      Space being utilized in a corridor for hanging baskets
  • Tignor, Milton (2005-04-07
      Irrigation manifold and zoned piping for hanging basket production. Emitters can be seen hanging down in this off season image.
  • McMahon, Margaret (2004-10-18
      Hanging baskets in gutters (the lines of baskets are not straight, which can cause watering problems)
  • McMahon, Margaret (2004-10-18
  • McMahon, Margaret (2004-10-18
      Shows irrigation tube going into hanging basket
  • McMahon, Peg (2006-04-25
      Greenhouse managers often grow one or more layers of crops above the main production area by placing hanging baskets on wire or pipes.
  • McMahon, Peg (2006-04-25
      Be aware of the shadows that hanging baskets cause and the effect those shadows have on plants below the baskets. If the shadows move they are less of a problem than stationary shadows.
  • McMahon, Peg (2006-04-25
      Hanging baskets can cast shadows that adversely affect plants growing below the baskets.
  • McMahon, Margaret (2005-11-21
      Plants such as pothos that tolerate low light can be grown in in hanging baskets in multiple tiers at relatively close spacing without jeopardizing plant quality.

      The greenhouse headhouse is an area having a solid roof where non-growing work can be done. Seed-sowing, transplanting, and packing are examples of work that can be done in a headhouse.
  • Tignor, Milton (2005-02-03
      one bay of headhouse at UVM main campus greenhouse complex. Double doors seperate large work room from bench top area.

      Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a non-invasive breast cancer that comprises approximately 20% of new breast cancer diagnoses. DCIS is predominantly detected by screening mammography prior to the development of any clinical symptoms. Prognosis following a DCIS diagnosis is excellent, due to both the availability of effective treatments and the frequently benign nature of the disease. However, a DCIS diagnosis and its treatment have psychological and physical impacts that often lead to adverse changes in health-related behaviors, including changes in physical activity, body weight, alcohol intake, and smoking, which may represent a greater threat to the woman's overall health than the DCIS itself. Depending on age at diagnosis, women diagnosed with DCIS are 3-13 times more likely to die from non-breast cancer related causes, such as cardiovascular disease, than from breast cancer. Thus, the maintenance and improvement of healthy behaviors that influence a variety of outcomes after diagnosis may warrant increased attention during DCIS management. This may also represent an important opportunity to promote the adoption of healthy behaviors, given that DCIS carries the psychological impact of a cancer diagnosis but also a favorable prognosis. Particular focus is needed to address these issues in vulnerable patient subgroups with pre-existing higher rates of unhealthy behaviors and demonstrated health disparities. (C) 2015 Elsevier Inc.

      Interacting drivers and pressures in many parts of the world are greatly undermining the long-term health and wellbeing of coastal human populations and marine ecosystems. However, we do not yet have a well-formed picture of the nature and extent of the human poverty of coastal communities in these areas. In this paper, we begin to fill the gap and present a multidimensional picture of the wellbeing of coastal communities, using nationally representative survey data to examine the health, wealth, and educational status of households in over 38000 communities across 38 developing countries. In general, we found high levels of poverty across the 3 dimensions (health, wealth, and education) analyzed, but each dimension also showed large heterogeneity within and across countries. We found that coastal communities had statistically significant higher levels of wellbeing than non-coastal communities. Coastal children were less stunted, less poor, and more likely to live in a higher educated household when compared to non-coastal households. However, we found that across coastal communities, rural coastal communities had 1.5 times lower height-for-age standard deviation scores (representing high childhood stunting rates), were 4 times more likely to be poor, and were 1.6 times more likely to have low levels of educational attainment. A deeper understanding of human wellbeing along coasts is critical for generating wider social and more long-term economic benefits with respect to coastal marine management.

      detailed view of rear of unit heater
  • Heleba, David (2005-01-27
      Although boilers are usually kept separate from growing spaces sometimes due to space constraints boilers are placed inside the growing area. Care must be taken to avoid getting water on the electric parts.
  • McMahon, Peg (2006-04-25
      Some shade houses can be minimally heated with forced air heating units. This system would most likely be used in propagation facilities.
  • Tignor, Milton (2005-03-18
      close up of stationary metal heat pipe that doubles as tracking system for utility carts. Background shows trickle irrigation, trough to collect irrigation, rockwool cubes that tomato plants grow in, and mature tomato vines.
