Adaptive and phenotypic responses of white birch provenances to climate variations
Trees have adapted to their local climate, but with changes in the climate may currently, or in the near future occupy climates that are sub-optimal for growth and survival. The goal of current reforestation is therefore ...
Ecophysiological responses of white birch seedlings to soil temperature and phosphorus supply under current and doubled carbon dioxide concentration
To investigate the responses of some physiological and morphological traits to different soil temperature and phosphorus supply under current and doubled carbon dioxide concentration ([CO2]), white birch (Betula papyrifera ...
Regeneration dynamics after fire and clear cutting in boreal mixedwoods
Emulation of natural disturbance processes and their effects is important to maintain the structure and composition of managed forests. In boreal mixed forests, clearcutting has been considered as management practice ...
Identification of boreal mixedwood forest structure cohorts in Northwestern Ontario using Ontario's forest resource inventory, Abitibi-Bowater's continuous forest inventory and stepwise discriminant function analysis
A model was developed to determine if Ontario's Forest Resource Inventory (FRI) could be used to classify boreal mixedwood stands in northwestern Ontario into structural cohorts as proposed in the Multi Cohort Forest ...
Relating genecological variation in white spruce to ecological land classification in Central Canada
Genetic diversity can be seen as a fundamental element in forest sustainability. Information about the genetics of trees can be obtained from provenance studies. Previous research has demonstrated that white spruce exhibits ...
Wildfire dynamics of mixedwood boreal forests in central Canada
Natural disturbances play a key role to forest regeneration, nutrient cycling, wildlife habitat, biodiversity, and climate regulation. A synthesis of literature indicated that boreal forest stand structure is largely a ...
Adapting to change, perceptions and knowledges in the involvement of Aboriginal peoples in forest management : a case study with Lac Seul First Nation
This study examines the involvement of Aboriginal peoples in forest management and their perceptions and understandings of the forest, forest management, participation, consultation and Aboriginal and Treaty rights in ...
Logging residue from the tropical high forests in the western region of Ghana
In the face of increasing demand for industrial wood and the serious reduction of the forest resource base in Ghana, logging is reported to be wasteful. However, the level of wastage or residue generation has not been ...
Prey and habitat availability in the Whiskey Jack Forest (Kenora Management Unit, Ontario) to support a cougar (Puma concolor) population
Cougars (Puma concolor) are the largest of the cats found in Canada. Abundant now only in British Columbia and Alberta, cougars are possibly making a comeback in their former eastern range. One ‘sighting’ (scat and ...
Biodiversity and forest management : five forest management plans evaluated
The five forest management plans evaluated are: Trout Lake, Nipissing, French-Severn, Kapuskasing, and, Whiskey Jack.
