Biostratigraphic and paleoecologic implications of the first Eocene land mammal fauna from the North American coastal plain
A newly discovered vertebrate fossil assemblage, the Casa Blanca local fauna, comes from the Laredo Formation, Claiborne Group, of Webb County, Texas, and is the first reported Eocene land mammal fauna from the coastal ...
Lower Cretaceous stratigraphy and depositional systems in northwestern Coahuila, Mexico
The stratigraphic relationship of Lower Cretaceous rocks in northern Mexico is poorly understood because they have not been studied in detail. One of the main objectives of this study is to analyze the Lower Cretaceous ...

Systematics and evolution of bats of the genus Glossophaga
(Texas Tech University, 1983-08)
A comparison of the effects of praise and encouragement on the production rate of individuals with mental retardation
(Texas Tech University, 1988-05)
Various techniques, such as goal setting and modeling (Kleibham, 1976), verbal and graphic informational feedback (jens & Shores, 1969; Weinberg, 1977), and social praise (Bellamy, Peterson, & Close, 1975; Ditty, 1983) ...
An evaluation of the classification of hyperkinetic children with the Vigilance task and the Matching familiar figures test
(Texas Tech University, 1982-08)
The accurate diagnosis and placement of hyperactive children has been recognized as critical in the planning and implementation of psycho-educational interventions aimed at ameliorating the difficulties these children ...

A failure prediction model for window glass
(Texas Tech University, 1980-05)
There is a need within engineering practice for an analytical method to predict the probability of failure of window glass plates subjected to lateral loads. The failure prediction technique should include provision for ...
A numerical method for inverse heat conduction problems
(Texas Tech University, 1989-08)
This thesis presents a numerical scheme and error analysis for the determination of surface temperature at one end of a finite rod from a finite number of temperature readings at a point interior to the rod. Although this ...
