Commercial exploitation of the Athabasca oil sands deposit had transformed Fort McMurray between 1961 and 1980, from a a small and remote northern community of 1200 people into Alberta's eighth largest city with 27 000 residents. This research project was to describe, ananlyse, and interpret the...
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...
