Parks Canada monitors vegetation composition in Kluane National Park and Reserve forests to determine resilience following a spruce bark beetle outbreak of unprecedented severity that occurred in the mid 1990’s. Understanding stand development after this landscape-level disturbance will be critical to assessing its effect on wildlife habitat and the impacts of beetle salvage logging outside of the park. Sampling is done every 5 years in 50 randomly located permanent sample plots in white spruce dominated mature forests. Three sub-measures are assessed: 1) Relative dominance of deciduous basal area, 2) percent cover of berry-bearing shrubs, and 3) ratio of willow clumps to tall spruce regeneration.

Most songbirds in Kluane National Park and Reserve are medium-distance migrants and could be threatened by habitat degradation along migration routes. Songbirds could also indicate whether Kluane’s forests have recovered essential components of habitat after the extensive spruce bark beetle outbreak in the late 1990s. Point counts for songbirds are conducted twice annually in June in a white spruce dominated forest according to the Alaska Landbird Monitoring Strategy protocol. Birds are identified to species and enumerated by sight and sound

Forest ecosystems are a vital component of Nahanni National Park Reserve, covering approximately 80% of the park. Forest vegetation condition is currently a composite of three sub-measures: changes in (1) mature spruce stand growth rates, (2) mature spruce stand mortality rates, and (3) understory vascular species composition. The measure focuses on river valley white and black spruce-dominated stands. Data collection is conducted at permanent plots by field technicians once every ten years.

To slow the spread of the Brown spruce longhorn beetle to new areas, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) uses measures to control the movement of potentially infested materials. Slowing the spread of the Brown spruce longhorn beetle will protect Canada's environment and forest resources. It also helps keep international markets open to the forest industry and nurseries in non-regulated parts of Ontario and Quebec and in the rest of Canada.

This dataset is associated with the article authored by Jacques Régnière, Lisa Venier and Dan Welsh entitled "Avian predation in a declining outbreak population of the spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)" which will be published in the "Insects" scientific journal. The impact of avian predation on a declining population of the spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumifereana (Clem. ), was measured using single-tree exclosure cages in a mature stand of balsam fir, Abies balsamea (L.), and white spruce, Picea glauca (Moench.) Voss.

What? Forest Health plots in the Boreal and Acadian land regions are being monitored in Cape Breton Highlands National Park to determine if any historical changes are occurring. When? Monitoring frequency for this program occurs on a five year cycle within the Acadian and Boreal Forest regions; sampling typically occurs in July or August.

Ontario's Crown forest is divided into geographic planning areas, known as forest management units. Most of these units are managed by individual forest companies under a Sustainable Forest License. A forest management unit is identified by an assigned official name (e.g., Black Spruce Forest) and a unique numeric code. Before any forestry activities can take place in a management unit, there must be an approved forest management plan in place for each management unit.

In PEI National Park tree health and growth are monitored in 20 long-term permanent forest monitoring plots. These plots were established in 2006 in mature white spruce forests under the Ecological Monitoring and Assessment Network (EMAN) program. The measure reports on tree species dominance, recruitment, and growth. Field measurements include species, diameter at breast height (DBH), and tree condition.
