Do biomass harvesting guidelines influence herpetofauna following harvests of logging residues for renewable energy?

ECOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS, 26(3), 926–939.

By: S. Fritts n, C. Moorman n, S. Grodsky n, D. Hazel n, J. Homyack*, C. Farrell*, S. Castleberry*

author keywords: amphibian; biomass harvesting guidelines; clearcut; downed woody debris; Georgia; USA; herpetofauna; North Carolina; USA; pine plantation; renewable energy; toads; woody biomass
MeSH headings : Animals; Biodiversity; Biomass; Bufonidae / physiology; Conservation of Natural Resources; Environmental Monitoring; Forestry; Forests; Population Dynamics; Renewable Energy; Trees
TL;DR: The lack of consistent community or population responses suggests the addition of a woody biomass harvest to a clearcut in pine plantations does not impact herpetofauna use of Coastal Plain loblolly plantations in the southeastern United States. (via Semantic Scholar)

Biotic and abiotic impacts of Double-crested cormorant breeding colonies on forested islands in the southeastern United States

FOREST ECOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT, 369, 10–19.

By: D. Lafferty n, K. Hanson-Dorr*, A. Prisock* & B. Dorr*

author keywords: Double-crested Cormorant; Forest health; Human-wildlife conflict; Soil chemistry; Waterbirds; Water quality
TL;DR: It is found that cormorant colonies are not significant contributors to general coliforms or Escherichia coli levels in waters surrounding southern breeding colonies, and that c Cormorants are affecting soil chemistry, which was more acidic and had greater concentrations of phosphorous than soils on reference islands.

Adaptive divergence despite strong genetic drift: genomic analysis of the evolutionary mechanisms causing genetic differentiation in the island fox (Urocyon littoralis)

MOLECULAR ECOLOGY, 25(10), 2176–2194.

By: W. Funk*, R. Lovich*, P. Hohenlohe*, C. Hofman*, S. Morrison*, T. Sillett*, C. Ghalambor*, J. Maldonado* ...

author keywords: conservation genomics; divergent selection; effective population size; genetic drift; population divergence
MeSH headings : Animals; California; Evolution, Molecular; Foxes / genetics; Genetic Drift; Genetic Variation; Genetics, Population; Genotyping Techniques; Islands; Polymorphism, Single Nucleotide; Sequence Analysis, DNA
TL;DR: Analysis of 5293 SNP loci generated using Restriction‐site Associated DNA (RAD) sequencing found support for genetic drift as the dominant evolutionary mechanism driving population divergence among island fox populations, and patterns of similarity among populations based on high FST outliers mirrored patterns based on morphology, providing additional evidence that outliers reflect adaptive divergence.

Soil-plant-atmosphere conditions regulating convective cloud formation above southeastern US pine plantations

GLOBAL CHANGE BIOLOGY, 22(6), 2238–2254.

author keywords: convective clouds; forest ecosystem; land-cover change; soil-plant-atmosphere interactions
MeSH headings : Atmosphere / chemistry; Forests; Models, Theoretical; Pinus taeda / physiology; Soil / chemistry; Southeastern United States; Water Cycle; Weather
TL;DR: The results demonstrate that cloudy-cloudless regimes at the land surface are regulated by a nonlinear relation between the Bowen ratio Bo=Hs/LE and root-zone soil water content, suggesting that young/mature pines ecosystems have the ability to recirculate available water (through rainfall predisposition mechanisms).

Do coyotes Canis latrans influence occupancy of prey in suburban forest fragments?

CURRENT ZOOLOGY, 62(1), 1–6.

By: B. Jones*, M. Cove n, M. Lashley n & V. Jackson*

author keywords: camera traps; coyote; deer; rabbit; squirrel; urban wildlife
TL;DR: Coyotes play an important role in regulating the herbivorous mammals and hence may provide similar ecological benefits in urban/suburban forest fragments through trophic cascades, since hunting may not be allowed in urban and suburban habitats. (via Semantic Scholar)

Resource selection by southeastern fox squirrels in a fire-maintained forest system

JOURNAL OF MAMMALOGY, 97(2), 631–638.

By: A. Prince*, M. Chitwood, M. Lashley*, C. DePerno* & C. Moorman*

author keywords: growing-season fire; hardwood; longleaf pine; oak; prescribed fire; Quercus; Sciurus niger

Phantoms of the forest: legacy risk effects of a regionally extinct large carnivore

Ecology and Evolution, 6(3), 791–799.

author keywords: Anthropogenic change; antipredator response; brown bear; landscape of fear; predator-prey interactions; prey naivety; ungulates
TL;DR: Investigating if ungulate prey species showed innate responses to the scent of a regionally exterminated but native large carnivore, and whether the responses were affected by human‐induced habitat openness found that all ungulates species generally used open sites more than closed sites, whereas the opposite was observed at sites with reindeer scent or without scent.
