Variability in net primary production and carbon storage in biomass across Oregon forests—an assessment integrating data from forest inventories, intensive sites, and remote sensing
We used a combination of data from USDA Forest Service inventories, intensive chronosequences, extensive sites, and satellite remote sensing, to estimate biomass and net primary production (NPP) forExpand

Carryover aquatic effects on survival of metamorphic frogs during pond emigration.
In organisms with complex life cycles, physiological stressors during early life stages may have fitness-level impacts that are delayed into later stages or habitats. We tested the hypothesis thatExpand

Use of Aliphatic n-Alkynes To Discriminate Soil Nitrification Activities of Ammonia-Oxidizing Thaumarchaea and Bacteria
ABSTRACT Ammonia (NH3)-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and thaumarchaea (AOA) co-occupy most soils, yet no short-term growth-independent method exists to determine their relative contributions toExpand

Prediction of understory vegetation cover with airborne lidar in an interior ponderosa pine forest
Abstract Forest understory communities are important components in forest ecosystems providing wildlife habitat and influencing nutrient cycling, fuel loadings, fire behavior and tree speciesExpand

Effects of Transportation and Other Factors on Survival Estimates of Juvenile Salmonids in the Unimpounded Lower Columbia River
Abstract We estimated the survival of juvenile salmonids out-migrating through the lower Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean. We tested the null hypotheses that no association exists between survivalExpand

Linking multidimensional functional diversity to quantitative methods: a graphical hypothesis--evaluation framework.
Functional trait analysis is an appealing approach to study differences among biological communities because traits determine species' responses to the environment and their impacts on ecosystemExpand

Spatial designs and properties of spatial correlation: Effects on covariance estimation
In a spatial regression context, scientists are often interested in a physical interpretation of components of the parametric covariance function. For example, spatial covariance parameter estimatesExpand

Use of a smoother to forecast occurrence of epiphytic lichens under alternative forest management plans
We used habitat models to forecast the frequency of occurrence of epiphytic lichen species in a forested landscape under two alternative plans: a literal application of standard prescriptions in theExpand

Individual variation affects departure rate from the natal pond in an ephemeral pond-breeding anuran
Frogs exhibit extreme plasticity and individual variation in growth and behavior during metamorphosis, driven by interactions of intrinsic state factors and extrinsic environmental factors. InExpand

Trends in the surface meridional temperature gradient
Given the presence of a meridional temperature gradient (MTG) across midlatitudes, large-scale eddies transport heat poleward, thereby shaping Earth's climate. Defining an MTG index here as theExpand
