About the Edition

Factors which influence the Birch Transition community in the Sudbury mining area, Ontario, were identified by comparing a most depauperate field site (Ridge) and a least depauperate field site (Woodland). The analysis of the sites by the Vigour Index and Index of Degradation, study of soils and foliar material, soil plant water relationships, and germination and seedling establishment were discussed.

Subculture Birmingham theory is best described as an amalgam. Its examination of the splintering of traditional working class culture draws on established traditions including Marxism, Gramscian hegemony and Chicago School studies of urban micro-sociology grounded in US behavioural social science (Cohen ; Merton ; Whyte ). The factors governing the urchin barrens in the Scottish kelp beds are unknown. It is possible that barrens result when urchins take advantage of kelp plants having been removed as the result of a combination of other biological and abiotic factors - such as the stipes having been weakened due to tissue removal by Helcion pellucidum and the.

Factors influencing the birch transition community of the industrial barrens, Sudbury, Ontario by Gaynor I. James Download PDF EPUB FB2

The anthropogenic birch transition community has developed in the vicinity of Sudbury, Ont., as a result of base-metal mining and smelting, logging, and forest fires over the past century. The combination of environmental stresses to which the Sudbury region has been subjected has led to a series of distinct zones of vegetation surrounding the smelters.

Birch is a common species around the disturbed area surrounding Sudbury smelters (Amiro and Courtin, ), and recruitment of these seedlings is often limited by drought and metal stress.

Decomposition of birch leaves in heavily polluted industrial barrens: relative importance of leaf quality and site of exposure Article in Environmental Science and Pollution Research 22( Sudbury is located in the Great Lakes St-Lawrence forest region, a rich transition zone composed of southern deciduous tree species and boreal conifers.

Studies found that atmospheric deposition accounted for 57% of the mercury input to that lake, suggesting a significant anthropogenic influence (Mierle, ).

Introduction. Industrial emissions present a serious threat to natural ecosystems and human health both at global and regional levels. Sub-Arctic regions previously considered to be one of the largest pristine ecosystems in the world are nowadays subjected to increasing pressure from mining and smelting activities in Northern regions of both Eurasia and the by: 1.

Due to such adaptibility, this group can be seen as a model for the successful transition on land. The text deals with two main subjects: the effects of stressful conditions on the individual animal as reflected by its survival or by the disruption of its normal reproductive pattern; and the distribution of the isopods and their selection of.

The aim of the current overview is to compare the efficiency of remediation practices of technogenic barrens, to evaluate opportunities to enhance the landscape restoration practices and reduce environmental impacts of nickel-copper mining and smelting in two northern industrial regions: Sudbury, Ontario, Canada and Kola Peninsula, Russia.
