Effects of alternative conifer release treatments on terrestrial gastropods of regenerating spruce plantation
This study examined changes in terrestrial gastropod densities and species richness associated with alternative methods of managing competing vegetation on regenerating spruce plantations. Data were collected monthly ...
Yield and morphological responses of wild blueberry (vaccinium spp.) to forest harvesting and conifer release treatments
This thesis synthesizes three papers on the effects of forestry practices on the growth and fruit production of lowbush (V. angustifolium) and velvet leaf (V. myrtilloides) blueberry in i) young jackpine, ii) boreal ...
Effects of manual, mechanical, and aerial herbicide conifer release on songbird numbers in regenerating spruce plantations in Northwestern Ontario
This study examined the effects of conifer release with herbicides [Vision® (glyphosate) ], [Release® (triclopyr) ] , and proposed alternatives to herbicides with manual brush saws and mechanical brushsaws, on breeding ...
Life on the edge : the role of habitat selection on vole density near forest boundaries
Theories of density-dependent habitat selection predict pronounced gradients of population density near habitat edges. Population density in high-quality habitats should decline toward edges with lower-quality habitats, ...
Pulse fishing of a walleye population : response, recovery and management implications
The response of the Henderson Lake boreal fish community to a large scale exploitation of walleye was studied. The pulse fishery removed approximately 89 percent (3226) of adult walleye (1980-82) from Henderson lake ...
