- ... Green roofs are gradually being accepted and implemented across North America as they can mitigate many of the negative effects that urban areas have on humans and the environment. As rooftops are filled with living plants, individual species need to be tested for longevity and suitability. Twenty-two plant species including herbaceous perennials, grasses, and sedum were evaluated on a green roof ...

- ... Detailed maps of regional spatial distribution of soil organic carbon (SOC) are needed to guide sustainable soil uses and management decisions. Interpolation methods based on spatial auto-correlations, environmental covariates, or hybrid methods are commonly used to predict SOC maps. Many of these methods perform well for gentle terrains. However, it is unknown how these methods perform to capture ...
