Biological Indices of Stream Pollution

Biological Indices of Stream Pollution

Date: August 1952
Creator: Russell, James C.
Description: A thorough biological survey and evaluation is a lengthy and expensive project. The number of technically trained persons required prevent its use by most public agencies. Since public health departments are the groups most frequently concerned with measuring the effects of pollution in streams, a need exists for a simplified method of sanitary survey. Recognizing this need, the Texas Heal Department assigned the writer the problem of devising a method of survey which would require a field party of two and could be conducted entirely from a mobile field laboratory.

A Screening of Fungi for Metabolites Inhibitory to the Growth of Bloom-Forming Blue-Green Algae

A Screening of Fungi for Metabolites Inhibitory to the Growth of Bloom-Forming Blue-Green Algae

Date: December 1970
Creator: Hardcastle, Ronald V.
Description: Since many approaches to dealing with algal blooms are inefficient, expensive, or harmful, it was concluded that a biologically-synthesized chemical agent, specifically inhibitory to pre-bloom algal cells, might prove helpful in controlling algal blooms. Fungi were chosen as the biological entities to investigate for such a chemical.

Considerations in Selecting, Developing, and Validating Laboratory Experience Units in General Biology for Prospective Elementary School Teachers

Considerations in Selecting, Developing, and Validating Laboratory Experience Units in General Biology for Prospective Elementary School Teachers

Date: August 1956
Creator: Syrocki, Boleslaus John, 1912-
Description: The primary purpose of this study was to develop the considerations and techniques for the selection, development, and validation of laboratory experience units in general biology for prospective elementary school teachers. The completed laboratory experience unites developed in this study may serve as resources of activities for college instructors who teach general biology to undergraduate majors in elementary education. For purposes of this study the laboratory experience unites were centered about those principles of general biology which an elementary school teacher should understand in order to teach about plants and animals.

Microbial Activity in "Overland Flow" Industrial Waste Treatment

Microbial Activity in "Overland Flow" Industrial Waste Treatment

Date: August 1969
Creator: Eubanks, Elizabeth R.
Description: One of the major problems of modern industries concerns the disposal of waste materials without the concomitant pollution of the environment. Several food and wood products industries have solved this problem by using the "overland flow" method of waste treatment. The research described in this paper was undertaken to ascertain the fact that the waste purification occurring on the disposal field is the result of microbial activities in the soil, and to study the transformations taking place.

Studies on Malic Enzyme from Hymenolepis Diminuta

Studies on Malic Enzyme from Hymenolepis Diminuta

Date: December 1971
Creator: Li, Tung
Description: Malic enzyme from the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, has been purified 320-fold to a final specific activity of 29.4. The purification procedure included heat treatment, followed by column chromatography with Sephadex G-20, two phosphocellulose columns, and Sephadex G-200, respectively. The final purified enzyme appeared to be homogeneous on disc gel electrophoresis and G-200 gel filtration.

Capillary Permeability to Narrow-Range Macromolecular Dextrans at Normal and Hypobaric Pressures

Capillary Permeability to Narrow-Range Macromolecular Dextrans at Normal and Hypobaric Pressures

Date: December 1972
Creator: Norris, John Anthony
Description: In view of its varied concepts and interpretations, and because of the discrepancies produced by the previous utilization of polydispersed dextrans, a study using extremely narrow-range molecular weight dextran fractions was initiated to reevaluate and consolidate some of the aspects of capillary permeability. A portion of the study was performed under decreased barometric pressure in order to clarify further some of the mechanisms involved in particulate transfer across the capillary endothelial membranes. Gel filtration procedures augmented the study as an assessment of the polydispersity effects of the dextrans employed.
