Effects of low crude protein diets with amino acid supplementation on broiler performance in the starter period
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
A series of experiments were conducted to examine the effects of feeding low crude protein (CP) corn and soybean meal diets with crystalline amino acid supplementation to broilers from 0-3 weeks of age. It was hypothesized that these diets would...
Winter bird densities and eastern wood-pewee breeding demography across a savanna-woodland-forest gradient in the Missouri Ozarks
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
and woodland is needed to inform management. Our objective was to determine densities of common winter migrants and resident birds in savannas, woodlands, and non-managed forests in the Missouri Ozark Highlands. We estimated detection probabilities...
Behavioral choice and demographic consequences of wood frog habitat selection in response to land use
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
, Missouri, and South Carolina are determining the effects of timber harvest on the persistence of amphibian populations. The purpose of my dissertation research was to define adult wood frog nonbreeding habitat in continuous oak-hickory forest...
Enhancing bluegill production through least-cost diet development and novel rearing strategies
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
Amidst growing demand for large, food-size bluegill Lepomis macrochirus, lack of an affordable, balanced diet and inadequate rearing technologies remain the major concerns of bluegill producers seeking to run profitable ...
Missouri approach to : animal waste management
(University of Missouri. Extension Division, 1979)
of Missouri, 1969, as amended, gives the Clean Waster Commission the responsibility and authority to correct and/or prevent 'pollution' of 'waters of the state.' Research data and experience in handling livestock wastes have been used to develop...
Effects of prescribed fire and timber harvest on terrestrial salamander abundance, behavior, and microhabitat use
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2014)
surveys for three years and used a statistical modeling approach that accounted for the tendency of terrestrial salamanders to be belowground and unavailable for surveys. I found that terrestrial salamander density at our Missouri Ozark study site ranged...
Storied possessions : post-household disbandment older adult placemaking through meaningful belongings
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
into smaller spaces. There is increased social and anthropological research on household disbandment. Less is known from environment and behavior and interior design theoretical perspectives about the subsequent process of reestablishing a meaningful place...
Evolution of the Bahamian coastal environment of San Salvador Island over the last 3,500 years based on triangle pond sediment cores
The multiproxy examination of ten soft sediment cores extracted from Triangle Pond was used in order to establish alterations in the northwestern coastal environment of San Salvador Island, The Bahamas over the last 3,500 ...
Woody species and forest structure in northern Missouri riparian forests with different ages and watershed sites
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
A chronosequence (1 to 250+ years) of 160 woody species plots was established throughout northern Missouri riparian forests to explain the influence of site hydrology and stand age on species distribution and forest structure. Stand age was found...
Development and validation of standardized sampling protocols for assessing freshwater mussel populations in Missouri
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
step in assessing populations. We surveyed 14 sites in the Meramec River Basin in East-central Missouri to determine the effectiveness of visual sampling methods and to determine the effects of habitat variability on the effectiveness of these methods...
