Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Progress Report #3. Revegetation of roadsidesDownload
Introduction This report deals with roadside revegetation and is the third in a series of reports on the revegetation of non-cultivated disturbed areas in Alberta. On roadsides, like pipelines and unlike powerlines there is no question whether or not' revegetation is required. The main problem...
An ecophysiological investigation of the jackpine woodland with reference to revegetation of mined sandsDownload
This project was conceived as a multidisciplinary integrated study to determine the physiological limits of native and non-native species to dry, nutrient-poor environmental conditions on a steep-sided sand dike and on sand piles. Only when the limits of survival are known for native and...
Interim report on small mammal populations and related tree damage in the AOSERP study area, October and November 1977Download
The afforestation program in the Athabasca Oil Sands area has been only moderately successful, because of the high mortality of the planted seedlings--much of which Is believed to be the result of high levels of small mammal damage. The objectives of the present study were: (1) to determine the...
This monograph is the first formal public report of the Syncrude revegetation program. The revegetation program itself is part of a long term (up to 30 years) effort directed towards reclaiming and rehabilitating the disturbed land areas. The goal is to return these land areas to a state...
Reclamation for aspen revegetation in the Athabasca oil sands: Understanding soil water dynamics through unsaturated flow modellingDownload
Reclamation of mined areas in the Athabasca oil sands region is required by law, with the ultimate goal of revegetating to species characteristic of predisturbance native plant communities. To develop adequate reclamation strategies, an analysis of soil water dynamics is of utmost importance, as...
The tailings sand slope that was seeded in July, 1976, was considered completely stable in 1977. No wind or water erosion or movement of soil particulates was detected in 1977. Of the fourteen species seeded in 1976, only Lupine and the oat cover crop did not grow in 1977. A comparison of fall...
Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Report No. 1. Revegetation of disturbed sites such as pipelines, cutlines and stripmining areasDownload
Objectives: To determine which native plant species might be useful in the revegetation of disturbed sites such as pipelines, cutlines and strip mining areas. To make recommendations of which plants to include in further studies and to collect seed of these plants for future study.
Reclamation of northern disturbances is of increasing importance as industrial activities and associated infrastructure expands to accommodate growing human reliance on world ecosystems. Bryophytes are recognized as ecologically essential to northern ecosystems and effectively promoting their...
Reclamation of thousands of limestone quarries around the world is challenged by an extremely limiting environment, including steep slopes, high calcium carbonate substrates with low nutrients and low water holding capacity. These issues were addressed at the Exshaw quarry in the Rocky Mountains...
