The Impact of Water Content on Sources of Heterotrophic Soil Respiration
Heterotrophic respiration (R<sub>H</sub>) is a major flux of CO<sub>2</sub> from forest ecosystems and represents a large source of uncertainty in estimating net ecosystem productivity (NEP) using regional soil respiration ...
Erratum: Chance, E.W., et al. Identifying Irrigated Areas in the Snake River Plain, Idaho: Evaluating Performance across Compositing Algorithms, Spectral Indices, and Sensors. Remote Sens. 2017, 9, 546
In the published paper , the title and Appendix Tables A4, A5, A7, and A8 contain typographical errors. The correct title and table captions are as follows: [...]<br />
Restoring the endangered oyster mussel (Epioblasma capsaeformis) to the upper Clinch River, Virginia: an evaluation of population restoration techniques
(Restoration Ecology, 2015)
From 2005 to 2011, the federally endangered freshwater mussel Epioblasma capsaeformis (oyster mussel) was reintroduced at three sites in the upper Clinch River, Virginia, using four release techniques. These release ...
Identifying and assessing ecotourism visitor impacts at eight protected areas in Costa Rica and Belize
(Cambridge University Press, 2001-09)
Protected area visitation is an important component of ecotourism, and as such, must be sustainable. However, protected area visitation may degrade natural resources, particularly in areas of concentrated visitor activities ...
Identifying Irrigated Areas in the Snake River Plain, Idaho: Evaluating Performance across Composting Algorithms, Spectral Indices, and Sensors
There are pressing concerns about the interplay between agricultural productivity, water demand, and water availability in semi-arid to arid regions of the world. Currently, irrigated agriculture is the dominant water user ...
Creating Landscape-Scale Site Index Maps for the Southeastern US Is Possible with Airborne LiDAR and Landsat Imagery
Sustainable forest management is hugely dependent on high-quality estimates of forest site productivity, but it is challenging to generate productivity maps over large areas. We present a method for generating site index ...
Occupational Safety and Health Concerns in Logging: A Cross-Sectional Assessment in Virginia
Increased logging mechanization has helped improve logging safety and health, yet related safety risks and concerns are not well understood. A cross-sectional study was completed among Virginia loggers. Participants (<i>n ...
The impact of forest logging and fragmentation on carnivore species composition, density and occupancy in Madagascar's rainforests
(Cambridge University Press, 2012-07)
Forest carnivores are threatened globally by logging and forest fragmentation yet we know relatively little about how such change affects predator populations. This is especially true in Madagascar, where carnivores have ...
Ocelot Leopardus pardalis in Belize: the impact of trap spacing and distance moved on density estimates
(Cambridge University Press, 2007-10)
We used remote cameras to obtain information on an elusive species and to examine the effects of different camera trapping methodologies on abundance estimates. We determined activity pattern, trail use, trap success, and ...
The use of camera traps for estimating jaguar Panthera onca abundance and density using capture/recapture analysis
(Cambridge University Press, 2004-04)
Across their range jaguars Panthera onca are important conservation icons for several reasons: their important role in ecosystems as top carnivores, their cultural and economic value, and their potential conflicts with ...
