North American Species of Cactus By U. S. Department of Agriculture
eBook (PDF): $2.00
In the fall of 1890 Dr. George Vasey, then Botanist of the Department of Agriculture, arranged with me to prepare a revision of North American Cactaceae. Owing to the peculiar difficulty... More > of preserving material the family was poorly represented, even in our leading herbaria. To secure a large amount of additional material in the way of specimens and field notes the Department authorized me to visit the region of the Mexican boundary during the summer of 1891. Preliminary to this exploration it was necessary to examine the Engelmann collection of Cactaceae, in the possession of the Missouri Botanical Garden. This collection, supplemented by the continual additions made at the garden, is by far the largest collection of skeletons and living specimens in this country, and also contains the large majority of our types.< Less

OTREC-RR-10-17 By Peter Dusicka

This study examines retrofitting bridge brace elements with fiber reinforced composites to provide restraint against buckling. The composites are fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite pultruded... More > sections and wet lay-up wraps. Prototype specimens were tested using reverse cyclic loading, and their performance was characterized by their compressive strength and their overall hysteretic behavior. This exploratory study shows that retrofitting slender bracing members with FRP sections improves performance. All retrofitted specimens show improved compressive strength in the linear elastic and plastic deformation range of the slender bracing member. The cyclic behavior had only a marginal improvement due to failure at the bolted brace connections. Brace modification marginally improved cyclic performance. Despite the challenges of connection failures, applying fiber reinforced composites has a potential to restrain buckling of slender bracing members and to improve compressive resistance.< Less

Late Roman Bronze Coinage - An attribution guide for poorly preserved coins By Alisdair Menzies & Guido Bruck
Hardcover: List Price: $46.85 $39.82 | You Save: 15%
Prints in 3-5 business days
In the course of the fourth century, millions of bronze coins were struck in the Roman Empire: an area extending from modern Britain to Egypt. The iconography present in these modest remnants of a... More > distant past provides a fascinating insight into the realities, hopes and desires not only of the common people, but also of those who ruled over them. It is possible to identify with a remarkable degree of precision where, when and by whom coins of this period were struck. Traditional numismatic works rely heavily on a textual description and assume that one has a perfectly preserved specimen. Perhaps unsurprisingly, given their age, the majority of coins encountered are worn or incomplete, making identification difficult. However, as demonstrated by this work, a closer study of their composition and iconography yields more than enough information to identify all but the most poorly preserved specimens.

Appendices include tips on casting butterfly specimens in resin. The author is currently affiliated with the De La Salle–College of Saint Benilde. Formerly one of the Science Education Specialists at the University of the Philippines – National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development, he earlier advised the National Historical Institute that the list in Epistolario Rizalino No. 124 (Kalaw, 1961) is not a list of butterflies but of sea shells. However, the error continued to spread through the years, prompting him to publish his research on those specimens that Rizal sent and/or received from European entomologists.< Less
