Demographic Analysis Of A Northern Utah Black-Tailed Jackrabbit Population, Jack E. Gross May 1967

Demographic Analysis Of A Northern Utah Black-Tailed Jackrabbit Population, Jack E. Gross

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this report is to describe (1) the demographic pattern of a black-tailed jackrabbit (Lopus californicus) population in 450-square-mile Curlow Valley, northern Utah and southern Idaho, during the period April, 1962 through March, 1965; and (2) the methodology developed to obtain the data on which the description is based. The research discussed here occupied the first 3 years of a projected, long-range study of the population ecology of the species in this area with special attention to the mechanics and causes of short-term fluctuations.


Irrigation Water Values In Cache County, Utah, Marlyn Fife May 1967

Irrigation Water Values In Cache County, Utah, Marlyn Fife

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

In Utah all water, both on or below the ground surface, is considered public property. The right to use water is obtained by fellowing certain subsiding procedures of appropriation through the office of the State Engineer. Any right to the use of water may be changed to some other beneficial use with the approval of the State Engineer; however, there must be no interference with other rights, unless proper compensation has been made.

Agriculture still uses most of the available water in Utah; However, farmers' needs for water are not exactly the same. When allocation per acre is the same ...


A Study Of The Off-Farm Agriculture Occupations Of Millard, Beaver, Iron, And Washington Counties In Utah, To Determine Educational Needs, Thales C. Brown May 1967

A Study Of The Off-Farm Agriculture Occupations Of Millard, Beaver, Iron, And Washington Counties In Utah, To Determine Educational Needs, Thales C. Brown

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The objectives of this study were to gather information concerning the off-farm agricultural occupations of Millard, Beaver, Iron and Washington Couties.

A list was made of present and anticipated number of employees in these occupations with the numbers involved in full-time, part-time, and female work.

Occupations with similar backgrounds were clustered into four main areas. These were further classified into individual jobs.

Comments were made concerning the competencies needed for entry and satisfactory performance in these occupations.

Some of the characteristics of these occupations as to salary, required experience, labor laws and education requirements were reported.

An attempt was made ...


An Evaluation Of Control On The Pocket Gopher, Thomomys Talpoides, On The Cache National Forest, Utah, Voit B. Richens May 1967

An Evaluation Of Control On The Pocket Gopher, Thomomys Talpoides, On The Cache National Forest, Utah, Voit B. Richens

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The Monte Cristo area of the Cache National Forest has consistently supported a heavy pocket gopher infestation for many years. In 1957, and several succeeding years, infested range was treated with poisoned grain for pocket gopher control. Nearby range (also infested) was no t treated. Thus, gopher- control l ed range became available for comparative study, with period s of successive annual control of 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 years. Within each of these areas (designated as treatments) were located two study s ites in 1961 and three in 1962. Within each study site were three sample areas, and ...


Quantitative Analyses Of Perennial Atriplex-Dominated Vegetation Of Southeastern Utah, Teja Singh May 1967

Quantitative Analyses Of Perennial Atriplex-Dominated Vegetation Of Southeastern Utah, Teja Singh

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

An Intensive study of the applicability of mathematical methodology to the ordination and classification of desert vegetation was undertaken during 1962, 1963 and 1964. The study area, forming part of the shad-scale zone vegetation and covering 13.5 square miles, is situated near Cisco in Grand County, southeastern Utah. Broad pediments originating from the nearby Book Cliffs are the main landform.

Geologically, the area was subjected to many cycles of erosion. The pediment and the quaternary remnants thin out with increasing distance from the Book Cliffs. The alluvial fan deposits are readily recognizable at three distinct levels. Mancos shale, a ...


Factors Influencing Meat Consumption In The Home, Cache And Box Elder Counties, Utah, 1965-1966, William Duane Evans May 1967

Factors Influencing Meat Consumption In The Home, Cache And Box Elder Counties, Utah, 1965-1966, William Duane Evans

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Meat is important in the American diet. Money spent for meat ranks as the largest single item in the family food dollar. Various studies indicate that the proportion of the food dollar spent for meat ranges from 25 to 30 percent. Such foods as dairy products and fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables calculated as separate groups account for a smaller single percentage than meat. Dairy products, the one of next importance to meat, account for approximately 18 percent of the consumer's food dollar.


Seasonal, Diurnal And Species Variation In Forage Moisture Content In Relation To Site On Mountain Summer Range Of Northern Utah, Chaudhry Mohammad Sharif May 1967

Seasonal, Diurnal And Species Variation In Forage Moisture Content In Relation To Site On Mountain Summer Range Of Northern Utah, Chaudhry Mohammad Sharif

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Practical assessments of range production and utilization are based on forage weight estimates. In preparing these estimates moisture content in green vegetation offers some problems. The moisture component is not likely to be constant for a given species. Diurnal, seasonal and site variability have been well illustrated for agronomic and tree species (Salisbury, 1848; Jenkins, 1879; Miller, 1917; Pearson, 1924; Watkins, 1940; Parker, 1951; Ackley, 1954; Werner, 1954; Zohary and Orshan, 1956; Slatyer, 1959; Kozlowaki, 1965 and Jame son, 1966). Since variability is also likely for range plants, computations made on green weights are apt to be fallacious. It is ...
