Wildland Fire in the Appalachians: Discussions Among Managers and Scientists - Proceedings By USDA Forest Service
Paperback: $24.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Wildland Fire in the Appalachians: Discussions Among Managers and Scientists was designed for anyone with an interest in wildland fire in the Appalachian region and provided an unusual approach to... More > sharing information. The objective of the conference was for fire managers and researchers to learn from each other so they could better understand and work together on problems specific to the highly diverse Appalachian Mountains. The conference design was unique: it was neither a research symposium nor a managers’ meeting, but rather a synergy of both. Over 40 speakers were invited to discuss research updates, management experiences, and successful technology transfer. Research topics included plant and wildlife ecology, fire history, invasive plants, season of burning, and other topics. Managers shared experiences on how to apply fire to the landscape, how to work with media and the general public, and updates to fire management tools such as smoke prediction models, LANDFIRE, and IFT-DSS.< Less
Black Walnut in a New Century - Proceedings of the 6th Walnut Council Research Symposium - Lafayette, Indiana - July 25-28, 2004 By USDA Forest Service

Eastern black walnut (Juglans nigra L.) is an economically and ecologically important hardwood species that has been used throughout the history of settlement in North America. It was a resource that... More > helped Native Americans in their everyday life, it helped European settlers carve a living out of the wilderness, and it has helped rural farmers and private landowners subsist and invest in the future. Described here is a brief history of black walnut breeding and molecular genetics research. Current genetic research may ultimately lead to the domestication of black walnut, an event that would be a hallmark for forest tree species.< Less
Field Guide to Native Oak Species of Eastern North America By United States Department of Agriculture, USDA Forest Service
Paperback: $63.49
Prints in 3-5 business days
(COLORED EDITION) Oaks are primarily temperate region trees and shrubs numbering approximately 600 species worldwide. Oaks have occupied the nonglaciated landscape of North America since the... More > Cretaceous Period. Fifty oak species are represented in two-thirds of the eastern North American forest cover types and dominate 68 percent of hardwood forests (191 million acres). Oaks have figured prominently in folklore, construction, food sources, medications, and dyes. Great political events have occurred under “charter oaks,” and Native Americans utilized acorns as food (particularly the sweeter white oaks) and the inner bark as medicine (Q. falcata, Q. ilicifolia, Q. imbricaria, Q. muehlenbergii, Q. rubra, and others). This genus, which includes economically important hardwoods, is also critical for meeting watershed, recreation, and wildlife management goals. This field guide provides an illustrated reference for identification of eastern oaks and can be used in several ways.< Less

This book is specifically designed as a guide to highway engineers. It was used as a textbook for the FHWA training courses on the above title. Several methods of analysis and design of piles under... More > lateral loading are in use. Two methods are presented: the method of Broms, and the method where nonlinear soil-response curves, p-y curves, are employed. The latter method is given prominence because of its versatility. A computer program is presented for solving the equations giving pile deflection, rotation, bending moment, and shear. An iterative procedure is employed internally in the computer program because of the nonlinear response of the soil. Nondimensional curves are presented that can be used for "hand" solution of the differential equation. Nondimensional solutions are useful as a means of checking computer output and to provide insight into the nature of the problem.< Less
