Changes in net ecosystem productivity and greenhouse gas exchange with fertilization of Douglas fir: Mathematical modeling in ecosysDownload
Abstract: The application of nitrogen fertilizers to Douglas fir forests is known to raise net ecosystem productivity (NEP), but also N(2)O emissions, the CO(2) equivalent of which may offset gains in NEP when accounting for net greenhouse gas (GHG) exchange. However, total changes in NEP and...
Many northern Alberta soils have a thick forest floor that houses the majority of soil biogeochemical processes and biological interactions. Microarthropods dominate the faunal communities in these soils, and oribatid mites are the key detritivores that initiate litter decomposition and maintain...
The potential of forest floor transfer for the reclamation of boreal forest understory plant communitiesDownload
We examined a direct forest floor transfer reclamation technique to establish a native boreal forest understory plant community on a reclamation site at a coal mine. Forest floor material was salvaged from an aspen-dominated (Populus tremuloides Michx.) donor forest at two depths (15 and 40 cm)...
Transfer of live aspen roots as a reclamation technique - Effects of soil depth, root diameter and fine root growth on root suckering abilityDownload
A transfer of live trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) roots including the surrounding forest floor was conducted to examine aspen’s ability of vegetative regeneration to establish a boreal forest on a reclamation site. Forest floor was salvaged at two depths (15 cm and 40 cm) from a...
