In this context, action researchers partner directly with stakeholders (communities, governance institutions, and work resource managers, etc.) to embed a complexity frame of(More)
In this study, dose prediction accuracy of Acuros XB (AXB) dose calculation algorithm beyond air gap thickness (range 2, 4, and 6 cm) in simple inhomogeneous phantoms was investigated. The evaluation of AXB was performed by comparing the doses calculated by AXB with the doses calculated by Anisotropic Analytical Algorithm (AAA) and the measured data for(More)
Michael Young has been a Research Fisheries Biologist with the USDA Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station since 1989. His work focuses on the ecology and conservation of native coldwater fishes and the effects of natural and anthropogenic disturbance on stream ecosystems. Status Greenback cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii stomias) was once(More)
Savannas are heterogeneous systems characterized by the coexistence of grasses and woody trees. Riparian zones are dynamic parts of savanna landscapes with structurally diverse woody vegetation. Growing recognition of the importance of the structural component of biodiversity has highlighted the need to understand the spatial distribution and temporal(More)
