Abstract

The impacts of partial cut systems on nutrient availability and understory vegetation are poorly understood. To examine these responses, white spruce dominated stands in the boreal mixedwood of Alberta were clear-cut or partial-cut and the forest floor treated by slash burning, mixing, mounding, or scalping in a split-plot design. Soil nutrient availability (ion exchange resin), net N mineralization (in situ incubations), and vegetation (density and cover) responses were assessed. With the exception of higher Mg availability in the clearcuts, differences in nutrient availability were driven by forest floor disturbance and not harvest method. Relative to controls, burning increased availability of NH4+, NO3-, and P, and scalping increased Ca and Mg but diminished K. Controls had low levels of NO3-. The mixing treatment substantially reduced net N mineralization. In terms of vegetation, partial cuts reduced root suckering by Populus spp. (Populus tremuloides Michx., Populus balsamifera L.) relative to clearcuts. Burning and mounding stimulated fireweed (Epilobium angustifolium L.) cover, while scalping increased Populus spp. sucker density. In contrast, mixing largely reduced vegetation establishment, likely because of the destruction of roots and rhizomes and reduced N supply. Nutrient availability and vegetation establishment were more strongly controlled by forest floor disturbance than by partial canopy retention.
