Within-season woody plant growth: Patterns, characteristics, and sensitivity to weather variation as an indicator of vegetation response to climate change
Aluminum spring-band dendrometers were used to measure within-season tree growth at three sites (dry, mesic, and wet) in the Big Thicket National Preserve, Texas to determine what affects within-season tree growth and if ...
Grooming, aggression, and genetic relatedness in Parachartergus colobopterus, a neotropical swarm-founding wasp
I examined biting, grooming, and inspection behavior in a pre-emergent colony of Parachartergus colobopterus, a neotropical swarm-founding wasp, to determine whether kin discrimination occurs between adult colony members. ...
Patterns of vegetation in fire-prone habitats, southeastern Texas, United States
Patterns of vegetation in fire-prone habitats were analyzed by ordination. The results showed that vegetation was highly related to soil texture, but was not obviously related to fire history. I concluded that either fire ...
Biosurfactant production by organisms from an ecology study of a JP-4 jet contaminated site
The ability of subsurface microbial populations to degrade organic contaminants is affected by nutrient availability. A study was performed to measure the change in microbial ecology of a weathered JP-4 jet fuel contaminated ...
