College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
We hope this year’s sampling of ongoing research activity in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences will be of interest to you. Selecting the topics for this publication is an interesting task each year. We try to pick topics that represent a cross section of our total effort and at the same time provide information that will be useful to our readers.
I believe we have succeeded but you will be the judge. Hopefully, whether you have a leaning toward the plant sciences, the animal sciences, one of the social sciences or just have a general interest in the college’s activities you will find an article that suits your interests. I wish to thank our very competent production staff who always develop a first-class publication and to our excellent faculty and staff who generated the information that is being reported.
As always, feel free to contact my office if you have questions or need additional information.
