Harmful and Beneficial Mammals of the Arid Interior, With Special Reference to the Carson and Humboldt Valleys, Nevada

Date: 1908
Creator: Bailey, Vernon, 1864-1942
Description: "Large tracts of arid desert are now being reclaimed and converted into arable land, rich in agricultural possibilities. Crops, trees, live stock, poultry, and ditch banks in this reclaimed territory suffer from the depredations of certain mammals, and the farmers, many of whom are from remote localities, are not always able to discriminate between friends and foes; nor are they always acquainted with cheap and effective methods of destroying the noxious kinds. The report comprises a brief account of the commoner mammals of the region, with special reference to their economic status and the best means of destroying the noxious species, and has been prepared as a practical aid to the ranchmen of the arid interior." -- p. 2. Among the animal discussed are squirrels, chipmunks, various types of mice, muskrats, rats, gophers, rabbits, bobcats, desert foxes, coyotes, skunks, badgers, weasels, minks, otters, and bats.

Progress in Legume Inoculation

Progress in Legume Inoculation

Date: 1908
Creator: Kellerman, Karl F. (Karl Frederic), 1879-1934 & Robinson, Theodore R.
Description: "The peculiar value of legumes for maintaing and increasing the fertility of soils is due to certain bacteria which develop nodules upon the roots of leguminous plants and which have the unique power of rendering the free nitrogen of the atmosphere available for plant growth. Without these bacteria, legumes, like other crops, exhaust the soil of its combined nitrogen. In many regions certain types of these important bacteria are abundant in the soil; in other localities they must be imported, either by distributing soil from a field where they are known to be present or by using pure cultures of the proper organisms grown under artificial conditions. The old method of importing the bacteria by distributing soil from fields containing them is not only expensive but there is very great danger of spreading weeds and destructive crop diseases as well as the desirable bacteria. Under modern conditions, therefore, it is wisest to depend chiefly upon the intelligent manipulation of pure cultures for inoculating leguminous crops." -- p. 7. This bulletin is a broad overview of the circumstances which necessitate soil inoculation and methods of inoculation.
