PhD Oral Defense of Jamshid Rahimi, Department of Bioresource Engineering

Effects of batter formulation, pre-drying time and pre-heating temperature on surface characteristics and microstructure of fried batter using scanning electron microscopy and image processing techniques were investigated. The study also evaluated different fractions of inter-particle spaces of fried batter when occupied by air, moisture and fat. The effects of the parameters on porosity and mass transfer of fried batter were also studied.

PhD Oral Defense of Alberto Prado, Department of Plant Science

Cycad plants protect all their tissues with a group of toxic metabolites, called azoxyglycosides (AZGs). Only specialist herbivores can feed on the cycad foliage. We describe phenological changes in leaf structure and toxicity in the Panamanian cycad Zamia stevensonii which correlate with patterns of activity and herbivory by specialist insects.
