Field sites for this study were established in 1987 shortly after the completion of construction of two pipelines in southern Alberta. The Dry Mixed Grass and Mixed Grass Ecoregions (Milo Pipeline Lateral) and the Aspen Parkland, Montane and Fescue Grassland Ecoregions (Porcupine Hills Lateral)...
Reclamation of thousands of limestone quarries around the world is challenged by an extremely limiting environment, including steep slopes, high calcium carbonate substrates with low nutrients and low water holding capacity. These issues were addressed at the Exshaw quarry in the Rocky Mountains...
Reclamation for aspen revegetation in the Athabasca oil sands: Understanding soil water dynamics through unsaturated flow modellingDownload
Reclamation of mined areas in the Athabasca oil sands region is required by law, with the ultimate goal of revegetating to species characteristic of predisturbance native plant communities. To develop adequate reclamation strategies, an analysis of soil water dynamics is of utmost importance, as...
The results are reported of research into the revegetation of two areas on a steeply sloping dike composed of tailings sand from tar sand extraction at the Great Canadian Oil Sand Limited plant at Fort McMurray, Alberta. One area was seeded with three pasture grasses and two legumes in 1971 after...
The tailings sand slope that was seeded in July, 1976, was considered completely stable in 1977. No wind or water erosion or movement of soil particulates was detected in 1977. Of the fourteen species seeded in 1976, only Lupine and the oat cover crop did not grow in 1977. A comparison of fall...
A field experiment from 2012 to 2013 at two locations in northeastern Alberta examined the short-term success of different fen revegetation strategies following the removal of infrastructure (road and well-pad) associated with oil extraction. Although all treatments resulted in limited overall...
This report outlines the progress made in 1975 in the Revegetation Research Program which is co-ordinated through the Botany Section of the Plant Industry Laboratory. This program is a joint research project co-sponsored by Alberta Agriculture, Alberta Environment, Alberta Highways and the Oil...
This monograph is the first formal public report of the Syncrude revegetation program. The revegetation program itself is part of a long term (up to 30 years) effort directed towards reclaiming and rehabilitating the disturbed land areas. The goal is to return these land areas to a state...
Reclamation of northern disturbances is of increasing importance as industrial activities and associated infrastructure expands to accommodate growing human reliance on world ecosystems. Bryophytes are recognized as ecologically essential to northern ecosystems and effectively promoting their...
