Validating satellite phenology through intensive ground observation and landscape scaling in a mixed seasonal forest
Phenology is a key component of monitoring terrestrial ecosystem variations in response to global climate change. Satellite-measured land surface phenology (LSP) has been widely used to assess largeExpand

Biogeomorphic Impacts of Invasive Species
Invasive species, often recognized as ecosystem engineers, can dramatically alter geomorphic processes and landforms. Our review shows that the biogeomorphic impacts of invasive species are common,Expand

Evidence for Increasing Red Maple Abundance in the Eastern United States
Red maple (Acer rubrum L.) is widely believed to be increasing in abundance in eastern North America, but most evidence is anecdotal or localized. In this article we present analyses of FIA data setsExpand

Typing of Helicobacter pylori with monoclonal antibodies against Lewis antigens in lipopolysaccharide.
Recently, it has been shown that the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) O antigen of Helicobacter pylori contains Lewis x (Lex), Lewis y (Ley), or both Lex and Ley antigens. We applied a serotyping method forExpand

Change in oak abundance in the eastern United States from 1980 to 2008
Although oaks (Quercus spp.) have historically dominated much of the forest land in eastern North America, a great deal of fragmentary and sometimes anecdotal evidence suggests that they have beenExpand

Divergence of the potential invasion range of emerald ash borer and its host distribution in North America under climate change
Climate change is likely to induce range divergence of invasive herbivore insects and native host trees given their different response rates to temperature increase. In this study we used theExpand

Spatial habitat modeling of American chestnut at Mammoth Cave National Park
The American chestnut (Castanea dentata) was historically one of the most important trees in forests of the eastern U.S., but it was severely decimated by chestnut blight (Cryphonectria parasitica).Expand
