The Southern Megalopolis: Using the Past to Predict the Future of Urban Sprawl in the Southeast U.S
TLDR
This work develops simulations using the SLEUTH urban growth model that complement population-driven models but focus on spatial pattern and extent, and extends the capabilities of SLEuth by incorporating street-network information. Expand
TIME-OF-DETECTION METHOD FOR ESTIMATING ABUNDANCE FROM POINT-COUNT SURVEYS
Abstract Point-count surveys are often used to collect data on the abundance and distribution of birds, generally as an index of relative abundance. Valid comparison of these indices assumes that theExpand
Crop Size and Fruit Neighborhood Effects on Bird Visitation to Fruiting Schefflera morototoni Trees in Puerto Rico
TLDR
The results highlight the important effects of local fruiting environments on the ability of individual plants to attract seed dispersers and the relative roles of crop size and fruit neighborhood variables in affecting visitation to focal trees by avian frugivores. Expand
Abundance and growth patterns of Chelonia mydas in Culebra, Puerto Rico
TLDR
It is established that Culebra supports a juvenile green turtle population, and along with those of the U.S. Virgin Islands, confirmed the presence of developmental habitats and maturing populations through the eastern portion of the Puerto Rican Bank. Expand
Additive effects of vertebrate predators on insects in a Puerto Rican coffee plantation.
TLDR
It is suggested that vertebrate insectivores have an additive effect on insects in coffee and may help control abundances of some coffee pests. Expand
Shade-grown coffee in Puerto Rico: Opportunities to preserve biodiversity while reinvigorating a struggling agricultural commodity
Shade-grown coffee contributes to biodiversity conservation and has many ecological benefits. We reviewed historical trends in coffee production and interviewed 100 coffee growers in 1999 toExpand
Integrating multiple data sources in species distribution modeling: a framework for data fusion.
TLDR
Three new models that share information in a less direct manner resulting in more robust performance when the auxiliary data is of lesser quality are developed for combining data sources and used in a case study of the Brown-headed Nuthatch in the Southeastern U.S. Expand
Stopover Duration Analysis with Departure Probability Dependent on Unknown Time Since Arrival
In stopover duration analysis for migratory birds, models with the probability of departure dependent upon time since arrival are useful if the birds are stopping over to replenish body fat. InExpand
Dabbling duck behavior and aircraft activity in coastal North Carolina
Requests to increase military aircraft activity in some training facilities in the United States have prompted the need to determine if waterfowl and other wildlife are adversely affected by aircraftExpand
BREEDING BIRD ABUNDANCE IN BOTTOMLAND HARDWOOD FORESTS: HABITAT, EDGE, AND PATCH SIZE EFFECTS
Abstract We studied breeding bird communities in extensive bottomland hardwood forests along the lower Roanoke River in North Carolina during 1992 and 1993. We documented a rich avian community andExpand
