Species and Habitat Vulnerability Assessments of Appalachian Species and Habitats
Future climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies will be dependent on the best available projections of how the regional climate will change and the ...
Species and Habitat Vulnerability Assessments of Appalachian Species and Habitats
Future climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies will be dependent on the best available projections of how the regional climate will change and on ...
Full Proposal: Assessing Future Energy Development Across the Appalachian Mountains
Scientists will employ land use change build-out scenaria for future energy development demand to quantify future impacts on forest habitats across the ...
Cerulean Warbler Forest Management Project
The Cerulean Warbler project was initiated to allow the scientific and management communities to test forestry methods and use experimental harvesting of ...
Chiapas/Appalachian/Pacific Alliance
Many of the bird species that breed in the AMJV spend the fall and winter months in Mexico and Central and South America. Our partnership is committed to work ...
Forestlands Best Management Practices for Golden-winged Warblers
Combing through habitat literature and conducting two years of surveys for the presence of Golden-winged Warblers at forest stands, the AMJV and partners ...
Ohio River Basin FHP Overview and Strategy
This presentation provides a general overview of the ORBFHP. It includes information on the regional partnership's mission, the region in which they are ...
Assessing Future Energy Development Across the Appalachians
Assessing Future Energy Development across the Appalachian LCC used models that combined data on energy development trends and identified where these may ...
Adaptive management of biological systems: A review
Adaptive Management (AM) is widely considered to be the best available approach for managing biolog- ical systems in the presence of uncertainty. But AM has ...
Afforestation Effects on Soil Carbon Storage in the United States: A Synthesis
Afforestation (tree establishment on nonforested land) is a management option for increasing terrestrial C sequestration and mitigating rising atmo- spheric ...
Climate Change, Aboveground-Belowground Interactions, and Species’ Range Shifts
Changes in climate, land use, fire incidence, and ecological connections all may contribute to current species’ range shifts. Species shift range individually, ...
Beyond Reserves and Corridors: Policy Solutions to Facilitate the Movement of Plants and Animals in a Changing Climate
As the Earth’s climate changes, many species will have to move across human-dominated landscapes to track suitable climates and changing ecosystems. Given the ...
Ecosystem Processes and Human Influences Regulate Streamflow Response to Climate Change at Long-Term Ecological Research Sites
Analyses of long-term records at 35 headwater basins in the United States and Canada indicate that climate change effects on streamflow are not as clear as ...
Feedbacks of Terrestrial Ecosystems to Climate Change
Most modeling studies on terrestrial feedbacks to warming over the twenty-first century imply that the net feedbacks are negative—that changes in ecosystems, ...
CO2 emissions from land-use change affected more by nitrogen cycle, than by the choice of land-cover data
The high uncertainty in land-based CO2 fluxes estimates is thought to be mainly due to uncertainty in not only quantifying historical changes among forests, ...
Carbon Dynamics of the Forest Sector
Main points: The basic ecosystem science behind carbon dynamics in forests is relatively straightforward (really!).This science doesn’t seem to be applied very ...
Detection and Attribution of Streamflow Timing Changes to Climate Change in the Western United States
This article applies formal detection and attribution techniques to investigate the nature of observed shifts in the timing of streamflow in the western United ...
Ecological extinction and evolution in the brave new ocean
The great mass extinctions of the fossil record were a major creative force that provided entirely new kinds of opportunities for the subsequent explosive ...
Biodiversity and ecosystem multifunctionality
Biodiversity loss can affect ecosystem functions and services1–4. Individual ecosystem functions generally show a positive asymptotic relationship with ...
Assessing the impacts of livestock production on biodiversity in rangeland ecosystems
Biodiversity in rangelands is decreasing, due to intense utilization for livestock production and conversion of rangeland into cropland; yet the outlook of ...
Effects of Urbanization and Climate Change on Stream Health
Estimation of stream health involves the analysis of changes in aquatic species, riparian vegetation, microinvertebrates, and channel degradation due to ...
Can a collapse of global civilization be avoided?
Environmental problems have contributed to numerous collapses of civilizations in the past. ... But today, for the first time, humanity’s global ...
Ecosystem Disturbance, Carbon, and Climate
Models of climate change effects should incorporate land-use changes and episodic disturbances such as fires and insect epidemics.
A-maize-ing Diversity
Analysis of a new maize resource reveals that a large number of genetic loci with small effects may underlie the wide variation seen in traits such as ...
An Uncertain Future for Soil Carbon
Predictions of how rapidly the large amounts of carbon stored as soil organic matter will respond to warming are highly uncertain (1). Organic matter plays a ...
Challenges in the conservation, rehabilitation and recovery of native stream salmonid populations: beyond the 2010 Luarca symposium
– In May 2010, I chaired a session on challenges to salmonid conservation at the international symposium ‘Advances in the population ecology of stream ...
Animal migration amid shifting patterns of phenology and predation: lessons from a Yellowstone elk herd
Migration is a striking behavioral strategy by which many animals enhance resource acquisition while reducing predation risk. Historically, the demographic ...
Characterizing coal and mineral mines as a regional source of stress to stream fish assemblages
Mining impacts on stream systems have historically been studied over small spatial scales, yet investigations over large areas may be useful for characterizing ...
Conservation threats: biofuel
Biofuels: Europe’s largest conservation charity has launched a campaign to heighten the threat to wildlife habitats and biodiversity from plantations of fuel ...
Changes in climate and land use have a larger direct impact than rising CO2 on global river runoff trends
The significant worldwide increase in observed river runoff has been tentatively attributed to the stomatal ‘‘antitranspirant’’ response of plants to rising ...
