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. ...
Climate change-associated temporal increase of tree mortality and its consequences in central and western Canadian boreal forests
Tree mortality influences forest structure, composition and ecosystem functions. To assess how recent climate changes affected tree mortality, observational studies conducted in old-growth forests have shown that tree ...
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, ...
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 ...
Impacts of invasive earthworms on carbon storage in southern boreal hardwood forests
The introduction of invasive, non-native earthworms into forest ecosystems has increased as recreational, industrial, and commercial activities increase in northern Ontario. The presence of these ecosystem engineers in ...
