Enrolments continue to trend upward, educational innovation remains vibrant, and research activities - already significant - are expanding. This annual report - our second - covers the period from 1 April, 1992 through 31 March, 1993. Individual sections describe each of the three departments (Forest Resources Management, Forest Sciences, and Wood Science), and the four significant additional program areas (University Research Forests, International Forestry Programs, Centre for Applied Conservation Biology, the BC Forestry Continuing Studies Network). This year's report includes expanded sections on Sponsored Research and on Special Lectures. The report concludes with some information on our programs of study, student enrolments, awards, and graduates. Highlights of the year include: Enrolment This year we sustained a 16.8% increase in undergraduate enrolment and a 19.4% increase in graduate enrolment. With 311 undergraduates in our "traditional" (Forestry, Forest Science and Wood Science and Industry) programs, we are close to our target of 350. Enrolment in the new B.Sc. program in Natural Resources Conservation is exceeding our expectations. While we still accept all qualified transfer students from B.C. universities, colleges and technical institutes, we anticipate hitting our quotas for first-year enrolment from high school next year. Graduate student enrolment equaled 177 as of 1 January, 1993, so we are close to our overall target of 200 for M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs. Educational Programs and Student Services Because of significant student interest, we initiated years 1 and 2 of our new Natural Resources Conservation program Uiis year instead of year 1 alone as we had originally planned. The later years of the program require courses in areas outside the current range of faculty capability. To handle these additional needs we are planning on hiring several new faculty members during the 1993-94 academic year, and will contract the delivery of one course (in public communications and conflict resolution) with a local firm with considerable practical experience in this area. We implemented the second year of our revised B.S.F. program this year. The faculty has devoted considerable attention to improving the integration of instruction across the various courses and years. While a fully integrated, team-taught, problem- and field-based term does not appear feasible, we have identified several, less radical ways to insure that students see each course as part of a larger whole that relates to actually solving forest management problems. Six students enrolled in our new three-year Forestry degree program option for forestry technician graduates from BCIT and other similar programs. The Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board recently accredited this program for a full six years commencing 1 July, 1993. The Wood Science and Industry program now includes a cooperative learning option where the student spends one year in a job in conjunction with the four-year university program. To improve program effectiveness and enrolment levels, we have initiated a detailed but broadly conceived review of Uiis course of study. The review is considering a wide range of options including creating 2 UBC Faculty of Forestry a wood science stream in the UBC engineering programs, and focussing more strongly on professional and academic graduate instruction. The review will be completed during 1993-94. This year we also improved student services significantly. Ms. Donna Goss joined the Faculty about a year ago as Coordinator of Student Services and brings considerable talent and enthusiasm to the position. She organized the first ever "Career Fair" bringing alumni working in various aspects of forestry and natural resources conservation to UBC to discuss career options with students. Next year we plan to continue this successful event, and to combine it with a workshop for students on techniques for job interviews and effective CVs. We also worked hard to improve the climate for women in the Faculty of Forestry. These efforts included several faculty-wide discussion sessions on the subject, a diagnostic survey, and revisions in our standard teaching evaluation form to track gender-related issues in the classroom. We hope to hire a First Nations Forestry Coordinator next year to help us increase participation by First Nations people in the Faculty, and to assist in bringing First Nations issues into our curriculum. The BC Forestry Continuing Studies Network put on a total of 204 sessions - over twice the number anticipated in the original business plan developed when we initiated the Network last year. The Network now includes a provincial office at UBC and delivery centres at Malaspina College, Selkirk College, University College of the Cariboo and the University of Northern British Columbia. During 1993-94, we plan to establish a new delivery centre at Northwest Community College to provide service in this area. Our international forestry program continues to expand. This year we completed a forestry training program with the People's Republic of China. In collaboration with one of the international consulting firms in Vancouver (Sandwell), we successfully competed against the major forestry education institutes in the world for an Asian Development Bank project providing institutional support to the forestry faculties in Harbin and Beijing. We are currently working on projects in the Russian Far East, Chile and Malaysia, and are developing MOUs with research organizations and education institutions in Taiwan, China, Malaysia, New Zealand, Chile and Sweden. Research Extramural support for research in the Faculty of Forestry climbed 6.8% this year, and now stands at about $141,000/faculty member. Although the audited financial information for the rest of the University is not yet available, this level of activity will no doubt sustain our leadership position within the University as a whole. The research support is well distributed among federal, provincial and private sources. The UBC Faculty of Forestry was again by far the most successful of any forestry faculty in Canada in the prestigious, highly competitive NSERC strategic grants program. This outstanding performance reflects the efforts and excellence of individual faculty members here. They are without equal in Canada, and rank with the best in North America and Europe. This year Dr. John McLean assumed the new position of Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Research. His activities include developing a new computer-based tracking system for our large and growing number of graduate students. Once fibre-optic cabling is completed in the MacMillan Building (scheduled for this summer), we plan to initiate a decentralized research services "node" in the Faculty to provide better, more timely administrative support to faculty members seeking extra- mural support. John also organized our very successful symposium "Gypsy Mollis in the Lower Mainland" this spring. Faculty Administration This year we completed external reviews of all three departments. As a result of these reviews, we reorganized the Faculty by merging the Forest Operations group with the Department of Forest Resources Management. This greatly strengthens our capacity to deal with forest-level management and planning questions, and with watershed hydrology. In addition, the new Department of Wood Science can now focus more clearly on its own strengths in the areas of forest products, production processes and the basic sciences related to wood products. This year we were able to recruit new Heads for each of our departments. Dr. Gordon Baskerville from the University of New Brunswick will head the Department of Forest Resources Management, and Dr. David Barrett from our own Faculty will lead the new Department of Wood Science. Dr. Gene Namkoong joined us from North Carolina State University and the USDA Forest Service to head the Department of Forest Sciences. Each of these individuals has an outstanding international reputation in academic and research leadership. 1992 Annual Report 3 This year we initiated a new Forestry Advisory Committee to provide strategic and operational advice to the University and to the Faculty of Forestry. The Committee, chaired by Mr. Tom Buell, includes about 40 high-level leaders from the provincial, national and international forest products industry, environmental NGO community and governmental natural resources agencies. Dr. Walter Koerner has kindly agreed to serve as honourary chair of the Committee. Pacific Forest Sciences Centre Planning for the new Pacific Forest Sciences Centre continues on schedule. This 10,000 m2 build- ing will house the Faculty of Forestry, several UBC centres and institutes related to forestry, and space specifically designed to encourage faculty from all departments at UBC to engage in inter- disciplinary work on forestry problems. The building will also include 11 modern classrooms, a major lecture theatre and 8 teaching laboratories. Completion is scheduled for the beginning of the 1996-97 academic year. Inadequate, poor quality space is by far the single most important constraint on improving forestry education and research at UBC. We are grateful that the provincial government has included this project in their budget this year. Plans for 1993-94 During the 1993-94 academic year, we plan to revise our draft strategic plan. This plan will chart our course over the next three years with adequate recognition of longer term trends and needs. Although the planning process will begin by identifying the key issues facing the Faculty, some of them are already apparent: (i) Our capacity to meet the ever-expanding demands on the Faculty will be limited by the tight provincial budget situation. As a result, increasing program efficiency and raising significant amounts of external support for the Faculty will be major activities during the next few years. (ii) The demands on foresters will continue to increase. The need for effective problem-based instruction will not abate, the need for high-quality continuing education will expand, and the desirability of master's-level professional forestry and forest products education will become ever more apparent. Our challenge is to respond to these needs in the context of a declining real budget for the University as a whole. (iii) Technologically advanced, environmentally sound wood products and processing tech- nologies will play a larger role in the forest products industry. Our Department of Wood Science will play a central role in developing these processes and products, and in educating industry managers and research leaders. Our success in this area will depend heavily on collaboration with other departments at UBC, with Forintek, FERIC and PAPRICAN, and with the forest products industry itself. Only through aggressive, innovative leadership will our Wood Science program avoid the difficulties that similar university-based programs throughout North America have suffered. (iv) The management of forests, parks and preserves will rely ever-more strongly on eco- system concepts and applied conservation biology, despite the weak empirical basis for some of the prescriptions derived from these approaches. Providing timely research needed to support rational application of these important ideas will comprise a major challenge for us all.

Dr. Baskerville served a two-year term as Assistant Deputy Minister of Forest Resources with the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources from 1980-1982. He will join the Department as Professor and Head in May, 1993. Promotions/Tenures MARSHALL, Peter L. — promoted to Associate Professor effective July, 1993. NELSON, John D. — promoted to Associate Professor and granted tenure effective July, 1993. Retirements REED, F. Leslie C. Professor Les Reed retired on August 31, 1992 after eight years in the NSFRC/lndustry Chair of Forest Policy. During his service to UBC Professor Reed took a leadership role in the analysis of forest policy as practiced in B.C. and Canada. His activities embraced such issues as Canada's trade policy, research and development efforts, and tax treatment of forestry related business. His research chair was supported by NSERC, forest companies, industry associations, and two unions — International Woodworkers of America and Canadian Paperworkers Union. Professor Reed helped to raise the profile of the Faculty of Forestry with the govern- ment, industry and public. In his role as an undergraduate teacher, he will be remembered for his introduction of the humanities to forestry education. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1992-93 During the 1992-93 academic year, first and second year students started our improved Forest Resources Management Program. We launched a new Natural Resources Conserva- tion (B.Sc.) Program in September 1992. Seventeen students registered in the first year, of the program and five students registered directly to the program's second year. Effective November 1, 1992, the Forest Harvesting Group (Professors Fannin, Howard, Nelson, Salcudean, Tait and Young) of the Department of Harvesting and Wood Science changed their name to the Forest Operations Group and merged with the Department of Forest Resources Management. This merger significantly strengthened the Department's research activities, and increased the Depart- ment's responsibilities in undergraduate and graduate teaching. ACHIEVEMENTS AND PLANS Forest Resources Management Department PLANS FOR 1993-94 Members of the Department will continue to work on the development of a professional non- thesis M.F. program to be launched in September 1994. Further plans and departmental programs depend upon policies developed by the incoming Department Head, Dr. Gordon Baskerville. 1992 Annual Report 9 FOREST SCIENCES DEPARTMENT Philip Burton Edith Camm Gene Namkoong Head John Carlson Fred Bunnell Chris Chanway Robert Guy John McLean J.P.(Hamish) Kimmins Tom Sullivan Karel Klinka Bart van der Kamp Michael Feller Kathy Martin Gordon Weetman John Worrall FOREST SCIENCES DEPARTMENT NAMKOONG, Gene Professor and Head • Population and Quantitative Genetics B.S.

These extramural funds now exceed — by over one-third — the budget provided to the Faculty by the University. Our research activities amount to more than $141,000 per faculty member per year, a figure that exceeds the level for all faculties which teach undergraduates, and trails only the Faculties of Medicine and Graduate Studies.

A collection of agencies in the federal government currently provides forty per cent of the total. Agencies within the provincial government provide just over one- third of the total extramural funding. Private organizations (ranging from the forest products industry in B.C. to international pharmaceutical firms, to the World Wildlife Fund) provide one quarter of the funding. Our large, broadly diversified research program is enhanced by collaborative research agreements with other departments at the University of British Columbia, FERIC, Forintek, PAPRICAN and BC Research.

'T 1 HE UBC Malcolm Knapp Research Forest at Maple Ridge and the Alex Fraser Research Forest at Williams Lake are dedicated to research, education and demonstration in the practice of forestry. The forests are managed as outdoor scienti- fic laboratories for graduate students and researchers. Since 1949 more than 600 projects have been initiated on die Malcolm Knapp Forest, and since 1987 over sixty projects have been initiated on the Alex Fraser Forest. These projects serve as a foundation for education and demonstrations. A late summer field school is held annually at the Alex Fraser Forest for second year undergraduates while a spring field school is conducted at die Malcolm Knapp Forest for third year undergraduates. Harvesting operations are a part of the management of both forests. We maintain har- vest volumes at sustainable levels consistent with the need for research reserves and integrated use. We use revenues from the sale of forest products to partially finance the main- tenance and operation of both forests. Continu- ing education programs in the form of short courses and field trips are offered at both forests, and the professional staff all participate in teaching academic courses in the Faculty. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1992-93 Malcolm Knapp Research Forest Our objectives for 1992-93 were to establish significant research projects, to implement harvesting strategies to respond to research needs and to create research opportunities. A total of 24 new research projects were initiated, primarily by scientists and graduate students from UBC, SFU and the B.C. Ministry of Forests. Harvesting was planned to take advan- tage of an improved log market in late 1992 and early 1993. Approximately 16,000 m3 was harvested from 14 separate mini-openings, all in second-growth stands. Alex Fraser Research Forest Our objectives for 1992-93 included the installation of significant research projects, and completion of final revisions on the Management and Working Plan for the Research Forest. Twelve new research files were opened by a variety of government, private, and academic Donald D. Munro Director institutions. Of particular value to the forest were projects conducted in Knife Creek by the Ministry of Forests Research Branch and Forestry Canada, which will be useful in future planning and research. In addition to new projects, maintenance and development of existing projects continued. Since the creation of the forest in 1987, a total of 65 research files have been opened. Timber harvest for die year amounted to 8,967 m3, and consisted of clearcutting, shelter- wood harvesting, salvage of insect damaged timber, and timber harvested from the forest in trespass. A neighbouring private land owner harvested three hectares in trespass on the Research Forest, which was discovered before the logs were shipped. This was the final year in the first five year cut control period, and the harvest for the forest was balanced over the period with a 0.05% undercut carried forward into the next period. Work on the Ministry of Forests outstanding silviculture obligations continued with approxi- mately $80,000 of funding for tree planting, site preparation, and survey work. Additional fund- ing was secured for further development of public trails and brochures. PLANS FOR 1993-94 Our highest priority for the Research Forests continues to be to install and maintain signifi- cant research projects. We will follow manage- ment and harvesting strategies that permit flexibility to respond to research needs and to create research opportunides. In response to continuing budget cuts and the University re- positioning strategy a policy of aggressive cost recovery from Research Forest users will be completed and the initial phase-in commenced in early 1994.

This knowledge base extends from forest economics, policy, marketing and management, to remote sensing, geographic information systems, ecology and integrated resource planning and management and associated subjects. This expertise is coordinated and made available to interested parties through International Forestry Programs in the Faculty of Forestry. Services include, but are not limited to, providing experts for short-term foreign assignments, designing and delivering individualized study programs on the Univer- sity campus or in the host country, and organiz- ing conferences, seminars and field trips. The focus of International Forestry Programs is on Pacific Rim projects particular- ly those dealing with large scale land manage- ment issues, and involving collaborative agreements or memoranda of understanding with educational and research institutions. Projects recently completed or currently underway include: INTEGRATED INTENSIVE FOREST MANAGEMENT (PHASE II) • China Forest Management Project Objectives — To provide technical assistance to Chinese professionals in integrated intensive forest management. UBC participation (completed) —The Faculty, in cooperation with T.M. Thomson, Division of Sandwell Inc., provided theoretical and practical training to nine Chinese foresters sent to Canada under the terms of a CIDA- China project. Personalized instruction and programs were developed and delivered in GIS, plant physiology, tree improvement and silviculture. • Chile Sustainable Development Project Objectives — To develop institutional linkages with Chilean Forestry Faculties and to initiate cooperative research programs in environ- mental management and natural resource sustainable development. UBC participation (underway) — The Faculty, in cooperation with the North-South Institute, participated with scientists from Chile, Simon Fraser University and the B.C. Ministries of Forests and Environment in a working group meeting in Vancouver to design a cooperative research program. • Southeast Asia University Linkages Objectives — To develop institutional linkages to foster cooperative research projects and exchanges of graduate students and faculty. UBC participation (underway) — The Faculty, in cooperation with the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, has joined a consortium of S.E. Asian Universities to foster cooperative research and exchanges of graduate students and faculty. • China Forest Education Project Objectives — To provide training in silvi- culture, forest management and economics to Chinese foresters. UBC participation (underway) — The Faculty, in cooperation with T.M. Thomson, Division of Sandwell Inc., under a contract with the Asian Development Bank is designing and delivering an educational program for Chinese foresters. UBC Faculty members will teach short courses in China and several Chinese forestry professors will spend six months at UBC. • Russian Economics, Administration and Policy Project Objectives — To improve management skills through academic training to encourage market- oriented reforms. UBC participation (proposed) — This project is designed to bring students to UBC for a 10-month program including language training, academic courses and field trips. • ASEAN Institute of Forest Management, Malaysia Objectives — To train institute staff to improve forest management skills. UBC participation (proposed) — The B.C. Ministry of Forests is the Canadian Executing Agency for Phase II of the ASEAN Institute of Forest Management project sponsored by CIDA. The Faculty is proposing to assist the Ministry in the design and delivery of special education programs for institute staff sent to Canada for training.

To respond to this problem the Faculty of Forestry created the Centre for Applied Conservation Biology to focus UBC's resources on the management of parks, natural areas and other kinds of forested landscapes where conservation values are pre-eminent. This new Centre is unique in its incorpora- tion of a strong undergraduate program, broad definition of educational targets, close links between basic and applied disciplines, and focus on forested ecosystems where the conflicts between biological diversity and economic activities are most contentious. Education The educational program has three elements: an affiliated undergraduate program, a developing graduate program, and short courses. The target audiences are professional foresters, managers of parks and natural areas, the public, and the public media. The Centre is closely linked to the new undergraduate B.Sc. (Natural Resource Conservation) program recently initiated by the Faculty of Forestry. That program includes a core of natural science courses in forest, plant, and animal ecology, conservation biology and landscape ecology, and a suite of social science and management courses in economics, political science and philosophy to translate natural process into human values. With the support of the H.R. MacMillan Family Fund, we are offering a new graduate course, "Issues in Biological Conservation." The course will be jointly listed with the Departments of Botany and Zoology. The Centre's first major outreach program was a series of biodiversity workshops presented with the Forest Service in the southern interior of the province. Policy Conferences The University provides neutral territory to bring together the parties in the heated policy disputes that characterize resource conflict in British Columbia and elsewhere in the world. We are adapting a model developed by the Dahlem conferences for dealing with complex social/scientific issues. In these conferences, papers are drafted prior to the meeting and form the starting point for discussions occurring in plenary and smaller groups. Fred L. Bunnell Director We are seeking funds for these conferences to be matched by one or more participating agencies, government or private. We believe that joint financial sponsorship is critical for attracting the kind of high-level attention that we seek. Sponsored by Forestry Canada, we are currently planning the first such conference, "Measuring Biological Diversity for Forest Policy and Management," for the 1993-94 academic year. Research Interdisciplinary, cooperative research is the key to answering the broad questions of conservation biology. CurrenUy, the necessary expertise is scattered throughout the university, the province, and even internationally. The Centre brings these scholars together to assist collaboration and cooperation, thus hastening advances in research. The Centre is testing conservation biology theories in the context of forested ecosystems, and will help apply this knowledge to managed forests, parks and natural areas. The Centre is establishing major long-term research projects carried out by its own staff and a network of cooperating scientists from government, industry, and academia. Four such efforts are currently underway: • A major, cooperative initiative in the boreal mixed wood forest that includes replicated fragments of different sizes (Dr. A C.A. Chan-McLeod). • A major effort to establish a system of experimental forests (Prof. G.F. Weetman). • A decision-support tool evaluating econo- mic and biological consequences of forest planning at the landscape level; this effort links with the Model Forests program (Prof. F. L. Bunnell). • A large, integrated research program examining potential consequences to vertebrate diversity of forest management practices in the North Columbia Mountains (Dr. C. Galindo-Leal).

Forest Service and FRDA II via Forestry Canada. The FCS Network was created to provide quality adult education in sustainable forest resource management throughout B.C. Our initial objectives have been to: 1. 2. 3. Encourage cooperation and partnerships among the existing providers of forestry continuing studies activities in B.C. to develop coordinated programs. Provide quality education activities through- out B.C. to meet the needs in local areas. Provide leadership in continuing education for professional and technical personnel in forest resource management. The FCS Network includes Delivery Centres at cooperating educational institutions that offer formal forestry education, a Provincial Office at the Faculty of Forestry at UBC and broad-based Boards to direct each program. 1992-93 was a whirlwind year for the FCS Network. Delivery Centres were established at two more institutions, bringing the total to four Delivery Centres and allowing us to provide services throughout the province. The demand for our coordination and organization services far exceeded our expectations. A total of 204 sessions of 32 different forestry continuing studies activities were organized — over twice the number that had been anticipated. We diverted our resources at the Provincial Office and hired additional staff to help meet this demand. This change of priorities has meant that our plans to initiate provincial coordination projects have been delayed. We intend to refocus our attention on these projects during 1993-94. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1992-93 • Secured $630,000 funding from the B.C. Forest Service, and FRDA II through Forestry Canada. Established Delivery Centres and Boards to direct programs at UCC in Kamloops and Malaspina College in Nanaimo. Distributed 5000 catalogues of forestry continuing studies activities in September and 7000 in March. Delivered 204 sessions of 32 different continuing studies activities. Developed a database of descriptions of forestry continuing studies activities. Developed a database listing experts in designing, producing and delivering forestry education activities. Organized 12 workshops to train instructors and facilitators for forestry audiences. Assisted committees designing forestry education materials. Prepared training strategies for timber supply analysis and visual landscape management and completed a needs assess- ment for professional and technical training in the Vancouver Forest Region. PLANS FOR 1993-94 • Revise the 1992-97 Business Plan to secure $950,000 funding from existing sponsors. • Organize a workshop for representatives of employers, educators and associations of professional and technical forestry personnel to develop a strategy for continuing educa- tion for this audience. • Where appropriate, facilitate cooperative projects to address the priority topics identified in the above strategy. • Develop a curriculum to train instructors and facilitators for forestry audiences; design and deliver the most needed activities. • Establish a Delivery Centre at Northwest Community College in Smitliers and create a Board to direct this program. • Continue to assist Delivery Centres to organize activities. • Organize major provincial activities occurring in the Lower Mainland. • Continue to diversify our funding sources. • Assist lead organizations to develop a strategy for forestry worker training in B.C.

Provincial Coordinator SATO, Shirley B.A. Office Manager 1992 Annual Report 39 PROGRAMS OF STUDY Undergraduate Programs The Faculty of Forestry offers a 4-year degree program in each of the following five areas: • Forest Resources Management — B.S.F. • Forest Operations — B.S.F. • Wood Science and Industry — B.Sc. (Forestry). • Forest Science — B.Sc. (Forestry). • Natural Resources Conservation — B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation). Forest Resources Management This major focuses on the multidisciplinary aspects of forest resources biology and manage- ment to include resources such as timber, range, wildlife, recreation, fisheries and water. Studies deal with the unique characteristics of each resource, their interactions, and the manipula- tion of forests to yield a variety of desirable products in the context of the social and economic environment of Canadian society. The program prepares the graduate for a career in responsible integrated forest management as a professional forester. Forest Operations This major prepares the graduate for profes- sional forestry responsibilities, with emphasis on planning, design and administration of forest harvesting operations. Areas of study include: design and construction of forest roads and drainage structures; selection, planning and supervision of logging systems; site protection and rehabilitation; and the development of computer applications for harvesting systems. Wood Science and Industry This major provides a strong technical back- ground in wood as a material and a good understanding of wood products manufacture, marketing, engineering and utilization. There are three areas of concentration: • business management and marketing; • industrial process technology; and • science, engineering and biotechnology. Forest Science This major is for students interested in more specialized study of the scientific principles related to the growth, development and ecology of forest species. Emphasis is placed on basic and interactional phenomena that influence the establishment, growth and development of trees and other forest resources. These include gene- tics, soils, weather and climate, form, function, ecology, microbiology and other foundation courses in entomology, pathology, silvics, silviculture and wood science. Natural Resources Conservation This program is designed to prepare students for careers in the conservation of renewable natural resources, the management of protected areas, and planning for the integrated use of forests and associated wildlands. The program provides students with an appreciation for the socio-economic environments in which decisions concerning the management of protected areas are made, and a working knowledge of technologically advanced tools and quantitative techniques available to renewable resource planners and managers. Graduate Programs The graduate degrees available from the Faculty of Forestry are as follows: • Doctor of Philosophy — Ph. D. • Master of Forestry — M.F. • Master of Science — M.Sc. • Master of Applied Science — M. A.Sc. PROGRAM CHANGES IN 1992-93 A new three year degree program was intro- duced for B.C. forestry technology graduates. The new program serves to standardize the entrance requirements and exemptions for technician applicants. A new forestry course giving first year students a general overview of forestry was introduced as a requirement in the B.S.F. and B.Sc. (Forestry) programs. PLANS FOR 1993-94 In the Forest Resources Management program, a new core third year course in mathematical programming is to be introduced. The third year of the Natural Resources Conservation program will be implemented, with new courses taught at the second and third year levels. The Wood Science and Industry major is planning to implement a wood science co- operative option for outstanding students. The Forest Harvesting program becomes the Forest Operations program, with its name change effective for the 1993-94 academic year. 40 UBC Faculty of Forestry UNDER- GRADUATE PROGRAMS Total Enrolment Figures Enrolment for undergraduate students (in all four years of the forestry programs) is up again diis year from 285 students to 333 students.
