Woody tissue maintenance respiration of four conifers in contrasting climates
The fraction of annual net daytime carbon fixation used for stem maintenance respiration increased linearly with the average annual temperature of the site, and that of aboveground woody tissues of these conifers consumes 52–162 g C m−2 y−1 annually.
Soil CO2 evolution in Florida slash pine plantations. I: Changes through time
For a range of forest sites, soil CO2 evolution rates and the magnitude and direction of changes after harvesting show latitudinal variation that probably depends not only on the amount of C contained in dead organic matter in the soil and its decomposition rate but also on the treatment of slash left after harvesting.
Carbon exchange of a mature, naturally regenerated pine forest in north Florida
We used eddy covariance and biomass measurements to quantify the carbon (C) dynamics of a naturally regenerated longleaf pine/slash pine flatwoods ecosystem in north Florida for 4 years, July 2000 to…
Litterfall, Decomposition, and Nitrogen and Phosphorus Dynamics in a Chronosequence of Slash Pine (Pinus elliottii) Plantations
The influence of salinity on seagrass growth, survivorship, and distribution within Biscayne Bay, Florida: Field, experimental, and modeling studies
We evaluate if the distribution and abundance ofThalassia testudinum, Syringodium filiforme, andHalodule wrightii within Biscayne Bay, Florida, are influenced by salinity regimes using, a combination…
Dynamics of Canopy Structure and Light Interception in Pinus Elliottii Stands, North Florida
In order to develop a model of the carbon cycle for mature slash pine (Pinus elliottii) stands in north Florida, we studied seasonal variation in leaf area index (LAI, all- sided), aboveground…
Organic matter dynamics of fine roots in plantations of slash pine (Pinuselliottii) in north Florida
Seasonal patterns of live, dead, and unknown viability fine roots of pine and other vegetation in a young and old slash pine stand were sampled using monthly soil coring over a 24-month period to construct organic matter budgets for the forest floor and soil.

Planted pine forests (plantations) in the southeastern United States are an important component of the continent's carbon balance. Forest carbon dynamics are affected by a range of factors including…
Population Dynamics of the Dioecious Amazonian Palm Mauritia flexuosa: Simulation Analysis of Sustainable Harvesting
This study investigated the population dynamics of this important palm, the effects of harvesting, and suggested sustainable harvesting regimes, and demonstrated a continuum of sustainable harvesting schedules for various intensities and frequencies for 100 yr of harvest.
Adaptive clustering of airborne LiDAR data to segment individual tree crowns in managed pine forests
An adaptive clustering method is developed using airborne LiDAR data acquired over two distinctly different managed pine forests in North-Central Florida, USA that works directly on the three-dimensional ‘cloud’ ofLiDAR points and adapts to irregular canopies sizes.
