Rotylenchulus reniformis was evaluated for total distance moved, rate of movement, and population growth upon initial introduction into a cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) field under irrigated and non-irrigated conditions. The ...

Dimensions of Growth: Examining the Five Factors of the Posttraumatic Growth Inventory 

Silverstein, Madison (2015-12-10)
Posttraumatic growth (PTG) is positive transformation following a traumatic experience. PTG, commonly measured with the Posttraumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI; Tedeschi & Calhoun, 1996), is postulated to occur in five distinct ...

Dioxygen reduction and Superoxide dismutase mimicry using first row transition metal complexes with redox active organic ligands. 

Obisesan, Segun (2024-04-22)  ETD File Embargoed
The efficient activation of small molecules, such as dioxygen (O2) and superoxide (O2-), is key to solving several energy- and health-related challenges. The selective reduction of O2 to water (H2O) is integral to the ...

Direct Instruction Reading: Effects of the Reading Mastery Plus - Level K Program on Preschool Children with Developmental Delays

Despite the success of Direct Instruction (DI) programs in teaching a variety of individuals how to read, there has been little research on the use of DI for young children with developmental delays. The purpose of the ...

Direct-Write and Aerosol Jet Processes with Evaluation for Additively Printed Electronics 

Narangaparambil, Jinesh Janardhanan (2023-08-04)  ETD File Embargoed
Printed electronics, with their eco-friendliness, cost-effectiveness, and scalability, are becoming popular as a replacement for traditional silicon electronics. Flexible batteries, wearable sensors, and screens are just ...

Directed Self-Assembly of Tethered Membranes on Nanoparticles 

Kelly, Alexander (2018-04-30)
Nanoparticles have demonstrated success in overcoming many barriers of therapeutic delivery. The advantages of these systems include increased drug loading, an ability to package poorly soluble and/or highly toxic drugs, ...

Disability Documentation Criteria for Students with Learning Disabilities in Higher Education 

Shipp, Allison (2008-08-15)
Students with disabilities are one of the most unemployed and underemployed groups in America today. Postsecondary education is becoming increasingly more important in the workforce. More and more careers are requiring at ...

Disability Identity: The Impact of Disability Type for Individuals with Disabilities 

Hall, Angela (2018-04-17)
Disability identity development is a fairly recent and unique phenomenon in the academic literature that shapes an individual’s way of seeing him or herself, their bodies, their ways of interacting with the world and the ...

The Discomforts of Empire: Emily Eden's Life in India, 1836-1842 

Christiansen, Amy (2012-07-27)
This thesis discusses the physical and psychological discomforts of Emily Eden, an English aristocrat, during her life in India from 1836 to 1842. I argue that the comforts Eden identified during her early life in England ...

Discourses of Race and Disease in British and American Travel Writing about the South Seas 1870-1915 

Clayton, Jeffrey (2009-12-15)
The nineteenth century saw the islands of the South Pacific colonized by the Western powers, including the United States. Because of this relatively late date compared to other colonized regions of the world, the imperializing ...

Discovering Diversity: The Subversive Detective in Late Victorian and Edwardian Detective Fiction 

Watson, Buchanan (2023-10-18)  ETD File Embargoed
This dissertation examines the ways British detective fiction at the turn of the twentieth century undermined dominant ideological systems through the presentation of culturally, ideologically, and formally subversive ...

Discovering Stereotype Limbo: Exploring the Relationship between Stereotype Threat and the Professional Experiences & Identities of Male K12 Teachers 

Towns-Newby, Leonard (2015-12-10)
The number of men teaching in K12 settings is of significant concern. It is even more critical now because the number of men in the field has decreased to a record low of twenty-four percent. It is predicted that the ...

Discovering Vulnerabilities In The Wild: An Empirical Study 

Fang, Ming (2014-12-11)
There is little or no information available on what actually happens when a software vulnerability is detected. We performed an empirical study on reporters of the three most prominent security vulnerabilities: buffer ...

Discovery and characterization of antibacterial compounds expressed by soil microorganisms using culture-dependent and -independent approaches 

Nasrin, Shamima (2015-07-31)
The emergence of multidrug-resistant pathogens has increased the demand for discovery of novel antibiotics. Both culture-dependent and culture-independent approaches were used to discover antibiotics against methicillin-resistant ...
