Differing Levels of Forestry Best Management Practices at Stream Crossing Structures Affect Sediment Delivery and Installation Costs
Forestry best management practices (BMPs) are used to reduce sedimentation from forest streamcrossings. Three BMP treatments (BMP , BMP-std, and BMP+) were applied to three forest road stream crossings (bridge, culvert, ...
Implementation of Forestry Best Management Practices on Biomass and Conventional Harvesting Operations in Virginia
Logging residues are often utilized as a Best Management Practice (BMP) for stabilizing bare soil on forest harvesting operations. As utilization of woody biomass increases, concern has developed regarding availability of ...
Understanding the Fate of Applied Nitrogen in Pine Plantations of the Southeastern United States Using 15N Enriched Fertilizers
This study was conducted to determine the efficacy of using enhanced efficiency fertilizer (EEFs) products compared to urea to improve fertilizer nitrogen use efficiency (FNUE) in forest plantations. All fertilizer treatments ...
Soil CO2 Efflux and Root Productivity in a Switchgrass and Loblolly Pine Intercropping System
Switchgrass intercropped with loblolly pine plantations can provide valuable feedstock for bioenergy production while providing ancillary benefits like controlling competing vegetation and enhancing soil C. Better understanding ...

Brazil's Market for Trading Forest Certificates
Brazil faces an enormous challenge to implement its revised Forest Code. Despite big losses for the environment, the law introduces new mechanisms to facilitate compliance and foster payment for ecosystem services (PES). ...
Line Transect Surveys Underdetect Terrestrial Mammals: Implications for the Sustainability of Subsistence Hunting
Conservation of Neotropical game species must take into account the livelihood and food security needs of local human populations. Hunting management decisions should therefore rely on abundance and distribution data that ...
The Impact of Fine-Scale Disturbances on the Predictability of Vegetation Dynamics and Carbon Flux
Predictions from forest ecosystem models are limited in part by large uncertainties in the current state of the land surface, as previous disturbances have important and lasting influences on ecosystem structure and fluxes ...
The evolution of root-zone moisture capacities after deforestation: a step towards hydrological predictions under change?
The core component of many hydrological systems, the moisture storage capacity available to vegetation, is impossible to observe directly at the catchment scale and is typically treated as a calibration parameter or obtained ...
