Abstract

This annotated bibliography contains 518 citations, mostly of North American and European origin. It focuses on the following eight species of commercial importance in Canada: white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss), black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.), jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.), balsam fir (Abies balsamea (L.) Mill.), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco), lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl.), trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.), and sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh.). The focus of this research was to determine the impact of silviculture on a selected and key group of fiber attributes for fire-origin and second-growth stands.
