Complexity of Coupled Human and Natural Systems
TLDR
Integrated studies of coupled human and natural systems reveal new and complex patterns and processes not evident when studied by social or natural scientists separately. Expand
The Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System model for evaluating herd nutrition and nutrient excretion
The Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System (CNCPS) is a mathematical model that estimates cattle requirements and nutrient supply based on animal, environmental, and feed compositionalExpand
A mechanistic model for predicting the nutrient requirements and feed biological values for sheep.
The Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System (CNCPS), a mechanistic model that predicts nutrient requirements and biological values of feeds for cattle, was modified for use with sheep. PublishedExpand
Analysis of condensed tannins: a review
Plant condensed tannins (proanthocyanidins, PAs) have both positive and negative effects on feed digestibility and animal performance, depending both on the quantity and biological activity of theExpand
Kinetics of fiber digestion from in vitro gas production.
In vitro gas production, measured by computer-interfaced pressure sensors, was used to follow the digestion of a crystalline processed cellulose, a bacterial cellulose, and mixtures of theseExpand
Coupled Human and Natural Systems
TLDR
In this article, we synthesize major characteristics of complex couplings ( organizational levels), spatial, temporal, and temporal couplings of coupled human and natural systems (CHANS) and discuss their implications. Expand
Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System: A model for precision feeding of dairy cattle
The Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System (CNCPS) predicts cattle requirements and nutrient supply for site-specific situations. This paper describes the CNCPS version 6 (CNCPSv6), whichExpand
Computerized monitoring of gas production to measure forage digestion in vitro.
The techniques reported in this paper were developed to facilitate the study of the kinetics of forage digestion in vitro by measuring gas production. Fiber disappearance as a measure of the reactionExpand
Prediction of ruminal volatile fatty acids and pH within the net carbohydrate and protein system.
A steady-state model of the production, absorption, passage, and concentration of ruminal VFA and pH is developed from published literature data and is structured to use the feed descriptions andExpand
