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 ...

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 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 ...
Threatened predator on the equator: multi-point abundance estimates of the tiger Panthera tigris in central Sumatra
(Cambridge University Press, 2013-04)
Information on spatial and temporal variation in abundance is crucial for effective management of wildlife. Yet abundance estimates for the Critically Endangered Sumatran tiger Panthera tigris sumatrae are lacking from ...
Intra-Urban Microclimate Effects on Phenology
The urban heat island effect is commonly defined as the thermal differences between cooler rural and warmer urban areas, but it also refers to microclimatic differences within an urban area that arises from varied combinations ...
A Spatial Analysis of the Relationship between Vegetation and Poverty
The goal of this paper was to investigate poverty and inequities that are associated with vegetation. First, we performed a pixel-level linear regression on time-series and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) for ...
