Abstract

Variable retention harvesting, with a focus on maintaining biological legacies on managed landscapes, has been practised in the trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) dominated boreal mixedwood forests for about two decades. However, little attention has actually been given to the growth...

Abstract

In the current context of forest ecosystem management, partial harvesting has been proposed as a silvicultural tool to augment forest variability on managed landscapes and to accelerate the development of structural and compositional attributes of old-growth/late successional stands. The aims of...

Abstract

Mixed-species stands present a number of opportunities for and challenges to forest managers. Boreal mixedwood stands in eastern Canada are often characterized by a dominant canopy of shade-intolerant aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) with more shade-tolerant conifers in the mid- to sub-canopy...

Abstract

In the winter of 1998-1999, two partial harvesting treatments that removed 33% (1/3) and 61% (2/3) of stand basal area were applied to even-aged trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides) stands and compared with unharvested control stands. Stands in the 1/3 treatment were low thinned, while stands in...

Abstract

Environmental change, including human disturbance, can have a striking impact on the biodiversity of ecosystems. We used a molecular fingerprinting technique to determine how communities of saproxylic fungi on trembling aspen deadwood change under the influence of silvicultural treatments designed...

Abstract

Multi-cohort-based forest management has been proposed as a strategy to conciliate wood supply and biodiversity conservation objectives. At the stand-level, the approach involves using partial harvesting to generate structurally complex stands, notably in terms of tree age, size and species...

Abstract

Boreal mixedwood management has shifted from a relatively narrow focus on commercial wood supply to greater consideration of the natural dynamics and multiple ecological services. This recognition has generated interest in ecosystem management approaches that include diversifying and adapting...

Abstract

Southern boreal forests dominated by trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) are notable for the biological richness of their plant communities. We used 12 plant community and plant functional group indicators to test the hypothesis that natural dynamics-based silvicultural systems better...

Abstract

The SAFE (sylviculture et aménagement forestiers écosystémique) project was set up in 1998 in the Lake Duparquet Research and Teaching Forest to test stand-level silvicultural treatments designed to reflect different aspects of natural forest dynamics. In the winter of 1998-1999, four levels of...

Abstract

This study is a component of the Sylviculture et aménagement forestier écosystémique project, which examines ecosystem-based forest management strategies in mixedwood boreal forests in Quebec, Canada. Four harvesting treatments, one no-harvest, one clearcut, and two partial cuts (33 and 61% of...
