Traditional burning [01 Aug 2015|01:39pm]

paleillgirl



Here is where I spent yesterday, at Warra National Park in the Northern Tablelands of NSW, Australia. It is high altitude (1300m) montane eucalypt woodland. I was volunteering my help on a PhD student's field work looking at the influence of Aboriginal burning on biodiversity.

At the moment very little is flowering as it's still Winter, but some Melichrus was out (Ericaceae). There were few if any animals about, just kangaroos and wallabies. It was windy and cold, though the sun came out in the afternoon and warmed things up a bit.

My work involved pegging out 20 x 50 m quadrats for long term monitoring and performing fuel hazard assessments. Currently National Parks of NSW are required by law to regularly burn all fire hazardous lands under their ownership to reduce fuel loads for the protection of neighbouring life and assets. This is currently being done at a frequency that far exceeds that which is recommended for the protection of fauna habitat and promotion of vegetation biodiversity.

The fires must reduce the fuel loads of the litter layer (fine surface fuel), under storey layer (near surface fuel), shrub layer (elevated fuel) and lower bark of all trees. The assessment of the fuel hazard hinges heavily upon the bark, as this allows fire to climb to the canopy and to spread fires by spotting. Loose stripping and fibrous bark of the type ranked highly as a fuel hazard is also an important fauna habitat, particularly for invertebrates, but also lizards and bats.

Also the surface litter and under storey and shrub layers are all important for habitat and resources for fauna. The frequency of burning is currently assessed by determining whether the fuel hazard is high or above. In eucalypt woodland and forest this can be the case within a year of being burnt. Recommended frequencies of burning for biodiversity are rarely greater than every three years, even where a vegetation type is highly fire tolerant.

Mobile fauna can move to other unburnt areas of vegetation, but this is restricted by habitat loss, the extensiveness of the fires, and habitat fragmentation. In a natural system, fire caused by lightning strikes mostly creates a mosaic of burnt and unburned patches within a landscape. Charcoal has been found to deter certain fauna species such as lizards and termites from using fallen timber and logs as habitat.

There are many more things to consider in the management of National Parks than litigation from asset loss in neighbouring properties. Currently of all the lands that pose a fire hazard, National Parks are the only areas required by law to impose these strict regimes of burning for fuel load reduction.

Присоединяйтесь, кому это интересно.

Это, конечно, не большой англоязычный мир, но иногда и на русском можно пообщаться с миссионерскими целями.

Hey guys,

I was wondering, I've been working on my thesis, but I'm basically working alone, it's hard for me to stay motivated when I don't have a lot of feedback or camaraderie. I was wondering what sorts of tips and tricks you might have for keeping yourselves motivated for extremely long solo projects?

Thanks in advance!

Workplace Dilemma [04 Sep 2013|07:08pm]

netmystique
Sorry, haven't been on Live Journal in some time.

I have a bit of a dilemma. I find myself in a research department where creationism is tolerated and, in some instance, accepted.

How do I get my career back on track and find a job with people who accept science?

Theoretical Question - Global Ecosystem Catastrophe [08 May 2013|11:59am]

souldreamer
Quick disclaimer - this is for a sci-fi story that I'm writing. So, some suspension of disbelief is required. Here goes...

Imagine that all of the living biological material (plants, animals, humans, bacteria, etc.) were vaporized over most of the Earth's Northern Hemisphere, leaving the Southern Hemisphere mostly intact. What kind of ramifications would that have? (As a note, I'm assuming this is over the following 250 years, and assuming that humans are completely out of the picture.)

I'm aware that it would start by completely imbalancing the weather patterns and ecosystems world-wide. Geology would likely be effected as you wouldn't have plants to reduce erosion in the northern hemisphere. But what about climate? If all of the CO2 produces AND consumers were in the south (at least until life expanded out to the new territory), would that give us a warm spell, ice age, or something else entirely?

What do you imagine would happen?

If we're thinking positively and assuming that the weather and climate imbalance doesn't destroy the Earth's rotation around the sun or something, and that the plant can, with time, recover, how would it do that? What would recover first? The oceans? What would recover last? What would speed up or slow down the recovery?

Any thoughts or ideas would be great! Like I said, this is for a sci-fi story, so it doesn't have to be absolutely correct, I'm just curious about potential outcomes.

Annotated Bibliography software/services? [05 Mar 2013|07:56pm]

zandperl
I'm reviewing the literature before I start my actual research, and my advisor just reminded me today to "jot down a few notes on a piece of paper after reading each paper". Of course I don't want to do this on actual physical paper, so I'm looking for a recommendation for software/websites that can help me do this.

Platform:
If I'm installing something, it's going to be on my personal Mac and iPhone. I want to be able to access it from my Mac, iPhone, and a Linux computer. I have limited install privleges on the Linux box, so in other words I think I need a web interface even if there's a more elegant download for OS X which I might use most of the time.

Cost:
Open source or otherwise free preferred.
I could buy Endnote or Reference Manager thru my school, but due to cost ($114/$198) will only do so if people overwhelmingly say I should.

Features:
Type in bibliographic information.
Import bibliographic information from common university library tools.
Store searchable notes/annotations.
Save a link to the article (so I can call up the article from the program/website).
Export citations to Word and/or LaTeX using some standard formats (APA, MLA, Chicago) as well as user-defined formats (I am working in an interdisciplinary field, and I doubt a single program/web tool will have all the formats that all journals I could possibly end up trying to publish in).

Any suggestions? Anything else I should be looking for? Thanks! :)

General Question about Competition in Science? [19 Feb 2013|11:22pm]

british_spy
I'm a young student in the early stages of graduate school and I have this idealized view that information should be freely exchanged and that science is more enjoyable and productive when this happens. But a week ago I was asked by a collaborator not to discuss our project with a friend I was meeting that day (another scientist working in the same field). Although I understand where they're coming from and I respected their wishes it got me thinking about "getting scooped" and "remaining competitive." I'm not sure what to think--can I continue being my ideal scientist with free exchange of information? Or am I being naive about the realities of competition in science?
