Carbon allocation and nitrogen acquisition in a developing Populus deltoides plantation.
We established Populus deltoides Bartr. stands differing in nitrogen (N) availability and tested if: (1) N-induced carbon (C) allocation could be explained by developmental allocation controls; andExpand

Fine root dynamics in a developing Populus deltoides plantation.
A closely spaced (1 x 1 m) cottonwood (Populus deltoides Bartr.) plantation was established to evaluate the effects of nutrient availability on fine root dynamics. Slow-release fertilizer (17:6:12Expand

Ground-layer plant community responses to even-age and uneven-age silvicultural treatments in Wisconsin northern hardwood forests
We evaluated ground-layer plant diversity and community composition in northern hardwood forests among uncut controls and stands managed with even-age or uneven-age silvicultural systems. Even-ageExpand

Challenges facing gap-based silviculture and possible solutions for mesic northern forests in North America
Gap-based silvicultural systems were developed under the assumption that richness, and diversity of tree species and other biota positively respond to variation in size of harvest-created canopyExpand

Do deer and shrubs override canopy gap size effects on growth and survival of yellow birch, northern red oak, eastern white pine, and eastern hemlock seedlings?
Innovative forestry practices that use natural disturbance and stand developmental processes as models to increase forest complexity are now being considered as a way to conserve biodiversity whileExpand

Harvest-created canopy gaps increase species and functional trait diversity of the forest ground-layer community
Biodiversity conservation within managed forests depends, in part, on management practices that restore or maintain plant community diversity and function. Because many plant communities are adaptedExpand

Long-Term Research at the USDA Forest Service's Experimental Forests and Ranges
Abstract The network of experimental forests and ranges administered by the US Department of Agriculture Forest Service consists of 77 properties that are representative of most forest cover typesExpand

Legacy effects of prescribed fire season and frequency on soil properties in a Pinus resinosa forest in northern Minnesota
Abstract Prescribed fire is a widely used ecosystem management approach and the vast majority of burns are conducted during the dormant season; however, these burning conditions (and therefore theExpand

Effects of variable retention harvesting on natural tree regeneration in Pinus resinosa (red pine) forests
Concerns over loss of ecosystem function and biodiversity in managed forests have led to the development of silvicultural approaches that meet ecological goals as well as sustain timber production.Expand

Asynchrony among local communities stabilises ecosystem function of metacommunities
Abstract Temporal stability of ecosystem functioning increases the predictability and reliability of ecosystem services, and understanding the drivers of stability across spatial scales is importantExpand
