Thermal-treated carbons from acorn and cypress cone were prepared and characterized. The uptakes of heavy metal ions (Ag+, Cd2+ and Cr+3) and organics (phenol, methylene blue and sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate) from aqueous solution have been studied. Effects of activation by HCl and HNO3 acids on the sorption properties of these carbons were investigated by mass titration, sorption isotherms, IRS, SEM and XRS. The models of Langmuir and Freundlich do not represent our sorption data very well. An earlier proposed empirical correlation is applied successfully to carry out a parameter of comparison between the studied carbons. The acidic treatment changes the surface chemical properties of the two thermal-treated carbons lowering their sorption performances. The carbons show good capacities to uptake metals, phenol and methylene blue, but sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate is removed from its solutions to minor extent. The up-taking properties are found similar to those of two worldwide used commercial grade carbons.

the branch. We found that the rats' skill in extracting seeds from the closed pine cone, and their ability to survive on pine seeds as a major food source, is not a genetic trait ; rather, the skill is passed on from mother to offspring through a process of cultural transmission (Aisner and Terkel 1985). The technique of obtaining cypress cone seeds is relatively simple due to NOTES 309 the simple arrangement of the cone scales. The rat gnaws away the sides of the cones until the small seeds are exposed and then feeds on them. Rats of both subpopulations were

It was logged heavily in the 20th century; the wood is light and very decay-resistant. Some trees on the Gulf coastal plain have been assigned to subsp. henryae (Li H.L.) E.

when I heard my own footsteps I stopped. Something astringent and unsatisfied remained in my mouth, dissolved in my saliva by all this black uncertainty, as though I had bitten into a cypress cone.
