Sustainability Through Profitability: The Triple Bottom Line, 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Sustainability Through Profitability: The Triple Bottom Line, Connie I. Reimers-Hild
Kimmel Education and Research Center - Presentations and White Papers
Today’s highly competitive, globalized world requires organizations and businesses to think differently about how they are going to stay in business. Businesses can no longer afford to focus on profits as their sole purpose for existence. Organizations must instead think about the “Triple Bottom Line” and its implications for their ability to grow their brand, customer loyalty and profits.
The Coal River Basin: A 2009 Water Budget Study, 2010 Marshall University
The Coal River Basin: A 2009 Water Budget Study, R. Dale Biller
Theses, Dissertations and Capstones
The Coal River Watershed covers an area of some 890 square miles in southern West Virginia of which 863 square miles was investigated in this study. Both online and field data were collected over period from January 13, 2009 to January 13, 2010. The basin was studied as a closed system having an input, which was precipitation, and outputs, rainfall interception, evapotranspiration, and stream discharge that was separated into base flow and overland flow.
The effective rainfall of the watershed was calculated using the Thiessen polygon method to be 42 inches for the year, 48% of that water discharged by ...
An Inventory And Condition Survey Of The Western Australian Part Of The Nullarbor Region, 2010 Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia
An Inventory And Condition Survey Of The Western Australian Part Of The Nullarbor Region, P A. Waddell, A K. Gardner, P Hennig
The inventory and condition survey of the Western Australian part of the Nullarbor region, undertaken by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA) between 2005 and 2007, describes and maps the natural resources of the region. This survey report provides a baseline record of the existence and condition of the area's natural resources, to assist with the planning and implementation of land management practices. The report identified and described the condition of soils, landforms, vegetation, habitat, ecosystems, and declared plants and animals. It also assessed the impact of pastoralism and made land management recommendations. The Nullarbor region ...
From Energy Gradient And Natural Selection To Biodiversity And Stability Of Ecosystems, 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln
From Energy Gradient And Natural Selection To Biodiversity And Stability Of Ecosystems, Bo Deng
Faculty Publications, Department of Mathematics
The purpose of this paper is to incorporate well-established ecological principles into a foodweb model consisting of four trophic levels --- abiotic resources, plants, herbivores, and carnivores. The underlining principles include Kimura's neutral theory of genetic evolution, Liebig's Law of the Minimum for plant growth, Holling's functionals for herbivore foraging and carnivore predation, the One-Life Rule for all organisms, and Lotka-Volterra's model for intraand interspecific competitions. Numerical simulations of the model led to the following statistical findings: (a) particular foodwebs can give contradicting observations on biodiversity and productivity, in particular, all known functional forms -- - positive, negative, sigmoidal ...
Cellular And Molecular Dissection Of Pluripotent Adult Somatic Stem Cells In Planarians, 2010 Wright State University - Main Campus

Freshwater planarians, Plathelminthes, have been an intriguing model animal of regeneration studies for more than 100 years. Their robust regenerative ability is one of asexual reproductive capacity, in which complete animals develop from tiny body fragments within a week. Pluripotent adult somatic stem cells, called neoblasts, assure this regenerative ability. Neoblasts give rise to not only all types of somatic cells, but also germline cells. During the last decade, several experimental techniques for the analysis of planarian neoblasts at the molecular level, such as in situ hybridization, RNAi and fluorescence activated cell sorting, have been established. Moreover, information about genes ...

BACKGROUND: The octapeptide Angiotensin II is a key hormone that acts via its receptor AT1R in the brainstem to modulate the blood pressure control circuits and thus plays a central role in the cardiac and respiratory homeostasis. This modulation occurs via activation of a complex network of signaling proteins and transcription factors, leading to changes in levels of key genes and proteins. AT1R initiated activity in the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS), which regulates blood pressure, has been the subject of extensive molecular analysis. But the adaptive network interactions in the NTS response to AT1R, plausibly related to the development of ...
Tritrophic Effects Of Host Plants On An Herbivore-Pathogen Interaction, 2010 Iowa State University
Tritrophic Effects Of Host Plants On An Herbivore-Pathogen Interaction, Aaron J. Gassmann, S. Patricia Stock, Bruce E. Tabashnik, Michael S. Singer
Tritrophic interactions may include directly harmful effects of host plants on herbivores, and directly or indirectly harmful effects of host plants on the natural enemies of herbivores. Tritrophic interactions involving parasitoids and predators have received considerable attention but less is known about how host plants affect entomopathogens. We compared growth and resistance to entomopathogenic nematodes for “woolly bear” caterpillars, Grammia incorrupta(=geneura) (Hy. Edwards) (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae) fed lettuce, Lactuca sativa L. (Asteraceae), versus threadleaf groundsel, Senecio longilobus Benth. (Asteraceae). Both plants are members of the Asteraceae, but only S. longilobus contains pyrrolizidine alkaloids. Caterpillars gained more mass when fed L ...
