PTV VISSIM simulation data for efficient eco-ramp control project funded by NCST 18-19

Guoyuan Wu & Zhouqiao Zhao
Our current transportation system faces a variety of issues in terms of safety, mobility, and environmental sustainability. The emergence of innovative intelligent transportation system (ITS) technologies such as connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) and transportation electrification unfold unprecedented opportunities to address aforementioned issues. In this project, we propose a hierarchical ramp control system that not only allows microscopic cooperative maneuvers for connected and automated electric vehicles (CAEVs) on the ramp to merge into mainline traffic...

Geographical Ecology of Dry Forest Tree Communities in the West Indies

Janet Franklin
Aim Seasonally dry tropical forest (SDTF) of the Caribbean Islands (primarily West Indies) is floristically distinct from Neotropical SDTF in Central and South America. We evaluate whether tree species composition was associated with climatic gradients or geographical distance. Turnover (dissimilarity) in species composition of different islands or among more distant sites would suggest communities structured by speciation and dispersal limitations. A nested pattern would be consistent with a steep resource gradient. Correlation of species composition...

Canalization of Ecosystem Services and Functional Dispersion in Recreational Parks

Peter Ibsen, Dorothy Borowy, Mia Rochford, Christopher Swan & G Darrel Jenerette
Recreational urban parks support diverse assemblages of plants that contribute ecosystem services to millions of individuals in cities throughout the world. Drivers of ecosystem services in parks are complex, as climate, management, and multiple species of varying vegetation types all interact within these unique communities. Yet recreational parks are built consistently to a specific typology. Here we ask, do parks form a consistent ecosystem service typology and if so how? We hypothesized that increased aridity...
