of a single session of
circuit weight training (CWT) on plasma lipid-lipoprotein
profiles: triglycerides (TG), total cholesterol (TC), high
density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), low density
lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and the ratio...
To initiate the defense response to an invading pathogen, plants utilize an array of immune receptors to recognize virulence effectors. Virulence effectors are released by pathogens to suppress immune responses in target hosts. These effectors are recognized by a family of resistance proteins known as nucleotide-binding leucine-rich repeat (NB-LRR) proteins....

This dissertation consists of a general introduction, three manuscripts, and general conclusions. The research integrates research on (1) the effects of barley genetics and production environment on the contribution of barley to beer flavor, (2) the effects of degree of malt modification on barley contributions to beer flavor and (3)...
Wild barley (Hordeum vulgare subsp. spontaneum) could be a source of useful
genes for improving cultivated barley. The useful genes present in Hordeum
vulgare subsp. spontaneum may be new alleles at described loci, or these may be
entirely new genes in the sense that there is limited allelic variation at...
Seasonally, in 1998 and 1999, I examined spatial and temporal variation in
fish assemblages of agricultural, forested, and acid mine drainage tributaries within
the Wayne National Forest (WNF) in southern Ohio. Land use and natural
disturbance explained patterns in stream fish assemblages. Creek chub and green
sunfish were present in...
