The Axial Impact Response and Plantar Load Distribution of the Hybrid III and Military Lower Extremity Under Altered Ankle Postures.

J Biomech Eng 2022 Jan;144(1)

Department of Mechanical Engineering, School of Biomedical Engineering, McMaster University, 1280 Main Street West, Hamilton, ON L8S 4L8, Canada.

Foot injuries as a result of automotive collisions are frequent and impactful. Anthropomorphic test devices (ATDs), used to assess injury risk during impact scenarios such as motor vehicle collisions, typically assess risk of foot/ankle injuries by analyzing data in tibia load cells. The peak axial force and the tibia index are metrics commonly used to evaluate risk of injury to the lower extremity but do not directly account for injury risk to the foot, or the risk of injury associated with out-of-position loading.

Nat Ecol Evol 2019 12 11;3(12):1754-1761. Epub 2019 Nov 11.

Department of Anthropology, University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX, USA.

Higher levels of taxonomic and evolutionary diversity are expected to maximize ecosystem function, yet their relative importance in driving variation in ecosystem function at large scales in diverse forests is unknown. Using 90 inventory plots across intact, lowland, terra firme, Amazonian forests and a new phylogeny including 526 angiosperm genera, we investigated the association between taxonomic and evolutionary metrics of diversity and two key measures of ecosystem function: aboveground wood productivity and biomass storage. While taxonomic and phylogenetic diversity were not important predictors of variation in biomass, both emerged as independent predictors of wood productivity. Read More

Field methods for sampling tree height for tropical forest biomass estimation.

Methods Ecol Evol 2018 May 13;9(5):1179-1189. Epub 2018 Feb 13.

Environmental and Life Sciences Programme Faculty of Science Universiti Brunei Darussalam Brunei-Muara Brunei Darussalam.

Quantifying the relationship between tree diameter and height is a key component of efforts to estimate biomass and carbon stocks in tropical forests. Although substantial site-to-site variation in height-diameter allometries has been documented, the time consuming nature of measuring all tree heights in an inventory plot means that most studies do not include height, or else use generic pan-tropical or regional allometric equations to estimate height.Using a pan-tropical dataset of 73 plots where at least 150 trees had in-field ground-based height measurements, we examined how the number of trees sampled affects the performance of locally derived height-diameter allometries, and evaluated the performance of different methods for sampling trees for height measurement.
