    But forest degradation can represent a significant potential threat to timber production (as reviewed in Kenefic et al., ), biodiversity (Vanderwel et al., ), and carbon stocks (Hoover and Heath, , Pan et al., ) in North American temperate contexts even where silviculture has been practiced for more than a century (Ashton and Cited by: 5.

North American temperate forests fall into six main groups: (1) temperate evergreen rain forests along the West Coast from. Poisonous plants are among the important causes of economic loss to the livestock industry and should be considered when evaluating illness and decreased productivity (see Table: Poisonous Range Plants of Temperate North America a).Poisonous plants can affect animals in many ways, including death, chronic illness and debilitation, decreased weight gain, abortion, birth defects, increased.

DESCRIPTION OF PLANT COMMUNITIES. In the typological summary and descriptions of plant communities, we present the discussion and the syntaxonomical results on North American Boreal and Western Temperate climactical and natural potential coniferous forests, their respective deciduous secondary forests and woodlands, and related riparian forests.

The authors explain the implications of changes at both the plant and stand levels, and they extrapolate the data to ecosystem-level responses, such as changes in nutrient cycling, biodiversity and carbon sequestration. In analyzing data, they also discuss similarities and differences with other temperate deciduous forests.
