"The Impulse and physics of movement"
"Evaluation of high-dose estrogen and high-dose estrogen plus methyltestosterone treatment on cognitive task performance in postmenopausal women"
(S Karger AG (Basel, Switzerland), 2002)
Objectives: To investigate the cognitive effects of high-dose oral estrogen alone or in combination with oral methyltestosterone in postmenopausal women. Methods: Participants were tested with a randomized, double-blind ...
"Effects of timber harvest on forest lepidoptera: community, guild, and species responses"
(Ecological Society of America, 2002)
Abstract. Two pressing questions for forestry and conservation biology are whether periodic logging in forest ecosystems significantly changes biodiversity and whether the changes can be mitigated through appropriate harvest ...
"Species traits as predictors of lepidopteran composition in restored and remnant tallgrass prairies"
(Ecological Society of America, 2006)
Restoration ecologists are increasingly turning to the development of trait-filter models, which predict how evolved traits limit species membership within assemblages depending on existing abiotic or biotic constraints, ...
"Intraspecific aggregation decreases local species diversity of arthropods"
(Ecological Society of America, 2003)
Abstract. The aggregation model of species coexistence predicts that insect species diversity within a community is maintained by intraspecific aggregation among resource patches. An untested corollary of this prediction ...
"Discovering homelessness: teaching, scholarship, and the real world"
Annual Stalnaker Lecture Series at Drake University, focuses on the outcome of that grant, as well as the experiences both Wright and his students shared in searching out those in the Des Moines community who lived in ...
"The effect of income choice on bias in policy decisions made using cost-benefit analyses"
(Elsevier Science Incorporated, 2004-12-01)
Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) is often used in policy decisions to determine the economic value of various choices. Although the effects of income disparity are well accepted, one of the reasons for the success of this ...
"On the Taketa bound for normally monomial p-groups of maximal class"
(Elsevier Science, 2004-07-15)
A longstanding problem in the representation theory of finite solvable groups, sometimes called the Taketa problem, is to find strong bounds for the derived length dl(G) in terms of the number |cd(G)| of irreducible character ...
"Close-coupling and distorted-wave calculations for electron-impact excitation of the (5p56p) states of xenon"
(American Physical Society, 2004-06)
We report on a series of calculations for electron impact-excitation of the (5p^5)6p states in xenon from the ground state (5p^6)^1S_0. As in previous calculations for other noble-gas targets, we find strong evidence of ...
"Velocity Dispersion and Black Hole Mass in Seyfert 1 Galaxies"
Bulge stellar velocity dispersions, sigma, in Seyfert 1 galaxies are combined with the M_bh -- sigma relation to validate reverberation mapping as a means of determining nuclear black hole masses. Seyfert galaxies follow ...
