Construction and testing of an inexpensive PAR sensor by Peter Fielder( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Detailed studies of light in forest canopies typically require a large number of light sensors, but the high cost of commercially available sensors can be prohibitive for many research budgets. This report describes the construction & testing of a practical, rugged, and inexpensive sensor for measuring photosynthetically active radiation (PAR). Detailed instructions are provided for assembly and calibration of a sensor made from a gallium arsenide phosphide photodiode held within a protective casing of acrylic and aluminium. Field tests compared the performance of the sensor with that of a standard LI-190 quantum sensor. Results of the tests are presented with regard to sensor stability, linearity, drift, data variability, and spectral response error
The growth of bigleaf maple and planted conifers 14 years after maple clump thinning by George James Harper( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bigleaf maple (Acer macrophyllum Pursh) is a native broadleaf commonly found in the coastal forests of the Pacific Northwest. Following harvesting, vigorous sprouting from cut stumps can create large, rapidly growing clumps of maple sprouts, which can severely reduce the survival and growth of neighbouring conifers. During 1996, ten 0.09-ha plots containing up to 490 bigleaf maple clumps per hectare (cph) were established. A series of maple clump thinning treatments ranging from 0 to 400 cph was assigned to the plots to study the effects of varying maple clump density on understorey light and conifer growth. Select maple clumps were removed by manually cutting all clump sprouts. Post-treatment results over 14 years indicated that the maple clump thinning treatments did not result in any long-lasting differences in conifer survival and growth. In contrast, the clump thinning treatments resulted in a significant decline in cut maple and an increase in uncut maple clump sprout density and volume increment with increased uncut maple cph. Conifer volume increment and total stand volume increment showed no response across the maple cph treatments. Stand periodic annual volume increment of the maple-conifer mixedwood plots ranged from 7.6 to 13.1 m3/ha/yr over 14 years post-thinning."

The growth of bigleaf maple 20+ years after harvesting by George James Harper( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bigleaf maple (Acer macrophyllum Pursh) is a component of Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [Mirb.] Franco) and red alder (Alnus rubra Bong.) stands and occasionally occurs in pure stands in southern portions of the Coastal Western Hemlock biogeoclimatic zone (Meidinger and Pojar 1991) of British Columbia. Its best growth is on the moist and rich soils of river terraces, floodplains, and seepage sites at relatively low elevations (below 300 m) (Haeussler et al. 1990; Minore and Zasada 1990). Bigleaf maple is a valuable commercial tree species (Minore and Zasada 1990) capable of reaching 30 m in height and 120 cm in diameter. The wood is used for higher-value appearance-grade products, such as flooring, furniture, and millwork. Bigleaf maple is also being tapped for syrup production in some parts of the British Columbia coast. After harvesting, the stumps of bigleaf maple sprout vigorously and can produce up to 60 stump sprouts with growth of 2.m or more in height annually (Lauterbach and Warren 1982; Cole and Newton 1990). Bigleaf maple sprout clumps (hereafter called clumps) can reach a crown diameter of 5 m in 2 years, and by 40 years, a maple clump can cover an area as large as 100 m2 (Thomas and Comeau 1998)

Forest vegetation management research strategy for the southern interior, British Columbia : August 1990 by J. P Kimmins( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the southern interior of B.C., the vegetation management research program was organized by broad climatic units and vegetation complexes. This approach is useful for organizing problem-specific and site-specific research. However, a framework is now required to organize the result of these projects into general field applications, and to coordinate future research. This report identifies key research needs in the southern interior and outlines a framework for synthesizing the research results into operationally useful tools. The report was prepared following a review of available documents, field tours in the southern Interior, and discussions with field and research staff. To identify key research needs, a questionnaire was distributed to forest, range, and wildlife managers and forestry researchers working in, or doing work relevant to, the southern Interior. Responses were received from 88 individuals in November and December 1987
Fern complex( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This operational summary provides information about vegetation management in the fern complex. The fern complex occurs in two main forms, one characterized by bracken fern (Pteridium aquilinum) and the other characterized by lady fern (Athyrium filix-femina). The fern complex characterized by bracken is comprised almost entirely of this species alone. Once a bracken fern complex develops, few other species can establish or survive in this association. Complexes characterized by lady fern also include bracken and spiny wood fern. Minor components are fireweed, red raspberry, devil's club, red elderberry, and thimbleberry. Topics covered in this summary include development of the complex and its interaction with crop trees; non-timber values and pre-harvest considerations; and management strategies for current and backlog sites
Simulation of the consequences of red alder management on the growth of Douglas-fir using FORCYTE-11 by P. G Comeau( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Red alder can contribute to site nitrogen capital and to long-term productivity on nitrogen-deficient sites through the process of symbiotic nitrogen fixation. The ecosystem model FORCYTE-11 simulates the effects of nutrient availability and competition for light and nutrients on the growth of trees, shrubs, herbs, and mosses. Consequently, this model can be used to compare the outcome of different strategies for managing red alder in association with Douglas-fir. This report provides a summary of results from a series of simulations completed using FORCYTE-11 with data for red alder and Douglas-fir. The simulations were used to evaluate and demonstrate the potential use of this model for comparing the consequences of different mixedwood management strategies
