The changes in floristic composition and structure that occur after clearcutting and site preparation in four ecosystems in the Sub-Boreal Spruce Zone are outlined. Responses of species to burning and mechanical site preparation are examined and the strategies for recolonization and survival used by different species are investigated. Implications of these findings to ecological classification and management to meet silvicultural and wildlife objectives are addressed.
