Turbulence and velocity barriers to upstream emerald shiner ( Notropis atherinoides ) movement: A field study at Broderick Park, Buffalo - NY
Physical modifications near the head of the upper Niagara River in the form of river dredging and construction of vertical seawalls are assumed to have resulted in the channelization of the river leading to increased water ...
Space-time cluster analysis of foot-and-mouth disease in South Korea
The 2010/2011 South Korea Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) epidemic was one of the most serious outbreaks in its history, however, insufficient attention was paid to investigate the disease pattern. The objective of this ...
Assessing Native American influences upon pre-European tree species composition in western New York: An approach using original land survey records and species distribution models
The impact of Native Americans upon forest composition has long been a topic of scholarly inquiry and debate. Native American groups of Eastern North America practiced various forms of horticulture and land management (e.g. ...
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 ...
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 ...
