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

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

A midrotation commercial thinning experiment conducted in two independent spruce plantations compared several tree selection strategies as both early (age 19 or 24 years) single and double (again at age 30 or 34 years) entries over a 16 year period. A delayed (age 30 or 32 years) single-entry...

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

Both nutrient concentrations and pre- and post-harvest pool sizes were determined across down woody debris decay classes of several hardwood and softwood species in a long-term, natural disturbance based, silvicultural experiment in central Maine. Concentrations of N, P, Ca, Mg, Cu, Fe, and Zn...

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

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...

Abstract

Remnant tree stands left intact following a disturbance constitute the sole seed banks available for regeneration of coniferous species that neither bear serotinous cones nor reproduce vegetatively. The success of regeneration of tree species on these disturbed sites is, therefore, dependent on the ...

Abstract

Discusses 10-year results of thinning in 1947 in a 28-year-old stand of Populus tremuloides, P. balsamifera, Abies balsamea and Picea glauca, thinned (a) from below to leave 300, or (b) 200, crop trees per acre, and (c) from above, removing 10-12 cords/acre, or (d) clear felling. Mortality on all...

Abstract

A study was made on the Dunbar Forest Experiment Station, Mich., of Alder growing on poorly drained soils. Five 1-acre sample plots were established in 1933; on 3 plots the Alder was clearfelled, on 1 plot 50% of the Alder clumps were girdled, and one plot was left as a control. Species left...
