Floristic structure, composition and depth of edge influence at buffer and wildfire edges along small boreal streams
Within the boreal forest of northwestern Ontario clearcutting and fire are the most common edge-creating disturbances. Along streams, wild fire consumes the majority of trees to the edge of riparian zones. However, forest ...
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 ...
Management, environmental and energy considerations for woodwaste
Manufacturing operations that process raw wood, such as sawmills and pulp and paper mills, generate wood residue, such as woodwaste, sawdust, shavings, wood chips and off-cuts, also known as woodwaste. The decomposition ...
Carbon dynamics of boreal mixedwoods in central Canada
Large amount of carbon (C) stored in boreal forest ecosystems plays an important role in the global carbon cycle. Forest ecosystem C is stored in four major pools: live vegetation (above-and below ground), dead woody ...
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 ...
