In marine ecosystems, rising atmospheric CO2 and climate change are associated
with concurrent shifts in temperature, circulation, stratification, nutrient
input, oxygen content, and ocean acidification, with potentially wideranging
biological effects. Population-level shifts are occurring because of
physiological intolerance to new environments, altered dispersal patterns,
and changes in species interactions. Together...
Disease predictive systems are intended to be management aids. With
a few exceptions, these systems typically do not have direct sustained
use by growers. Rather, their impact is mostly pedagogic and indirect,
improving recommendations from farm advisers and shaping management
concepts. The degree to which a system is consulted depends...

I argue that peer review research in...
This dataset was created for the purpose of collecting and cataloguing sources that mentioned aspects of cultural diversity or workforce diversity within natural resource professions. The exploratory questions that prompted the collection of sources in this dataset were:

A study to review the status and distribution of vascular plants at Lewis and Clark National Historical Park was initiated in 2009 and completed in 2010 by the Oregon Natural Heritage Information Center at Oregon State University. This study built on previous inventories conducted under the National Park Service‘s Inventory...
For the type of museums discussed in this paper,
the nonprofit organization type, the board of
directors is the governing body. The board approves
the policies that guide the staff in administering the
museum. The relationship between the board and the
staff should be one of respect and cooperation; but...
The purpose of this report is to review existing wildfire prevention activities and recommend strategies to reduce the number and severity of human-caused wildfires in Oregon.
Oregon’s forest protection system was created in 1911. At that time, timber harvesting, forest management, and other land-clearing activities were the predominant uses of...
