Plain Language Summary

This project continues work that was initiated at the request of Imperial Oil to develop methods to improve aspen establishment at their Cold Lake operation area, which has experienced difficulties with aspen regeneration on reclaimed sites. This project utilizes root associated fungi that were collected from aspen seedlings at the Imperial Oil lease location in 2015 to determine if they can facilitate improved aspen establishment. This project aims to increase the probability of successful reclamation by improving aspen establishment. This project will help accelerate caribou habitat recovery by reducing landscape fragmentation, providing new tools to improve the rate and predictability of forest recovery, and restoring the functioning of the ecosystem following resource exploration and development.
