Tissue displacement of various body surfaces and the auditory midbrain sensitivities to sound were measured in Atelopus species with or without a tympanic middle ear ("eared" and "earless", respectively). Tissue displacement (vibration) of body regions was measured by laser Doppler vibrometer. The body wall directly overlying the lung is most dramatically(More)
16. Abstract This study explores the application of mileage-based user fees, or vehicle-miles traveled (VMT) fees, as an alternative to the fuel tax in rural and small urban areas. The purpose of the study is to identify the issues associated with implementation of a potential new transportation funding system so that public and political concerns in rural(More)
Social communication in anuran amphibians (frogs and toads) is mediated predominantly by acoustic signals. Unlike most anurans, the Panamanian golden frog, Atelopus zeteki, lacks a standard tympanic middle ear and appears to have augmented its communicatory repertoire to include rotational limb motions as visual signals, referred to here as semaphores. The(More)
16. Abstract Climate change and variability will have significant impacts on the future mobility of the population in this country. Previous research has found that the transportation sector is not considering adaptation as a solution to these potential impacts. Further, results from a current Southwest Region University Transportation Center (SWUTC)(More)
As the previous chapters have demonstrated, there is benefit to including long-term climate considerations in the development of transportation systems. In fact, climate factors are likely to affect decisions in every phase of the transportation management process: from long-range planning and investment; through project design and construction; to(More)
Natural systems and society share a symbiotic relationship with each affecting the health and welfare of the other. More importantly, society's impacts on natural systems can lead to negative side effects on society such as increased respiratory illness from air pollution, contaminated drinking water from industrial runoff, and increased skin cancer risk(More)

One of the most important functions of university libraries and librarians is to help improve the information literacy of its patrons, especially students. The principal means of doing so has traditionally been in-person library instruction by librarians (and sometimes other library staff or graduate students). The University of Maryland Libraries have long(More)
