Improved monitoring of forest biomass is needed to quantify natural and anthropogenic effects on the terrestrial carbon cycle. Landsat's temporal and spatial coverage, fine spatial grain, and long history of earth observations provide a unique opportunity for measuring biophysical properties of vegetation across large areas and long time scales. However,...
This thesis examined the influence of fall-spawning coho salmon on the
density, growth rate, body condition, and survival to outmigration of juvenile coho
salmon rearing in beaver ponds on the Copper River Delta, Alaska. During the fall of
1999 and 2000 fish rearing in ponds that received spawning salmon were...

Limnology is undergoing a transition to high-throughput -omic analysis of freshwater
bacterial communities. An important first step in making the transition is to
characterize several genomes that can be used as references to guide metagenome
assembly and analysis. Here I characterize four new freshwater cyanobacterial
genomes, a pair of lake...
Accurate estimates of forest aboveground biomass are needed to reduce uncertainties in the terrestrial carbon flux. The Geoscience Laser Altimeter System (GLAS) onboard the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite is now the first spaceborne lidar sensor that will provide global estimates of vegetation height. This study investigated the utility...
Invasion by nonnative brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) often results in
replacement of bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) in western North America, but the
causal mechanisms are not well understood. Removal of brook trout from 1992 to 2000
from Sun Creek in southern Oregon, provided an opportunity to investigate the changes
The purpose of this study of the life and career of Dr. Carl
Leonard Anderson was to recount his professional contributions to
the field of health and relate these to public health and health education. The major emphasis of this study concerned Dr. Anderson's
The accomplishment of the...
This thesis uses a series of non-fiction vignettes to explore objects, agencies, and networks, applying theories of rhetoric and composition directly to experience and vise versa. Focusing on agency--as understood through sociology's actor-networks, post- humanism’s Object Orientated Ontology, and Ecocriticism's ecological approach--I look at events, landscapes, and partnerships that have...
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 relationship with structure under medium to high leaf area conditions. One potentially valuable means of enhancing the relationship...
