  • Brandeis, Thomas James; Newton, Michael; Cole, Elizabeth C. (NRC Canada, 2001)
    In a multilevel study to determine limits to underplanted conifer seedling growth, Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco), grand fir (Abies grandis (Dougl. ex D. Don) Lindl.), western redcedar (Thuja plicata ...
  • Rhatigan, R.G.; Morrell, J.J. (Forest Products Society, 2003-06)
    Large quantities of smaller diameter materials are available in the overstocked forests of eastern Oregon and Washington, but the costs of removing these materials and the long distances from markets sharply reduce the p ...
  • Andersen, Hans-Erik; Strunk, Jacob; Temesgen, Hailemariam (Society of American Foresters, 2011)
    Airborne laser scanning, collected in a sampling mode, has the potential to be a valuable tool for estimating the biomass resources available to support bioenergy production in rural communities of interior Alaska. In th ...
  • Pflugmacher, Dirk; Cohen, Warren B.; Kennedy, Robert E.; Yang, Zhiqiang (Elsevier, 2014-08)
    Improved monitoring of forest biomass and biomass change is needed to quantify natural and anthropogenic effects on the terrestrial carbon cycle. Landsat's temporal and spatial coverage, moderate spatial resolution, and ...
  • Pflugmacher, Dirk; Cohen, Warren B.; Kennedy, Robert E. (Elsevier, 2012-07)
    Lidar is currently the most accurate method for remote estimation of forest structure, but it has limited spatial and temporal coverage. Conversely, Landsat data are more widely available, but exhibit a weaker relationsh ...
  • Andersen, Hans-Erik; Strunk, Jacob; Temesgen, Hailemariam; Atwood, Donald; Winterberger, Ken (Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute, 2011-12)
    The emergence of a new generation of remote sensing and geopositioning technologies, as well as increased capabilities in image processing, computing, and inferential techniques, have enabled the development and implemen ...
  • Gartner, B. L.; Lei, H.; Milota, M. R. (Society of Wood Science and Technology, 1997-01)
    Six 40-year-old red alders (Alnus rubra Bong.) were harvested from a mixed stand of A. rubra and big-leaf maple (Acer macrophyllum Pursh) in the Oregon Coast Range to evaluate variation in their wood characteristics at t ...
  • Morrell, J. J.; Paillard, A.; Gnoblei, D.; Gartner, B. L.; Milota, M. R.; Rhatigan, R. G. (Society of Wood Science and Technology, 2003-07)
    The air permeability of western hemlock from coastal forests in western Oregon was assessed. Permeability varied widely among trees, as well as by position within individual trees. Permeability tended to decrease with di ...
  • Atzet, Thomas; Wheeler, David L.; Smith, Brad; Franklin, Jerry; Riegel, Gregg; Thornburgh, Dale (Corvallis, OR: Forest Research Laboratory. Oregon State University, 1992)
  • Hilker, Thomas; Lyapustin, Alexei I.; Tucker, Compton J.; et al. (National Academy of Sciences, 2014-11-11)
    We show that the vegetation canopy of the Amazon rainforest is highly sensitive to changes in precipitation patterns and that reduction in rainfall since 2000 has diminished vegetation greenness across large parts of ...
  • Filotas, Elise; Parrott, Lael; Burton, Philip J.; Chazdon, Robin L.; Coates, K. David; Coll, Lluis; Haeussler, Sybille; Martin, Kathy; Nocentini, Susanna; Puettmann, Klaus J.; Putz, Francis E.; Simard, Suzanne W.; Messier, Christian (Ecological Society of America, 2014-01)
    Complex systems science provides a transdisciplinary framework to study systems characterized by (1) heterogeneity, (2) hierarchy, (3) self-organization, (4) openness, (5) adaptation, (6) memory, (7) non-linearity, and ...
  • Needham, Mark D.; Little, Christopher M. (Elsevier, 2013-04)
    This article examines visitor perceptions of voluntary environmental programs (VEPs) at the Mt. Bachelor ski area in Oregon, USA by examining what they know about VEPs, how these programs influence motivations to visit t ...
  • Wang, Weihong; Morrell, J. J. (Forest Products Society, 2004-12)
    Wood-plastic composites are generally presumed to be inherently more resistant to moisture uptake than solid wood, but there is little data on the relative rates of moisture uptake in these materials over time. Trex[R] a ...
  • Gartner, B. L.; Bullock, S. H.; Mooney, H. A.; Brown, V. B.; Whitbeck, J. L. (Botanical Society of America, 1990)
    Excised stem segments of vines had higher specific hydraulic conductivies (flow rate per pressure gradient per stem transverse area) than did trees during the dry season in a deciduous forest in Jalisco, Mexico. Vine sp ...
  • Abella, Scott R.; Craig, Jill E.; McPherson, Sara L.; Spencer, Jessica E. (Natural Areas Association, 2014-01)
    Springs in arid lands provide critical habitat for a variety of species and functions to humans, yet the ecology and management needs of springs to maintain these values are poorly understood. To examine plant communit ...
  • van de Lindt, John W.; Gupta, Rakesh; Cox, Daniel T.; Wilson, Jebediah S. (Fuji Technology Press, 2009-12)
    Recent natural disasters around the world including both tsunamis and hurricanes, have highlighted the inability of wood buildings to withstand wave and surge loading during these extreme events. Little is known abou ...
  • Taylor, A. M.; Gartner, B. L.; Morrell, J. J. (Forest Products Society, 2006)
    Understanding how silvicultural treatments and changes in the forest resource will affect wood quality characteristics, including heartwood natural durability, is a critical need for forest managers. Because heartwood p ...
  • Chevallier, Frederic; Wang, Tao; Ciais, Philippe; Maignan, Fabienne; Bocquet, Marc; Arain, M. Altaf; Cescatti, Alessandro; Chen, Jiquan; Dolman, A. Johannes; Law, Beverly E.; Margolis, Hank A.; Montagnani, Leonardo; Moors, Eddy J. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-03-10)
    To guide the future development of CO₂-atmospheric inversion modeling systems, we analyzed the errors arising from prior information about terrestrial ecosystem fluxes. We compared the surface fluxes calculated by a proc ...
  • Ripple, William J.; Wirsing, Aaron J.; Wilmers, Christopher C.; Letnic, Mike (Elsevier, 2013-04)
    Herein, we posit a link between the ecological extinction of wolves in the American West and the expansion in distribution, increased abundance, and inflated ecological influence of coyotes. We investigate the hypothes ...
  • Ager, Alan A.; Day, Michelle A.; McHugh, Charles W.; Short, Karen; Gilbertson-Day, Julie; Finney, Mark A.; Calkin, David E. (Elsevier, 2014-12-01)
    Substantial investments in fuel management activities on national forests in the western US are part of a national strategy to reduce human and ecological losses from catastrophic wildfire and create fire resilient lan ...
