Natural Vegetation of Oregon and Washington
Revised edition of the author's "Vegetation of Oregon and Washington", originally published by the U.S. Forest Service in 1973. Reprinted with new bibliographic supplement by the OSU Press in 1988.
The Report of the Ecological Society of America Committee on the Scientific Basis for Ecosystem Management
Ecosystem management is management driven by explicit goals, executed by policies, protocols, and practices, and made adaptable by monitoring and research based on our best understanding of the
Widespread Increase of Tree Mortality Rates in the Western United States
Analysis of longitudinal data from unmanaged old forests in the western United States showed that background (noncatastrophic) mortality rates have increased rapidly in recent decades, with doubling periods ranging from 17 to 29 years among regions.
Conserving Forest Biodiversity: A Comprehensive Multiscaled Approach
While most efforts at biodiversity conservation have focused primarily on protected areas and reserves, the unprotected lands surrounding those areas - the "matrix" - are equally important to
Coarse Woody Debris in Douglas-Fir Forests of Western Oregon and Washington
The results of the study indicate that a steady—state condition in CWD may not be reached for >1000 yr, and that the nature and timing of disturbance play a key role in the dynamics of CWD in the region.
Growing‐Season Microclimatic Gradients from Clearcut Edges into Old‐Growth Douglas‐Fir Forests
Overall, gradients generally were longest and steepest on partially clear, warm, dry days, at southwest-facing edges, and for air temperature, soil temperature, and relative humidity; influence of local weather conditions on gradients was highly variable.
The forgotten stage of forest succession: early-successional ecosystems on forest sites
Early-successional forest ecosystems that develop after stand-replacing or partial disturbances are diverse in species, processes, and structure. Post-disturbance ecosystems are also often rich in
