Papers published in Hydrology and Earth System Sciences Discussions are under open-access review for the journal Hydrology and Earth System Sciences Abstract Predicting discharge in ungauged catchments requires knowledge on the distribution and spatial heterogeneity of hydrological soil properties. Because hydrological soil information is not available on a(More)
Organic farming is promoted to reduce environmental impacts of agriculture, but surprisingly little is known about its effects at the farm level, the primary unit of decision making. Here we report the effects of organic farming on species diversity at the field, farm and regional levels by sampling plants, earthworms, spiders and bees in 1470 fields of 205(More)
Studies of animal behavior are crucial to understanding animal-ecosystem interactions, but require substantial efforts in visual observation or sensor measurement. We investigated how classifying behavioral states of grazing livestock using global positioning data alone depends on the classification approach, the preselection of training data, and the(More)
BACKGROUND In order to understand the impact of grazing livestock on pasture ecosystems, it is essential to quantify pasture use intensity at a fine spatial scale and the factors influencing its distribution. The observation and analysis of animal activity is greatly facilitated by remote tracking technology and new statistical frameworks allowing for rapid(More)
In manipulation tasks interaction forces are often decomposed to be able to control robustness-reflective and accelerating forces separately. While this decomposition is typically performed for the synthesis of interaction forces to be applied for example in the context of robotic grasping, less attention has been paid to the analysis of measured, human(More)
