Social capital and membership in dairy cooperatives in Kenya
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
and autonomous, and features member-ownership, member-control and member-benefits. This research is centered around two vertically integrated dairy cooperatives in Kenya; the farmer members are owners of a cooperative that own their processing. The cooperative...
An evaluation of pre- and post-timber harvest water quality in low-order streams in the Missouri Ozarks
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
Missouri Department of Conservation's (MDC) best management practices (BMPs) for Regenerative Oak Clear Cutting (ROCC) practice was evaluated on effectiveness to preserve downstream water quality. Fifteen sites, located on MDC lands in Shannon...
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...

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 ...
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 ...
Hydrodynamic characteristics and capillary-assisted heat transfer enhancement of non-condensing/condensing two-phase flows
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2020)
Interfacial characteristics of two-phase flows were studied through visualization experiments and numerical simulation using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) based on the volume-of-fluid (VOF)-continuum surface force (CSF) method...
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...

(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...
Applications of ancestry estimation in cattle population genetics
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
Accounting for ancestry and cryptic population structure is important in population genetic data analysis. The estimation of ancestry can help elucidate the effects of admixture or stratification on allele and genotype ...
Derivation of walk-in cooler and freezer Performance Standard equations as they pertain to the ANSI/AHRI Standard 1250 and 1251
(University of Missouri--Kansas City, 2012)
The ANSI/AHRI (American National Standard Institute (ANSI)/ Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI).) Standard 1250/1251 Performance Rating of Walk-In Coolers and Freezers strives to standardize ...
