Re: google earth

Google Earth does have the ability to have the default starting location view changed. Zoom to the view that you want to start with, then select "View", "Make this my start location". To start where you left off at the end of the session, you'd have to do this before exiting. A placemark will be add...

On September 4, 2010, my wife, my son, and I visited the Cathedral Pines grove in the Nicolet National Forest near Lakewood in northeastern Wisconsin's Oconto County. I intended to remeasure the two tallest known eastern white pine trees in the grove. The area is a virgin grove that was set aside by...

Re: Northern Highland American Legion State Forest Pines

James, I think that the oldest trees were in the ballpark of 200 years old. Lee might correct me on that if he disagrees. They are located on well-drained soils approximately 5-10 feet above the surrounding water table level provided by the expansive peat bog surrounding the island. Because they are...

Rangefinder Tip O' the Day: Laser beam divergence effects

I've been digging around trying to find manufacturer specifications on laser rangefinder laser beam divergence. Most laser rangefinder beams are elliptical/rectangular. To the user, this means that orientation of the laser with respect to openings in the forest canopy through which one is shooting t...

Re: Found: The Yellow Buckeye once measured at 196'

Geez louise, I'm floored... it's been a while since I've been stunned by a post. That makes this the Boogerman of buckeyes...

Partitioning Diversity

The Journal of Ecology's editor opened a 30 page forum to debate on my brother Lou's papers on proper usage of diversity indices. The editor also made the announcement that my brother's 2007 paper may be the greatest advancement in measuring diversity for ecology since Whittaker's paper 50 years ago...
