Northern Research Station

  1.  GTR-NRS-58.  Urban and community forests of the South Central East region: Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee.  Nowak, David J.; Greenfield, Eric J.  46p.  

This report details how land cover and urbanization vary within the states of Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee by community (incorporated and census designated places), county subdivision, and county. Specifically this report provides critical urban and community forestry information for each state including human population characteristics and trends, changes in urban and community lands, tree canopy and impervious surface cover characteristics, distribution of land-cover classes, a relative comparison of urban and community forests among local government types, determination of priority areas for tree planting, and a summary of urban tree benefits. Report information can improve the understanding, management, and planning of urban and community forests. This data is reported for each state on the CD provided in the back of this book and may be accessed by state at: http://www.nrs.fs.fed.us/data/urban.

 

  2.  GTR-NRS-59.  Urban and community forests of the South Central West region: Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas.  Nowak, David J.; Greenfield, Eric J.  46p.  

This report details how land cover and urbanization vary within the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas by community (incorporated and census designated places), county subdivision, and county. Specifically this report provides critical urban and community forestry information for each state including human population characteristics and trends, changes in urban and community lands, tree canopy and impervious surface cover characteristics, distribution of land-cover classes, a relative comparison of urban and community forests among local government types, determination of priority areas for tree planting, and a summary of urban tree benefits.

  3.  GTR-NRS-61.  The Forest Inventory and Analysis Database Version 4.0: Database Description and Users Manual for Phase 3.  Woodall, Christopher W.; Conkling, Barbara L.; Amacher, Michael C.; Coulston, John W.; Jovan, Sarah; Perry, Charles H.; Schulz, Beth; Smith, Gretchen C.; Will Wolf, Susan.  180p.  

Describes the structure of the Forest Inventory and Analysis Database (FIADB) 4.0 for phase 3 indicators. The FIADB structure provides a consistent framework for storing forest health monitoring data across all ownerships for the entire United States. These data are available to the public.

 

  4.  RP-NRS-10.  Reptile, amphibian, and small mammal species associated with natural gas development in the Monongahela National Forest, West Virginia.  Moseley, Kurtis R.; Ford, W. Mark; Edwards, John W.; Adams, Mary B.  14p.  

Burgeoning energy demand in the United States has led to increased natural gas exploration in the Appalachian Basin. Despite increasing natural gas development in the region, data about its impacts to wildlife are lacking. Our objective was to assess past and ongoing natural gas development impacts on reptiles, amphibians, and small mammals in the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia. We sampled 40 gas well sites and compared amphibian, reptile, and small mammal captures among active producing, plugged (inactive), and storage well types. Total species richness and diversity were greater at storage gas well sites than at plugged wells. Although natural gas development adversely impacts moisture-sensitive woodland salamanders, our results suggest that maintained gas well openings may benefit other herpetofauna and small mammal species that use early successional habitat within predominately forested central Appalachian landscapes.
