Effects of drainage on substrate temperature and phenology of some trees and shrubs in an Alberta peatland

Effects of drainage on substrate temperature and phenology of some trees and shrubs in an Alberta peatland

Canadian Journal of Forest Research 17(2): 97-104

Seasonal depth to water table and substrate and air temp. were monitored in a 50-ha area drained in 1984 and in an adjacent undrained area. The phenology of 45 black spruce, 45 tamarack and 25 dwarf birch (Betula pumila) trees was recorded twice a week in 1985 and 1986. The av. seasonal depth to water table in drained and undrained sites was 41.6 and 13.7 cm in 1984 and 55.2 and 20.2 cm in 1985, respectively.
