Preliminary site-quality evaluation tools for the hardwood forests of central Ontario
There are currently no locally-derived, quantitative site-quality evaluation tools available for major tree species in the tolerant hardwood forests of central Ontario. To estimate potential site productivity, site-index ...
Pre- and post-forest management investigations of factors affecting sediment movement in riparian areas in Northwestern Ontario
The principal objectives of this study were to measure the impacts of timber harvesting on sediment transport rates (mineral and organic) associated with two clearcut areas in northwestern Ontario and to evaluate the ...
Shoreline forest disturbance rates in natural and managed forests of northwestern Ontario
The purpose of this study was to compare the rates of disturbance along forested shorelines between natural and managed forests of the mesic boreal region of northwestern Ontario. Comparisons were made between areas that ...
Soil characteristics of the deciduous forests in Central Ontario and their relationships with site indicies of sugar maple, American beech and red oak
Tolerant hardwood forests occupy a broad geographic range in Ontario and they are important for their ecological and economical values. Although sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh.), American beech (Fagus grandifolia ...
Ecologically-based taper equations for major tree species in Manitoba
Kozak's variable exponent taper equation was fitted for balsam poplar (Populus balsamifera L.), trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.), white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss), black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) ...
