A Conceptual Framework for the Spruce Budworm Early Intervention Strategy: Can Outbreaks be Stopped?
Johns et al. in: Forests (2019), 10:10, Article 910

Figure 1 A conceptual framework for Spruce budworm Early Intervention Strategy (EIS) program illustrating the relationships between its different components. Double-equilibrium population dynamics provides the core ecological justification for EIS. In turn, the aims of EIS dictate monitoring and treatment prioritization protocol, population control practices and tactics, and the criteria used in cost–benefit analyses. These particular components are highly dependent upon one another, in that challenges or innovations in one component will likely influence the efficacy or feasibility of the others. Proactive communications and outreach are essential for disseminating information and garnering social license to allow all other aspects of the program to operate. Numbers denote the section of each topic within the body of the article.

The Composition and Height of Saplings Capturing Silvicultural Gaps at Two Long-Term Experiments in Managed Northern Hardwood Forests
Knapp, Webster, Kern in: Forests (2019), 10:10, Article 855

Figure 1 The relative abundance of major species in two group-selection study sites in northern hardwood forests of the upper Great Lakes, USA: (a) Divide Canopy Gap Study (DCGS); (b) Yellow Birch Legacy Project (YBLP). Reference canopies were measured in fixed-radius plots near experimental openings in the year prior to harvest in each respective study. Advance regenerations were approximated as saplings remaining 2-years post-harvest, >0.5 m height in the YBLP and >0.6 m height in the DCGS. Composition of gap-capturing saplings described in experimental group-selection openings was measured at 15 years post-harvest in the YBLP and 23 years post-harvest in the DCGS. Error bars represent 95% confidence intervals. MRPP species compositional groupings are shown in Table 2.
