Abstract

Boreal mixedwood forests of aspen (Populus tremuloides) and white spruce (Picea glauca) are found on mesic sites in the western boreal forest of Canada. In the natural development of mixed forests, aspen is usually the first species to dominate the site. However, depending upon spruce seed sources...

Abstract

The short-term response of wildlife to clear-felling was studied in 4 blocks (52-114 km2) in boreal forests that were logged, while protecting the regeneration, in 100-250 ha clustered patches. The most common tree species were Picea mariana, Pinus banksiana, Abies balsamea, Betula papyrifera and ...
