Extinction debt of high-mountain plants under twenty-first-century climate change
Quantitative estimates of the range loss of mountain plants under climate change have so far mostly relied on static geographical projections of species’ habitat shifts 1‐3 . Here, we use a hybridExpand
The artificial catchment "Chicken Creek" (Lusatia, Germany) - a landscape laboratory for interdisciplinary studies of initial ecosystem development.
Abstract The analysis of water and element cycling plays a key role in understanding ecosystems. The definition of clearly outlined budget areas is necessary therefore and is usually approached byExpand
Traditional and Local Ecological Knowledge About Forest Biodiversity in the Pacific Northwest
Charnley, Susan; Fischer, A. Paige; Jones, Eric T. 2008. Traditional and local ecological knowledge about forest biodiversity in the Pacific Northwest. Gen. Tech. Rep. PNW-GTR-751. Portland, OR: U.S.Expand
Elevated NH3 and NO2 air concentrations and nitrogen deposition rates in the vicinity of a highway in Southern Bavaria
Abstract A transect study consisting of air concentration and deposition measurements of nitrogen compounds was performed to estimate the potential influence of car emissions on the nitrogen input toExpand
Reducing Hazardous Fuels on Nonindustrial Private Forests: Factors Influencing Landowner Decisions
In mixed-ownership landscapes, fuels conditions on private lands have implications for fire risk on public lands and vice versa. The success of efforts to mitigate fire risk depends on the extent,Expand
Vegetation dynamics in central european forest ecosystems (near-natural as well as managed) after storm events
All over the world forests and woodlands are damaged or reset to initial stages by fire, insect outbreaks or storms. In Central Europe storm events are the most important natural disturbancesExpand
Risk and Cooperation: Managing Hazardous Fuel in Mixed Ownership Landscapes
It is found that NIPF owners who perceived a risk of wildfire to their properties, and perceived that conditions on nearby public forestlands contributed to this risk, were more likely to have cooperated with public agencies in the past to reduce fire risk than owners who did not perceive a risk.

Relative Quantitative Reference Approach for Naturalness Assessments of forests
Naturalness assessments are required for the evaluation of conservation schemes and programmes such as large-scale IUCN protected areas (National Parks) where nature restoration is a main managementExpand
Identifying policy target groups with qualitative and quantitative methods: The case of wildfire risk on nonindustrial private forest lands
Designing policies to harness the potential of heterogeneous target groups such as nonindustrial private forest owners to contribute to public policy goals can be challenging. The behaviors of suchExpand
