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 246 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 )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 168 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
The forests of Canada by Ken Farr( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a visual celebration of forests in Canada. It describes Canada's forests in broad but comprehensive terms, with chapters devoted to each of the eight general forest types and an additional chapter on urban forests
Canada's forest biodiversity : a decade of progress in sustainable management by D. J Neave( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report profiles Canada's success in conserving forest biodiversity. It begins with an examination of Canada's natural forest ecosystems to highlight specific issues relating to conservation & sustainable use of forest biodiversity (ecosystem, species, & genetic diversity). It then assesses progress in meeting commitments under the Canadian Biodiversity Strategy under the following goals: conserve biodiversity & use biological resources in a sustainable manner; improve understanding of ecosystems & increase resource management capability; promote understanding of the need to conserve biodiversity & use biological resources in a sustainable manner; maintain or develop incentives & legislation that support biodiversity conservation & sustainable use of biological resources; and work with other countries to conserve biodiversity

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

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 114 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

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( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 83 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
