By Eugene L. Nakamura (auth.), Howard E. Winn, Bori L. Olla (eds.)

What were introduced jointly in those volumes are works characterize­ ing a number of sleek quantitative reviews on a opt for staff of marine organisms. a number of the species studied right here characterize uncomplicated organic ex­ perimental subjects-in a few circumstances, marine models of the white rat and pigeon-that are getting used for a variety of reports. different species studied have been nearly unknown as experimental animals. The authors have studied their animals in huge intensity, usually in either the sphere and the laboratory. it truly is this pass reference among actual existence and the substitute yet managed stipulations of the laboratory which provides us the required knowing, and eventually the ability, for bettering our quickly deteriorating setting, a needs to for man's survival, upkeep, and development of the standard of dwelling criteria. a right away outgrowth of a AAAS symposium entitled "Recent Advances within the habit of Marine Organisms" held in December 1966, those vol­ umes comprise an affordable stability among assessment and unique unpublished examine. Of the various individuals who've made those volumes attainable, we want to particularly thank Nancy Fish, Lois Wino, Mabel Trafford, and Deborah Brennan. The latter complete lots of the ultimate editorial paintings. The group of workers of Plenum Press have been cooperative in all features of our rela­ tionship. merely the 2 editors are chargeable for defects within the volumes. We think the papers offered are major and should be of significance to participants of the clinical community.

Automated scoring of complex tasks in computer-based testing

Using pcs and the net within the checking out group has multiplied the chance for cutting edge trying out. in the past, there has been nobody resource that reviewed the newest tools of automatic scoring for advanced tests. this is often the 1st quantity to supply that insurance, in addition to examples of "best practices" within the layout, implementation, and review of computerized complicated overview.

Product Variety Management: Research Advances

Product proliferation has turn into a typical phenomenon. such a lot businesses now provide hundreds and hundreds, if now not hundreds of thousands, of inventory holding devices (SKUs) which will compete out there position. businesses with increasing product and repair types face with difficulties of acquiring actual call for forecasts, controlling construction and stock charges, and delivering top of the range and reliable supply functionality for the purchasers.

Example text

Nakamura from 37 to 58 cm long, were successfully established in a small concrete tank and a large pond after initial failure in a small pond (Tester, 1952). Tunas were caught by surface trolling. They were transported to shore in the bait well of the boat. A dip net was used to transfer fish from the baitwell to the pond or tank. 2 m deep. Salt water was supplied by pumping from a channel. Baffles had been used to round the corners, because the tunas tended to swim along the walls of the tank and had difficulty in turning, especially if they were swimming rapidly when they reached a right-angle corner.

Thus, if the widest part of a histogram appears at the top, then a fish spent the greatest proportion of a 3-min period farthest from the rock in the >60 cm zone. If the widest portion of the histogram appears at the bottom in a figure, then the fish spent most of a 3-min observation period on the rock shelter. In scanning the histograms it is less confusing if one watches the Feeding Behavior of Damselfish 283 lowest portion or "on rock" zone, as this represents where the fish is not feeding whereas zones above this are where feeding occurs almost exclusively.
