Abstract

Understanding the impact of plant litters on soil nitrogen (N) dynamics could facilitate development of management strategies that promote plantation ecosystem function. Our objective was to evaluate the effects of different litter types on N mineralization and availability, microbial biomass, and...

Abstract

In Great Lakes aspen forests, clearcutting and whole-tree skidding (WTS) has been the usual practice. Soil disturbances from WTS sometimes lead to regeneration declines in areas of high equipment traffic. Advances in harvesting mechanization have resulted in increased utilization of cut-to-length...

Abstract

Intensive management causes significant changes to the habitat structure of forest stands and threatens forest specialist insect species. To assess and counteract the effect of periodic intensive forestry interventions, such as clear-cutting and reforestation, it is important to adequately quantify ...

Abstract

Short rotation coppices have aroused wide concerns as a means to produce renewable energy materials, as their products, such as biomass particle fuel, bio-ethanol, can substitute decreasing fossil fuel. The paper introduced the research progress at home and abroad in poplar short rotation coppices...

Abstract

Schizoempodium mesophyllincola is an eriophyid mite that feeds in leaves of Populus trichocarpa in the central part of this cottonwood tree's range (i.e., coastal British Columbia, Washington and Oregon) in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) of North America, and on some interspecific hybrids planted in...

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

In large areas of the boreal mixedwoods of eastern Canada, conventional forestry practices dominated by large-scale clearcutting have led to an increase in early-successional trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) stands and a decrease in late-successional mixedwood stands. Partial harvesting ...

Abstract

One approach to biodiversity conservation is to set aside small woodland key habitats (WKHs) in intensively managed landscapes. The aim is to support species, such as epiphytes, which often depend on old trees and are negatively affected by intensive forestry. However, it is not known whether the...

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...
