Disturbance impacts on non-native plant colonization in black spruce forests of interior Alaska
While boreal forest habitats have historically been relatively free from invasive plants, there have been recent increases in the diversity and range of invasive plants in Alaska. It is critical that we understand how ...
Tree Ring Responses to Climate: Drought Stress Signals Decreased Resilience of Northern Boreal Forests
Unprecedented rates of climate change have increased forest stress and mortality worldwide. Previous research in the boreal forest has largely documented negative growth responses to climate in forest species and habitats ...
Effects of leaf litter and environment on bryophytes in boreal forests of Alaska
Bryophytes dominate the forest floor, regulate soil microclimate, and participate in the carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) cycles in coniferous boreal forests, while deciduous stands support a lower bryophyte abundance. Recent ...
ABUNDANCE OF FORAGE LICHENS FOR BOREAL CARIBOU IN THE BOREAL SHIELD ECOZONE OF SASKATCHEWAN
Several species of terricolous fruticose lichens are important as winter forage for a threatened species, boreal caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou (Gmelin)), in the northern boreal forest of Saskatchewan, Canada. This ...
Landscape-level responses of boreal forest bird communities to anthropogenic and natural disturbance
In an attempt to manage values other than timber production, forestry companies have sought a new paradigm to manage forest resources. Based on the hypothesis that wildlife in the boreal forest has adapted to habitat ...
