Studies of δ¹⁸O held in freshwater bivalve shell carbonate are useful for reconstructing paleoclimates and environmental changes and inform interpretations about past human behavior and periods of culture change. Stable isotope analyses (δ¹⁸O) of Margaritifera falcata shells found at the Cooper's Ferry archaeological site located in the lower Salmon River...
Harlequin ducks (Histrionicus histrionicus) were observed during
the summers of 1979 and 1980 in Sawmill Bay, northeast Prince William
Sound, Alaska. Harlequins were associated with a short, medium gradient,
non-glacial stream (Stellar Creek) also used by salmon. Although
harlequins nested along Stellar Creek, they apparently did not establish
Green manures, soil solarization, and long rotations with crops not
susceptible to Verticillium wilt are among the disease management tactics currently
under investigation as alternatives to chemical fumigation of soil. The effect of a
broccoli green manure on soil microsclerotial populations of three isolates of
Verticillium dahliae and on Verticillium...
The study presents the results of a descriptive analysis of the skeletal remains of 66
individuals recovered from the Fuller and Fanning Mound sites, located on the Yamhill River,
Willamette Valley, Oregon, excavated in 1941-42 by W. T. Edmundson and William S.
Laughlin. The literature and original field notes have...
The cell survival curve is the only means by which to both qualitatively and
quantitatively assess morphologic alterations directly resulting from in vitro irradiation of
the cell. A ⁶⁰Co cell survival curve experiment has successfully demonstrated the
response of the AtT-20 clone mammalian cell line to the effects of gamma...
Because riparian canopy controls most energy inputs to stream
ecosystems, it directly affects the structure of aquatic food webs and the
ecological processes that govern interactions among trophic levels. This
study addresses the interdependence among riparian canopy, benthic
community structure, and the carrying capacity of high desert streams for
Eleven sedimentary and volcanic rock units are mapped and described in the thesis area, and chronicle the dynamic geologic history of the Tillamook embayment from the Oligocene through the middle Mlocene. The
oldest unit is the Zemorrian to early Saucesian Smuggler Cove formation, a bathyal tuffaceous mudstone with some thin-...
Elevated groundwater nitrate (NO3
-) concentrations in the Southern Willamette
Valley (SWV) caused the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) to
declare a Groundwater Management Area (GWMA) in Spring, 2004. To better
understand direction of groundwater flow, groundwater age, and nitrate transport
pathways of the SWV we developed a steady-state...
The effects of five cytokinin antagonists on the growth
of cytokinin-autonomous lines of Phaseolus lunatus cv.
Kingston, Phaseolus vulgaris cv. Great Northern, and
Nicotiana tabacum cv. Wisconsin 38 callus tissues have been
compared. The antagonists tested included four N⁴-substituted 4-amino-2-methylthiopyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidines
bearing the following N⁴ side chains, 4-n-pentyl-
(ms²pnN⁴Prp), 4-n-hexyl- (ms²HxN⁴Prp),...
