Physical Properties of Snow
As demonstrated in the previous chapter, snow interacts strongly with the global climate system, both influencing and forming as a result of this system. The following chapters discuss the
Otolith strontium traces environmental history of subyearling American shad Alosa sapidissima
Sagittal otoliths of young-of-year American shad Alosa sapidjssirna from the Hudson River estuary, New York, USA, were transected with an X-ray-dispersive microprobe to examine temporal patterns of
Altitude zonation in the Pyrenees . A geobotanic interpretation
We present a review of the main trends of vegetation zonation in the entire Pyrenean mountain system, including previous overviews and a great many papers on flora and vegetation. The main floristic
Remote Sensing Inland Wetlands: A Multispectral Approach
Airborne Multispectral Scanner (MSS) data, large-scale aerial photography, and Landsat MSS and Thematic Mapper (TM) data were used to map a variety of wetland conditions along the Savannah River
Changes in Thickness of Forest Litter under Chemical Pollution
As the distance between a copper-smelting plant and the forests surrounding it decreases, the thickness of the forest litter increases twoto threefold, depending upon elimination of the saprophages
COOPERATIVE BREEDING BEHAVIOR IN THE WHITE-BROWED SPARROW WEAVER
--We observed color-banded individuals of Plocepasser mahali, the White-browed Sparrow Weaver (Ploceidae), in Kenya during dry and rainy periods. Colonies usually consisted of five or six birds that
Introduction : Major Issues of Feeding Motor Control in Vertebrates
The study of motor control is one of the most active areas of research in feeding functional morphology. As many of the muscles responsible for controlling feeding behavior are large and superficial,
On Shear-Generated Gravity Waves that Reach the Mesosphere. Part I: Wave Generation
A long unresolved issue in nonorographic gravity wave generation is whether there is significant emission from Kelvin–Helmholtz (KH) shear instability in the lower stratosphere, for instance, just
LIVING WITH SUCCESS: RESEARCH NEEDS FOR AN EXPANDING BROWN BEAR POPULATION
There were about 4,000-5,000 brown bears (Ursus arctos) on the Scandinavian Peninsula around 1850; 65% were in Norway, which had the densest population. Apparently because of overexploitation,
