To determine productivity of fish, we will require an estimate of relative abundance that can be expanded later into estimates of biomass. Our work has shown that much of the fish production in Lake Washington is in the form of nonsalmonid and nongame species, such as peamouth and northern squawfish....
Studies of vertical as well as horizontal distributions of fishes often require the use of gill nets hung vertically from the surface to the bottom. By using gill nets in this fashion it is possible to sample the entire water column as a continuous variable.
The small S₁ ocean tide is caused primarily by diurnal atmospheric pressure loading. Its excitation is therefore unlike any other diurnal tide; in particular, pressure loading is maximum near the equator where the diurnal gravitational potential is zero. The global character of the S₁ tide is here determined by numerical...
Thinning of overstory timber will change forest function
and productivity of understory vegetation. Increased solar
exposure promotes understory growth, and disturbance
caused by thinning will create an opportunity for species
establishment. We set up a study to collect baseline data
on the understory community at the Metolius Preserve. Our
