Delineation of critical management areas at plot, field, and watershed scales for claypan soils
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
and water quality and given rise to non-point source pollutants. The claypan soil region of Missouri has a high runoff potential that increases the possibility of transport of non-point source pollutants to downstream sites. The Agricultural Policy...
An Analysis of the retention, condition and land use implications of tree plantings established under the Soil Bank Program, the Forestry Incentives Program and the Agricultural Conservation Program
([Missouri Agricultural Experiment Station], 1994)
A study of the property rights constraints in US agricultural cooperatives : theory and evidence
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 1998)
This research addresses the issue of efficient user-owned and controlled organizational design. Using agricultural cooperatives as an example set of user-owned and controlled institutional arrangements, the economic issue examined is the degree...
Playa wetland plant and soil response to predicted climate and land use change in the southern Great Plains
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
. The research included fourexperiments with various temperature, hydroperiod, and nitrogen treatments to simulate climate and land use change projections. In the first study,atemperature-controlled growth chamber experiment was used to evaluate treatment effects...
A Comparison Study of Grace-Based Groundwater Modeling for Data-Rich and Data-Scarce Regions
Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) modeling in water resources is an emerging field in hydrology. Investigation of groundwater change using remote sensing data helps overcome data limitation at a regional ...
Multi-scale factors influencing detection, site occupancy and resource use by foraging bats in the Ozark Highlands of Missouri
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
Conservation of bat populations requires understanding the associations between bats and their use of resources. We used maximum likelihood to estimate probability of site occupancy using acoustic data for ten species of ...
Amphibian metamorphosis and juvenile terrestrial performance following chronic cadmium exposure in the aquatic environment
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
degradation and amphibian declines. Manipulative experiments were conducted to investigate the performance (i.e., growth, survival) of amphibians that metamorphose from chemically-contaminated aquatic breeding sites. The heavy metal cadmium (Cd) was selected...
The impact analysis of structural change in Korean agriculture with respect to the Korean-United States free trade agreement : dynamic simultaneous equation model approach
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT REQUEST OF AUTHOR.] The main objective of this study is the analysis of the impacts of the Korean-United States Free Trade Agreement. On April 2, 2007, Korea and the United States concluded a...
Effects of Selected Contaminants on the Physical, Chemical, and Geotechnical Properties of Aquifer Solid
The primary objective of this study was to investigate the potential effects of hydrocarbons on the geotechnical properties of sand. A series of laboratory experiments were carried out to ascertain the influence of some common and widespread organic...
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 ...
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...
