Interim report on ecological benchmarking and biomonitoring for detection of air-borne pollutant effects on vegetation and soils, 1975 to 1978Download
A set of 11 sites were established in the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program study area to provide baseline information on vegetation and soils with respect to air pollution impact. Sites were strategically located for use in long-term biomonitoring and were described with respect...
Ecological bench-marking and biomonitoring for detection of airborne pollutant effects on vegetation and soilsDownload
Biomonitoring plots established in 1976 and 1977 were revisited in 1979 and quantified with respect to their vascular plant community of the lower stratum, lichen community of black spruce branches, and both soil and plant element contents. There was no measurable change in any of the above...
In 1976-77, a set of 13 jack pine biomonitoring sites was established in the Athabasca Oil Sands area in order to biomonitor both impingement and impact of emissions characteristic of oil sands extraction operations. No measureable air pollutant effect was observed on either vascular or lichen...
