Potash production in northern sweden: History and ecological effects of a pre-industrial forest exploitation. Environment and History, 4(3), Afternoon: Mining, Toxics, and Forests B Humanistuset Guest lecture and discussion: Ulf Segerström, SLU. Ecological conditions change over time in response to both internal and external drivers. Accurate understanding of the current status of species, populations, ecological communities, and ecosystems is important for meaningful and comprehensive analysis of extant ecological patterns, processes, and functions. Of equal or greater importance is knowledge of longer term trends in .
In scientific ecology climax community, or climatic climax community, is a historic term for a boreal forest community of plants, animals, and fungi which, through the process of ecological succession in the development of vegetation in an area over time, have reached a steady equilibrium was thought to occur because the climax community is composed of species best adapted to.

The military use of herbicides in Vietnam began in , was expanded during and , and reached a peak from to Herbicides were used extensively in Vietnam by the U.S. Air Force's Operation Ranch Hand to defoliate inland hardwood forests, coastal mangrove forests, and, to a lesser extent, cultivated land, by aerial spraying from C aircraft and helicopters. F(rederick) Herbert Bormann, American ecologist (born Ma , New York, N.Y.—died June 7, , North Branford, Conn.), led a research team that in the early s discovered the presence and harmful effects of acid rain in North America.

FIRE ECOLOGY OR ADAPTATIONS: Norway spruce is not well adapted to survive fire. Fire in mature stands of Norway spruce is usually of high intensity and destroys all standing trees .Fire severity usually depends on a number of factors, primarily soil moisture .In taiga forests over permafrost, low-severity fires leaving standing live trees may eventually result in complete stand.

Effects of Ecological Continuity on Species Richness and Composition in Forests and Woodlands: A Review Swedish Red Data Book of Vertebrates Research Highlights: We show the difference in the long-term effects on economic and ecological forest values between four forest management scenarios of a large representative forest landscape.
The scenarios were largely formulated by stakeholders representing the main views on how to manage north-European forests. Background and Objectives: Views on how to balance forest management between Author: Jeannette Eggers, Minna Räty, Karin Öhman, Tord Snäll. Summary.
The capture of fire by the genus Homo changed forever the natural history of the Earth. The manipulation of fire, a species monopoly, defined humanity’s ecological niche. Even today fire appears at the core of many popular scenarios for environmental by: Gundersen, P.

There are bound to be differences in colonization rates between two old-growth islands separated by an area of mature second-growth forest, and two such islands separated by a clearcut, or a.
This review synthesizes the fire effects information and relevant ecology of white spruce in North America that was available in the scientific literature as of Details and documentation of source materials follow this summary. Introductory: The Introductory section discusses the taxonomy of white spruce, including hybrids and synonyms.
Fires are adverse events with tangible costs for property and human life. Quantification of the immediate and direct costs of fire provide a metric for understanding the social and economic impact of fire and for assessing progress in fire prevention and protection.
In addition to their physical costs, fires have a range of less immediate and obvious adverse consequences on the natural Cited by: 5. (1) Literature review. We searched the literature for studies on disturbance by fire, wind and bark beetles, and their impacts on ecosystem services as defined by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MEA, ), as well as their effects on biodiversity, focusing on species richness and habitat quality as well as on indices of diversity (e.g.
Shannon‐Index, Simpson‐Index, etc.).Cited by: The important role of disturbances in shaping landscapes and influencing ecosystems is now well recognized in ecology.
Fires, storms, floods, pest outbreaks, species invasions, and resource extraction, to name but a few types of disturbance, affect many ecosystems over Cited by: The most important restoration measures in Swedish boreal forests for promoting biodiversity are to increase the number and quality of undisturbed forests, the amounts of coarse woody debris, the number of deciduous trees, and to introduce fire as an ecological by: 92nd Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America, San Jose, CA, August Lenihan, J.

AGU Fall Meeting, San Francisco, CA, Dec Sheri L. Gutsell, Edward A. Johnson, in Plant Disturbance Ecology, CONCLUSIONS. The study of fire behavior has been largely developed by physical scientists, particularly engineers and physicists. Unfortunately, much of the literature on the physical aspects of fire behavior is underutilized by foresters and ecologists, who have seemed more interested in describing the ecological.
