An ecophysiological investigation of the jackpine woodland with reference to revegetation of mined sandsDownload
This project was conceived as a multidisciplinary integrated study to determine the physiological limits of native and non-native species to dry, nutrient-poor environmental conditions on a steep-sided sand dike and on sand piles. Only when the limits of survival are known for native and...
Oil sands reclamation guidance documents prepared by the Cumulative Environmental Management Association and endorsed by the provincial government include lists of potential reclamation species and their characteristics (Alberta Environment 2008, 2010). This report consolidates and updates...
Studies were continued in 1976 into the improvement of a five year old revegetated area on a tailings sand dike by the implementation of different fertilizer programs. In June, 1976 levels of available N, P, K and S were adequate for plant growth. However, even where fertilizers were added...
Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Final report of Phase I.Download
In February of 1973 a meeting of representatives from interested government agencies and industries was held in Edmonton in order to determine the need for research on the revegetation of disturbed areas in Alberta. As a result of this meeting a research project was set up to study the...
Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Progress Report #2. Revegetation of disturbed sites. such as power line rights-of-way and strip minesDownload
Introduction This the second in the series of progress reports on the non-cultivated disturbed areas revegetation project deals with powerline rights-of-way and to a limited extent strip mines. The previous report dealt with pipeline rights-of-way and tar sand mining areas. Powerline...
Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Progress Report #3. Revegetation of roadsidesDownload
Introduction This report deals with roadside revegetation and is the third in a series of reports on the revegetation of non-cultivated disturbed areas in Alberta. On roadsides, like pipelines and unlike powerlines there is no question whether or not' revegetation is required. The main problem...
Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Progress Report #4. Soils.Download
Introduction This is the fourth report in this series of reports on the revegetation of disturbed non-cultivated areas in Alberta. It presents a change in emphasis from the previous reports. The first three reports dealt mainly with the vegetation using the soil zones as boundaries for the...
Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Report No. 1. Revegetation of disturbed sites such as pipelines, cutlines and stripmining areasDownload
Objectives: To determine which native plant species might be useful in the revegetation of disturbed sites such as pipelines, cutlines and strip mining areas. To make recommendations of which plants to include in further studies and to collect seed of these plants for future study.
A group of 48 people from government, academia, consultants and the oil sands and plant production industries gathered on November 25, 2013 to discuss the current state of knowledge about shrubs and their current and future use in oil sands reclamation. The Workshop was organized around four key...
Monitoring was continued at instrumented sites which were selected in spring 1976, at Mildred Lake, Supertest Hill, the GCOS dike, and near Richardson Tower. Because of budget limitations, sites at Richardson were only monitored occasionally. However, information was obtained at a number of...
