Abstract

Much has been learned of the ecology, management, and utilization of aspen and several comprehensive reviews are available. The development of forest ecosystem classifications as a framework for intensive management has occurred mainly in the past 10 years and such site classifications are now available for British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario in areas where aspen is important. The relevance of several such ecological site classifications to aspen management in Canada is discussed.
