Little is known about establishment success of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal (AMF) inocula and their effects on a soil-indigenous community of AMF. In this study, we assessed the effect of introducing Rhizophagus irregularis DAOM-197198 in soil under field condition on the community composition of indigenous AMF in the roots of corn (Zea mays),...

Plant traits—the morphological, anatomical, physiological, biochemical and phenological characteristics of plants—determine how plants respond to environmental factors, affect other trophic levels, and influence ecosystem properties and their benefits and detriments to people. Plant trait data thus represent the basis for a vast area of research sp...

To address concerns among members of the Canadian Society of Soil Science (CSSS) regarding the discipline’s capacity to train new soil professionals, specifically in pedology and field skills, members of the CSSS’s soil education and pedology committees have proposed to develop a pedology field school. To aid in the selection of learning outcomes t...

Seaweeds have been used as a source of natural fertilizer and biostimulant in agriculture for centuries. However, their effects on soil and crop root microbiota remain unclear. Here, we used a commercially available Ascophyllum nodosum extract (ANE) to test its effect on bacterial and fungal communities of rhizospheric soils and roots of pepper and...

We report data on the physicochemical properties of soils collected in two adjacent areas, one acid and one sub-alkaline, both developed on sequential beds of Plio-pleistocene marine sediments, and on the chemical composition of ecological solutions (rainfall, throughfall and stemflow) separately collected in the two areas. Throughfall and stemflow...
Article
The Athabasca oil sand deposit is one of the largest single oil deposits in the world. Following surface mining, companies are required to restore soil-like profiles that can support the previous land capabilities. The objective of this study was to assess whether the soil prokaryotic alpha diversity (α-diversity) and β-diversity in oil sand soils...
Article
This study determined the changes in TE (As, Cd, Cu, Ni, Pb, Zn) chemistry in the soils of a willow ('Fish Creek' - Salix purpurea, SV1 - S. x dasyclados and SX67 - S. miyabeana) plantation growing under a cold climate during a three-year trial. The soil HNO3-extractable and H2O-soluble TE concentrations and pools significantly decreased under most...
Article
The Athabasca Oil Sands deposit is one of the largest single oil deposits in the world. Following surface mining, companies are required to restore soil-like profiles that can support the previous land capabilities. Re-establishment of nutrient cycles in reconstructed soils is one of the most critical factors in ensuring long-termsustainability of...

Full-text available
Global declines in postsecondary enrollment in soil science programs over the last several decades have been mainly attributed to an overemphasis on the connection with agronomy and production agriculture but recent enrollment increases in the USA suggest change is afoot. To determine if similar trends are occurring in Canada, we inventoried underg...

Tree species exert strong effects on microbial communities in litter and soil and may alter rates of soil processes fundamental to nutrient cycling and carbon fluxes (Prescott and Grayston 2013). However, the influence of tree species on decomposition processes are still contradictory and poorly understood. In this poster, we propose a deeper under...
Article
Tree species can influence rates of soil N transformations, but the question remains whether differences in N cycling rates are mirrored by the abundance of relevant functional genes. We studied whether the influence of tree species on soil N transformation processes and abundance of functional genes exist across two sites in British Columbia with...
Conference Paper
Forest soils represent an important stock of nutrients available to sustain forest productivity. They also contain an amount, still unknown, of trace elements inherited from natural or anthropogical sources. Many of these trace elements can be toxic to living organisms. Thereby, quantification of the concentration and the total content of trace ele...

Abstract of the Book: The Far Northeast, a peninsula incorporating the six New England states, New York east of the Hudson, Quebec south of the St. Lawrence River and Gulf of St. Lawrence, and the Maritime Provinces, provided the setting for a distinct chapter in the peopling of North America. Late Pleistocene Archaeology and Ecology in the Far Nor...

Le parc national de la Gaspésie, situé à l’extrémité septentrionale des Appalaches, au Québec, arbore de nombreuses formes typiques des processus périglaciaires y ayant cours, autant au sommet de ses montagnes (cryoformes de triage) qu’au bas de ses versants (glaciers rocheux). Ces formes périglaciaires suggèrent la possibilité de noyaux de pergéli...

The Gaspésie National Park is located in southern Québec, Canada and is characterized by the presence of the Chic-Choc Mountains. The highest peaks sustain a sub-arctic alpine flora and fauna (e.g. caribou) which is due to the prevalence of periglacial climatic conditions. This site is one of the few places in south-eastern Canada affected by perma...
