Back from the brink: Framework to sustain resilience to species at risk

Science Spotlights Posted on: August 14, 2019
The Regeneration for Resilience (R4R) framework provides a decision structure to prioritize limited resources and utilize seedling planting and natural regeneration management to offer the best likelihood of success in positioning stands and landscapes to support resilience self-sustaining tree populations that are threatened by invasive pests. Effective management of forest regeneration dynamics can increase forest resilience and adaptive capacity to mitigate impacts of invasive species.

Factors affecting ectomycorrhizae and forest regeneration following disturbance in the Pacific Northwest

Documents and Media Posted on: October 10, 2018
Studies from the Pacific Northwest indicate that disturbance can reduce ectomycorrhizal formation and forest regeneration. However, the degrees of reduction and impact on forest regeneration vary widely and depend on many factors. Among these are the type and severity of disturbance, ectomycorrhizal diversity, climatic conditions, biotic conditions, and the effects of non hosts over time.Document Type: Other Documents

Coram Experimental Forest

Experimental Forests and Ranges Posted on: September 08, 2015
Coram Experimental Forest lies within the Flathead National Forest in the Northern Rocky Mountains of Montana. Spanning 7,500 acres (3,020 hectares), Coram Experimental Forest was established in 1933 for researchers to study western larch regeneration and management. Today, the research conducted and the extensive datasets collected at Coram continue to be critical for western larch management.

The Fraser Experimental Forest, Colorado

This report provides a general overview of work done on the Fraser Experimental Forest. It replaces Station Paper No.8, published in 1952 and revised by L. D. Love in 1960. Included are descriptions of physical features and resource values, and highlights of past and current research programs.

The Fraser Experimental Forest, Colorado: Research program and published research 1937-1985

Publications Posted on: April 26, 2011
This report provides an overview of the research done on the Fraser Experimental Forest. It replaces GTR's no. 40 and 40A by Robert R. Alexander and Ross K. Watkins in 1977. Included are descriptions of physical features and resources, highlights of past and current research, and the publications derived from that research.

Light transmittance estimates in a longleaf pine woodland

Publications Posted on: March 23, 2010
While the importance of canopy structure in open woodlands and savannas on regulating the flow of energy and matter is well known, few studies have investigated how variation in overstory abundance influences canopy light transmission and the extent that estimates vary in their ability to characterize the light environment in these ecosystems.
