Effects of forest harvesting best management practices on surface water quality in the Virginia coastal plain
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2000)
Three small watersheds located in Westmoreland County, Virginia, were monitored to evaluate the impact of forest clearcutting on surface water quality and to evaluate the effectiveness of forestry best management practices ...
Estimated Sediment Protection Efficiences for Increasing Levels of Best Management Practices on Forest Harvests in the Piedmont, USA
In-stream watershed level evaluations confirm that application of recommended forestry best management practices (BMPs) can minimize sedimentation following management, while on-site erosion research shows that BMPs reduce ...
Fuel Moisture Differences in a Mixed Native and Non-Native Grassland: Implications for Fire Regimes
Non-native plants have far-reaching effects on many terrestrial ecosystems. There are several examples of non-native species altering fire regimes, either by increasing or decreasing the potential intensity and severity ...
Suites of Fire-Adapted Traits of Oaks in the Southeastern USA: Multiple Strategies for Persistence
Fire is integral to the functioning of terrestrial ecosystems of the southeastern USA and is a strong selective force on plant species. Among woody plants, oak species (Quercus spp. L) have diverse life history traits that ...
Streamflow response to increasing precipitation extremes altered by forest management
(Amer Geophysical Union, 2016-04-28)
Increases in extreme precipitation events of floods and droughts are expected to occur worldwide. The increase in extreme events will result in changes in streamflow that are expected to affect water availability for human ...
