The Bowron River watershed : a landscape level assessment of post-beetle change in stream riparian function( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this study is to evaluate the condition of streams and riparian zones in a watershed after a substantial amount of time has passed since logging. The Bowron River watershed was chosen based on past harvesting challenges similar to those associated with the mountain pine beetle outbreak and a post-logging recovery time of 20-30 years. By evaluating a watershed in an advanced stage of recovery, it is possible to identify impacts to the riparian system and use the information to consider whether adverse effects will be manifested as a result of compounding forest activities and hydrological response under present forest management practices. The evaluation also provides insight into which components recover first."--Document
Soil biogeochemical dynamics in hypermaritime ecosystems of north coastal British Columbia( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soil biogeochemistry dynamics of north coast forests were investigated as part of the HyP3 Project. This is an integrated forest research project aimed at developing ecologically-based guidelines for the management of lower-productivity cedar-dominated forests in north coastal British Columbia. The objectives of this study were to: document the biogeochemistry of the blanket bog-upland forest complex; predict how disturbances from forest harvesting change biogeochemical dynamics; and assess the potential impacts of these changes on forest succession
Seedling browse guard trial on the north coast of British Columbia( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the coast of British Columbia, western redcedar is a very valuable tree species and often the focus of harvesting activities. Redcedar also has very high cultural significance among the First Nations of coastal B.C. Regenerating a new crop of redcedar after harvest has presented many challenges over the years but improvements in seed collection and storage methods and new nursery cultural regimes have resulted in a reliable supply of good quality seedlings being available for planting. Once a redcedar seedling is planted in the field, it faces a host of biotic and abiotic challenges to successful growth. One of the major factors affecting survival and growth on many coastal sites is browsing by black-tailed deer. For reasons that are not fully understood, deer find freshly planted redcedar seedlings particularly palatable and they often browse the seedlings beyond the point of recovery. Planting is a time-consuming and expensive operation and browsing can be a serious impediment to the establishment of a viable second growth redcedar crop. One of the most common methods of dealing with this issue is the use of seedling protectors/shelters or browse guards. The guards come in many different styles, sizes, and configurations from a variety of manufacturers. As part of an ongoing operational research trial, we examined five different types of seedling browse guards to determine their effectiveness in establishing a redcedar plantation on the north coast of British Columbia
Sulphur fertilizer trial in the west-central interior of British Columbia by John Marty Kranabetter( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nitrogen fertilizer trials with immature lodgepole pine have demonstrated that actual or induced sulphur deficiencies are common in the central interior of British Columbia. Sulphur is a necessary element in tree nutrition, but, in addition, sulphur deficiencies might limit key processes in soils, such as nitrogen mineralization, decomposition and nitrogen-fixation. Most fertilizer trials have examined the effects of nitrogen additions with or without sulphur on site productivity. Few field studies have addressed the possible role of sulphur alone in ameliorating nutrient cycling in sulphur-deficient forest soils. The objective of this experiment was to test whether sulphur fertilization alone would improve available sulphur (as sulphate) and potential nitrogen availability (as mineralizable nitrogen) in forest soils of west-central British Columbia, and to determine the effect of sulphur additions alone on tree growth and nutrition. Sulphur fertilizer was added (75 kg S/ha as gypsum) onto three broadcast burn lodgepole pine plantations (6 years old) and differences in tree growth, foliar nutrition and soil chemistry to unfertilized controls after 5 years are reported here
