The Role of Habitat Complexity and Heterogeneity in Structuring Tropical Mammal Communities
The relationship between mammal community structure and vertical variation in habitat physiognomy (complexity) and horizontal variation in habitat form (heterogeneity) was examined on five studyExpand

Coastal Lagoons and Climate Change: Ecological and Social Ramifications in U.S. Atlantic and Gulf Coast Ecosystems
Lagoons are highly productive coastal features that provide a range of natural services that society values. Their setting within the coastal landscape leaves them especially vulnerable to profoundExpand

The Influence of Geomorphological Heterogeneity on Biodiversity I. A Patch‐Scale Perspective
Landscapes composed of spatially heterogeneous abiotic conditions should provide a greater diver- sity of potential niches for plants and animals than do homogeneous landscapes. We tested thisExpand

The Influence of Geomorphological Heterogeneity on Biodiversity : II . A Landscape Perspective
The influence of geomorphological heterogeneity on vascular plant species richness was studied in 26 Rhode Island Audubon refuges ranging in size from 1.4 to 58.6 ha. Indices of abiotic heterogeneityExpand

A geospatial approach for assessing denitrification sinks within lower-order catchments
Abstract Local decision makers can influence land use practices that alter N loading and processing within the drainage basin of lower-order stream reaches. Because many practices reduce waterExpand

Assessing the Accuracy of National Land Cover Dataset Area Estimates at Multiple Spatial Extents
Site-specific accuracy assessments evaluate fine-scale accuracy of land-use/land-cover (LULC) datasets but provide little insight into accuracy of area estimates of LULC classes derived from samplingExpand

Estimation of Land Surface Temperature Using Spatial Interpolation and Satellite-Derived Surface Emissivity
This study presents a method to estimate land surface temperature (LST) by calibrating spatial interpolation using satellite-derived surface emissivity. Four spatial interpolation methods includingExpand
