Cattle Diets in a Ponderosa Pine Forest in the Northern Black Hills

Daniel W. Uresk, Wayne W. Paintner
1985 Journal of range management  
A cattle diet study was conducted in the northern Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming. Forty-eight plants were identified in cattle fecal material. Grasses in the feces averaged 549& forbs 17%, and shrubs-trees 28% over the grazing season. Sedges (Curex spp.) and wheatgrass (Agropyron spp.) were the most abundant plants found in the feces throughout the season. Bur oak (Quercus macrocarpa), ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa), and Oregon grape (Berberis repens) were common in the diet. Shrubs

Biostatistics: A Foundation for Analysis in the Health Sciences. 2nd Edition

Susan Chinn, Wayne W. Daniel
1979 Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series C: Applied Statistics  
Book Reviews 533 seem old-fashioned. There was little use of graphical displays, even though this would have aided comprehension in, say, regression, and the graphs that were presented also had a dated feel about them. I also felt that navigation about the book could have been improved if topics had been highlighted better, so that one knew when was reading a discussion of solutions of previous exercises and when new concepts were being introduced. Although students would work sequentially

Although the book is entitled a self-instruction manual, and thus is intended for the lone student, sections of it would be ideal for a one semester course on evidence-based medicine, and the exercises would be a boon to the instructor.

Uplift, thermal unrest and magma intrusion at Yellowstone caldera

Charles W. Wicks, Wayne Thatcher, Daniel Dzurisin, Jerry Svarc
2006 Nature  
The Yellowstone caldera, in the western United States, formed ~640,000 years ago when an explosive eruption ejected ~1,000 km 3 of material 1 . It is the youngest of a series of large calderas that formed during sequential cataclysmic eruptions that began ~16 Myr ago in eastern Oregon and northern Nevada. The Yellowstone caldera was largely buried by rhyolite lava flows during eruptions that occurred from ~150,000 to ~70,000 years ago 1 . Since the last eruption, Yellowstone has remained

Here we present observations of a new mode of surface deformation in Yellowstone, based on radar interferometry observations from the European Space Agency ERS-2 satellite. We infer that the observed pattern of uplift and subsidence results from variations in the movement of molten basalt into and out of the Yellowstone volcanic system.

Assessment and treatment of pica and destruction of holiday decorations

Daniel R. Mitteer, Patrick W. Romani, Brian D. Greer, Wayne W. Fisher
2015 Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis  
Problem behavior exhibited by individuals with autism can be disruptive to family traditions, such as decorating for the holidays. We present data for a 6-year-old girl who engaged in automatically reinforced pica and property destruction of holiday decorations. Treatment was evaluated within an ABCDCD reversal design. During baseline Phases A and B, we observed elevated rates of problem behavior. We implemented differential reinforcement of alternative behavior in Phase C to teach a response

In Phase D, we added a facial screen to the differential-reinforcement procedures, which resulted in increases in toy play and decreases in problem behavior. Findings are discussed in terms of how interventions for problem behavior can promote alternative behavior while facilitating household activities and traditions.

Gene expression shifts in yellow-bellied marmots prior to natal dispersal

Tiffany C Armenta, Steve W Cole, Daniel H Geschwind, Daniel T Blumstein, Robert K Wayne
2018 Behavioral Ecology  
The causes and consequences of vertebrate natal dispersal have been studied extensively, yet little is known about the molecular mechanisms involved. We used RNA-seq to quantify transcriptomic gene expression in blood of wild yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota flaviventer) prior to dispersing from or remaining philopatric to their natal colony. We tested 3 predictions. First, we hypothesized dispersers and residents will differentially express genes and gene networks since dispersal is

Finally, in dispersing individuals, we predicted differentially expressed genes would change as a function of sampling date relative to dispersal date. We detected 150 differentially expressed genes, including genes that have critical roles in lipid metabolism and antigen defense. Gene network analysis revealed a module of 126 coexpressed genes associated with dispersal that was enriched for extracellular immune function. Of the dispersal-associated genes, 22 altered expression as a function of days until dispersal, suggesting that dispersal-associated genes do not initiate transcription on the same time scale. Our results provide novel insights into the fundamental molecular changes required for dispersal and suggest evolutionary conservation of functional pathways during this behavioral process.
