Structure, Carbon Dynamics, and Silvichronology of Boreal Forests
Principal Investigator: Osawa, Akira
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2016 2015 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: Main objective of the field work is to collect data in jack pine and black spruce forests on annual movement of organic matter and carbon. Additional objective is to conduct a regional study of stand development and its relationship to environmental factors in a several-square-kilometer study area of mostly black spruce. Five methods will be used. 1) Soil and air temperature will be measured...

Carbon Dynamics in Chronosequence of Boreal Forest Ecosystems: a Production Ecological Approach
Principal Investigator: Osawa, Akira
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: Northern forests are closely connected to the issue of global warming because they are likely to absorb much of the carbon dioxide that is emitted into the air by humans. The amount that these forests absorb, however, is not clear. The research team will...

Physical properties of dead and downed round-wood in the boreal forests of Western Canada
Principal Investigator: Wein, Ross
Licensed Year(s): 2002
Summary: Accurate estimates of the bulk density or specific gravity, tilt angle and average diameter of various size classes must be established. This study focuses on collection and validation of these estimates, recognizing that they may indeed change, dependin...

Distribution of Dark-Celled Fungal Root Endophytes Along an Arctic to Boreal Latitudinal Gradient
Principal Investigator: Piercey, Melissa
Licensed Year(s): 2000
Summary: Roots of plants inhabiting cold-stressed environments are often colonized by vegetatively reproducing fungi. The researcher will examine the genetic variation within and among populations of Phialocephala fortinii P. along a latitudinal gradient encompassing the boreal, subarctic and arctic zones in Northern Canada. The researcher will travel from Yellowknife to 3 study sites surrounding Great ...

A Fire History, Fuel and Ecological Assessments of the Fort Smith, NWT area
Principal Investigator: Brungs Simard, Hanita
Licensed Year(s): 1996
Summary: The study area will be sampled on a 2x2 km grid as the vegetation type of the area in question is predominantly jack pine. At each 2 km interval 3 procedures are done: 1) plant identification and % cover of each species in approx. 100 m. sq., 2) tally of the fuels (logs, twigs, branches) that fall along a triangular transect, 3) discs are removed from one large unscarred tree and one scarred tree...
