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

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

Partial harvesting is thought to result in more structurally diverse forest stands, providing a promising alternative to clearcutting and helping balance timber production and biodiversity conservation. Evidence for this hypothesis is based mostly on understory vegetation communities, with little...

Abstract

The principal objective of the study aimed at establishing formal relationships between stand growth dominance and mode of inter-tree competition for stands dominated by different tree species. We selected permanent sample plots (PSP) that were established in eastern Canada and which were dominated ...

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

Vegetation management is crucial to meeting the objectives of forest plantations. Following public hearing processes, chemical herbicides were banned on Crown forest lands in Québec (Canada) in 2001. Release now mainly relies on mechanical treatments. Our objectives are to review the historical...

Abstract

Although partial harvesting has been proposed as a measure for maintaining compositional and structural characteristics of natural old-growth stands, it has not been rigorously evaluated. The first objective of this study was to compare forest composition and structural characteristics after...

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...

Abstract

Forest managers in Ontario (Canada) need reliable guidelines for promoting desirable species mixtures to enhance economic and ecological diversity. The objective of this project is to advance knowledge of boreal mixedwood (BMW) management by testing techniques for achieving productive mixtures of...

Abstract

Ecosystem biomass and C sequestration and cycling were measured in a mature, budworm-ravaged, second-growth boreal mixedwood stand (typically composed of Picea glauca, P. mariana, Abies balsamea, Populus tremuloides and Betula papyrifera), in Ontario, Canada, subjected to clearcut and partial cut...
