    Salt-rising bread is a kind of leavened bread, which is made light not by the introduction of yeast, as with yeast cakes or by mechanical aeration or by carbon dioxide liberated from chemical compounds, such as baking ...
  • Chemotropism of fungi 

    Fulton, Harry R. (Harry Rascoe), b. 1880 (University of Missouri, 1905)
    The changing of the direction of growth of fungous hyphae is a complex phenomenon in which at least two factors, cytotropism and hyrotropism, are concerned. Since the complete elimination of neither of these factors is ...
  • Conditions modifying the effect of deleterious agents upon the fungi 

    Fitch, Ruby (University of Missouri, 1905)
    Nageli, Dandeno and True and Oglevee have drawn the conclusion that the presence of insoluble substances in toxic solutions reduces the toxicity of such solutions. Since in the work already done along this line, phanerogams ...
  • Cytological studies on the zygospores of Sporodinia grandis 

    Keene, Mary Lucille, 1888- (University of Missouri, 1912)
    In recent years much interest has been aroused in the cytology of the lower fungi, and considerable work has been done upon these forms. While various members of different groups have been studied, the most definite results ...
  • Influence of some external conditions upon infection of hosts with powdery mildews 

    Overholser, E. L. (Earle Long), 1888-1949 (University of Missouri, 1914)
    It has long been observed that one condition or another of the environment is favorable to the perpetuation and spread of fungous diseases. For example, it is very easy to recognize the close relation which exists between ...
  • Influence of various factors, principally transpiration, upon infection of wheat and barley plants by the powdery mildew 

    McGill, Helen Louise (University of Missouri, 1912)
    Erysiphe Graminis is the powdery mildew which grows upon the Gramineae (Grass family). Something like fifty-five species of the family are affected by this fungus. Among these species are the cereals wheat, barley, oats, ...
  • Life histories of two little known parasites of the apple and pear 

    Floyd, B. F. (Bayard F.) (University of Missouri, 1907)
    The Sooty Blotch is a very common fungus upon the fruit of the apple and pear. It was first reported by Schweinitz in 1831 from Pennsylvania. Since then it has been reported from all parts of the United States and Europe. ...
  • The mechanism of seed dispersal in polygonum virginianum 

    Smoot, Wallie Isadore (University of Missouri, 1906)
    The achenes of Polygonum Virginianum Linnaeus have a particularly efficient mode of dispersal. The long two-parted styles are persistent and become lignified during the process of development. If, after maturity, these ...
  • Physiological studies on Monascus 

    Mundy, Emma Bee (University of Missouri, 1914)
    Moldy silage, because of its economic importance, has attracted considerable attention in the last few years. Certain molds, because of their general and frequent occurrence and peculiar characteristics have become of ...
  • A preliminary list of the rusts of Boone County 

    Bennett, J. P. (James Percy), 1886-1975 (University of Missouri, 1913)

  • The process of fertilization in Aspidium and Adiantum 

    Thom, Charles, 1872-1956 (University of Missouri, 1899)
    The investigations of Ikeno, Hirase, Webber, and Shaw have given increased interest and importance to all facts bearing on the process of fertilization in plants. This interest centers on those groups which mark the ...
  • Some experiments on the toxicity of various chemicals to monilia sitophila (Mont.) Sacc. 

    Kunkel, Louis Otto (University of Missouri, 1911)
    The influence of the mineral nutrients upon growth has been the subject of much investigation. It has been found that certain of these are absolutely necessary to all life. Nevertheless, most, if not all, of the chemical ...
  • Temperature as a factor modifying the toxic action of certain chemicals on the germination and development of a few fungi 

    Brooks, Charles (University of Missouri, 1905)
    The purpose of the experiments, the results of which are presented in this paper, was to determine what might be the modifying effect of temperature on the toxic properties of certain chemicals as shown by the effect of ...
