The isotope geochronology of isochronously deposited Cambrian strata from different tectonostratigraphic zones of the Himalaya confirms new stratigraphic, sedimentological, and faunal evidence indicating that the Himalaya was a single continental margin prior to collision of India with Asia. Lesser, Greater, and Tethyan Himalaya represent proximal to distal(More)
Limited information is available on digestibility of nutrients in various practical ingredients used in diets for commercially important finfish species, such as hybrid striped bass. This information is especially needed for sunshine bass, Morone chrysops 3 M. saxatilis, to improve least-cost diet formulations and to allow effective substitution of(More)
This article presents the foundations of A-GSBT (Axiomatic-General Systems Behavioral Theory) by providing a clear logical definition of general system. Such a definition is critical for devising mathematical models for predicting results in behavioral systems. The purpose of A-GSBT is to provide an Options Set to construct a theory with predictive(More)
—A 391-d feeding trial was conducted with caged juvenile (mean weight1⁄4 36.2 g, SD1⁄4 8.04 g) sunshine bass (female white bass Morone chrysops3male striped bass M. saxatilis) to evaluate growth, feed conversion, protein efficiency ratio, body composition, and fillet composition resulting from diets with decreasing levels of fish meal (FM; 30, 20, 10, and(More)
Map & Analyze Patterns & Structures Across Time (MAPSAT) is a new set of mapping tools that are appropriate for analyses of system dynamics and structure in education. MAPSAT consists of two complementary methodologies: Analysis of Patterns in Time (APT) and Analysis of Patterns in Configuration (APC). In APT, a researcher creates temporal maps by observing(More)
Many people want to improve education. So do we. Many researchers argue that such change must be systemic, since attempts at piecemeal change have made little difference in our current education systems, which still operate largely as they have in the past. The major question is: What should we change in the current education system, and how do we know it(More)
Shell-on tails of 70 juvenile Australian red claw crayfish, Cherax quadricarinatus, were separately packaged in seven sealed plastic freezer bags (10 in each) and stored on ice (0°C) for 0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 10, and 14 days. At the end of each storage period, raw muscle homogenate from five tails (pooled) were analyzed for lipid peroxidation, proteolysis(More)
Small (0.7 g) juvenile red claw, Cherax quadricarinatus, were stocked in earthen ponds (0.04 ha) in Kentucky and grown for 86 days so that measures of growth, survival, processing characteristics, and proximate composition of tail muscle in male and female Australian red claw crayfish could be obtained. A commercial marine shrimp was fed to all red in two(More)
