Drivers of understory species richness in reconstructed boreal ecosystems: a structural equation modeling analysis

The relationships between understory species richness and biotic and abiotic factors in sites reclaimed after oil sands mining in northern Alberta, Canada, three and six growing seasons post-reclamation are explored.

Plant community development following reclamation of oil sands mine sites in the boreal forest: a review

Understanding how reclamation practices influence plant community assembly and succession is an important step in developing realistic indicators and targets for reclamation of oil sands mine sites

Osmotic priming of seeds of crop species with polyethylene glycol as a means of enhancing early and synchronous germination at cool temperatures

Polyethylene glycol (PEG) solutions can be used to promote early and synchronous germination of seeds at cool temperatures. The determination of optimum priming levels is an essential prelude to
