Moisture reduction and nutrient retention associated with field-drying forest harvest residues on clearcut sites in Northwestern Ontario, Canada
The increased utilization of forest harvest residues as supplemental, inexpensive and renewable energy raises two key concerns: 1) continued removal may negatively affect long-term site productivity; and 2) because 50-60% ...
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 ...
Characteristics of the boreal mixedwood forest associated with subnivean access by the American Marten (Martes americana)
Habitat selection by the American marten (Martes americana ), in studies throughout its range, has been associated with forest types that offer higher structural complexity. Such structure has been proposed to facilitate ...
Assessing above- and belowground competitive effects in pure and mixed stands of jack pine (Pinus banksiana) and black spruce (Picea mariana)
Ecological principles of niche, competition and competitive reduction suggest that competition in mixed stands composed of pine and spruce may experience positive interactions through (1) vertical stratification of canopy ...
Assessment of fuel quality changes during storage of biofibre and its effect on cost
Bioenergy, energy produced from renewable biomass, can potentially replace fossil fuels and create employment in northwestern Ontario. However, the procurement of biomass for energy production can be uneconomical due to ...
