Integration of CO 2 flux and remotely-sensed data for primary production and ecosystem respiration analyses in the Northern Great Plains: potential for quantitative spatial extrapolation
Long-term measurements at five Northern Great Plains locations were used to obtain relationships between CO 2 fluxes and photosynthetically active radiation ( Q ), other on-site factors, and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index ( NDVI) from the SPOT VEGETATION data set.
Carbon Fluxes on North American Rangelands
Abstract Rangelands account for almost half of the earth's land surface and may play an important role in the global carbon (C) cycle. We studied net ecosystem exchange (NEE) of C on eight North…
Interactive Effects of Drought and Grazing on Northern Great Plains Rangelands
Abstract Drought is common in rangeland environments and an understanding of its impacts on the structure and function of rangeland ecosystems is paramount for developing effective management…
Calving system and weaning age effects on cow and preweaning calf performance in the Northern Great Plains.
It is concluded that season of calving and weaning age affect outputs from rangeland-based beef cattle operations.

It is concluded that growth potential of sire for suckling calves and steers and cow size for cows affected intake of rangeland forage in summer but did not affect efficiency of production from Northern Great Plains rangelands.
Vegetation Biomass Dynamics and Patterns of Sexual Reproduction in a Northern Mixed-Grass Prairie
Although community-level seed production and seedling establishment processes were dominated by B. japonicus, the overwhelming presence of herbage produced by the two vegetative propagating species casts doubt on a trend in ecological succession toward an annual grass-dominated community.
Comparative water relations in Artemisia tridentata Nutt. subsp. wyomingensis and Kochia prostrata (L.) Schrad.
Adaptive data-driven models for estimating carbon fluxes in the Northern Great Plains
Grazing Effects on Carbon Dynamics in the Northern Mixed-Grass Prairie
The role of rangelands in the regulation of atmospheric CO2 concentrations is a critical issue in global climate change research. Rangelands are complex ecosystems that occupy about 50% of the land…
