Postembryonic skeletal ontogeny of the pelobatid frog Scaphiopus intermontanus is described based on a developmental series of cleared-and-stained, whole-mount specimens. The focus is on laboratory-reared individuals fed a herbivorous diet as larvae. Although there is variation in the timing of ossification of individual skeletal elements relative to(More)

We provide a detailed description of the larval morphology of the Great Basin spadefoot toad (Scaphiopus intermontanus), a species with documented morphological variability in larval structures associated with feeding. We based our findings on laboratory-raised individuals fed a herbivorous diet. We characterized the morphology of the prometamorphic larva(More)

The role played by European sociology in ending capital punishment seems to me exemplary, and I have no doubt but that basic morality should lead sociologists into(More)
The principle of and experience in continuous and instantaneous monitoring of shell temperature level for a 3000 ton/day preheater kiln is described. The system primarily consists of a high-speed infrared scanner which measures the kiln shell temperature, a computer which transforms and analyzes the temperature measurements, and a graphical display(More)
