Grizzly Bear Program
Program

Grizzly Bear Program

The fRI Research Grizzly Bear Program provides knowledge and planning tools to ensure the long-term conservation of grizzly bears in Alberta.

Healthy Landscapes Program
Program

Healthy Landscapes Program

The program, formerly known as the Natural Disturbance Program, looks at landscape change at a huge scale: Canada's boreal forest.

Mountain Pine Beetle Ecology Program
Program

Mountain Pine Beetle Ecology Program

The program carries out focused research on infestations of mountain pine beetle in Alberta.

Water Program
Program

Water Program

In 2011, the Fish and Watersheds Program refocused on hydrology and became the Water Program.

Understanding the impact of culverts on fish communities and optimization tools for mitigation efforts
Project

Understanding the impact of culverts on fish communities and optimization tools for mitigation efforts

This project investigates whether bridges and culverts affect stream connectivity and fish communities.

Effects of Mountain Pine Beetle Attack on hydrology and post-attack vegetation and hydrology recovery in lodgepole pine forests in Alberta
Project

Effects of Mountain Pine Beetle Attack on hydrology and post-attack vegetation and hydrology recovery in lodgepole pine forests in Alberta

This project will describe how mountain pine beetle attack drives changes in hydrology and vegetation.

Comparison of understory burning and mechanical site preparation to regenerate lodgepole pine stands killed by MPB
Project

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.

The interaction of prescribed fire and beetle populations
Project

The interaction of prescribed fire and beetle populations

Can fire be used to slow the spread of mountain pine beetle?

Tria-Net: Dynamics of Endemic MPB Populations in Novel Pine Habitats
Project

Tria-Net: Dynamics of Endemic MPB Populations in Novel Pine Habitats

Will the beetle continue its expansion when it reaches hybrid jack pine forests?

The Forest History Program Interview Series
Project

The Forest History Program Interview Series

Insight into the evolution of forestry in Alberta.

Research to Support Recovery and Long Term Conservation of Grizzly Bears in Alberta
Project

Research to Support Recovery and Long Term Conservation of Grizzly Bears in Alberta

This project develops population recovery targets based on habitat, and non-invasive techniques for monitoring grizzly bear reproductive performance.

Towards Integrated Source Water Management in Alberta
Project

Towards Integrated Source Water Management in Alberta

This project is part of the Southern Rockies Watershed Project aimed at understanding headwater processes and the hydrologic response to fire and forestry.

Understanding the impact of culverts on fish communities and optimization tools for mitigation efforts
Project

Understanding the impact of culverts on fish communities and optimization tools for mitigation efforts

This project investigates whether bridges and culverts affect stream connectivity and fish communities.

Southern Rockies Hydrological Modelling
Project

Southern Rockies Hydrological Modelling

This project focuses on calibrating a hydrological model, called Raven, for forest planning.

Watershed Assessment Procedure to address cumulative effects in the eastern slopes natural region
Project

Watershed Assessment Procedure to address cumulative effects in the eastern slopes natural region

This project will develop a tool for assessing how watersheds in the eastern slopes are affected by disturbance.

Data Management and Innovative Support for Long-term Watershed Research: The Walt Jeffrey Project
Project

Data Management and Innovative Support for Long-term Watershed Research: The Walt Jeffrey Project

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.

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
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.

Landscapes in Motion
Project

Landscapes in Motion

The Landscapes in Motion project is here to discover some of the stories behind the landscapes in the southern Rockies of Alberta.
