Bite force estimation of Smilodon fatalis using forward and inverse methodologies
Bite force estimates of extinct species can lead to establishing many hypotheses about the extinct animals. This work is focused on estimating the bite forces of an extinct cat Smilodon fatalis . Bite forces were estimated ...
Remote sensing and hydrological modeling of burn scars
This study examined the potential usefulness of combining remote sensing data with hydrologic models and mapping tools available from Geographic Information Systems (GIS), to evaluate the effects of wildfire. Four subprojects ...
Phylogenetic analysis, systematics, and evolution of early Ordovician graptolites
The exact phylogenetic relationships of many early Ordovician graptolites are unknown due to a lack of knowledge about the detailed proximal end structure of these groups. The proximal end structure of graptolite rhabdosomes ...
Towards a mechanistic understanding of spatial patterns of forest transpiration, and its implications for scaling
Estimates of forest stand transpiration are typically achieved by scaling a series of representative point measurements to the stand level. This method fails to account for heterogeneity in transpiration at stand boundaries ...
