  • Calibrating vascular plant abundance for detecting future climate changes in Oregon and Washington, USA 

    BRADY, TIMOTHY; MONLEON, VICENTE; GRAY, ANDREW (ECOLOGICAL INDICATORS, 2010)
    We propose using future vascular plant abundances as indicators of future climate in a way analogous to the reconstruction of past environments by many palaeoecologists. To begin monitoring future short-term climate changes ...
  • The significance of population successional status to the evolution of seedling morphology in Pinus contorta var. latifolia (Pinaceae) 

    Brady, Timothy (Madroño, 2001)
    A greenhouse study of lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta var. latifolia) seedlings tested the hypothesis that the successional role of a population, because of its influence on selection, partly determines autecological ...
  • Environmental Limitations to Vegetation Establishment and Growth in Vegetated Stormwater Biofilters 

    Mazer, Greg (University of Washington Center for Urban Water Resources Management, 1998)
    Over 100 bioswales have been constructed in King County over the past ten years to treat runoff associated with residential, commercial and light industrial development. Water level fluctuation, long-term inundation, erosive ...
  • Forest Cover, Impervious-Surface Area, and the Mitigation of Urbanization Impacts in King County, Washington 

    Booth, Derek B. (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2000-09)
    For decades, watershed urbanization has been known to have severe consequences on aquatic systems. Although the problem has been long articulated, solutions have proven elusive because of the complexity of the problem, ...
  • Urban Stream Rehabilitation in the Pacific Northwest 

    Booth, Derek B.; Karr, James R.; Schauman, Sally; Konrad, Christopher P.; Morley, Sarah A.; Larson, Marit G.; Henshaw, Patricia C.; Nelson, Erin J.; Burges, Stephen J. (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2001-03-30)
    Our goal in this project has been to develop a robust approach to urban stream rehabilitation, using examples from the Puget Lowland region of western Washington, that blends knowledge from the physical, biological, and ...
  • A Survey of Ditches Along County Roads for Their Potential to Affect Storm Runoff Water Quality 

    Colwell, Shanti; Horner, Richard R.; Booth, Derek B.; Gilvydis, Dalius (University of Washington Center for Urban Water Resources Management, 2000-07)
    Twenty years of research have demonstrated that the water quality of stormwater runoff can improve after flowing in a well-vegetated channel, relatively slowly, at a depth below the vegetation height. These channels are ...
  • Vegetated Stormwater Facility Maintenance 

    Cammermayer, Jon W.; Horner, Richard R.; Chechowitz, Naomi (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2000-12)
    This study had three objectives and associated work components: Component 1 -- assess routine highway ditch cleaning alternatives ("Service Levels") for water quality benefits; Component 2—survey biofiltration swales to ...
  • Technology Review: Ultra-Urban Stormwater Treatment Technologies 

    Brueske, Christopher C. (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2000-09-01)
    This paper provides a review of "ultra-urban" stormwater treatment technologies. "Ultra-urban" technologies are designed to remove pollutants from wet weather runoff in highly developed areas where land values are high ...
  • A Rapid Land Cover Classification Method for Use in Urban Watershed Analysis 

    Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering; Hill, Kristina; Botsford, Erik; Booth, Derek B. (University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2003-03)
    Because of the profound effect of urban development on aquatic systems, characterizing the land cover of a region is critical for a variety of resource management applications. In the Pacific Northwest, this characterization ...
