“These issues do not just affect the United States and a few national parks,” said
William Ripple, an OSU professor of forestry and lead author of the study. “The
data from Canada, Alaska, the Yukon, Northern Europe and Asia are all showing
similar results. There's consistent evidence that large predators help keep ...
Ripple and colleagues from the United States, Australia, Italy and Sweden called
for an international initiative to conserve large predators in coexistence with
people. They suggested that such an effort be modeled on the Large Carnivore

Aug 3, 2004 ... One such change that has been suggested - a shutdown of a major ocean
current and circulation pattern in the North Atlantic ocean that currently is
responsible for warming much of Europe - might have other ripple effects that

“The documentation of species abundance that we have in this study is very
compelling,” said William Ripple, a professor in the OSU Department of Forest
Resources and lead author on the study. Researchers did a systematic survey of
channel dimensions, streambank condition, vegetation and species presence
Ripple has led international collaborations to analyze the status and ecological
effects of large animals. Co-authors on this project include researchers at Oregon
State University, Stanford University, the University of California Santa Barbara
and universities in Gabon, the U.K., Sweden, South Africa, Brazil and Australia.
“The more I look at the trends facing the world's largest terrestrial mammals, the
more concerned I am we could lose these animals just as science is discovering
how important they are to ecosystems and to the services they provide to people,”
said William Ripple, distinguished professor of ecology in the College of Forestry
The studies were authored by William Ripple, a professor, and Robert Beschta, a
professor emeritus, in the OSU College of Forestry. In their research, the
scientists explore a concept that has been called "the ecology of fear." The
ecological and historical significance of wolves is only partly due to the actual
impact they ...
From 2010-12, hiking in the Yellowstone backcountry, Painter re-measured 87
aspen stands previously studied by his adviser, William Ripple, and former OSU
student Eric Larsen in 1997 and 1998. Painter conducted a regional survey of
stands across the northern part of the park and also in the Shoshone National
William Ripple, a professor in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University,
and co-authors from Scotland, Austria, Australia and the United States, reached
their conclusions on the basis of a synthesis of scientific knowledge on
greenhouse gases, climate change and food and environmental issues. They
drew from a ...

the problems, and it takes a fair amount of time to correct all of those things that
