The species' abundance has declined over the past 50 years, primarily because of an invasive pathogen (Ophiognomonia clavigignenti-juglandacearum [Oc-j]) and loss of suitable habitat for regeneration. Although genetic diversity of butternut is highest along the southern range edge, genetic diversity rangewide is...

Harvest operations and soil sustainability: A review

Soil productivity is essential to the sustained production of forest ecosystem goods and services. Timber harvests may lead to negative ecological impacts to the soil environment, thus reducing both soil and forest long-term productivity. Impacts caused by timber harvests are site-specific, and soil monitoring at various times post-harvest is critical to understanding both short- and long-term dam...
