The unaddressed threat of invasive animals in U.S. National Parks
(Springer Nature, 2020-02)
Invasive species, both plants and animals, are a long-standing threat to the National Parks of the United States. For nearly two decades the National Park Service has implemented a service-wide invasive plant management ...
Lake thermal structure drives interannual variability in summer anoxia dynamics in a eutrophic lake over 37 years
The concentration of oxygen is fundamental to lake water quality and ecosystem functioning through its control over habitat availability for organisms, redox reactions, and recycling of organic material. In many eutrophic ...
Focused ultrasound extraction (FUSE) for the rapid extraction of DNA from tissue matrices
Rapid DNA extraction is a critical barrier for routine and fieldable genetics tests for applications in conservation, such as illegal trafficking and fraudulent mislabelling. Here, we develop a non-thermal focused ultrasound ...

The contribution of wildland fire emissions to deposition in the US: implications for tree growth and survival in the Northwest
Ecosystems require access to key nutrients like nitrogen (N) and sulfur (S) to sustain growth and healthy function. However, excessive deposition can also damage ecosystems through nutrient imbalances, leading to changes ...

Competitive Strategies for International Marketing of Hardwood Products Based on the Mining of Open Questionnaire Data
International markets for U.S. forest products continue to make a significant contribution to the national economy; sustaining growth in production and job creation as demand from domestic markets is still yet to match ...
On the tiger trails: Leopard occupancy decline and leopard interaction with tigers in the forested habitat across the Terai Arc Landscape of Nepal
Better conservation planning requires updated information about leopard distribution to prioritize and allocate limited resources available. The long-term persistence of leopards and sympatric tigers can be compromised by ...
Analysing detection gaps in acoustic telemetry data to infer differential movement patterns in fish
A wide array of technologies are available for gaining insight into the movement of wild aquatic animals. Although acoustic telemetry can lack the fine-scale spatial resolution of some satellite tracking technologies, the ...
Winter roost selection of Lasiurine tree bats in a pyric landscape
Day-roost selection by Lasiurine tree bats during winter and their response to dormant season fires is unknown in the southeastern United States where dormant season burning is widely applied. Although fires historically ...
