Causal agent of lethal new beech disease unknown as spread is monitored

Date
1 March 2019
Abstract

The ecosystem function of headwaters is important and increasingly well-recognized, but institutional structures to administer their protection and management are lacking or poorly developed. Although the reasons for this mismatch are various, one of practical concern is the potential...

Abstract

We explored the pollen foraging behaviour of honey bee colonies situated in the corn and soybean dominated agroecosystems of central Ohio over a month-long period using both pollen metabarcoding and waggle dance inference of spatial foraging patterns. For molecular pollen analysis, we developed...

Abstract

Long-term monitoring of species assemblages provides a unique opportunity to test hypotheses regarding environmentally induced directional trajectories of freshwater species assemblages. We used 57 years of lockchamber fish rotenone and boat electrofishing survey data (1957-2014) collected by the ...

Abstract

Questions: This study compares the extent of habitat types, species composition of plant communities and abundance of individual tree species in northeast Ohio between 1800 and 2014. This comparison allows us to test hypotheses about the drivers of community change, including climate change, fire...

Abstract

An effective management plan for invasive herb populations must consider the potential for regeneration from the soil seedbank. To test this potential, we examined two species, Japanese stiltgrass and garlic mustard, at deciduous forest sites in southeastern Ohio. Seeds were buried in nylon mesh...

Abstract

We compared bottle traps to 4-unit multiple-funnel traps (both baited with ethanol and conophthorin) for relative efficacy in catching ambrosia beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) at four locations in the eastern United States. Our results were geographically inconsistent for three...

Abstract

During the investigation of the sudden and early onset of yellowing, followed by mortality of American elm (Ulmus americana) trees at the USDA Forest Service Northern Research Station in Delaware, Ohio, USA, a phytoplasma of the clover proliferation group (16SrVI) was detected as the putative...

Abstract

In August 2015, H. macra cv. All Gold plants grown in a commercial nursery in Ohio (USA) exhibited dark-brown to black, 1-3 mm diameter, necrotic spots on leaves that were surrounded by a brown halo. Leaf tips were blighted and twisted. Incubation of symptomatic leaves in a moist chamber induced...

Abstract

In forest ecosystems, natural and anthropogenic disturbances alter canopy structure, understory vegetation, amount of woody debris, and the properties of litter and soil layers. The magnitude of these environmental changes is context-dependent and determined by the properties of the disturbance,...
