Speleothems As Proxy For The Carbon Isotope Composition Of Atmospheric Co2, M. Baskaran, R. V. Krishnamurthy Dec 1993

Speleothems As Proxy For The Carbon Isotope Composition Of Atmospheric Co2, M. Baskaran, R. V. Krishnamurthy

Environmental Science and Geology Faculty Research Publications

We have measured the stable isotope ratios of carbon in a suite of recent cave deposits (<200 >years) from the San Saba County, Texas, USA. The methodology for dating these deposits using excess 210Pb was recently established [Baskaran and Iliffe, 1993]. The carbon isotope ratios of these samples, spanning the time period ∼1800–1990 AD, reflect the carbon isotope ratio of atmospheric CO2 for the same period. The pathways by which the δ13C of atmospheric CO2 is imprinted on these speleothems can be explained using a model developed by Cerling (1984). The results suggest that the …


Detection Of Alzheimer's Disease And Other Diseases Using An Improved Photoaffinity Labeling Method, Boyd E. Haley Dec 1993

Detection Of Alzheimer's Disease And Other Diseases Using An Improved Photoaffinity Labeling Method, Boyd E. Haley

Chemistry Faculty Patents

A method for diagnosing a neurological disease comprising detecting a neurological disease-specific biochemical marker macromolecule within a sample of extracted cerebral spinal fluid is disclosed. In particular, a radioactively labeled photoaffinity probe is used to diagnose a neurological disease. For instance, Alzheimer's disease can be diagnosed by detecting a disease-specific protein having a molecular weight of about 42,000 daltons, i.e., glutamine synthetase.

A Theoretical Investigation Of The Geometries, Vibrational Frequencies, And Binding Energies Of Several Mixed Alkali Halide Dimers, Robert J. Cave, Ian Ono '94 Dec 1993

A Theoretical Investigation Of The Geometries, Vibrational Frequencies, And Binding Energies Of Several Mixed Alkali Halide Dimers, Robert J. Cave, Ian Ono '94

All HMC Faculty Publications and Research

Results are presented from ab initio calculations on several mixed alkali halide dimers made up of Li, Na, F, and Cl. All of the dimers are investigated at the restricted Hartree–Fock level to provide ab initio estimates of geometries, vibrational frequencies, and binding energies. The dimer LiNaF2 is then treated using a variety of basis sets at the Hartree–Fock level, as well as at correlated levels (second‐order Møller–Plesset and coupled‐cluster singles and doubles) to examine the sensitivity of the calculations to use of higher levels of theory. The results are then compared to the experimental data available for the LiNaF2 …


Evidence For Day-To-Night Ion Transport At Low Solar Activity In The Venus Pre-Dawn Ionosphere, J. F. Brannon, Jane L. Fox, H. S. Porter Dec 1993

Evidence For Day-To-Night Ion Transport At Low Solar Activity In The Venus Pre-Dawn Ionosphere, J. F. Brannon, Jane L. Fox, H. S. Porter

Physics Faculty Publications

Periapsis of the Pioneer Venus spacecraft dropped below 180 km on August 28, 1992 near midnight, and 42 orbits of low altitude data at moderately low solar activity in the pre-dawn sector were obtained before contact was lost to the spacecraft in October, 1992. Through a combination of analysis of data from the PV orbiter ion mass spectrometer (OIMS) and modeling, we consider here what can be learned about the relative importance of plasma transport from the dayside and electron precipitation in maintaining the nightside ionosphere during the re-entry period. In particular, we examine here the atomic ion density profiles. …


Final State Distributions For Electron Capture From Orientated Rydberg Atoms, Jee-Ching Wang, Ronald E. Olson Dec 1993

Final State Distributions For Electron Capture From Orientated Rydberg Atoms, Jee-Ching Wang, Ronald E. Olson

Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Faculty Research & Creative Works

Final state nim distributions are studied for electron capture from orientated circular Rydberg atoms. Strong orientation effects are found for all quantum numbers at collision speeds comparable to the electron orbital speed. Predominant population of large m states is observed when the plane of the circular orbit is nearly perpendicular to the incident direction of the projectile. The Ini distributions show structures due to quasi-Thomas scattering even at low relative collision velocities. © 1993 IOP Publishing Ltd.


Plate Motions In The North Andean Region, Jeffrey T. Freymueller, James N. Kellogg, Victor Vega Dec 1993

Plate Motions In The North Andean Region, Jeffrey T. Freymueller, James N. Kellogg, Victor Vega

Faculty Publications

Repeated geodetic measurements with the Global Positioning System (GPS) provide direct measurements of displacements due to plate motions and active crustal deformation in Central America and northern South America, an area of complex interaction of the Nazca, Cocos, Caribbean and South American plates. The displacement rates for the period 1988-1991, obtained from the results of the first three Central And South America (CASA) GPS campaigns, are in general agreement with the predictions of the NUVEL-1 plate motion model, but there are differences in detail between the observations and the model. The Nazca-North Andes convergence rate vector measured by GPS is …


Atmospheric Hydrocarbon Analysis, Dawei Han Dec 1993

Atmospheric Hydrocarbon Analysis, Dawei Han

Dissertations and Theses

This treatise studied two correlated important issues in atmospheric chemistry: real-time monitoring of ambient air and removal mechanisms of atmospheric hydrocarbons. An analytical system was designed for the purpose of identification and measurement of sub-ppb level hydrocarbons of different reactivities in air samples. This analytical system was then applied to a series of smog-chamber studies which simulated the removal of reactive hydrocarbons from the atmosphere by reaction with hydroxyl radicals. Six representative atmospheric hydrocarbons (hexane, octane, toluene, m-xylene, a-xylene and mesitylene) were selected for these experiments. The experimental data indicated that the decay of atmospheric hydrocarbons under laboratory conditions is …


Pred-X Field Test Results, R.A. Field, J.E. Nel Dec 1993

Pred-X Field Test Results, R.A. Field, J.E. Nel

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

During the spring and summer of 1992, a number of sheep producers used Pred-X ear tags to guard against predation by coyotes. We were able to contact 20 of these producers through the help of the Wyoming Wool Growers Association, county agents and companies who sold the tags. Sheep producers in other states also used the tags and we were able to contact 21 of these producers through the cooperation of the American Sheep Industry Association whose representatives printed a short letter and a survey form in the October 1992 National Wool Grower Magazine. Phone calls were made to many …

Bears, Ostriches, And Specialized Grazing: Putting Guanding Dogs To Work, Jeffrey S. Green, Roger A. Woodruff

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

In this paper, we highlight three examples of using guarding dogs that, for various reasons, are somewhat different from the typical sheep-predator scenario.


State Program In Sotuh Dakota For Wildlife Damge Management, Emmett J. Keyser Dec 1993

State Program In Sotuh Dakota For Wildlife Damge Management, Emmett J. Keyser

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

In recent years, wildlife professionals have become increasingly more convinced that wildlife-damage programs must be integrated into existing wildlife management structures if both are to succeed in their missions. South Dakota has managed a state-run Animal Damage Control Program through the Department of Game, Fish and Parks since 1974.

Food Preferences Of Common Grackles, Red-Winged Blackbirds, And Yellow-Headed Blackbirds Presented With Cracked Corn, Sunflower Meats, And Brown Rice, Laura A. Mendoza, George M. Linz, David L. Bergman, William J. Bleier Dec 1993

Food Preferences Of Common Grackles, Red-Winged Blackbirds, And Yellow-Headed Blackbirds Presented With Cracked Corn, Sunflower Meats, And Brown Rice, Laura A. Mendoza, George M. Linz, David L. Bergman, William J. Bleier

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

Blackbirds migrating through North Dakota in late summer damage sunflower crops shortly after the yellow ray petals begin to wither and fall (Besser 1985). DeHaven (1982) reported bird damage losses of $7.4 million on 2.2 million acres in 1980. Various behavioral, chemical, and mechanical strategies have been employed over the past decade to reduce the damage. Although some of these methods have effectively dispersed or reduced blackbird populations, many have proven to be ineffective over time, economically infeasible, or culturally unacceptable (Guarino 1984).

Update On Development Of A Tranquilizer Trap Device, Peter J. Savarie, Kathleen A. Fagerstone, Edward W. Schafer Jr.

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

The foothold trap is an important tool that is used by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal Damage Control (ADC) program to capture coyotes (Canis latrans) that are causing livestock depredations. In FY 1990 and FY 1991 the ADC program trapped 17,732 and 15,805 coyotes, respectively (USDA 1991;1992). Foothold traps can cause trauma and injury to feet and legs (Englund 1982; Linhart et al. 1986; Olsen et al. 1986, 1988; Onderka et al. 1990, Tullar 1984) and Onderka et al. (1990) observed oral injuries such as broken teeth, and tongue and gum lacerations in captured animals. The ADC program and …


Lyme Disease: Incidence And Prevention, With Emphasis On Wildlife Biologists, Robert M. Timor, Robert S. Lane Dec 1993

Lyme Disease: Incidence And Prevention, With Emphasis On Wildlife Biologists, Robert M. Timor, Robert S. Lane

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

Lyme disease, a potentially debilitating illness in humans if untreated, is caused by the spirochete Bonrelia burgdorferi. First recognized in the mid-1970s in Lyme, Connecticut, the disease has been reported in at least 46 of the United States and in Canada, Australia, Asia, and Europe. This disease is primarily transmitted to humans by tick bite. In California, the tick believed primarily responsible is the western black-legged tick, Nodes pacificus In the upper midwestern and northeastern states, the usual vector is Nodes scapularis (formerly I_. ammini in part).


Response Of A Mixed-Grass Prairie In Western Nebraska To Livestock Exclusion And Prairie Dog Control, Dallas Virchow, Scott E. Hygnstrom Dec 1993

Response Of A Mixed-Grass Prairie In Western Nebraska To Livestock Exclusion And Prairie Dog Control, Dallas Virchow, Scott E. Hygnstrom

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

We examined responses of rangeland vegetation to exclusion of cattle and control of black-tailed prairie dogs ( n m s ludovicianus). Our objective was to determine the response in: 1) annual net primary production (ANPP) and 2) mean grass height (PH) to prairie dog control and/or livestock exclusion. We conducted the research in the northern mixed-grass prairie of Nebraska's central Panhandle. Average annual rainfall is shout 3 5 cm (14 in).


Rejex-It'" Ag-36 The Gentle Way To Repel Geese From Golf Courses And Other Turf Areas, Peter F. Vogt Dec 1993

Rejex-It'" Ag-36 The Gentle Way To Repel Geese From Golf Courses And Other Turf Areas, Peter F. Vogt

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

Birds have always been a problem in agriculture, specially for berries and fruits. Farmers and home owners have been fighting these problems with limited success for centuries. However, the problems with birds on turf are relatively new and are not even known by many people. The "Complete Guide to Pest Control" (Ware 1988) does not even mention geese as a pest, or golf courses as an area of bird problems.


Methyl Anduanilate Formulations To Repel Birds From Water At Airports And Food At Landfills, Richard A. Dolbeer, Jerrold L. Belant, Larry Clark Dec 1993

Methyl Anduanilate Formulations To Repel Birds From Water At Airports And Food At Landfills, Richard A. Dolbeer, Jerrold L. Belant, Larry Clark

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

Bird strikes to aircraft are of increasing concern to the aviation community (BSCE 1990). One factor contributing to strikes is that gulls and other bird species often flock to temporary pools of fresh water at airports after heavy rains (Blokpoel 1976). Another factor is the location of waste disposal facilities near airports which gulls and other bird species use as a food source (Burger and Gochfeld 1983, Greig et al. 1986). The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration issued Order 5200.5 in 1974 to prohibit waste disposal sites within 10,000 ft (3,000 m) of runways used by turbine-powered aircraft. This order was …


Twenty-Five Year History Of The Kansas Coyote Damage Control Program, F. Robert Henderson Dec 1993

Twenty-Five Year History Of The Kansas Coyote Damage Control Program, F. Robert Henderson

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

In the 1968 legislative session, an appropriate was made to Kansas State University to hire a predator and rodent control specialist. I was hired for this position on July 1, 1968. During August, 1968, I traveled to Missouri and spent a week working with Mr. Bob Smith, a long-time employee of the Missouri Conservation Department's Extension-Trapper program. He taught me how to teach people to trap coyotes.


Field Evaluation Of Three Strychnine Concentrations For Controlling Townsend's Pocket Gophers, George H. Matschke, Geraldine R. Mccann, Heather W. Krupa, John O'Brien Dec 1993

Field Evaluation Of Three Strychnine Concentrations For Controlling Townsend's Pocket Gophers, George H. Matschke, Geraldine R. Mccann, Heather W. Krupa, John O'Brien

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

Among requirements for the reregistration of strychnine, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires efficacy data from strychnine paste-alfalfa baits prepared with strychnine alkaloid paste (NV 830009). The EPA reviewed the data originally submitted by the state of Nevada for registering this strychnine alkaloid paste label and determined that more field efficacy data were needed to maintain the current registration. Therefore, additional efficacy data for strychnine paste-alfalfa baits on Townsend's pocket gopher (Thomomys townsendi) was requested from the state of Nevada.


The Prairie Dog Ecosystems And Endangered Species, Daniel W. Mulhern, Kenneth L. Powell Dec 1993

The Prairie Dog Ecosystems And Endangered Species, Daniel W. Mulhern, Kenneth L. Powell

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

The prairie dog is no doubt one of the most controversial animals in the western United States. Public sentiment regarding this rodent runs the gamut from some livestock producers who are satisfied only with complete eradication of all prairie dogs, and some animal rights groups who would like to see all prairie dogs given complete protection from any form of harm. Between these two extremes lie the real truths surrounding this sometimes destructive, mostly biologically beneficial, creature.


The Evolutionary Relationships Of The Skunks To Each Other And The Rest Of The Weasels; With A Note On Behavioral Idiosyncrasies, Jerry W. Dragoo Dec 1993

The Evolutionary Relationships Of The Skunks To Each Other And The Rest Of The Weasels; With A Note On Behavioral Idiosyncrasies, Jerry W. Dragoo

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

I will discuss four aspects of my current research with respect to skunks. The first concerns the recognition and conservation of potentially endangered populations of hog-nosed skunks. The second pertains to the evolutionary relationships among the three genera of skunks, based on genetic data. The third aspect also is based on molecular data, and is a study of the relationship of the skunks to the rest of the Mustelidae (weasels). Finally, I will discuss some of the behavioral idiosyncrasies I have observed in my endeavors to obtain skunk specimens.

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

We conducted this study to determine (1) the occurrence of human-wildlife interaction in the greater Omaha, Nebraska metropolitan area, (2) variations in interactions among urban habitat types, (3) the actions that people take in response to urban wildlife encounters, and (4) information channels that the public in this area uses to gain advice concerning wildlife management. Based on this information we plan to improve assistance criteria, educational materials, and programs relative to urban audiences.


Are Farmer And The Environment Natural Enemies Like The Sheep And The Coyote?, B.L. Flinchbaugh Ph.D. Dec 1993

Are Farmer And The Environment Natural Enemies Like The Sheep And The Coyote?, B.L. Flinchbaugh Ph.D.

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

Agricultural policy historically has been price and income policy for commercial farmers. Price supports, land retirement, stored reserves and deficiency payments have been the backbone of farm bills since Roosevelt's AAA (Agriculture Adjustment Act). Preservation of the family farm was the goal, along with an abundant supply of high quality food at reasonable prices, to convince the consumer that commercial agriculture policy was in their "best interests."


Survey Of Nuisance Urban Geese In The United States, James E. Forbes Dec 1993

Survey Of Nuisance Urban Geese In The United States, James E. Forbes

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

Problems caused by Canada geese in urban areas include defecation and molted feathers on lawns and golf courses, fowling water supplies, noise, attacks upon small children, and bird hazard to aircraft at airports. Detailed discussion of nuisance Canada geese in Connecticut and New York are reported by Forbes (1982) and Converse (1985). This paper updates the survey of nuisance Canada geese in urban areas of the eastern U.S. by Conover and Chasko (1985).

The Nature And Timing Of Wildlife Damage Events In Nebraska: A Five-Year Review Of Requests To Three Extension Wildlife Personnel, Dale J. Hafer, Scott E. Hygnstrom, Ron J. Johnson, Dennis M. Ferraro

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

We examined 2,241 telephone calls that were received by 3 University of Nebraska- Cooperative Extension personnel (the 3 junior authors) concerning wildlife damage during 1988-1992. Our objectives were to (1) determine the speciedgroups responsible for most damage-related telephone calls, (2) determine the timing of wildlife damage events by speciedgroup, and (3) differentiate damage-related telephone calls by urban versus rural situations.


Prospects For The Future In Animal Damage Control, Donald Hawthorne Dec 1993

Prospects For The Future In Animal Damage Control, Donald Hawthorne

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

I am pleased to be here to address a subject that is very special to many of us, one to which I have devoted my entire career. Animal damage control is a controversial component of wildlife management. In the late 1960's and early 70's, many wildlife practitioners tried to divorce themselves from animal damage control activities. In recent years, however, management of wildlife damage is viewed by many as a vital and integral part of wildlife management, whether to protect human interests and safety or to save an endangered species.


Prairie Vole Damage Control In No-Till Corn And Soybean, Ron A. Hines Dec 1993

Prairie Vole Damage Control In No-Till Corn And Soybean, Ron A. Hines

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

The prairie vole (Microtus ochragaster) is the primary rodent that reduces no-till crop plant stands in Southern Illinois. Because the vole requires a full canopy cover for protection from predators, established grass or legume sod fields and field borders (including wheat or rye stubble, set-aside and cover crop seedings) provide an ideal habitat for the development of a very high population of this rodent. In fields that have had the vegetative cover maintained for more than one year prior to planting no-till corn, plant stand reductions can reach 80 to 100 percent in intense (more than 30 per …


An Evaluation Of Laminated Offset Jawed Traps For Reducing Injuries To Coyotes, John M. Houben, Merrilee Holland, Sherman W. Jack, Carolyn R. Boyle Dec 1993

An Evaluation Of Laminated Offset Jawed Traps For Reducing Injuries To Coyotes, John M. Houben, Merrilee Holland, Sherman W. Jack, Carolyn R. Boyle

Great Plains Wildlife Damage Control Workshop Proceedings

Increasing public concern about injuries caused by foothold traps has resulted in a considerable amount of research for more humane traps. Much of this research effort has focused on evaluating the Victor No. 3 Soft-Catch trap manufactured by Woodstream Corporation, Lititz, Pennsylvania (Linhart and Dasch 1992). Research has concentrated on two major areas: (1) efficiency and selectivity of different trap types and modifications used for capturing coyotes (Canis latrans) and (2) reducing animal injuries associated with trapping (Phillips and Mullis 1991). The Soft-Catch trap has been shown to reduce foot injury sustained by most captured furbearers (Tullar 1984, Olsen et …
