Healthy Landscapes Program

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

In 2012, the fRI Research Natural Disturbance Program changed its name to the Healthy Landscapes Program to reflect an expanded program vision.

The program carries out research, develops models, and does communication and education to support ecosystem-based management.
