This is the list of leaf samples Heather just received.
I wouldn't archive this list yet because there are more yet to come from Issac.  You can use the short list to go with the samples we just got from Matt, and the long list to identify the ones that come from Isaac.
This is going to be a big job if we grind, digest, and analyze all these!  Heather just got trained on ICP.  Maybe we can get it done this fall.  I have a conf call Monday to decide what we think we can do and where.  Quinn Thomas at Cornell also has a lot of samples and we have to compare labs and costs at ESF and Cornell.

Hi Ruth,

Please see attachments for the tree list.  For planning/printing convenience, the 'BEFTreeSamples_MattW-DaveM' file has the 40 trees we sampled while the 'VegData2004-5BEFSumm_Walter-MallardSamp.xls' has all of the stand/plot data with our samples bolded in red w/larger font.  

Thinking over the way Dave and I really picked up our pace once we got through the learning curve of our first plot (C4-1), I would recommend starting any other "green" samplers you may get on board with a mature plot followed by the more difficult, younger stands.  This would enable the shooter(s) to get their shooting technique down while working on more open (yet higher/longer) shots, then refining their skills in the dense, thick stands with more obstructions and sample hang-up issues within the tighter canopy.  -Younger stands required more vertical shooting, which is hard as a shooter is finding their feet and getting used to shooting up - very different from shooting grouse/skeet!

I'm leaving for a wedding and won't be back at home office until Monday p.m.   Please send me an address for the samples and I'll send them out to you.  Thanks!

Hi Matt,

If it's going to take you a while to send me a tree list, can you just
send me the plot list right away?  I know you got part way through C8
but I don't know what you told me about what plots you got.  C9 is
still unfinished?  Melany was right, this should have been finished
before starting C8; I didn't think it was important because I couldn't
imagine that you wouldn't be able to finish both!

Let me know what we've got and I'll make a plan.

Thank you for all your work!  I'm sorry you were frustrated by weather
and equipment.  Hopefully things will go more smoothly on your next

I didn't use excel files to create the figures, so I'm sending along my Sigma Plot files in a zipped folder, including the file for the correct figure 3. I think figure numbers changed sometime after I created the sigma plot files, so please take a look at the other sigma plot files in this folder if the figure 3 file isn't correct. I don't have sigma plot installed on this computer, or else I would look myself. I hope this helps!


These files probably could be archived. I think Jim Halligan told me that my e-mail account with syr  is permanent, but who knows. My other e-mail address is I can only access this account from my office computer, but we can worry about that when my account goes down. I prefer the account anyway. My schedule is pretty full until Friday after 5:00.

 Hi Dusty,

I wanted to get the files for mass. I think figure number was not  correct!
If you have data files (or Sigma plot files), please send them for   
Figure 1 and Figure 3.

I've attached the litterfall figure 3, in hope that we are looking at the same one. I don't have an excel file for this figure, because  I believe I made the graph from several files, each one containing a  different year's data. I will attach the sigma plot file I used,  which does have everything in it, but of course you won't be able to  read the file unless you are on the lab computer. 
I can send  you  the excel files for each year of data, though I'm sure you already  have them, because I can remember you forwarding some of them to me.
I hope that helps! Sorry for the delay, as usual.

Dusty, is the excel file for figure 3 in the litterfall paper available in our document archive?  BB, do you know about this archive?  It should be a goal to bring the litterfall data up to  date (we documented an excel file in Dec 07, which doesn't have the  latest "other" species).
Mary was telling us that the "other" species need to be  partitioned to real species so we can give them concentrations.  We should just assign them in proportion to the measured species.  It's not a lot  of
How to assign concentrations when we have no data is a bigger  problem.

For Huntington paper, you'd better begin revising it if you have  time.
If you leave something for me, I can take them as soon as possible. I am under a few urgent reports everyday! It's not my time, which I can manage. Nowadays, I think national research institutes are not good for researchers. They have money, but no time! This is one of reason to
move to academic area!
 "Mary asked if you understood her correction for the mass for the missing summer 1994 (to be added to fall 1993).  Her spreadsheet  ("93 mass by line.xls") has 5.5% added to all sites.  This mass has to  be partitioned to species before we can use species concentrations  to get
the total flux.  She sent us a new version of this spreadsheet,  with a correction to o! ne of the labels (about dates)."
 In above para graph, I don't understand "This mass has to be partitioned to species before we can use species concentrations  to get the total flux.".
My understanding for this sentence is we need contents after changing mass. If so, please send excel file for figure 3 in version28. It's easy way! How about using weighted-concentrations for concentrations for others? If my understanding is not correct, please let me know.
