Baseline Growth Performance Levels and Assessment Procedures for Commercial Tree Species in Alberta's Mountains and FoothillsDownload
Field work was undertaken on cut-over or burned sites during the summer of 1986 to acquire data on juvenile height development of commercial tree species growing in coal-bearing areas of the Eastern Slopes of Alberta. These data were used to define reasonable expectations of early growth...
Ectomycorrhizae of Jack Pine and Green Alder: Assessment for the Need for Innoculation, Development of Innoculation Techniques, and Outplanting Trials on Oil Sands TailingsDownload
The overall objectives of these studies were to characterize the mycorrhizal status of jack pine and green alder which are prime candidates as reclamation species for oil sand tailings and to determine the potential benefits of mycorrhizae on plant performance. This entailed determining the...
Mycorrhizal studies regarding the reclamation of oil sand tailings: Production and outplanting of jack pine seedlings and amounts of VA- and ectomychrrhizal inoculum in stockpiled peatDownload
The major objectives of the ectomycorrhizal studies were to produce mycorrhizal jack pine seedlings in the greenhouse and to initiate a field study on the Syncrude dyke on the effect of different ectomycorrhiza1 fungi on the growth of jack pine. In addition, a simple inoculation technique which...
Wild Rose Consulting, Inc. (Edmonton) and the Vegetation Branch of AEC (Vegreville) began a four year project in spring of 1990 to collect, multiply, evaluate, and select native legume species for inclusion in a native seed mixture being developed at AEC for reclamation in the mountains and...
Treatment plots were established on the Syncrude Canada Ltd. Oil sands mine site to test the effect of a variety of mixtures of peat, mineral overburden, and tailings sand on establishment of an initial vegetation cover and productivity of planted trees and shrubs. Treatments consisted of nine...
In the summer of 1990, research plots were designed and constructed on the Syncrude Canada Ltd., mine site at Mildred lake to test the effect of thickness and quality of replaced soil over tailings sand on the performance of trees and shrubs. Treatments included three cap thicknesses (70, 50 and...
The Waste Dump Design for Erosion Control study was initiated in 1983. Several foothills/mountain coal mine waste dumps were selected for the purpose of evaluating the effects of final configuration on the amount of surface erosion occurring on those dump surfaces. A series of research plots was...
