TABLE 1: Treatment types and impacts on forest structure
This suggests, when compared with the work of Cannon & Leighton (2004), that forest structure
may be less strongly dependent upon soil variation than is community composition.
Such deductive thinking based on scientific principles can further improve our estimates of the historic disturbance regime and its effects on forest structure
gives students and practitioners a strong background in a wide range of conservation techniques, starting with assessing forest extent and conditions through aerial or satellite imagery ad geographical information systems, evaluating forest structure
and composition through sampling and measuring, understanding and modeling forest dynamics through a variety of computational and non-computational means, diagnosing reproductive ecology and genetic variations, dealing with the forest as habitat and working toward effective forest conservation through such techniques as adaptive management.
Tools for numerical predictions of forest growth and development, multidimensional modeling, numerical site classification, and detection of dissipative forest structure
are complex equations of growth of diameter structure:
Keeton focuses on forest structure
rather than species assemblages because of these imminent changes and also because structure controls many ecological functions.
But it is the longer term impact of squirrels on forest structure
that may pose the greatest threat to woodland birds and mammals.
In addition, areas with once fairly closed forest now have frequent understory openings and associated changes in forest structure
(Connor et al.
We've got a globally significant forest structure
out here that is endangered," says Laughlin, campaign coordinator with the non-profit wilderness defense organization.
Relative effects of small and large disturbances on temperate hardwood forest structure
We're talking about forest structure
and the services a forest can provide in terms of protecting the soil, producing water, tying up carbon dioxide, and protecting biodiversity," says Gliessman.
Produced jointly with the US Forest Service in 1996, the report confirmed what people have known for over a century: "timber harvest, through its effects on forest structure
, local microclimate, and fuel accumulation, has increased fire Severity more than any other recent human activity.
Timber harvest, through its effects on forest structure
, local microclimate and fuels accumulation, has increased fire severity more than any other recent human activity.
At the local scale, high-resolution stereo-matched optical imagery was used to map forest structure
(Gong et al.
Objective: ForeStMap aims at developing an innovative methodology to derive 3-D information on forest structure
at different scales, local to regional, based on a multi-source RS data (multispectral, LiDAR and SAR).
