Chapter
Despite building a clear and compelling message about the importance of conserving biodiversity and what we risk in depleting it, meaningful engagement from implicated stakeholders remains limited. Past studies have examined the gap between the possession of environmental knowledge and displaying behavior that would help to conserve it. Essentially...
Article
This article presents the pilot study results of a province-wide survey of skills and learning in sustainable community development in Ontario, Canada. The pilot project focuses on the testing of an online survey to examine skills building for creating sustainable communities in Ontario’s small urban municipalities. The survey examined the generic,...

Given the increasing and multiple demands on our forest resources, more than ever, forest ecosystems are vulnerable to the effects of anthropogenic activity; e.g., introductions, extinctions, fragmentation, soil erosion, paludification, pollution, etc. It is imperative that we develop sustainable forest management strategies to ensure that northern...
Chapter
Full-text available
Given the physiographic variability, variation in socio-political landscapes, and differences in connectedness of people and communities associated with boreal forest ecosystems, approaches to forest management that are flexible enough to accommodate this variation are needed. Moreover, to ensure sustainable forest resource use, we need to embrace...
Article
Full-text available
Stand-level diversity after natural disturbance can potentially differ across a large, contiguous forest re-gion despite being dominated by the same canopy species throughout as differences in disturbance types and local site conditions can regulate species distribution. Our main objective was to examine the relative importance of natural disturban...
Article
Full-text available
Forest management that incorporates the emulation of natural disturbances is promoted as a coarse filter approach to maintaining natural ecosystem functions, yet the initial outcomes of different natural and anthropogenic disturbances of similar severity may be quite different. We question whether a variant of diameter-limit partial harvesting effe...
Article
Questions: How does woody vegetation abundance and diversity differ after natural disturbances causing different levels of mortality? Location: Abies balsamea–Betula papyrifera boreal mixed-wood stands of southeast Quebec, Canada. Methods: Woody vegetation abundance and diversity were quantified and compared among three disturbance-caused mortality...
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this paper is to bring to the attention of future researchers the limitations of using the step task and the standard 220-age formula in studies of physical activity and cognitive vulnerability. The present study examined whether physical activity proximally affects negative thinking in individuals with a past depressive history and whet...
Article
Full-text available
Une mortalité soudaine ou graduelle des arbres dominants après une perturbation peut avoir un effet différent pour les assemblages relatifs d'espèces, mais les caractéristiques locales biotiques et abiotiques de l'habitat peuvent modifier les patrons attendus. Les réponses de la végétation ligneuse à des perturbations de sévérité modérée ont été ca...
Article
The impact of deer browsing on the distribution and growth of naturally regenerating red spruce seedlings established within recently harvested and mature, coastal red spruce–balsam fir stands was evaluated. More specifically, we examined browsing frequency and severity in relation to distance from forest cover, stand age, and seedling height. Rela...
