The short-term impact of competition control on the growth of juvenile trees and how tree responses to competition control differed across the productivity gradient was of particular interest, as was Cited by:

Abstract. Context: To increase the wood supply to its industry, the government of Québec has allocated dead and sound wood (recently dead merchantable stems, DSW) to the wood supply chain in addition to the annual allowable cut of living trees. However, DSW is often criticized by sawmillers for its perceived poor quality and lower value.

Abstract. Root biomass, net primary production and turnover were studied in aspen, jack pine and black spruce forests in two contrasting climates. The climate of the Southern Study Area (SSA) near Prince Albert, Saskatchewan is warmer and drier in the summer and milder in the winter than the Northern Study Area (NSA) near Thompson, Manitoba Cited by: Provincial-based individual tree volume tables for Douglas-fir, white birch, tamarack, Engelmann spruce and jack pine (Ecologically based individual for major Alberta tree species report) [Huang, Shongming] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

In addition, Coomes and Allen () proposed that, under size‐asymmetric competition, small trees should have growth rates lower than those of tall trees until complete growth suppression in small trees.

Here, we hypothesize that size‐asymmetric competition is a structuring factor of our biodiversity tree plantation. MethodsCited by: Decomposition, litter fall, and nutrient and organic matter turnover rates were determined in five eastern Ontario jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) stands having various burning histories, including wildfire.
