Regenerating the Canadian Forest: Principles and Practice for Ontario
By Robert G. Wagner & Stephen J. Colombo
The sustainability of forest ecosystems is a major concern in forest management and research in Canada and around the globe. At the core of sustainable forestry is the ability to successfully regenerate forests that have been harvested or disturbed in other ways.
Forest regeneration practices are vital to shaping the composition and quality of forests, determining the levels of sustainable harvest, managing and protecting wildlife habitat and aquatic ecosystems, and restoring severely disturbed ecosystems.
This book provides the only comprehensive synthesis of the principles and practice for regenerating the forests of eastern Canada and the northeastern United States. It is intended as a practical guide for forest managers, forestry students, wildlife biologists, and others who need a reference that identifies reforestation problems and provides feasible solutions.
