  1. COMPUTER SOFTWARE FOR FORECASTING INSECT PEST POPULATION PROBLEMS

    SBC: Applied Biomathematics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN OBJECTIVE METHODOLOGY FOR FORECASTING INSECT PEST POPULATION ABUNDANCES AND TO IMPLEMENT THIS METHODOLOGY AS AN INTERACTIVE COMPUTER SOFTWARE PACKAGE. FOR AGRICULTURAL AND FOREST INSECT PESTS WE CAN GENERALLY OBTAIN ESTIMATES OF THEIR POPULATION ABUNDANCE OVER TIME. THESE DATA ARE USUALLY COLLECTED BY DIRECT SAMPLING, PHEROMONE TRAPS, OR ESTIMATES BASED ON DAMAG ...

  2. REMEDIATION OF PESTICIDE-CONTAMINATED SOIL BY SOIL WASHING/BIOSLURRY TREATMENT

    SBC: Biotrol Inc            Topic: N/A

    PRODUCTION, TRANSPORT, AND APPLICATION OF PESTICIDES AND PESTICIDE CONCENTRATES OFTEN RESULT IN SOIL CONTAMINATION. SORPTION TO SOIL PARTICULATE MATTER AND TOXICITY TO MICROORGANISMS FURTHER RESULT IN THE EVIRONMENTAL PERSISTENCE OF THESE COMPOUNDS; THUS, THE SOILS ARE NOT READILY REMEDIATED BY TYPICAL SOLID PHASE BIOTREATMENT (E.G. LAND FARMING). NO CURRENTLY EXISTING BIOREMEDIATION STRATEGIES AR ...

  5. MODEL SYSTEMS FOR SOIL-BORNE INSECT BIOCONTROL

    SBC: Ecoscience Laboratorytories            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL SEEK TO IDENTIFY ENTOMOPATHOGENIC ORGANISMS THAT ARE EFFECTIVE IN CONTROLLING INFESTATIONS OF SOIL-BORNE INSECT PESTS AND TO PROVIDE DELIVERY SYSTEMS WHICH ENSURE THEIR FIELD EFFICACY. ECOSCIENCE WILL BUILD ONPREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WITH CORN ROOTWORM (CRW) AS A MODEL SOILPEST FOR THESE STUDIES, AMPLIFYING OUR COLLECTION OF ORGANISMS PATHOGENIC TO CRW, WITH ISOLATES CAPABLE OF SUSTAI ...

  8. DETECTION OF HEAVY METALS IN WATER

    SBC: Hybrivet Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    TOXIC HEAVY METALS, SUCH AS LEAD AND CADMIUM, ARE PREVALENT IN THE ENVIRONMENT DUE TO THEIR HIGH INDUSTRIAL USE. THESE TOXIC METALS ARE CUMULATIVE POISONS AND ARE TOXIC EVEN AT LOW DOSES, CAUSING EITHER CHRONIC OR ACUTE TOXICITY WITH PRIMARILY HEPATOTOXIC, NEPHROTOXIC OR NEUROTOXIC EFFECTS. THERE ARE NO USEFUL RAPID SCREENING TESTS TO DETECT CADMIUM IN WATER OR ON SURFACES. THE TESTS AVAILABLE FOR ...

  9. MAXIMIZING SHOOT FORMING EFFICIENCY OF POPULUS USING IN VITRO MICRO-CROSS SECTIONS

    SBC: Minn Vitro Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MICRO-CROSS SECTION (MCS) IS A NEW METHOD FOR MICROPROPAGATION (TISSUE CULTURE) OF SELECTED PLANTS WHICH SHOULD SIMULTANEOUSLY PROVIDE A DRAMATIC PER UNIT COST REDUCTION AND A LARGE INCREASE IN PLANT AVAILABILITY. BECAUSE OF A PROJECTED SEVERE SHORTFALL OF NATURALLY OCCURRING ASPEN FOR WOOD PRODUCTS INDUSTRIES WE HAVE SELECTED 2 ASPEN AND 4 HYBRID ASPEN GENOTYPES TO USE IN THE EVALUATION OF THIS T ...

  10. INTEGRATION OF FOREST GROWTH AND YIELD PREDICTION WITH FOREST INVENTORY SYSTEMS

    SBC: Pro-west And Associates            Topic: N/A

    NUMEROUS LAND MANAGERS REQUIRE ACCURATE AND TIMELY INFORMATION ON LOCAL AND REGIONAL FOREST RESOURCE SUPPLY. HISTORICALLY, LITTLE WORK HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF FOREST GROWTH AND YIELD MODELS WHICH CAN BE BOTH DEVELOPED AND IMPLEMENTED FORM EXISTING INVENTORY DATA. FURTHER, EFFORTS TO INTEGRATE THE MODELS INTO THE DATA BASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS OF LOCAL PUBLIC AGENCIES HAVE BEEN WEAK AN ...
