Relative Effects of Land Use and Near-Stream Chemistry on Phosphorus in an Urban Stream
(ACSESS Digital Library, 2007)
Elevated levels of P in urban streams can pose significant water quality problems. Sources of P in urban streams, however, are difficult to identify. It is important to recognize both natural and anthropogenic sources of ...
Stormﬂow dynamics of dissolved organic carbon and total dissolved nitrogen in a small urban watershed
We examined patterns of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and total dissolved nitrogen (TDN) loading to a small urban stream during baseflow and stormflow. We hypothesized that lower DOC and TDN contributions from impervious ...
What is an Honors Student?
(Digital Commons, 2005)
It is first necessary to recognize the distinction between the questions “What is an honors student?” or better “What are the characteristics of an honors student?” and “How do you recognize a student with those characteristics?” ...

(Coldfront poetry and poetics magazine, 2015-10-26)
A study of concrete poetry in america in the 1970s in relation to technology
Water Relations Advantages for Invasive Rubus Armeniacus Over Two Native Ruderal Congeners
Despite species in the Rubus fruticosus complex (wild blackberry) being among the most invasive plants globally in regions with large annual fluctuations in water availability, little is known about their water relations. ...
FIRST-YEAR RESPONSES TO MANAGED FLOODING OF LOWER COLUMBIA RIVER BOTTOMLAND VEGETATION DOMINATED BY PHALARIS ARUNDINACEA
Managers at Smith and Bybee Wetlands Natural Area (SBW), an 800-ha preserve in Portland, Oregon, recently installed a water control structure to suppress invasive reed canarygrass (Phalaris arundinacea L.) with spring and ...
Functional morphology underlies performance differences among invasive and non-invasive ruderal Rubus species
The ability of some introduced plant species to outperform native species under altered resource conditions makes them highly productive in ecosystems with surplus resources. However, ruderal native species are also ...
Growing Cities Depend on Ecosystem Services
(Solutions for a Sustainable and Desirable Future, 2011)
Many studies have documented the growing fragility of a majority of the globe’s ecosystems. Policymakers and resource managers often frame such ecosystem challenges as primarily about protecting natural systems in rural ...
Profiles of Emergent Writing Skills Among Preschool Children
Background Research suggests that considerable individual differences may exist among preschool children in terms of emergent writing performance. However, there is no study examining this variability. Objective ...
