Fire disturbance mapping in a northern boreal forest using AVHRR/NDVI imagery : comparing techniques of change detection and substrate correction
Ontario’s landmass north of 51° latitude has been designated as the least intensively managed zone with respect to fire protection. Consequently, large natural fires dominate the boreal landscape. This northern zone, ...
Ojibway plant taxonomy at Lac Seul First Nation, Ontario, Canada
The Ojibway (Anishinabe) of Lac Seul First N ation reside in the transition zone of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence and southern Boreal Forest regions of northwestern Ontario, Canada. Hunting and gathering of certain animal ...
Effects of soil temperature on growth and biomass allocation in four boreal tree species
Trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.), black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.), white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss), and jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) seedlings were subject to seven soil temperature ...
Stand structural dynamics of boreal conifer, mixedwood, and broadleaf fire- and clearcut logging-origin stands in central Canada
Stand structure has been linked to forest regeneration, nutrient cycling, wildlife habitat, biodiversity, and climate regulation. A review and synthesis of literature indicated that boreal forest stand structure is ...
Influence of fire, logging, and overstory composition on understory abundance, diversity, and composition in boreal forests, Ontario Canada
Study area : Northwestern Ontario
Riparian vegetation patterns and links with surface waters in the boreal forest
Riparian areas in the Canadian boreal forest represent the transition zone between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Factors that influence riparian vegetation communities and the associated interactions with boreal ...
Introduction to the legacy forest small streams study : runoff patterns and related biogeochemistry on the western portion of the boreal shield
The Forest Watershed and Riparian Disturbance (FORWARD) Project is an ongoing study initiated on the western Boreal Plain (northwestern Alberta) in 2001 to incorporate hydrologic processes into industrial forest management. ...
Changes in soil nutrient status and seedling performance in response to harvest intensity on upland, shallow site types in Northwestern Ontario : 10th year results
Although based on limited empirical data, concerns have been raised that increased nutrient removals associated with full-tree harvesting on shallow-soiled sites may result in reduced productivity in subsequent rotations. ...
Effects of elevated carbon dioxide concentration and light on biomass morphology and physiology of black spruce and white spruce seedlings
Carbon dioxide concentration and light interactions influence competition among boreal tree species, though little is known about the exact effects. The interactive effects of [CO 2 ] and light on growth, biomass production, ...
