Microbial communities are important indicators of soil quality and ecosystem productivity in both natural and reclaimed ecosystems. The presence of diverse microbial communities promotes decomposition of organic materials and, in turn, the cycling of nutrients. Coarse woody debris is a...
Environmental sustainability of post mined limestone quarries often requires reclamation to a diverse woody plant community. Woody species diversity may be severely limited if only nursery stock is relied on for propagation material; thus other sources must be evaluated. To address woody species...
LFH salvaged with small amounts of upper horizon mineral soil for land reclamation (hereafter LFH mineral soil mix) has proven to be an important source of seeds and vegetative propagules for forest plant communities. Until recently in Canada, LFH mineral soil mix was not selectively salvaged...
Field sites for this study were established in 1987 shortly after the completion of construction of two pipelines in southern Alberta. The Dry Mixed Grass and Mixed Grass Ecoregions (Milo Pipeline Lateral) and the Aspen Parkland, Montane and Fescue Grassland Ecoregions (Porcupine Hills Lateral)...
In 1981, a study was initiated near Princess, Alberta to evaluate single-lift pipeline construction impacts on Solonetzic mixed prairie rangeland. In August 1991, a further evaluation of the study sites was conducted to determine the longevity of the changes that took place on the 1981...
Current theory on non-equilibrium communities, thresholds of irreversibility, and ecological resilience suggests the goal of ecological restoration of degraded communities is not to achieve one target, but to reestablish the temporal and spatial diversity inherent in natural ecosystems. Few...
