Journal of the Elder Scientific Exploring Expedition, 1891-2 by David Lindsay( Book )

8 editions published between 1893 and 1999 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Thomas Elder, who had earlier financed the first great desert journey of Ernest Giles, in 1891 fitted out the expedition of David Lindsay, the celebrated Northern Territory explorer and surveyor general. In 1883 Lindsay had led an expedition into Arnhem Land, travelling to the Gulf of Carpentaria. He went on to explore extensively in the MacDonnell Ranges region before his last and most important work, this scientifically equipped expedition made possible by the sole support of Sir Thomas Elder. The object of the expedition was to explore the unknown interior of Western Australia between the routes laid out by Forrest in 1874 and Giles in 1875 for the purpose of completing the exploration of Australia. Lindsays expedition arrived in Geraldton in January 1892, besieged by internal conflict: the entire scientific team, except for Lawrence Allen Wells, resigned. This marked an abrupt end to David Lindsays career as an explorer and closed down an expensive expedition that produced very few new discoveries. This is the official report by the leader of the expedition, complete with maps. In the summary of the work Lindsay states that the expedition travelled 2,745 miles through unexplored country, whilst 80,000 square miles was explored and mapped. The abandoment of the expedition was a terrible disappointment to me. That men had so little sense of duty to their leader and to their generous employer should have been the primary cause of the break up of such a splendidly-equipped expedition

Multi-scale visualization and characterization of lignocellulosic plant cell wall deconstruction during thermochemical pretreatment( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deconstruction of lignocellulosic plant cell walls to fermentable sugars by thermochemical and/or biological means is impeded by several poorly understood ultrastructural and chemical barriers. A promising thermochemical pretreatment called ammonia fiber expansion (AFEX) overcomes the native recalcitrance of cell walls through subtle morphological and physicochemical changes that enhance cellulase accessibility without extracting lignin and hemicelluloses into separate liquid streams. Multi-scale visualization and characterization of Zea mays (i.e., corn stover) cell walls were carried out by laser scanning confocal fluorescence microscopy (LSCM), Raman spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM), electron microscopy (SEM, TEM), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA) to elucidate the mechanism of AFEX pretreatment. AFEX first dissolves, then extracts and, as the ammonia evaporates, redeposits cell wall decomposition products (e.g., amides, arabinoxylan oligomers, lignin-based phenolics) on outer cell wall surfaces. As a result, nanoporous tunnel-like networks, as visualized by 3D-electron tomography, are formed within the cell walls. We propose that this highly porous structure greatly enhances enzyme accessibility to embedded cellulosic microfibrils. The shape, size (10 to 1000 nm), and spatial distribution of the pores depended on their location within the cell wall and the pretreatment conditions used. Exposed pore surface area per unit AFEX pretreated cell wall volume, estimated via TEM-tomogram image analysis, ranged between 0.005 and 0.05 nm2 per nm3. AFEX results in ultrastructural and physicochemical modifications within the cell wall that enhance enzymatic hydrolysis yield by 4-5 fold over that of untreated cell walls."
