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 ...
Thermophilic and mesophilic aerobic biological treatment of wastewater
To achieve closed cycle operation and subsequent reuse of treated effluent, individual streams of pulp and paper mill effluents are being evaluated for their suitability for in-mill treatment. This thesis includes two ...
