Black spruce growth response to varying levels of biomass harvest intensity across a range of soil types: 15-year results.
With a growing interest in the diversification (e.g., bioenergy, biochemicals) of the forest industry beyond the traditional product streams, concerns that higher harvest utilization levels mayExpand

Patterns of canopy interception and throughfall along a topographic sequence for black spruce dominated forest ecosystems in northwestern Ontario
A 3-year (1993–1995) study was conducted to describe both the spatial (within- and between-site) and temporal (monthly) patterns associated with canopy interception, throughfall, and net forest wat...

The effects of initial spacing on growth and crown development for planted northern conifers: 37-year results
A spacing trial was established near Thunder Bay, Ontario in 1950. This trial consisted of black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.), white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss.), and red pine (PinusExpand

EVALUATION OF MORPHOLOGICAL ATTRIBUTES AS RESPONSE VARIABLES TO PERENNIAL COMPETITION FOR 4-YEAR-OLD BLACK SPRUCE AND JACK PINE SEEDLINGS
The sensitivity of seedling morphological attributes to changing competition levels was evaluated on 4-year-old black spruce (Piceamariana (Mill.) B.S.P.) and jack pine (Pinusbanksiana Lamb.)Expand

Carbon stocks in managed conifer forests in Northern Ontario, Canada.
Carbon pools and net primary productivity (aboveground) were measured in managed stands of jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) and black spruce (Picea mariana [Mill.] B.S.P.), ranging in age from 10 toExpand
