Merging tidal datums and Lidar elevation for species distribution modeling in South San Francisco Bay
Because high tides increase in elevation across South San Francisco Bay, and because tidal inundation structures tidal salt marshes plant zonation, species distribution models (SDMs) of salt marsh plants require integrated, spatially continuous measures of tidal patterns and elevation.
An object based image analysis approach to testing the effect of flowering and patch size on Limonium ramosissimum detection using CIR and IKONOS imagery
Remote sensing is a useful tool to detect and map invasive plants, but detection success depends on the spectral properties of individual species, their context, and the imagery usedfor mapping.
Identifying Limonium ramosissimum populations using a species distribution model and ground searches in tidal marshes of South San Francisco Bay
Early detection of invasive species is required for cost effective management of plant invasions, but finding nascent populations often requires extensive field surveys
Sediment Dynamics and Vegetation Recruitment in Newly Restored Salt Ponds: Final Report for Pond A6 Sediment Study
for the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project (SBSPRP or the project) by the University of San Francisco and H. T. Harvey & Associates. This work focused on a key uncertainty affecting the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project planning and adaptive management process (EDAW et al.
