Free-ranging cattle water consumption in southcentral New Mexico
Abstract Water-drinking behavior of 67 free-ranging protein supplemented and nonsupplemented beef cattle was examined between May 23 and 16 July 1986, in southcentral New Mexico. The lactating andExpand
Distance traveled by free-ranging supplemented and non-supplemented lactating and non-lactating cows
Abstract Daily travel of protein supplemented and non-supplemented lactating and non-lactating mature (>4 years of age) Santa Gertrudis X Hereford and Hereford X Santa Gertrudis crossbred cows wasExpand
Application of multi-way data analysis on excitation-emission spectra for plant identification.
The ability to distinguish among diets fed to Damascus goats using excitation-emission luminescence spectra was investigated. These diets consisted of Medicago sativa L. (alfalfa), Trifolium spp.Expand
Photoluminescent Distinction among Plant Life Forms Using Phosphate Buffered Saline Extract Solutions
Photoluminescence of plant extract solutions has been investigated for discrimination of plant life forms (grasses, forbs, and shrubs) using principal component analysis (PCA). Clippings from each ofExpand
Differentiating Among Plant Spectra by Combining pH Dependent Photoluminescence Spectroscopy with Multi-Way Principal Component Analysis (MPCA)
Photoluminescence spectroscopic probes offer the potential for differentiation among plant species in real-time. Spectral emission signatures (excitation at 365 nm) from three different pH (2.2, 7.5Expand
Impact of filter paper on fluorescence measurements of buffered saline filtrates.
Fluorescent contaminants have been observed when stock solutions of phosphate buffered saline solutions at each of three pH values (2.2, 7.5, and 12.5) are analyzed after passing through commerciallyExpand
Use of Fluorometry to Differentiate Among Clipped Species in the Genera Astragalus, Oxytropis, and Pleuraphis
Abstract A rapid and reproducible method to determine botanical composition of forage is an ecological and economic goal for range animal ecologists. Multidimensional fluorometry previouslyExpand
