Diversity-invasibility across an experimental disturbance gradient in Appalachian forests
(Ecological Society of America, 2008-01)
Research examining the relationship between community diversity and invasions by normative species has raised new questions about the theory and management of biological invasions. Ecological theory predicts, and small-scale ...
Effect of Fluid Shear Stress on Endocytosis of Heparan Sulfate and Low-density Lipoproteins
Hemodynamic stress is a critical factor in the onset of atherosclerosis such that reduced rates of shear stress occurring at regions of high curvature are more prone to disease. The level of shear stress has direct influence ...
Edaphic and climatic effects on forest stand development, net primary production, and net ecosystem productivity simulated for Coastal Plain loblolly pine in Virginia
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-01-11)
We used SECRETS-3PG to simulate net primary production (NPP) and net ecosystem productivity (NEP) of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) growing on the Virginia Coastal Plain, focusing on the effects of soils and climate, and ...
