Some items pertaining to vegetation inventories in
interior Alaska National Wildlife Refuges
This is a project for the US Fish & Wildlife
Service, Alaska region Inventory & monitoring
program. In 2013 we did fieldwork in Tetlin and Kanuti
NWRs, and in 2014 in Koyukuk, Innoko, & Arctic NWRs.
In 2015? Maybe Yukon Flats, Nowitna, Innoko, Arctic.
Later I ought to add some exciting photos, maps,
details, etc. but for now just a few of items of
1. a general overview of the field methods
of the project with field datasheets explained,
the short version. (140k, pdf)
2. Some slideshow-presentations in PDF (see
pretty Alaska pictures and maps here, folks!):
a) A presentation on the 2013 fieldwork in
Kanuti and Tetlin that I gave at the 2013 AK Botany forum. It's got the
basics of what we did in 2013 with a few pix from
fieldwork, where we went (the red squares on those
figures were releves; the orange circles/ovals were
potential areas of interest selected pre-field), a
little overview of fieldwork, and the field datasheet
blanks (at the end) that give an idea of what we
collect at the sites. Of course it's meant to be
narrated-over by me, but in reality what people want at
meeting presentations is pretty pictures ...
(because of the pretty pictures it's 56mb!).
b) A presentation on the 2014 fieldwork in
Arctic, Koyukuk, & Innoko that I gave at
the 2014 AK Botany forum. Similar to the 2013 one, with
maps, pictures, forms, etc. except that my allotted
time kept getting enlarged in the schedule (as did
everyone else's, due to paucity of presenters...), so
that it went from 15 up to 30 minutes! So I added more
pictures! 167 slides in 30 minutes - helps fill up the
time so nobody asks any of those pesky questions
that get in the way of my science! (Because of even
more pretty pictures it's 105mb!).
c) A presentation on the 2013-2014
fieldwork that I gave to local Fairbanks
botanists in January 2014.
(Despite my attempts to ensmallen it, its still
d) A shorter presentation on the project
in general that I gave at a meeting of interior
AK biologists in February 2015. ('tis only a wee
