Effect of Recreational Trails on Forest Birds: Human Presence Matters

Yves Bötsch, Zulima Tablado, Daniel Scherl, Marc Kéry, Roland F. Graf, Lukas Jenni
2018 Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution  
In each forest, we conducted paired point counts to investigate the differences between the avian community close (50 m) and far (120 m) from trails, while accounting for possible habitat differences,  ...  We found that in the disturbed (i.e., high-recreation-level forests) the density of birds and species richness were both reduced at points close to trails when compared to points further away (−13 and  ...  (A) and species (B) between paired point-counts close to and far from trails in forests with low or high levels of recreation.  ...

Closing the loop: short term impacts on physical activity of the completion of a loop trail in Sydney, Australia

Anne Grunseit, Melanie Crane, Paul Klarenaar, Jonathon Noyes, Dafna Merom
2019 International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity  
The built environment is important for active living, and recreational trails provide safe and pleasant settings for this purpose.  ...  We describe the impact of transforming a recreational trail into a loop on usage by cyclists and pedestrians and users' physical activity levels.  ...  The establishment of a separated cycleway in a densely urban area in Australia also led to increased bike counts in the area and in self-reported cycling frequency in a cohort of residents living close  ...

Building Terrain-Covering Ant Robots: A Feasibility Study

Jonas Svennebring, Sven Koenig
2004 Autonomous Robots  
Robotics researchers have studied robots that can follow trails laid by other robots. We, on the other hand, study robots that leave trails in the terrain to cover closed terrain repeatedly.  ...  We show that the coverage behavior of our ant robots can be modeled with a modified version of node counting, a real-time search method.  ...  In addition, we also demonstrate that Pebbles covers closed terrain robustly even if its trails are of uneven quality.  ...

Maintaining Democratic Values in e-Voting with eVACS

Carol Boughton
2006 International Conference on Electronic Voting  
All these principles were mandated as requirements, designed into, and successfully operated as features of, eVACS®, the electronic voting and counting system used since 2001 by the Australian Capital  ...  eVACS® achieves these requirements is described in this paper, with particular emphasis being given to security and transparency and the approaches adopted to ensure verifiability via electronic audit trails  ...  The demonstrable accuracy of electronic voting and counting avoids the unnecessary recounts when election results are close.  ...

Off-Highway Vehicle Trail Impacts on Breeding Songbirds in Northeastern California

DANIEL C. BARTON, AARON L. HOLMES
2007 Journal of Wildlife Management  
Two of 18 species studied were less abundant at sites on trails than at sites 250 m from trails, and no species were more abundant on trails.  ...  We found evidence of greater nest desertion and abandonment and reduced predation on shrub nests ,100 m from OHV trails than at nests .100 m from OHV trails.  ...  Conversely, all 5 desertion events observed were very close (,21 m) to trails and abandonment rate was 4 times higher close to trails (Table 1) .  ...

Territory, Trail Structure and Activity Patterns in the Wood-Ant, Formica rufa (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) in Limestone Woodland in North-West England

G. J. Skinner
1980 Journal of Animal Ecology  
Closely linked with the territory pattern in wood-ants is the pattern of trail formation.  ...  Aggression between close nests is shown. Estimated territory sizes range from 272 m? to 1616 m?. (4) The relevance of territory and trail patterns to intraspecific competition is dis- cussed.  ...

Possible evidence for variation in magnitude for marsquakes from fallen boulder populations, Grjota Valles, Mars

On the map theorem

Louis H. Kauffman
2001 Discrete Mathematics  
In counting the change of from (F) to (F ), we actually count the change in the count of blue curves and the change in the count of alternating circuits.  ...  Note that F(T ), the formation induced by T and the two blue loops, must have total loop count of ÿve (two blues, one red trail, two alternating loops).  ...

Gerd Lupp, Bernhard Förster, Valerie Kantelberg, Tim Markmann, Johannes Naumann, Carolina Honert, Marc Koch, Stephan Pauleit
2016 Sustainability  
In our paper, we demonstrate methods to describe recreational demand by collecting data from interviews and using camera traps in two forests in the north of Munich for visitor counting.  ...  The most used section of the "Forest Adventure Trail" is close to the city and a beer-garden next to the trail. At the "World Forest", the highest use is close to the first parking lot from the city.  ...  The most used section of the "Forest Adventure Trail" is close to the city and a beer-garden next to the trail.

The Association of Trail Use with Weather-Related Factors on an Urban Greenway

Ryan A. Burchfield, Eugene C. Fitzhugh, David R. Bassett
2012 Journal of Physical Activity and Health  
Each trail count represents 1 person breaking the infrared beam of the trail counter.  ...  Methods: The dependent variable of this study was trail use measured as mean hourly trail counts by an infrared trail counter located on a greenway.  ...  Covariates in this model included time of day, day of the week, and month of the year to more closely examine the relation of trail counts and the weather-related measures.  ...

An evaluation of feral pig trapping

D Choquenot, RJ Kilgour, BS Lukins
1993 Wildlife research (East Melbourne)  
Estimates of percentage reduction achieved by conventional trapping on the two sites were derived from two indices, proportional bait take and spotlight counts, using index-manipulationindex measures of  ...  Proportional bait take indicated reductions in pig abundance of 100% in 16 nights and 93% in 14 nights for the two sites from conventional trapping, while spotlight counts estimated reductions of 81% and  ...  Post-trapping spotlight counts located both boars and sows close to unconsumed bait trails, indicating that sex-related differences in bait acceptance rather than differing ability to find bait trails  ...
