Re: Publishing The Bulletin of ENTS:Change of Guard

It has been my privilege to serve in this capacity, and I look forward to continuing to help into the future with the Bulletin. I am very willing to help with the transition in any way I can--now all we need is someone to step up to the plate!

Re: 3-Point Derivation of Dominant Tree Height Equations

I'm not sure this will have much impact on how forest growth is simulated by the Forest Service...This paper was more intended as a alternative way to derive height curves using information from a range of tree sizes. Site index curves are generally derived for simplicity of use, rather than to desc...

Re: Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge Part II

Larry--let me know the next time you plan to head over to Noxubee to measure some trees...I'll see if I can't join you. I've been looking for an excuse to get out and measure some big loblolly pines, and this sounds like as good of a place as any!

Re: Bois D'Arc Wildlife Management Area

Jess--You may want to explore the Rick Evans Grandview Prairie WMA (http://www.agfc.com/hunting/Pages/wmaDe ... x?show=551) for more examples of bois d'arc; I remember lots of it amongst the grasslands.

Re: Bulletin of ENTS, Volume 9, 2014, Winter and Spring

Karlheinz--Good eye! I had copied your text into a previous article to help speed the process (allows me to use the existing formatting); I then delete the other article's text. Or at least I usually remember to--in this case, I missed some! I will correct this and send Ed Frank a new version of thi...

Some international scientific recognition for the NTS

While searching a journal recently for some unrelated research articles, I came across the following studies that had been recently published that may be of interest to NTS: Larjavaara, M. 2014. The world's tallest trees grow in thermally similar climates. New Phytologist 202:344–349. doi: 10.1111/n...
