During the progression of an online course, the content access traces associated with each learning activity need to be collected so that we can identify what students have browsed to achieve the goal of the corresponding learning activity.
Most plants had only the main stem browsed, with a few having evidence of multiple bites.
The diameter at the browsed tip, however, is often predicted with regression equations developed from shoot biomass or length or vice versa, with biomass removal more typically predicted from bite diameter (Ruyle et al.
Thus, the changes in the mass and density of bites that regrow in response to browsing and changes in tree height and crown width ought to subsequently affect the future forage supply to moose and their preference for previously browsed plants.
In spring 2002, sampling plots were established inside (fenced treatment) and immediately outside (browsed treatment) the 3 exclosures.
We did this by removing browsed hemlocks from the analysis to simulate deer-induced mortality.
Earlier studies reported a correspondence between proportional OFTK and the proportion of twigs browsed by moose (PTB = number of DPB > 0 divided by number of CAG) (Regelin et al.
The further detailed analysis was based on browsed shoots out of total number of shoots in a plot per species.
