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

Estimating aboveground biomass using Landsat 7 ETM+ data across a managed landscape in northern Wisconsin, USA
Aboveground biomass (AGB; Mg/ha) is defined in this study as a biomass of growing stock trees greater than 2.5 cm in diameter at breast height (dbh) for stands N5 years and all trees taller than 1.3Expand

Homogenization of northern U.S. Great Lakes forests due to land use
Human land use of forested regions has intensified worldwide in recent decades, threatening long-term sustainability. Primary effects include conversion of land cover or reversion to an earlier stageExpand

Linking an ecosystem model and a landscape model to study forest species response to climate warming
No single model can address forest change from single tree to regional scales. We discuss a framework linking an ecosystem process model {LINKAGES) with a spatial landscape model (LANDIS) to examineExpand

A rainforest chronicle: a 30-year record of change in structure and composition at El Verde, Puerto Rico.
Measurements over approximately a 30-year period in a Dacryodes-Sloanea forest indicate two distinctive phases in stand development. Secondary species were common in the early stand (1940's), andExpand

Improved forest classification in the northern Lake States using multi-temporal Landsat imagery
Forest classifications using single date Landsat TM data have been only moderately successful in separating forest cover types in the northern Lake States region. Few regional forest classificationsExpand

Comparing Spatial Pattern in Unaltered Old-Growth and Disturbed Forest Landscapes.
We used geographic information systems (GIS) to analyze the structure of a second-growth forest landscape (9600 ha) that contains scattered old-growth patches. We compared this landscape to a nearby,Expand

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
