The purpose of this research was to determine if there were
initial differences in selected dimensions of self-actualization, as
measured by the Personal Orientation Inventory (POI), between the
freshmen who selected co-educational residence halls and those who
selected single-sex residence halls; and to determine if the type
of residence hall...
Irrigation is essential for profitable agriculture in the western
United States. It is the largest consumer of water and power in
Oregon. Conflicting uses of water and power and their scarcity demands
judicious planning for allocation of these resources. Creditable
baseline data are not only needed for irrigated crop acreages,...
Hydrogen cyanamide (CY) has been used to break rest
in temperate crops, but levels used to overcome rest are
sometimes toxic to plants. The rest breaking effect of CY
is thought to involve peroxide metabolism. Inhibition of
catalase by CY has been proposed as a mechanism for
overcoming dormancy in...
Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is an attractive building material because it is renewable, promotes fast installation, and possesses a high strength-to-weight ratio. The use of CLT in seismic applications has become increasingly common with the development of post-tensioned CLT rocking wall lateral force resisting systems (LFRS). The CLT pier-and-spandrel system designed,...
Making quality and winterhardiness in barley are "ultimate" phenotypes composed of
component, quantitatively inherited traits. A 69-point genome map of the seven chromosomes of
barley was used, in conjunction with multi-environment phenotypes for grain yield and malting
quality, to determine the chromosome locations of quantitative trait loci (QTLs). A combined...
Because of increasing competition from non-wood building
materials, efforts are being made to improve the design of stud walls.
The objective of this study is to develop and verify a theoretical
method and computer program that will predict the end fixity in stud
walls because of the sheathing being attached...
Three Nelder plots of 3-year-old red alder (Alnus rubra Bong) were used for this study at the Cascade Head Experimental Forest, Oregon in the growing season of 1988 at an elevation of 330 meters. Each Nelder plot
represented a range of densities from 238 to 101,219 trees per hectare. The...
Procedures were developed for assaying the biosynthesis of (-)-
kaurene-¹⁴C and other intermediates in gibberellin (GA) synthesis
from mevalonic acid-¹⁴C in cell-free enzyme extracts of immature
pea (Pisum sativum L. cv. Alaska) seeds. This system was utilized
to investigate three aspects of GA biosynthesis: (1) apparent capacities
for (-)-kaurene biosynthesis...
