This study was undertaken to compile a comprehensive
review of the literature and to gain a better understanding
of the host-parasite relationship in corynebacterial kidney
disease of salmonid fishes. An indirect fluorescent antibody
technique was developed which allowed differentiation
of intra- and extracellular bacteria. This technique was
used in combination...
This study investigated the influence of perceptual training on
volleyball serve-reception performance. The subjects were ten female high-school
volleyball players. Subjects were randomly assigned in equal
numbers to a control or an experimental group.
Both groups were tested on two occasions, prior to and following a
three-week perceptual training intervention....
Two ash-flow tuff units of the late Miocene-early Pliocene Deschute Formation in central Oregon were studied in detail because of the widespread distribution, diverse compositions, and stratigraphic importance.
The Lower Bridge tuff is a double-flow simple
cooling unit that is poorly welded. The upper flow grades from rhyolite in the...

For coaches to qualitatively analyze the performance of sport skills as executed by their

comparisons (Hoffman, 1983; Pinheiro & Simon, 1992). Leas and Chi (1993) have

Although research evidence clearly indicates support surface properties are a major factor contributing to fall risk among the elderly, investigations examining the influence of variations in surface conditions on the postural control of older adults during task performance have been limited. Thus, the primary purpose of the present studies was...
This study investigated the relative effectiveness of
three instructional strategies on the learning of an overarm
throw among preadolescent females. Subjects were randomly
assigned to one of the following instructional strategies:
a correct model supplemented with verbal cues, a learning
model supplemented with verbal cues, and verbal cues only.
In competitive swimming a spread in time of only 0.10,
and 0.16 seconds constituted the difference between
finishing second and seventh, and first and eighth,
respectively, in the women's 50 yard freestyle at the 1993
NCAA Division III National Swimming & Diving Championships.
Based on data collected over a period...
