Composition, structure, and species-specific patterns of recruitment and growth were characterized in two yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis Britt.)–conifer stands in Quebec, Canada, to improve our understanding of the dynamics of these complex ecosystems. The mixture of mid- and shade-tolerant species in the canopy, the inverse J-shape stem diameter(More)
After release, balsam fir has greater ability than red spruce to rapidly capture available light and growing space in a wide range of canopy opening. A large proportion of yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis Britt.)—conifer stands feature abundant advance growth of shade-tolerant balsam fir (Abies balsamea [L.] Mill.) and red spruce (Picea rubens Sarg.), on(More)
BACKGROUND In recent years, endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) have been found in rivers that receive significant inputs of wastewater. Among EDCs, natural and synthetic steroid hormones are recognized for their potential to mimic or interfere with normal hormonal functions (development, growth and reproduction), even at ultratrace levels (ng L(-1)).(More)
