The objective of this research was to evaluate nutrient digestibility, growth performance, and processing yields of Ross × Ross 708 male broilers fed diets formulated with low oligosaccharide soybean meal (LOSBM) and ...

Nutrient Dynamics in an Old-Growth Bottomland Forest: Congaree National Park, South Carolina 

Ricker, Matthew (2013-12-16)
Floodplains are important landscapes that act as boundaries between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Past research efforts have illustrated that floodplains perform many beneficial functions, such as sediment retention ...

Nutrient Intake and Epigenetic Influences on Childhood Obesity: A Racial Perspective 

Patel, Priyadarshni (2023-12-01)  ETD File Embargoed
Obesity, a complex condition influenced by both genetic and environmental factors, poses a significant public health challenge. Despite extensive efforts in dietary, exercise, educational, surgical, and pharmacological ...

Nutrient Uptake and Plant Selection in Southeastern Rain Gardens 

Jernigan, Kathryne (2010-08-13)
A bioretention rain garden is an innovative stormwater management practice that integrates stormwater infiltration and storage to improve the quality of runoff. Part1. Two bioretention rain garden designs constructed at ...

Nutritional Ecology of Pseudacteon species (Diptera: Phoridae) and Its Impact on Their Fitness 

Ajayi, Olufemi (2015-07-24)
Natural enemies, such as Pseudacteon parasitic flies, have the potential to provide sustainable suppression of imported fire ants, Solenopsis species. Multiple releases of various species of these flies have been made ...

Nutritional strategies for mitigating wooden breast and white striping myopathies of the Pectoralis major muscles in broiler chickens 

Meloche, Kathryn (2017-04-17)
Throughout the last decade, broiler producers have increasingly noted the presence of wooden breast (WB) and white striping (WS) in the Pectoralis major muscles (breast fillet) of broilers. Non-genetic factors, such as ...

Nutritive quality of Coastal bermudagrass treated with plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria 

Fike, Connie (2017-04-15)
Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) are naturally occurring, non-pathogenic soil bacteria that aggressively colonize plant roots. These beneficial bacteria increase nutrient uptake, pest resistance, drought tolerance, ...

Obesity as a Function of the Efficient Allocation of Time and Optimality in Consumption: A Theoretical and Empirical Examination 

Pirouz, Kian (2005-08-15)
The goal of this thesis is to examine the relationship between economic conditions, such as allocative efficiency, utility maximization and time costs, and obesity. A theory is developed and two empirical models tested. ...

Obesity Effects on Preferred Driving Postures and Vehicle Interior Component Settings 

Jeong, Yi Hun (2011-07-05)
The effects of obesity were investigated with a highly adjustable vehicle mock-up. 44 participants (23 non-obese, 21 extremely obese individuals) were involved in the study. The extremely obese and non-obese group had ...
