Binkley Dean Faculty of Forestry H P HE Faculty of Forestry has made tremendous progress during the last several years. Student enrolments are up, we have implemented new undergraduate and graduate degree programs, the faculty have greatly increased their research activities, and we have launched major new activities in international forestry, continuing studies and applied conservation biology. With our quarterly newsletter Branch Lines and this annual report — our first — we are providing you with a better understanding of the Faculty. This report covers the Faculty's activities for the period April 1, 1991 through March 31, 1992. Individual sections for each of the Departments (Forest Sciences, Harvesting and Wood Science, and Forest Resources Management) introduce their faculty and staff, and describe departmental plans. The Faculty is among the most research-intensive academic forestry units in North America. A section on research gives the title, investigator and supporting agency for all externally sponsored research projects currently underway within the Faculty. These now total about $5.6 million, or close to $140,000/full-time equivalent faculty member, second only to the Faculty of Medicine at UBC. To help sustain and manage this important activity, I recently appointed Prof. John McLean as an Associate Dean of the Faculty, responsible for graduate studies and research. The research enterprise results in a large number of publications. We list these alphabetically by first author. Please write to the UBC author directly if you would like to receive a copy of any of these. The Faculty includes four units that support our teaching and research activities: the University Research Forests, International Programs, the Forestry Continuing Studies Network, and the Centre for Applied Conservation Biology. • The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest (on the Coast) and the Alex Fraser Research Forest (in the Interior) provide locations for field studies, research and the Faculty's two field schools required in the undergraduate forestry program. • The international forestry program works from our strengths in education, and seeks to build collaborative relationships with other institutions similar to the Faculty. Because of the importance of the Pacific Rim to British Columbia, our efforts centre on countries of this region — Japan, Taiwan, the People's Republic of China, the Russian Far East, Korea, South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and countries of Pacific Latin America. Over the next several years, we plan to build a more significant program of training, research and collaboration in this region. • The Forestry Continuing Studies Network works through the regional colleges in B.C. to bring high-quality continuing education programs to forestry professionals and technicians, and the public more broadly. Forestry Canada and the B.C. Forest Service provide the majority of the support for this program. • The Centre for Applied Conservation Biology brings the theories of conservation biology to bear on problems of land management in British Columbia and other locations sharing similar ecosystems. In addition to its research mission, the Centre has a major program designed to inform the public, the media and politicians about the scientific aspects of conservation. The report closes with a discussion of our academic programs and students. Both graduate and undergraduate enrolments have seen trend-line increases during the past five years, and total student enrolment (computed on a weighted full-time equivalent basis) is approaching the peak levels of the early 1980's. We recently introduced a new B.Sc. program in Natural Resources Conservation, and substantially revised our B.S.F. program. For the first time in the Faculty's history, we now have a quota on first-year enrolments. I am personally interested in your thoughts on our programs and plans, and especially on this annual report, our first. You can reach me by telephone at (604) 822-2467, fax at (604) 822-8645 or E-Mail at clark_binkley @mtsg.ubc.ca. I look forward to hearing from you. 2 UBC Faculty of Forestry OFFICE OF THE DEAN KOZAK, Antal (Tony) — B.S.F. (Sopron), M.F., Ph.D. (Brit. Col.), D.Sc.

He will join the Department as Professor and Head in the fall of 1992. LAVENDER, Denis P. After more than seven years as Head of the Forest Sciences Department. Dr. Lavender's research has encompassed many aspects of the biology of north temperate conifers, including studies on germination, mineral nutrition, growth regulators, shoot dormancy, stress resistance, photoperiodic responses and development of cold hardiness. His findings have resulted in improvements in nursery and silvicultural practice. In this context, we particularly note his involvement in the formation of the Silvicultural Institute of British Columbia. Dr. Lavender is returning to Corvalis, Oregon, where he intends to continue some work with the College of Forestry at Oregon State University. NORTHCOTE, Thomas G. After more than thirty years of service to UBC where his principal research interest was in the ecology of fish species in coastal streams and lakes. Dr. Northcote's research also involv- ed significant contributions to knowledge of fish habitat in Europe, New Zealand, and in Peru, where he led a team of scientists investi- gating the effects of man's activities on the water quality and fish populations of Lake Titicaca. ACHIEVEMENTS AND PLANS Forest Sciences Department ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1991-92 • We have broadened the undergraduate curriculum to increase its attractiveness to science students. • Department members helped revise campus plant physiology offerings so that an under- graduate course is now cross-listed in Botany, Plant Science and Forest Sciences. • The initial stages of the development of a Centre for Applied Conservation Biology have been successfully completed. PLANS FOR 1992-93 • The Faculty will be asked to approve a final proposal for block instruction in silviculture. • Further departmental programs depend upon policies developed by the incoming department head, Dr. Gene Namkoong. 1991 Annual Report 7 HARVESTING AND WOOD SCIENCE DEPARTMENT Paul Steiner Acting Head Stavros Avramidis David Barrett Jonathan Fannin Colette Breuil Andrew Howard David Cohen Joseph McNeel Simon Ellis Thomas Maness John Nelson Jack Saddler Laszlo Paszner S.E.

Retirements KENNEDY, Robert Former Dean of the Faculty of Forestry from 1983-1990. A Fellow of the Academy of Wood Science and internationally recognized for his contributions in the field of Wood Anatomy. During his 38-year career as a wood scientist he has made outstanding contributions in the areas of education, government and professional service. We can cite achievements in a number of areas. These include: • Academic review of the Harvesting and Wood Science curriculum. • Restructuring the Harvesting program to enhance the integrated resource manage- ment component. • Opening a wood products laboratory that provides new teaching and research facilities for wood composites, wood physics and wood mechanical properties. • Establishing a Biotechnology Chair with research facilities in the Paprican building. • Significantly increasing research funding because of Faculty expansion over the last three years using Funds for Education Excellence and NSERC/Industrial chair programs. • Substantially increasing graduate enrolment. • Installing several major equipment items including a dry kiln, hot press, lumber stress grader and geotextile test bed. PLANS FOR 1992-93 A full Department review will be undertaken prior to the appointment of a permanent head. As part of this review process we propose to change the Department name to Forest Operations and Wood Science to reflect the changing scope of activities beyond that of traditional Forest Harvesting. Academic plans include developing a non- thesis Masters program in Forest Operations and considering of a cooperative program option within the Department. Both issues are important for increasing undergraduate and graduate enrolment. Plans are underway to develop a Chair in Wood Construction with linkages between this department, Civil Engineering and Architec- ture. We will promote enhanced research opportunities by encouraging integrated skills within the Department and by expanding cooperative programs with industry and government.

We have changed the B.S.F. (Forest Resources Management Major) program to include social and cultural considerations in forestry. First and second year students will start in this modified program in September 1992. We plan to launch a newly developed undergraduate program in Natural Resources Conservation (B.Sc.) in September 1992. The work to develop a professional non- thesis M F program is now completed and will be submitted to Senate for final approval during the summer of 1992. Vacancies resulting from retirements in 1989 and 1990 have not been filled. Sessional lecturers have been used during 1991-92 to meet the Department's heavy teaching requirements. PLANS FOR 1992-93 The objectives of the Department for 1992-93 are to increase the number of graduate degrees granted, increase research productivity and launch the new Natural Resources Conserva- tion and the professional non-thesis M.F. programs, while continuing to improve the quality of the professional (B.S.F.) under- graduate education. To accomplish these objectives the Department will: • Either late in 1992-93, or early in 1993-94, recruit new faculty members to fill the outstanding vacancies in the Department. • Recognize as "growth nodes" for research and graduate studies certain areas that are of critical importance to Canadian forest management and in which the Department has a potential for excellence. These include: Forest Economics and Policy Analysis; Forest Biometrics (forest mensuration, inventory, growth and yield); Geographic Information Systems for Forest Management (GIS, remote sensing); and Natural Resources Conservation. 14 UBC Faculty of Forestry OFFICES, AWARDS AND DISTINCTIONS AVRAMIDIS, S. • Committee Member, American Society for Testing and Materials, D4444. • Committee Member, Society of Wood Science and Technology, Membership Committee.

MACMILLAN Lecture in Forestry Dr. Kenton Miller, a Senior Associate of the World Resources Institute, Washington, D.C. gave the 42nd H.R. MacMillan Lecture in Forestry on November 7, 1991. Dr. Miller's talk was entitled "Biodiversity and the Forestry Profession: Perspectives for the 1990s and beyond." The H.R. MacMillan Lectureship in Forestry was established through the generosity of Mr. H.R. MacMillan, C.B.E., D.Sc., LL.D. and the H.R. MacMillan Family Fund. The Lecture- ship funds the presentation and publication of lectures by outstanding individuals in fields relating to forest resources management. TWO OTHER very successful ongoing Faculty lecture series offered during 1991-92 were the Faculty of Forestry Seminar Series and the Students for Forestry Awareness Speaker Series. These weekly lecture series, incorporat- ing speakers from both on and off campus, are open to the public. On March 4, 1992, the UBC Faculty of Forestry and the Department of English jointly sponsored a seminar by Dr. Kim R. Stafford, the Director of the Northwest Writing Institute at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. The title of Dr. Stafford's talk was "The Cultural Meaning of Forests." LESLIE L. SCHAFFER Lecture in Forest Sciences Dr. Peter Morand, President of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada gave the 9th Leslie L. Schaffer Lecture in Forest Science on December 3, 1991. His talk was entitled "Challenges in Forestry Research." The Leslie L. Schaffer Lectureship in Forest Sciences was established in the memory of Leslie L. Schaffer, D. Sc., former vice- president of Western Plywood Co. Ltd. by Mrs. Leslie L. Schaffer to finance lectures and publications by visiting forest scientists at the Faculty of Forestry, UBC. A highly successful Faculty Research Day followed Dr. Morand's talk with more than twenty poster displays and three talks covering forestry-related research from across campus.

The results are very encouraging from silvicultural, aesthetic and economic points of view. We are using GIS to determine locations where these systems may be applicable and to assess the effects of these systems on sustainable timber harvests. 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 the Malcolm Knapp Forest, and since 1987 fifty 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 the 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. Alex Fraser Research Forest Our objectives for 1991-92 were to establish significant research projects and to complete a 5-year development plan. We made good progress on attracting new research projects with nine new files opened. BC Research funded tests on embryogenesis-derived seedlings and the use of bacterial cultures to promote tree growth. The Ministry of Forests funded a study of spruce terminal weevils. A cooperative study with the Ministry and Weldwood is examining an alternative to clear- cutting. In addition, the Ministry supports a variety of studies through silviculture funding. Two of these continue to examine the impacts of juvenile spacing on wildlife habitat. By refocusing planning efforts, we com- pleted a 20-year plan. We also made good progress on a 5-year plan with considerable interaction with the Ministry of Environment. Ongoing silviculture contracts with the Ministry of Forests funded an additional staff position for the year. In support of the harvesting program, we had 3.5 km of new road built at a cost of $35,000. An additional 12 km of road was up- graded at a cost of $13,200. MUNRO, Donald D.

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1991-92 Malcolm Knapp Research Forest Objectives set for 1991-92 were to establish significant research projects, to develop harvest systems other than clearcutting, and to assess long-term effects of these systems with the aid of geographic information systems. In addition to continuing the established long-term projects, researchers started a total of twelve new projects. Several alternative harvest systems were examined operationally; micro clearcuts, partial cuts, thinning and salvage operations were conducted in twelve different areas. Workers removed approximately 33 per PLANS FOR 1992-93 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. Target harvest levels are 8,000 m3 for the Malcolm Knapp and 5,000 m3 for the Alex Fraser Forest. We will implement alternatives to clearcutting wherever feasible and will design a full resource inventory of the Alex Fraser Forest.

Director of International Forestry Programs lV/r EMBERS of the UBC Faculty of Forestry possess a considerable breadth of expertise that is often in demand international- ly. This range of expertise extends from forest economics, policy, marketing and management, to remote sensing, geographic information systems, ecology and integrated resource plan- ning and management and associated subjects. Faculty members have varied experiences internationally including foreign resident long- term project direction and short-term assign- ments in addition to experience gained from regular academic duties involving international travel and teaching graduate students from countries worldwide. This expertise is coordinated and made available to interested parties (government, industry or private) 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 indivi- dualized study programs on the University campus or in the host country, and organizing conferences, seminars and field trips. Projects recently completed or currently underway include: REGIONAL CORPORATIONS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM Canada (CIDA) • Colombia Human Resource Development Project Objectives To provide technical assistance to Colombian Regional Development Corporations to assist in preparing an advanced watershed manage- ment plan. UBC participation (completed) The Faculty of Forestry designed and delivered a 31-day instructional program for 16 profes- sional staff of three Colombian Regional Corporations and the Colombian National Planning Department. The specially designed program included campus lectures and seminars in topics related to resource planning and sustainable development and field trips to interior and coastal British Columbia.

The Network was established in response to the increasing supply of new information on sustainable forest resource management. In the past, independent agencies and organizations developed programs to make this information available to professionals, technical personnel and other individuals who are interested in forest resource management issues. No institution had the mandate to co- ordinate these initiatives. In late 1990, the Faculty of Forestry at UBC created a task force to examine the role that the university should take in improving forestry continuing education in British Columbia. During early 1991, the UBC Faculty of Forestry joined forces with the community colleges offering forest technology programs (Selkirk, Malaspina, and Northwest), B.C. Institute of Technology (BCIT), University College of the Cariboo (UCC) and the Univer- sity of Northern B.C. (UNBC) to create the B.C. Forestry Continuing Studies Network (FCS Network). In July 1991, a total of $393,577 was provided by Forestry Canada, through the Canada-British Columbia Partner- ship Agreement on Forest Resource Develop- ment: FRDA II, and the B.C. Ministry of Forests to establish the FCS Network. The FCS Network is an independent, non- profit organization committed to bringing British Columbians quality adult education in sustainable forest resource management. The strategic objectives of the FCS Network are: 1. Encourage cooperation and partnerships among the existing providers of forestry continuing studies activities in B.C. to develop a coordinated program. 2. Provide quality activities throughout B.C. to meet the needs in local areas. 3. Provide leadership in continuing education for professional and technical personnel in forest resource management. The FCS Network includes Delivery Centres at the cooperating educational institutions, a Provincial Office at the Faculty of Forestry at UBC and broad-based Advisory Boards for each office. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1991-92 • Established the Provincial Office in the MacMillan Building of the UBC Faculty of Forestry and created the Provincial Advisory Board. • Staffed Delivery Centres at Selkirk College in Castlegar and UNBC in Prince George and created local Advisory Boards. • Organized the first annual Forestry Continuing Studies Workshop for 161 cooperating organizations. • Created a computerized mailing list including government agencies, forest companies, consulting firms and interested individuals. • Produced and distributed a calendar of forestry continuing studies activities. PLANS FOR 1992-93 • Secure $883,600 from FRDA II and the B.C. Ministry of Forests. • Staff Delivery Centres at UCC in Kamloops and at Malaspina College in Naniamo and establish local Advisory Boards. • Organize a minimum of two activities per month at each Delivery Centre. • Establish a Provincial Professional/ Technical Audience Sector Working Group to define continuing education priorities for this audience and facilitate collaborative projects to address these priorities. • Produce and distribute calendars of provin- cial and local activities. • Develop databases of experts in designing, producing and delivering activities, and descriptions of available activities. • Prepare and distribute a discussion paper on adult forestry education in B.C. • Provide a series of workshops to train instructors and facilitators of continuing studies activities for forestry audiences. • Diversify funding sources.

Director of Forestry Continuing Studies Network SATO, Shirley B.A. Office Manager 1991 Annual Report 29 CENTRE FOR APPLIED IONSERVATION BIOLOGY CONSERVING biological diversity while sustaining robust economic development is a core problem facing British Columbia today. 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 pointed. Education BUNNELL, Fred L. B.Sc., Ph.D. Director of Centre for Applied Conservation Biology Associate Director (vacant) The educational program will have three elements: an affiliated undergraduate program, a 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 that was recently initiated by the Faculty of Forestry. That pro- gram includes a core of natural science courses in forest, plant, and animal ecology, conserva- tion 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 will offer a new course next year "Issues in Biological Conservation." The course will be jointly listed with the Departments of Botany and Zoology. 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 propose to adapt 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. The Faculty of Forestry, sponsored by Forestry Canada, is currently planning the first such conference — "Incorporating Biological Diversity in Forest Policy and Management Decisions" — for the 1992-93 academic year. Research Interdisciplinary, cooperative research is the key to answering the broad questions of con- servation biology. Currently, the necessary expertise is scattered throughout the university, the province, and even internationally. The Centre will bring these scholars together to assist collaboration and cooperation, thus hastening advances in research. The Centre will test conservation biology theories in the context of forested ecosystems, and apply this knowledge to managed forests, parks and natural areas. The Centre will establish major long-term research projects carried out by its own staff and a network of cooperating scientists from government, industry, and academia. Three such efforts are currently underway: • A UBC-wide proposal for a major ecolo- gical study of Vancouver Island to be funded under the Green Plan Ecosystems Research program (Prof. J.P. Kimmins). • A major effort to establish in British Columbia a system of experimental forests (Prof. G.F. Weetman). • UBC involvement in three of the proposed Forestry Canada Model Forests (Prof. G.F. Weetman). Fred Bunnell can be contacted at (604) 822-5724 or fax (604) 822-8645. 30 UBC Faculty of Forestry 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 Harvesting — 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 As the most general of the five programs, this major focuses on the multidisciplinary aspects of forest resources biology and management to include resources such as timber, range, wild- life, 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. Forest Harvesting This major is designed to prepare the graduate for professional forestry responsibilities, with emphasis on the planning, design and adminis- tration of forest harvesting operations. Areas of study include: design and construction of forest roads, bridges and drainage structures; selection, planning and supervision of logging systems; site protection and rehabilitation; and the design and development of computer applications for harvesting systems. Wood Science and Industry This major is designed to give students a strong technical background in wood as a material and a good understanding of wood products manu- facture, marketing, engineering and utilization. Areas of concentration include: business management and marketing, industrial process technology, 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 eco- logy of forest species. Emphasis is placed on basic and interactional phenomena that influ- ence the establishment, growth and develop- ment of trees and other forest resources. These include genetics, soils, weather and climate, form, function, ecology, microbiology and other foundation courses in entomology, pathology, silvics, silviculture and wood science. Natural Resources Conservation This new interdisciplinary program is designed to prepare students for careers in the conser- vation 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 understanding of the natural and social sciences underlying the conservation and management of resources associated with wild- lands. It will also provide students with an appreciation for the socio-economic environ- ments 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 1991-92 Comprehensive changes to the undergraduate programs in forest resources management and forest harvesting have allowed us to incorporate more basic science, place a greater emphasis on communications, provide more complete training in environmental aspects of forest operations and foster closer articulation with regional colleges. A new program developed for forestry graduates from B.C.'s technical institutions will allow these students to complete UBC's Forest Resources Management program in three additional years of study. The Faculty has initiated a new inter- disciplinary program in the conservation and management of parks and natural areas. PLANS FOR 1992-93 We will continue to develop a new non-thesis Master of Forestry (M.F.) program. The Faculty will implement the first year of the new B.Sc. program in Natural Resources Conservation. 1991 Annual Report 31 UNDER- GRADUATE PROGRAMS Total Enrolment Figures Enrolment for undergraduate students (in all four years of the forestry program) reached a seven year high in 1991-92 of 285 students. This figure represents an increase of eight per cent from the previous year's total of 265 students. An indication of recent trends in enrolment figures is provided by the graph below: 450 400 350 300 ENROLMENT 250 STATISTICS 200 150 100 50 76/77 79/80 82/83 85/86 88/89 91/92 Total enrolment and new enrolment 1976/77-1991/92 As a consequence of recent increases in enrolment, the number of students in the earlier year classes is larger than in later year classes. In 1992-93, we expect that transfers into second year will offset the low number of first year students. 120 100 80 60 40 20 0 Enrolment by year of study for 1991/92 1 2 3 4 Year of S ludy As seen in the following table, most of our undergraduates enrol in the Forest Resources Management major: Distribution of students among majors 1991/92 Major Number % of enrolled total Forest Resources Management 169 59.3 Forest Harvesting 24 8.4 Forest Sciences 18 6.3 Wood Science 25 8.8 Undeclared 49 17.2 Total 285 100 Female students represent 20 per cent of the above total.
