This dataset is associated with the article by Marine Pacé, Nicole J. Fenton, David Paré and Yves Bergeron entitled "Differential effects of feather and Sphagnum spp. mosses on black spruce germination and growth". It includes data of black spruce germination (greenhouse), seedling growth (0 to 6 months, greenhouse) and sapling growth (2-3 years, greenhouse and field, 49°44’N, 79°17’W). Seeds, seedlings and saplings were subjected to different treatments: 3 types of ground cover (bare soil, feather mosses, Sphagnum spp.

This dataset is associated with the article authored by Marine Pacé, Benjamin Gadet, Julien Beguin, Yves Bergeron et David Paré entitled " Drivers of boreal tree growth and stand opening in boreal forest: the case of jack pine on sandy soils ". It comprises 37 plots including 20 plots near the locality of La Sarre (48° 48’ N; 79° 12’ W) and 17 plots near the locality of Chibougamau (49° 53’ N; 74° 20’ W). It includes data on forest stands (DBH, height, age), permanent environmental conditions (surface deposits, slope, granulometry and chemical characteristics of the C horizon), and non permanent environmental characteristics (disturbance history, understory vegetation, depth of the organic layer, soil water content chemical characteristics of the eluted and accumulation horizons). It also contains data on tree growth (dendrochronological stem analysis) and isotopic composition of the cellulose (13C).

All available bathymetry and related information for Jack Fish Lake were collected and hard copy maps digitized where necessary. The data were validated against more recent data (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission 'SRTM' imagery and Indian Remote Sensing 'IRS' imagery) and corrected where necessary. The published data set contains the lake bathymetry formatted as an Arc ascii grid. Bathymetric contours and the boundary polygon are available as shapefiles.

Lichen abundance was selected as a measure of stress in forest ecosystems because lichens are well-established bioindicators and have been used for monitoring air pollution globally for many years. They are particularly sensitive to changes in their environment. Lichen species vary in their sensitivity to pollutants, and as a result by monitoring the assemblage and abundance of different species, we can obtain a measure of the prevailing air quality. This monitoring work is performed in Kejimkujik once every 5 years using field observations from trained Lichenologists.

This database contains the data set described in Andrieux B. et al. (in preparation) about carbon stocks in Quebec's spruce feathermoss forests. Carbon density in different reservoirs of the ecosystem is available at the plot scale (n = 72): living aboveground biomass, coarse woody debris, organic soil horizon, mineral soil (top 15 cm), mineral soil (15-35 cm) and illuvial (B) horizon (top 15 cm). Ancillary biophysical data includes geographic locations, topographic surveys, composition of the moss mat, time since fire, and soil properties (carbon content, bulk density, forest floor depth, pH, texture and amorphous metals).

Every year, since 1967, the Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks (MFFP) has conducted an aerial survey of the damage caused by the main insects and diseases that attack trees. This fact sheet deals exclusively with data on jack pine budworm damage. The data is updated annually only in the event that damage is observed. The aerial survey is carried out in sectors previously determined according to the damage of the previous year and the results of the inventories predicting the populations of this insect.**This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

This database contains the data set described in Andrieux B. et al. (in preparation) about soil organic carbon bioreactivity in Quebec's spruce feathermoss forests. The soil carbon bioreactivity has been evaluated with long-term lab incubations. Carbon density in different soil functional reservoirs is available at the plot scale (n = 72): total C stock in the O layer (FH horizon), total C stock in the mineral soil (0 to 35 cm), total bioreactive C stock, total acid-insoluble C stock.

Whitebark pine blister rust (Cronartium ribicola) is an introduced pathogen affecting whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) and limber pine (Pinus flexilis). Whitebark pine is an endangered species protected under the Federal Species at Risk Act (SARA) and Limber pine is designated as an endangered species by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC). Infection and mortality rates of these species are increasing across their northern range. Every five years, data are collected from permanently marked plots to monitor infection levels across the mountain national parks.
