2008 journal article

The case of the missing marmots: Are metapopulation dynamics or range-wide declines responsible?

BIOLOGICAL CONSERVATION, 141(5), 1293–1309.

By: S. Griffin*, M. Taper*, R. Hoffman* & L. Mills*

author keywords: Marmota olympus; metapopulation dynamics; Olympic marmot; Olympic National Park; non-equilibrium dynamics
TL;DR: The spatial pattern of the extinctions is inconsistent with observed metapopulation dynamics in other marmot species and, together with very low observed dispersal rates, indicates that population is not at equilibrium. (via Semantic Scholar)

Designing fecal pellet surveys for snowshoe hares

FOREST ECOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT, 256(11), 1918–1926.

author keywords: Abundance index; Fecal pellet plots; Lepus americanus; Monte Carlo simulations; Negative binomial; Snowshoe hare; Survey design

Susceptibility to Phytophthora ramorum in a key infectious host: landscape variation in host genotype, host phenotype, and environmental factors

NEW PHYTOLOGIST, 177(3), 756–766.

By: B. Anacker*, N. Rank*, D. Huberli*, M. Garbelotto*, S. Gordon*, T. Harnik*, R. Whitkus*, R. Meentemeyer*

author keywords: amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP); disease susceptibility; landscape epidemiology; oomycete; plant-pathogen interaction; sporangia; sudden oak death; Umbellularia californica
MeSH headings : California; Ecosystem; Genetic Predisposition to Disease; Genotype; Host-Pathogen Interactions / genetics; Host-Pathogen Interactions / immunology; Phenotype; Phytophthora / immunology; Plant Diseases / genetics; Plant Diseases / immunology; Plant Diseases / microbiology; Umbellularia / genetics; Umbellularia / immunology; Umbellularia / microbiology
TL;DR: Large genetic variation in susceptibility to Phytophthora ramorum occurs in its principal foliar host U. californica, but local environment mediates expression of susceptibility in nature, which explains most variation in field disease level. (via Semantic Scholar)

By: J. Witczuk*, S. Pagacz* & L. Mills*

author keywords: Marmota olympus; occupancy; Olympic National Park; presence-absence
TL;DR: A large-scale, long-term monitoring program for Olympic marmot (Marmota olympus) throughout its range across a logistically challenging mountainous park is presented, designed to reflect extinction–recolonisation dynamics using presence–absence data. (via Semantic Scholar)

Multi-scale patterns of human activity and the incidence of an exotic forest pathogen

JOURNAL OF ECOLOGY, 96(4), 766–776.

author keywords: disease incidence; exotic forest pathogen; foliar and canker hosts; human activity; Phytophthora ramorum; Sudden Oak Death
TL;DR: The results suggest that human activity – along with temperature, moisture and host composition – is associated with increased prevalence of an influential exotic forest pathogen, and indicate that there may be conflicts between humans and disease. (via Semantic Scholar)

2008 journal article

Influence of land-cover change on the spread of an invasive forest pathogen

ECOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS, 18(1), 159–171.

author keywords: fire suppression; forest microclunate; landscape epidemiology; path analysis; Phytophthora ramorum; simultaneous autoregressive (SAR) modeling; Sudden Oak Death
MeSH headings : Mycoses / transmission; Phytophthora / pathogenicity; Plant Diseases; Trees
TL;DR: Examination of the influence of land-cover changes between 1942 and 2000 on the establishment of an invasive pathogen, Phytophthora ramorum, concludes that enlargement of woodlands and closure of canopy gaps facilitated establishment of P. ramorum by increasing the area occupied by inoculum-production foliar hosts and enhancing forest microclimate conditions.

Impact of sudden oak death on tree mortality in the Big Sur ecoregion of California

BIOLOGICAL INVASIONS, 10(8), 1243–1255.

By: R. Meentemeyer*, N. Rank*, D. Shoemaker*, C. Oneal*, A. Wickland*, K. Frangioso*, D. Rizzo*

author keywords: Big Sur; Emerging infectious disease; Forest disease; Invasive species; Landscape epidemiology; Phytophthora ramorum; Plant-pathogen; Tree mortality; Remote sensing
TL;DR: This is the first study to quantify a realistic number of dead trees impacted by P. ramorum over a defined ecological region and indicates similar prevalence of mortality in redwood-tanoak forests and mixed oak woodlands at this time. (via Semantic Scholar)

Early detection of emerging forest disease using dispersal estimation and ecological niche modeling

ECOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS, 18(2), 377–390.

By: R. Meentemeyer*, B. Anacker*, W. Mark* & D. Rizzo*

author keywords: dispersal kernel; early detection; ecological niche modeling; emerging infectious disease; invasive species; landscape epidemiology; Phytophthora ramorum; sudden oak death
MeSH headings : California; Ecosystem; Models, Biological; Mycoses / transmission; Phytophthora / physiology; Plant Diseases / microbiology; Trees / microbiology
TL;DR: Application of the combined niche plus dispersal models in a geographic information system predicted the presence of P. ramorum across approximately 8228 km2 of California's 84785km2 of land area with susceptible host species, suggesting that the modeling approach can be used to forecast locations of disease spread.

Why don't our stands grow even faster? Control of production and carbon cycling in eucalypt plantations

Ryan, M. G., Binkley, D., & Stape, J. L. (2008, August). SOUTHERN FORESTS-A JOURNAL OF FOREST SCIENCE, Vol. 70, pp. 99–104.

By: M. Ryan, D. Binkley & J. Stape*

author keywords: age-related productivity decline; carbon allocation; forest production ecology; nutrition
TL;DR: The growth of Eucalyptus stands varies several fold across sites, under the influence of resource availability, stand age and stand structure, and it is shown that resource availability changes the fraction of annual photosynthesis used below-ground and for wood production.

Temperature Responses to Infrared-Loading and Water Table Manipulations in Peatland Mesocosms

JOURNAL OF INTEGRATIVE PLANT BIOLOGY, 50(11), 1484–1496.

By: J. Chen*, S. Bridgham*, J. Keller*, J. Pastor*, A. Noormets* & J. Weltzin

author keywords: global change; infrared; mesocosm; peatlands; warming experiment; water table
MeSH headings : Ecosystem; Soil / analysis; Temperature; Water; Wetlands
TL;DR: It is found that the temperature varied highly by year, month, peatland type, soil depth, HT and WL manipulations, and increased HT did not always lead to warmer soil, especially in the fen mesocosms. (via Semantic Scholar)

Survival and cause-specific mortality of a protected population of river otters in Minnesota

AMERICAN MIDLAND NATURALIST, 159(1), 98–109.

By: T. Gorman*, B. McMillan*, J. Erb*, C. Deperno* & D. Martin*

TL;DR: Monitoring of river otters in the upper Mississippi River watershed found human induced mortalities accounted for the majority of deaths while natural mortality was low, and the relative importance of demographic parameters to population growth was assessed using a projection matrix, which incorporated reproductive data with observed survival estimates.
