The high cost of content-addressed memories (CAM) can be reduced
significantly by using a circulating memory system. With the
circulating system, comparison logic is shared by many memory locations
to allow a reduction in cost.
Three data organizations are described and evaluated and one
is chosen as the best for...
The purpose of this study was to identify the factors that influence
the use and understanding of unit pricing. Furthermore, a
comparison between a city with a mandated unit pricing program
(Seattle, Washington) and a city with a voluntary unit pricing program
(Portland, Oregon) was made. The intent was to...
Humboldt Redwoods State Park in southern Humboldt County, California is a coastal redwood forest, a highly unique and valued ecosystem. It has many social, cultural, ecological, and economic values, including recreational benefits, heritage and aesthetic values, high biodiversity, nutrient cycling, and climate regulation. However, Humboldt County is at risk of...
The impacts of climate change are being observed worldwide. However, some regions and context specific situations make particular areas more vulnerable to the impacts than others. Alaska’s Kenai River Watershed (KRW) is on the front lines of climate change and may be especially vulnerable to the impacts due to distinct...
Aspects of the life history and ecology of the intertidal turf-forming
alga Rhodomela larix (Turner) C. Agardh were examined over a two
year period at several sites on the Oregon coast. Rhodomela occurred
over a broad tidal range and exhibited different growth and morphology
characteristics with respect to tidal height....
Forest management is an important mechanism that provides social, ecological, and economic benefits to the community. On public lands, management is often initiated for multi-use objectives. However, both history and research have proven that the level of acceptance for harvesting on public lands varies both temporally and spatially. Public perceptions...
The middle Deschutes River between Bend, Oregon and Lake Billy Chinook typically experiences critically low flows during the irrigation season. Commercial agriculture in the North Unit Irrigation District and Central Oregon Irrigation District is one major user of Deschutes River water. The overall objective of this research was to estimate...
AN ABSTRACT OF THE THESIS OF
Brenda P. Turner for the degree of
An enzyme system from cell-free yeast homogenates mediating the
transfer of the methyl group from S-adenosylmethionine-methyl-C¹⁴
or methionine-methyl-C¹⁴ to C-28 of ergosterol has been studied.
The effects of divalent cations, suithydryl inhibitors and reducing
substances on the activity of the enzyme system have been investigated.
It was established that for...
