Structure, Carbon Dynamics, and Silvichronology of Boreal Forests
Principal Investigator: Osawa, Akira
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: Objectives of the field work are two-fold: one is to collect data in jack pine and in lesser extent black spruce forests on annual movement of organic matter and carbon; the other is to continue the study of stand development and its relationship to environmental factors (a discipline called ‘silvichronology’). For the former objective, the research team will continue measurement of the growth of ...


Establishment of Permanent Monitoring Plots in South Slave Region
Principal Investigator: Smith, Lisa
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: A network of permanent monitoring plots (PMPs) is required for assessing forest growth and yield in the NWT. These PMPs will be used to: 1) obtain information to assess the rate of forest growth and determine current and potential yield of various fores...


Establishment of Permanent Monitoring Plots in Deh Cho
Principal Investigator: Smith, Lisa
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: A network of permanent monitoring plots (PMPs) is required for assessing forest growth and yield in the NWT. These PMPs will be used to: 1) obtain information to assess the rate of forest growth and determine current and potential yield of various fores...


Establishment of Permanent Monitoring Plots in Sahtu
Principal Investigator: Smith, Lisa
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: There are three primary objectives of the study; 1) growth and yield information to assess the rate of forest growth and determine current and potential yield of various forest types; 2) NWT cumulative impact monitoring for the Western NWT Biophysical St...


Analysis of Natural Thinning Processes in Mixed Species Forests.
Principal Investigator: Osawa, Akira
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: The main objective of the proposed research is to collect extensive data of tree size and stand density from mixed forests of Jack pine and quaking aspen in Wood Buffalo National Park and to examine theoretically the patterns of quantitative forest development with special reference to the phenomenon of 'natural thinning' in even-aged forests. The research team consisting of forest ecologists will...


Reconstruction of Forest Structure and function in Canadian Taiga
Principal Investigator: Osawa, Akira
Licenced Year(s): 1998 1997
Summary: The research team will consist of forest ecologists. We plan to study a few jack pine stands by taking stem samples for examination of forest growth that occurred in the past. A possible effect of climate change on the growth of forests are being examined. Several trees were cut and were analyzed last year. This summer several additional stems will be sampled. When a tree is cut, we try not to dis...


Licence #2074
Principal Investigator: Suzuki, T..
Licenced Year(s): 1977
Summary: To measure a number of sample forest plots in detail to assemble a body of data with which to test a computer simulation model of the growth and development of tree stands....
