Early survival and growth performance of two oak species and three planting stocks on Hurricane Katrina disturbed lands by John Alec Conrad( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Survival and growth of two oak species, live oak (Quercus virginiana) and Nuttall oak (Quercus texana), and three planting stocks: 1-0 bareroot, conventional containerized, and Root Production Method (RPM™) seedlings were compared. Conventional containerized live oak and bareroot Nuttall oak seedlings exhibited greatest survival. RPM™ seedlings exhibited the lowest survival in both species. Conventional containerized seedlings exhibited greater groundline diameter (GLD) growth and twice as much height growth as bareroot seedlings during the first year. During the second year, conventional containerized seedlings exhibited greater GLD growth than bareroot seedlings in live oak, but in Nuttall oak, bareroot seedlings exhibited greater GLD growth. RPM™ seedlings exhibited similar GLD growth compared to bareroot seedlings during both years but the least height growth of all planting stocks, regardless of species. Height growth of bareroot and conventional containerized seedlings was similar after two years
Long-term stand dynamics in a pyrophytic longleaf pine ecosystem by Darcy Helen Hammond( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Reference ecosystems are a valuable tool for restoration and management efforts in degraded ecosystems. Longleaf pine (Pinus palustris), a pyrophytic southeastern U.S. ecosystem, have declined precipitously in extent since European settlement. Pine mortality and growth patterns were examined in a 15-year re-measurement study in two old-growth stands. Both stands experienced post-fire mortality and short-lived decreases in basal area. Distance to nearest neighbor had a significant effect on mortality of small (<10 cm DBH) pine. To better approximate reference conditions, saplings of five co-occurring hardwood species were destructively measured for bark accumulation and taper using bark and wood thickness. Significant species differences were detected in bark:wood ratio (P<0.001), with no difference in wood diameter. Blackjack oak (Quercus marilandica) had a bark:wood ratio 3× the closest species and steeper slopes of bark accumulation, suggesting that it is a fire-adapted species. These results will inform reference conditions for critical regional pine restoration efforts
Economic impacts of fishing, hunting, and wildlife-associated recreation expenditures across the U.S. South by Jagdish Poudel( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Fishing, hunting and wildlife-associated recreation expenditures have played an important role in the U.S. economy. The 2006 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service survey reported 87.5 million people participated in wildlife-associated recreation activities, spending $122.4 billion on trips and equipment in U.S. Periodic assessment of economic impact of wildlife associated recreation provides a consistent perspective for forest and wildlife resource management. This research used input-output analysis to evaluate the economic impacts of wildlife associated recreation expenditures in the U.S. South. IMPLAN models were developed for each state to determine the direct, indirect and induced effects of these expenditures. The comparison revealed the differences in the individual states' economies and levels of expenditures and illustrated the importance of understanding intra-regional variations in establishing wildlife programs and policies. Overall, this study shows that wildlife associated recreation expenditures had larger economic multiplier than of the other forest based industries in the U.S. South
Growth models and profile equations for exotic tallow tree (Triadica sebifera) in coastal Mississippi by Nana Tian( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Chinese tallow tree (Triadica sebifera (L.) has become a threat to Southern United States forestlands because of the rapid colonization. To explore the growth rate of tallow, numerous growth models were constructed with destructive sampling method from oak-gum-cypress (Quercus/Liquidambar styraciflua/Taxodium distichum) and longleaf/slash pine (Pinus taeda/ Pinus echinata) forests in southern Mississippi. Moreover, stem profile was also fitted with segmented profile models: Max and Burkhart (1976), Cao (2009) modified Max and Burkhart, and Clark et al. (1991). Numerous results showed that: 1) diameter at breast height, volume and biomass of tallow grew faster in oak-gum-cypress forest while height grew faster with DBH in Longleaf/Slash pine forest; 2) the stem of tallow was generally sturdy in oak-gum-cypress forest while it was slender in longleaf/slash pine forest; however, there was no significant difference between them. Growth and taper models provide a tool for managers to estimate future stocking of tallow tree
Economic impacts of USDA Forest Service activities for Mississippi's National Forests and Research Units by Katherine McGriff Brown( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Economic impact studies have been conducted on natural resource-related activities throughout the United States. However, a comprehensive analysis of impacts of USDA Forest Service activities has never been conducted in Mississippi. This study provided the needed analysis of economic impacts of National Forests and Research Units in Mississippi. The Impact Analysis for Planning (IMPLAN) software and data were used to create a state economy model and the state economic data were analyzed for the fiscal year 2011. With US (dollar)1 17,864,243 in direct expenditures and revenues generated in the state, for the items considered, by the USDA Forest Service, the total economic impact was US (dollar)2 22,340,891 in 2011 dollars. This supported 2,962 full- and part-time jobs, and resulted in a Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) total output multiplier of 1.89. This information showed the value of the National Forests to the state's economy, along with contributions from the state-based Research Units

Economic contributions of forest-based industries in the South by Ram Prasad Dahal( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The South is one of the leading timber producing regions in the world. Monitoring economic contribution of the forest products industry in the South over time is thus crucial in addressing critical economic issues and in understanding important industry trends. This study reports the economic impacts for the four forest-based industry (forestry, lumber and wood products, paper and allied products, and wood furniture) for 13 southern states, individually as well as regionally, and compares to 2001, the last comprehensive study of the industry in the South. During the study period, the industry's employment decreased by 33.35% and earnings in real terms decreased by 18.44%. However, value of shipments and manufacturing value-added for the industry in real terms increased by 59.21% and 68.22% respectively. Therefore, despite of disproportionate impacts of the current recession and decline in housing starts, the industry still is an important component of the South's economy
Biomass and decomposition dynamics of invasive Chinese tallow (Triadica sebifera) in the southeastern United States by Allison M Stoklosa( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Recent and anticipated global change has focused concern on the role of forests in ecosystem functioning and carbon sequestration. Of key importance is identifying relevant factors that drive carbon and nutrient dynamics and the consequences of changes in these processes. Systems undergoing invasion by invasive woody species are particularly prone to changes. This study examined the branch and crown biomass and decay dynamics for the invasive Chinese tallow tree in Mississippi, USA as well as the influences of stand and site conditions on biomass modeling and arthropod contributions to fine woody debris decay. Coupling biomass and decay models presents a method for modeling carbon sequestration and nutrient turnover rates at the stand level. These predictions will aid our understanding of the consequences of ecosystem change, especially those driven by invasive species
Feasibility of consistently estimating timber volume through Landsat-based remote sensing applications by Renaldo Josue Salazar Arroyo( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Mississippi Institute for Forest Inventory (MIFI) is the only cost-effective large-scale forest inventory system in the United States with sufficient precision for producing reliable volume/weight/biomass estimates for small working circle areas (procurement areas). When forest industry is recruited to Mississippi, proposed working circles may overlap existing boundaries of bordering states leaving a gap of inventory information, and a remote sensing-based system for augmenting missing ground inventory data is desirable. The feasibility of obtaining acceptable cubic foot volume estimates from a Landsat-derived volume estimation model (Wilkinson 2011) was assessed by: 1) an initial study to temporally validate Landsat-derived cubic foot volume outside bark to a pulpwood top estimates in comparison with MIFI ground truth inventory plot estimates at two separate time periods, and 2) re-developing a regression model based on remotely sensed imagery in combination with available MIFI plot data. Initial results failed to confirm the relationships shown in past research between radiance values and volume estimation. The complete lack of influence of radiance values in the model led to a re-assessment of volume estimation schemes. Data outlier trimming manipulation was discovered to lead to false relationships with radiance values reported in past research. Two revised volume estimation models using age, average stand height, and trees per-acre and age and height alone as independent variables were found sufficient to explain variation of volume across the image. These results were used to develop a procedure for other remote sensing technologies that could produce data with sufficient precision for volume estimation where inventory data are sparse or non-existent
Measuring tree growth by modeling multi-temporal LiDAR by Michael S Frew( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Crown volume is defined as the geometric space occupied by the crown. Crown volume and the change (growth) of crown volume over time can be an important part of multi-temporal forest analyses but is expensive and time consuming to obtain through conventional forest survey methods for large, remote areas. LiDAR-derived crown volume growth was compared to an expected amount of crown volume growth for 220 Douglas-fir trees in the Panther Creek, Oregon watershed. A paired t-test between expected crown volume growth and the LiDAR-derived crown volume growth resulted in a p-value of 0.85. Regression procedures between expected crown volume and LiDAR-derived crown volume in 2008 and 2012 resulted in R2 values of 0.45 and 0.53, respectively. LiDAR measured change in crown volume over time was not significantly different than the expected amount of change. With further research, multi-temporal LiDAR could become a viable tool for forest analyses
