Global environmental change effects on forest dynamics: lessons from permanent sample plot networks
Global environmental change caused by anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gasses is a major threat to forest ecosystems globally. Before we can begin to adequately mitigate these threats, we first must understand how ...
Effects of water availability, longer photoperiod, and elevated [CO2] on the potential of the northward migration in trembling aspen (populus tremuloides michx.)
Based on climate envelope models, boreal tree species may migrate to higher latitudes (approximately 10˚N toward the north) in response to rapid climate changes by the end of this century. Multiple factors will likely ...
Climate change impacts on the health and livelihoods of Indigenous communities in Northern Ontario
Climate change is expected to affect people’s health and livelihoods in northern Indigenous communities more adversely than in others due to existing socio-economic conditions and direct reliance on the environment to ...
Sustainability analysis of carbon dioxide emissions on combustion of biomass for electricity
The transition towards renewable, low-carbon energy is a fundamental element of climate change mitigation. Many countries around the world have set their decarbonization strategies to reduce emissions. The European Union ...
The effects of climate change on the growth and spawning phenology of fishes in aquatic boreal environments
Global climate change is occurring and observed warming patterns have had significant impacts on aquatic environments as trends in water temperature are closely related to trends in air temperature. In ectothermic organisms ...
The effect of cottage development on aquatic macroinvertebrate communities and water quality in central Ontario lakes
In Canada, over 3 million freshwater lakes provide a wide range of ecological, financial, aesthetic, and public health services for their citizens, communities, and tourists. This is especially true for regions like ...
