The Seedlot Selection Tool and Climate-Smart Restoration Tool are web-based tools designed to match seedlots with planting sites assuming that seedlots are adapted to the past climates in which they evolved, primarily with respect to temperature and aridity.
Analysis of a 10 year reciprocal transplant study was performed to determine the influence of seed-source and local planting site climates on the bole taper of 8995 Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii var. menziesii) trees.
Streams and rivers are a rich repository of minute traces of genetic material from all organisms that live in or near the water, from the tiniest microbes to fish, mammals, and trees. This environmental DNA (eDNA) can tell a detailed story about the life within and around the waterbody.
The Olympic Experimental State Forest (OESF) covers more than 110 000 ha on the western Olympic Peninsula in the state of Washington. The forest consists of state trust lands that are administered by Washington Department of Natural Resources (WADNR).
This chapter is a review and synthesis of research conducted at Luquillo Experimental Forest (LEF) on stream nutrients and biological responses. It is intended to inform national and regional water quality regulatory agencies, such as the U.S.
