Antibody Adsorption Used in Identification of Similar Streptomyces Species
This investigation involved the production of specific antisera against known International Streptomyces project strains of Streptomyces.
The Autecology of Celtis Laevigata in Flood Plain Forests of Denton County, Texas
This thesis describes the present nature of one facet of some of the flood plain forest stands in Denton County, Texas. The specific purpose was to demonstrate the presence or absence of difference between the Celtis laevigata (commonly known as the hackberry, southern hackberry or sugarberry) populations in stands on Denton Creek and Elm Fork of the Trinity River.
An Ecological Survey of the Reptiles and Amphibians of Wise county, Texas
The purpose of this study was to record the relationships between the reptiles and amphibians of Wise County and the ecological subdivisions of the area. Wise County was chosen because of the heterogenity of the area and because of its proximity to other counties which have been previously and similarly studied.
Experimental Trichinosis in Birds
This work concerns itself with essentially four experiments: (1) the cecum-injective-infection experiment; (2) the anus-injective-infection experiment; (3) the mouth ingestive-infection with larvae, and (4) the mouth ingestive-infection with the flesh of infected rats.
Factors Affecting Pigment Production in Mycobacterium rhodocrous
This study was undertaken in order to isolate and identify the pigment, if possible, and to determine the effect of substrate, substrate concentration, light exposure, and pH on pigment production in this organism.
Factors Affecting Slime Formation in a Spray Irrigation Waste Disposal System
It was the purpose of this investigation to determine (1) what organisms are associated with the formation of this slime layer, (2) if certain chemical factors in the environment either enhance or retard formation of the slime layer, (3) whether or not there are certain chemical factors which are detrimental to slime formation, yet not detrimental to purification, or that perhaps enhance purification, (4) whether or not there are chemical factors which enhance purification of the effluent without preventing slime formation, and (5) what effects the chemical treatments have on the microbial flora of the soil system.
Individual, Social, and Seasonal Behavior of the Thirteen-Lined Ground Squirrel (Spermophilus tridecemlineatus)
The purpose of this study is to provide a qualitative, detailed description of individual and social behavior in a free-living population of thirteen-lined ground squirrels. Behavioral differences in relation to various periods of the annual cycle are also evaluated.
Metabolism of Methylglyoxal by Scenedesmus Quadricauda
The purpose of this study was to investigate the metabolic pathways of methylglyoxal in S. quadricauda.
Population Dynammics in Mixed Cultures of Microorganisms
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of substrate levels and different types of substrates on population changes of mixed cultures of Serratia marcescens and Saccharomyces cerevisiae, as compared to pure cultures.
Resistance of Some Soil Bacteria to Pentachlorophenol and Sodium Pentachlorophenate
The purpose of this study was to see if any soil bacteria were able to use pentachlorophenol or sodium pentachlorophenate either aerobically or anaerobically as a sole carbon source, to see if any soil bacteria could survive in high concentrations of sodium pentachlorophenate, to determine the maximum concentration of sodium pentachlorophenate which permitted the growth of some soil bacteria, to see the effects of varying concentrations of sodium pentachlorophenate on the growth curves of soil bacteria capable of growing in its presence, and to see if any soil bacteria could degrade sodium pentachlorophenate.
A Screening of Fungi for Metabolites Inhibitory to the Growth of Bloom-Forming Blue-Green Algae
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.
Some Physiological Characteristics of Vitreoscilla stercoraria
The purpose of this study was to elucidate some of the physiological characteristics of V. stercoraria with regard to oxygen requirements, growth, nutritional requirements, pH effects on growth and growth factors.
Studies on Microorganisms in Jet Aircraft Fuel Systems
Laboratory and field investigations during the past ten years have demonstrated that certain microorganisms can cause deleterious effects in jet fuel tank systems. These investigations have brought about new concepts concerning the mechanisms of utilization of certain constituents in jet fuel tanks by microorganisms. Since the presence of microorganisms is inevitable in fuel systems, research efforts have been directed towards identification and determination of the types of microorganisms which can utilize jet fuel hydrocarbons, fuel additives, polyurethane foam structural materials, and particular hydrocarbons present in the fuel.
A Study of a Branchiobdellid from Denton County, Texas
In this study, branchiobdellids were collected from crayfish captured from two adjacent sites in Denton County, Texas. Identification of the branchiobdellid, Cambarincola vitrea Ellis, was first made and then work was extended to include several topics of ecological interest.
Terrestrial Vertebrates of Fannin County, Texas
The purposes of this thesis were (1) to provide some knowledge of the herptiles and mammals of this area, (2) to clarify the distribution of many of these animals in this section of Texas, and (3) to provide additional ecological information about the area.
Ultrastructural Changes of Tumor Implants in Mice
The purpose of this investigation was to observe the sequential ultrastructural changes in tumor implants of a well established tumor line in isologous mice.
