Carbon storage dynamics and tree growth response to species diversity in boreal forests
The boreal forest plays a critical role in regulating the global carbon (C) cycle. Both wildfire and harvesting affect ecosystem C. However, the long-term recovery of forest C storage with a diverse range of overstory ...
Patterns and mechanisms of understorey vegetation associated with stand development in boreal forests
The understorey vegetation comprises the greatest plant diversity and contributes substantially to ecosystem functioning and services in boreal forests. Although many studies have examined patterns of understorey species ...
Trade-offs between economic gains and ecological functions following forest management alternatives in boreal forests
Intensive forest management activities that maximize economic gains could negatively impact the long-term sustainability of ecological functions and associated ecosystem services. Understanding the trade-offs between ...
The estimation of boreal forest properties using spectral indices
The field of forestry has evolved to meet several objectives, including timber and other forest product production, tourism and recreation, habitat and wildlife management and climate change monitoring. As the field ...
