Estimation of total height, growth, and mortality of forest trees in Missouri
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
A model for predicting total tree height as a function of tree diameter was calibrated for twelve tree species common to the Missouri Ozarks. Model coefficients were derived from nearly 10,000 observed trees. The calibrated model did a good job...
Simulating cottonwood tree growth in flood plains using the LIGNUM modeling method
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
simulation model, was applied to simulation of the cottonwood growth in a flood plain area in central Missouri. The key characteristics of the LIGNUM model are the linkage between tree spatial structure and physiological function. L-system was adopted...
Analysis of landscape characteristics surrounding deer vehicle accidents in St. Louis County, Missouri
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
). This study quantifies landscape factors that contribute to deer vehicle accidents in St. Louis County, Missouri, and provides a predictive model of areas in which DVA's would likely be found. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) was used to plot deer...
