Invasive ecosystem engineers can physically and chemically alter the receiving environment, thereby affecting biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. The Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, invasive… (More)
The inherent clinal responses of four quantitative traits thought to be adaptive for trees in cold-limited environments (i.e., height-growth cessation, growth rate, resource allocation to abovegrou...
In southern Wisconsin, U.S.A., tree growth and associated canopy traits were compared among five native and hybrid genotypes of poplar (Populus spp.) in replicated, monoclonal stands planted at a 1 ×… (More)
Climate changes have important consequences for plant communities and their root symbionts. The distribution of tree species within temperate, boreal and tropical biomes will be altered, as… (More)
AbstractPacific oysters, Crassostrea gigas, have been introduced throughout much of the world, become invasive in many locations and can alter native assemblage structure, biodiversity and the… (More)
Climatic and land use changes have significant consequences for the distribution of tree species, both through natural dispersal processes and following management prescriptions. Responses to these… (More)
Abstract The utility of mulching in various forestry applications remains unclear due to mixed results in field trials. Additionally, few studies have attempted to assess the utility of mulching… (More)
Abstract A growing body of evidence suggests that climate change will have complex effects on the boreal forests of western Canada. Studies that examine historical species responses over large… (More)
Biological invasions have the potential to cause severe alterations to the biodiversity of natural ecosystems. At the same time, variation in the diversity and composition of native communities may… (More)
Following a pine beetle epidemic in British Columbia, Canada, we investigated the effect of fire severity on rhizosphere soil chemistry and ectomycorrhizal fungi (ECM) and associated denitrifying and… (More)
