The Effects Of Weight Training On The Self-Esteem Of College Students, John Christopher Wirszyla

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Master’s Theses

This study investigated the effects of a weight training program on the self-esteem of college students. Subjects enrolled in a Beginning Weight Training course, a Beginning Golf course and an Introduction to Sociology course were administered the Tennessee Self Concept Scale (TSCS) at the beginning and end of an eight-week period. A subscale of the TSCS, the Total Positive (TP) score, served as the focal point of this study. The statistics used to analyze the data included ANOVA for between group comparisons and a matched pair t test for within group differences. The subjects in the Weight Training class significantly ...

The Effects Of Mental Imagery On Free Throw Performance, Lori Ansbach Eckert

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Master’s Theses

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of mental imagery on free throw performance. The investigator used a pretest-posttest randomized group design consisting of three treatment groups and a control group. A total of 120 subjects were randomly assigned four groups. Subjects received either (1) mental practice, (2) physical practice, (3) a combination of mental and physical practice, or (4) no practice. The study was conducted over a period of five contact sessions lasting approximately twenty minutes each. Utilizing the analysis of multiple comparisons for ANCOVA, results demonstrated that the mental imagery group did improve their free ...

Characterization Of Aminoisobutyric Acid Transport Systems In Mcf-8, A Line Of Malignant Mouse Mammary Epithelial Cells, Bruce A. Voyles Jan 1989

Characterization Of Aminoisobutyric Acid Transport Systems In Mcf-8, A Line Of Malignant Mouse Mammary Epithelial Cells, Bruce A. Voyles

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Uptake of α-aminoisobutyric acid (AIB) by MCF-8, a line of malignant mouse mammary epithelial cells derived from a D2 hyperplastic nodule outgrowth, was found to be mediated by two different transport systems. In actively dividing cells about 60% of total AIB uptake is mediated by an A-like system: transport was Na+ -dependent, was inhibited by N-methyl-AIB, was maximal at pH 7.5 and ceased at pH 6. Transport by this system was reduced by nearly 65% when cell division ceased in confluent cultures, but the addition of insulin and/or calf serum to the medium of quiescent cells restored activity ...


Ada Hayden: A Tribute, Duane Isely Jan 1989

Ada Hayden: A Tribute, Duane Isely

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Dr. Ada Hayden was a member of the Iowa State College of Botany faculty, 1920-1950. Her floristic studies of the lake region in northern Iowa are possibly the most authoritative for any part of the state. Hayden was curator of the Iowa State herbarium, 1934-1950, and contributed immeasurably to its development. This research facility has recently been named the Ada Hayden Herbarium. In the sense that L. H. Pammel was father of the Iowa State park system, her bequest is the state preserves. After some 25 years as a conservation activist, she published descriptions of 22 prairie areas in ten ...


Biological Pesticides: Biotechnology's Answer To Silent Spring, Donald H. Dean Jan 1989

Biological Pesticides: Biotechnology's Answer To Silent Spring, Donald H. Dean

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

In the 25 years since the publication of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring the public has come to realize the environmental impact of heavy use of chemical pesticides. To add insult to injury, many insects, including the disease vector, the mosquito, are now virtually resistant to standard chemical pesticides. Biotechnology is now providing a positive response to these dilemmas through the production and development of improved forms of microbial pest control agents: biological pesticides. Biological pesticides are pathogens, or predators, of insects such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses, and predatory insects or vertebrates such as mosquito fish which reduce the ...


Ecology Of Iowa Drosophila Ii. Lowland Forest And Sand Prairie, Neil J. Jennings, Robert D. Seager Jan 1989

Ecology Of Iowa Drosophila Ii. Lowland Forest And Sand Prairie, Neil J. Jennings, Robert D. Seager

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

The seasonal abundances of Drosophila species collected from a lowland forest community and from a sand prairie community in northeastern Iowa are compared. With some important exceptions, the patterns seen in the lowland forest community were similar to what had been observed in a previous collection (Jennings et al. 1985). Fewer species and many fewer individuals were collected from the sand prairie community, although in general the patterns seen were similar to those of the lowland forest community. Strong evidence of microhabitat differentiation was seen in both communities. In contrast to our previous study, none of the seasonal abundance patterns ...


The Vascular Flora Of Pilot Knob State Preserve, William C. Watson Jan 1989

The Vascular Flora Of Pilot Knob State Preserve, William C. Watson

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Pilot Knob State Preserve is a 365 acre (147 ha) area lying within the boundaries of Pilot Knob State Park. Located in north central Iowa near the northeast corner of Hancock County, this preserve resides on the eastern morainal system of the Des Moines Lobe left from the Wisconsinan glaciation. The vegetation of the preserve is primarily a deciduous woodland on rolling hills interspersed with wetland habitats in the hollows. Iowa's only floating bog is present in one of these hollows and supports numerous vascular plants uncommon to the state. Two species, Carex cephalantha (Bailey) Bickn. and Drosera rotundifolia ...

Estimates Of Genetic Variability In F2 Maize Populations, Geng-Chen Han, A. R. Hallauer Jan 1989

Estimates Of Genetic Variability In F2 Maize Populations, Geng-Chen Han, A. R. Hallauer

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Maize (Zea mays L.) breeders emphasize selection within F2 populations derived from crosses of inbred lines: Studies of the inheritance of quantitative traits in maize have been conducted primarily for generically broad-based populations. Objectives of our study were to estimate the generic variability in F2 populations developed from crosses of related and unrelated lines and to determine the effects of five generations of random intermating of plants within F2 populations on the estimates of genetic variability. Estimates of additive genetic variability were greater in the unrelated line crosses, but the estimates were not significantly different before and ...


Plant-Parasitic Nematodes In Iowa, Don C. Norton Jan 1989

Plant-Parasitic Nematodes In Iowa, Don C. Norton

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Ninety-nine species of plant-parasitic nematodes are recorded from Iowa. Twenty-seven are new state records. Most samples were collected from around maize or from prairies or woodlands. Similarity (Sorensen's index) of species was highest for the maize-prairie habitats (0.49), compared with maize-woodlands (0. 23), or prairie-woodland (0. 3 7) habitats. Nematode communities were most diverse in prairies with a Shannon-Weiner index (H') of 2.74, compared with 1.65 and 1.07 for woodlands and maize habitats, respectively. Evenness of species (J') was 0.41, 0.78, and 0.48 for maize, prairies, and woodlands, respectively.

A Non-Gall Forming Eurosta Solidaginis (Diptera: Tephritidae), W. Bryan Stoltzfus Jan 1989

A Non-Gall Forming Eurosta Solidaginis (Diptera: Tephritidae), W. Bryan Stoltzfus

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Eurosta Jolidaginis (Fitch) can parasitize Solidago canadensis without forming a gall. This non-gall former apparently escapes most of the parasitism and predation of the gall forming fly. Levels of host-plane infestation by non-gall formers may approach the frequency of gall formation.


Nesting Of Raptors Uncommon In Iowa: Summary And New Records, Dean M. Roosa, Jon Stravers Jan 1989

Nesting Of Raptors Uncommon In Iowa: Summary And New Records, Dean M. Roosa, Jon Stravers

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

The nesting status of the Turkey Vulture, Bald Eagle, Northern Harrier, Sharp-shinned Hawk, Cooper's Hawk, Red-shouldered Hawk, Broad-winged Hawk, Swainson's Hawk, Peregrine Falcon, Common Barn-Owl, Burrowing Owl, Long-eared Owl and Short-eared Owl is reviewed and previously unpublished records added. Also the potential for the Northern Saw-whet Owl and Osprey to nest in Iowa is discussed. Although several species are on the brink of extirpation as part of Iowa's nesting avifauna, the Bald Eagle has returned as a regular nester. Over 100 previously unpublished nesting reports and some management recommendations are included.


Effects Of Intensive Training On Prolactin Responses To Submaximal Exercise In Males, A. C. Hackney, R. L. Sharp, W. S. Runyan, R. J. Ness Jan 1989

Effects Of Intensive Training On Prolactin Responses To Submaximal Exercise In Males, A. C. Hackney, R. L. Sharp, W. S. Runyan, R. J. Ness

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

The purpose of this study was to determine if serum prolactin responses to submaximal exercise were affected by 8 weeks of intensive training (5 cl/wk, 90 min/d 65-200% V02max). Nine males performed 90 minute continuous exercise bouts (cycle ergometry; 65% V02 max) at the end of 1, 4, and 8 weeks of training. Blood samples were obtained pre-training, and pre-, post-exercise. Significant differences were not seen in pre- and post-exercise prolactin levels at weeks 1 and 4. However, at week 8 the post-exercise prolatin was significantly greater than the pre-exercise levels (6.8 ± 0.9 ...

Additions To The Iowa Pteridophyte Flora - Iii, James H. Peck

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

To prior reports on the studies of the Iowa pteridophyre flora, five taxa (Botrychium campestre Wagner & Farrar, Botrychimn matricariifolium A. Braun, CyJtopterislragilis (L) Bernh., Cystopteris laurentiana (Weath.) Blasdell, and Lycopodium inundatum L.) are added, along with 215 new county occurrence records for 39 taxa. Currently, the Iowa preridophyte flora consists of 70 taxa, supported with 1656 county occurrence records; only 72 (4%) of these records are based solely on collections made before 1950.
