Regenerating British Columbia s Forests Excerpt :

Regenerating British Columbia's Forests will assist those responsible for planning reforestation projects to reach informed decisions and will challenge them to consider primarily the biological factors basic to reforestation success rather than short-term costs and production technology. Although its main audience is practising foresters and forestry students of British Columbia, the text will be of considerable interest to foresters in other parts of Canada, the United States, and Europe who manage reforestation.

Finding the Mother Tree Excerpt :

INSTANT NATIONAL BESTSELLER NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER WINNER of the 2021 Banff Mountain Book Prize in Mountain Environment and Natural History WINNER of the National Outdoor Book Award for Natural History Literature A world-leading expert shares her amazing story of discovering the communication that exists between trees, and shares her own story of family and grief. Suzanne Simard is a pioneer on the frontier of plant communication and intelligence; she’s been compared to Rachel Carson, hailed as a scientist who conveys complex, technical ideas in a way that is dazzling and profound. Her work has influenced filmmakers (the Tree of Souls in James Cameron’s Avatar), and her TED talks have been viewed by more than 10 million people worldwide. Now, in her first book, Simard brings us into her world, the intimate world of the trees, in which she brilliantly illuminates the fascinating and vital truths—that trees are not simply the source of timber or pulp but are a complicated, interdependent circle of life; that forests are social, cooperative creatures connected through underground networks by which trees communicate their vitality and vulnerabilities with communal lives not that different from our own. Simard describes up close—in revealing and accessible ways—how trees, living side by side for hundreds of years, have evolved; how they perceive one another, learn and adapt their behaviors, recognize neighbors, and remember the past; how they have agency about their future; how they elicit warnings and mount defenses, compete and cooperate with one another with sophistication: characteristics previously ascribed to human intelligence, traits that are the essence of civil societies. And, at the center of it all, the Mother Trees: the mysterious, powerful forces that connect and sustain the others that surround them.Simard, born and raised in the rain forests of British Columbia, spent her days as a child cataloging the trees from the forest; she came to love

Re establishment of Ectomycorrhizae from Refugia Bordering Regenerating Douglas fir Stands on Vancouver Island Excerpt :

Worldwide, almost all conifer trees rely on mutually beneficial relationships between their feeder roots and certain types of soil fungi. These formations are known as ectomycorrhizae (EM) and play an important role in nutrient-cycling and protecting host trees from drought and disease. Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [Mirb.] Franco), a dominant tree species in coastal British Columbia, is one example of a conifer known to form such symbioses. The objective of this study was to determine the influence of refugia on the rate of recovery of ectomycorrhizae (EM) diversity in clearcut and replanted Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) forests in British Columbia, Canada.--Document.

Natural Regeneration of Small Patch Cuts in a Southern Interior ICH Forest Excerpt :

Almost all harvested sites in the interior cedar hemlock (ICH) zone of British Columbia are currently planted, but natural regeneration can be a viable reforestation alternative in small patch cuts or where a partial canopy is retained. This report describes a project in which five small, variable-sized patch cuts in an ICH forest were studied to determine the effects of opening size, edge characteristics, and substrate quality on the distribution & composition of natural regeneration. Results are presented & discussed regarding regeneration at four years after harvest.

British Columbia s Inland Rainforest Excerpt :

The vast temperate rainforests of coastal British Columbia are world renowned, but much less is known about the other rainforest located 500 kilometres inland along the western slopes of the interior mountains. The unique integration of continentality and humidity in this region favours the development of lush rainforest communities that incorporate both coastal and boreal elements. In British Columbia's Inland Rainforest, scientists bring together, for the first time, a broad spectrum of information about this distinctive ecosystem. They also consider the ecological consequences of human activities in the rainforest and present strategies for its management and conservation.
