The dominant woody boreal forest plant species were fumigated with 0.34 ppm SO2 under controlled conditions in the laboratory in order to rank their physiological and visual sensitivities to the air pollutant. Deciduous trees and shrubs were much more sensitive than conifers, presumably because...
Interim report on symptomology and threshold levels of air pollutant injury to vegetation, 1975 to 1978Download
Six boreal forest plant species were fumigated in a newly developed environmental growth chamber with SO2 control capability,for up to 40 days at 0.34 ppm SO2. All species showed a gradual decline in CO2 gas exchange which was related to symptom development characteristic of SO2 toxicity. Paper...
A study of small mammal populations (small rodents and snowshoe hares), habitat use, small rodent diets, and small mammal damage in natural forest and successional communities was begun in June 1978 and continued until November 1979. Based on population sizes and distributions, four species of...
Natural Recovery of Upland Boreal Forest Vegetation on a Hummocky Peat-Mineral Mix Substrate in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region, AlbertaDownload
This research investigated the natural recovery of upland boreal forest vegetation on a peat-mineral mix substrate in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region, Alberta. Three sites, aged 26 to 34 years, were assessed to determine effects of substrate (pH, electrical conductivity, texture), topography,...
Peat mineral soil mix has been the predominant cover soil used in Athabasca oil sands reclamation. Use of LFH mineral soil mix (forest litter layers and underlying mineral soil) has recently been mandated by regulatory approvals. Effectiveness of these cover soil types to provide diverse, native...
The purpose of this document is to review traditional and alternative systems of seed and nursery stock treatment and delivery for use in oil sands reclamation. Treatment systems are considered those activities conducted prior to delivery to the field site while delivery systems include those...
