The article offrs information on how to properly map a tree footprint to a more defined position to create a footprint in the same shape and proportion. The use of the Archer/MapSmart/Impulse 200 LR system to map tree footprints on a smaller scale is mentioned. It offers information on the Native Tree Society (NTS), an interest group of the most renowned forest researchers in the world which do not only look for spectacular trees but also measure, observe, and describe the trees they visit.

    Robust thermal dissipation sensors of variable length (3 to 30 cm) were developed to overcome limitations to the measurement of radial profiles of sap flow in large-diameter tropical trees with deep sapwood. The effective measuring length of the custom-made sensors was reduced to 1 cm at the tip...

    This article provides information on the plant Poison Ivy found in New York. The plant persists successfully as a ground cover as the forest grows up around it. It can also be a bush, or a vine enabling its growth in fields, forests, sand dunes, or up tree trunks. It is poisonous to people but...
