While much of the future is uncertain one feature is clear- forest conservation, forest management and forest products and production processes will all embody a far higher amount of knowledge than tliey do today. This 1993/94 Annual Report of the Faculty of Forestry describes how we are responding to the broad challenges of increasing the knowledge base for forestry. During last year, • Undergraduate enrolment rose by 20.1% to 400 students. Students new to the Faculty numbered 176 — by far the largest entering class ever. The quality of the class (as measured by grade point average) was also the highest in the Faculty's history. Women comprised 29.5% of the undergraduate class, up from 21% last year and 14% the year before. Bill and Betty Backman generously provided new scholarships to support our Natural Resources Conservation program. • Our graduate program grew by 6.9% to 171 students. At about 4 graduate students per FTE faculty member, the Faculty has reached its planned capacity and can provide additional high- quality graduate education only to the extent that the faculty complement expands. Total funding for graduate-student support increased to about $1.6 million, 20.4% above last year's level. • Based on such measures as success in competitive grants and the overall level of research activity, the Faculty continues to lead Canadian forestry schools. In many fields we rank with the best in the world. Funding for our extramural research program fell by 13.0%, with the bulk of die decline coming from reduced provincial government support. Funding from NSERC and other federal sources rose from 40% of the total last year to 52% this year. We are in die final stages of establishing a major NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Conservation Genetics, and the early stages of developing a Chair in Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems. Widi levels of extramural R&D support per faculty member that are near die highest at UBC, our total research activity is not likely to expand much beyond its current level. • The BC Forestry Continuing Studies Network (which the Faculty helped establish in 1991) served over 10,000 participants during 1993/94. After two years of hard work and outstanding results, Cindy Pearce resigned as Director of the Network, and returned to die Kootenays. We were fortunate to recruit Dr. Patricia Plackett from die New Zealand Forest Research Institute as her replacement. This year die Network opened a new delivery center — its fifdi — at Nordi- west Community College in Smidiers. Widi the recent cutbacks in the FRDA II agreement and its imminent demise, developing stable financial support is a critical need for die Network. • To help draw die links between science and public policy related to forestry, the Faculty mounted several symposia. These included "Conflict in die Clayoquot" (jointly with die Faculty of Law and UBC Continuing Studies), the Centre for Applied Conservation Biology's workshop "Incorporating Biological Diversity in Forest Policy and Management Decisions," and die upcoming international workshop "Universal Measures of Sustainability for Green Labelling" (jointly widi die Faculty of Forestry at die Agricultural University of Malaysia). Through die generosity of the Leslie Scliaffer family, die families of Thomas E. Burgess and David E. Lane, and die II.R. MacMillan Family Fund we were able to bring to UBC several noted experts in various aspects of forestry from diroughout the world. 2 UBC Faculty of Forestry • Our nascent international programs have continued to grow. This year we initiated or signed Memoranda of Understanding with the Faculty of Forestry at the Swedish Agricultural University, the Faculty of Forestry at the Agricultural University of Malaysia, the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia, and the New Zealand Forest Research Institute. We expanded our professional education work with Northeastern China, and are actively working to develop programs in Latin America and in the Russian Far East. • We established a new administrative position — First Nations Forestry and Natural Resource Conservation Coordinator — to help increase native enrolment and curriculum content in the Faculty. We are grateful to the Vancouver Foundation and the B.C. Ministry of Forests for the financial support that makes this position possible. In addition to their support, Ms. Janet Ketcham, the Association of B.C. Professional Foresters, and an anonymous donor have provided new scholarships targeted for First Nations students. • The Department of Wood Science has recently completed a major review of its curriculum. We assessed educational needs using a large, national survey as well as intensive focus group discussions with representatives from both the primary and secondary manufacturing industries. Based on the results from Uiis analysis, we are redesigning the curriculum to respond more directly to industry needs. • The forest operations faculty in the Department of Forest Resource Management are playing a central role in the dialog between the professional foresters and professional engineers and geoscientists concerning the education and experience needed to design forest roads and cut blocks. • The Faculty formally voted to offer the Silviculture Institute of B.C. (SIBC) advanced silviculture program as an official UBC diploma program, and we have reached agreement with the SIBC Board of Directors to do so. We hope we can have this new arrangement in place for the fall of 1994. • During this year we successfully recruited three new faculty members: Dr. Frank Lam in timber engineering (appointed jointly with Forintek), Dr. Susan Glenn in conservation biology, and Dr. Scott Hinch in fisheries (joint with the Fisheries Centre and Westwater Research Centre). In addition, we expect to conclude two additional searches this year, one in landscape architecture and one in sociology (joint with the Department of Anthropology and Sociology). • Final design for the new Pacific Forest Science Centre is almost complete. Construction on this 10,000 net m2 building should commence very early in 1995. • We are in the midst of developing a 3-5 year strategic plan for the Faculty. Our first round of internal discussions is finished. The next step is to involve our external constituencies. During the next six months a subcommittee of the Forestry Advisory Committee and a group of alumni will vet this draft. Once we have concluded these discussions, we plan to distribute a summary of the plan widely. One outcome of the plan will be a statement of the resources needed to support our current and new initiatives. To help us find these financial resources, Mr. John Pennant joined the Faculty in February as our first Faculty Development Officer. Most of the indicators noted above describe aggregate levels of activity in the faculty, and say little about quality or effectiveness. Such measures are more elusive, but perhaps more important. Indeed, high quality and excellence should distinguish all that we do at UBC. Some indicators of this dimension of our performance include: • Last year Dr. Gene Namkoong, Head of our Department of Forest Sciences, won the prestigious Marcus Wallenberg Prize for "patlibreaking contributions to quantitative population genetics, tree breeding and management of genetic resources..." Dr. Fred Bunnell, Director of the Centre for Applied Conservation Biology, won this year's Outstanding Scientist Award given by the Northwest Scientific Association. 1993 Annual Report 3 • The quality of our teaching, as evaluated by our students, is high and improving steadily. Each year we ask students to evaluate each course anonymously. The Figure below shows students' responses to a summary question about overall instructional effectiveness. On a six point scale (with 1.0 = "Excellent" and 6.0 = "Very Poor") the average class rating was 2.16 in 1993/94, close to the "Very Good" level. The steady upward trend in instructional quality has survived the large enrolment increases of the last few years. 8 1 / 8 2 8 3 / 8 4 8 5 / 8 6 8 7 / 8 8 8 9 / 9 0 9 1 / 9 2 9 3 / 9 4 Student Evaluations of Faculty of Forestry Teaching 1980/81 - 1993/94 • The cost-effectiveness of the faculty has improved dramatically. The figure below shows that our cost/student has fallen by 33.5% in the last three years, and we expect about another 10% reduction next year. Our costs have declined as a result of enrolment increases, and as a result of significant improvements in operational efficiency. 6 , 0 0 0 - i 4 , 0 0 0 - 2 , 0 0 0 1 — ' 1 L-J 9 0 / 9 1 9 1 / 9 2 9 2 / 9 3 9 3 / 9 4 e 9 4 / 9 5 e $/Weighted Full Time Equivalent Student, Faculty of Forestry The margin of excellence that distinguishes UBC's Faculty of Forestry is increasingly squeezed between tight provincial budgets, inexorable inflationary pressure, and upward trends in our graduate and undergraduate enrolments. Sustaining our margin of excellence requires diversifying our base of financial support and reducing our near-complete reliance on the provincial government for support of our teaching programs. Our strategic plan articulates a long-term goal of funding half of our overall operating budget from endowment income. Achieving this target will not be easy, but will place us among the world's leading academic institutions in forestry. Our capacity to serve die people of British Columbia through excellence in forestry education and research requires nothing less.

The bulk of die decline came from reduced R&D expenditures by provincial government agencies. Increased federal support for die Faculty partially offset tiiese reductions. Widi levels of extramural R&D funding per faculty member that are among the highest at UBC, our total research activity is not likely to expand much beyond its current level.

Industry provided 19% of our extramural research budget in bodi 1992/1993 and in 1993/1994. Our location widiin a large, research- oriented University in close proximity to several major research institutions greatly enhances our broadly diversified research program. We have collaborative projects widi odier departments at UBC, and widi Forintek, Paprican, FERIC, and BC Research. Last year we expanded our cooperative research activities widi local environmental organizations to help diem deal widi such issues as die use of geographic information systems for die design of a system of reserves in B.C. We look forward to working with die new National Research Council Institute of Machinery Research which is being built on Soudi Campus.

T"1 HE UBC Malcolm Knapp Research Forest at Maple Ridge and the Alex Fraser Research Forest at Williams Lake are dedicated to research, education and demonstration in the practice of forestry. The forests are managed by die Faculty of Forestry as outdoor scientific laboratories for students and researchers and since 1949, more than 600 research projects have been initiated on the Malcolm Knapp Forest and over 75 research projects on die Alex Fraser Forest. Research projects not only yield valuable data, but are used extensively for education and demonstration. Two field schools arc held annually on the Research Forests, one for diird year students at Alex Fraser in the fall, and one for fourdi year students at Malcolm Knapp in the spring. Harvesting operations continue to play a major role in die management of bodi forests, and harvest volumes are maintained at sustainable levels consistent widi die needs for research, education and integrated use. Revenues from harvesting are used to partially finance the maintenance and operation of bodi forests. Continuing education programs in die form of short courses and field trips are offered at bodi forests and the professional staff all participate in teaching academic courses in die Faculty. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1993-94 Donald D. Munro Director Working Plan, Five Year Development Plans, Fire Pre-organization Plans, and die initiation of a Wildlife Plan. An additional plan for development of die Gavin Creek Demonstration Area has been written. We harvested approximately 5,000 cubic metres concentrating on salvage of insect damaged timber, with single tree salvage contributing approximately 30% of die total. Fifteen new research projects were initiated by graduate students and faculty from UBC, Ministry of Forests and private commercial concerns. The Ministry of Forests initiated two major projects using the Research Forest as a test case for the new Provincial Vegetation Inventory System including the use of large scale photography and digital frame cameras. Silviculture operations continued on areas harvested before the creation of die Research Forest, and planting of 100,000 trees on Ministry of Forests and UBC projects will complete die largest planting program since die inception of die Alex Fraser Research Forest. Malcolm Knapp Research Forest Our objectives for 1993-94 were to encourage initiation of significant research projects, com- plete harvesting commenced in 1992-93, initiate a more aggressive cost recovery program, and create new research opportunities. A total of 20 research projects were established by scientists from UBC, SFU, University of Washington and the Ministry of Forests. A Development Officer (funded 50% by die Research Forests) has been appointed by die Faculty of Forestry, and raising funds for renovation of Loon Lake Camp has a high priority. Harvesting of 4,000 cubic metres completed the three year harvest- ing program, and some 500 cubic metres of windblow timber was recovered. Alex Fraser Research Forest Our activity in 1993-94 focused on planning, with the completion of the Management and PLANS FOR 1994-95 The highest priorities include a continuing emphasis on encouraging significant research projects, the development of long term funding strategies for die two forests tiirough die efforts of die Development Officer, endowments and cost recovery, and continuing flexible harvest- ing programs to respond to research, education and forest health needs. At the Malcolm Knapp Forest, an urban/forest interface management plan is in preparation in response to increasing pressure from subdivision construction. At Alex Fraser, we project diat the Wildlife Plan and Vegetation Inventory will be completed, and installation of further significant research projects will continue.

Howard Director HE future success of B.C.'s forest sector is inextricably tied to die international market- place both for products and ideas. As a con- sequence, for the Faculty of Forestry to serve British Columbia effectively, it must be involved internationally. In recognition of this fact we established our international forestry program four years ago. Dr. Howard replaced Dr. Munro as Director in July of 1993 at which time a comprehensive review of activities was begun with die goal of identifying means for increasing the institutional involvement of the Faculty internationally. Widi die help of die Forestry Advisory's subcommittee on Interna- tional Programs, we developed an "options" paper to assist die faculty in identifying and prioritizing opportunities in die international arena. This document has evolved into a strategic plan for international programs. A key component of our efforts is in the establishment of Memorandums of Understand- ing widi a limited number of world-class research and training institutions with which we already have informal ties. These general agreements facilitate the exchange of students, faculty, and odier staff which we anticipate will lead to externally funded cooperative research and training projects. Our progress over the past year is summarized below: MEMORANDUMS OF UNDERSTANDING Anhui Agricultural University, Hefei, China. The New Zealand Forest Research Institute, Rotorua. The Forest Research Institute of Malaysia. Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Umea (negotiated, awaiting signatures). University of Pertanian, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia (under negotiation). Institute of Technology of Costa Rica (ITCR), Cartago (under negotiation). RESEARCH AND TRAINING PROJECTS • China Forest Education Project Objective — Provide training in silviculture, forest management, and economics to Chinese foresters. UBC participation (ongoing) — In cooperation with Sandwell Inc., under a contract with the Asian Development Bank, we are designing and delivering customized educational programs to Chinese foresters. The project is in die final stage in which eight mid-level managers and researchers from China are studying at the Faculty for six months. • China Border Regions Research and Training Project Objective — Enhance die development of border regions in China by strengdiening institutions through integrated programs of research and training. UBC participation (proposed) — The Faculty has been named as one of die leading UBC units in a cooperative proposal to CIDA. We will collaborate widi the Northeast Forestry University in Harbin which has agreed to participate in die design and execution of the project. • Malaysia Conference on Universal Green-labelling Objective — Contribute to die scientific and policy debate on metiiods for certifying that forest products originate from sustainably managed forests. UBC participation (ongoing) — In cooperation with the University of Pertanian Malaysia, we have obtained funds from External Affairs Canada to plan an international conference on measuring sustainability for universal green labelling of forest products. • Russian Economics, Administration and Policy Project Objective — Improve management skills through academic training to encourage market- oriented reforms. UBC participation (proposed) — This project is designed to bring students to UBC for a 10- month program including language training, academic courses and field trips. • Costa Rica Regulation and Enforcement for Forest Management Project Objective — Restructure the forest sector dirough policy change, reorganization of the Forest Service, and establishment of research and training programs. UBC participation (proposed) — In coopera- tion with ITCR, we will build and train researchers in the use of an integrated natural resource supply planning system based on software developed by die Forest Operations Research Group at UBC.

Allaye B.S.F., M.Sc., Ph.D. Acting Associate Director Centre Associates BURTON, Philip CARLSON, John HARESTAD, Alton KLENNER, Walter KRANNITZ, Pamela LERTZMAN, Ken MARTIN, Kathy McLELLAN, Bruce NAMKOONG, Gene NELSON, John PITT, Michael ROWE, Stan SALWASSER, Hal SCUDDER, Geoffrey SHACKLETON, David SMITH, James VAN KOOTEN, Casey r T ' HE Centre for Applied Conservation Biology in the Faculty of Forestry promotes conservation of biological diversity while maintaining economic development. This Centre, established in 1991, is unique in its incorporation of a strong undergraduate program, broad definition of educational targets, close links between basic and applied disciplines, and focus on forested ecosystems where conflicts between biological diversity and economic activities are most contentious. Education The educational program has three elements: an affiliated undergraduate program, a devel- oping graduate program, and short courses. Target audiences are professional foresters, resource managers, the public, and the public media. We are currently filling at least one new position in conservation biology. We are closely linked to the new under- graduate B.Sc. (Natural Resource Conserva- tion) program recently initiated by the Faculty of Forestry. That program includes a core of natural science courses in forest, plant, and animal ecology, conservation biology and landscape ecology, and a suite of social science and management courses in economics, political science and philosophy to translate natural process into human values. With the support of the H.R. MacMillan Family Fund, we are offering a new graduate- level course, "Seminar in Biological Conservation." Extension The Centre's first major outreach program was a series of biodiversity workshops presented with the Forest Service in the southern interior of the province. We recently produced the first outreach pamphlet, "Approaches to Maintain- ing Biological Diversity in British Columbia's Forest." We sponsor conferences for scientists, resource managers and policy-makers to debate issues in conservation biology. The first conference, "Incorporating Biological Diversity in Forest Policy and Management Decisions," was held in February 1994 and was co-sponsored by the Centre, Canadian Forest Service, B.C. Ministry of Forests, and Wildlife Habitat Canada. Scientific papers from the conference will be published by UBC Press. We will also produce an executive summary targeted at resource professionals and policy-makers. Fred L. Bunnell Director The director and three Centre Associates currently serve on the Scientific Panel for Sustainable Development in Clayoquot Sound. Research Interdisciplinary, cooperative research is the key to answering the broad questions of con- servation biology. The Centre brings together scholars from the university, the province, and even internationally to collaborate in research. We are testing conservation biology theories in the context of forested ecosystems, and will help apply this knowledge to managed forests, parks and natural areas. Recently, Dr. F.L. Bunnell received the "Outstanding Scientist" award of the Northwest Scientific Association for internationally recognized scientific accom- plishments of outstanding importance to the Pacific Northwest. We are establishing major long-term research projects carried out by our own staff and a network of cooperating scientists from government, industry, and academia. Among efforts currently underway are: • A major, cooperative initiative in the boreal mixed wood forest that includes replicated fragments of different sizes, and appropriate harvest regimes across space and time (Dr. A.C.A. Chan-McLeod). • A grizzly bear research program in Kluane National park directed at reducing bear- human conflicts, while offering maximum conservation protection to what may be the last naturally regulated bear population in North America (Dr. F.L. Bunnell). • A decision-support tool evaluating econo- mic and biological consequences of forest planning at die landscape level; Uiis effort links with the Model Forests program (Dr. F. L. Bunnell). • A large, integrated research program examining potential consequences to vertebrate diversity of forest management practices in die North Columbia Mountains (Dr. C. Galindo-Leal).

Plackett Director ' "P HE BC Forestry Continuing Studies Network was officially established in September 1991. It operates from its Provincial Office in the Faculty of Forestry at UBC and from five other institutions — Malaspina University College (Nanaimo), University College of the Cariboo (Kamloops), Selkirk College (Castlegar), University of Northern BC (Prince George) and Northwest Community College (Smithers). The Network was set up as an organization based at established institutions with forestry programs to coordinate the delivery of continu- ing education in forest resource management on a consistent and cost-effective basis throughout the province. The six key roles of the Network are: • To assess forestry continuing education training needs on an ongoing basis. • To assist with strategy development for forestry continuing education programs. • To maintain databases for targeting advertising and identifying potential instructors. • To organize all aspects of continuing education activities throughout the province including scheduling, advertising, logistic arrangements, and evaluation. • To maintain an up-to-date scheduling calendar listing all current forestry continuing education activities in the province. • To produce two catalogues and calendars per year including a brief description of the activity and contact details for the organizer. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1993-94 Our plans for the 1993-94 fiscal year included the addition of a fifth delivery centre in Smithers. The office was opened in September 1993 and a detailed training needs analysis was undertaken shortly thereafter to help design the training program for this delivery centre. During this fiscal year we have had nearly 10,000 participants attend Network-organized training events. This figure represents a significant increase from the 6000 participants in the previous year. In addition to our regular training program, we undertook one major initiative — the Forest Worker Training Strategy. This project, which was funded by the Ministry of Forests, included a survey of forest worker training in B.C. followed by a workshop. We carried out the survey from our five delivery centres; the survey audience included forest workers and their employers, training organizers, instructors, and training material developers. We examined current training and possible improvements. Our two-day workshop brought together repre- sentatives of stakeholder groups from around the province. The workshop participants reached agreement on a framework for forest worker training beginning with generic training topics and extending through to supervisory training topics in the areas of silviculture, pre- harvest work and harvesting. Other matters addressed by the working groups were training in remote locations, trainer training and certification/licensing/accreditation issues. There was also discussion on the roles of agencies interested in forest worker training and also possible ways of evaluating the effectiveness of training. PLANS FOR 1994-95 Our highest priority is the identification of new opportunities for continuing education in forestry. We will also continue to work on improving the cost-effectiveness and increasing die range of our services. PLACKETT, Patricia A. B.A.(Hons.), M.A., Ph.D. Director YOCHIM, Dwight Dipl. For. Tech.

(Forestry). • Forest Science — B.Sc. (Forestry). • Natural Resources Conservation B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation). Forest Resources Management This major focuses on the multidisciplinary aspects of forest resources biology and manage- ment to include resources such as timber, range, wildlife, recreation, fisheries and water. Studies deal with the unique characteristics of each resource, dieir interactions, and the manipula- tion of forests to yield a variety of desirable products in die context of the social and economic environment of Canadian society. The program prepares the graduate for a career in responsible integrated forest management as a professional forester. Forest Operations This major prepares die graduate for profes- sional forestry responsibilities, with emphasis on planning, design and administration of forest harvesting operations. Areas of study include: design and construction of forest roads and drainage structures; selection, planning and supervision of logging systems; site protection and rehabilitation; and die development of computer applications for harvesting systems. Wood Science and Industry This major provides a strong technical back- ground in wood as a material and a good understanding of wood products manufacture, marketing, engineering and utilization. There are three areas of concentration: • business management and marketing; • industrial process technology; and • science, engineering and biotechnology. Forest Science This major is for students interested in more specialized study of die scientific principles related to die growdi, development and ecology of forest species. Emphasis is placed on basic and interactional phenomena that influence die establishment, growdi and development of trees and other forest resources. These include gene- tics, soils, weather and climate, form, function, ecology, microbiology and odier foundation courses in entomology, patiiology, silvics, silviculture and wood science. Natural Resources Conservation This program is designed to prepare students for careers in the conservation of renewable natural resources, die management of protected areas, and planning for die integrated use of forests and associated wildlands. The program provides students widi an appreciation for die socio-economic environments in which decisions concerning the management of protected areas are made, and a working knowledge of technologically advanced tools and quantitative techniques available to renewable resource planners and managers. Graduate Programs The graduate degrees available from the Faculty of Forestry are as follows: • Doctor of Philosophy — Ph.D. • Master of Forestry — M.F. • Master of Science — M.Sc. • Master of Applied Science — M. A.Sc. PROGRAM CHANGES IN 1993-94 The new second and third year courses in die Natural Resources Conservation degree program were taught for die first time. A quota for first year entry in each of the Forestry and the Natural Resource Conservation programs was put in place. Sixty-five students were allowed into first year of die regular programs and 20 into first year conservation. This quota resulted in an entry level GPA from high school of 2.72 and 2.89 respectively. PLANS FOR 1994-95 The fourth and final year of the Natural Resources Conservation degree program will be offered for die first time. A new diree year diploma program in Forest Operations for technical school graduates will be introduced. The Forest Operations program also will include the Forest Policy course, FRST 415, as per the recommendations of die Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board. A new fourth year integrated resource management course will be taught for die first time in both die B.S.F. programs. 40 UBC Faculty of Forestry UNDER- GRADUATE PROGRAMS Total Enrolment Figures Enrolment for undergraduate students (in all four years of the forestry programs) is up again this year from 333 students to 400 students.
