Distribution And Taxonomic Status Of Blarina Hylophaga Elliot (Insectivora: Soricidae), Sarah B. George, Jerry R. Choate, Hugh H. Genoways Dec 1981

Distribution And Taxonomic Status Of Blarina Hylophaga Elliot (Insectivora: Soricidae), Sarah B. George, Jerry R. Choate, Hugh H. Genoways

Mammalogy Papers: University of Nebraska State Museum

Systematic relationships of southern populations of short-tailed shrews (genus Blarina) are assessed on the basis of univariate and multivariate statistics. Populations are separated into two phena; southwestern short-tailed shrews are significantly larger morphometrically than southeastern forms. The two phena apparently represent distinct species. The name Blarina hylophaga is available for southwestern populations, and the name Blarina carolinensis is here restricted to short-tailed shrews in the southeastern United States.


Systematic Review Of The Texas Pocket Gopher, Geomys Personatus (Mammalia: Rodentia), Stephen L. Williams, Hugh H. Genoways Dec 1981

Systematic Review Of The Texas Pocket Gopher, Geomys Personatus (Mammalia: Rodentia), Stephen L. Williams, Hugh H. Genoways

Mammalogy Papers: University of Nebraska State Museum

The Texas pocket gopher (Geomys personarus), which occupies a range in southern Texas and extreme northeastern Tamaulipas, was examined for morphological variation. Univariate and multivariate analyses were used to determine age, secondary sexual, individual, and geographic variation. Significant differences were found among the three age classes and between the sexes for 12 of 13 cranial measurements. Males displayed higher individual variation than females. Distributions of the six previously recognized subspecies (fallax, fuscus, maritimus, megapotamus, personatus, and streckeri) were examined. An additional subspecies is recognized and described. Of the seven subspecies of G. personatus, fuscus and streckeri form a group distinct ...


Intraisland And Interisland Variation In Antillean Populations Of Molossus Molossus (Mammalia: Molossidae), Hugh H. Genoways, Robert C. Dowler, Catherine H. Carter Dec 1981

Intraisland And Interisland Variation In Antillean Populations Of Molossus Molossus (Mammalia: Molossidae), Hugh H. Genoways, Robert C. Dowler, Catherine H. Carter

Mammalogy Papers: University of Nebraska State Museum

Significant levels of secondary sexual variation and expected levels of individual variation were demonstrated in all samples of Molossus molossus from Jamaica, Guadeloupe, and Trinidad examined with univariate analyses. Significant morphometric differences were demonstrated among samples of Molossus molossus that originated from geographically close localities on the same island. Using multivariate techniques, broader patterns of geographic variation were demonstrated among the Antillean populations of M. molossus.

1981 Fall Field Day

Nebraska Bird Review

About forty people participated in the 1981 Fall Field Day, which was scheduled from noon Saturday 3 October to noon Sunday 4 October, but which was anticipated by early arrivals Friday and on Saturday morning. The weather was windy and cool, the skies overcast much of the time, with some rain Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning overcast so that it was hard to get colors. But almost as soon as the meeting broke up Sunday noon the sky cleared and everybody went home in bright sunshine. There was a slide show Saturday night. Of the reports on unusual species, submitted ...

The Ecology Of The Raccoon (Procyon Lotor) In Cades Coves, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Alan Robert Rabinowitz Dec 1981

The Ecology Of The Raccoon (Procyon Lotor) In Cades Coves, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Alan Robert Rabinowitz

Doctoral Dissertations

From September 1979 through September 1980, 288 captures of 153 raccoons were made in Cades Cove, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee. Fourteen raccoons were equipped with radio-transmitters to monitor movements, activity patterns, and denning behavior. Measurements, blood samples, and ectoparasites were taken from all animals.

Population density was estimated to be 1 raccoon/17 ha with sex and age ratios indicating a stable population. Parturition occurred in early June with a mean litter size of 2.8 young. Average longevity of raccoons was 30 months with a maximum longevity of approximately 86 months. There were indications of increased male ...

Optimum Yield And The Fcma: Uneven Distribution Of Management Burden, Herrick J. Johnson Dec 1981

Optimum Yield And The Fcma: Uneven Distribution Of Management Burden, Herrick J. Johnson

Theses and Major Papers

Until the establishment of the Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1976 (FCMA), fish outside the United States' twelve mile fishery zone were, according to international law, common property and belonged to the nation or individual that caught them. This common property law was based on the concept that fish resources were so large that no amount of fishing would interfere with the right of others to catch fish. Modern technology, however, has created equipment that enabled foreign and domestic fishermen to over-fish the resource. A reduced domestic catch led coastal fishermen to support a bill that unilaterally extended the ...


Selective Recovery Of Corrugated Clippings, Timothy J. Rourke Dec 1981

Selective Recovery Of Corrugated Clippings, Timothy J. Rourke

Paper Engineering Senior Theses

Selective recovery of waste corrugated into the kraft and NSSC fractions is gaining in popularity. This selective reuse of fibers enables the papermaker to use more recycled fiber in the linerboard portion of corrugated boxes. It is well documented that 100% recycled paper can be used in the medium while the highest percentage of secondary fibers in the linerboard is 30%. Greater than 30% recycled fiber in the linerboard results in poor runnability. Since reuse of secondary fibers in the medium is already at a maximum, this paper will place more emphasis on the reuse in the linerboard.

Nebraska Bird Review

DIXON COUNTY. In mid-March 1981 there were thousands of Snow Geese on the Missouri near Ponca, also Canadas, and we saw 6 White-fronteds up close in a plowed field. We also saw lots of ducks: Pintails, Ring-necks, Redheads, Mallards, and others. We saw Field Sparrows, and in town White-breasted Nuthatches, Robins, and Starlings were everywhere.

The Use Of Electrocoagulation As A Flocculating Aide For Deinking, James L. Schram Dec 1981

The Use Of Electrocoagulation As A Flocculating Aide For Deinking, James L. Schram

Paper Engineering Senior Theses

The effects of electrocoagulation as a flocculating aide for deinking was evaluated using a "homemade" electrode unit. The unit was inserted into a laboratory-size Voith-Morden forced-air flotation cell. The process of electrocoagulation involves two steps:

1. Reducing the zeta potential of the system to 0.0 mV by pH adjustment.

2. The passing of current through the stock suspension which causes the electrolysis of the water, and thus hydrogen and oxygen gas bubbles are produced. These gas bubbles collect ink particles to form solid-gas composites which can be removed more easily using flotation.

The process was evaluated on the forced-air ...


The Nutritional Value Of Selected Vegetarian Meals, Kathleen R. Wheeler Dec 1981

The Nutritional Value Of Selected Vegetarian Meals, Kathleen R. Wheeler

Loma Linda University Electronic Theses, Dissertations & Projects

The complementary effect of various vegetable proteins as eaten by humans in vegetarian meals was evaluated using the PER method in rats. In addition, the quality of leaf protein as the only protein source in one of the diets was evaluated.

Five diets were formulated consisting of a typical breakfast menu, a typical lunch, a typical supper, a combination of the three meals, and a mixture of green leafy vegetables. The diets were isocaloric and isonitrogenous and consisted of 10% protein, 8% fat, 69% carbohydrate, 7% cellulose, 4% mineral mixture, and 2% vitamin mixture. The control diet was prepared using ...
