    Controls on radial growth of mountain big sagebrush and implications for climate change by Poore, Rebecca E. , Ebersole, James J. , Enquist, Brian J. , Lamanna, Christine A.

    Mountain big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata Nutt. ssp. vaseyana) covers large areas in arid regions of western North America. Climate-change models predict a decrease in the range of sagebrush, but few studies have examined details of predicted changes on sagebrush growth and the potential impacts of these changes on the community. We analyzed effects of temperature, precipitation, and snow depth on sagebrush annual ring width for 1969 to 2007 in the Gunnison Basin of Colorado. Temperature at all times of year except winter had negative correlations with ring widths; summer temperature had the strongest negative relationship. Ring widths correlated positively with precipitation in various seasons except summer; winter precipitation had the strongest relationship with growth. Maximum snow depth also correlated positively and strongly with ring width. Multiple regressions showed that summer temperature and either winter precipitation or maximum snow depth, which recharges deeper soil horizons, are both important in controlling growth. Overall, water stress and perhaps especially maximum snow depth appear to limit growth of this species. With predicted increases in temperature and probable reduced snow depth, sagebrush growth rates are likely to decrease. If so, sagebrush populations and cover may decline, which may have substantial effects on community composition and carbon balance.

    Thought for food : a new dataset on innovation for agricultural use by Hughes, Christopher Ryan , Johnson, Daniel K. N.

    Agriculture, like many primary and service sectors, is a frequent recipient of innovation intended for its use, even if those innovations originate in industrial sectors. The challenge has been identifying them from patent data, which are recorded for administrative purposes using the International Patent Classification (IPC) system. We reprogram a well-tested tool, the OECD Technology Concordance (OTC), to identify 16 million patents granted between 1975 and 2006 worldwide which have potential application in agriculture. This paper presents the methodology of that dataset’s construction, introduces the data via summaries by nation and industrial sector over time, and suggests some potential avenues for future exploration of empirical issues using these data.

    The plagioclase lath in this aphanitic basalt are generally all the same size and are strongly aligned to form a classic trachytic texture with interstitial olivine. A few larger crystals of both phases are observed.

    KBR11

    Like KRB10, plagioclase and clinopyroxene are intergrown in an almost graphic texture, though where KRB10 was dominated by the unknown mineral, in KRB11, that unknown mineral is confined to spherulite-like clusters in a fine-grained quartz matrix. Iddingsite alteration is much less extensive. Western Minerals Inc. as an 'interstitial ferrotholeiite, very highly fractionated…textures are similar to those associated with rapidly frozen or highly viscous melts.'

    SC-19

    The grain size of plagioclase laths in this porphyritic basalt ranges continuously from the groundmass microlites to milimetric phenocrysts. Glass and sparse equant pyroxenes comprise the remainder of the groundmass. Clinopyroxene phenocrysts are patchy due to plucking.

    SC-5-BL

    The groundmass of glass and plagioclase microlites is host to euhedral phenocrysts of three euhedral mineral phases, plagioclase, hornblende, and biotite.

    Fragmental quartz chunks in glass with occasional glass-surrounded plagioclase clusters. Western Minerals Inc. indicates this sample has partially melted to glass with tridymite developed.

    The largest crystals in this sample, visible in handsample, are clinopyroxene, much of which has strong exsolution lamellae. Much smaller are the olivine crystals, which have subsequently been broken into a serpentine-framed mosaic of optically-continuous fragments.

    This thin section has a diabasic texture. While the plagioclase has remained relatively unaltered, clinopyroxene has been almost entirely pseudomorphed by serpentine. Anhedral clusters of calcite is found throughout.

  • Thumbnail for JPN-1
    JPN-1

    The phenocrysts in this basalt are plagioclase, orthopyroxene and clinopyroxene. Most pyroxenes are gathered in glomeroporphyroclasts with plagioclase, though the latter phase is most commonly found as isolated, irregularly twinned and shaped phenocrysts. The groundmass is glass and plagioclase.

    SC-6

    The range in grain size for the plagioclase laths in this thin section is continual from the groundmass euhedral microlites to the subhedral phenocrysts. Concentric zoning and sieve textures are common in the plagioclase phenocrysts. Clinopyroxene phenocrysts are also subhedral, commonly twinned, and infrequently clustered in glomeroporhpyroclasts. In addition to plagioclase, the groundmass contains clinopyroxene, opaques, and serpentine.

    Though clinopyroxene and plagioclase were undoubtedly once more abundant in this gabbro, subsequent alteration has left radiating zeolites, a cloudy film of clays, and veinlets and pseudomorphs of iddingsite the dominant minerals in this thin section.

    JPN-9

    The crystals in this thin section look somewhat out of equilibrium with the melt. The groundmass is microcrystalline and riddled with plagioclase and pyroxenes, as well as glass. Crystals of the phenocryst population are generally subhedral, with rounded corners and irregular twins. The pyroxenes are frequently rimmed by pyroxenes of differing composition. Plagioclase phenocrysts are of differing generations; the first has cloudy, inclusion-rich cores with fresh rims and the second lacks this core. Both may be concentrically zoned. The pyroxenes in particular tend to cluster in glomeroporphyroclasts. The occasional granular aggregate of calcite can be observed in this sample.

    SC-13

    The least altered phase in this thin section is plagioclase, which forms roughly aligned, variably sized laths that make up both the groundmass, which is dominantly glass, and the phenocryst population. A second phenocryst, clinopyroxene, remains only as inclusions in the calcite pseudomorphs that replaced it. Vesicles, clays, and hematite pseudomorphs are abundant in this thin section.

    This crenulated foliation is defined by elongate omphacite interleaved with clinozoisite, sphene, chlorite, muscovite, and the rarer glaucophane crystals. Euhedral though fractured garnets contain chlorite, muscovite, and omphacite inclusions. Hexagonal porphyroclasts of randomly-oriented chlorite are scattered throughout.
