With the world’s economy continuing in reasonable shape, concern about the environment and the impacts of climate change remain at the top of most nations’ political agendas. The mountain pine beetle epidemic that is devastating much of BC’s lodgepole pine forests continues unabated, leaving significant biological, economic and undoubtedly social changes in its wake. The high cost of oil and other forms of fossil energy continue to stimulate interest in renewable sources of energy, with Canada and BC’s significant biomass resources catalyzing research, development and demonstration in bioenergy options. Several of our staff and faculty were, and continue to be, heavily involved in the Stanley Park Task Force that is looking at how to deal with the significant wind damage encountered by Vancouver’s iconic park. Another sign that “one in a hundred year events” seem to be occurring more frequently, symptomatic of climate change. As is detailed in this annual report, the Faculty of Forestry is well positioned to capitalize and contribute to society’s concerns about the environment, broadly defined, and our education and research programs have and will be major contributors to the debate and actions that must be taken. As well as encountering changes in our global environment, the academic “environment” also continues to evolve with UBC being fortunate to recruit its 12th President, Professor Stephen Toope, who has already made his mark on the functioning, plans and hopes of UBC. He challenges us all to ensure that UBC continues to be one of the most creative and influential universities in North America and to continue our march up the ranks of the very best universities in the world. The past 9-12 months have seen increased debate and consideration of broader education opportunities across UBC focused on the environment. With colleagues from around the UBC campus, and the Faculty of Land and Food Systems in particular, we have been discussing and developing new synergies which we hope will provide the catalyst for new and innovative undergraduate and graduate programs focused on the environment. By increasing flexibility in our undergraduate programs, and working with the many other units on campus who offer existing environmental courses both from arts and science perspectives, we hope to attract increasing numbers of outstanding, motivated, undergraduates, both from our region and from across the globe. From these new undergraduate programs we also hope to further enhance opportunities in research and graduate studies. During the past year we have increased our DEAN’S MESSAGE Faculty of Forestry Activities, 1996/97 – 2006/07 96/97 97/98 98/99 99/00 00/01 01/02 02/03 03/04 04/05 05/06 06/07 Undergraduate enrolment1 591 621 627 553 508 447 441 448 453 454 467 Distance education (fte) 36 37 29 21 22 19 14 9 9 10 10 Graduate enrolment 201 209 206 217 231 202 163 170 197 242 252 Teaching Evaluation Index2 2.24 2.31 2.27 2.15 2.19 2.05 1.88 1.90 1.99 1.89 2.00 GPOB ($’000)3 4,798 4,741 4,865 4,919 5,491 5,884 6,124 6,219 6,332 6,398 6,631 GPOB/WFTE4 2,129 1,989 2,048 2,195 2,479 3,024 3,487 3,508 3,315 2,976 3,003 Extramural funding ($’000)5 10,409 9,089 8,929 8,168 8,635 8,357 11,370 11,379 10,427 12,101 11,699 Endowment income ($’000) 975 1,011 1,063 1,192 1,330 1,342 2,031 1,981 1,706 1,698 1,575 Extramural funding/GPOB  faculty member ($’000) 289 265 255 233 225 214 274 295 260 304 286 1 Headcount unless otherwise noted. 2 Average numerical score of several criteria used by students to assess teaching performance of Faculty members.  1 = Excellent; 2 = Very Good; 3 = Good; 4 = Fair; 5 = Poor; 6 = Very Poor. 3 GPOB = base recurring budget. 4 WFTE calculated as 2  (undergraduate + extrasessional + diploma/3) + 4  masters + 6  Ph.D. students. 5 Research + special purpose + endowment (until 1996/97, shown separately after this). 2 UBC Faculty of Forestry undergraduate enrolment by 13 for a total of 467 students. We increased our focus on raising the profile of our programs with post-secondary transfer students and strong high school students. We introduced the guaranteed admissions concept and increased the entrance average for the Forest Sciences and Natural Resources Conservation programs. Budget restrictions have forced us to place less emphasis on off-campus recruiting and greater emphasis on academic advising and recruiting on-campus. We remained an attractive location for visiting and exchange students from elsewhere in Canada and the world. The number of international students enrolled in our programs has also continued to increase. In the past year our international enrolment increased from 43 to 48 students. We are well on the way to reaching the university’s target of 15% international enrolment. Our undergraduate statistics are summarized on pages 6-9. Forestry graduate student enrolment is at the highest level in our history for the second year in a row. Our total enrolment in 2006/07 was 252 students with 49% of these enrolled in doctoral degrees. We continue to attract excellent graduate students from all around the world. Last year, 48% of our graduate students were from countries other than Canada, and we have students from 38 different counties, making Forestry the most culturally diverse graduate program on campus.  Our graduate student statistics are summarized on pages 10-13. International forestry activities have continued to evolve and grow (pages 14-15). During the year five students from the Faculty participated in exchange programs and we hosted seven international exchange/visiting students from 14 different universities in nine countries. We also welcomed 29 international visiting faculty members and 21 international post- doctoral visitors from over 20 countries. For more than 13 years we have been developing and implementing a First Nations strategy for the Faculty. In November of 2006 our First Nations Council of Advisors, faculty and staff completed a new plan, titled “Furthering Aboriginal forestry: A strategic plan for 2007-2010”. Our efforts in the next year will focus on funding and implementing this new plan. Unfortunately, Warren Fortier, our coordinator of Aboriginal initiatives left at the end of the year when he returned home to Savona. Pages 16 and 17 provide a highlight of our First Nations forestry achievements and plans. Faculty renewal in 2006/07 consisted of one retirement and no new hires. Dr. Bart van der Kamp retired as professor of forest pathology after 38 years of service to the Faculty. Bart also served as head of the Forest Sciences department from 1998 to 2005. Dr. Bruce Larson, formerly of the Forest Sciences department, was appointed as head of the Forest Resources Management department for a five year term beginning July, 2006. Also in July, Dr. Cindy Prescott was appointed as Associate Dean for Graduate Education in the Faculty of Graduate Studies at UBC. Cindy has served as our Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Research for the past three years and will continue on in this role. More recently the wider university community has benefited from her talents and expertise as she works with the Graduate Advisors of other Faculties to bring consistency to the UBC graduate experience. Dr. Paul McFarlane completed his five year term as head of the department of Wood Science and was reappointed for a second term. Dr. Phil Evans completed his five year term as director of the Centre for Wood Products Processing (CAWP) at the end of 2006. Dr. Evans’ provided excellent leadership of CAWP and the Centre continues to be well positioned to meet the ongoing needs of Canada’s, and the worlds, wood processing sector. In January of 2007, CAWP offered the first full version of the new Industrial Wood Finishing Certificate and received positive feedback from participants for its blend of flexible online study and an intensive face-to-face practical session. Pages 38 and 39 provide further information on the Centre’s achievements and plans. Our Centre for Applied Conservation Research (CACR) maintained a vigorous research, education and outreach role. The Centre’s spring symposia brought together a panel of ecologists and economists to discuss the impact of the current mountain pine beetle policies on our forests. Pages 40-41 provide highlights of CACR’s events and research activities during the past year. Over the past year, thirty new research projects were initiated at our three Research Forests and the Malcolm Knapp Forest hosted the opening of the new $2.5 million Walter C. Koerner Forestry Centre at Loon Lake. Pages 42 and 43 provide a full account of the Forests’ activities. Extramural support of our faculty members’ research dropped slightly this past year for a total of $11.7 million (down by 3.3%). Federal funding represented 45.6% of our total funds received. Provincial funding increased by almost twenty percent, primarily as a result of a 3-fold increase in projects funded by the FIA – Forest Sciences Program (nearly $2.5 million). Private industry support for research DEAN’S MESSAGE 2006 Annual Report 3 contributed another $1.45 million in 50 projects. International research support was down to $449, 497 or 3.8% of research funding. A listing of individual faculty member research projects and their associated research publications for the past year begins on page 49 of this report. Our development program saw good progress over the year with the completion of construction projects at Loon Lake (Walter C. Koerner Centre opened on October 26, 2006), the continued funding for the CAWP industry program, additional funding towards our new chair in Wood Building Design and Construction and the establishment of several new student awards. Pages 70-71 carry the highlights of our development and alumni activities. We have continued to devote considerable effort towards our communication and outreach initiatives. During the year we hosted the Schaffer Lecture in Forest Sciences (see page 31), the second year of a Distinguished Lecture Series through our BC Forum on Forest Economics and Policy (page 25), and the Centre for Applied Conservation Research’s spring symposium (page 40). We also continued a very successful lunch time research talk series by our own faculty members, further expanded the content of Branch Lines, our Faculty newsletter, and made some major improvements to our website. PlANS FoR 2007/08 There continue to be significant budget challenges with the university’s general purpose operating funds, and consequent challenges for us to weather the storm without having to resort to drastic actions. During the coming year UBC will be working its way through an “academic planning process” which will enable strategic decision making linked to a three year sustainable budget model for the university. The quality of our faculty, graduate students/ post docs and overall research continues to be world class and several of our undergraduate programs are award winning and among the healthiest in North America. However, our overall undergraduate numbers continue to be a challenge. We plan to be fully engaged in UBC’s academic planning process to ensure that the criteria used in the allocation of resources reflect the important contribution that the Faculty makes to the university’s provincial and global goals and aspirations. During the year, with financial support from the federal government, the Canadian national forest products related research organizations, PAPRICAN, Forintek and Feric were brought together with the Canadian Forest Service based Fiber Institute to form FP Innovations, one of the world’s largest forest products R&D groups. We are fortunate that all three of the FP Innovations western labs are based on the UBC campus and we are in the process of developing an MOU between our two organizations (UBC/FP Innovations) to make better use of the tremendous synergies that are readily apparent. As well as building on the good rapport that already exists through mechanisms such as joint projects, Adjunct Professors, etc, we hope to work together on “transformative technology” areas such as nanotechnology/materials science and biorefinery/bioenergy opportunities which will enhance UBC’s reputation as a world class cluster of innovation in the forest based sector. Provided the world’s economy remains robust, there is every expectation that the current high level of interest in the local/global environment, and the effects of climate change on the environment, will continue unabated. As a Faculty, we will continue to be strong advocates of UBC’s process to better coordinate its many resources in the environment, broadly defined. We plan to offer undergraduate and graduate courses that highlight the interconnectedness of much of UBC’s expertise in this area while continuing to offer the specialized degrees that are needed by professions such as forestry (RPF) and biology (RPBio). Canada and BC are recognized around the world because of our enviable social, biological and economic environment. The Faculty can be a major player in the delivery of educational and R&D programs that help define UBC as a world leader in sustainability and environmental stewardship while ensuing that our “students become exceptional global citizens, promote the values of a civil and sustainable society and conduct outstanding research to serve the people of British Columbia, Canada and the world”.

Director, Forest Resources Management Major   www.forestry.ubc.ca/programs/ undergrad.html UNDER- GRADUATE STUDENTS PROGRAMS OF STUDY THE FACULTY OF FORESTRY offers four-year degree programs in the following areas:  Forest Sciences B.Sc. (Forest Sciences) This challenging yet flexible program is designed to develop professionals who understand the dynamics of and can conduct research in forested ecosystems, and are well prepared for graduate studies in related areas. Students in the Forest Sciences program gain a strong foundation in the basic biological and environmental sciences, with emphasis on the interacting components and functions of forests. Core topics include genetics, soil science, weather and climate, tree form and function, ecology, silviculture, biodiversity and research methods. In the third and fourth years of study, students specialize in an area of particular interest to them. Possible specializations include but are not limited to forest ecology, physiology, forest soils, forest genetics, forest pathology, forest entomology, fire science, and aquatic sciences. This program is also offered as a four-year International Forestry Specialization. Contact: Sally Aitken 604–822–6020 sally.aitken@ubc.ca Natural Resources Conservation B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation) Major in Science and Management 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 strategies. Students develop a working knowledge of the tools and quantitative techniques used by resource planners. A notable feature of the program is the field school offered in the fourth year which features integrated field and classroom instruction throughout the fall term. Major in Global Perspectives Commencing in September 2007, two majors in the B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation) program will be offered. The original program will be termed ‘NRC - Major in Science and Management’. A new stream termed ‘NRC - Major in Global Perspectives’ will have a similar first two years to the other major, but will involve a broader array of resource systems and globalization courses, international study, and greater elective freedom. Contact: Scott Hinch 604–822–9377 scott.hinch@ubc.ca   Wood Products Processing B.Sc. (Wood Products Processing) This award-winning program is a fusion of science, engineering and business that prepares graduates for careers in the wood products sector and related fields. Students gain a solid understanding of wood as they explore business and advanced manufacturing operations. They can also choose to complement their science degree with a Minor in Commerce. Co- op is another exciting option that integrates career- related experience into their academic studies. Contact: Simon Ellis 604–822–3551 simon.ellis@ubc.ca Bachelor of Science in Forestry B.S.F. Major in Forest Operations This B.S.F. 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. A Minor in Commerce is an option for qualified students. Contact: Dennis Bendickson 604–822–5932 dennis.bendickson@ubc.ca Major in Forest Resources Management This B.S.F. major focuses on the multidisciplinary aspects of forest resources and the management of forested ecosystems for such products as timber, grazing, wildlife, recreation, aesthetics, and water. 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 ecological, social and economic objectives. The program prepares graduates for responsible careers as professional foresters. This program is also offered as a four-year International Forestry Specialization.

Co-op Education Coordinator Forestry Programs 604–827–5196 geoff.anderson@ubc.ca CO-OP PROGRAMS COOPERATIVE EDUCATION is a three-way partnership between employers, students and the university. This partnership provides an opportunity for students to gain practical work experience, related to their program of study, by alternating academic terms with paid work terms. Graduates of a co-op program are well prepared, academically and professionally, for their future careers. Participating employers have access to an excellent staffing resource for peak periods or special projects as well as the opportunity to recruit, train and assess potential future employees. Co-op students are available for four or eight month work terms commencing each year in January, May and September. Over the course of their programs, students complete eight academic terms and five work terms to meet their co-op degree requirements. Employers interested in hiring a co-op student should contact one of our cooperative education coordinators. AChIEvEMENtS IN 2006 – 07 Forestry Programs Co-op students successfully completed their • work terms at a variety of employer hosts; including consultants, crown corporations, government (federal, provincial, regional, US state), industry and non-governmental organizations. Work terms were completed in British • Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, the United States (California) and New Zealand. International co-op work terms were completed • with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and the New Zealand Department of Conservation. The number of four-month co-op work terms • that were successfully completed increased by 20% over 2005-06. Nearly 50% of organizations that hired co-op • students in 2006-07 were first time employers. The distribution of co-op work terms by • geographical location was as follows: 26% - Lower Mainland of British Columbia; 22% - Vancouver Island; 30% - other locations in British Columbia; 11% - Canada outside of British Columbia; and 11% - internationally. The 5th Annual Forestry Careers Day was held • in November 2006 bringing students together with organizations representing conservation, government, industry, professional associations and sustainability.   Wood Products Processing Program Work terms were completed in British Columbia, • Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, and New Brunswick. Fifty four-month co-op work terms were • completed successfully. Twenty-four percent of companies that hired co-• op students in 2006-07 were first time employers. The inaugural edition of the Co-op Resume • Book listing co-op students and graduates was distributed to employers at the winter Co-op Presentation Evening. An on-line version is also available to facilitate employers’ recruitment activities. Attendance at the semi-annual Co-op Presentation • Evening continued to increase reflecting the strong interest and support employers have in hiring co- op students and graduates. Celebrated the 10th anniversary of co-op and • successful completion of more than 500 work terms within the wood products sector. PlANS FoR 2007 – 08 Continue to include employer participation in • co-op students’ career development activities. In line with Trek 2010, further the development • of the international component of co-op by increasing the number of international co-op work term opportunities and broadening the geographical scope of the locations. Update co-op website to ensure that it continues • to serve as a recruitment tool and information source for current and prospective co-op students and employers.

Director, Student Services 604–822–3547 candace.parsons@ubc.ca ATTRACTING STRONG undergraduate students remains a priority for the Student Services team and the Recruitment and Retention Committee, chaired by Candace Parsons. This year, we increased our focus on raising the profile of our programs with post-secondary transfer students and strong high school students. We introduced the Guaranteed Admission concept, and increased the entrance average for the Forest Sciences and Natural Resources Conservation programs to attract strong applicants for 2007/08. We continued to actively promote our programs across UBC campus engaging current students as ambassadors for the Faculty. The year saw some organizational changes due to budget constraints. Student Services now places greater emphasis on academic advising and recruiting on-campus. Lesley Fettes focuses on advising domestic students, and Chiara Longhi is responsible for recruiting and advising our international students. Joanna Mackie promotes the Wood Products Processing program and liaises closely with prospective students. The new UBC president’s emerging vision provides us with the opportunity to reflect on our priorities and review our approach to undergraduate recruitment.

This increase is a consequence of the higher secondary school entrance standards we have adopted in the past few years, which have resulted in higher retention rates (fewer failures). We remain an attractive location for undergraduate visiting and exchange students from elsewhere in Canada and the world. This year we hosted 29 of these students. In addition, the number of international students enrolled in our degree programs continues to increase. This year we had 48 such students, up from 43 the previous year. We hope to be one of the first units on campus to meet the university’s target of having 15% of the undergraduate student body as international students. The following graph shows the distribution of undergraduate students by year of study. The percentage of female students in our undergraduate programs continues to increase, and is now about 41 percent, up two percent from the previous year.

Forty-eight percent of our graduate students are from countries other than Canada, and we have students from 38 different countries, making Forestry the most culturally- diverse graduate program on campus. We celebrate this diversity in many of our social activities and have introduced a new process by which incoming students are matched with current students from the same country or region, who help the new students make a smooth transition to life in Vancouver and at UBC. Activities The Forestry Graduate Student Association (FGSA) organized a welcome back barbeque, wine and cheese social, and monthly socials with themes that included a pub quiz, a musical ‘coffee house’ and English country dancing. The FGSA executives were Alex Plattner, Azadeh Faghihi, Shannon Daradick, and Hannah Buschhaus. Students presented their research at the Faculty’s Celebrate Research Poster Night and awards for outstanding posters were presented to Sylvia Wood, Kimberly Hruska, Babita Bains and Alyson McHugh. Anne-Helene Mathey (Ph.D. with J. Innes and E. Krcmar), was awarded the prize for best Ph.D. thesis. Wellington Spetic received the Graduate Teaching Assistant Award.

In 2006 the Faculty review team commented that the international activities of the Faculty “will bring enhanced and significant recognition to the university over time”. There are ongoing attempts to increase the number of international students that wish to spend time in the Faculty, and we continue to strive to improve our teaching by attempting to have international content included where appropriate within courses. Our faculty members are involved in a wide range of international activities, but we still need to find innovative ways to fund formal and more meaningful research collaborations with other institutions around the world. International Activities The Faculty continues to work on its international activities and linkages. Our international extramural funding sources in 2006-2007 saw a drop of 16% (4.4% to 3.8% of all faculty extramural funding sources). The number of projects funded through international sources decreased from 11 projects to 7 projects. We are currently seeking ways to change this, such that the many and diverse opportunities available become more attractive for researchers in the Faculty. The Faculty welcomed over 100 international visiting researchers from 24 countries last year, contributing to our aims for greater internationalization of the Faculty. Our faculty members not only welcomed fellow researchers from around the world, but also played an active role in international research activities. Last year, 22 of our faculty members participated in 60 international committees, as well as 22 faculty presenting 62 papers outside of Canada. Student Recruitment and Exchange Our student exchange program continues to be an option for students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Students can select from 22 institutions in 13 countries. In the 2006-07 academic year, we had students who went to Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, United Kingdom and Malaysia. We hosted 29 international exchange/visiting students who visited us from 14 different universities in nine different countries including Australia, Denmark, Finland, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. With 9 students going on exchange from the Faculty, and 29 incoming exchange students, there continues to be a marked imbalance in our program. This is an issue that we are attempting to deal with, but which will require substantial modification to our current degree programs. The Go Global office, the former Exchange office, with the support of the individual faculties, has successfully expanded our program to include international work placements and internships as another option for students who wish to gain more international experience. We continued our concerted efforts to make international students more aware of programs within the Faculty of Forestry through participation in international recruitment activities, including recruitment fairs throughout the Pacific Northwest and Idaho, with plans to expand to Europe and Asia if funding can be obtained. The effort appears to have been successful, and the number of applications from international students is increasing. The TRANSFOR program (Transatlantic Education for Globally Sustainable Forests) continues to increase student mobility between the European Union and Canada. We hosted 9 students during the summer for the Canadian field course. We are grateful to Dr. Bruce Larson for playing a major role in implementing this agreement. Links with China We continue to develop strong links with universities and research institutions within China. The proposed 2+2 program with Nanjing Forestry University was approved by the UBC Senate and is now in an implementation phase. In this program, Chinese students will spend the first two years of their degree program in Nanjing and will then transfer to the Faculty of Forestry at UBC for their third and fourth years. During a trial period, the number of students is being restricted to ten in our Forest Operations and our Forest Resources Management programs but, if successful, we anticipate expanding the number of students and also including other Chinese forestry universities. In 2004 and 2006, cooperation agreements were signed between the University of British Columbia and Nanjing Forestry University, Tongji University (Shanghai), South-Central Forestry University (Changsha), Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University (Fuzhou) and the State Forestry Administration Staff Management College (Beijing). Over the last year, cooperation agreements have been signed between the UBC Faculty of Forestry and Jiangxi Agriculture University (Nanchang), Southwest Forestry College (Kunming), the Academy of Forest Inventory and Planning (State Forestry Administration – Beijing), the Chinese Academy of Forestry (Beijing), and the Fujian Soil and Water Conservation Service (Fuzhou). In addition 2006 Annual Report 15 to these institutions, we have long-standing agreements with Beijing Forestry University and the Northeast Forestry University in Harbin, and we have started negotiation with the Tibet Agriculture and Animal Husbandry College over possible cooperation. In cooperation with the International Union of Forest Research Organizations and the Chinese Academy of Forestry, we will be organizing a symposium on “Challenges and Opportunities of Forest Research in the Policy-Making Process” in May 2007 in Beijing. Of the 15 presenters from around the world, two will be from the UBC Faculty of Forestry (Yousry El-Kassaby and John Innes). other agreements While we have been focusing on links with China, we have also been looking at the possibility of developing links with universities elsewhere. For example, we have recently signed a cooperation agreement with the Federal University of Jequitinhonha and Mucuri Valleys, Brazil. This agreement represents a departure from established practice. Instead of trying to negotiate an agreement with one of the large urban universities in Brazil, we have deliberately encouraged links with this smaller regional university as it is located in an impoverished rural area of Brazil, and we feel that we can make a significant contribution by helping the university meet some its social aims, including the encouragement of rural development and the reduction of poverty. We are currently working with the university to examine ways in which we can best achieve this aim. INTERNATIONAL FORESTRY 16 UBC Faculty of Forestry FIRST NATIONS FORESTRY FOR MORE THAN 13 years, the Faculty has been developing and implementing its First Nations strategy. Starting with recognition of the increasing importance of British Columbia’s First Nations in the forest sector, the strategy is expanding to include the importance of indigenous peoples in all aspects of ecosystem management, including conservation policy, land use planning, and park co-management. Today, in British Columbia, the need for First Nations involvement in forested land activities has never been more evident. In November 2004, the Canadian Supreme Court ruled in the Haida and Taku cases that First Nations must be consulted at a strategic level in forestry management. In spite of its view, the Court issued no injunction, and in late May, 2005, the Haida Nation, along with non-Haida community members, blockaded forest operations on Haida Gwaii in protest of actions they felt did not adequately address the public concerns or Aboriginal rights on the island. These and other events contributed to Premier Campbell’s decision to enter into a “New Relationship” with First Nations in BC. Leaders of the First Nations Summit and the Union of BC Indian Chiefs agreed to work on developing the New Relationship. A New Relationship document described the new BC Government’s intent to establish new legislation and policy affecting First Nations rights and access to traditional territories. Although the extent of the practical effect of the New Relationship remains to be determined, First Nations are gaining greater access to forest resources through Forest and Range Agreements, the new Forest and Range Opportunities, and other Interim Measures Agreements. Although many of the tenures are non-replaceable or have other drawbacks, progress appears to be occurring. The Forest Sciences Board, for instance, has increased its support for research desired by First Nations. The challenge remains to increase the number of First Nation Registered Professional Foresters and land managers. The UBC Faculty of Forestry wishes to provide assistance to First Nations and the wider forest community in order to meet these challenges and opportunities through its First Nations strategy. Below is an abbreviated list of achievements over the past year. They are a reflection of strategies and efforts employed to maintain established relationships while fostering new ones.  AChIEvEMENtS IN 2006 – 07 With financial support from the Ministry of • Forests and Range, the First Nations Council of Advisors and the Faculty were able to review and revise the First Nations strategy, completing the following documents: “Detailed Achievements Report” on 2001- – 2006 of the First Nations strategy, “Summary of Achievements and Lessons  – Learnt”; “Furthering Aboriginal Forestry: A Strategic Plan for 2007 – 2010.”“Detailed Achievements Report” on 2001-2006 of the First Nations strategy, “Summary of Achievements and Lessons Learnt”; Based on a planning workshop in November, • 2006, the First Nations Council of Advisors, faculty and staff completed a new plan, titled “Furthering Aboriginal Forestry: A Strategic Plan for 2007 – 2010.” Dr. Ronald Trosper from the Salish and Kootenai • Tribes of the Flathead Reservation, Montana, began his third year in the Faculty as associate professor of Aboriginal Forestry, continuing to teach graduate courses FRST522, “Indigenous Peoples and Forest Land Management,” and FRST 529, “Ecological Economics, and undergraduate course CONS 370, “Perspectives on First Nations and Forest Lands.”” Warren Fortier, from Simpcw First Nation in • British Columbia, continued as Coordinator of Aboriginal Initiatives until December, 2006, when he vacated the position and returned to Savona, BC. He is continuing to maintain contact with the Faculty, helping when he can. He told us “it has been my honour and pleasure to have worked with everyone witin the Faculty. I wish the Faculty the very best in future endeavors.” Warren worked directly with the student services • team in the recruitment and retention of Aboriginal students. He collaborated with other Aboriginal coordinators and existing services within the Forest Sciences Centre and the First Nations House of Learning. Warren also provided support to Dr. Ron Trosper in the development and implementation of Aboriginal initiatives on and off campus. Working with Renita Drakes, he maintained the Faculty’s website on Aboriginal forestry. Warren reached out to Aboriginal communities • by participating in career fairs and accepting requests to deliver presentations on perspectives on Aboriginal forestry education. A total of nine undergraduate and two graduate • Aboriginal students were enrolled in forestry programs in 2006-2007. In 2005, the Faculty and Malaspina University • College formally created the First Nations Bridging and Laddering Partnership to offer the first two years of the B.S.F. degree program for block credit transfer to UBC. We continue to implement this partnership. Ronald Trosper B.A., M.A., Ph.D. Associate Professor Aboriginal Forestry 604–822–8089 ronald.trosper@ubc.ca. 2006 Annual Report 17 Ronald Trosper, as chair of the Research • Advisory Board for the Centre for Native Policy and Research, also served on its Board of Directors. This year, in coordination with the First • Nations coordinator for the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, we began to implement an award from the Teaching, Learning and Enhancement Fund to develop a pilot math program for forestry students, including Aboriginal students enrolled in other science-based programs. Dr. Trosper completed a research project • funded by the Sustainable Forest Management Network, “First Nations and Sustainable Forestry: Institutional Conditions for Success.” The project focused upon the factors affecting the success of joint ventures involving First Nations, and other similar arrangements, in the forestry sector. Dr. Trosper is a co- investigator on a continuing project, “A Participatory Approach to Aboriginal Tenure Reform in Canada.” The Carrier-Sekani Tribal Council is a participant in this project, which will examine Aboriginal tenures. Dr. Trosper began two new research projects. • One, funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council, supports graduate student Kyle Bateson in work with his band, the Missanabie Cree First Nation of Ontario. The second, funded by the Forest Sciences Program, examines the meaning of criteria and indicator frameworks for First Nations communities. Dr. John Innes is a collaborator on the second new project. Dr. Trosper continues as the North American • focal point for the Task Force on Traditional Forest Knowledge of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations. In connection with this project, he presented a paper, “Indigenous influence on forest management on Indian reservations in the United States,” at the International Conference Cultural Heritage and Sustainable Forest Management: The Role of Traditional Knowledge in Florence, Italy in June 2006. He also served on the organizing committee for the Sharing Indigenous Knowledge conference in Green Bay, Wisconsin in June, 2007. Dr. Trosper will serve as faculty coordinator • for the new graduate program in Forests and Society. Students can pursue a masters degree either with a thesis or with a professional paper. This program provides ways to study indigenous forestry at the graduate level. Further information is available on the web at http://www.forestry.ubc.ca/forsoc/ PlANS FoR 2007 – 08 Efforts in 2007 – 2008 will be directed toward • funding and implementing the new Strategic Plan. The new Vision of the plan is as follows: Guided by indigenous values, and in partnership • with all British Columbians, the UBC Faculty of Forestry will be a global leader in indigenous forest stewardship, and the building and sharing of forest knowledge for future generations through exceptional learning experiences. The new Mission is as follows:• The Faculty of Forestry will work with the  – indigenous peoples of British Columbia and throughout the world to enhance participation and success of Aboriginal people in the forest sector, broadly defined. The new plan contains specific targets organized  – by each of the categories of UBC’s Trek 2010 Vision of the Future: People, Learning, Research, Community and Internationalization.

ACHIEVEMENTS AND PLANS FOREST RESOURCES MANAGEMENT 2006 Annual Report 25 FOREST RESOURCES MANAGEMENT THE BC FORUM on Forest Economics and Policy is a research and education institute that serves as a locus for discussion between stakeholders in academia, government, industry, First Nations, communities and NGOs to address key issues facing the forest sector. Our mission is to examine issues critical to the forest sector, stimulate discussion and conduct focused, unbiased scientific research on the land management, industry competitiveness, and economic sustainability of the BC forest sector. The primary objective of the BC Forum is to influence forest policy with rigorous research and extension, and to do so in a way that keeps the public and stakeholders informed and part of the solution process. RESEARCh In 2006-07, the Forum focused on forest tenure and land management issues. There is common agreement among stakeholders that land tenure is a critical competitiveness issue in British Columbia and that change is needed in BC’s forest tenure and land management systems. The goal of this program area is to identify the information required to identify new ways that BC forest product firms create value for their owners and in the way that public forest values are managed over the long term.

Thomas Maness, UBC Forest Resources Management & Harry Nelson, FEPA unit, UBC (The above publications are available from www.bc-forum.org/_media) Roundtable In January 2007, the Forum hosted a Roundtable on the land management issue. A range of stakeholders participated in a facilitated workshop to identify the principles that a new land management system in BC can be based upon. The Roundtable’s findings will guide the BC Forum’s research and outreach activities and provide the information and synthesis necessary to inform policy decisions. oUtREACh Public events are intended to both inform stakeholders and the general public of the critical issues facing the BC forest sector and to stimulate dialogue and exchange of ideas. Symposia In November 2006 the Forum hosted a symposium entitled “Forest Tenure and Land Management: Creating New Opportunities”. Over 215 participants from the forest industry, government, First Nations, banking sector, academia, communities, and NGOs attended the event that featured presentations on the synthesis papers commissioned by the Forum. Distinguished Lecture Series The lecture series brought together researchers, business leaders, and other stakeholders to create a strategic vision for a sustainable forest sector and included talks on: Social Sustainability, Stewardship and Survival. • Tom Beckley, University of New Brunswick Global Implications for Russia’s Planned Export • Tax on Logs.

The co-op program continued as an integral • and highly successful component of the Wood Products Processing program. Recruitment and outreach activities included: • participation in 16 education and career events; 21 visits to high schools and colleges; and 39 presentations to 1,243 students and 47 educators. We also liaised closely with prospective students, and achieved a 28% increase in applications with an overall increase of 43% in new registered students in 2006 compared to 2005. An event was held in April 2006 to recognize • the 10th anniversary of the Wood Products Processing program. Students from Dr. Greg Smith’s composite class • represented UBC in an engineering design competition organized by the Canadian Wood Council. One group placed second in the overall performance category, another group won the longest distance category and a third group won the best team spirit category. A group of Wood Products Processing students • collaborated with students from the UBC School of Architecture and Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design Industrial Design programs on a project to design wood-based prefabricated housing units. Both the Department and CAWP were externally • reviewed in late 2006. Dr. Phil Evans completed his five year term • as Director of the Centre for Advanced Wood Processing in December 2006. Dr. Paul McFarlane completed his five year term • as Department Head in February 2007 and was reappointed for a second term. In response to the external reviews’ • recommendations, a CAWP Management Committee has been established, with Dr. Cohen serving as the Chair. Dr. Phil Evans continued to lead the very • successful CIDA funded project on wood products education for South Africa. Dr. Shawn Mansfield was appointed a Senior • Early Career Scholar by the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies. Dr. John Kadla was appointed Editor of the • Journal of Wood Chemistry and Technology. Dr. Colette Breuil was appointed a Fellow of the • International Academy of Wood Science. Dr. Phil Evans led a successful bid by the • Department to become a member of the US- based Wood-Based Composites Center. Drs. Breuil, Evans, Lam, Mansfield and Ruddick • received new NSERC Operating Grant research funds. Drs. Avramidis, Dai, Kadla, Saddler, Smith and Sowlati are receiving ongoing funding. Drs. Evans, Cohen, Kozak and Smith received • new funding from the Value-to-Wood program. Dr. McFarlane recieved new funding from the • SFM Network. Dr. Kozak was on sabbatical leave from July • 2006 to June 2007 and Dr. Evans was on administrative leave from January 2007 to December 2007. PlANS FoR 2007 – 08 Following input from the Department External • Review a range of curriculum options for delivery of programs incorporating some of the courses from the Wood Products Processing program will be examined. Diverse initiatives will be completed to respond • to the recommendations of the Departmental review committee. Funding for the BC Leadership Chair in • Advanced Wood Processing will be completed. An appointment will be made to the Chair in • Wood Building Design and Construction. Faculty will continue to vigorously pursue • diverse funding sources to support wood products research. 2006 Annual Report 37 Ph o to : J a m ie  M ye rs 38 UBC Faculty of Forestry Philip D.

These industries, which are generally small to medium scale enterprises (SMEs), manufacture a diverse range of products whose value greatly exceeds their raw material content. The success of such SMEs depends, in part, on their ability to effectively adapt and utilize new concepts and manufacturing technology in order to produce the products and services that an increasingly discerning and unforgiving global marketplace requires. CAWP’s role within this context is to provide industry with access to highly educated and trained students with the capacity to lead and drive change in the industry; offer a continuing education program aimed at enhancing the skills of existing industry employees and an extension service designed to improve the manufacturing efficiency of SMEs; finally an interdisciplinary research program. In fulfilling this mandate, CAWP is playing an important role in the development of Canada’s forest industries and providing a model for educational-industry partnerships that institutions in many countries are seeking to emulate. CAWP is funded through an endowment and cost recovery on services. Efforts to create a new BC Leadership Chair in Advanced Forest Products Manufacturing have progressed well under the stewardship of Dr. Phil Evans. Dr. Evans completed his five year term as Director in December 2006. As a consequence of his effective leadership CAWP is well positioned to meet the ongoing needs of Canada’s wood processing sector. In 2006-07 CAWP continued to enjoy strong support from industry equipment and technology suppliers, enabling us to maintain and improve our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities. A new Industrial Wood Finishing Certificate was launched in 2006 and received positive feedback from participants for its blend of flexible online study and an intensive face-to-face practical session. A number of CAWP staff and faculty associates have been centrally involved in curriculum development activities as part of our Canadian International Development Agency- funded project to create wood products processing education programs for use in South Africa. The process has strengthened both undergraduate and industry training courses at CAWP through the development of improved teaching materials and learning resources, and a number of new training courses will shortly be available within Canada as a result. In 2006 the Department of Wood Science and CAWP were the focus of an external academic review – a process which created an excellent opportunity for an internal self-study which focused on ways to improve internal synergies and structures in order to better-serve the industry. Extensive consultation within the two units and with senior university administration and external stakeholders resulted in the implementation of a new management structure designed to harmonise the efforts of both units and encourage greater participation in the activities of CAWP. A new Management Committee has been established to ensure that faculty members in the Department of Wood Science provide direct input into CAWP activities, and major decisions on equipment acquisition and use will also be made using a committee-based approach. Seven companies supported CAWP’s programs via our industry partnership program in 2006 – these were; Interforest, Goodfellow, Raywal Kitchens, Weyerhaeuser, Stack-A-Shelf, Tolko and Unison Windows. Many machinery companies continue to provide significant in-kind support. Educational Programs The Wood Products Processing program remains the largest degree program in wood technology/ wood science in North America. The 10th anniversary of the Wood Products Processing co-op program was celebrated in 2006, along with the successful completion of more than 500 work terms within the wood products sector. In 2006-7 there were 50 work terms completed, reflecting a well-balanced geographical distribution across Canada in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, and New Brunswick. CAWP endeavours to offer the best possible equipment and facilities to students, reflecting the latest technological innovations in the industry. In 2006-7 new collaborative agreements with CAD/CAM software providers brought a full educational version of AutoCAD to the undergraduate computing lab. In addition, the powerful Solidworks 3D modeling system and Microvellum integrated quotation and design package have been installed for student use. Integrated ceiling-mounted data projectors have been added to the CAWP classroom, and a new large-screen LCD display system installed in the simulation lab. In the high-head machinery laboratory the existing wide-belt sanding unit and edgebander have both been replaced by updated models through the generous support of SCM. Under an agreement negotiated with SCM in early 2007 a five-axis router will be added to the high-head lab inventory, complementing the 3-axis machine already in place. SCM has also agreed to base a technician at CAWP to service the SCM equipment, which will greatly improve the technical support available to students and industry learners.

Ten learners – five from BC, four from Ontario and one from Indonesia – participated in this year’s program. The program has received attention from a pedagogical perspective from several quarters for its integration of academic (undergraduate) teaching and professional (industry) training. The program includes interaction between undergraduate and industry learners through joint discussion forums and a shared e-learning web site. Other training courses based on this model are being considered. The UBC Certificate in Kiln Drying continues to be delivered annually as a series of four one-week sessions at UBC. A proposal is currently being prepared to develop web-based pre-study components to shorten time away from the workplace for trainees and thereby increase enrolment. In August 2006 CAWP and Wood & Wood Products magazine held their third joint conference on industrial wood finishing in Atlanta prior to the International Woodworking Fair. A second major event took place in February 2007, with a series of workshops and symposia on the digital fabrication and design of wood products that attracted over 200 architects, designers and educators from around North America. The events included several integrated design and manufacturing workshops utilising CAD/CAM software and the Hundegger K2 CNC milling machine in the CAWP high-head machinery laboratory. Prominent architects and designers also gave well-attended evening lectures, and the week-long series culminated in a reception and exhibition in the Forest Sciences Centre. CAWP’s international development project in South Africa, supported by Canadian International Development Agency, is progressing on schedule. Two e-learning courses have now been fully developed, three more will be completed within 2007, and the remaining two undergraduate courses will be rolled out in 2008. The project has grown in scope, with an agreement for UBC to provide two further e-learning courses on wood science and the forest products industry for use as industry training courses. CAWP has also entered into a partnership with Emily Carr Institute (ECI) to develop a course on furniture design for industry learners in South Africa. The latter course will be funded by South African provincial and federal government contributions, but a version of the finished course is also expected to be offered by CAWP/ECI in Canada. CAWP has secured an agreement with BC Wood Specialties Group for use of the training curriculum formerly taught at the Value-Added Skills Centre, Abbotsford. The agreement will allow CAWP to offer technical training on all of the major wood processing machinery at CAWP, and at company locations through flexible in-plant training services. Research CAWP’s role under an integrated structure with the Department of Wood Science will be to act as a conduit between the industry and academic communities in order to ensure that applied research activities within the department and CAWP fully reflect industry needs. In 2007 CAWP will consult with industry regarding the creation of a regular forum at which academic and industry participants can share information on current research and determine future priorities. The Wood Based Composite Centre recently (2006) re-evaluated their partner universities, during which UBC submitted its application to be considered as a partner university in competition with the original US university partners.  UBC was successful in its efforts, displacing one of the original university members, and is the first and only university partner from outside the US. During the meeting, the partner universities presented research results in the form of presentations and posters to the industrial members, followed by a tour of the UBC facilities.  Based on the comments from the Advisory Board, UBC presented well and reaffirmed the Board’s decision to admit UBC to the group. Six faculty members of the Department of Wood Science have received funding ($467k over two years) for five new research projects from the NRCan-CFS Value-to-Wood program for 2007- 09. The research themes of these projects range from finishing to building systems and from forest certification and life cycle analysis to advanced wood composites. PlANS FoR 2007 – 08 Increase industry support for CAWP by further • developing our industry partnership program. Launch new e-learning and blended learning • courses in advanced wood processing. Provide flexible industry training solutions • tailored to company needs. Increase industry involvement in determining • research priorities through an annual research forum. Revaluate the means to provide benefits to the • Canadian advanced wood processing sector and if required expand the Industry Advisory Board to assist.

VISITING AND POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWS Chowdhury, Jahangir (CAWP, UBC) Semple, Kate (CAWP, UBC) Weizenegger, Johannes (Applied Sciences, University of Biel, Switzerland) CENTRE FOR ADVANCED WOOD PROCESSING 40 UBC Faculty of Forestry CENTRE FOR APPLIED  CONSERVATION RESEARCH INCREASING DEMAND for natural resources makes the maintenance of healthy, sustainable forests a key challenge for the future. To address this challenge, Dr. Fred Bunnell and Dean Clark Binkley established the Centre for Applied Conservation Biology in 1991. Over the past 16 years, our faculty, post doctoral fellows and graduate students have build a reputation for excellence in biodiversity conservation research. In 2001 we became the Centre for Applied Conservation Research (CACR) under the direction of Dr. John Innes, reflecting a broader mandate to incorporate social and economic issues into applied conservation research. Dr. Peter Arcese and Dr. Sarah Gergel now share CACR directorship and draw from across campus, and other universities, for collaborations improving the conservation of species and ecosystems and responsible use of natural resources. hIGhlIGhtS oF 2006 – 07 Launch of New Website Thanks to the hard work of CACR PDF Tara Martin, our new website has been launched: http://cacr.forestry.ubc.ca/ Please visit us on-line for recent updates on research and news on upcoming events. Smart Decision-Making in Conservation: Workshop and Seminar CACR hosted a public lecture and workshop to improve the quantitative tools used in decision-making for marine and terrestrial reserve design. The week opened with a public lecture by Professor Hugh Possingham, a Fellow of The Australian Academy of Science. Hugh recently received the Fenner medal from the Australian Academy of Sciences and Australian Mathematical Society Medal for work on MARXAN, software developed in his lab and used world-wide to find optimal solutions for reserve design. Professor Daniel Pauly (UBC Fisheries Centre) spoke on the challenges of sustainable management of marine ecosystems. A “Marxan Best Practices Workshop” involved managers from around the world to develop best management practices for using MARXAN and drafted a publication led by Pacific Marine Analysis and Research (PACMARA), a non-profit leader in systematic marine conservation planning. CACR Graduate Seminar Series Our graduate seminar (CONS 503) focuses on multi- stakeholder land use planning, tackling a new case study each year from social, ecological and economic dimensions. The seminar is inter-departmental by design and a collaborative effort with the Forests & Society Program. Our fall 2006 seminar was led by Gergel, T. Martin, Bull and Grayston and examined the possibility of a sustainable forest economy in Clayoquot Sound. The course examined Iisaak Forest Resources, Ltd, an aboriginal forestry company, which exemplifed the trade-offs faced in coastal forest management. The course integrated diverse perspectives of scientists, managers, First Nations and ENGOs. Symposium: Forestry in BC after the Beetle Epidemic Our Spring 2007 symposia brought together a panel of ecologists and economists to discuss the impact of current MPB policies on the future of the biotic and economic health of our forests. The symposium included: Forestry, Silviculture and Future Forests: The Way • Forward, by Suzanne Simard, Sally Aitken, Dave Coates Biodiversity and Conservation on the Working • Landscape: What will be Left? Who Benefits?, by Kathy Martin, Peter Arcese, and Nicholas Coops Forest Dependent Communities and Economies • in Post-epidemic Conditions, by Thomas Maness CACR Post-Doctoral Associate: Tara Martin Optimal allocation of scarce resources is an area Tara Martin has been pursuing with colleagues from France and Australia, examining optimal conservation strategies for migratory species and for designation of critical habitat for Species at Risk. Tara is also developing techniques to predict the impact of overabundant deer on birds and plants on islands along the BC coast. Research Projects Setting Conservation Priorities in British Columbia Fred Bunnell, founder and former director of CACR, and his colleagues have been working with the Species at Risk Coordination Office and Ecosystems Branch to create goals for species at risk within British Columbia which have now been accepted by Cabinet. Fred and colleagues are now developing tools and a framework for achieving these goals. Corporate Social Responsibility and Value-added Wood Products Rob Kozak and his lab are developing a framework for the diffusion of corporate social responsibility practices in the forestry sector, identifying hurdles and opportunities for Canadian value-added producers. This year, Rob spent part of his sabbatical at Rights and Resources, an NGO in Washington, DC. His work focused on sustainable, community-based alternatives to the timber concession models that dominate forestry in West and Central Africa. Wildlife Biodiversity after the Bark Beetle Epidemic Since 1995, Kathy Martin and students have studied wildlife ecology in the Interior mixed forests that support high biodiversity. Over 40% of wildlife species show significant populations trends in relation to forest health with the largest change in resident cavity nesters. Current students will study the impacts on cavity nesters in post-beetle epidemic forests.

Other research includes stakeholder interviews to assess views on climate change, insect epidemics, tree breeding, and forest genomics, as well as projects on constitutional law and species-at-risk protection. Landscape Ecology Sarah Gergel and colleagues are creating an historic aerial photo archive for several areas in coastal BC that will be used to reconstruct baseline (pre-harvest) forest conditions of the 1930s. They are also developing techniques to improve spatial analysis of high resolution spatial data sources using object-oriented classifiers, in collaboration with the Ministry of Forests & Range and Haida Mapping. Sustainable Forest Management The Sustainable Forest Management Research Laboratory, led by former CACR Director John Innes, is an interdisciplinary research unit focusing on sustainable forest management through an understanding of both human and natural systems. Research projects focus on forest certification, criteria and indicators, effectiveness monitoring, climate change, cumulative impact assessment, forest harvest policy, geomorphologic processes, biodiversity and social and cultural indicators for resource dependent and First Nation communities. Genetics of Carnivores and other organisms The Genetic Data Centre, directed by Carol Ritland, conducts state-of-the art DNA genotyping and sequencing, including projects on coat colour and population structure of Kermode bears, killer whales on the West Coast, and population structure of Alaskan carnivores. Latest projects include cabbage loopers and western tent caterpillars and social spiders. Forest Simulation Modelling Empirical models are excellent predictors of the past, or for a future that is the same as the past, which is unlikely. Process-based models enable one to predict futures that differ from the past, but tend to be excessively complex. Hamish Kimmins and his team are using models which are a hybrid of these approaches to conduct tradeoff and scenario analyses for multiple values at the ecosystem level. Visit: www.forestry.ubc.ca/ecomodels/ Alpine and Arctic Bird Ecology with Climate Change Kathy Martin established The Centre for Alpine Studies (www.forestry.ubc.ca/alpine) to understand how animals survive in increasingly variable conditions in alpine and arctic habitats. Projects include research on ptarmigan and climate change on Vancouver Island and the Yukon, as well as on alpine songbirds in Smithers, BC. Remote sensing and Biodiversity Monitoring Nicholas Coops leads projects applying remote sensing to forest growth and biodiversity issues, including modelling mountain pine beetle damage and mapping biodiversity using satellite data. Salmon Migration Research Scott Hinch and colleagues are using telemetry lab and field experiments to show that high water temperatures in the Fraser River may help explain the extraordinarily high mortality rates being experienced by Fraser sockeye. Bundling Biodiversity Carbon in Credit Markets Gary Bull and colleagues are studying how biodiversity conservation might off-set the economic and opportunity costs of forest harvest on the BC coast, as well as throughout Canada, China and tropical areas worldwide. Soil Biodiversity and Sustainable Forest Management Sue Grayston, Cindy Prescott and colleagues’ green tree project is a multi-disciplinary group of researchers from across BC to quantifying changes in soil microbial and faunal diversity in response to harvesting and assessing variable retention as a tool to maintain soil functions and productivity. Stream and Riparian Research Laboratory John Richardson continues to lead collaborators on the ecology and management of riparian-stream ecosystems, including the influence of reserve strips, ecology of invertebrates and amphibians, and resource limitation in streams. Identifying Critical Habitat Janelle Curtis, Tara Martin, Jordan Rosenfeld (BC MoE), Pippa Sheppard (Parks Canada) and Peter Arcese continue a project to understand the consequences of data quality on the identification of ‘critical habitat’ for species at risk, and to guide research, monitoring and land conservation, soliciting input from recovery teams working throughout Canada. PlANS FoR 2007 – 08 Gergel and Arcese will continue to lead Centre partners to solve interdisciplinary problems in conservation, emphasizing several initiatives for graduate students. The first is a fall symposia designed to highlight the research of our graduate students and post-doctoral associates from diverse disciplinary backgrounds. CACR will also continue in its role of helping oversee a new pilot program for funding applied graduate student research. For the next 3 years, the FIA-FSP is funding a pilot project to facilitate academic research by graduate students on applied topics in forest science and conservation. CACR oversaw the call for proposals and selection, and will host meetings between candidates and the FSP board to facilitate applied learning by students, researchers and managers in the public sector.

CENTRE FOR APPLIED CONSERVATION RESEARCH 42 UBC Faculty of Forestry THE FACULTY OF FORESTRY operates three Research Forests: The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest (Knapp Forest) near Maple Ridge on the coast, the Alex Fraser Research Forest (Fraser Forest) near Williams Lake in the central interior of BC and the Aleza Lake Research Forest (Aleza Forest), near Prince George (jointly operated with the University of Northern British Columbia). The mission of the Research Forests is to support the Faculty of Forestry, other partner universities and research organizations in serving the people of BC through teaching and research. This is accomplished by hosting research from a 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 eight diverse biogeoclimatic subzones and three tenure systems, offers a variety of research and education opportunities.

Federal funding represented 45.6% of our total funds received (down from 48.2% last year). Members of the Faculty held 16 NSERC Strategic grants, 4 Collaborative Research and Development grants, 1 Special Research Opportunity grant, 1 Industrial Research Chair, 39 Discovery grants, 2 SSHRC grants and 13 Network of Centres for Excellence awards, mostly from the Sustainable Forest Management NCE. Canada Research Chairs and Canada Foundation for Innovation awards contributed another $710,534. Natural Resources Canada contributed $1.55 million, mostly to support research addressing the mountain pine beetle problem. Provincial funding increased again this year, as a result of a 3-fold increase in projects funded by the FIA – Forest Sciences Program (nearly $2.5 million). The BC Ministry of Forests and Range funded an additional 16 projects for a total of just under $1 million dollars. Forestry Innovation Investment funds supported nine research projects for a total of $837,595. Private industry support for research contributed another $1.45 million in 50 projects. The largest industry contributors were Canfor Corporation, Ainsworth Lumber and the Coast Forest and Lumber Association. International research support was down to $449,497 or 3.8% of research funding. We also received endowment income of $1.6 million for the year. This funding is provided by endowments originally set up by Forest Renewal BC in support of five Chairs, as well as from private sources. outcomes Faculty of Forestry members authored 160 articles published in 93 scientific peer-reviewed journals between April 1, 2006 and March 31, 2007. In a recent University of Auburn study on the research impacts of North American forestry programs, the UBC Faculty of Forestry was ranked as first in an index based on citations and publications. Faculty members serve as senior Editors for six international peer-reviewed journals (Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing, Trees- Structure and Function, Journal of Forest Products Business, Journal of Wood Chemistry and Technology, Canadian Journal of Forest Research and World Cindy E.

Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology), and on the editorial boards of 36 journals across the spectrum of forest-related journals. Drs. Grayston and Nelson served on grant review panels for the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. Faculty members made presentations at over 100 scientific conferences around the world. During the past year, twenty-one faculty members welcomed over 50 visiting researchers from 13 countries. Twenty-two of our faculty members hosted a total of 32 post-doctoral fellows. Forestry faculty members made significant contributions to public discourse and understanding of key issues related to BC forests. A very major effort over the winter has been the contribution of several faculty members to the development of a restoration plan for Stanley Park following the devastating wind storms of December, 2006. In April of 2007 five members of the Faculty talked at an “Ask the Experts” public forum on the Park’s blowdown. Several of our faculty members are working on aspects of British Columbia’s devastating mountain pine beetle epidemic. During our annual research evening in February, faculty members presented research and discussed forests and forestry in BC after the beetle epidemic. Faculty members made several presentations in the media on diverse topics including windstorms, forest disturbance, the beetle epidemic, root-rot diseases, biofuels and bioenergy, flood risks related to the beetle epidemic and landscape effects of climate change. Graduate students in the Faculty of Forestry continue to be actively engaged in the community. This year our students promoted science by talking to elementary and high-school students and Girl Guide troops about forests, soil, salmon and birds. Our students are active participants in the Let’s Talk Science scientific literacy program which includes presentations, science fairs and summer camps.

Many of the projects that have been generously supported over the previous year by our alumni and friends have made a significant contribution to helping us reach out to the community; to building our research capacity; and to providing our students with the financial support and facilities needed to further their academic endeavours. It is with this support that the Faculty can continue to promote itself as a world leader in Forestry research and education. For the period April 2006 to March 2007 the Faculty of Forestry raised $1,881,005 in gifts, contributions and pledges in support of student awards, research, endowments and upgrading of our facilities. Forestry Alumni Support The Faculty of Forestry would like to thank forestry alumni for their generous and continued support of our programs and students. This year’s annual appeal raised $54,189.45 in support of projects such as the Loon Lake Redevelopment ($24,744), the Dean of Forestry Scholarship Fund ($7,022), the John Worrall Alumni Bursary in Forestry ($4,877), and the Forestry student lounge known as the “Treehouse.” The Faculty would also like to recognize the contributions of the numerous alumni volunteers and thank them for their continued dedication to the many events and Faculty activities throughout the year.
