Composting and Evaluating a Pulp and Paper Sludge for Use as a Soil Amendment/Mulch
Composting could be used in the pulp and paper industry to treat primary sludges as an alternative to landfilling. The objective of this project was to compost and evaluate a pulp and paper sludgeExpand
Plant Preservative Mixture ™ Can Affect Shoot Regeneration from Leaf Explants of Chrysanthemum, European Birch, and Rhododendron
Plant Preservative Mixture (PPM), a relatively new, broad-spectrum preservative and biocide for use in plant tissue culture, was evaluated as an alternative to the use of conventional antibiotics andExpand
Wood ash as an amendment in municipal sludge and yard waste composting processes
Wood ash from a wood-fired, electrical generating plant was examined as a potential amendment in municipal biosolids and yard waste composting applications. The rate of composting and the finalExpand
Pre-conditioning rhododendron and chrysanthemum leaf explants affects transient beta -glucuronidase expression after biolistic particle bombardment
Biolistic particle bombardment is used to transfer desirable genes into difficult to transform plants, but research is lacking on factors that can affect transformation success. This study wasExpand
Stem hypoxia and root respiration of flooded maple and birch seedlings
Some researchers have attributed flood tolerance of woody plants to air entering the shoot through stems, leaves, or lenticels and diffusing to the roots to sustain aerobie respiration. The purposeExpand
Cytokinins, donor plants and time in culture affect shoot regenerative capacity of American elm leaves
Cytokinins, donor plants and their time in vitro as well as basal media were investigated for their influence on shoot regenerative capacity of American elm (Ulmus americana L.) leaves. LeavesExpand
Use of grafting to prevent Hypsipyla grandella (Zeller) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) damage to new world Meliaceae species.
The susceptible species Cedrela odorata and Swietenia macrophylla to attack by Hypsipyla grandella (Zeller) larvae were grafted onto the resistant species Khaya senegalensis and Toona ciliata.Expand
