    • Human-environment interaction on a coastal forest-savanna mosaic in southern Mozambique 

      Shaffer, Laura Jean (uga, 2009-12)
      This research investigates how indigenous Ronga residents of two rural communities (1) use the spatial and temporal heterogeneity of the landscape for livelihood activities and to manage environmental risk; (2) perceive ...
    • Humanitarian crises 

      Darville, Sarah Dean (uga, 2006-08)
      The traditional understanding of NGO decision-making is based primarily on functionalist theory—aid goes where the need is most. However, this research builds on previous research and seeks to identify additional factors, ...
    • Humanitarian literature 

      Highfill, Catherine Owen (uga, 2008-05)
      This thesis investigates the unique condition of Dave Eggers’ and Valentino Achak Deng’s collaboration on the book What is the What. When Eggers, an established American novelist, was introduced to Deng, a Sudanese refugee ...
    • Humorous reappraisal of threat information in advertising 

      Yoon, Hye Jin (uga, 2010-08)
      Studies have often observed the effects of threat persuasion strategies on attitudinal or behavioral changes in advertising. But seldom studied is the potential power of humor in increasing the persuasiveness of the threat ...
    • Hurricane effects on molluscan death assemblages and their facies. 

      Wysong, Eric J. (uga, 2008-05)
      Hurricanes are major agents in sediment transport, but modern coral reef studies indicate that limited transport occurs among molluscan death assemblages. Such studies were largely conducted in environments with partially ...
    • Hybrid literature and hybrid lives 

      Doss, Sarah Harden (uga, 2010-05)
      This study grapples with the questions of Latina identity, specifically as communicated through two adolescent novels, Esperanza Rising and Becoming Naomi León, both written by Pam Muñoz Ryan. This study discusses the ...
    • Hybrid rice as a pro-poor technology? 

      McFall, William Andrew (uga, 2013-08)
      Hybrids are often thought to be generally beneficial due to the benefits offered from higher yield performance. However, in the case of hybrid rice, these yield gains are offset by poor grain quality that reduces the price ...
    • Hyde Farm 

      Owen, Theresa Kate (uga, 2012-08)
      Hyde Farm is located within the Atlanta Metro Region in Cobb County. Managed jointly by Cobb County Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs and the National Park Service, a reactivation of agriculture on this historic farm ...
    • Hydration strategies, nutrition, and health during a lifestyle transition in the Bolivian Amazon 

      Rosinger, Asher Yoel (uga, 2015-05)
      This dissertation research investigated hydration strategies, hydration status, perceptions of the water environment, health, and nutrition among Tsimane’ forager-horticulturalists undergoing lifestyle transitions in the ...
    • Hydrodynamic delivery for cancer and obesity research 

      Alsaggar, Mohammad Hussein (uga, 2016-05)
      Hydrodynamic gene delivery was developed as an efficient and safe method for gene transfer into hepatocytes in mice via tail vein injection. The method then evolved into a versatile procedure to deliver various entities, ...
    • Hydrogen bridging in the compounds X2H (X = AL, SI, P, S) 

      Owens, Zachary Thomas (uga, 2006-12)
      X2H hydrides (X=Al, Si, P, and S) have been investigated using coupled cluster theory with single, double, and triple excitations, the latter incorporated as a perturbative correction [CCSD(T)]. These were performed ...
    • Hydrogen use by bacterial enteric pathogens 

      Zbell, Andrea Lynn (uga, 2008-12)
      Uptake-type hydrogenases catalyze the oxidation of molecular hydrogen in an energy-conserving manner. Many prokaryotes use these hydrogenases in their central metabolism. It has been recently shown that pathogens can use ...
    • Hydrologic and sediment transport response to forest harvest and site preparation in headwater streams 

      Terrell, Scott Benson (uga, 2008-05)
      Best management practices (BMPs) are used in silviculture to reduce the adverse environmental effects of forest harvesting and site preparation. States first developed BMP guidance around 1980, and since then BMPs have ...
    • Hydrologic and soil conditions across hydrogeomorphic settings 

      Pruitt, Bruce Allen (uga, 2001-08)
      Though it is well accepted that hydrology, soil temperature, and soil reducing conditions are critical controlling factors in determining growing season and wetland status, inadequate data exist on regional scales. Even ...
    • Hydrologic transport and fate of Escherichia coli through a southeastern Piedmont watershed 

      Cox, Demetrius (uga, 2003-08)
      Escherichia coli (E. coli) is now the preferred indicator of pathogen loading to public waters. Although Georgia ranks ninth in the nation for pathogen-impaired waters, no E. coli fate and transport models exist for the ...
