    Description

    Integrating results across disciplines is a critical component of ecosystem management and research. The common research sites, landscape-scale experimental design, and breadth of research subjects in Missouri Ozark Forest Ecosystem Project provide circumstances conducive for addressing multidisciplinary questions. Our objectives were to (1) summarize the treatment and block effects for pre-treatment studies, (2) identify potential relationships among taxa at different scales by comparing site and ecological landtype (ELT) pattems of diversity and relative abundance, and (3) explore abundance pattems of taxa across year of Missouri Department of Conservation land acquisition classes. We found few pre-treatment effects, but block 3 frequently was different from blocks 1 and 2. Many potential interactions were identified, most of which were between species from different taxonomic groups. Our results suggest that many relationships within an ecosystem are apparent only among species at fine spatial scales. Future analyses will include use of multivariate and spatially explicit models.
