The forest vegetation generally consists of black spruce (Picea mariana (Miller) BSP) with minor inclusions of tamarack (Larix laricina (Duroi) K.
The tamarack (Larix laricina) grows on the wettest soils, and the preferred habitat of the balsam fir (Abies balsamea) is on the banks of lakes and rivers.
With a greenhouse experiment we investigated these relationships by examining responses of growth, growth-related morphology, survival, and their interrelationships to a range of nitrogen (3.4 X [l0.sup.-9]-3.4 X [l0.sup.-3] mol/L N fertilizer solutions) and low light (0.6-7.3% of open sky) availabilities for young seedlings of 10 North American tree species that vary in observational shade tolerance rankings and seed size (Populus tremuloides, Betula papyrifera, Betula alleghaniensis, Acer saccharum, Larix laricina, Pin us banksiana, Pinus resinosa, Pinus strobus, Picea mariana, and Abies balsamea).
