Abstract: Early establishment of white spruce (Picea glauca) in mixedwood boreal forest stands following fire was examined at several times-since-fire (1-, 2-, 4-, 6-, 14-years). Abiotic and biotic conditions in the stands were assessed at two scales, tree plot (5 in x 5 in) and microsite (1 m x...
There are three reports in Volume II: Parkinson, D., 1984. Greenhouse pot studies dealing with amendation of oil sands tailings: Effects of peat, sewage sludge and fertilizer on plant growth, mycorrhizae and microbial activity. 90 pp. Abstract: Carex and feather moss peats from northern...
There are two reports in Volume I: Visser, S., C. Griffiths and D. Parkinson, 1984. Reinstatement of biological activity in severely disturbed soils: Effects of mining on the microbiology of three minespoils after amendation and planting. 283 pp. Abstract: Soil microorganisms and their...
Revegetation of Oil Sands Tailings: Growth Improvement of Silver-berry and Buffalo-berry by Inoculation with Mycorrhizal Fungi and N2-fixing BacteriaDownload
The ability of actinorhizal shrubs to tolerate inhospitable conditions while improving soil fertility and organic matter status has led to increased usage of these plants for land reclamation and amenity planting purposes. Silver-berry and buffalo-berry are two such shrubs which are being tested...
Relationships among diverse root foraging behaviours: understanding plant behavioural types - supporting data
Relationships among diverse root foraging behaviours: understanding plant behavioural types - supporting dataDownload
These are the supporting data for the University of Alberta MSc thesis: Belter, Pamela R. 2014. Relationships among diverse root foraging behaviours: understanding plant behavioural types.
This reports covering the results of the 1977 research, adds significantly to the earlier findings. It is always difficult to predict long term plant responses on only a few years of data; in this case, only two years. Climatically the two summers (May - August) were very similar, with the mean...
Mycorrhizal studies regarding the reclamation of oil sand tailings: Production and outplanting of jack pine seedlings and amounts of VA- and ectomychrrhizal inoculum in stockpiled peatDownload
The major objectives of the ectomycorrhizal studies were to produce mycorrhizal jack pine seedlings in the greenhouse and to initiate a field study on the Syncrude dyke on the effect of different ectomycorrhiza1 fungi on the growth of jack pine. In addition, a simple inoculation technique which...
This project on the \"Long Term Prediction of Vegetation Performance On Mined Sands\" (V.E.6.1) was undertaken to provide management with answers on the predictive ability to maintain different kinds of vegetation on raw sands. The research was designed as an integrated, multi-disciplinary...
Festuca hallii (Vasey) Piper (Plains rough fescue) and Festuca campestris RYDB (Foothills rough fescue) Response to Seed Mix Diversity and MycorrhizaeDownload
Rough fescue (Festuca hallii (Vasey) Piper (plains rough fescue) and Festuca campestris Rydb (foothills rough fescue) are long lived perennials that have been difficult to establish on disturbed sites. This research assessed the impact of seed mix diversity and suppression of arbuscular...
