Edge Influence on Forest Structure and Composition in Fragmented Landscapes
Although forest edges have been studied extensively as an important consequence of fragmenta- tion, a unifying theory of edge influence has yet to be developed. Our objective was to take steps towardExpand
Microclimate in Forest Ecosystem and Landscape Ecology
Microclimate is the suite of climatic conditions measured in localized areas near the earth's surface (Geiger 1965). These environmental variables, which include temperature, light, windspeed, andExpand
Microclimate in Forest Ecosystem and Landscape Ecology Variations in local climate can be used to monitor and compare the effects of different management regimes
M icroclimate is the suite of climatic conditions measured in localized areas near the earth's surface (Geiger 1965). These environmental variables, which include temperature, light, wind speed, andExpand
Canopy Gaps and the Landscape Mosaic in a Coastal Temperate Rain Forest
TLDR
These general trends in gap-phase structure and gap formation processes are consistent with data on gaps and forest age structure collected elsewhere on the British Columbia coast, suggesting that a regime of small-scale, low-intensity disturbance is common in the old-growth forests of coastal British Columbia.

Characterizing historical and modern fire regimes in Michigan (USA): A landscape ecosystem approach
We studied the relationships of landscape ecosystems to historical and contemporary fire regimes across 4.3 million hectares in northern lower Michigan (USA). Changes in fire regimes were documentedExpand
Effects of roads on landscape structure within nested ecological units of the Northern Great Lakes Region, USA
Road development is a primary mechanism of fragmentation in the northern Great Lakes Region, removing original land cover, creating edge habitat, altering landscape structure and function, andExpand
Modeling temperature gradients across edges over time in a managed landscape
Landscape management requires an understanding of the distribution of habitat patches in space and time. Regions of edge influence can form dominant components of both managed and naturally patchyExpand
Identifying scales of pattern in ecological data: a comparison of lacunarity, spectral and wavelet analyses
Abstract Identifying scales of pattern in ecological systems and coupling patterns to processes that create them are ongoing challenges. We examined the utility of three techniques (lacunarity,Expand
Hierarchical relationships between landscape structure and temperature in a managed forest landscape
Management may influence abiotic environments differently across time and spatial scale, greatly influencing perceptions of fragmentation of the landscape. It is vital to consider a priori theExpand
