  • Hammersley, Charles H.; Tynon, Joanne F. (Wilfrid Laurier University Press, 1998)
    This study was initiated by the Resort and Commercial Recreation Association (RCRA) in an attempt to determine the feasibility of a national certification program for resort and commercial recreation employees. Current n ...
  • Mitchoff, M. E.; Morrell, Jeffrey J. (Society of Wood Science and Technology, 1988-07)
    Alder represents an abundant but underutilized resource that has little natural resistance to decay. Treated alder might be used for stakes, posts, or other nonstructural applications. The performance of alder treated wi ...
  • Steel, E. A.; Jensen, D. W.; Burnett, K. M.; Christiansen, K.; Firman, J. C.; Feist, B. E.; Anlauf, K. J.; Larsen, D. P. (NRC Research Press (Canadian Science Publishing), 2012-03)
    Distribution of fishes, both occupancy and abundance, is often correlated with landscape-scale characteristics (e.g., geology, climate, and human disturbance). Understanding these relationships is essential for effective ...
  • Reid, J. Leighton; Mendenhall, Chase D.; Abel Rosales, J.; Zahawi, Rakan A.; Holl, Karen D. (Public Library of Science, 2014-03-04)
    Birds both promote and prosper from forest restoration. The ecosystem functions birds perform can increase the pace of forest regeneration and, correspondingly, increase the available habitat for birds and other forest- ...
  • 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 ...
  • Lafferty, Diana J. R.; Belant, Jerrold L.; White, Kevin S.; Womble, Jamie N.; Morzillo, Anita T. (Arctic Institute of North America, 2014-06)
    Since most wolf (Canis lupus) diet studies have been conducted in inland ecosystems, comparatively few data are available on diets of wolves in coastal systems. We investigated the diet of wolves in Glacier Bay, Alaska, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Stidham, Melanie; Olsen, Christine; Toman, Eric; Frederick, Stacey; McCaffrey, Sarah; Shindler, Bruce (Taylor & Francis, 2014-06-10)
    The majority of social science research is cross-sectional in nature, with data collected at a single point in time. However, social systems are dynamic and many of the variables of interest to social scientists may ch ...
  • Ruzicka, Kenneth J., Jr.; Puettmann, Klaus J.; Olson, Deanna H. (Society of American Foresters, 2014-10-02)
    We examined the potential of using upslope density management to influence growth and drought tolerance of trees in untreated downslope riparian forests. Increment cores from Douglas-fir trees in three mature stands in ...
  • 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 ...
  • Gupta, Rakesh; Ethington, Robert L.; Green, David W. (Forest Products Society, 1996-07)
    The objective of this study was to test a method under development for assigning allowable properties to foreign species graded by American Lumber Standard machine-stress-rated (MSR) rules. The method was tested on dahur ...
  • 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 ...
