  • Anatomy of a Lynching 

    Scott, Kim Allen (Gallatin County Historical Society, 2003)
    The lynching of Z.A. Triplett and John W. St.Clair on February 1, 1873 is arguable the darkest episode in the history of Bozeman, and one of the more unsavory examples of vigilantism in Montana's extensive record of citizens ...

  • Factored performance functions and decision making in continuous time Bayesian networks 

    Sturlaugson, Liessman; Perreault, Logan; Sheppard, John W. (2017-01)
    The continuous time Bayesian network (CTBN) is a probabilistic graphical model that enables reasoning about complex, interdependent, and continuous-time subsystems. The model uses nodes to denote subsystems and arcs to ...
  • Effect of Antibiotic Treatment on the Gastrointestinal Microbiome of Free-Ranging Western Lowland Gorillas (Gorilla g. gorilla)

    The mammalian gastrointestinal (GI) microbiome, which plays indispensable roles in host nutrition and health, is affected by numerous intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Among them, antibiotic (ATB) treatment is reported to ...
  • Energy Landscapes and the Landscape of Fear 

    Gallagher, Austin J.; Creel, Scott; Wilson, Rory P.; Cooke, Steven J. (2017-02)
    Animals are not distributed randomly in space and time because their movement ecology is influenced by a variety of factors. Energy landscapes and the landscape of fear have recently emerged as largely independent paradigms, ...
  • Geosynthetic Subgrade Stabilization - Field Testing and Design Method Calibration 

    Cuelho, Eli V.; Perkins, S. W. (2017-03)
    Geogrids and geotextiles are used routinely to stabilize weak subgrade soils during road construction. Typical subgrade stabilization applications are temporary haul roads or unpaved low-volume roads, but can also include ...
  • The many effects of carnivores on their prey and their implications for trophic cascades, and ecosystem structure and function 

    Winnie, John Jr.; Creel, Scott (2016-09)
    Despite some controversy, a wide range of research across multiple taxa have established that carnivores strongly influence prey population dynamics both through direct offtake and indirect risk effects. Because of these ...
  • Global dynamics for steep nonlinearities in two dimensions 

    Gedeon, Tomáš; Harker, Shaun; Kokubu, Hiroshi; Mischaikow, Konstantin; Oka, Hiroe (2017-01)
    This paper discusses a novel approach to obtaining mathematically rigorous results on the global dynamics of ordinary differential equations. We study switching models of regulatory networks. To each switching network we ...
  • An accumulation of turtle eggs with embryos from the Campanian (Upper Cretaceous) Judith River Formation of Montana 

    Lawver, Daniel R.; Jackson, Frankie D. (2017-01)

  • Temporal Scales of the Nocturnal Flow Within and Above a Forest Canopy in Amazonia 

    Santos, Daniel M.; Acevedo, Otavio C.; Chamecki, Marcelo; Fuentes, Jose D.; Gerken, Tobias; Stoy, Paul C. (2016-10)
    Multiresolution decomposition is applied to 10 months of nocturnal turbulence observations taken at eight levels within and above a forest canopy in Central Amazonia. The aim is to identify the contributions of different ...
  • Effect of cosmological evolution on Solar System constraints and on the scalarization of neutron stars in massless scalar-tensor theories 

    Anderson, David; Yunes, Nicolas; Barausse, Enrico (2016-11)
    Certain scalar-tensor theories of gravity that generalize Jordan-Fierz-Brans-Dicke theory are known to predict nontrivial phenomenology for neutron stars. In these theories, first proposed by Damour and Esposito-Farese, ...
  • OBSERVATION AND ANALYSIS OF BALLISTIC DOWNFLOWS IN AN M-CLASS FLARE WITH THE INTERFACE REGION IMAGING SPECTROGRAPH
