Mesotrophic Lake Biotic Responses to Hypolimnetic Oxygenation
The distribution, abundance, and diversity of lake biota can be impacted by the duration and extent of low dissolved oxygen levels. To increase dissolved oxygen levels and improve the trout fishery, the hypolimnion of North ...
Quantifying Relationships between Ecology and Aesthetics in Agricultural Landscapes
Biodiversity decline and ecological degradation continue unabated despite accumulation of ecological knowledge, proliferation of sustainability research, and efforts to conserve natural resources. This paradox underscores ...
THE BALANCING ACT OF FORAGING: MAMMALIAN HERBIVORES TRADE-OFF MULTIPLE RISKS WHEN SELECTING FOOD PATCHES
Animals face multiple risks while foraging such as the risk of acquiring inadequate energy from food, the risk of predation, and the risk of thermal stress. My first objective was to predict the overall perceived risk in ...
Habitat mapping and multi-scale resource selection of pygmy rabbits with unmanned aerial systems
Assessing habitat quality is a primary goal of ecologists. However, evaluating habitat features that relate strongly to functional habitat quality at fine-scale resolutions across broad-scale extents is challenging. Unmanned ...
