Predicting current and potential species distributions and abundance is critical for managing invasive species, preserving threatened and endangered species, and conserving native species and habitats. Accurate predictive models are needed at local, regional, and national scales to guide field surveys, improve monitoring, and set priorities for conservation(More)
southwestern United States are being altered by the rapid invasion of Tamarix species. Introduced from Eurasia in the early 1800s for erosion control, windbreaks, and ornamentation, Tamarix was acclaimed for its ability to withstand drought, heat, and diverse soil conditions (Carleton 1914, DiTomaso 1998). These views began to change by the mid-1900s as(More)
HIGH EFFICIENCY THERMOELECTRIC DEVICES FABRICATED USING QUANTUM WELL CONFINEMENT TECHNIQUES Experimental results are presented of thermoelectric materials, specifically two-dimensional quantum well confinement structures, formed by ion beam sputter deposition methods. Applications of these thermoelectric devices include nearly any system that generates heat(More)
