Mountain pine beetle population dynamics in new habitats and climates: The potential for eastern and northern spread in Canada
Warmer weather is driving MPB range expansion, but how well will the beetle take hold in novel habitats?
Comparison of understory burning and mechanical site preparation to regenerate lodgepole pine stands killed by MPB
While detection and control efforts are key to mitigating MPB, it's also important to improve how land managers respond after an attack.
Impacts of mountain pine beetle on hydrology and vegetative redevelopment in lodgepole pine forests of west-central Alberta: Phase II - Ecological responses in the grey attack stage
This project will examine hydrological and vegetation responses in the grey attack stage.
Protecting understory white spruce during removal of overstory aspen will ensure the utilization and release of advanced spruce growth, which will result in a shortened rotation, reduction of reforestation cost, and eventually an increase of timber production per unit of land.
Named in honor of the "father of forest hydrology in Western Canada," this project seeks to capture the value of long-term research and data sets.
The groundwater/ surface water interactions in the headwater streams and the relative importance in controlling the hydrological response to disturbance
This project is part of the Southern Rockies Watershed Project.
Combining Field and LiDAR Modeling Tools to Move Beyond Indicator Based Approaches for Surface Erosion: Simonette as a Test Area for the Foothills Natural Region
This project on riparian mapping aims to improve management and operational efficiency by capitalizing on the high quality remote sensing data available in Alberta.
