The influence of birch on belowground ecosystems in Douglas-fir stands of different ages
|Author(s): Durall, Daniel (Okanagan University College)||Subject: Integrated resource management, Pathology, Silviculture/Forest Management Systems||Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Forest Science Program|
Belowground ecosystems have been poorly studied in world forests. It is necessary to understand this complex portion of the ecosystem, which directly receives up to 50 % of a tree's fixed carbon. The proposed study will focus on the belowground ecosystem of Douglas-fir forests and how it is affected by paper birch over an 80 year period using a chronosequence approach.
