Five lichen species were evaluated as element-content pollution bioindicators for a pilot study in Wisconsin and adjacent U.S. states, using data for 20 elements. Goodquality elemental data for aluminum, cobalt, chromium, copper, iron, nitrogen, and sulfur—mostly from nonspecialist U.S.
This report highlights key findings from 2013 data collected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis program across all forested land on Guam, updating findings from data collected in 2002 that were published in Resource Bulletin PNW-RB-243.
Although many forestry practitioners have a general understanding of the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program and the type of data collected, most non-expert users of FIA reports and basic data are unlikely to be familiar with the breadth of information available and the many potential uses o
Background: Recent increases in forest tree mortality should increase the abundance coarse woody detritus (CWD) and ultimately lead to increased atmospheric carbon dioxide. However, the time course of carbon release from CWD is not well understood.
The Arctic and boreal regions are warming more than twice as rapidly as the rest of the world. The timing of plants’ flowering and fruiting is changing, with implications for insects, wildlife, and people who rely on these resources for food and livelihoods in Alaska.
Since the 1930s, the United States Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program has inventoried the nation’s forests to produce “The Nation’s Forest Census.” This census provides valuable snapshots of forests in the lower 48 states, Hawaii, southeast Alaska, and the U.S.-affiliated Pac
Using an adaptation of Forest Inventory and Analysis’s BioSum framework, which models prospective management of forested landscapes using forest inventory data, we tested several fire-resistance-promoting restoration treatments, implemented with tethered cut-to-length harvest systems, for effectiven
Objectives - Determine whether patients who live in greener and more walkable neighbourhoods live longer, and take fewer opioids, following hip or knee arthroplasty. Design - Retrospective cohort study.
