The importance of ecological constraints on the control of multi-species treeline dynamics in eastern Nunavik, Quebec.
TLDR
It is highlighted that allelopathy and unsuitable seedbeds could contribute to regeneration failure of P. mariana in eastern Nunavik and emphasizes the need to consider ecological preferences of species before predicting treeline expansion under a warmer climate. Expand
Population isolation shapes plant genetics, phenotype and germination in naturally patchy ecosystems
TLDR
It is concluded that geographic isolation likely restricts gene flow, which in turn may affect germination, and it is imperative that conservation programs take into account the patchy nature of naturally patchy ecosystems, rather than targeting a few specific sites with exceptional character for preservation.

Cool as a moose: How can browsing counteract climate warming effects across boreal forest ecosystems?
TLDR
This study investigates how moose modify climatic responses of boreal trees by using experimental exclosures on two continents and modeling complex causal pathways including several climatic factors, multiple tree species, competition, tree height, time, food availability, and herbivore presence, density, and browsing intensity.

Ex situ germination as a method for seed viability assessment in a peatland orchid, Platanthera blephariglottis.
TLDR
This study showed promising results for the use of ex situ germination as an alternative to previously developed protocols for seed viability assessment of orchids in ecological studies. Expand
Moose Browsing Tends Spruce Plantations More Efficiently Than a Single Mechanical Release
Forest vegetation management can improve planted seedling survival and growth and is thus widely used in plantation silviculture. In some jurisdictions, mechanical release using brushsaws hasExpand
