This proposal by the Coniferous Forest Biome investigators requests support
for the third and fourth years of a highly integrated series of investigations
within the Ecosystem Analysis program of the United States effort under the
International Biological Program. The program for the Coniferous Forest Biome
has been approved by the...
Grazing rates and density of the crustacean zooplankton were measured
in Findley and Chester Morse Lakes and Lake Sammamish, Washington.
Sample analysis is incomplete at reporting time, thus estimates of
production from examination of life stage biomass changes was not possible.
Maximum density of crustacean zooplankton was about 10/1 in...
Lakes Findley, Chester Morse and Sammamish, Washington, are characterized
by one major outburst of phytoplankton productivity and biomass (mainly
diatoms) with usually no or low fall activity. Vernal outbursts were often
delayed in some lakes and years probably by unfavorable climate (snow cover
and cloudy rainy conditions). Mean spring-summer productivity...
This study evaluated the effect of soil compaction on the growth
of natural regeneration on volcanic ash-influenced soils in the
southern Washington Cascades. Growth of 9 to 18 year-old sapling-.
sized Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Laws.) was studied on sites
ranging from 915 to 1006 m elevation in an area...
