  • Ripple, William J.; Beschta, Robert L. (Springer, 2012)
    There is a lack of scientific consensus about how top-down and bottom-up forces interact to structure terrestrial ecosystems. This is especially true for systems with large carnivore and herbivore species where the effe ...
  • Valachovic, Y.S.; Caldwell, B.A.; Cromack Jr., K.; Griffiths, Robert P. (NRC Canada, 2004-10)
    The effects of initial leaf litter chemistry on first-year decomposition rates were studied for 16 common Pacific Northwest conifers, hardwoods, and shrubs at the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest in western Oregon. Leaf ...
  • Wilson, B. F.; Gartner, B. L. (NRC Canada, 1996)
    Natural stands and a 3-year-old plantation of red alder (Alnus rubra Bong.) trees were used to study the incidence of leaning stems, the level of growth stresses and tension wood formation, and the ability of the stems t ...
  • Peterson, Fox S.; Lajtha, Kate J. (American Geophysical Union, 2013-09-05)
    Factors influencing soil organic matter (SOM) stabilization and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) content in complex terrain, where vegetation, climate, and topography vary over the scale of a few meters, are not well under ...
  • Gartner, Barbara Lachenbruch (1990)
    This appendix to my dissertation documents how I worked with poison oak plants as a subject of study for three years. It contains practical suggestions for people who have my level of sensitivity (low to moderate). I e ...
  • Poage, Nathan Jeremy; Tappeiner, John C., II (NRC Canada, 2002)
    Diameter growth and age data collected from stumps of 505 recently cut old-growth Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) trees at 28 sample locations in western Oregon (U.S.A.) indicated that rapid early and ...
  • Latta, Gregory; Temesgen, Hailemariam; Barrett, Tara M. (NRC Research Press, 2009)
    Regional estimation of potential forest productivity is important to diverse applications, including biofuels supply, carbon sequestration, and projections of forest growth. Using PRISM (Parameter-elevation Regressions o ...
  • Swatantran, Anu; Dubayah, Ralph; Goetz, Scott; Hofton, Michelle; Betts, Matthew G.; Sun, Mindy; Simard, Marc; Holmes, Richard (Public Library of Science, 2012-01-03)
    Background: Improved maps of species distributions are important for effective management of wildlife under increasing anthropogenic pressures. Recent advances in lidar and radar remote sensing have shown considerable po ...
  • Domec, J.-C.; Lachenbruch, B.; Meinzer, F. C.; Woodruff, D. R.; Warren, J. M.; McCulloh, K. A. (National Academy of Sciences, 2008)
    Despite renewed interest in the nature of limitations on maximum tree height, the mechanisms governing ultimate and species-specific height limits are not yet understood, but likely involve water transport dynamics. Tall ...
  • Huang, Minghuang; Nairn, John A.; Liu, Feng; Lagally, M. G. (American Institute of Physics, 2005-06-01)
    We perform two-dimensional linear elastic finite element analysis to investigate the mechanical stability of ultrathin Ge/Si film grown on or bonded to SiO₂, using imperfect interface elements between Si and SiO₂ to mode ...
  • Park, Sangki; van de Lindt, John W.; Gupta, Rakesh; Cox, Daniel (Springer, 2012-09)
    The 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the 2011 Great Tohoku Japan earthquake and tsunami focused a great deal of the world’s attention on the effect of tsunamis on buildings and infrastructure. When a tsunami impacts structu ...
  • Dubrasich, Michael E.; Hann, David W.; Tappeiner, John C. II (NRC Canada, 1997-03)
    Canopy architectures of five structurally complex forest stands and three structurally simple forest stands in southwest Oregon and the Willamette Valley, Oregon, were evaluated and quantified through crown area profiles ...
  • Lebow, Stan T.; Morrell, Jeffrey J. (Society of Wood Science and Technology, 1993-01)
    The relationship between moisture content and the presence of methylisothiocyanate (MITC) in wood following various applications of sodium n-methyldithiocarbamate (NaMDC) was investigated with small Douglas-fir heartwood ...
  • Standfest, Gernot; Kutnar, Andreja; Plank, Bernhard; Petutschnigg, Alexander; Kamke, Frederick A.; Dunky, Manfred (Springer, 2013-01)
    The paper describes for the first time the analysis of the structure of compressed wood using computed tomography. The anatomical structures of Douglas-fir and hybrid poplar before and after densification with the Viscoe ...
  • Strunk, Jacob L.; Reutebuch, Stephen E.; Andersen, Hans-Erik; Gould, Peter J.; McGaughey, Robert J. (Society of American Foresters, 2012-04)
    Previous studies have demonstrated that light detection and ranging (LiDAR)-derived variables can be used to model forest yield variables, such as biomass, volume, and number of stems. However, the next step is underrepr ...
  • Schaefer, Kevin; Schwalm, Christopher R.; Williams, Chris; Arain, M. Altaf; Barr, Alan; Chen, Jing M.; Davis, Kenneth J.; Dimitrov, Dimitre; Hilton, Timothy W.; Hollinger, David Y.; Humphreys, Elyn; Poulter, Benjamin; Raczka, Brett M.; Richardson, Andrew D.; Sahoo, Alok; Thornton, Peter; Vargas, Rodrigo; Verbeeck, Hans; Anderson, Ryan; Baker, Ian; Black, T.

Harry; Monson, Russ; Munger, J. William; Oechel, Walter; Peng, Changhui; Price, David T.; Ricciuto, Dan; Riley, William J.; Roulet, Nigel; Tian, Hanqin; Tonitto, Christina; Torn, Margaret; Weng, Ensheng; Zhou, Xiaolu (American Geophysical Union, 2012-07-19)
    Accurately simulating gross primary productivity (GPP) in terrestrial ecosystem models is critical because errors in simulated GPP propagate through the model to introduce additional errors in simulated biomass and other ...
  • Vatovec, M.; Miller, T. H.; Gupta, R. (American Society of Agricultural Engineers, 1996-05)
    A commercially available, three-dimensional finite-element analysis software was used to model the load-displacement behavior of metal-plate-connected (MPC) joints in wooden trusses. Model features included consideratio ...
  • Vatovec, M.; Miller, T. H.; Gupta, R.; Lewis, S. (American Society of Agricultural Engineers, 1997-11)
    A previously developed, three-dimensional (3-D) finite-element (FE) joint model and several two-dimensional (2-D), beam-element based FE models with different joint-stiffness assumptions (pinned, rigid, and semi-rigid) ...
  • Trummer, L.M.; Hennon, P.E.; Hansen, E. M.; Muir, P.S. (NRC Canada, 1998)
