Forest processes from stands to landscapes: exploring model forecast uncertainties using cross-scale model comparison

Michael J. Papaik, Andrew Fall, Brian Sturtevant, Daniel Kneeshaw, Christian Messier, Marie-Josée Fortin, Neal Simon
<span title="">2010</span> <i title="Canadian Science Publishing"> <a target="_blank" rel="noopener" href="https://fatcat.wiki/container/ropqno4lffgddnzynzjqzx3fnq" style="color: black;">Canadian Journal of Forest Research</a> </i> &nbsp;
Forest management practices conducted primarily at the stand scale result in simplified forests with regeneration problems and low structural and biological diversity. Landscape models have been used to help design management strategies to address these problems. However, there remains a great deal of uncertainty that the actual management practices result in the desired sustainable landscape structure. To investigate our ability to meet sustainable forest management goals across scales, we
more &raquo; ... ssed how two models of forest dynamics, a scaled-up individual-tree model and a landscape model, simulate forest dynamics under three types of harvesting regimes: clearcut, gap, and uniform thinning. Althougth 50-100 year forecasts predicted average successional patterns that differed by less than 20% between models, understory dynamics of the landscape model were simplified relative to the scaled-up tree model, whereas successional patterns of the scaled-up tree model deviated from empirical studies on the driest and wettest landtypes. The scale dependencies of both models revealed important weaknesses when the models were used alone; however, when used together, they could provide a heuristic method that could improve our ability to design sustainable forest management practices. Résumé : Les pratiques d'aménagement forestier qui sont surtout appliquées à l'échelle du peuplement entraînent une simplification de la forêt et engendrent des problèmes de régénération ainsi qu'une faible diversité structurale et biologique. Des modèles de paysage ont été utilisés pour aider à élaborer des stratégies qui s'attaquent à ces problèmes. Cependant, beaucoup d'incertitude persiste quant à savoir si les pratiques actuelles d'aménagement produisent une structure vraiment durable du paysage. Dans le but d'examiner notre capacité à atteindre les objectifs de l'aménagement forestier durable peu importe l'échelle, nous avons évalué de quelle façon deux modèles de dynamique forestière, un modèle élargi d'arbre individuel et un modèle de paysage, simulent la dynamique de la forêt soumise à trois régimes de coupe : rase, par trouées et éclaircie uniforme. Même si les prévisions sur 50 à 100 ans produisaient des patrons de succession moyens qui différaient par moins de 20 % selon le modèle, la dynamique de sous-bois du modèle de paysage était simplifiée relativement au modèle élargi d'arbre individuel, tandis que les patrons de succession du modèle élargi d'arbre individuel déviaient des études empiriques sur les stations les plus sèches et les plus humides. Le fait que les deux modèles soient dépendants de l'échelle fait ressortir d'importantes faiblesses lorsqu'ils sont utilisés séparément. Par contre, utilisés ensemble ils pourraient fournir une méthode heuristique capable d'améliorer notre capacité à concevoir des pratiques d'aménagement forestier durable. [Traduit par la Rédaction]

Runx1 stabilizes the mammary epithelial cell phenotype and prevents epithelial to mesenchymal transition

Runx1 is a well characterized transcription factor essential for hematopoietic differentiation and Runx1 mutations are the cause of leukemias. Runx1 is highly expressed in normal epithelium of most glands and recently has been associated with solid tumors. Notably, the function of Runx1 in the mammary gland and how it is involved in initiation and progression of breast cancer is still unclear. Here we demonstrate the consequences of Runx1 loss in normal mammary epithelial and breast cancer
more &raquo; ... . We first observed that Runx1 is decreased in tumorigenic and metastatic breast cancer cells. We also observed loss of Runx1 expression upon induction of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in MCF10A (normal-like) cells. Furthermore depletion of Runx1 in MCF10A cells resulted in striking changes in cell shape, leading to mesenchymal cell morphology. The epithelial phenotype could be restored in breast cancer cells by re-expressing Runx1. Analyses of breast tumors and patient data revealed that low Runx1 expression is associated with poor prognosis and decreased survival. We addressed mechanisms for the function of Runx1 in maintaining the epithelial phenotype and find Runx1 directly regulates E-cadherin; and serves as a downstream transcription factor mediating TGFβ signaling. We also observed through global gene expression profiling of growth factor depleted cells that induction of EMT and loss of Runx1 is associated with activation of TGFβ and WNT pathways. Thus these findings have identified a novel function for Runx1 in sustaining normal epithelial morphology and preventing EMT and suggest Runx1 levels could be a prognostic indicator of tumor progression.

A functional readout of the gut microbiome is necessary to enable precise control of the gut microbiome's functions, which support human health and prevent or minimize a wide range of chronic diseases. Stool metatranscriptomic analysis offers a comprehensive functional view of the gut microbiome, but despite its usefulness, it has rarely been used in clinical studies due to its complexity, cost, and bioinformatic challenges. This method has also received criticism due to potential intra-sample
more &raquo; ... ariability, rapid changes, and RNA degradation. Here, we describe a robust and automated stool metatranscriptomic method, called Viomega, which was specifically developed for population-scale studies. Viomega includes sample collection, ambient temperature sample preservation, total RNA extraction, physical removal of ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs), preparation of directional Illumina libraries, Illumina sequencing, taxonomic classification based on a database of >110,000 microbial genomes, and quantitative microbial gene expression analysis using a database of ~100 million microbial genes. We applied this method to 10,000 human stool samples, and performed several small-scale studies to demonstrate sample stability and consistency. In summary, Viomega is an inexpensive, high throughput, automated, and accurate sample-to-result stool metatranscriptomic technology platform for large-scale studies and a wide range of applications.

Although soil microbial communities and functions may be linked to the tree species composition and diversity of forests, there has been no comprehensive study of how general potential relationships are and if these are context-dependent. A global network of tree diversity experiments (TreeDivNet) allows for a first examination of tree diversity-soil microbial function relationships across environmental
more &raquo; ... ts. Location: Global. Major Taxa Studied: Soil microorganisms. Methods: Soil samples collected from eleven tree diversity experiments in four biomes across four continents were used to measure soil basal respiration, microbial biomass, and carbon use efficiency using the substrate-induced respiration method. All samples were measured using the same analytical device in the same laboratory to prevent measurement bias. We used linear mixed-effects models to examine the effects of tree species diversity, environmental conditions, and their interactions on soil microbial functions. Results: Across biodiversity experiments, abiotic drivers, mainly soil water content, significantly increased soil microbial functions. Potential evapotranspiration (PET) increased, whereas soil C-to-N ratio (CN) decreased soil microbial functions under dry soil conditions, but high soil water content reduced the importance of other abiotic drivers. Tree species richness and phylogenetic diversity had overall similar, but weak and context-dependent (climate, soil abiotic variables) effects on soil microbial respiration. Positive tree diversity effects on soil microbial respiration were most pronounced at low PET, low soil CN, and high tree density. Soil microbial functions increased with the age of the experiment. Main conclusions: Our results point at the importance of soil water content for maintaining high levels of soil microbial functions and modulating effects of other environmental drivers. Moreover, overall tree diversity effects on soil microbial functions seem to be negligible in the short term (experiments were 1-18 years old). However, context-dependent tree diversity effects (climate, soil abiotic variables) have greater importance at high tree density, and significant effects of experimental age call for longer-term studies. Such systematic insights are key to better integrate soil carbon dynamics into the management of afforestation projects across environmental contexts, as today's reforestation efforts remain focused largely on aboveground carbon storage and are still dominated by less diverse forests stands of commercial species.

Kinases and transcription factors (TFs) are key modulators of important signaling pathways and their activities underlie the proper function of many basic cellular processes such as cell division, differentiation, and development. Changes in kinase and TF dosage are often associated with disease, yet a systematic assessment of the cellular phenotypes caused by the combined perturbation of kinases and TFs has not been undertaken. We used a reverse-genetics approach to study the phenotypic
more &raquo; ... ences of kinase and TF overexpression (OE) in the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We constructed a collection of strains expressing stably integrated inducible alleles of kinases and TFs and used a variety of assays to characterize the phenotypes caused by TF and kinase OE. We used the Synthetic Genetic Array (SGA) method to examine dosage-dependent genetic interactions (GIs) between 239 gain-of-function (OE) alleles of TFs and six loss-of-function (LOF) and seven OE kinase alleles, the former identifying Synthetic Dosage Lethal (SDL) interactions and the latter testing a GI we call Double Dosage Lethality (DDL). We identified and confirmed 94 GIs between 65 OE alleles of TFs and 9 kinase alleles. Follow-up experiments validated regulatory relationships between genetically interacting pairs (Cdc28-Stb1 and Pho85-Pdr1), suggesting that GI studies involving OE alleles of regulatory proteins will be a rich source of new functional information.

These approaches have yielded encouraging results when applied to very controlled datasets containing
more &raquo; ... of familiar specimens. In this paper, we report on the k-nearest neighbors classification performance of two multiscale analysis-based texture similarity approaches when applied to a much larger reference collection of silver gelatin photographic papers. The clusters for this data set were derived from a visual sorting experiment conducted by art conservators and paper experts later extended through crowd-sourcing. The results show that these texture similarity approaches, when combined with a simple k-nearest neighbors classification algorithm, yield workable performances with accuracy of up to 69%. We discuss this outcome in the context of available data and the cross-validation procedure used, then provide suggestions for improvement.
