Abstract

Abstract In the North American boreal forest, the presence of aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) is thought to be constrained on sites where thick (>25 cm) soil organic layers (SOL) prevail. Aspen can reproduce both by seeds and suckers, but it is still unknown how {SOL} thickness influences both modes of reproduction. In this study, we sought to determine how {SOL} thickness and chemistry in black spruce dominated stands influences aspen regeneration and growth. Aspen abundance was negatively related to {SOL} thickness and logistic regression indicated that the probability to detect an aspen declined from 30% at SOL = 0 cm to 10% at 30 cm. Our results also indicated that aspen diameter at breast height was significantly negatively correlated with {SOL} thickness and black spruce abundance, and positively correlated with soil Ntot, Ca, {CEC} and pH. Finally, we failed to detect any significant effect of {SOL} on aspen mode of regeneration (i.e. seeds or suckers). Our study shows that through changes in physical and chemical soil properties, {SOL} accumulation equally hinders both aspen seedling germination and growth, and sucker development.
