tuberosum Chilotanum Group, thrives in the long-day
conditions farther south, which makes it preadapted to grow in other long day-length environments like Europe and North America.
Objective: To develop nutrition recommendations for food provided during long-day child-care hours, expressed in terms of a percentage of recommended dietary intakes (RDIs) for nutrients.
Main outcome measures: The proportion of the mean total daily nutrient intake consumed during long-day child-care hours in quantitative amounts and in percentage RDI.
Conclusion or application: The recommendation that 'at least 50% of the RDI for nutrients be provided to children during long-day child-care' is consistent with children's current eating patterns.
In Australia, 28% of children attend long-day child-care and 18% attend family day care, with more than 177 000 children using long-day child-care centres in 1996 (1).
The food eaten by children during long-day child-care makes an important contribution to their overall nutritional intake at a time that is critical for physical and mental development.
Short-day hamsters had more of some major immune cells than long-day animals did.
In the current study, when researchers distressed the animals by confining them in a short tube for 2 hours, the short-day hamsters sent more immune calls to their skin than the long-day hamsters did.
Photoperiod averaged 13.6 h [d.sup.-1] during the long-day study and 12.1 h [d.sup.-1] during the short-day study.
Nitrogen treatments were supplied as ammonium nitrate at the following rates in the long-day study: 1.2, 2.4, 4.9, and 9.8 g [m.sup.-2] [mo.sup.-1].
The long-day study had a total of four harvests, while the short-day study had a total of three harvests.
The reduced model for shoot growth of FloraDwarf bermudagrass under long-day conditions included only linear effects of N (Table 1; Fig.
