The Potential of Carbon Nanoparticles as a Stimulant to Improve the Propagation of Native Boreal Forest Species: A Mini-Review

Boreal forests across Canada and other geographic areas globally have vast networks or densities of seismic lines, pipelines, access roads, utility corridors, and multipurpose trails collectively

Principal component analysis of summertime ground site measurements in the Athabasca oil sands with a focus on analytically unresolved intermediate-volatility organic compounds

Abstract. In this paper, measurements of air pollutants made at a ground site near Fort McKay in the Athabasca oil sands region as part of a multi-platform campaign in the summer of 2013 are

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

Application of forward osmosis membrane technology for oil sands process-affected water desalination.

TLDR
The FO system developed in this project provides a novel and energy efficient strategy to remediate the tailings waters generated by oil sands bitumen extraction and processing.

Early Successional Plant Community Dynamics on a Reclaimed Oil Sands Mine in Comparison with Natural Boreal Forest Communities

ABSTRACT Forming the majority of plant diversity in boreal forests, understory communities are important drivers of nutrient cycling and overstory succession. In western Canadian boreal forests, fire

Field emergence of native boreal forest species on reclaimed sites in northeastern Alberta

TLDR
Direct sowing is an underutilized technique for establishing native species on reclaimed land in the mineable oil sands region of northeastern Alberta and 9 species established and were reproducing by seeds, tillers, or rhizomes are evaluated.
