  2. Was the Shawnee War Chief Blue Jacket a Caucasian?

    Rowland, Carolyn; Van Trees, R. V.; Taylor, Marc S.; Raymer, Michael L.; Krane, Dan E.
    Two distinctly different origins have been ascribed to the great Shawnee war chief Blue Jacket who played a pivotal role in the early history of southwestern Ohio. By one very popular account, he was a captured Caucasian who embraced the ways of the Shawnee and came to lead their warriors in a campaign that unified all the Indian tribes of the Ohio River Valley against the United States of America. In contrast, modern day Shawnee Indians who still bear the Blue Jacket surname suggest that the legendary War Chief was unequivocally a Native American.

  3. What is Science?

    Shrake, Douglas L.; Elfner, Lynn E.; Hummon, William; Janson, Richard W.; Free, Miles
    In 2000 The Ohio Academy of Science published its definition of "Science." Response to this definition led the Academy to produce a position paper entitled What is Science? The Academy officially adopted the position paper version of What is Science?, http://www.ohiosci.org/Whatisscience.pdf, at the April 2004 Ohio Academy of Science Annual Meeting. Response to this fact sheet demonstrated a need to further expand this document. Thus, this expanded version builds on the April 2004 position paper, What is Science? This paper clarifies what is science, the scientific method, a scientific hypothesis, a scientific theory, the importance of science, and what is...

  4. The Vertical Distribution of Phytoplankton Assemblages of Lake James, North Carolina in Relation to Mixing Depth and Nitrate and Phosphate Concentrations

    Celik, Kemal; Schindler, James
    Phytoplankton, nitrate ( − 3NO ) (mg L-1), and phosphate ( 3− 4 PO ) (mg L-1) concentrations were studied in Lake James, NC, during 1997 and 1998. Depths of 2.0, 10, and 30 m were chosen for sampling to determine the vertical distribution of phytoplankton. At 2.0 and 10 m, the species diversity of Heterokontophyta was mainly represented by Mallomonas caudata (Ivanov); Chlorophyta by Chlamydomonas polypyrenoideum (Prescott); Bacillariophyta by Melosira granulata (Ehrenberg) Ralfs and Asterionella formosa (Hassall), respectively. At 30 m, the species diversity of Cryptophyta was mainly represented by Rhodomans minuta (Skuja); Bacillariophyta by Cyclotella glomerata (Bachmann), Synedra ulna...

  5. Nutrients, Eutrophic Response, and Fish Anomalies in the Little Miami River, Ohio

    Evans, Rebecca L.; Miller, Michael C.
    We documented the eutrophic and chemical environment in the Little Miami River (LMR) to better understand the interaction between eutrophication, eutrophic response variables, and the health of aquatic organisms. Total phosphorus (TP) and soluble reactive phosphorus (SRP), nitrogen, dissolved oxygen (DO), benthic and sestonic algal biomass, benthic phosphorus storage, aqueous trace metals (Cd, Cr, Cu, Se, Zn), heavy metals (Al, Fe, Mn) and major cations (Ca, K, Mg, Na, Si) were analyzed at twelve sites over two summers. Results showed excess TP (>70 ug/L, p <0.05) and SRP (≥62.5 ug/L, p <0.05), borderline nuisance benthic algal biomass (mg/L chlorophyll a/m2) (periphyton:...

  6. James Hall’s (1856) Rostroconchs from the Mississippian of Indiana and Illinois

    Hoare, Richard D.
    Hall (1856) described without illustrations six species of the rostroconch Conocardium in his study of the fauna of the Salem Limestone in Indiana and the Warsaw Shale in Illinois. The species represent five genera, two of which are new, Leptoconocardium and Kyoconocardium. Other species represent the genera Hippocardia Brown, 1843; Oxyprora Hoare, Mapes, and Yancey, 2002; and Diedrorynchus Hoare and Peck, 2005.

  7. Passive Establishment of Vegetation in Constructed Wetlands in Agricultura Settings: a Case Study

    Luckeydoo, Lee M.; Fausey, Norman R.; Davis, Craig B.; Regnier, Emilie; Brown, Larry C.
    Three wetlands constructed in 1995 on land adjacent to agricultural fields in northwest Ohio were allowed to establish vegetation passively. Survey data collected 1998-2001 from quadrats in open water, frequently and infrequently submerged zones within the basin, identified 77 species over the three sites. Greatest species diversity occurred in the infrequently and frequently submerged zones. The dominant species within the wetlands originated from agricultural fields, nearby drainage ditches, streams, and the seeded erosion control buffer zones surrounding the wetlands. Six years following construction, less than 50% of the dominant species were wetland species. Results suggest that for constructed wetlands in agricultural...
