Forest floor protection during drilling pad construction and its benefits for natural regeneration of native boreal forest vegetationDownload
I tested forest floor protection techniques in the construction and reclamation of temporary drilling pads to restore native boreal canopy and understory cover. By covering and delineating the forest floor I hoped to reduce damage to the vegetative propagule bank, so clonal species such as aspen...
The potential of forest floor transfer for the reclamation of boreal forest understory plant communitiesDownload
We examined a direct forest floor transfer reclamation technique to establish a native boreal forest understory plant community on a reclamation site at a coal mine. Forest floor material was salvaged from an aspen-dominated (Populus tremuloides Michx.) donor forest at two depths (15 and 40 cm)...
