Henry Ring, Wendy Mahovlic; Contributions by National Park Service
R306 Discovery Miles 3 060 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The authors report the efforts of the Exotic Plant Management Team (EPMT) in Denali National Park and Preserve for the 2012 field season. There were no new invasive species discovered within the park boundaries in 2012, and the size of previously documented infestations was declining year-to-year, possibly due to extensive hand-pulling of these species during the last several years. The primary focus of our efforts this season was continuing treatment of exotic plant infestations near the Railroad Depot, along the length of the Park Road, the Kantishna airstrip, the McKinley Park airstrip, the Kantishna Horse Corral, near the Sewage Lagoon, and mile 231 - 239 Parks Highway.

Monitoring of Retrogressive Thaw Slumps in the Arctic Network, 2011 - Three-Dimensional Modeling of Landform Change... Monitoring of Retrogressive Thaw Slumps in the Arctic Network, 2011 - Three-Dimensional Modeling of Landform Change (Paperback)
David K. Swanson
R271 Discovery Miles 2 710 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Retrogressive thaw slumps (RTS) are caused by thaw of massive ground ice on slopes and combine subsidence, mass movement, and water erosion. They can expose several hectares of bare soil that is susceptible to erosion into nearby water bodies. In the summers of 2010 and 2011, oblique aerial-photographs of 26 RTS in Noatak National Preserve (NOAT) and Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve (GAAR) were taken with a hand-held, 35-mm digital camera. Accurate ground control was obtained at 23 of the slumps by surveying the location of temporary targets that were captured on the aerial photographs and then removed. These photographs were used to create high-resolution three-dimensional topographic models with photographic overlay. Photographs were taken in both years at 18 of the RTS. The current report: 1) documents changes in the slumps that had photographs from both years, and 2) describes a new slump photographed for the first time in 2011.

R277 Discovery Miles 2 770 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Long-term trends in deer abundance provide one measure of assessing their potential as a problem for a park. Documenting long-term patterns in deer numbers allows one to evaluate correlations with changes in vegetation (e.g., through restoration of the cultural landscape). With this information resource managers can more effectively identify and potentially mitigate damage caused to vegetation communities and endangered plant populations by deer. Monitoring data also helps managers assess safety risks from collisions and disease transmission. Long-term monitoring of deer numbers is critical in evaluating any population control measures a park may implement.

The Arctic Network Inventory and Monitoring program (ARCN) encompasses five park units including Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve (GAAR) and Noatak National Preserve (NOAT). The landbirds assemblage (passerines, near-passerines, raptors and galliformes) was chosen by the ARCN for long-term monitoring because it includes many species that spend the majority of their lives in terrestrial environments. Specific objectives of the ARCN landbird monitoring program are to: 1) determine annual longterm trends in density and frequency of occurrence of 5-10 of the most commonly detected landbird species along selected river corridors across ARCN during the breeding season (June); 2) determine annual long-term trends in landbird species composition and distribution in selected sites across ARCN during the breeding season (June); and 3) improve understanding of breeding bird-habitat relationships and the effects of invasive plants and climatic changes on bird populations.

Wild salmon, trout, char, grayling, and whitefish (collectively salmonids) have been a significant local food and cultural resource for Pacific Northwest peoples for millennia. The location, size, and distribution of urban areas along streams, rivers, estuaries, and coasts directly and indirectly alter and degrade wild salmonid populations and their habitats. Although urban and exurban areas typically cover a smaller fraction of the landscape than other land uses combined, they have profound consequences for local ecosystems, aquatic and terrestrial populations, and water quality and quantity.
