Archaeological sites located on the western flanks
of the centra1 Oregon Cascades are often characterized
by the lack of temporally diagnostic artifacts and materials
suitable for radiocarbon dating. Consequently, the
temporal context of these sites remains largely unknown.
Various researchers also have suggested that these open-air
lithic sites have been...
Visitor behavior research has become an essential
component to many museum programs. Since its opening to the
public in 1965, Oregon State University's Mark O. Hatfield
Marine Science Center Aquarium in Newport, it has been
visited by millions of people. A clear understanding of who
this audience was and what...
We investigated mesopredator effects
on prey availability in the Ross Sea, Antarctica, assessing the reasons why Adélie penguin Pygoscelis
adeliae foraging trip duration (FTD) increases and
diet changes from krill to fish as numbers of foraging
penguins and competing cetaceans increase in
the penguins’ foraging area. To investigate penguins’

The goals of this dissertation are centered on understanding changes in Earth surface and climate systems through the use of geologic proxies as records of past changes in these systems. Specifically, this dissertation (1) establishes a new chronology for retreat of the Ross Sea sector of the West Antarctic Ice...
Glutenin protein molecules can form a large "macropolymer" which forms the elastic component of the gluten complex in wheat flour doughs. Little work has been done to investigate relationships between glutenin macropolymer (GMP) and noodle processing. GMP was isolated from flour of 4 wheat varieties; 3 hard- and 1 soft-grained...
Wheat (Triticum aestivum) is one of the world’s major staple food crops, with flour produced from starchy endosperm being used for breads, cakes, noodles and various other wheat-based foods. The unique bread making properties of wheat are primarily attributed to its gluten-forming storage proteins: gliadins and glutenins. This study investigated...
I evaluated hypotheses related to growth as a driver of depth use and diel vertical migration by bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) in a thermally stratified reservoir. I applied a bioenergetic model to evaluate growth of bull trout in relation to potential patterns of diel depth use by bull trout in...
