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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
