Wang, P. D'Odorico, in Encyclopedia of Ecology (Second Edition), Boreal Forests. Boreal forests are among the best studied ecosystems in terms of litter decomposition and mineralization. In these forests – and in forest ecosystems in general – litterfall is the largest source of soil organic material, in that it can account for more than 50% of Net Primary.

Boreal Forest Dynamics and Biodiversity Research Group (BoForDyn) carries out fundamental research on the structure, dynamics and biodiversity of boreal forest ecosystems. We conduct research that increases our understanding of boreal forest ecology and the use of this knowledge in developing methods of restoration and sustainable ecosystem.

Boreal Forest is the largest Natural Region is ,km 2 in size within Alberta, which comprises almost 58 percent of its land base. Commencing north of the Foothills and Parkland Natural Region, the Boreal Forest of Alberta expands from the City of Edmonton to the most northern reaches of the province, and outlines most of the western and eastern provincial borders.

The Satakunta forest diversity experiments website presents our research conducted on biodiversity-ecosystem functioning relationships in boreal forests in Finland. We aim to understand the effects of tree species and intraspecific.

In many protected forests, however, remaining biodiversity values are legacies of past disturbances, e.g. recurring fires, grazing or small-scale felling. These forests may need active management to keep the characteristics that were the reason for setting them.

The boreal forest seems to like the higher levels of carbon dioxide that result from fossil-fuel burning. All that carbon appears to be enabling Author: David Biello.

Researches of forest vegetation, forest soil, and features of the historical land use in the boreal region showed that most of the boreal forests have developed as a result of repeated forest fires and cuttings during the last millennium.

Forests are part of the human landscape, and the biodiversity found in today's forests has been profoundly influenced by people.

The most common deciduous trees found in the boreal forest include white birch, trembling aspen and balsam poplar.

Biodiversity in Boreal Forests. The erosion of old-growth forests in boreal managed landscapes is a major issue currently faced by forest managers; however, resolving this problem requires accurate surveys.

The intention of our study was to determine if historic operational aerial forest surveys accurately identified boreal old-growth forests in Quebec, Canada.boreal forest The boreal forest (from Boreas, Greek God of the north wind) is one of the world's largest biomes, covering almost miles across the northern hemisphere.
