Edge Influence on Forest Structure and Composition in Fragmented Landscapes
Although forest edges have been studied extensively as an important consequence of fragmenta- tion, a unifying theory of edge influence has yet to be developed. Our objective was to take steps towardExpand
Disturbances and structural development of natural forest ecosystems with silvicultural implications, using Douglas-fir forests as an example
Forest managers need a comprehensive scientific understanding of natural stand development processes when designing silvicultural systems that integrate ecological and economic objectives, includingExpand
Modeling and measuring the effects of disturbance history and climate on carbon and water budgets in evergreen needleleaf forests
The effects of disturbance history, climate, and changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration and nitrogen deposition (Ndep) on carbon and water fluxes in seven North American evergreenExpand
Global patterns of land-atmosphere fluxes of carbon dioxide, latent heat, and sensible heat derived from eddy covariance, satellite, and meteorological observations
We upscaled FLUXNET observations of carbon dioxide, water, and energy fluxes to the global scale using the machine learning technique, model tree ensembles (MTE). We trained MTE to predict site-levelExpand
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. Expand
Microclimate in Forest Ecosystem and Landscape Ecology
Microclimate is the suite of climatic conditions measured in localized areas near the earth's surface (Geiger 1965). These environmental variables, which include temperature, light, windspeed, andExpand
Estimating aboveground biomass using Landsat 7 ETM+ data across a managed landscape in northern Wisconsin, USA
Aboveground biomass (AGB; Mg/ha) is defined in this study as a biomass of growing stock trees greater than 2.5 cm in diameter at breast height (dbh) for stands N5 years and all trees taller than 1.3Expand
Recent decline in the global land evapotranspiration trend due to limited moisture supply
An estimate of global land evapotranspiration from 1982 to 2008 is provided using a global monitoring network, meteorological and remote-sensing observations, and a machine-learning algorithm, which suggests that increasing soil-moisture limitations on evapOTranspiration largely explain the recent decline of the global land-evapotranpiration trend.

Vegetation Responses to Edge Environments in Old-Growth Douglas-Fir Forests.
Responses of stocking density, growth, mortality, and regeneration for three conifer species from the clear-cut edge into the interior of old-growth forest patches adjacent to 10-15 yr old clearcuts in southern Washington and central Oregon are described. Expand
Contrasting microclimates among clearcut, edge, and interior of old-growth Douglas-fir forest
Abstract Clearcut, remnant old-growth forest patch, and edge are the three primary landscape elements in northwestern North America. Microclimatic information on this forest landscape is needed forExpand
