Aspen forest overstory relations to understory production
We examined the relationship between aspen cover and understory production across two topographic positions and two management systems within the Aspen Parkland of eastern Alberta. Understory biomass typically declined with increasing overstory, with greater yield losses on north-facing forests...
Assessment of Soil Biological Activity in Northern Aspen Parkland Native and Seeded Pasture Using Bait Lamina
Assessment of Soil Biological Activity in Northern Aspen Parkland Native and Seeded Pasture Using Bait LaminaDownload
Many native grasslands in the Aspen Parkland of western Canada have been converted to seeded forages. We used bait lamina to test the hypothesis that this change has altered soil biological activity. Bait lamina removal varied with both vegetation type and soil depth (p=0.03). Bait removal was...
