A preliminary report of Acarina that are parasitic on Orthoptera in northern Michigan by Victor David Borga( Book )

1 edition published in 1950 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"My interest in this problem was first aroused during the summer of 1940. Not only did the people of Northern Michigan suffer through the greatest epidemic of polio on record up until that time, but the people in the rural areas of this farming peninsula were plagued by huge numbers of grasshoppers throughout the summer. I was first awakened to the possibility that there was some relationship between these two pestilences when I discovered that many of the grasshoppers were dying from a disease which in some ways resembled polio. Due to my being pressed by circumstance, I was forced to neglect, but not forget, my interest in this problem. During the summer of 1949, the people of this area were again subjugated to this two-fold attack. the polio epidemic struck all age groups with such viciousness that all past epidemics were made to appear small in comparison. The damage to crops, which was caused by grasshoppers, was by far the greatest in the history of Upper Peninsula for the past 25 years. While collecting specimens for a course in Field Zoology during June of 1949, it was brought to my attention that several of the grasshoppers which we had captured were parasitized by very small, red, mites. this event brought to my mind the diseased grasshopper problems of earlier years, and this time the way was open for me to do some research with the problem."--Introduction
The Simuliidae of Marquette County by Gordon D Gill( Book )

1 edition published in 1950 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In the order Diptera there are more than 80,000 species, many of which are medically important to man. The family Simuliidae is in the suborder Nemocera, which contains many other flies well known as pests of man. In spite of this, these insects, along with most of the Diptera, tend to receive less attention from beginning students of entomology than do the more robust and showy forms of the Hexapoda. A casual inspection of most insect collections will usually bear this out. It has certainly been true at the Northern Michigan College of Education. [...] My studies began in February of 1949. Until the flies began to make their appearance in the spring, I was concerned chiefly with the gathering of references. Throughout the spring and summer I collected specimens and made field observations. During the winter of 1949-1950, I classified the specimens and organized the results of the study."--Preface
Winter food of ruffed grouse by Charles W Pearson( Book )

1 edition published in 1954 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Ruffed grouse have remained Michigan's number one game bird, despite our severe winters which modify their food supply. Probably the most obvious factor affecting abundance is this food supply--an ample supply for good health at all seasons of the year. This is an investigation of the feeding habits of Bonasa umbellus during the winter months in Upper Michigan. Aspects such as: extent of diet, preferred diet, and the relative food content of items of this diet have been stressed."--Preface
Finnish anthropological study by Melvin Holli( Book )

1 edition published in 1955 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Finnish anthropological study is a study of 102 Northern Michigan College students of Finnish extraction. An examination of their mother's maiden names and language used in the home indicates an incidence of in-marriage approximating 80% in the Finnish ethnic group
The clasping reflex of frogs and toads by Francis St. Andrew( Book )

1 edition published in 1953 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The clasping reflex in frogs and toads at breeding time is not clearly understood. Most biologists feel that though the reflex itself is spinal in nature, it is modified and governed by some brain center located either in the mid-brain, cerebellum, or medulla. Furthermore, the seasonal manifestation of this behavior implies additional influence of a hormone nature. The project here reported consists of the preparation of extracts of posterior pituitary hormones from the glands of feshly killed animals and the injection of this material into healthy frogs. Experiments have not been completed, but it is anticipated (1) that injections received during the breeding season will augment the strength and duration of the reflex and (2) that injections received at other times may cause the reflex to appear out of season. A report was presented at the Upper Peninsula Science Fair."--Abstract
Certain external parasites of small Upper Peninsula vertebrates by Albert A Ikkala( Book )

1 edition published in 1947 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In presenting this material the author has one major purpose in view: To help pave the way for a further study of parasites on Upper Peninsula of Michigan's small animals, especially those animals that are of interest to conservation plans. Not having the necessary permit to take game birds or animals out of season, the author has paid special interest to animals not protected by law, such as small birds (sparrows), red squirrels, chipmunks, few specimen from a dog and rat. Also included in this material will be illustrations of a grub of a Hypoderma lineata (heel fly of cattle) taken from underneath the skin of a cow."--Preface
The fish of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with emphasis on the stomach contents preferably the insects : thesis by Bruno Dominic Stefani( Book )

1 edition published in 1943 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In this thesis I shall attempt to give a fairly good survey of the insects and of the various fishes and the relationship towards the food problem. To finish a better report would require the use of more time for securing fishes at different seasons so that a better tabulation could be accomplished. This type of work requires a great deal of field, as well as laboratory work, and therefore time was the great element that would not permit a more detailed report."--Preface
The Rotifera of the Marquette area by Richard D Florence( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The main objective in classifying the rotifers of the Marquette area appears to be an open field at the present time. Very little literature or any sort of information could be found concerning studies of rotifers in the above area. Numerous material has been published about work done in Wisconsin but little on Upper Michigan. The methods used will be concerned with limnological methods, culture methods, preservation methods, taxonomy methods, and micro-technique methods."--Introduction
The mosquitoes of the Three Lakes, Baraga County, Michigan, area by George W Hager( Book )

1 edition published in 1950 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"During the late spring and early summer of 1950, a sampling of the mosquito fauna of the Three Lakes, Baraga County, Michigan, area was taken by the author whiel working under the auspices of the Department of Biology of Northern Michigan College of Education at Marquette, Michigan. The general purpose of the survey was to get all possible information, as time permitted, on the breeding places, abundance, species, and any other information relative to the Culicidae of the area with a view to future continuation of the survey by other workers in other areas of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan."--Author's description

Species of algae of Marquette County by Leino W Pynnonen( Book )

1 edition published in 1947 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The study of the algae of Michigan in general has been neglected; it seems to present an almost unexplored field. In my search through the literature, I found only the works by Gerald W. Prescott and Angelina Magnotta on some Michigan desmids, and the study made by Helen Sharpensteen on some algae of the vicinity of Marquette and Caspian. Some knowledge of protozoology, I found, was necessary since some protozoa resemble algae. In fact, there is some dispute as to whether some organisms are to be classified as protozoa or as algae. Since a study of algae necessarily entails a great deal of microscopical examination, a knowledge of the microscopic techniques is also valuable."--Preface
A survey of the free-living protozoa of the Marquette area by Albert Jay Moberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1949 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study was conducted on thirty acres of land adjacent to Northern Michigan College of Education. Protozoa were found in potholes and accumulated water, and on the in a lake situated on the 100-acre Longyear Forest property
A preliminary study of the Tabanidae (Diptera) of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan by M. Stuart Eldred( Book )

1 edition published in 1950 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The family Tabanidae of the order Diptera contains those flies which are generally called horseflies or deerflies. As these common names indicate, the importance of the family lies largely in its relation to the welfare of livestock and wildlife. This would, in itself, be enough reason for undertaking a study of the tabanids. However, in addition to their importance to domestic animals, the Tabanidae are important to man's own welfare in many areas of the world. Tabanids serve as vectors of approximately eight different diseases which attack both man and animals. Their fierce biting and voracious appetite cause great economic loss by decreasing considerably the value of livestock, which are often under attack by great numbers of these flies. Their "nuisance value" decreases appreciably the efficiency of outdoor labor, and lessens the utility of outdoor recreational facilities. These are some of the reasons why a systematic study of the family Tabanidae should be made. We can control these flies only if we know what we are fighting, and which stage of the life cycle of the fly is most vulnerable to attack. Thus both taxonomy and morphology should be considered in such a survey. When I undertook this study, I was also motivated by the fact that the Tabanidae of this area have not been catalogued."--Introduction
