Establishment and vegetation survey of 16 Pinus banksiana – dominated permanent plots for the Athabasca oil sands ecological monitoring project in 1981Download
Sixteen, undisturbed, 5-hectare, permanent plots dominated by Pinus banksiana (jack pine) were established along an impingement gradient of atmospheric emissions from oil sands processing plants north of Fort McMurray in northern Alberta in August of 1981. Four plots were burned over by wildfire...
This project on the \"Long Term Prediction of Vegetation Performance On Mined Sands\" (V.E.6.1) was undertaken to provide management with answers on the predictive ability to maintain different kinds of vegetation on raw sands. The research was designed as an integrated, multi-disciplinary...
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...
Nutrient Loading of Aspen, Jack Pine and White Spruce Seedlings for Potential Out-planting in Oil Sands ReclamationDownload
Low nutrient availability and competing vegetation are some of the issues facing tree crop establishment for land reclamation in the oil sands region. A possible solution to both problems is to load seedlings with nutrients while they are in the nursery. Here, I report on results from a research...
This reports covering the results of the 1977 research, adds significantly to the earlier findings. It is always difficult to predict long term plant responses on only a few years of data; in this case, only two years. Climatically the two summers (May - August) were very similar, with the mean...
Of the 16 permanent plots established in 1981, four of these, Nos. 1,6,11, and 13 were destroyed by fire shortly after they were surveyed. In 1982, four new plots were established to replace the burned ones. They were selected to represent the same impingement zones as the burned plots. Other...
The effect of water limitation on tree defense and host suitability of lodgepole and jack pine for Dendroctonus ponderosaeDownload
The mountain pine beetle (MPB; Dendroctonus ponderosae) has recently expanded its range from lodgepole pine forest into the lodgepole × jack pine hybrid zone in central Alberta, within which it has attacked pure jack pine. This study tested the effects of water limitation on tree defense response...
