Intercomparison, interpretation, and assessment of spring phenology in North America estimated from remote sensing for 1982-2006
Shifts in the timing of spring phenology are a central feature of global change research. Long-term observations of plant phenology have been used to track vegetation responses to climate variabilityExpand

Seasonal patterns and environmental control of carbon dioxide and water vapour exchange in an ecotonal boreal forest
Carbon dioxide, water vapour, and sensible heat fluxes were measured above and within a spruce dominated forest near the southern ecotone of the boreal forest in Maine, USA.

Influence of spring phenology on seasonal and annual carbon balance in two contrasting New England forests.
Spring phenology is thought to exert a major influence on the carbon (C) balance of temperate and boreal ecosystems. We investigated this hypothesis using four spring onset phenological indicators inExpand

A comparison of the catchment sizes of rivers, streams, ponds, ditches and lakes: implications for protecting aquatic biodiversity in an agricultural landscape
In this study we compared the biodiversity of five waterbody types (ditches, lakes, ponds, rivers and streams) within an agricultural study area in lowland England to assess their relativeExpand

Estimating parameters of a forest ecosystem C model with measurements of stocks and fluxes as joint constraints
We conducted an inverse modeling analysis, using a variety of data streams (tower-based eddy covariance measurements of net ecosystem exchange, NEE, of CO2, chamber-based measurements of soilExpand

The role of GIS in landscape assessment: using land-use-based criteria for an area of the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Abstract Landscape is increasingly under pressure from developments, and landscape assessment programmes offer the opportunity to monitor changes. These programmes have the advantage of reducing theExpand

Estimating regional carbon exchange in New England and Quebec by combining atmospheric, ground-based and satellite data
We derive regional-scale (∼104 km2) CO2 flux estimates for summer 2004 in the northeast United States and southern Quebec by assimilating extensive data into a receptor-oriented model-data fusionExpand

Identifying optimum locations for new ponds
1.Pond ecological quality is influenced by surrounding land uses. Continued intensification of land use has led to a progressive decline in the ecological quality of the pond stock within Britain. Expand

Changes in Carbon Storage and Net Carbon Exchange One Year After an Initial Shelterwood Harvest at Howland Forest, ME
Although many forests are actively sequestering carbon, little research has examined the direct effects of forest management practices on carbon sequestration. At the Howland Forest in Maine, USA, weExpand

A multi-criteria targeting approach to neutral grassland conservation.
Resources for creating and managing rare habitats are limited, and a targeting approach aimed at identifying the most viable sites for habitat conservation is therefore desirable. This studyExpand
