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 responses following mountain pine beetle attack in lodgepole pine forests of west-central AlbertaDownload
Natural disturbances are an integral part of forest ecosystems and drive successional change. The boreal forest is adapted to stand-replacing fires, which have different ecological impacts than less severe disturbances, such as insect attacks. In recent years, mountain pine beetle (MPB), a bark...
Syncrude Canada Ltd. is producing synthetic crude oil from a surface mine on the eastern portion of Syncrude Lease 17. Hardy Associates was commissioned to describe and map the vegetation types and to assess forest productivity on the adjacent Lease 22 in order to add to Syncrude's baseline...
The alpine vegetation of Marmot Basin, Jasper National Park, Alberta, and the impact of ski activities upon itDownload
Masters thesis, which classifies the alpine vegetation of Marmot Basin, and assesses the impacts of ski activities.
In the boreal forest of North America, as in any fire-prone biome, three environmental factors must coincide for a wildfire to occur: an ignition source, flammable vegetation, and weather that is conducive to fire. Despite recent advances, the relative importance of these factors remains the...
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:...
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...
We investigated vegetation responses in terms of canopy, ground-layer diversity, and ecological species groups using two restoration treatments at two degraded oak barren and savanna sites in central Wisconsin, USA. The two restoration models tested were (1) process-only, which reintroduced fire...
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...
