- A modeling approach to identify optimal habitat and suitable fishing grounds for neon flying squid (Ommostrephes bartramii) in the Northwest Pacific Ocean. Xinjun Chen; Siquan Tian; Yong Chen; Bum Liu // Fishery Bulletin;Jan2010, Vol. 108 Issue 1, p1
We developed a habitat suitability index (HSI) model to understand and identify the optimal habitat and potential fishing grounds for neon flying squid (Ommastrephes bartramii) in the Northwest Pacific Ocean. Remote sensing data, including sea surface temperature, sea surface salinity, sea...
- TEMPORAL AND SPATIAL SHIFTS IN HABITAT USE BY BLACK BRANT IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING FLIGHTLESS MOLT. LEWIS, TYLER L.; FLINT, PAUL L.; SCHMUTZ, JOEL A.; DERKSEN, DIRK V. // Wilson Journal of Ornithology;Sep2010, Vol. 122 Issue 3, p484
Each year thousands of Pacific Black Brant (Branta bernicla nigricans) undergo flightless wing molt in the Teshekpuk Lake Special Area (TLSA), Alaska, in two distinct habitats: inland, freshwater lakes and coastal, brackish wetlands. Brant lose body mass during wing molt and likely must add...
- Habitat evaluation using suitability index and habitat type diversity: a case study involving a shallow forest stream in central Taiwan. Wen-Chieh Chou; Ming-De Chuang // Environmental Monitoring & Assessment;Jan2011, Vol. 172 Issue 1-4, p689
In recent years, the Taiwanese government has strongly promoted the concept of ecological engineering in the hope that doing so will encourage the maintenance of the ecosystem and its integrity. As a result, the riprap spur dike is one of the most commonly used measures for protecting stream...
- Landscape context determinants to plant diversity in the permanent meadows of Southern European Alps. Monteiro, Antonio; Fava, Francesco; Gonçalves, João; Huete, Alfredo; Gusmeroli, Fausto; Parolo, Gilberto; Spano, Donatela; Bocchi, Stefano // Biodiversity & Conservation;Apr2013, Vol. 22 Issue 4, p937
In the Southern Alps, the role of landscape context on meadows plant diversity was evaluated using a multi-model information theoretic approach and five competing hypotheses of landscape context factors: habitat quality (H1), matrix quality (H2), habitat change (H3), matrix quality change (H4)...
- Testing the Ideal Free Distribution Hypothesis: Moose Response to Changes in Habitat Amount. Stewart, Abbie; Komers, Petr E. // ISRN Ecology;2012, p1
According to the ideal free distribution hypothesis, the density of organisms is expected to remain constant across a range of habitat availability, provided that organisms are ideal, selecting habitat patches that maximize resource access, and free, implying no constraints associated with patch...
