Written in a fresh and lively style and supported by a strong analytical framework, the sixth edition of Pearce & Stevens' Trusts and Equitable Obligations continues to provide students with a relevant and exciting examination of a subject that can seem remote and difficult.

Row crop production using conservation tillage farming systems has expanded dramatically in recent years throughout Missouri. No-till systems typically involve minimal soil disturbance in fields where plant residues cover about 90 percent of the soil surface. The conservation and agronomic benefits of no-till are numerous.

This publication provides information about prairie voles and how to prevent them from damaging corn and soybeans.

The intensive physical and mental training was hardly “a day at the beach,” and within a few months, Fort Pierce had become a major military post with a national reputation. It also became the training site of some of the most elite units of the armed forces, including the Scouts and Raiders, U.S. Army Rangers, and the legendary “frogmen.”
