Reading achievements in relation to growth in perception of word elements in three types of beginning reading instruction by Helen A Murphy( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problems examined in this study were (1) the relationship of perception of word elements to sight vocabulary growth, (2) the effect of early teaching of a speech-based phonics program on reading achievement, and (3) the value of writing emphasis in the speech-based phonics program. Three reading programs were included in the study, each used in 10 first-grade classrooms. One group followed the "gradual phonics approach" found in the scott-foresman readers and workbooks. A second group followed the systematic "speech-to-print phonics" program (durrell and murphy, 1964) with visual word study. The third group also used the "speech-to-print phonics" with an emphasis on writing responses. Test batteries were used to gather data on the three groups throughout 1 school year. The following conclusions were made on the basis of test data analysis--(1) growth in sight vocabulary in beginning reading is related to perception of word elements, (2) early teaching of speech-based phonics results in higher achievement in reading and spelling, (3) emphasis in writing practice results in more writing and better spelling in children's compositions.

Life history trade-offs between growth and reproduction in wild yeast by Simone M Giovanetti( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Life history trade-offs are an organism's balancing of energy allocations to necessary strategies of life: growth, reproduction, and survival. The success of a life history strategy depends on both the environment and the developmental constraints of an organism. The yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is an ideal organism to investigate microbial life history trade-offs. Since these yeast are found in a variety of environments with niche-specific strategies and the S. cerevisiae life cycle involves both sexual and asexual phases, I expected to see a life history trade-off between growth and reproduction within and between populations of yeast. A strain more efficient at mating should be a slower grower while a slow mater should proceed through the cell cycle quicker. To study this trade-off, I measured the relative rates of mating and asexual growth. I found a significant difference in both the speed of sexual and asexual reproduction within a single population as well as between populations from different environments. The results presented here are still preliminary, as the assays used to measure the relevant life history traits were prone to experimental error. Given that caveat, within the woodland population of yeast, which represents three distinct haplotypes, there appears to be an inverse relationship between the length of the cell cycle and the rate of mating, indicating a trade-off between the efficiency of each strategy. No pattern was found in strains of other ecotypes
