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...
In vivo and in vitro evaluation of Beauveria bassiana pathogenicity for western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis [MSc Dissertation]Download
Western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis, are major pests in greenhouses. The fungus Beauveria bassiana is a safer alternative to use of chemical insecticides against this insect; and evaluating isolates for high virulence has usually involved in vivo studies. My approach examines in...
The energy consumption of greenhouse in cold regions, especially for the space heating, is still large and needs to be diminished either by reducing heat loss or by increasing the percentage of renewable energy usage. In order to predict the performance of different energy-saving designs, a...
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...
Revegetation of Oil Sands Tailings: Growth Improvement of Silver-berry and Buffalo-berry by Inoculation with Mycorrhizal Fungi and N2-fixing BacteriaDownload
The ability of actinorhizal shrubs to tolerate inhospitable conditions while improving soil fertility and organic matter status has led to increased usage of these plants for land reclamation and amenity planting purposes. Silver-berry and buffalo-berry are two such shrubs which are being tested...
There are two reports in Volume I: Visser, S., C. Griffiths and D. Parkinson, 1984. Reinstatement of biological activity in severely disturbed soils: Effects of mining on the microbiology of three minespoils after amendation and planting. 283 pp. Abstract: Soil microorganisms and their...
