Aspen (Populus tremuloides) root suckering as influenced by log storage, traffic-induced-root wounding, slash accumulation, and soil compactionDownload
The objective of this thesis was to determine how aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) root systems and suckering are affected by decking area (site of log processing and storage) disturbances and seasonal timing of these disturbances. In a field study, summer-built log decks reduced regeneration...
The western boreal forest of Canada, where the upland regions are dominated by stands of aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) and spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss), is now home to novel ecosystems, i.e.; ecosystems composed of reclaimed stands formed from trees planted on constructed...
Legacy propagule banks of salvaged topsoils are excellent sources of plant propagules for reclamation of mine sites. However, prior studies show that less than 50% of species found in original propagule banks actually establish. We hypothesize that the expression of this legacy propagule bank is...
