Use of an Acoustic Location System to Understand Songbird Response to Vegetation Regeneration on Reclaimed Wellsites in the Boreal Forest of AlbertaDownload
Limited information exists on the recovery of different ecosystem components following reclamation of oil and gas wellsites in the boreal forest of Alberta. Songbird response to wellsite reclamation efforts in the boreal forest was previously unexamined, despite the abundance of wellsites,...
Use of Bioacoustic Technology to Evaluate Habitat Use and Road Effects on Two Anuran Amphibians in the Boreal Region of Northeastern AlbertaDownload
Habitat loss and fragmentation are thought to be leading causes behind local to global amphibian declines. Recent expansion of the energy sector in the western boreal forest of northeastern Alberta raises concerns for amphibians that occupy this landscape. Methods for monitoring anuran amphibians...
Trembling aspen seedling establishment, growth and response to fertilization on contrasting soils used in oil sands reclamation.Download
Trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides) is an important tree species for land reclamation. This study determined trembling aspen germination, establishment, initial growth and response to fertilizer on contrasting oil sands reclamation soils. In a greenhouse, eight soils varying in total nitrogen...
Toward conservation of Canada's boreal forest avifauna: Design and application of ecological models at continental extentsDownload
Abstract: Human development is increasing pressure on North America's mainly intact boreal forest. We outline the need for a comprehensive synthesis of existing data and for effective scientific tools to support conservation of this biome and of the birds that depend on it. To illustrate how...
Working Paper 1999-22
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...
The potential of forest floor transfer for the reclamation of boreal forest understory plant communitiesDownload
We examined a direct forest floor transfer reclamation technique to establish a native boreal forest understory plant community on a reclamation site at a coal mine. Forest floor material was salvaged from an aspen-dominated (Populus tremuloides Michx.) donor forest at two depths (15 and 40 cm)...
