The extraction of bitumen from the Athabasca Oil Sands can be considered successful only if workable and economically feasible methods of reclamation of the area following mining are developed. This is the purpose of the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program's Vegetation Technical...
Limited time and access constraints restricted this preliminary vegetation survey to Townships 85-103, Ranges 6-12, west of the 4th meridian. This area centres on sites of maximum development north of Fort McMurray (i .e. the GCOS and Sync rude leases). Eighty-four stands were chosen as...
Laboratory studies were conducted during 1976 to investigate native grasses and legumes potentially useful for revegetation on various soils. Plant growth was tested in various soils with and without the addition of fertilizer in the greenhouse and ill growth chambers. The Genera tested were:...
Relationships between habitats, forages and carrying capacity of moose range in Northern Alberta Part 1: Moose preferences for habitat and strata and foragesDownload
Relationships between moose (Alces alces andersoni) and the habitat strata and forages available to them in northern Alberta were studied within the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program (AOSERP) study area during fall (September through November 1976) and winter (December 1976 through...
This proposal was prepared in response to Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program proposed Project No LS 7.1.1, which concerns small mammal research on their revegetation study areas. AOSERP is concerned about the potential disruption by rodents of reclamation efforts on the leases of...
The objective of this literature review is to briefly discuss and summarize the available vegetation literature pertinent to the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program (AOSERP) study area. It is intended that this review provide one basis for evaluating the current progress regarding...
Vegetation maps at a scale of 1:50 000 have been prepared for the AOSERP study area by Intera Environmental Consultants Ltd. The purpose of this report is to provide background information for discussions relating to methodologies for enhancing the vegetation detail on Intera's maps. This...
This study evaluates the growth of aquatic macrophytes in selected lakes within the AOSERP study area in terms of lake type, and the feasibility of mapping such aquatic macrophytes using the existing FCIR photography of the study area. Field surveys were carried out during August 1978. Ten lakes...
Vegetation literature and maps pertinent to the AOSERP study area are reviewed and summarized. Studies from throughout northern Alberta and Saskatchewan are discussed although emphasis is given to the preliminary vegetation classification described by Stringer (1976) and the vegetation maps...
This report is not intended to be a definitive review of published literature concerning environmental changes which might occur in northern ecosystems as a result of massive industrial development. Rather, it is intended to summarize a large number of surveys and some research of a distinctly...
