    Brief Note: The Status of Ermine (Mustela erminea) in Ohio
    (1990-03) McDonald, Kenneth P.; Case, Denis S.
    The status of ermine as regular inhabitants of Ohio has been unclear. Previously, only three records were known from the state. In this study, size 0 leghold traps and 8 x 8 x 25 cm Sherman traps were used to capture five ermine in Ashtabula and Trumbull Counties during summer 1987 and two in Trumbull County in 1988. Ermine are permanent residents in at least Trumbull County.

    Movements of Northern Pike tagged in Waters Tributary to Lake Erie
    (1990-03) Clark, Clarence F.
    Over an eight-year period, 2,659 northern pike {Esox lucius Linnaeus) were tagged along the southwestern shore of Lake Erie with monel metal round tags. Of these, 698 were recaptured one to seven years later - 553 by Division of Wildlife nets, 106 by anglers, 22 by commercial fishermen, and 17 were found dead. Sixteen were recaptured four to six times and released before they were removed from the population. Except for a few strays, most of the pike were limited in movement to the area along the shore where they were tagged. The large number of Division net returns, during the month of March (1950-1957), indicate a concentration of pike in East Harbor, or on the spawning grounds.

    An Endangered Moth in Ohio, With Notes on Other Species of Special Concern (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae, Sphingidae, Notodontidae and Arctiidae)
    (1990-03) Metzler, Eric H.; Lucas, Vincent P.
    Seven families of Lepidoptera comprising 184 moth species in Ohio were evaluated for possible consideration as Endangered, Threatened or Special Concern status in Ohio. Based on extensive review of public and private collections of Ohio Lepidoptera, one species, Cycnia inopinatus (Henry Edwards) (Arctiidae) is considered Endangered. Four species: Hemileuca tnaia (Drury) (Saturniidae), Smerinthus cerisyi Kirby and Hemaris gradlis (Grote & Robinson) (Sphingidae), and Grammia oithona (Strecker) (Arctiidae) are of Special Concern. The Status is Unknown for three species: Sphinx drupiferarum J. E. Smith and Lapara botnbycoides Walker (Sphingidae), and Holomelina nigricans (Reakirt) (Arctiidae). Eight species are considered to be of Special Interest: Samia cynthia (Drury) (Saturniidae), Sphinx luscitiosa Clemens, Aellopos fadus (Cramer) and Xylophanes tersa (L.) (Sphingidae), Notodonta simplaria Graef and Gluphisia lintneri (Grote) (Notodontidae), Crambidia pura Barnes & McDunnough, and Grammia doris (Boisduval) (Arctiidae).

    Longevity of 68 Species of Drosophila
    (1990-03) Yoon, Jong Sik; Gagen, Kathleen Pausic; Zhu, Ding L.
    Adult longevity of Drosophila is dependent upon many factors. In this study the differences in longevity caused by species, strain, sex, and mating status were examined for 68 species (89 strains) belonging to the D. obscura, melanogaster, and willistoni species groups. Both inter- and intra-specific differences in adult longevity were observed. In most species studied, females lived longer than males. In general, the longevity of unmated females exceeded that of mated ones, while the longevity of mated males was greater than that of unmated ones.

    The Effect of Salinity on Seed Germination and Seedling Growth of Echinochloa crusgalli
    (1990-03) Rahman, Marlis; Ungar, Irwin A.
    The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effect of salinity on germination and seedling growth of Echinochloa crusgalli collected from different populations. Germination studies with Echinochloa crusgalli indicated that each increase in salinity up to 1.5% NaCl caused a reduction in germination in both scarification and stratification + light treatments, with no seeds germinating at 2% NaCl. Stratified seeds without light did not germinate in any of the treatments. Seeds originating from parents growing at low, medium, and high salinity field sites differed in their response to salinity stress. At 2% NaCl, seeds originating from all three seed sources failed to germinate. Each increment in salinity caused a decline in seedling height, but the decrease was 61% at 1.5% NaCl for the low salt population, 77% for the medium salt population and only 38% for the high salt population.

    Geomorphic and Pedogenic Processes Operative in Soils of a Hillslope in the Unglaciated Region of Ohio
    (1990-03) Amba, E. A.; Smeck, Neil E.; Hall, George F.; Bigham, Jerry M.
    Parent material uniformity, weathering, and clay translocation in three soils comprising a uniform hillslope in Jefferson County were evaluated to obtain a better understanding of geomorphic and pedogenic processes operative in the unglaciated region of Ohio. Based on detailed field observations, it was hypothesized that at least three parent materials occurred in all three soils. The hypothesis was confirmed using contents and ratios of elements occurring almost exclusively in resistant minerals. The three parent materials are: 1) a surface mantle of silty colluvium (colluvium with an admixture of loess), 2) a middle layer of colluvium having a high content of coarse fragments, and 3) residuum derived from sandstone. Weathering indices indicate that all three materials are uniformly weathered along the hillslope. Both mineralogy and distribution of clay show that weathering processes tend to attenuate lithologic differences. However, clay distribution provides evidence to suggest that the soils have been subjected to alternating periods of stability and instability. Instability results in the truncation of profiles or the addition of colluvium by solifluction, depending on location within the slope profile. It is speculated that solifluction was favored by the periglacial climate associated with the Wlsconsinan glacial epoch.
