DATABASES
   

INSECT DAMAGE DATABASE

This database is a collection of notes on thousands of insect and damage specimens from forests or wood products taken mainly in the United States, some from Canada, Mexico, Central America, South America and other regions. [Image]: more

 

FUNGI DATABASE

This database includes Columbia River basin fungi. Creation of the database was supported by the University of Michigan. [Image]: more

     

QUERCUS GARRYANA BIBLIOGRAPHY ENDNOTE® DATABASE

A bibliography was prepared for Quercus garryana and botanically related and geographically associated species. [Image]: more

   
   

 

 

DOWNLOADABLE SOFTWARE

FIRE EMISSION PRODUCTION SIMULATOR (FEPS)

FEPS manages data concerning consumption, emissions and heat release characteristics of prescribed burns and wildland fires.It is a revision of the older Emission Production Model (EPM) [Image]: more

 

FINANCIAL ANALYSIS

This page includes software that performs financial evaluation of ecosystem management activities in the northern inland West, financial evaluation of pruning ponderosa pine (upgrade), and much more. [Image]: more

 

 

     

EMDS

The Ecosystem Management Decision Support (EMDS) system is an application framework for knowledge-based decision support of ecological assessments at any geographic scale. The system integrates a state-of-the-art geographic information system (GIS) that provides decision support for a substantial portion of the adaptive management process of ecosystem management.

EnVision

EnVision is designed to be a full-featured rendering system for stand- and landscape-scale images. Applicable projects range from a few to several thousand acres. The system is based on many of the original concepts used to develop the Vantage Point visualization system. However, EnVision does not attempt to model changes to the landscape over time.[Image]: more

     

VENTILATION CLIMATE INFORMATION SYSTEM

The ventilation climate information system (VCIS) is a management tool for smoke and other pollutants. VCIS allows users to assess risks to values of air quality and visibility from historical patterns of ventilation conditions. The Internet server allows maps of ventilation potential to be overlain with sensitive receptors, terrain features, or political boundaries. The data apply to local, regional, or national scales.

CONSUME 2.1

Consume is a user-friendly computer program designed for resource managers with some working knowledge of Microsoft Windows® applications. The software predicts the amount of fuel consumption and emissions from the burning of logged units, piled debris, and natural fuels based on weather data, the amount and fuel moisture of fuels, and a number of other factors.

BIOPAK

BIOPAK (Means et al. 1994) is a menu-driven package of computer programs for personal computers that calculates the biomass, area, height, length, or volume of plant components (leaves, branches, stem, crown, and roots) and biomass by fuels size classes by using existing prediction equations.
