Response of the post-fire bryophyte community to salvage logging in boreal mixedwood forests of northeastern Alberta, Canada



Response of the post-fire bryophyte community to salvage logging in boreal mixedwood forests of northeastern Alberta, Canada



Forest Ecology and Management 234(1/3): 313-322



Salvage logging is common practice in the boreal forest of northeastern Alberta, Canada. Fire-killed aspen snags are harvested as soon as it is feasible after fire, and in the case of the House River fire (which burned over 250 000 ha in May and June 2002), planning and harvesting began before the fire was extinguished and continued until summer 2003. The ecological consequences of salvage logging are poorly understood, and unknown for bryophytes.
