Increasing the Productivity of Eucalypt Forests in New South Wales
SUMMARY The past and present yields of typical eucalypt forests in New South Wales are in the order of 3 to 40 cubic feet per acre; but the potential productivity is often in excess of 100 cubic feet
Influence of Hemorrhage on Adrenal Secretion, Blood Glucose and Serum Insulin in the Awake Pig
TLDR
Increase in blood glucose and epinephrine secretion rate following hemorrhage were found to be significantly dependent upon the rate of initial hemorrhage, and Cortisol secretion was found to rise significantly during andFollowing hemorrhage in both rapidly and slowly bled animals.
Hemorrhage as a stimulus to adrenal epinephrine secretion.
