  • Balsam fir density - Terra Nova

    This measure includes monitoring of browsing impacts of non-native mammals on populations of the balsam fir populations at 30 randomly selected plots. This measure records percent of browsing on particular firs, and collects multiple metrics, including species diversity, seral stage, etc.

  • Browse Pressure - Terra Nova

    Terra Nova National Park monitors non-native mammal browse pressure on forest plant communities on transects and plots.

  • Forest Decay Rate - Terra Nova

    Terra Nova National Park monitors annual decay rate by measuring decomposition of tongue depressors buried within randomly selected Balsam Fir and Black Spruce plots.

  • Forest Landscape Regeneration - Terra Nova

    The park assesses expected ranges for each land cover type: successional stages by stand type, area regenerating after natural disturbance (e.g., fire), mature forest, non-forest, wetlands, and waterbodies.

  • Plant Health Index - Terra Nova

    This measure aims at monitoring forest plant community structure in Terra Nova National Park, including taxa richness, and presence of exotic species.

  • Pond Angling Stress - Terra Nova

    The park monitors angling stress in several ponds (lakes) in Terra Nova with Fyke nets. Angling stress is assesed against calculated values of fish biomass and fish condition (Fulton’s condition factor, K).

  • Stream Hydrology - Terra Nova

    Terra Nova National Park uses fixed station stream gauges and pressure temperature loggers to monitor the following stream flow aspects: Richards-Baker index of flashiness, ratio of yearly precipitation to runoff, low flow volume, annual maxima/minima, and mean monthly flow.

  • Stream Invertebrate Taxa Richness - Terra Nova

    Terra Nova National Park employs a kicknet sampling procedure to monitor the species richness and relative species abundance of stream invertebrates. Streams chosen for sampling are randomly selected within second order watersheds.

  • Stream Thermal Regimes - Terra Nova

    Terra Nova National Park employs fixed station pressure/temperature loggers to continuously monitor stream water temperatures over the entire summer at designated stream study sites.

  • Water Quality for Aquatic Health - Terra Nova

    The park monitors water quality of streams and ponds (lakes) on a triennial cycle, reporting on total organic carbon, acidity, phosphorus, nitrogen, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and Chlorophyll A. These metrics are compiled into a water quality index (WQI) that summarizes overall water quality.
