The malty flavor defect produced by Streptococcus lactis var.
maltigenes has been the cause of considerable economic distress to
various segments of the dairy industry. This study was conducted
in order to develop a more thorough understanding of the chemical
nature of this defect, and to formulate a synthetic malty...
This thesis was to develop a bone artifact typology for the Oregon coast.
This typology was used to test the hypothesis that different geographical regions of
the Oregon coast would have different artifact assemblages associated with them.
These regions, identified by geologist from landform changes, have been defined
The development of synthetic culture flavors for use in dairy
products such as sour cream, cottage cheese, butter, and buttermilk
has created the need for a rapid quantitative analysis for the
synthetic flavor concentrates. An internal standard gas chromatographic
method has been developed which is capable of +10% accuracy
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...
A publication containing advice on a wide range of gardening topics, including composting, container gardens, fall/winter gardens, fertilizing, insect pests, plant diseases, planting guidelines, raised beds, site selection, slugs, soil improvement, tilling, warm-season crops, watering, and weeds. Includes regional tips for various parts of Oregon.
A phytoplankton bloom dominated by the pennate diatom Nitzschia
curta (Van Heurck) Hasle was observed during January-February 1983 at
a receding ice-edge in the Western Ross Sea, Antarctica. The core of
the bloom was found between 100-150 Km from the ice-edge. Nitzschia
curta cell densities up to 22 x 10⁶...
This thesis documents a period of ecological and cultural change on a Willamette
Valley, Oregon landscape. In particular, this study examines the Peavy Arboretum area
and the cultural changes that accompanied the transformation of the landscape from an
oak savannah in the mid-nineteenth century to a dense Douglas-fir forest in...
