An epidemiological study of congenital malformations in the northern peninsula of Michigan by Don W Alimenti( Book )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Man's most unique and precious possession is his hereditary material which must determine the health and the orderly development of future generations. Evidence has in recent years been accumulating for the broad conclusion that a great majority, if not all of the damaging effects on life and health evoked by ionizing radiation are results of permanent changes produced in the genetic material: the chromosomes or their contained genes. With this thought in mind, I became interested in a statistical study of the incidence of congenital malformations in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Occurring within the boundaries are areas with igneous bedrock outcrops having relatively high levels of radioactivity and an average range of equivalent uranium content of between 0.003 and 0.004 per cent. The study was initiated in order to discover whether there was any correlation between malformations and residence in areas containing these igneous bedrock outcrops and areas in which the bedrock was of a much less radioactive nature."--Preface
A bacteriological survey of Redberry Lake by Albert K Carlson( Book )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Redberry Lake is a part of Longyear Tract, the property of Northern Michigan College. The period of the survey was from February to June, 1960. The study consisted of obtaining water and bottom samples from the lake, plating of the samples in nutrient agar to obtain pure colonies, transferring these colonies to pure culture slants, and the performance of morphological, biochemical, and cultural tests with each culture, in an attempt to place them in taxonomic groups. The survey was restricted to aerobic, non-fastidious bacteria. Quantitative determinations were not conducted. Cultural tests included reduction of nitrates to nitrites, fermentation of carbohydrates (dextrose, sucrose, and lactose) with resultant acid and gas production, gelatin liquefaction, hydrolysis of fat, hydrolysis of starch, and production of indol and hydrogen sulfide. In addition, various stained microscopic slide preparations were made. Twenty eight pure bacterial cultures were obtained from three periods of collection."--Abstract

The effects of light and background on fish coloration by David Muehrcke( Book )

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

"Color changes were noticed when Umbra limi, (mud minnows) and Crysoleucas auratus (Western golden shiners) were placed in differently colored, illuminated backgrounds. The change was usually to shades of color lighter or darker than the normal minnow color. Golden shiners would change color and fade into their background within 20 minutes, but mud minnows took much longer. The light intensity was held constant throughout the experiment. A special 100 watt blue light bulb, which imitates the sun's rays, was the source of illumination. Minnows thought to be blinded by a hot needle turned dark in color and could not make any other color change when placed against different backgrounds. Mud minnow's backs turned nearly black after they were blinded, and golden shiners turned very dark gray. A technique was developed for holding minnows while vision was being destroyed. Throughout the experiment the water was held steady at 61 degrees F. Empty gallon mayonnaise jars for the college cafeteria were used as aquariums. An interchangeable type of painted vinyl plastic background was employed thus eliminating extensive handling of the fish. All minnows used were captured in Marquette County. A special hand-made trap was devised to capture Western golden shiners, which would not enter a trap of standard type. From the foregoing experiments, it appears that minnows must be able to see their background in order to make a color change."--Abstract
Investigation of enteric bacteria on stable flies from farm and beach areas by Francis W Kellner( Book )

Evalulation of Dobell's mordant hematoxylin method for the preparation of permanent protozoa slides by Beth Frey Peters( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Various techniques for the staining and mounting of protozoans as permanent slides were studied in order to find a practical method for the preparation of a reference collection of protozoan specimens at Northern Michigan College. The method of Dobell using an alcoholic hematein stain was found to work well with flagellates and testacea. This method is recommended from the standpoint of involving a small number of steps in the procedure, using small amounts of reagents, and preparing slides of high quality."--Page 1
A study of the parasitic cestodes and nematodes infecting the snowshoe hare in Marquette and Alger counties by Warren G Yoder( Book )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In the normal course of hunting animals, either for food or sport, the hunter may come upon parasites on or within his game. To the untrained individual, parasites may never be seen or the significance of their presence not fully understood. Wildlife diseases and parasites are more prevalent than most hunters realize. In reality, no population of animals is ever entirely free of disease and parasites. Parasites are so common that they must be considered normal for wild game. They are tolerated in considerable numbers without ill effects and only in excessive numbers are they likely to impair the health of the host. However, only a pathologist or parasitologist would be aware of this parasitism under ordinary circumstances. Parasitism is the rule in nature and the normal situation is parasitic infestation without ill health. This study was undertaken to determine the kinds of parasitism present in the snowshoe hare. Results show that parasitism is prevalent in this game animal to a high degree."--Preface

Aquatic gastropods from that part of Marquette County and a portion of Alger county with drainage into Lake Superior by Ronald S Maitland( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This paper deals with eleven species of snails representing seven genera and six families of aquatic gastropods. These snails were collected from that part of Marquette County and a part of Alger County with drainage into Lake Superior. This study embraces two semesters of work and was divided into two parts. The field work was completed during most of the fall of the first semester and the identification of specimens collected was undertaken during the second semester. The following paper, then, is offered as a contribution to the knowledge of the fauna of Marquette county and to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Earlier workers who have focused their attention on aquatic gastropods in the Upper Peninsula include Ruthven (1904), Walker (1909), Winslow (1917, 1926) H.B.Baker (1922), Goodrich (1932), and Goodrich and Van Der Schalie (1939). Comprehensive surveys in other areas include those by Baker (1909,1928), Berry (1943), Hubendick (1951), Clench & Turner (1956), McCraw (1957), Leonard (1959), and Branson (1959, 1960, 1961)."--Introduction
