Shrub Burial by Snow Deposition in Immature Coastal Forests
A Review and RecommendationsMicroform - 1987
The implications of snow burial processes are important to the management of ungulate winter range, since forage plants can be buried by snow much less than their height. This report presents a brief review of the location, methods, and results of 4 studies (Harestad and Bunnel (1984), Gauld (1985), Hovey and Rahme (1985/6), and van der Mark) done on the southern coast of British Columbia, which examine displacement and burial dynamics of salal and huckleberry by snow.
