LEAF CASTING ON THE SUCTION TABLE

Robert Futernick



ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

THE SUCCESS of this project was dependent on the help and patience of all the people in our laboratory, namely Pauline Mohr, Patricia Morris, Linda Odgen, Sylvia Rodgers, and Janice Mae Schopfer. Special acknowledgement goes to Keiko Keyes. It was through several meetings with Keiko that the original concept was refined and simplified. Finally, this paper became much more readable after the careful attention of Jennifer Futernick.
