Long-term effects of cattle and wildlife grazing on grassland plant community recovery in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia by Brian M Wikeem( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rocky Mountain elk (Cervus canadensis), mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus), white-tailed deer (O. virginianus), and cattle (Bos taurus) have shared grassland and open forest range in the East Kootenay Region of southeastern British Columbia for more than 150 years. Early explorers and settlers, however, found the landscape dominated by forest with few large ungulate species present (Spry 1968; Nisbet 1994). A large part of the contemporary open range in the Rocky Mountain Trench (the Trench) portion of the region resulted from fires in the low-elevation forests during the 1920s and 1930s, which provided ideal habitat and range for wild ungulates and domestic livestock (Paish and Associates 1970). Since the last major forest fires in 1931, forest encroachment has advanced into these open areas, reducing forage capability for both wildlife and cattle
Evaluating soil conservation using high resolution air photos and expert elicitation( )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 54 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
Cost of adaptation : sea dikes & alternative strategies : final report( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sea level rise will affect a significant part of Metro Vancouver, and the Province of British Columbia is planning for this eventuality. Protection will require an increase in the height of existing flood defences and the construction of new flood defences. In addition to dike construction, the adoption of alternative nonstructural options for dealing with flood risk will be a necessary part of the overall strategy. The scope of this project was to develop a 'Class D' estimate of the cost to adapt flood protection to meet the rise in sea level predicted by 2100

Harvest allocation policy review by Chris Trumpy( )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The full implementation of the new Harvest Allocation policies and procedures (the allocation policy) will have a material impact on the guide outfitting industry in British Columbia. Although the new policy is transparent and consistent, it is too inflexible to deal with the diversity of circumstances that exist throughout the province. To accommodate the unique circumstances throughout the province changes to the allocation policy are proposed which push responsibility to respond to regional differences out to regional managers
Invasive species strategy for British Columbia by British Columbia( )

Forest inventory strategic plan by British Columbia( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The forest inventory program outlined in this strategic plan will help the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (FLNRO) secure both economic prosperity and environmental sustainability for British Columbians. The resource information that will be produced by the investments outlined in this plan is required for the ministry to continue to make durable decisions on the land base, and to support a healthy and competitive forest sector. This document also fulfills a commitment to develop a 5-year provincial inventory action plan, as recommended by the August 2012 report of the Special Committee on Timber Supply
Climate change adaptation : potential contributions of red alder in coastal British Columbia by Craig Farnden( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The red alder resource in British Columbia has the potential to support a future hardwood manufacturing sector over 10 times larger and considerably more diverse than the current condition. Three quarters of this increase is possible simply by managing the existing red alder resource to an intensity similar to that for conifers, with the remainder of the increase relying on climate change adaptation to take advantage of potentially improved future growing conditions. Increased harvest rates would provide the Province with commensurate social benefits in terms of jobs, taxes, and royalties. Additional benefits of increased management attention would be realized through improved ecosystem resiliency and the contributions that red alder makes to a wide variety of ecosystem services
Forest stewardship action plan for climate change adaptation, 2012-2017 by British Columbia( )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British Columbia's over-arching Climate Change Adaptation Strategy calls upon government to: 1. Build a strong foundation of knowledge and tools to help public and private decision-makers across B.C. prepare for a changing climate; 2. Make adaptation a part of B.C. Government's business, ensuring that climate change impacts are considered in planning and decision-making across government; and, 3. Assess risks and implement priority adaptation actions in key climate sensitive sectors. This action plan by BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations aligns with that strategy and signals an important new vision and policy direction for adaptation within the sphere of forest management in British Columbia

A compilation of forest biomass harvesting and related policy in Canada by Jean Roach( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A very important issue in discussions around the harvesting of woody forest biomass in Canada is whether existing policies and guidelines are adequate to ensure that it is harvested and used in a manner that will benefit present and future generations. The perception that woody biomass harvesting may stress forest resources if precautions are not taken suggests that guidelines may be needed to ensure that its harvesting is sustainable and that forest ecosystem health and site productivity are maintained. Forest biomass harvesting guidelines have been developed in several U.S. states, and in Europe, but what policies and guidelines are in place in Canada."

Informing and supporting climate change adaptation in forests through monitoring : eport for phase 3, Future forest ecosystem initiative climate change monitoring program by M Eddington( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Given the large uncertainties associated with climate change, regular and systematic measurement is the primary means for understanding what changes are actually taking place and for gathering data that can be used to improve models to predict future change. Recognising this important information need, the Future Forest Ecosystems Initiative in partnership with the Forest and Range Evaluation Program of the Ministry of Forests, Land and Natural Resource Operations engaged University of British Columbia researchers to develop a strategy for monitoring forest and rangeland species and ecosystem processes in light of climate change
Area-based forest tenures : results of public engagement and recommendations for British Columbia by Jim Snetsinger( )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British Columbia is home to one of the largest public forests in the world. Of a total land base of 95 million hectares, 55 million hectares are considered productive forest lands. Only five per cent of the land base is privately owned, meaning that most of the forests belong to the people of British Columbia. In response, April 1, 2014 government initiated a public engagement process to explore this issue further on how best to achieve government's objectives within any conversion process; more specifically regarding the social, economic and environmental benefits that should be sought from proponents through conversions and the criteria for evaluating applications and the process for implementing conversions
