SPATIAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR LINKING WATERSHED LAND COVER TO ECOLOGICAL INDICATORS IN STREAMS
Watershed land cover is widely used as a predictor of stream-ecosystem condition. However, numerous spatial factors can confound the interpretation of correlative analyses between land cover and…
Restoration of the Mississippi Delta: Lessons from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita
Science must guide MDP restoration, which will provide insights into delta restoration elsewhere and generally into coasts facing climate change in times of resource scarcity.
Ecology of woodland herbs in temperate deciduous forests

- 22 November 2004
The literature on the ecology of woodland herbs is reviewed because a number of species have become rare or threatened owing to the conversion of forests to other land uses, competition by alien plant species, and increased abundance of native wildlife that negatively impact woodland herbs.
PLANT‐MEDIATED CONTROLS ON NUTRIENT CYCLING IN TEMPERATE FENS AND BOGS
Patterns in plant-mediated processes that determine the rate of nutrient cycling in temperate fens and bogs are reported on and how the observed patterns were reflected in nutrient cycling at the ecosystem level is explored.
Mycorrhizal diversity in photosynthetic terrestrial orchids.
The genetic diversity of mycorrhizal fungi associated with an evergreen, a spring-green, and a winter-green orchid and compared this diversity with that published for a nonphotosynthetic orchid was compared.

Monitoring of a restored wetland receiving unregulated inflows from a 14-ha agricultural watershed in Maryland, USA found that the variability of inflow may have decreased the capacity of the wetland to remove materials, but it still reduced nonpoint-source pollution.

It is found that large expansions of gene families preceded the origins of green plants, land plants and vascular plants, whereas whole-genome duplications are inferred to have occurred repeatedly throughout the evolution of flowering plants and ferns.
Nitrogen vs. phosphorus limitation across an ecotonal gradient in a mangrove forest
Mangrove forests are characterized by distinctive tree-height gradientsthat reflect complex spatial, within-stand differences in environmentalfactors,including nutrient dynamics, salinity, and tidal…
Decomposition and mass of woody detritus in the dry tropical forests of the Northeastern Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
The wide range in decomposition rates observed in these forests indicates that the poor substrate quality of some species may override climatic and biotic factors favorable to rapid decomposition, leading to a substantial accumulation of woody detritus.

This model of Phragmites establishment and reproduction describes the invasion as a symptom of watershed-scale land use and disturbance and advocates more holistic approaches to control and management that focus on improving water quality and minimizing human disturbance to deter future invasion and improve resilience of native plant communities.
