  • 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 ...
  • Gartner, B. L. (California Botanical Society, 1995)
    To learn the effect of wind on a species native to a windy site, I compared germination, seedling survival, seedling form, and the force required to uproot seedlings in a wind-exposed and a wind-sheltered site. In Februa ...
  • Pruyn, M. L.; Gartner, B. L.; Harmon, M. E. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2002)
    • A technique for measuring in vitro respiration was investigated to understand why rates were higher than those reported in vivo and to elucidate trends within mature Pseudotsuga menziesii (Douglas-fir) trees. ...
  • Eisenberg, Cristina; Seager, S. Trent; Hibbs, David E. (Elsevier, 2013-07-01)
    Like most ecological communities, aspen (Populus tremuloides) forests are influenced by a synergy of bottom-up (resources-driven) and top-down (predator-driven) processes. Since the 1920s, ecologists have observed the de ...
  • Robinson, Sara C.; Hinsch, Eric; Weber, Genevieve; Leipus, Kristina; Cerney, Daniel (MDPI - Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2014-07-24)
    The extracellular colorants produced by Chlorociboria aeruginosa, Scytalidium cuboideum, and Scytalidium ganodermophthorum, three commonly utilized spalting fungi, were tested against a standard woodworker’s aniline dy ...
  • DeBell, D. S.; Singleton, R.; Harrington, C. A.; Gartner, B. L. (Society of Wood Science and Technology, 2002)
    Cross-sectional disks were cut at two stem heights (1.5 m and 3.0 m) from 9-year-old trees of three Populus clones grown in an intensively-cultured plantation in western Washington. At age 1.5 years, when the trees avera ...
