Researchers have established field experiments in 5 plant communities to simulate climate change scenarios (i) no change; (ii) warmer, longer seasons with earlier snow melt; (iii) warmer growing seasons with later snow melt. The temperatures are increased in small open-topped greenhouses and the date of snow melt is changed by adding or removing snow. Tagged plants of the major vascular plant spec...

Forestry researchers tend to study in detail their local forests yet for major issues such as global warming, it is necessary to conduct research over larger areas to understand impacts on Canadian forests and industry. This study attempts to better describe rates of decomposition and nutrient mineralization across Canadian forests in order to understand how forests are supplied with nutrients fo...

To study the rates of bone decay using samples of animal bones that are found on the surface> To examine the principal causes of bone decay (e.g. freezing and thawing, mosses and lichesn). To make a study of the ages of bones taken from different locations....
