A prototype portable biomass pyrolysis unit and its potential to produce value-added chemicals and fuel by Thomas L Noland( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world's petroleum reserves won't last forever, and their use for fuel increases greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. Renewable biomass is a promising alternative to petroleum-based products as a source for bioenergy and other bioproducts (e.g., value-added chemicals, food additives) but comprises only a minor portion of the world market. This document describes a prototype portable fast pyrolysis unit made in Ontario as an example of an emerging biomass conversion technology. It also summarizes the possible value-added chemical and biofuel uses of bio-oil. Challenges to commercializing this emerging technology are discussed.--Document

The Thin Green Line : a symposium on the state-of-the-art in reforestation : proceedings by Thin Green Line Symposium( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forest regeneration is a cornerstone of managing forests sustainably. Prompt and efficient regeneration gives society the benefits of wood products, as well as the economic wealth that obtaining and processing wood creates. Good reforestation habits provide more wood from less land and increased timber productivity means that demand for wood products can be met with less impact on non-wood uses of the forest. This symposium which was attended by nearly 200 professionals included participants from Canada, the United States, Europe, and Asia had as its focus the issue of forest regeneration which is a cornerstone of managing forests sustainably. Papers presented cover a range of topics related to reforestation within the broader categories of: the status of reforestation and afforestation around the world; nursery methodologies to produce target seedlings; planting and planting site treatments to optimize regeneration; and enhancing timber production and non-timber values through stand establishment.--Document

A team of scientists was charged with the task of designing and implementing studies to determine the impacts of full-tree harvesting on the long-term site productivity of black spruce and jack pine ecosystems. This report details the protocols required to study the complexities of nutrient cycling, nutrient loss after disturbance, and post-disturbance recovery of the harvested black spruce sites, including experimental design, site selection, harvesting treatments, and sampling procedures
Effect of initial seedling morphology and planting practices on field performance of Jack pine 6 years after planting by John Paterson( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A planting trial was established in 1986 on a clearcut, disc-trenched, well-drained, sandy loam jack pine site near Gogama, Ontario to determine the effect of initial morphology and planting practices on field performance of jack pine bareroot and container stock. Survival and height after six growing seasons are reported for treatments related to initial seedling size and shoot:root ratio, leader dominance, root pruning, microsite selection, and seedling placement
Long-term ecological research program strategic plan by William G Cole( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Long-Term Ecological Research Program (LTER) was created in spring 1991 as part of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative to provide science-based knowledge in support of policy development on long-term forest ecosystem health. This strategic plan is the culmination of a three-year effort by a group of scientists and resource management professionals from Ontario and the United States. This document synthesizes the information presented in background reports on long-term ecological research in Canada and the U.S., a site evaluation analysis and report, and a perspectives and recommendations report. The LTER Strategic Plan describes the rationale and historical development of the program and presents the goal and implementation plan

Revised site regions of Ontario : concepts, methodology and utility by D. (Dys) Burger( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the effective management of forest land resources, it is essential to know not only the geographic distribution of these resources, but to appreciate the dynamic relationships among tree species, soil, and climate. Site-regions, as developed for Ontario, provide such an interpretation by focusing on changes in species-site relationships along macroclimatic gradients. This report summarizes, updates, clarifies, and formulates more precisely the underlying concepts of site region; outlines research methods; presents revisions of regional characterizations and of the map of site regions in Ontario; compares these regions with other regional classifications; and outlines the utility of site regions in management and ecological studies

The function of seed banks in northern forest ecosystems : a literature review by Steven C Hills( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phenomenon of seeds remaining dormant within the soil is well known and documented but detailed information on the role of such seed banks in northern Ontario is very limited. Research is required to determine the species and abundance of seeds in the soil across a range of forest types, as well as to determine the function of the seed bank in post-disturbance vegetation dynamics. This report presents comparison tables of seed density and diversity for the boreal and deciduous forest types, and discusses the research that has been conducted. The review included detailed discussions of seed bank dynamics, physiology of seeds in a seed bank, boreal and deciduous forest seed banks, seed bank dynamics and succession, and recommendations for initiating a seed bank study in northern Ontario

Bioindicators of forest health and sustainability : review report and project implementation strategies by W. H Fogal( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary objective of the project reported in this document is to review and evaluate the use of remote sensing applications to assess forest health and sustainability. After an introduction discussing the concept of forest health and relationships between stress, strain, and damage, section 2 reviews the factors most likely to cause plant stress, the manner in which the stresses are manifested, and methods for detecting or determining those factors (both environmental and man-made). Section 3 focuses on the manifestations or markers of stress, related factors, and other indicators of health and vigour. This leads to a review of the role of remote sensing technology for supplying such information in section 4, which describes such tools as cameras, imaging spectrometers, satellite-borne sensors, and geographic information technologies. Section 5 reviews applications where remote sensing could contribute to forest health studies, and identifies the most promising technologies. A design framework for forest health monitoring is then outlined, and some general implementation strategies are suggested. Specific project stages and pilot studies are also proposed which are intended to develop essential methodologies or test new approaches to forest health remote sensing. Finally, financial implications of various project options are assessed. The appendix includes discussion of temporal and spatial considerations for monitoring forest health and sustainability
