The western Nearctic species of the genus Phytocoris Fallen were
taxonomically revised. Over 15,000 specimens were examined.
Information concerning host plant associations and distributions was
compiled and summarized for use by future researchers. External
morphological features and characters of the male genitalia were used
to distinguish species. The genital tubercles...
Seven species of Gerridae are known to occur in Oregon and
Washington. These are Gerris (Aquarius) remigis Say, Gerris (Gerris)
buenoi Kirkaldy, Gerris (Gerris) gillettei Lethierry and Severin, Gerris
(Gerris) incognitus Drake and Hottes, Gerris (Gerris) incurvatus Drake
and Hottes, Limnoporus notabilis (Drake and Hottes), and Metrobates
trux infuscatus Usinger....
This paper explores the language theories of Gary Snyder, an important modern
environmental author whose early work was associated with the Beat movement of the
early 1950's. I am particularly interested in Snyder's thoughts on how language relates
to nature. I focus primarily on Snyder's prose in attempts to understand...

Recent conflicts in America concerning the environment (the harvesting of old growth
timber in the Pacific Northwest, or the proposed opening of public lands in southern Utah to mining
interests, for instance) have precipitated a personal examination of "historical others" (Jensen 64),
individuals that possess very different sensibilities from a...
Meadowfoam has been identified as a potential oilseed crop for
production on poorly drained soils in areas with cool, moist winters.
The effects of N fertilizer on meadowfoam (Limnanthes alba Benth.)
have been studied in Oregon and Maryland, but the results have not
been consistent with respect to the effects...
Replication associated protein and enzyme activity levels increase as cells enter
S-phase of the cell cycle and diminish as cells leave S-phase. Accordingly, replication
associated functions decrease as myoblasts withdraw from the cell cycle to terminally
differentiate. In an effort to understand signals effecting growth associated expression
of genes, the...
Doxorubicin is a widely used cancer therapeutic, but its effectiveness is limited by cardiotoxic side effects. Evidence suggests cardiotoxicity is due not to doxorubicin, but rather its metabolite, doxorubicinol. Identification of the enzymes responsible for doxorubicinol formation is important in developing strategies to prevent cardiotoxicity. In this study, the contributions...
The shallow water benthic habitat of the SW Beaufort Sea is frequently
gouged by the keels of ice pressure ridges. This natural physical
disturbance was hypothesized to be an important factor affecting the
structure of the benthic community. Smith-McIntyre grab samples were
taken from three discrete gouge axes and from...
