Riparian habitat and vegetation recovery of headwater streams after clearcut harvesting
In this thesis I examined two important aspects of clearcut harvesting along small headwater streams and their riparian zones. The objectives of the study were: 1) to investigate the impacts of clearcut harvesting on the ...
The Fine root dynamics after stand-replacing fire and clearcutting in the boreal forest of central Canada
In boreal forest ecosystems, stand age is a key driver of forest ecosystem productivity, carbon storage/sequestration, and other ecosystem functions. The age-related decline of aboveground productivity is well known in ...
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 ...
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 ...
