Bison had a smaller (P = .02) ruminoreticular volume, faster liquid dilution rates, and faster liquid turnover times than cattle, and possessed a mixed type A-type B population that was characterized by Ophryoscolex spp.
The functional significance of the microbial biomass in organic and conventionally managed soils
In order to achieve sustainability in managed ecosystems we must understand management impacts on soil processes and clarify the regulatory role of the microbial community on these processes. Crop
Predation, Reproduction, and Impact of Phytoseiid Mites (Acari: Phytoseiidae) on Cyclamen Mite (Acari: Tarsonemidae) on Strawberry
TLDR
Abilities of phytoseiid mites to attack, reproduce, and control cyclamen mite, Phy- tonenus pallidus (Banks), on strawberry were assessed and differences in life histories may dictate that unique methods of release are needed for N. fallacis versus N. Cucumeris.
Population Growth of Pratylenchus penetrans on Winter Cover Crops Grown in the Pacific Northwest.
