Habitat and population modeling as tools for the conservation of the gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus) 

Tripp, Helen (2016-08-03)
Spatial heterogeneity is an inherent part of landscapes and often has important consequences for the movements, distribution, or persistence of many wildlife species. Quantifying the composition, configuration, and ...

Habitat Associations Among Bats on Redstone Arsenal, Alabama 

Gardner, Sara (2008-12-15)
As forests become more fragmented, more research about use of forests by bats at the landscape level is needed. I employed 2 methods to investigate use of forest by foraging bats; mist-net surveys and ultrasonic-detection ...

Habitat Associations and Predictive Presence Modeling for Plethodontid Eurycea hillisi in West Georgia 

Gratton, Betsy (2018-05-16)
The purpose of this study was to identify habitat associations of Eurycea hillisi and use those characteristics to develop a predictive model. In Chapter 1, I gave an overview of the taxonomic history of the species and ...

Habitat Associations of Birds of North America 

Ortman, Brian (2012-09-28)
I examined habitat associations of woodpeckers (Picidae) and warblers (Parulidae) on Redstone Arsenal, Madison County, Alabama. I used maps derived from satellite imagery to construct models of habitats occupied by the ...

A habitat risk assessment and breeding site projection for Slackwater Darter (Etheostoma boschungi) in Limestone Creek 

Roy, Meagan (2017-04-16)
Catalysts for species decline are difficult to identify and are rarely single. The use of predictive models that incorporate multiple factors have proven useful in recognizing major drivers of species declines in multiple ...

Habitat Use by Telemetered Alabama Shad during the Spawning Migration in the Lower Flint River, Georgia 

Kern, Aaron (2016-07-20)
The Alabama Shad Alosa alabamae is an anadromous fish which lives in the northern Gulf of Mexico and ascends freshwater rivers in during springtime to spawn. Populations have experienced substantial range-wide declines ...

Habitat Use of Larval and Juvenile Cape Fear shiners (Notropis mekistocholas) 

Henderson, Andrew (2008-12-15)
The factors responsible for imperilment of freshwater fishes are diverse, but most can be categorized as some form of habitat loss or alteration. Understanding effects of various forms of habitat alteration on single ...

Habitat use, survival, and reproductive success of female Florida mottled ducks (Anas fulvigula fulvigula) using the Everglades Agricultural Area and urban habitats of south-eastern Florida 

Varner, Dana (2013-10-11)
The most recent Conservation Plan for the Florida Mottled Duck identified several areas where knowledge of the species is incomplete. This study was initiated to provide critical information needed for the development of ...

HadioFS: Improve the Performance of HDFS by Off-loading I/O to ADIOS 

Li, Xiaobing (2013-08-21)
Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) is the underlying storage for the whole Hadoop stack, which includes MapReduce, HBase, Hive, Pig, etc. Because of its robustness and portability, HDFS has been widely adopted, often ...

Hamilton Cycles In Multipartite Graphs With Two Associative Classes 

Demir , Mustafa (2019-04-17)
In this dissertation, the following two problems are considered: the embedding problem of when a k-edge-coloring of a multipartite graph G can be embedded into a Hamilton decomposition of multipartite graph H containing ...

Hamilton Decompositions of Graphs with Primitive Complements 

Ozkan, Sibel (2007-05-15)
A graph G is a pair (V, E) where V is the set of vertices(or nodes) and E is the set of edges connecting the vertices. A graph is called k-regular, if all of its vertices are incident with k edges. A k-factor of a graph G ...

Hamiltonian Decompositions of Complete Multipartite Graphs with Specified Leaves 

McCauley, Laura (2011-05-05)
For any 2-regular spanning subgraph G and H of the complete multipartite graph K with p parts each of size m, conditions are found which guarantee the existence of a 2-factorization of K or of K - I (for some 1-factor ...

Handover Management in Femtocell Networks 

Anuma Reddy, Saketh (2014-04-25)
Radio communication has come a long way from 1G Advanced Mobile Phone Systems (Amps) voice to Evolved 3G Enhanced Voice Data Optimized (EVDO), High Speed Packet Access plus (HSPA+) and 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) now. ...

Hands up, don't shoot: Decision factors underlying the use of deadly force 

Willis, Julia (2018-07-24)
Making good decisions at work is an important facet of job performance. Understanding the cognitive processes underlying an individual’s decision making habits may improve the general comprehension of decision outcomes. ...

Pharr, Saiward (2006-05-15)
Elizabeth Hands published by subscription in 1789 her lone volume of poetry, The Death of Amnon. The title poem of this volume is a biblical verse paraphrase, a genre Hands used to validate herself as a poet as well as ...

Hardware Acceleration for Pedestrian Dead Reckoning in Embedded Systems 

Johnston, Benjimen (2022-04-25)
Hardware acceleration within embedded systems can potentially allow algorithms to meet real time requirements in devices where it was previously impossible. Though many algorithms have been developed targeting embedded ...
