After the terminal bud is set, the seedling biomass can still accumulate substantially and accordingly the nutrient concentration in the seedling declines in the fall. The dilution caused by biomass increase could be relieved by fall fertilization. Abroad, fall fertilization is widely applied for...

Abstract

The objective of this project is to generate information that would guide integrated silvicultural control of mountain pine beetle with wildlife and sustainable forest management objectives. Avian response to eight treatments was evaluated: (1) bark-beetle recovery blocks smaller than 15 ha; (2)...
