Function, Design, and Establishment of Riparian Forest Buffers: A Review
(Virginia Tech, 1999-02-08)
Through the interaction of their soils, hydrology, and biotic communities, riparian forests protect and improve water quality, provide habitat for plants and animals, support aquatic communities, and provide many benefits ...
Fertilization and Woody Plant Nutrition in the Context of the Urban Forest
(Virginia Tech, 1998-10-05)
Fertilization of urban trees is often based on traditional forestry objectives. These objectives and resultant attributes may not be desired in urban trees. The majority of research and the ensuing recommendations regarding ...
Global patterns of lake ice phenology and climate: Model simulations and observations
(American Geophysical Union, 1998-11-27)
Lake ice phenology parameters (dates of ice onset and thaw) provide an integrative climatic description of autumn to springtime conditions. Interannual variations in lake ice duration and thickness allow estimates of local ...
Developing a Natural Resource Database for Geographic Information System
(Virginia Tech, 1997-03-13)
Geographic information systems ( GIS ) are an effective tool for land management. By studying the land formations and land cover of a site, much information about the tree and animal species inhabiting a site can be ...
Potential for identifying changes in land cover in Nepal using satellite imagery
(Virginia Tech, 1993)
A description of floral diversity in the southern Appalachians with forest management considerations for conservation
(Virginia Tech, 1994-05-04)
Biological diversity is the variety of plant and animal life, habitats and ecosystems, and the biological processes and functions within them. It is this simple yet profoundly important concept in biology which in recent ...
An evaluation of potential planning processes for national parks in Malaysia
(Virginia Tech, 1990)
Sampling-Skewed Biological Populations: Behavior of Confidence Intervals for the Population Total
(Ecological Society of America, 1999-04)
Four populations were repeatedly sampled with the aim of examining interval estimation of the cumulative amount, T, of some characteristic that has a positively skewed distribution, a feature of many biological populations. ...
Spatial and Temporal Variation in Soil and Vegetation Impacts on Campsites
(Ecological Society of America, 1996-05)
We studied the impacts of camping on soil and vegetation at Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. We assessed the magnitude of impact on campsites that varied in amount of use and in topographic position. We also ...
Accuracy of Visible and Ultraviolet Light for Estimating Live Root Proportions with Minirhizotrons
(Ecological Society of America, 1995-10)
