Patterns and mechanisms of epiphytic macrolichen and abundance, diversity and composition in boreal forest
Epiphytes are important components of the forest ecosystem, but the mechanisms that control epiphyte diversity are not clear. Epiphytes are sensitive to disturbance, but their responses to stand-replacing fire are poorly ...
Influence of riparian harvesting on boreal understory vegetation
In the boreal forest, understory vegetation accounts for the majority of floristic diversity and affects overstory succession and productivity, nutrient cycling, and wildlife habitat. In riparian forests, understory ...
Foliar nutrient resorption and litterfall production with stand age, overstory composition, and disturbance origin in boreal forests
Nutrient resorption (NuR) prior to developmental senescence allows for nutrient conservation in plants, driven primarily by genetics, development stage, climate and soil fertility, and litterfall is the vector for the ...
