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 ...
Stand structural dynamics of boreal conifer, mixedwood, and broadleaf fire- and clearcut logging-origin stands in central Canada
Stand structure has been linked to forest regeneration, nutrient cycling, wildlife habitat, biodiversity, and climate regulation. A review and synthesis of literature indicated that boreal forest stand structure is ...
Identification of wetlands on the Canadian boreal plain and their contributions to stream water chemistry
The Alberta Wetland Inventory (AWI), which is used in a variety of applications across the province to estimate wetland cover from aerial photographs, detected only 34% of confirmed wetland field plots in boreal forest ...
Carbon stock estimates for red spruce (Picea rubens) forest in central Nova Scotia
Carbon storage was measured in natural red spruce dominated stands in the Eastern Eco-region of central Nova Scotia (NS). Twenty-four plots over a 140-year chronosequence were established. Within each plot, major carbon ...
Increasing diameter growth content of red pine (Pinus Resinosa) through intensive management
Intensive forest management can only be justified if it increases wood quality or yield sufficiently to compensate for the additional investment. Treatments such as thinning and/or pruning are typically only applied to ...
