The use of Native American fire regimes evolved in the Klamath-Siskiyou bioregion over millennia. A mixture of Native American and Euro-American socio-cultural management has developed from adaptations to climate, topography, ecological processes, and land use practices. This research incorporates Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) to partially examine the role of tribal...
A study was made to evaluate the effect of different rates of N
fertilization on Nugaines wheat. The variable N treatments provided
different N regimes as a basis for evaluating potential diagnostic
tests for assessing the N status of the wheat plant. The crop was
grown in Lane county during...
Acidity distribution within any given soil profile is dependent on
mineralogical make-up of the parent material as well as environmental conditions prevalent during the weathering history of the soil.
An experiment was designed to study the distribution pattern of exchange acidity, exchangeable aluminum, exchangeable manganese and
pH of six acid...
In an effort to identify seasonal distribution patterns and habitat requirements of coastal
cutthroat trout Oncorhynchus clarki clarki, movement of tagged and marked individuals
(35 radio-tagged, 753 PIT-tagged, and 5,322 fin-clipped) was monitored over a 14-month
period in an isolated watershed in southwestern Oregon. Emigration out of the basin was...
A method for Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of hybrid
poplar (Populus alba x P. grandidentata) suspension cultures and
regeneration of transformed plants is described. The best protocol
was one in which suspension cultures were inoculated with
Agrobacterium tumefaciens to a density of 10⁷ cfu's/ml, cocultivated
for 48 hours, plated to cellulose acetate...
Immunological memory has been shown to occur
unequivocally in mammals. However, controversy exists regarding
the capability of fish to elicite a memory response. This study
demonstrates that memory does occur
rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus rnykiss.
Trout injected with a T-dependent antigen,
trinitrophenylated keyhole-limpet hemocyanin, (TNP-KLH) (100
μg/fish) were able to produce...

This dissertation focuses on the life of Dixy Lee Ray as it examines important
developments in marine biology and biological oceanography during the mid twentieth
century. In addition, Ray's key involvement in the public understanding of science
movement of the 1950s and 1960s provides a larger social and cultural context...
During the depression era, millions of Americans listened to the weekly radio
addresses given by Father Charles Edward Coughlin. He devoted his career to
speaking out against the evils of America and felt it his duty to warn Americans
