In the “CPULD News” newsletters, you’ll find everything from current news regarding CPULD activities over the past months, to introductions to some of our interns, students, and faculty/staff. There are summaries of recent ...
Biodiversity conservation in the era of biofuels: risks and opportunities
(Ecological Society of America, 2011-04)
Growing demand for alternative energy sources has contributed to increased biofuel production, but the effects on biodiversity of land-use change to biofuel crops remain unclear. Using a meta-analysis for crops being used ...
Amphiphilic hydroxyalkyl cellulose derivatives for amorphous solid dispersion prepared by olefin cross-metathesis
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-07-07)
Olefin cross-metathesis (CM) has enabled design and synthesis of diverse, amphiphilic cellulose ether derivatives (e.g. of ethyl and methyl cellulose). In this paper, hydroxyalkyl cellulose was selected as a hydrophilic ...
Time-Varying Storage-Water Age Relationships in a Catchment With a Mediterranean Climate
(American Geophysical Union, 2018-06-01)
Recent studies on the relationships between catchment storage and water ages using Travel Time Distributions (TTDs), Residence Time Distributions (RTDs), and StorAge Selection (SAS) functions have led to the hypothesis ...
A comparison between traditional and measurement-error growth models for weakfish Cynoscion regalis
Inferring growth for aquatic species is dependent upon accurate descriptions of age-length relationships, which may be degraded by measurement error in observed ages. Ageing error arises from biased and/or imprecise age ...
Landscape Dynamics on the Island of La Gonave, Haiti, 1990-2010
The island of La Gonave lies northwest of Port-au-Prince and is representative of the subsistence Haitian lifestyle. Little is known about the land cover changes and conversion rates on La Gonave. Using Landsat images from ...
Using Historical Atlas Data to Develop High-Resolution Distribution Models of Freshwater Fishes
(Public Library of Science, 2015-06-15)
Understanding the spatial pattern of species distributions is fundamental in biogeography, and conservation and resource management applications. Most species distribution models (SDMs) require or prefer species presence ...
Threshold changes in storm runoff generation at a till-mantled headwater catchment
(Amer Geophysical Union, 2010-07-20)
Trust ecology and the resilience of natural resource management institutions
(The Resilience Alliance, 2015)
The resilience of natural resource management (NRM) institutions are largely contingent on the capacities of the people and organizations within those institutions to learn, innovate, and adapt, both individually and ...
