Climate change, impacts and adaptation scenarios : climate change and forest and range management in British Columbia by David Leslie Spittlehouse( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Technical Report is one of two foundation papers for the B.C. Ministry of Forest and Range (MoFR) Future Forest Ecosystems Initiative (FFEI). These papers will increase the awareness of the potential impact of climate change on forest and range resources in British Columbia. They will also provide information to aid in assessing the vulnerability of British Columbia's forest and range resources and their management, leading to the development of adaptation strategies for a changing climate. The FFEI was initiated by the Chief Forester with a symposium and workshop in December 2005. At the same time the MoFR Climate Change Task Team was preparing a report on how the MoFR should strategically position itself with respect to the potential impacts of climate change on the province's forest and range resources. The present report draws on the Task Team report, recommendations from the FFEI workshop, and numerous other documents including the most recent reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It provides a summary of future possible climates for British Columbia, a brief review of possible impacts on forest and range resources, and options for and challenges to adapting to climate change. Finally, there are recommendations on how the MoFR might respond to climate change. The report contains four appendices that expand on material presented in the body of the report, including information on the past as well as on future climates of British Columbia.

Cumulative impacts of natural resource development on ecosystems and wildlife : an annotated bibliography for British Columbia by Judi Krzyzanowski( )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Natural resource activities at different spatial and temporal scales have cumulative effects on ecosystems and biodiversity that are not yet thoroughly understood. There is currently little information about the baseline conditions or ecological thresholds of ecosystems and how cumulative impacts affect ecosystem resilience. Nevertheless, projects regulated by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act have been required to zconsidery cumulative environmental effects since 1992 even though established communities of practice to address these impacts are lacking within the realms of research, policy, and natural resource management. This bibliography constitutes an initial step within a longer-term Forrex planning process to properly address extension needs concerning the cumulative impacts of natural resource development on ecosystems and wildlife. It does not represent an exhaustive list of research related to cumulative impacts, but instead draws on selected work from multiple disciplines and sectors to provide a holistic and critical view of impacts relevant to British Columbia's ecosystems. The bibliography is organized by resource sector and includes forestry, rangeland and grazing, agriculture and wineries, mining, oil and gas, water development, fisheries, urban and rural development, transportation and utility corridors, and recreation. This is followed by a section that organizes sources by a wildlife, ecosystem, or general approach to cumulative effects and concludes with a discussion of identified knowledge and research gaps together with recommendations for developing assessment guidelines of cumulative impacts for the province's natural resource sector. This bibliography illustrates the diversity of cumulative effects approaches, the breath of potential impacts, and the complexity of interactions that occur within a shared land base."--Abstract
Monitoring forest and rangeland species and ecological processes to anticipate and respond to climate change in British Columbia( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The British Columbia Ministry of Forests and Range engaged John Innes & Associates to conduct initial research, analysis and liaison work necessary to inform the development of a strategy for monitoring forest and rangeland species and ecosystem processes to anticipate and effectively respond to climate change impacts. The ultimate goal of the monitoring strategy is to provide the data to help inform key forest and range management decisions in light of climate change."--Executive summary

Evaluating soil conservation using high resolution air photos and expert elicitation( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cost-effective monitoring is essential to ensure that soil conservation policies encourage forest practices that protect soil productivity and hydrologic function in British Columbia's forests. An effectiveness monitoring protocol was developed as part of the province's Forest and Range Evaluation Program (FREP) describing a set of indicators of soil conservation, and procedures for evaluating them in the field. The procedure was applied to more than 70 cutblocks over the 5-year period from 2005 to 2009. At the same time, high resolution images were obtained after harvest for the cutblocks, along with more than 60 others, totalling 125 cutblock images from 26 forest districts. The images were initially to be used to aid in the field evaluations, but subsequently became an integral part of an internet-based, collaborative approach to elicit the opinion of experts regarding soil conservation effectiveness. This report summarizes the results obtained from the image-based evaluations for more than 125 cutblocks, and compares the image-based and field-based results for 73 cutblocks. We discuss the implications for soil conservation monitoring in British Columbia, and the potential use of high resolution imagery to improve monitoring efforts and other essential natural resource management functions

Silvics and silviculture of coastal western redcedar : a literature review by K Klinka( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The intent of this report is to present the most current and available information concerning establishment and growth of redcedar in the coastal region of British Columbia. The report represents a synthesis of selected information from several major sources, such as Minore (1983, 1990), Smith, N.J. (1988), Wiggins (1999), and Klinka et al. (2000), and from several recent research studies carried out at the Forest Sciences Department, University of British Columbia. The report is not a comprehensive review because we have focused on the information pertinent to regeneration and growth of redcedar, and have limited the information related to other topics. We have aimed to present the available knowledge in a manner comprehensible to those determined to restore redcedar to the role it deserves in the coastal forests of British Columbia. We hope that those users will find this report a practical and useful tool, facilitating their promotion of redcedar as a key component of our future forests."
An early history of the Research Branch, British Columbia Ministry of Forests and Range by Ralph Schmidt( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on archival material and interviews with previous employees, this document traces the history of research within the B.C. Forest Service from 1912 to 1970. The B.C. Forest Branch was created in February 1912 but research activities didn't begin until 1921 when James (Alex) Alexander studied timber utilization, logging slash disposal, natural regeneration, tree growth and yield, and fire protection. In 1923 Assistant Chief Forester Robert St. Clair recommended the establishment of forest experimental stations in the major forest types of the province, resulting in the Aleza Lake Experiment Station near Prince George (in 1924) and the Cowichan Lake Research Station on Vancouver Island (in 1929). In 1923 Assistant Chief Forester Robert St. Clair recommended the establishment of forest experimental stations in the major forest types of the province, resulting in the Aleza Lake Experiment Station near Prince George (in 1924) and the Cowichan Lake Research Station on Vancouver Island (in 1929). The Research Division was formally established in 1927. By 1930 the Research Division of the B.C. Forest Branch was the largest and most active forest research organization in Canada. In the ensuing decades the research program went through many changes and evolved into a province-wide multi-disciplinary organization

The misunderstood forest by Gene Namkoong( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During his last few years as Department Head for the UBC Forest Sciences Department, Professor Namkoong was working on a book. This is not a book on population or quantitative genetics, which we all would have expected, but the relationship of humans to forests. Although there are many books examining the historical and present day conflicts over forest use, few address the underlying reasons why we have struggled with what forests are and what they mean to us. Gene continued working on the book at his home near Ashville, N.C., up until his untimely passing. (Please see the "Preface" for more background about the completion of the book). We hope you will find "The Misunderstood Forest" interesting and enjoyable." -- UBC Forest Sciences website as viewed Dec. 18, 2008: http://genetics.forestry.ubc.ca/book.html
