The R Value At Vo2 Max During Maximal Graded Exercise Treadmill Tests Of Coronary Artery Diseased And Nondiseased Subjects, Sherry S. Williams Aug 1992

The R Value At Vo2 Max During Maximal Graded Exercise Treadmill Tests Of Coronary Artery Diseased And Nondiseased Subjects, Sherry S. Williams

Master's Theses

This study examined the R value at VO2 max during maximal graded treadmill exercise tests to determine if it was a reliable indicator of VO2 max and could therefore be used as a test termination criterion. The subjects in this study were 160 coronary artery diseased (CAD) patients and 170 nondiseased individuals. Data were collected from existing stress test records. The R value was also analyzed to determine if proportions of diseased and nondiseased subjects were the same. The time it took 100 CAD patients to reach VO2 max and exhaustion once R rose above 1.00 was also examined ...

Fifty Years Of Fisheries Management M An Obstinate Prairie Lake, Dennis L. Scarnecchia, James R. Wahl Jan 1992

Fifty Years Of Fisheries Management M An Obstinate Prairie Lake, Dennis L. Scarnecchia, James R. Wahl

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Little Wall Lake, a shallow 104 ha glacial lake in Hamilton County, Iowa, has been manipulated for about 50 years by fishery managers in an attempt to provide a stable sport fishery. Managers have used dredging, water level manipulation, aquatic vegetation control, mechanical fish removal and fish eradication with toxicants, sport fish stocking, introduction of piscivorous fish, artificial habitat structures, and winter aeration. Attempts to stabilize the fishery have been unsuccessful, and because of overpopulation and stunting of panfishes, total fish eradications were conducted in 1977 and 1989. We review the history of management efforts on the lake, and suggest ...

Checklist Of The Vascular Flora Of Page County, Iowa, Barbara L. Wilson

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

The vascular flora of Page County, Iowa, was studied from 1987 through 1991. Seven hundred forty two species and four hybrids of vascular plants were found. A quarter of the flora consists of non-native species. Taxa not previously reported in Iowa include: Amsinckia intermedia, Brassica kaber, Cardaria chalapensis, Callirhoe bushii, Carex mesochorea, Eleocharis xyridiformis, Euphorbia prostrata, Lactuca saligna, Leontodon autumnalis, Scirpus mucronatus, Sclerochloa dura, and Vernonia arkansana.

Geology Of Iowa Fens, C. A. Thompson, E. A. Bettis Iii, R. G. Baker Jan 1992

Geology Of Iowa Fens, C. A. Thompson, E. A. Bettis Iii, R. G. Baker

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Fens are peatlands which are dependent on groundwater discharge to provide nutrient enrichment. Fens are found in a variety of landscape positions and in most Iowa landform regions. This paper presents a classification system for Iowa fens based on landscape position, stratigraphy, and hydrologic factors. Iowa fens can be separated into six categories: 1) fens along valley wall slopes; the groundwater source for these fens is sand and gravel buried between glacial tills (inter-till); 2) fens in hummocky topography on the northwestern margin of the Des Moines Lobe landform region; the water source is sand and gravel buried within glacial ...


The Specific Surface Area Values For Iowa Tills, Keith E. Schilling, Brian L. Gedlinske Jan 1992

The Specific Surface Area Values For Iowa Tills, Keith E. Schilling, Brian L. Gedlinske

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Specific surface area is a property used by earth scientists to estimate the proportion of expandable clay minerals in soils. In this study, specific surface area method is shown to compare favorably with standard clay mineralogical techniques in determining gross differences in expandable clay mineral content in tills. The results of over 100 measurements on till samples from Iowa indicate undifferentiated pre-Illinoian tills from southern and southwestern Iowa have the highest specific surface area values of Iowa tills (ranging from nearly 100 to greater than 150 m2/g) and Wisconsinan Dows Formation tills have the lowest average specific surface ...

Three Botanists: Bessey, Pammel, And Hayden, Duane Isely, Lois Tiffany Jan 1992

Three Botanists: Bessey, Pammel, And Hayden, Duane Isely, Lois Tiffany

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Bessey was a multidirectioned innovator and evangelist of botanical education, conservation, and scientific agriculture. For example, he initiated the first undergraduate laboratory using microscopes for botany instruciton and he had no peer as a botany teacher in the latter part of the 19th century. His enthusiasm about the natural history of Iowa and surrounding states broadened the horizons of innumerable students and he was one of the founders of the Iowa Academy of Science. An organization man, Bessey quickly became president of any group with which he became affiliated, and eventually was both nationally and internationally known through his text ...

He received the B.A. Degree in 1925 from Wichita State University, the M.A. Degree in Zoology in 1926 from Northwestern University, and the Ph. D. Degree in Zoology in 1928 from the University of Wisconsin.

The University Of Iowa Museum Of Natural History: An Historical Perspective, George D. Shrimper Jan 1992

The University Of Iowa Museum Of Natural History: An Historical Perspective, George D. Shrimper

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

The 132-year record of UIMNH essentially mirrors historical and on-going trends in related institutions. As scholarship grew in the natural sciences during the 19th century, natural history museums became centers for scientific research. A "Golden Age" of museum-based expeditionary work and taxonomic research was marked at UI by the careers of curator/naturalists Calvin, Nutting, Macbride, and Shimek. Systematic biology and paleontology thrived with the accumulation of extensive collections. De-emphasis of "natural history" studies followed after 1920-30 with a concomitant growth in cellular and molecular biology. In seeking new directions and financial support, many museums, including UIMNH, shifted emphasis to ...


Necklace Radio Transmitter Attachment For Pheasants, Terry Z. Riley, Bruce A. Fistler Jan 1992

Necklace Radio Transmitter Attachment For Pheasants, Terry Z. Riley, Bruce A. Fistler

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

We tested a pre-assembled, necklace-radio-transmitter-attachment design on female ring-necked pheasants (Phasianus colchicus) in northern Iowa. Birds were captured by nightlighting and bait trapping between September 1989 and March 1990. Radio transmitters were attached to 128 using a wire necklace. Two birds had problems adapting to the necklace, and 3 birds removed them. Twenty-three birds were still alive and wearing necklaces at the end of the study, for an average of 318 (SD= ± 52) days. Ease of attachment, long durability, light weight, and minimal bulk make the necklace an effective alternative to harness and poncho mounts.

Book Review: Landforms Of Iowa, Michael L. Thompson Jan 1992

Book Review: Landforms Of Iowa, Michael L. Thompson

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Many of us are interested in the landscape around us. We ask: Why is this hill so steep or why is that valley so wide? Why does my garden's soil have so much clay? Why does Iowa have no mountains' Landforms of Iowa should capture a broad audience of teachers, students, agriculturalists of all sorts, historians, homemakers, naturalists, botanists, biologists, foresters, geographers, civil engineers, as well as geologists and pedologists-in short, just about any Iowan who has ever wondered how and when the landscape at his or her doorstep or outside the car window was fashioned. Its stated purposes ...

History Of Mammal Study In Iowa, John B. Bowles Jan 1992

History Of Mammal Study In Iowa, John B. Bowles

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

The first records of mammals in Iowa were from explorers, survey parties heading westward and early seeders. Generation of checklists of state mammals began in 1840 and culminated with the annotated list by Scott (1937) and biogeographic analysis by Bowles (1975). Recent focus has been on rare species status and mammalian ecology, e.g., Loess Hills, riparian habitat, agricultural practices, and reestablished grasslands.
