A Review Of The Classification Of The Genus Hydrastis (Ranunculaceae), Carl S. Keener Dec 1993

A Review Of The Classification Of The Genus Hydrastis (Ranunculaceae), Carl S. Keener

Aliso: A Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Botany

The genus Hydrastis has been variously classified as a monotypic taxon in the Ranunculaceae, the Berberidaceae, the Glaucidiaceae, or its own monogeneric family, the Hydrastidaceae. The objectives of this paper were 1) to review the previous classifications of Hydrastis and 2) to critique a recent paper by Tobe and Keating reevaluating the classification of the genus based on comparative morphological and anatomical studies. One conclusion of this review was that Tobe and Keating overlooked certain important papers which might have substantially altered their conclusions, viz., that Hydrastis is sufficiently distinct from the other genera of the Ranunculaceae to warrant a ...


Wood Anatomy And Relationships Of Santalaceae I. Acanthosyris, Jodina, And Myoschilos, Carlos Alejandro Norverto Dec 1993

Wood Anatomy And Relationships Of Santalaceae I. Acanthosyris, Jodina, And Myoschilos, Carlos Alejandro Norverto

Aliso: A Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Botany

Study of the wood of Acanthosyris, Jodina, and Myoschilos confirmed a close relationship between Santalaceae and Olacaceae. Features important for defining the three genera and for determining relationships between them and with Schoepfia, which belongs to Olacaceae, are reported for the first time: vestured vessel walls, unilaterally compound pits, perforated ray cells, and druses.


Laboulbeniales On Semiaquatic Heteroptera. Vi. The Genus Tavaresiella, Richard K. Benjamin Dec 1993

Laboulbeniales On Semiaquatic Heteroptera. Vi. The Genus Tavaresiella, Richard K. Benjamin

Aliso: A Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Botany

Majewski's original circumscriptions of Tavaresiella (Laboulbeniales; Laboulbeniaceae; Stigmatomycetinae) and its type species, T. hebri, were emended in this study of the genus. In addition, three new species were described, T. majewskii, T. polhemi, and T. santamariae. These, like the type species, occurred on true bugs of the family Hebridae (Heteroptera). A key to the species was provided, and ali were described and illustrated with line drawings and photographs. Aspects of ascomatic structure and development were summarized, and the genus was compared with other genera of the subtribe having similar characteristics.


A Phytochemical Study Of Selected Podostemaceae, Virginia Romo Contreras, Ron Scogin, C. Thomas Philbrick, Alejandro Novelo R. Dec 1993

A Phytochemical Study Of Selected Podostemaceae, Virginia Romo Contreras, Ron Scogin, C. Thomas Philbrick, Alejandro Novelo R.

Aliso: A Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Botany

Podostemum ceratophyllum contains γ-mangostin and its 6-glucoside. The aglycone is also present in Marathrum, Oserya, and Vanroyenella, but is absent from Tristicha. Anthocyanins were identified from all genera, but no additional fiavonoids were detected. Condensed and hydrolyzable tannins, iridoids, cyanogenic glycosides, and alkaloids were lacking in all Podostemaceae examined. Phytochemical constituents do not clarify the uncertain systematic affinity ofPodostemaceae, but emphasize the generally accepted taxonomic isolation of this family.


Wood Anatomy Of Sabiaceae (S.L.), Sherwin Carlquist, Peter L. Morrell, Steven R. Manchester Dec 1993

Wood Anatomy Of Sabiaceae (S.L.), Sherwin Carlquist, Peter L. Morrell, Steven R. Manchester

Aliso: A Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Botany

Quantitative and qualitative data were offered for 30 taxa of Meliosma and one species each of Ophiocaryon and Sabia; qualitative data were available for additional species of Meliosma and Sabia. For a small family restricted to mesic sites, Sabiaceae had a wide range of wood anatomical expressions (e.g., long scalariform to simple perforation plates; heterocellular to homocellular multiseriate rays; tracheids, fiber-tracheids, or libriform fibers as imperforate tracheary elements; presence or absence of silica bodies and calcium oxalate crystals in rays). Growth ring type, vessel diameter, vessel density, and vessel element length were sensitively related to ecology, but to degree ...

Evolutionary Perspectives On Animalivory, Patricia W. Freeman Dec 1993

Evolutionary Perspectives On Animalivory, Patricia W. Freeman

Mammalogy Papers: University of Nebraska State Museum

Derived from insectivorous ancestors, microchiropteran bats have diversified into a remarkable array of feeding habits. Cranial and dental characteristics mirror this diversity. Insectivorous predators of hard-shelled prey have thicker jaws, well-developed cranial crests, fewer but larger teeth, longer canines and abbreviated M3s than species that take soft items. Carnivorous bats have more elongate skulls, larger brain volumes and larger pinnae, lengthened metastylar ridges, and larger protoconids compared to insectivores. Animalivorous species have large ectoloph areas compared to frugivorous and nectarivorous species, but animalivores and frugivores have large tooth areas relative to palatal area compared to nectarivores. Frugivores sacrifice ectoloph for ...

Discounting Property Values At Death, Neil E. Harl Dec 1993

Discounting Property Values At Death, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

The idea that property values can be discounted at death for a minority interest and for non-marketability is well established. Although discounting cannot be applied in addition to any reduction in value from special use valuation of land, discounting of corporate stock may produce a lower stock value than claiming special use valuation on the corporation -owned land.

What Will Happen To Production Traits If We Select For Carcass Traits?, Tom Field Dec 1993

What Will Happen To Production Traits If We Select For Carcass Traits?, Tom Field

Range Beef Cow Symposium

Cow-calf producers find themselves in the unique position of managing an enterprise where profitability is dependent on their ability to hit two targets, the first being the complex of maternal traits as defined by the environmental and management constraints of their individual farm and ranch. The second target is outlined by the demands of the marketplace.

What is the feasibility of accomplishing these two goals within the context of improving profitability by lowering appropriate production costs while avoiding the discounts inherent in commodity pricing schemes? The answer to this question is dependent on a variety of factors, including: the specific ...


The Meat Consumer Today - Promotion: What's New With The Consumer?, Pat Swan Dec 1993

The Meat Consumer Today - Promotion: What's New With The Consumer?, Pat Swan

Range Beef Cow Symposium

Promotion has been defined as "telling and selling" the customer. The overriding goal today, however, is understanding that customer. By determining consumers' needs and desires, one can then positively position products in a creative, relevant and positive way. The meat industry is constantly seeking to gauge both consumer attitudes and, importantly, their behaviors. Both are necessary components of a sound marketing plan.


The Meat Consumer Today - Price: Is It Time For A New Strategy?, Pat Swan Dec 1993

The Meat Consumer Today - Price: Is It Time For A New Strategy?, Pat Swan

Range Beef Cow Symposium

When determining the purchasing behavior of today's consumer, one should realize that price is but one factor in the buying decision. This tenet applies to meat producers, packers, and retailers alike, many of whom are beginning to look at the definition of price in a different way. There are, in fact, two ways of looking at price: from the "inside out" and the "outside in". When pricing is determined by the "inside out" method, the emphasis is on recovering the initial production costs and the addition to those costs to generate a profit. The "outside in" approach to pricing ...


Optimum Mainstream Crossbreeding System's "Omc Hairpin Brand Bell Curve Strategies" Including Crossbreeding And Composites For Success In The Cow Business, Jim Leachman Dec 1993

Optimum Mainstream Crossbreeding System's "Omc Hairpin Brand Bell Curve Strategies" Including Crossbreeding And Composites For Success In The Cow Business, Jim Leachman

Range Beef Cow Symposium

I. PLANNING the future of your cow outfit should involve an assessment of:

A. PRESENT STATUS: a realistic inventory of where you are in terms of competitive production parameters, including:

1. cost per pound weaned per cow exposed,
2. percentage of cattle meeting carcass yield, grade, and weight specs.

B. PROPER GOALS: informed visions of the direction of a consumer-based market driven industry such as:

1. redefining quality as a uniform product with consistent eating qualities,
2. discounts for products not meeting targets and needs.

C. CORRECT STRATEGIES: the game plans which theoretically and practically have a good probability of ...


Across Breed Expected Progeny Differences (Epd's), James A. Gosey Dec 1993

Across Breed Expected Progeny Differences (Epd's), James A. Gosey

Range Beef Cow Symposium

If commercial beef producers were to abandon crossbreeding, there would be no need to consider Across Breed EPD's. With only one dominant breed such as the dairy industry's Holstein, sire selection would be greatly simplified. Given the diversity of production environments, management systems and market scenarios within which beef is produced, it seems unlikely that a least-cost producer will approach the business without crossbreeding as one of the tools.

As a matter of fact, Across Breed EPD's are just the most recent chapter in an ongoing evaluation of breeds and bulls. Astute commercial producers have been "going ...


Setting Direction And Effective Management Style, Burke Teichert Dec 1993

Setting Direction And Effective Management Style, Burke Teichert

Range Beef Cow Symposium

Management style is a major determinant of effectiveness. Setting direction in turn is an integral part of an effective management style. At Rex Ranch our mission or long term direction is to "maximize long term profit while improving the land, animal and human resources." The redundancy in the mission statement is recognized and intended. If we fail to improve the land, animal and human resources, we will not be competitive or profitable in the long run. So, that part of the statement is to keep us based on correct principles.

A ranch is really a production and marketing system made ...


Composite Breeds - What Does The Research Tell Us?, Keith Gregory, Larry V. Cundiff, R. M. Koch Dec 1993

Composite Breeds - What Does The Research Tell Us?, Keith Gregory, Larry V. Cundiff, R. M. Koch

Range Beef Cow Symposium

Heterosis achieved through continuous crossbreeding can be used to increase weight of calf weaned per cow exposed to breeding by 20%. Comprehensive programs of breed characterization have revealed large differences among breeds for most bioeconomic traits. About 55% of the U.S. beef breeding population involving 93% of the farmers and ranchers who produce beef cattle are in production units of 100 or fewer cows. Optimum crossbreeding systems are not easy to adapt in herds that use fewer than four bulls. Further, fluctuation in breed composition between generations in rotational crossbreeding systems can result in considerable variation among both cows ...


Strategic Alliances: What The Data Say, Chuck Lambert Dec 1993

Strategic Alliances: What The Data Say, Chuck Lambert

Range Beef Cow Symposium

The National Beef Quality Audit determined that about $280 is lost for every fed steer and heifer slaughtered in the U.S. This $7.2 billion annual loss from non-conformities works to the beef industry's disadvantage. The beef industry's segmented industry structure encourages many of the non-conformities. The Strategic Alliances Field Study (SAFS), was designed to determine how much of the $280 could be returned to producers if all segments worked together and shared information. To demonstrate effectiveness of value-based marketing Strategic Alliances brought the various production segments together in a partnership so the reward for optimizing production ...


Effects Of Supplementation On Intake And Utilization On Harvested Forages, David W. Sanson Dec 1993

Effects Of Supplementation On Intake And Utilization On Harvested Forages, David W. Sanson

Range Beef Cow Symposium

A frequent question asked by beef cattle producers is what supplement should be used. Prior to asking this question, it should be determined if a supplement is necessary. To answer this question, the nutrient requirements of the animal to meet the desired production level must be established. Next, it should be determined if current feed resources will meet these needs. It may be possible to shift grazing practices or to adjust feeding levels and meet the requirements. Once it is established that a supplement must be used, then the supplement that will improve the utilization of the base diet should ...


Problems Handling Dystocia, Robert G. Mortimer Dec 1993

Problems Handling Dystocia, Robert G. Mortimer

Range Beef Cow Symposium

The recognition of abnormal calving (dystocia) comes FIRST from a basic understanding of normal calving. From this understanding, the establishment of guidelines for observation of cattle and for intervention will reduce calf losses . In Colorado, as part of a pilot program of the National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS), two-thirds of the costs of disease losses were associated with death loss. From a subset of 73 of the 86 NAHMS herds in studied in 1986-87 in 24,396 births, 4.5% of the calves were lost. Of the 4.5% losses, 34% were attributed to dystocia related losses. In addition ...


Overlooked And Neglected Principles Of Grazing Management, Patrick E. Reese Dec 1993

Overlooked And Neglected Principles Of Grazing Management, Patrick E. Reese

Range Beef Cow Symposium

The more one understands about resources critical to ranching the more likely one is to survive hard times. There are many distractions in the range livestock industry from day to day activities to technology overloads at educational meetings. As you sift through your experiences and observations do you ever ask the question, "What will I teach the next generation of management to improve their chances of success?". Hopefully, the answer is, "the basic fundamentals". New technologies, new words and new strategies do not change fundamental principles of rangeland management.


Estrous Synchronization In Lactating Cows, Doug L. Hixon Dec 1993

Estrous Synchronization In Lactating Cows, Doug L. Hixon

Range Beef Cow Symposium

The objective of any successful synchronization program is to manipulate the estrous cycle of normally cycling females so that a large percentage will exhibit estrus with normal fertility at a pre-determined time. Synchronization programs have typically been most successful with heifers due to a lack of interference from extraneous factors. Since minimum age and weight are the primary prerequisites for a heifer of a particular breed to reach puberty, a nutritional program can be designed to allow the majority of heifers to reach their appropriate target weight by 13-14 months of age. Provided there are no health problems, or extreme ...


Using Ultrasound Technology In Reproduction Management, Douglas D. Zalesky Dec 1993

Using Ultrasound Technology In Reproduction Management, Douglas D. Zalesky

Range Beef Cow Symposium

Reproductive performance in cow-calf operations is one of, if not the most important factor affecting profitability in a herd. Several economic studies have suggested that reproductive traits are 5 to 10 times more important than growth traits and 5 to 20 times more important than carcass traits in determining the net profitability in an operation. Therefore, achieving high levels of reproductive efficiency should be the top or one of the top goals of any cow-calf operation.

Ultrasound technology is by no means a new technology. Its use in live animals was first described in 1950 by J.J. Wild. He ...


Factors Affecting Calving Difficulty, R. A. Bellows Dec 1993

Factors Affecting Calving Difficulty, R. A. Bellows

Range Beef Cow Symposium

Calf deaths resulting from difficult calving (dystocia) cause a major reduction in the net calf crop and income realized by beef producers. Based on 1993 projected figures, a 5% increase in animals available for sale in the U.S. could potentially increase gross receipts by over $1.5 billion annually. These same projection figures also suggest that losses attributed to calf deaths from dystocia alone exceed $750 million annually. Identifying ways to decrease dystocia and the accompanying calf deaths is the subject of this paper.


What Does Biotechnology Have To Offer Beef Cattle Reproduction? Costs And Practical Value, George E. Seidel Jr. Dec 1993

What Does Biotechnology Have To Offer Beef Cattle Reproduction? Costs And Practical Value, George E. Seidel Jr.

Range Beef Cow Symposium

The term "reproductive biotechnology" has different meanings in different circumstances. I will use a broad definition that ranges from estrus synchronization to DNA manipulation. By far the most relevant and important reproductive biotechnology for beef cattle production is artificial insemination. It is shocking that only around 5% of calves of beef cattle breeds in this country are sired via this biotechnology, but I will not discuss artificial insemination further because the methodology, costs, and applications are well known. In my opinion, the second most important reproductive biotechnology is estrous cycle synchronization; I'll not cover this further because there will ...


Bull Power: Productivity And Profitability, Garth W. Boyd Dec 1993

Bull Power: Productivity And Profitability, Garth W. Boyd

Range Beef Cow Symposium

One of the biggest challenges facing cow/calf producers today is cutting their costs of production. One possible strategy for lowering costs is to increase the production efficiency of the cow herd. A key area to focus on is the reproductive function of the beef bull because natural mating accounts for over 95% of the pregnancies achieved each year in the 33.7 million beef cows in the U.S.

It is becoming apparent that perhaps because of increased selection pressure on scrotal circumference, the modern beef bull is more fertile than the bull of yesterday. Yet, according to the ...
