Despite being a highly charismatic and frequently exhibited organism,
Giant Pacific Octopus (Enteroctopus dofleini) population dynamics
are poorly understood. Basic monitoring data for this species is
limited to bycatch and stomach contents of other fisheries species. An
essential step to a better estimation of population size and
productivity is to...
The roles of today’s grandparents
have drastically changed from fifty
years ago. Grandparents are now
expected to give up their retirement
and that “grandparent relationship”
to fill in the position of “parent” when
the child’s parents can no longer do
This can be a hardship for both
Dietary protein intake has been observed to influence the induction
of cancer in animals exposed to carcinogens, presumably by affecting the
activities of enzyme systems which metabolize them. One such carcinogen
is aflatoxin B₁ (AFB₁) a mold metabolite and frequent contaminant of
foodstuffs. Variations in the levels of dietary proteins...
The purpose of this study was to identify the factors that
influence electronics technicians to participate in work-related
training and to explain the relationships among those factors.
Based on Steers and Rhodes' Employees Attendance Process Model,
the subjects' willingness to participate in work-related training
was regarded as an indicator of...
Dimethylbenz (a) anthracene (EMBA), a carcinogen that requires
metabolic activation to produce active metabolites capable of
binding to DNA, has been studied in the trout and other fish.
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are of importance as they
are ubiquitous in the environment and their carcinogenic effects
in fish from contaminated...
The Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management propose to adopt coordinated ecosystem management direction for the lands they administer within the range of the northern spotted owl. This Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SETS) presents as alternatives the options, with slight modifications, developed by the Forest Ecosystem Management Assessment...
