T h e continued formulation of new policies by world bodies in areas such as certification bring us the realisation that we need to have a global perspective in Forestry. For our forest products to compete on the world market we must maintain a broad outlook in order to define the roles that we play in teaching, research and direct professional service to government, industry, native bands and non-governmental organisations. T h e Forest Sciences Centre research laboratories are now on stream. Faculty successes in Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) granting competitions last year have enabled the establishment of the Genetic Data Centre by Dr. Ritland and the Virtual Reality Laboratory by Dr. Sheppard. In addition, a CFI grant to Dr. Feller has provided for field installations in the aquatic-terrestrial ecosystem research project at the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest in Maple Ridge. W e also celebrated the arrival of the Forest Renewal B C Chairs who greatly enhance our senior level research and teaching capabilities in Conservation Biology, Hydrology, Forest M a n a g e m e n t and Silviculture. A very interesting session was held in early April with the Forestry Advisory Council to hear the challenges that the Forest Renewal B C Chairs have ahead of them as they establish their research programs.  Highlights of 1999/2000 The Table below provides basic indicators of the Faculty's activities over the past five years along with a forecast for the 2000/01 year.

This year we have had two retirements. Dr. Gene Namkoong, who served as head of the Forest Sciences Department and a professor of Forest and Conservation Genetics, is still making significant contributions to ongoing graduate student research although he was officially retired in 1999. A symposium on "Unifying Objectives of Evolution, Conservation and Breeding" was held in July 1999 to acknowledge Dr. N a m k o o n g ' s four decades of pioneering research in forest genetics. The event was attended by more than 110 participants representing ten countries in Europe, Asia, North and South America. Our second retirement was that of Dr. Laszlo Paszner who retired after 26 years as our professor of W o o d Chemistry. Dr. Paszner was a graduate of the Sopron Division of U B C Forestry in 1958. His m a j o r research interests were in organosolv pulping and hydrolysis of wood carbohydrates to produce sugars and ethanol.  1999 Annual  Report  1  DEAN'S MESSAGE  Several faculty searches have been completed during the past year. W e welcome Dr. Jorg Bohlmann who has a joint appointment between the Forest Sciences Department, the Botany Department and the UBC Biotechnology Laboratory. Dr. Bohlmann's research deals with the biochemistry and molecular genetics of natural product biosynthesis in plants. Dr. Gregory Smith joined the Wood Science Department where he teaches the polymer science of adhesives and coatings as part of his ongoing research in composite wood products. Dr. Shawn Mansfield joined the Wood Science Department where he has a major responsibility for developing the one-year professional masters program in fibre and wood. Also in the Wood Science Department, Dr. Robert Kozak has been confirmed as an assistant professor of Forest Products Business Management. Faculty searches are underway in Industrial Engineering, Wood Products Processing and Recreation. Undergraduate program enrolments have stabilised and decreased slightly as smaller intakes over the past two years work through the system. The review of professional B.S.F. programs by the Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board was completed and both the Forest Resources Management and the Forest Operations programs have been accredited to 2005. The B.S.F. curriculum review that was started by the Baskerville Task Force five years ago resulted in revised programs being submitted to Senate which has approved the overall plan and the details of the first two years of the new programs. In 1999/00 women comprised 33 per cent of the overall enrolment and almost 50 per cent of (he students in Natural Resources Conservation and Forest Science. Women made up 30 per cent of the B.S.F. and 16 per cent of the Wood Products Processing student enrolments. Self-reported First Nations students totalled 21 representing 14 Nations. This is an increase of four over the previous year and we are looking forward to expanding these numbers as we play an increasing role in capacity building for the First Nations. Close to 100 students are now enrolled in the Wood Products Processing program. This program continues to have 100 per cent placement of all students in co-op education positions in primary and secondary wood processing firms across Canada. The program underwent an independent external review during the year. A favourable report filed with Human Resources Development Canada has resulted in their release of endowment funding to the Centre of Excellence in Advanced Wood Products Processing Funding Society. This is a major compliment to all the faculty and industrial co-operators who have worked to successfully establish this program. We have had 23 UBC students travel on international exchange and internship programs this past year and have hosted 40 students from 12 countries. We also received a tour of 19 graduate level students and 3 faculty from Europe in September as part of the Canada-European Union exchange program Human Dimensions in 21s' Century Forestry. These programs are an example of the implementation of the internationalisation objectives of TREK 2000. Graduate student enrolment was 217 last year. Of the 83 Ph.D. students, 26 per cent are women while 35 per cent of the Masters students are women. W e have 34 countries represented by our 88 international graduate students with 17 coming from the United States of America and 14 from the People's Republic of China. The graduate diploma programs offered by the Silviculture and Forest Engineering Institute of British Columbia received recognition this year with a Forest Renewal B.C. Award for Excellence in Education. The Institute of Forest Engineering component was additionally recognised by the Association of B.C. Professional Foresters' Forest Engineering Award of Excellence. Although overall funding for research has declined from within the province, faculty have been successful in obtaining additional federal support from NSERC/SSHRC including (he new Industry/ NSERC-SSHRC/CFS partnership program. A wide range of sponsored research is detailed on page 34-38. Of special note is an innovative interdisciplinary series of grants that have been awarded to faculty to test new and innovative forestry practices in the Arrow District Innovative Forest Practices Agreement (IFPA). No CFI grants were received this year but faculty are applying for future support in this continuing federal and provincial research support program. It was my pleasure to participate in a visit to Ottawa with President Piper, senior administrators and deans in March to express our appreciation for continued federal support through (he CFI program and the recently announced 21 st Century Chair program. We have continued to strengthen our relationships with donor and alumni giving. Forestry has one of the highest alumni participation rates of all faculties on campus. W e greatly appreciate this continuing support.  2  UBC Faculty  of  Forestry  Our two research forests continue to provide us with high quality teaching, research and demonstration areas. Each forest hosts a field school during the year. The interface with the communities on our forest edges has received special attention in Maple Ridge where an open space planning studio was conducted by Landscape Architecture students under the leadership of Dr. Stephen Sheppard. Results of these studies were presented to the Maple Ridge District Council and served to show the beneficial ways in which class exercises can be applied to real world challenges. Both research forests need to undertake infrastructure development. The Alex Fraser Research Forest is planning a new headquarters building that will be located on the Knife Creek Block. The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest celebrated 50 years of research and teaching in 1999. T h e original Loon Lake C a m p needs redevelopment as the structure of the old log cabins begins to crumble. W e would appreciate any help that readers might be able to give us with this undertaking. Society documents for the Aleza Lake Research Forest, situated 60 km east of Prince George, are in the final stages of approval. W e hope to join with U N B C this summer to obtain the special use permit from the Ministry of Forests so that we can start the development of educational and research activities in the area. Plans for 2000/2001 W e arc progressing in the development of our unit plans for each department and will have an overall Faculty plan by mid-summer. The following workshops and conferences are planned: •  "Advanced Training in Forest Gene Resource Management" a workshop at the Forest Sciences Centre, May 15-June 16, 2000, organized by Drs. N a m k o o n g , Aitken, El-Kassaby, Koshy, Ritland and Yanchuk.  •  "Streamlining Local-Level Information for Sustainable Forest Management'''' a conference being organised by Drs. John Innes and Gary Bull, to be held at U B C , August 28-30, 2000.  •  "Emerging Markets for Carbon and Other Environmental Services" a workshop sponsored by Forest Trends, the Faculty of Forestry and the Government of B.C., to be held on October 4, 2000, organized by Dr. Gary Bull.  •  "Global Vision for Forest 2050" a conference hosted by the Liu Centre for Global Issues and the Faculty of Forestry, being organised by Dr. Gary Bull, to be held at UBC, October 12-13, 2000.  •  "The Nature and Culture of Forests: Implications of Diversity for Sustainability, Trade and Certification" a symposium to be held at the Forest Sciences Centre, May 10-1 I, 2001, being organized by the Institute for European Studies at U B C in cooperation with the Faculty of Forestry.  •  "Forest Modelling for Ecosystem Management, Forest Certification, and Sustainable Management" to be held at UBC, August 12-18, 2001. Planning for this International Union of Forestry Research Organizations conference is underway by Drs. Valerie L e M a y and J.P. (Hamish) Kimmins.  T h e search for a new Dean continues. With a full complement of faculty we look forward to developing the Faculty's teaching and research capabilities and strengthening our interdisciplinary relationships with other units on campus. W e also look towards greater provincial, national and international participation so that the global position of British Columbia is better understood by those who manage our extensive public resources and those who express opinions on the way we should manage our forests. I thank all those who have supported the Faculty of Forestry over the past year and would be happy to receive any advicc that would improve the way we steward the resources entrusted to us.  John A. M c L e a n Acting Dean, Faculty of Forestry  1999 Annual  Report  3  T  HE Faculty of Forestry offers four-year degree programs in the following five areas:  design.

Students learn about the unique characteristics of each resource, their interactions, and the manipulation of forests to yield a variety of desirable products in the context of social and economic environments. The program prepares graduates for responsible careers in forest management as professional foresters. This program is also offered as a four-year International Forestry Specialization.  • Forest Operations - B.S.F. This major prepares the graduate for professional forestry responsibilities, with an 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.  • Natural Resources Conservation B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation) This multidisciplinary program provides students with a solid foundation in the natural and social sciences underlying management and conservation of natural resources, as well as an appreciation for the political and socioeconomic contexts which affect conservation strategics. Students develop a working knowledge of the tools and quantitative techniques used by resource planners. A notable feature of the program is the Integrated Field School offered in the fourth year which features integrated field and classroom instruction throughout the fall term.  P R O G R A M U P D A T E S IN 1999-00 •  The current Forest Resources Management and Forest Operations programs were accredited by the Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board to 2005.  •  Revisions to the Forest Resources Management program were approved by the Faculty of Forestry. Changes arc currently before UBC Senate for final approval.  •  Wood Products Processing filled 71 fourmonth placement sessions as part of the Cooperative Education program.  •  More than a dozen Forest Operations students have chosen to follow the course syllabus to work towards a Professional Engineer designation as part of their undergraduate degree.  • Forest Science - B.Sc. (Forestry) This degree 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 inlluence the establishment, growth, and development of trees and other forest resources. The core subjects include genetics, soils, weather and climate, tree form, tree function, ecology, entomology, pathology, silvics, silviculture, and fire science. This program is also offered as a four-year International Forestry Specialization.  • The Natural Resources Conservation Career Services facility helped place over 20 students in 12 community outreach programs last year (www.forestry.ubc.ca/programs/webcontent/ conspg.html).  • Wood Products Processing B.Sc. (Wood Products Processing) This program provides students with a broad knowledge of the wood products industry, including wood manufacturing, business management, and marketing. State-of-the-art wood processing equipment used during laboratory exercises enables students to develop skills in technical processes and operations carried out in today's industry. Students may choose an area of concentration in business, primary processing, product development, or wood building and  4  UBC Faculty  of  Forestry  P L A N S FOR 2000-01 •  Implement changes to first year of the Forest Resources Management program.  •  Articulate the revised Forest Resources Management program with colleges and technical institutes in British Columbia.  •  Investigate the possibility of block transfer into the Natural Resources Conservation degree from B.C. colleges offering two-year Natural Resources diplomas.  • Total Enrolment For the first time in the past decade, total undergraduate enrolment decreased from the previous year. Our 1999/00 enrolment dipped to 553 students, the lowest it has been since 1995/96. However, new enrolment increased by 5 per cent. W e also welcomed 45 visiting and exchange students for the year.

Dr. Shawn Mansfield has joined the Department of Wood Science as an assistant professor. He obtained a B.Sc. (Hons.) in biology from Mount Allison University and a M.Sc. in microbiology from Dalhousie. After graduating from UBC with a Ph.D. in wood science, Shawn spent two years as a research scientist at the New Zealand Forest Research Institute. Shawn has returned "home" to UBC to help develop and teach in our new one-year non-thesis masters program in fibre and wood. His research interests focus on understanding how fibre morphology and chemistry/biochemistry influence wood, fibre and pulp properties. SMITH, Gregory Dr. Gregory Smith has joined the Department of Wood Science as an assistant professor. He is a graduate of UBC with a B.A.Sc. and M.A.Sc. in metals and materials engineering and a D.Sc.T. in polymer sciencc from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. Greg spent two years with MacMillan Bloedel Research in Vancouver working on adhesion issues, and one year with Forintek Canada Corp. working on blending dynamics for OSB. Greg will be teaching the polymer science of adhesives and coatings, the fundamentals of composite wood properties, and the processing of reconstituted wood composites. His research interests are focussed on understanding the processing-structureproperty relationships of wood composites.  Increased enrolment of undergraduate Wood Products Processing degree program to almost 100 students.  ACHIEVEMENTS AND  Through the efforts of the Centre for Advanced Wood Processing, 100 per cent of our eligible Wood Products Processing students received co-op placements in primary and secondary wood processing firms across Canada and internationally.  PLANS  Faculty members from the Fachhochschulc Rosenheim and the Berner Fachhochschulc continued to make a significant contribution to the design and delivery of the Wood Products Processing program. The Department of Wood Science was accepted as a full member in EU C O S T Action E l 5 "Advances in the Drying of Wood". This is the first time that a nonEuropean university has been accepted into a C O S T Action as a full member. Drs. Saddler and Breuil received NSERC strategic grants.  PLANS FOR 2000 01 •  Continue Faculty searches for Secondary Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering positions.  •  Continue to increase enrolment in the undergraduate Wood Products Processing program and continue to have 100 per cent placement in the co-op option.  •  Develop and integrate graduate courses in the Fibre and Wood and Wood Products Processing options.  •  Develop support for proposed graduate program in Wood Building Design and Construction.  1999 Annual  Report  17  Wood Science Department  FOREST SCIENCES DEPARTMENT John Barker  Bart van der Kamp Head  Sally Aitken  Peter Arcese  Fred Bunnell  Chris Chanway  Yousry El-Kassaby  Susan Glenn  Robert (Juy  Scott Hinch  J.P.

Dan Dr. Dan Moore (P.Geo.) has joined the Forest Resources Management Department as an associate professor and Forest Renewal BC Chair in Hydrology. His appointment is one-third Forest Resources Management and two-thirds Geography. Dan received his Ph.D. degree in physical geography from Canterbury University, New Zealand in 1984. He was an assistant professor at McGill University from 1985 to 1987, and then a consulting hydrologist for two years before joining Simon Fraser University. Dan will focus his research program on the effects of forest practices on hydrologic processes. For example, he is currently involved in a study of subsurface hydrology and stream temperature regime in the Stuart-Takla Fish-Forest Interaction Project. An overarching objective in Dan's research will be the translation of research results into models and guidelines appropriate for use by forest managers.

Resident Forester Malcolm Knapp Research Forest Maple Ridge E-mail: power® interchg.ubc.ca Phone: Fax:  (604)463-8148 (604)463-2712  HE Faculty of Forestry operates two Research Forests: the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest (MKRF) near Maple Ridge on the coast, and the Alex Fraser Research Forest (AFRF) near Williams Lake in the central interior of B.C. The mission of the Research Forests is to support the Faculty of Forestry in serving the people of B.C. through teaching and research. This is accomplished by hosting research from a wide variety of disciplines, in order to create teaching opportunities for students from UBC, other post-secondary institutions, and continuing education programs. The location of the forests, covering five biogeoclimatic zones and three tenure systems, offers a wide variety of research and education opportunities. The Research Forests host three field schools for UBC students: the fall field course for third year students at Alex Fraser Research Forest; a spring field course for fourth year students at Malcolm Knapp Research Forest; and sections of the conservation field course which are held on both forests. Facilities to house students at the Research Forests have been at or above capacity for several years during our recent peak in undergraduate enrolment.

Meanwhile, our extramural f u n d i n g has decreased since hitting a peak in 1996/97 and, at $8,168,000 for the past year, was down 8.5 per cent from the previous year. Extramural funding from the federal government and the private sector was down slightly in 1999/00, although the relative percentages that these funding sources represent did not change significantly.

Operating  budget,  extramural  funding  and research  activity  1983/84 -  1999/00 BREUIL, Colette  Funding f r o m provincial government sources decreased for the third year in a row and, at $3,858,000 for the past year, accounted for only 47.2 per cent of our total extramural funding (down f r o m 49.2 per cent in 1998/99 and 63.4 per cent in 1997/98). This decline was due mainly to a 4 6 per cent reduction in funding from the Ministry of Forests ( M o F ) , as well as to the absence of support f r o m the B.C. Knowledge Development Fund which had contributed $ 3 4 0 , 0 0 0 (3.8%) to the previous y e a r ' s figures. Our slightly increased funding f r o m Forest Renewal BC ( F R B C ) was due primarily to monies received via the Forest Genetics Council ($302,000) and the B C Advanced Systems Institute ($291,000). Funding from the federal government was down 7.4 per cent f r o m 1998/99 figures, mostly due to the absence of funding from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation that had accounted for $ 7 5 1 , 0 0 0 in 1998/99. Our N S E R C / S S H R C funding increased for the 1999/00 year, representing 23.3 per cent of our extramural funding, up from 13.8 per cent the previous year. Funding from industry, at $1,274,000, was down 2.8 per cent f r o m the previous year. In addition, we also received endowment funding of $1,192,000, up slightly f r o m our 1998/99 value of $ 1,063,000.

The j o b opportunities for students and graduates continue to rival those in other high technology industries.  • Continuing Education  T  HIS has been a year of consistent growth and  consolidation of the Centre for Advanced W o o d Processing. Dr. T h o m a s M a n e s s completed his term as founding director marking four years of unprecedented growth and development. Many research projects, grants and continuing education courses were initiated during these early years. In 1999, the focus was on planning, setting foundations and the successful fulfilment of requirements. T h e addition of a line of veneering and finishing equipment completes the Advanced W o o d Processing Laboratory. This year was also highlighted by the PriccwaterhouseCoopers p e r f o r m a n c e audit that demonstrated the success of the Centre in meeting or exceeding many of the preset goals. The Centre also continues to be a strong Faculty link to the wood products industry. Centre faculty and staff participated in conferences and attended industry meetings across Canada and the U.S. as well as hosted visits by industry delegations. Strong industry contact continues to be a top priority. This year we mailed the third issue of our newsletter C A W P N E W S to over 5 0 0 0 recipients. This is the first of three newsletters that will be sent every year to keep industry informed on newly developed programs and services. Close lies also continue with the C e n t r e ' s founding industry advisory board the National Education Initiative, the Fachhochschulc Rosenheim in G e r m a n y and the Berner Fachhochschulc in Switzerland. T h e s e organizations provide support, technical expertise and invaluable guidance.  • Education Programs Support of the Department of W o o d Science W o o d Products Processing program and management of the Cooperative Education option continue with prominence. Staff members with extensive experience provide faculty with wood industry knowledge and perspective. The Practical W o o d w o r k i n g c o u r s e for new undergraduate students and many new industry-relevant handson laboratories were developed and taught. Student placements in the Cooperative Education program increased to 6 6 and again, achieved a 100 per cent placement rate. Although, the  Our involvement in industry driven workshops, conferences and other continuing education programs continued to increase. In 1999, we offered 26 programs across Canada. One new program, the International C o n f e r e n c e on Global Markets for Value-Added W o o d Products, focussed on gaining marketing advantages and access. One hundred and thirty delegates attended this event in Halifax. W e also o f f e r e d new courses in Marketing, European Cabinet Making and Veneering. The C e n t r e ' s interactive web site was redeveloped to reach out to industry across Canada. Up-to-date information on current programs and highlights f r o m previous courses are now available on-line.

In 1999, a third company was added to the pilot quality certification program. A new industry driven project was also initiated to examine material and enterprise resource planning systems appropriate for the wood industry. Phase I of the wood product development and testing laboratory was completed this year. This laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for the testing of finishes and coatings such as lacquers.

With this goal in mind, we have supported a number of new and ongoing programs which assist the Faculty of Forestry in maintaining and enhancing its profile internationally. Some of last year's highlights are noted below. We encourage organizations and institutions to contact us. Willi our partners we can improve research and promote an understanding of international forestry issues.  • International Exchange and Internships  SCHINNERL, Sandra B.Comm. Associate Director International Forestry Programs Phone: (604)822-9627 Fax: (604)822-8645 E-mail: sandra@interchg.ubc.ca  This past year, 23 UBC Forestry students went on exchange and the Faculty hosted 40 students from partner universities from the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Germany, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy. The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest also hosted a number of international students throughout the year and is a major supporter of international programs for the Faculty.  • New Canada-European Union Student Mobility Consortium The Faculty of Forestry won a grant to establish a Canada-European Consortium of Forestry Universities that promotes the mobility of students to consortium partner institutions. Members include four Canadian universities: University of British Columbia, University of Toronto, University of Quebec, and the University of New Brunswick. It also includes ten European partners including the University of Aberdeen, Albert-Ludwig University of Freiburg, Universitaire dc Gembloux, University of Helsinki, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, University of Agricultural Sciences, Vienna, Wageningen Agricultural University and the University of Wales. The major objective of the program is to promote student mobility at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. This is done through student exchange, training sessions, short-term tours, research visits and study visits. The grant will continue to the end of 2001. As part of this consortium we have welcomed 20 students to the Faculty and have sent seven students from U B C to partner schools. In addition wc hosted 19 students and three faculty from Europe to take part in a tour of British Columbia in September 1999. Wc look forward to participating in more coordinated tours with the consortium in the future.  50  UBC Faculty  of  Forestry  Sandra Schinnerl Associate Director  • International Faculty Research and Projects Many of our facility were involved in international research initiatives, conference coordination, and symposia. Some highlights include: • Ongoing interdisciplinary research projects with the Winter Research Institute-Fuyusoken in Hokkaido, Japan. Publications in progress include articles on bioregionalism and wood construction in Japan. (Research conducted by David Cohen and Ray Cole). • "Streamlining Local-Level Information for Sustainable Forest Management, " a conference being organized by Gary Bull and John Innes, to be held at UBC, August 28-30, 2000. See the web site: www.forestry.ubc.ca/ workshop/index.htm for details. • Planning has begun on the International Union of Forestry Research Organizations conference, "Forest Modelling for Ecosystem Management, Forest Certification, and Sustainable Management, " which will be held at U B C August 12-18, 2001. Valerie LeMay and J.P. (Hamish) Kimmins will be chairing the conference. • A course entitled "Advanced Training in Forest Gene Resource Management, " chaired by Gene Namkoong, will be held at the Forest Sciences Centre, May I5-June 16, 2000. Visit the web site genetics.forestry.ubc.ca/ifi for more information.  • International Forestry Specialization The international forestry specialization, available in the Forest Management and Forest Science undergraduate programs, allows students to fulfil core requirements of the main program while specializing in a geographic region in terms of forest issues and science. Students take two years of language courses and participate in an international internship or exchange as part of this option. The objective is to educate students on international forestry issues and better understand Canada's role in the international forestry arena.  A C H I E V E M E N T S IN 1 9 9 9 - 0 0  Madeleine M a c l v o r Coordinator  T  HE Faculty's First Nations initiatives are directed towards four areas of activity. They include:  •  Increased enrolment of First Nations students (from 17 to 21).  •  Undertook extensive recruiting activities in classrooms, at career fairs and in communities throughout B.C.  •  Developed a searchable data base of over 200 First Nations forestry references.  •  Co-sponsored, with the National Aboriginal Forestry Association, a workshop on Aboriginal Professional Development in the Forest Sector. The workshop brought together 50 aboriginal foresters, forest technicians, students and academics to generate ideas for increasing aboriginal enrolment in natural resources studies.  •  Incorporated CONS 370 (Perspectives on First Nations and Forest Lands) as a core course in the B.S.F. curriculum. Information on this course is now available on the web at http://www.arts.ubc.ca/anso/tindall/cons370/.  1. Increasing the participation of First Nations students in the Faculty. 2. Providing support services to First Nations students. 3. Incorporating First Nations perspectives and issues within the Forestry curriculum. 4. Creating awareness within the University and the wider community about First Nations perspectives and issues in Forestry. In the past academic year, there were 21 selfidentified First Nations students within the Faculty, representing 2.7 per cent of the student body. Of these, 12 students were enrolled in Forest Resources Management, one in Forest Operations, three in Natural Resources Conservation, and two in Wood Products Processing. Three students were studying at the Masters level, and an indigenous person from Mexico was enrolled in a Ph.D. program. Of the 21 First Nations students in the Faculty, 7 are female and 14 arc male. Ages ranged from 20 to 51 years, with the average age being 28 years.  Nuxalk Ojibway Okanagan S litis wap Sto:lo Tahltan Wet'suwet'en  Three undergraduate students and one Masters student arc on track for spring graduation. There is an increasing interest on the part of First Nations communities to work with the Faculty of Forestry to meet community research and economic development needs. It is becoming increasingly apparent that meeting these needs requires the skills of an academic position specializing in First Nations issues.  PROGRAMS  •  Included participation of First Nations graduate student and community representatives in seven undergraduate and one graduate course.  •  Hired a part-time First Nations student advisor.  PLANS FOR 2 0 0 0 - 0 1 •  Fill the Coordinator, First Nations Forestry Programs position left vacant by the departure of Madeleine Maclvor to a new position as associate director of the First Nations House of Learning.  •  Increase the enrolment of First Nations students.  •  Develop recruitment materials.  •  Update the First Nations Forestry Programs web site to include the First Nations forestry reference data base.  •  Continue to work with Nicola Valley Institute of Technology to develop a laddering process to forestry programs at UBC.  •  Explore ways to meet the need for an academic position that focuses on First Nations resource issues.

FACULTY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM  T o d a y , the management of our forests e n c o m p a s s e s economic, environmental, social and cultural considerations. Forest conservation, forest management and wood processing require specialized levels of knowledge. At no time has there been a greater need to learn more about our forests, to protect some areas, to enhance the growth and yield of other forested areas, and to continue building a knowledgebased forest sector. Continued financial support from individuals and corporate donations helps us find innovative and effective solutions to forest issues and prepare our students for careers in forestry and forest-related professions.  • Designated Areas of Support GRIFFIOEN, Cheryl Development Officer Faculty Development Program Phone: (604)822-8716 Fax: (604)822-8645 E-mail: cgriff@interchg.ubc.ca  T h e Faculty of Forestry received close to seven hundred gifts from donors in the past year.

MacMillan Family Fund continues to provide essential support for Conservation 451, a course that is an integral part of the Natural Resources Conservation program. This course integrates natural sciences, social sciences, and management issues related to conservation of natural resources. The course consists of three modules each focussing on an ecosystem in B.C. The course was organised by Georgic Harrison in collaboration with Drs. Michael Feller, Susan Glenn, Scott Hinch and Kathy Martin. The H.R. MacMillan Family Fund is instrumental to the success of Conservation 45 I by providing funds to bring guest lecturers to this innovative new course. The inclusion of these participants benefits the course by exposing students to the breadth of views that characterise resource issues in B.C. The H.R. MacMillan Family Fund enables Conservation 451 to invite multiple speakers to field sites so that students learn practical skills and have the opportunity to apply textbook theories in real world situations. In addition to the academic benefits, the inclusion of outside professionals enables students to increase their sense of professionalism and provides the opportunity for students to meet potential employers. This year, students and faculty had the opportunity to interact with over 30 invited speakers in classroom and field activities. These speakers ranged from academics from other institutions, workers and managers from resource-based industries, First Nations groups, government officials and a range of non-government organisations.  persistence  Alistair Bath Memorial University, St. John's, Newfoundland • Human dimensions research in conservation biology.  1999 Annual  Report  53  STUDENTS FOR FORESTRY AWARENESS • Public Lecture Series Students for Forestry Awareness (SFA) is an independent, student organization that has been in existence at UBC for over ten years.
