Publications Posted on: January 10, 2017
As an international group of taxonomists who study a range of taxa, we consider that you misconstrued the case of a new insect species that was described on the basis of photographs (see Nature 535, 323–324; 2016).

Integrating motion-detection cameras and hair snags for wolverine identification

We developed an integrated system for photographing a wolverine's (Gulo gulo) ventral pattern while concurrently collecting hair for microsatellite DNA genotyping.

A visual training tool for the Photoload sampling technique

Publications Posted on: September 20, 2010
This visual training aid is designed to provide Photoload users a tool to increase the accuracy of fuel loading estimations when using the Photoload technique. The Photoload Sampling Technique (RMRS-GTR-190) provides fire managers a sampling method for obtaining consistent, accurate, inexpensive, and quick estimates of fuel loading.

The photoload sampling technique: estimating surface fuel loadings from downward-looking photographs of synthetic fuelbeds

Publications Posted on: March 29, 2007
Fire managers need better estimates of fuel loading so they can more accurately predict the potential fire behavior and effects of alternative fuel and ecosystem restoration treatments. This report presents a new fuel sampling method, called the photoload sampling technique, to quickly and accurately estimate loadings for six common surface fuel components (1 hr, 10 hr, 100 hr, and 1000 hr downed dead woody, shrub, and herbaceous fuels).

Forest descriptions and photographs of forested areas along the breaks of the Missouri River in eastern Montana, USA

Publications Posted on: February 03, 2007
This handbook presents information and photographs obtained from forest lands along the breaks of the Missouri River in eastern Montana. Forest characteristics summarized in tables with accompanying photographs can be used to provide quick estimates of species composition and densities within similar landscape features. These estimates may be useful to foresters, wildlife biologists, range ecologists, and fire and fuel specialists.

Vegetation in transition: the Southwest's dynamic past century

Publications Posted on: June 09, 2006
Monitoring that follows long-term vegetation changes often requires selection of a temporal baseline. Any such starting point is to some degree artificial, but in some instances there are aids that can be used as guides to baseline selection. Matched photographs duplicating scenes first recorded on film a century or more ago reveal changes that help select the starting point.
