A review of the regeneration dynamics of North American boreal forest tree species
In this review, we focus on the biotic parameters that are crucial to an understanding of the recruitment dynamics of North American boreal tree species following natural (fire, budworm infestation,Expand

A Model of Wind Dispersal of Winged or Plumed Seeds
We derived a micrometeorological model for the dispersal of winged or plumed seeds from a point source. The model is based on six measurable parameters: mean release height, mean and standardExpand

Modelling recruitment of Populus tremuloides, Pinus banksiana, and Picea mariana following fire in the mixedwood boreal forest
We examined the relationship between the post-fire regeneration density of Populus tremuloides Michx., Pinus banksiana Lamb., and Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP and their pre-fire basal area density atExpand

An evaluation of alternative dispersal functions for trees
Summary 1 We compared three commonly used empirical seed/seedling dispersal functions for trees (lognormal, 2Dt, and two-parameter Weibull) by analysis of published studies where the locationExpand

The reduction of organic-layer depth by wildfire in the North American boreal forest and its effect on tree recruitment by seed
We compared prefire and postfire organic-layer depths in boreal forest types (14 fires) across Canada, and examined tree recruitment as a function of depth. There was extensive within-stand variationExpand

The relationship between ice thickness and northern hardwood tree damage during ice storms
The response of four tree species, Acer saccharum Marsh., Acer rubrum L., Populus tremuloides Michx., and Betula populifolia Marsh., to ice storm damage was studied in the northern hardwood forest ofExpand

Wind Dispersal of Seeds from a Forest Into a Clearing
Although there are many studies of wind dispersal of seeds from a forest into an adjacent clearing, no physical model has yet been advanced. The model constructed here calculates the trajectories ofExpand

Post-wildfire seedbeds and tree establishment in the southern mixedwood boreal forest
We studied the post-wildfire establishment of jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.), black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP), and white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) in the southern mixedwoodExpand

Modelling silvicultural alternatives for conifer regeneration in boreal mixedwood stands (aspen/white spruce/balsam fir)
We model and compare the biological and financial constraints of four prescriptions that serve as alternatives to conventional clearcutting followed by planting in eastern and western borealExpand

Tree recruitment from burn edges
We developed and tested a wind-dispersal model of tree recruitment into burns from living sources at the fire edge or from small unburned residual stands. The model was also tested on recruitment ofExpand
