Abstract

Throughout eastern North America, oaks (Quercus) are a foundational tree species, but are regenerating poorly, particularly on mesic sites. This regeneration failure has spurred development of new management practices that create heterogeneous regeneration conditions that better match oak's...

Abstract

In Canada, the annual allowable cut (AAC) sets the harvest limit of roundwood and aims to maintain the long-term productive capacity of the forest while taking into account other values such as biodiversity and needs of stakeholders. Current harvest levels in the province of Quebec, which feed an...

Abstract

This annotated bibliography contains 518 citations, mostly of North American and European origin. It focuses on the following eight species of commercial importance in Canada: white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss), black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.), jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.),...

Abstract

This study measured changes in forest composition that have occurred since the preindustrial era along the toposequence of the Gatineau River Valley, Quebec, Canada (5650 km2), based on survey records prior to colonization (1804-1864) and recent forest inventories (1982-2006). Changes in forest...

Abstract

Biomass allocation is the most useful tool for studying plant structure and function, and plays an important role in forest ecosystem carbon cycling. In this study, we selected twelve dominant species, e.g., Betula platyphylla, Acer mandshuricum, Ulmus japonica, Pinus koraiensis, Juglans...

Abstract

Commercial forestry increasingly aims at both optimizing timber production and maintaining species diversity. To maintain the diversity of the species-rich group of wood-inhabiting fungi, effective forest conservation concepts that include the enrichment of dead wood in commercial forests are...

AbstractFull Text

Adapting forests to climate change involves silvicultural measures such as use of a range of species and the fostering of mixed stands. We tested these in a Sitka spruce forest in southern Scotland, employing the Ecological Site Classification to match suitability of 24 species to six climatic and...

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

Hydraulic conductance of stem and petioles increased in response to an increase in xylem sap ion concentration, and decreased in response to a decrease in the ion concentration in six temperate deciduous tree species. The ion sensitivity of hydraulic conductance of stem and petioles was higher than ...

Abstract

Forest production can be limited by nutrient and water availability, and tree species are expected to respond differently to fertilization and irrigation. Despite these common expectations, multi-species comparisons are rare, especially ones implementing a range of fertilization rates crossed with...
