Bioclimate envelope models are widely used to project potential species habitat under changing climate. Conceptually, these models are also well suited to match natural resource management practices to new climatic realities, for example by guiding species choice in reforestation programs....
Land use and land use change strongly influence the carbon (C) dynamics within ecosystems. This study quantified four aspects of land use and land use change effects: 1) ecosystem C stocks and distribution; 2) soil respiration; 3) soil C mineralization; and 4) net ecosystem productivity. Land use...
Guiding Douglas-fir seed selection in Europe under changing climates: bioclimatic envelope model predictions versus growth observed in provenance trialsDownload
Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirbel) Franco) is one of the most ecologically and economically important tree species in both its native range in North America and in its introduced range in Europe. The aim of this research is to inform the European Douglas-fir reforestation strategy under...
Biochar for Saline-Sodic Soil Reclamation, Phosphorus Retention, and Crop Growth ImprovementDownload
Biochar incorporation into soils influences many of the soilâs physical/chemical properties. The potential of using biochar for reclamation of saline-sodic soils is not well evaluated. Furthermore, how salinity would influence Phosphorus (P) sorption capacity of biochar is not clear. The main...
Soil CO2 Efflux in Response to Forest Disturbances and its Spatial Variation in a Boreal Mixedwood ForestDownload
Soil CO2 efflux is a key component of the terrestrial carbon cycle as it is the second largest carbon flux between the atmosphere and terrestrial ecosystems after photosynthesis. The spatial and temporal variation of soil CO2 efflux can be altered by various disturbancess, which in turn alter...
Reconstructed height growth trajectories of white spruce (Picea glauca) following deciduous releaseDownload
My study evaluated the “true” white spruce (Picea glauca [Moench] Voss) height growth potential in sites released from deciduous competition. Stem analysis, plus re-measurement data from 60 and 80-year-old trials were used. Interpolated site index (SI, height at breast height age 50) of released...
Partitioning of inorganic contaminants between fluid fine tailings and cap water under end pit lake scenario: Biological, Chemical and Mineralogical processesDownload
Fluid fine tailings (FFT) are generated during bitumen extraction from surface mined oil sands ore (in Alberta, Canada) and comprised of oil sands process-affected water (OSPW), fine particles, unrecovered bitumen and residual diluent. For reclaiming huge volumes of FFT, a viable remediation...
