Water quality degradation in the Illinois River Watershed (IRW) has been linked to excess nutrients, primarily phosphorus (P). A mass balance study was performed on the IRW in Oklahoma and Arkansas to quantify the magnitude of P entering the watershed between the closure of Lake Tenkiller’s dam in 1954 to 2006. Results showed that a substantial mass of P was, and is, being imported into the watershed relative to the mass of P leaving the watershed. The study demonstrated that poultry production has been the major contributor of P imported to the watershed since 1964, and is currently responsible for more than 76% of the net annual P additions to the IRW. Between 1949 and 2002, more than 200,000 tonnes of P was added to the IRW. A P delivery ratio for the IRW was computed from the mass balance results and observed loads indicating that 4% of annual P applied to the IRW landscape reached Lake Tenkiller between 1999 and 2006. Allocation of P loads from 1949 to 2002 to Lake Tenkiller computed with the delivery ratio showed that wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) discharges were responsible for more than 50% of P reaching Lake Tenkiller in 1949, followed by dairy cattle (32% of loads). Poultry contribution to P reaching Lake Tenkiller was 5% in 1949 but increased rapidly to become the largest source in 1969 at approximately 49%, and in 2002 at 54%. Both dairy and WWTP portions of the loads declined from 1949 levels with less than 4% attributable to dairy and less than 34% assigned to WWTP in 2002.
Marine Biology: A Sub-Sample of a Vast Topic
An operator on formal power series of the form S μS , where μ is an invertible power series, and σ is a series of the form t+（t2） is called a unipotent substitution with pre-function. Such operators, denoted by a pair (μ ，σ ） , form a group. The objective of this contribution is to show that it is possible to define a generalized powers for such operators, as for instance fractional powers σ for every .
of the effectiveness of work-teams is a major issue in the business world,
where they are expected to facilitate developing individual skills and increasing
organizations’ efficiency. Eighty-three engineers working in teams have
responded to a questionnaire devised to measure perceptual power distances, the
sense of relatedness, cohesion measured by integration around the task, and
teams’ effectiveness. Results reveal that “task cohesion” and sense of
relatedness mediate the relationship between power distance and perceived
effectiveness. These results are related with those observed in the context of
the self-determination theory and presented in order to highlight their
