Diving to 4,500 meters, Alvin allowed us to reach 63 percent of the ocean; we wanted to reach 98 percent," said Dan Fornari, chief scientist for the NDSF
from 1993 to 2004.

The objectives of this study were to: (i) estimate the realized direct response from one cycle of bidirectional phenotypic selection for NDSF concentration, (ii) evaluate association of NDSF concentration with other forage quality traits, and (iii) determine the impact of selection for NDSF concentration on IVDMD of alfalfa.
Unidirectional or bidirectional selection for pectin concentration, estimated by NDSF concentration, was applied to five alfalfa experimental populations: NY9515, NY9916, NY9913, NY9915, and NY0042.
Estimates of the instantaneous rate of total mortality (Z) were obtained from catch-at-age data from the NDSF.
Pristipomoides multidens were fully recruited to the commercial fishery in the NDSF by age 6.
If only $12 billion per annum flowed into the NDSF
it could soon transform the state of our social infrastructure, raise productivity and increase economic growth and employment.
No information is available on estimating NDSF
in alfalfa for breeding purposes.
