Hop, Humulus lupulus L. is a dioecious perennial species. The female hop plant produces flowers that mature into ‘cones’ which are used as a raw material in the beer brewing process to impart bitterness, flavor, and aroma. The craft beer industry in the current global beer market continues to experience...
In this work the electron energy distribution functions and the
anisotropic drift term of the velocity distribution functions in non-self-sustaining
(Townsend) discharges in argon were determined by
direct measurement for a range of E/N (electric field strength by
gas atom concentration) from 70 to 407 Townsends (Td). (One Td
Juvenile T. townsendii were tested at 55-62 days of
age to determine whether 1) they could distinguish kin from
non-kin and 2) whether this ability was based on
familiarity or on genetic relatedness. Seventy-three pups
were observed in 68 pairwise tests. The frequencies and
durations of 8 behaviors as well...
The United States has had a long history of promoting agricultural exports, and the return to conditions of extreme surplus in many agricultural markets in recent years has revived interest in this topic. Some products received imperial bounties during our colonial era, but the systematic collection of trade statistics for...
The extended-Lifshitz-Kosevitch formalism (ELK) unifies the treatment of
the de Haas-van Alphen (dHvA) effect, allowing it to transcend its traditional roles
of mapping Fermi surfaces and measuring effective masses. Here we exploit the
capabilities of dHvA as a probe of many-body effects to examine heavy-fermion su-
perconductivity. ELK successfully describes...
Models of ecosystem carbon (C) balance generally assume a strong relationship between net primary productivity (NPP), litter inputs, and soil C accumulation, but there is little direct evidence for such a coupled relationship. Using a unique 50-year detrital manipulation experiment in a in a mixed deciduous forest and restored prairie...
Title: African-American Women Faculty Teaching at Institutions of Higher Learning in the Pacific Northwest: Challenges, Dilemas, and Sustainability
Institutions of higher learning in the Pacific Northwest have successfully recruited African-American faculty, yet these institutions have difficulty retaining African-American faculty for at least five years. African-American women faculty experience problems obtaining...
The purpose of this study was to compare the level of behavioral
understanding of preschool children of mothers who had observed in
the nursery school with the level of behavioral understanding of
mothers who had not observed. "Behavioral understanding" was defined
as a mother's degree of awareness of the factors...
