SCIENTIFIC REPORTS -- Climate variability and trends at a national scale
Published on June 12, 2017
Examining the daily minutia of climate, not just temperature, but also sunshine, precipitation and soil moisture simultaneously all over a country gives a better understanding of how variable a land’s climate can be.
METHODS IN ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION - Quantifying apart what belongs together: A multi-state species distribution modelling framework for species using distinct habitats
Published on June 9, 2017
Species distribution models (SDMs) have been used to inform scientists and conservationists about the status and change in occurrence patterns in threatened species. We address this issue by intro- ducing a multi-state SDM framework.
Reply to Bridgewater and Babin: Need for a new protected area category for ecosystem services
Published on May 30, 2017
We thank Bridgewater and Babin for their perspective. We are aware of, and appreciate, the consideration of ecosystem services in the management of Biosphere Reserves.
Modeling activity patterns of wildlife using time- series analysis
Published on May 30, 2017
The study of wildlife activity patterns is an effective approach to understanding fundamental ecological and evolutionary processes
Tangible geospatial modeling for collaborative solutions to invasive species management
Published on March 28, 2017
Gaps between scientific theory and application have typically limited opportunities for model-based knowledge to reach the stakeholders responsible for problem-solving. To address this challenge, we introduce Tangible Landscape.
Divergent responses of sympatric species to livestock encroachment at fine spatiotemporal scales
Published on March 21, 2017
Livestock are a major human-induced threat to wildlife worldwide, especially in forest landscapes where livestock degrade the food and habitat of forest-dwelling wildlife
ELEMENTA - SCIENCE OF THE ANTHROPOCENE -- Telecoupling framework for research on migratory species in the Anthropocene
Published on March 6, 2017
We apply the telecoupling framework to Kirtland’s warblers (Setophaga kirtlandii ), a conservation-reliant migratory songbird.
Otolith chemistry indicates walleye movement and entrainment in a large serial reservoir system
Published on February 25, 2017
Otolith chemistry is useful for understanding walleye movement and is a tool for fisheries management with applications such as informing reservoir water releases, harvest regulations and habitat protection and rehabilitation..
JOURNAL OF INTEGRATIVE AGRICULTURE -- Telecoupled land-use changes in distant countries
Published on February 16, 2017
A study of the spatial attributes of soybean land changes within and among trading countries at the same time.
Strengthening protected areas for biodiversity and ecosystem services in China
Published on February 1, 2017
We report a nationwide assessment for China, quantifying the provision of threatened species habitat and four key regulating services—water retention, soil retention, sandstorm prevention, and carbon sequestration—in nature reserves.
A Review of Ecosystem Services Studies: Concept, Approach and Future Work in Korea
Published on January 26, 2017
We aimed to introduce the concept of Ecosystem Service (ES) and related terminologies such as Social-Ecological Systems (SESs), ecosystem function, trade-off, and human well-being in this paper.
Values, opinions, and behavior of inland trout anglers in Michigan
Published on January 13, 2017
The Michigan DNR conducted the Inland Trout Angler Survey to assess current opinions of inland trout anglers with respect to regulations and management priorities, and to characterize behavior, opinions, and practices of a large sample of these anglers.
Comparing stream-specific to generalized temperature models to guide coldwater salmonid management in a changing climate
Published on January 13, 2017
Using different projected climate change scenarios, we compared the accuracy and efficiency of stream-specific and generalized temperature models for coldwater salmonids within and outside Michigan, USA.
