Establishment of long-term soil productivity studies on acidic soils in the interior Douglas-fir zone by G. D Hope( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The LTSP (Long-term Soil Productivity) project is the world's largest co-ordinated effort to understand how soil disturbance affects longterm forest productivity. Three LTSP sites were established in the dry Douglas-fir forests on acidic soils near Kamloops, in the Southern Interior of British Columbia. These forests were of particular interest because, compared to other forests in the region, they have more sensitive soils, less organic matter reserves, more partial cutting, and more harvesting when soils are most susceptible to compaction. This note summarizes the establishment of the project in the IDF near Kamloops, and offers short-term information on soil and microclimate changes after treatment, vegetation response, and early seedling survival and growth. Continued monitoring of the study over the long term will allow any changes in these short-term effects to be followed through the length of a rotation
Retention strategies to maintain habitat structure and wildlife diversity during the salvage harvesting of mountain pine beetle attack areas in the Southern Interior Forest Region by Walt Edward Klenner( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document was prepared for information purposes and consideration in the development of within-stand retention practices in salvage blocks following attack by mountain pine beetle (MPB, Dendroctonus ponderosae). It outlines some stand-level practices that will help protect and maintain habitat structure and wildlife diversity during large-scale salvage harvesting. Planning for within-stand retention during salvage harvesting will help create conditions that resemble, to a reasonable extent, the spatial, temporal, and structural characteristics of natural disturbances. Some key habitat issues that may need to be considered when planning for retention within the salvage block include retaining mature forest attributes such as large live trees and snags, connectivity and isolation effects, riparian reserves and management zones, prompt access management, and maintaining heterogeneity. The approaches and suggestions outlined in this report have two objectives: to help maintain habitat for a wide range of biota, and to hasten the process of structural succession by providing suitably dispersed mature and late seral forest legacies within a developing early or immature seral stand. Background information from current published literature on the role of structural retention in managed forests is summarized. Some applications of these principles to conceptual examples are provided, since each operational field application will face specific opportunities and challenges. Suggested stand-level strategies will be most effective if co-ordinated with complementary landscapelevel retention, and applied in the context of a full range of resource values
Site classification for 52 biogeoclimatic units in the Southern Interior Forest Region -- Draft by Dennis Lloyd( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The British Columbia Biogeoclimatic Ecosystem Classification (BEC) incorporates climate, soil, geology, geography, & plants into a single system with several hierarchical levels for use in such areas as range management, forest health assessment, wildlife management, forest management, and research. This bulletin describes the history of BEC development and the current & anticipated production of materials for use in a BEC field guide. It also lists the draft table of contents of the guide, which includes a hierarchical list of biogeoclimatic site classifications
