High resolution interpolation of climate scenarios for the conterminous USA and Alaska derived from general circulation model simulations( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Projections of future climate were selected for four well-established general circulation models (GCM) forced by each of three greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions scenarios, namely A2, A1B, and B1 from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on Emissions Scenarios (SRES). Monthly data for the period 1961-2100 were downloaded mainly from the web portal of Third Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (Phase 3) of the Program for Climate Model Diagnosis and Intercomparison (PCMDI) and subsets of data covering North America were extracted. Climate variables included monthly mean daily maximum and minimum temperatures, precipitation, incident surface solar radiation, wind speed, and specific humidity. All variables were expressed as changes relative to the simulated monthly means for 1961-1990, which corrected for GCM bias in reproducing past climate and allowed future projected trends to be compared directly. The downscaling procedure used the ANUSPLIN software package to fit a two-dimensional spline function to each month's change data for each climate variable at a spatial resolution of 5 arcminutes (0.0833º) longitude and latitude. The A2 emission scenario invariably generated the greatest warming by 2100 and the B1 the least. Alaska is projected to undergo the greatest regional increases in temperature and precipitation. Differences across the projections were generally greater from the different GHG forcings than those resulting from the different GCMs, although the consistency varied spatially. Gridded datasets are publicly available. The downscaled change factors from this study are being used with historical climatology developed from the PRISM climate data set to develop the climate projections for the RPA scenarios in the USDA FS RPA assessment. A companion report and data set will be issued by Natural Resources Canada (Canadian Forest Service) for Canada

Indicator plant species in Canadian forests by Gordon S Ringius( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Plant species that convey information about the ecological nature of a site are known as indicator species. A wide variety of site conditions including soil nutrient and moisture regimes, forest humus types, soil reaction, and general soil type can be determined from the presence of plant species." "This field guide is an introduction to the concept of plants as indicators of environmental conditions within Canada's forests. It provides information on the identification, ecology, geographic range, and indicator value of 80 selected vascular plants, mosses, and lichens. Indicator Plant Species in Canadian Forests will be of interest to resource planners, foresters, ecologists, botanists, naturalists, and anyone who wishes to know more about forest plants and what they tell us about the sites they occupy."--Jacket

A blueprint for forest carbon science in Canada : 2012-2020 by Pierre Bernier( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Domestic and international concerns about climate change have led to questions about the contemporary and future role of Canada's forests and forest sector in affecting atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases (GHGs). In 2008, the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers described climate change, including adaptation and the role of forest carbon (C) in helping mitigate climate change, as one of two priorities of national importance facing the Canadian forest sector over the next decade

Achieving sustainable forest management through partnership : Canada's Model Forest Program by Canadian Forest Service( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A model forest is a place where the best sustainable forest management practices are developed, tested and shared across the country. This document describes Canada's Model Forest Program and highlights some of the challenges model forest partners have met, including decades-old land-use disputes, conflicts between human activity and wildlife protection, concerns about the effects of road construction on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and helping forest-dependent communities benefit from the economic wealth of the forest in a responsible manner
Forest health in Canada : an overview, 1998 by Forest HEalth Network( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first synoptic overview of the health of Canada's major forest ecosystems. It provides an informative synthesis of current forest health conditions and concerns in a concise, non-technical format, arranged by ecozone. For most of these zones, three subheadings are used to focus discussion: changing forest landscape conditions, which describes effects from land use activity including forest management; changing biodiversity, which describes effects on natural biodiversity as a consequence of human-induced stressors; and changing atmospheric environment, which outlines effects from air pollution and describes known impacts on forests. The final section discusses the North American and global context of forest health as well as future directions for forestry programs
Insects of eastern larch, cedar, and juniper by A. H Rose( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook is designed to enable people interested in trees to identify insects causing damage to them. All insect species or groups that have caused damage to larch, cedar, & juniper in Canada east of the Rocky Mountains are included. The insect and/or its damage can be identified by means of flow chart keys using non-technical language along with 150 coloured illustrations. Biological sketches of the insect are presented, and control measures, along with the timing of application, are prescribed. Common names of insects are used generally, but the scientific names are also given in the text. Includes index
Tracking climate change effects : potential indicators for Canada's forests and forest sector by Sylvie Gauthier( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The overarching goal of this report is to provide potential indicators and selection criteria to develop a tracking system for Canada's forests and forest sector. The specific objectives are (1) to present a suite of potential indicators of climate change effects on Canada's forests and forest sector and (2) to provide criteria to select and prioritize indicators to track climate change effects. Indicators of the effective-ness of adaptation actions are not covered in the report as it is a nascent field of investigation. The report is elaborated with a forest sector audience in mind including decision makers in forest industries; federal, provincial, and territorial departments and agencies; conservation agencies; nongovernmental organizations; research scientists; and the public."--Document
