Establishment of PSP network to monitor stand dynamics and establish yield curves for stands killed by MPB

As a result of significant in-flights of mountain pine beetles coming from British Columbia in 2006 and 2009, as well as subsequent local production, there are widely distributed pine dominated stands throughout Alberta that have been significantly affected by MPB-caused mortality. Mortality is most prevalent from West-Central Alberta, in the Grande Prairie are and northwest of Manning.

Linkages between forestry practices, ungulate abundance, and the habitat use and performance of grizzly bear in and adjacent to woodland caribou habitat

This project will improve our understanding of how forestry practice is affecting ungulates and how grizzly bears are responding.

Can forestry and silviculture practices help increase caribou functional habitat in west-central Alberta?

This project will evaluate and mitigate industrial impacts on west-central Alberta Caribou herds.

The Columbia Trail

Pete Murphy and Tom Peterson through their work on the Whirlpool River Project, have been re-discovering the historic overland route of the fur trade up the Whirlpool River—the Columbia Trail.  In the course of doing so, they have also been re-tracing the route through the rest of Jasper National Park. Karen Byers of the Jasper Yellowhead Museum helped with this project.

Potential Impacts of Mountain Pine Beetle and Management Actions on Grizzly Bear and Caribou Populations in West-Central Alberta

This project will determine how MPB-killed stands are impacting caribou and grizzly bear habitat.
