Although a single unit cannot hope to capture and excel in all of the many activities that constitute "forestry", we are fortunate to be a research-driven Faculty, based in one of the world's great universities, located in one of the most beautiful and forested provinces in the still highly forest-dependent country of Canada. We will continue to serve society, in British Columbia, Canada and throughout the world by improving our capacity to deal with the many facets that constitute forestry. We will do this by offering educational programs ranging from short courses to advanced doctoral degrees, through research on an array of topics from sociology to molecular biology and through direct professional service to government, industry, First Nations bands and private, non-government organizations. Over the past year or so, the University developed an Academic Plan that provided guidelines for faculty and staff in the building of academic plans for their own units. These unit plans will influence, among other things, hiring decisions, program development, and infrastructure support. As part of the process of formulating our plan, we held a retreat in February to get Faculty issues on the table and to define our structure and future plans. Prior to this retreat wc had struck two major committees, one dealing with "operational" issues and one dealing with "vision" issues as well as five sub-committees focusing on recruitment, learning technologies, communications, community, fundraising and coop/ extension. One outcome of this planning process has been the development of a collective vision for the Faculty. We believe that: The Faculty of Forestry at UBC is a world-leader in the creation, synthesis and transfer of the knowledge necessary for the sustainable use, management and conservation of forests and other multiple products. By providing students with an outstanding and distinctive education and by conducting leading-edge research, we contribute to the continued development of a society that is environmentally sensitive, socially responsible, internationally competitive and, above all, knowledge-based. At the retreat there was a general consensus that, to achieve this vision, we will: • Create a culture of innovation, excellence, adaptation and inclusion in teaching, research and management. • Promote outstanding research. • Establish a leadership role in dealing with regional and international "forestry" issues. • Shift our main emphasis from a multidisciplinary (individual) to an interdisciplinary (team) approach. • Broaden the education function beyond our students and the forest community to include a broader community interested in forests. The various subcommittees identified some specific goals. The recruitment committee focused on ways to maintain our undergraduate and graduate enrolment numbers while finding ways to enhance the quality of our students and their educational experience. The communications committee recom- mended that the Faculty take a lead role in the acquisition and dissemination of information on forestry issues, not only profiling the leading edge research carried out by the members of the faculty and their associates, but also providing an impartial forum to encourage constructive debate on contentious issues such as land claims, forestry practices, biotechnology, etc. It was felt that we should be using all of the tools within "learning technology" such as the student/problem-based learn- ing which has been successfully incorporated into many of our undergraduate programs and through the use of other mechanisms such as distance education. This would allow web-based courses to reach students in more distant places while pursuing partnerships with other internationally recognized institutes of learning to both achieve a critical mass of students and the synergistic benefits of course development and exchanges. We have unparalleled opportunities to define what we mean by our "community", with many of our alumni filling the ranks of organizations such as the Association of British Columbia Professional Foresters and the recent establishment of the Aleza Lake Research Forest (in partnership with the University of Northern British Columbia) allowing our, now three, research forests to reach directly into the communities of B.C. Under fundraising we recognized the need to develop scholarships to attract the best undergraduate and graduate students while providing catalytic funds for initiatives such as the rebuilding of the Loon Lake camp at the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest and the support of highly successful programs in areas such as wood products processing and conservation biology. The addition of a full time development officer, Sheila Biggers, will greatly enhance our capacity in this area. Sheila comes to us from the Faculty of Commerce and she has nine years experience in managing, marketing and fundraising. 2000 Annual Report 1 Two particularly noteworthy outcomes of the planning process that were catalyzed by both the "learning technologies" and "coop/extension" committees were the recommendations that we develop both a Faculty-wide coop option for all our undergraduate students and a professional masters program (course-based) with a strong "MBA" bias. The Wood Products Processing program (WPP), which has been in existence for the past four years and which continues to have a 100 per cent student placement, has shown how beneficial a coop option can be. These benefits include increasing the practical experience of the students while providing an opportunity for the employer to assess a potential employee and encouraging employers to provide feedback to us about the quality and relevance of the students' training. We plan to offer coop variations of the highly successful WPP coop in our four other undergraduate programs. During the past two years, the Wood Science Department evaluated a non-thesis (professional masters) program in Fibre and Wood Research and Education in Science and Technology (FAWREST). A follow-up survey to this initiative indicated that both the potential employers and the students wanted a greater emphasis on the so-called "soft skills" (e.g. problem solving, communications, teamwork, etc.) and the incorporation of further business and commerce options within the courses offered. Over the next few years we hope to develop several areas of emphasis within a professional masters degree that can be offered to our own successful forestry graduates and as a means of attracting graduates from other disciplines (science, engineering, etc.) into Forestry. As well as looking to the future we have had another productive year as indicated in the table below.

''Endowment income separated from extramural income from 1996/97 onwards. This past year graduate student enrolment maintained its upward trend with a total count of 231 students. Our number of international graduate students, representing more than 33 countries, increased by ten students from the previous year. We observed a slight increase in the number of female graduate students who represented 41 per cent of our Masters and 30 per ccnt of our Doctoral enrolment. Graduate student support increased by 24 per cent. Over the year, 43 graduate students successfully completed their programs, 8 at the Ph.D. level and 35 at the Masters level. Our undergraduate enrolment, at 508 students, dropped for the second year in a row. However, we welcomed our largest number of visiting and exchange students to date and we had our largest graduating class yet from the Wood Products Processing program. This past year also saw the imple- mentation of the first year of our new program in Forest Resources Management and we are now ready to proceed with implementing changes to the second year of the program. 2 UBC Faculty of Forestry Wc hosted over 55 students from 13 countries in the Faculty who participated in our exchange program. We also had 37 students from UBC Forestry participate in a variety of international experi- ences including student exchange, international work internship, intensive short courses and web- based international forestry courses. The Faculty has also been involved in a number of international training programs that have brought 17 scholars from five countries to the UBC campus. We recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations to strengthen the collaboration and opportunities for faculty and students to become involved in the international issues central to FAO's vision. Last year the Faculty raised over $380,000 from our alumni and friends. These funds were used to support students' awards, programs and research. We plan to continue to establish and prioritize fund- raising activity to support the Faculty and University visions. Research highlights of the year included the award of a Tier I, Canada Research Chair in "the application of forest simulation to help frame public policy" to Dr. Hamish Kimtnins. This was one of only a few chairs awarded to UBC in the first year of this program and it recognises the international calibre of chair recipients. Earlier this year, Dr. Sally Aitken established the Centre for Gene Conser- vation within the Faculty. She will look at issues such as the development of a comprehensive gene conservation strategy for B.C. forest tree species, genetic aspects of certification and genetic diversity and optimal conservation strategies for a variety of species. Our faculty and students had another productive year as evidenced by the maintenance of our extramural funding, only second to medicine at UBC when compared on the basis of full-time-equivalents of faculty members. We continued to maintain our high level of productivity as evidenced by the number of faculty publications and the number of graduate degrees awarded. During the year we were able to recruit several excellent people including Dr. John Richardson to a full-time position in the Department of Forest Sciences, and Dr. Michael Meitner into the Depart- ment of Forest Resources Management. We welcomed Gordon Prest back to the Faculty as coordina- tor of First Nations Forestry. This year also marked the final official year (prior to retirement) for the Faculty of Forestry's first ever Ph.D. graduate student, Dr. Tony Kozak. Tony is very much a part of the "bricks and mortar" of the Faculty and was one of the members of the "Sopron Infusion" that so greatly enriched the forestry community of British Columbia. Plans for 2001/2002 The year 2001/2002 is a banner year for us as we celebrate the 50 ,h anniversary of the Faculty of Forestry at UBC. As part of these celebrations, we will be hosting a series of "current forestry issues" public lectures for our local community. Follow our web site (www.forestry.ubc.ca) for an up-to-date listing of 50 lh anniversary events. The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest is hosting the Coastal Silviculture Committee summer workshop for two days in June and the Western Research Forest Managers conference in October of In August, wc will be hosting (jointly with IUFRO) the "Forest Modelling for Ecosystem Management, Forest Certification and Sustainable Forest Management Conference". Drs. Valerie LeMay and Hamish Kimmins will be co-chairing the conference. We will be recruiting for replacements to retirees Drs.Tim Ballard and Tony Kozak, and beginning the process of looking for replacements for Drs. Karel Klinka and John Barker. We also hope to develop faculty partners in resource economics, First Nations issues and a variety of other areas described in each of the departmental unit plans. Finally, I want to thank Dr. George Hoberg for taking on the role of head of the Forest Resources Management Department as of July P', 2001 and also thank Dr. John Nelson for his sterling work as acting head for the past 2Vi years. We hope to shortly fill the position of head of Wood Science and finalise the other senior management positions within the Faculty during the next few months. 2001.

This major focuses on the multidisciplinary aspects of forest resources biology and manage- ment of forested ecosystems for such products as timber, grazing, wildlife, recreation aesthetics, fish and water. Students learn about the unique characteristics of each resource, their inter- actions, and the manipulation of forests to yield a variety of desirable products in the context of social and economic environments. The program prepares graduates for responsible careers in forest management as professional foresters. This program is also offered as a four-year International Forestry Specialization. • F o r e s t O p e r a t i o n s - B.S.F. This major prepares the graduate for profes- sional 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. • Fores t S c i e n c e - B.Sc. (Forestry) This degree is for students interested in more specialized study of the scientific principles related to the growth, development, and ecology of forest species. Emphasis is placed on basic and interactional phenomena that influence the establishment, growth, and development of trees and other forest resources. The core subjects include genetics, soils, weather and climate, tree form, tree function, ecology, entomology, pathology, silvics, silviculture, and fire science. This program is also offered as a four-year International Forestry Specialization. • Wood Products Processing B.Sc. (Wood Products Processing) This program provides students with a broad knowledge of the wood products industry, including wood manufacturing, business management, and marketing. State-of-the-art wood processing equipment used during laboratory exercises enables students to develop skills in technical processes and operations carried out in today's industry. Students may chose an area of concentration in business, primary processing, product development, or wood building and design. In addition, qualified fourth year students may opt for a minor in Commerce. An extensive five-year co-operative option is available. • Natural Resources Conservation B.Sc. (Natural Resources Conservation) This multidisciplinary program provides students with a solid foundation in the natural and social sciences underlying management and conserva- tion of natural resources, as well as an apprecia- tion for the political and socioeconomic contexts which affect conservation strategies. Students develop a working knowledge of the tools and quantitative techniques used by resource plan- ners. A notable feature of the program is the Integrated Field School offered in the fourth year which features integrated field and classroom instruction throughout the fall term.

We visit career fairs, high schools, colleges and universities on a rotational basis to reach potential students. We also talk with principals, guidance counsellors, advisors and teachers to ensure that they are familiar with our programs of study, entrance requirements and transfer credits. Our office produces and supplies schools and community organizations with infor- mational material for distribution to potential students. We also work closely with the UBC Student Recruitment Office in campus-wide new student initiatives, as well as out-of-province recruiting activities. • New Student Enrolment In total, 166 new or returning students were admitted to the Faculty this year. The students entering into the different years are tabulated below.

V4R 2R3 Phone: (604)463-8148 Fax: (604)463-2712 THE Faculty of Forestry operates two Research Forests: the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest (MKRF) near Maple Ridge on the coast, and the Alex Fraser Research Forest (AFRF) near Williams Lake in the central interior of B.C. The mission of the Research Forests is to support the Faculty of Forestry in serving the people of B.C. through teaching and research. This is accomplished by hosting research from a wide variety of disciplines, in order to create teaching opportunities for students from UBC, other post-secondary institutions, and continuing education programs. The location of the forests, covering five biogeoclimatic zones and three tenure systems, offers a wide variety of research and education opportunities. The Research Forests host three field schools for UBC students: the fall field course for third year students at Alex Fraser Research Forest; a spring field course for fourth year students at Malcolm Knapp Research Forest; and sections of the conservation field course which are held on both forests. Facilities to house students at the Research Forests have been at or above capacity for several years during our recent peak in undergraduate enrolment. A C H I E V E M E N T S IN 2 0 0 0 - 0 1 • Re-acquired management control of the Loon Lake Camp at MKRF, and began redevelop- ment into the Loon Lake Outdoor Education Centre. The camp will now operate as an eco- tourism resort in a working forest, providing research and teaching opportunities in forest recreation. • Completed the development of the Aleza Lake Research Forest Society, in cooperation with UNBC. John McLean and Ken Day represent UBC on the Board of Directors. • Initiated management planning and harvest rate calculations on both AFRF and MKRF. At M K R F significant work has been done to update history records from past harvesting and silviculture activities, so that accurate yield analyses can be completed. • Created a public advisory group for (he MKRF. • Harvested a combined total of nearly 50,000 nr from 155 ha between the two forests. Commercial thinning at MKRF and mountain pine beetle salvage at AFRF featured strongly in the harvesting program. Harvesting at MKRF featured partial retention systems on visually sensitive slopes, and staff at AFRF experimented with a wide range of silvicul- Ken Day Director tural systems. Continued efforts to diversify our range of products improved the average market value of the timber. • Conducted silviculture operations on both forests, included surveys on 650 ha, planting on 78 ha, site preparation on 130 ha and stand tending on 83 ha. • Opened 38 new research files, evenly split between the two forests. A total of 940 research projects have been initiated since 1949. Recent projects lend to be collaborative, with participants from a wide range of academic, government, institutional and corporate organizations. • Directly supported six graduate students through planning and operations projects. • Conducted three field courses for UBC Faculty of Forestry students, plus a variety of other university, technical and public school audiences. Conducted numerous continuing education tours and workshops. • Employed five forestry undergraduate students in summer positions, and hosted (wo interna- tional interns, who contributed to the opera- tional programs of both forests. • Presented papers and posters at a variety of technical and continuing education events. • Participated in a review of land-use planning for mule deer winter range in the Cariboo Forest Region. P L A N S F O R 2 0 0 1 - 0 2 • Complete management planning and yield analysis for both forests. • Continue redevelopment of Loon Lake Outdoor Education Centre, including a fundraising campaign. • Continue aggressive salvage harvesting of mountain pine beetle damage and broken timber at AFRF. • Continue design and planning of the AFRF Headquarters. • Continue to enhance education activities within the Faculty of Forestry. • Increase participation in external continuing education and service work. 2 8 UBC Faculty of Forestry OFFICES, AWARDS AND DISTINCTIONS ALONGSIDE their teaching and research commitments, most Faculty members have committee responsibilities with off-campus organizations and groups.

Operating budget, extramural funding and research activity 1980/81 - 2000/01 Our research funding for this year is listed on the following pages. A review of these research areas shows the wide range of subjects addressed in the Faculty. The basic forest sciences continue to be well supported and include molecular diag- nostic techniques. Several studies draw on the resources of the Genetic Data Centre, as well as the Centre for Forest Gene Conservation. There is increasing interest in managing mixed species stands and this poses challenging problems in growth and yield studies as well as continuing studies of the diversity of other organisms that occupy these more complex ecosystems. Exten- sive research on the ecology of these stands, nutrient cycling, decomposition, as well as insect and disease impacts are being incorporated into increasingly sophisticated models. Watershed management, slope stability, ripar- ian zone management and protection of diversity are additional topics that are being investigated. Sophisticated modeling and visualization capa- bilities in the Collaborative for Advanced Land- scape Planning are being developed and applied in several studies, improving our ability to communicate and design management options as well as cultural/spiritual values of First Nations and other communities. Wood products research is focussing on the production of stable long lasting wood products through improved drying techniques including the application of RF techniques. Quality assurance programs developed for high speed processing centers help to improve returns per unit processed. Detailed property profiles for various wood species are under development to ensure that Canadian products are acceptable in world markets. In addition, we also received endowment income of $1,330,053, up slightly from our 1999/00 value. This funding is provided by endowments from FRBC in support of five Chairs in the Faculty, and the following additional sources: • Weyerhaeuser, MacMillan Bloedel and Forintek (Chair in Forest Products Biotechnology); • Forest Renewal BC (CAWP); • the Imajo Cedar Management Fund; • the Kathleen and Sheldon Rothwell Fund; • the Namkoong Family Teaching Exchange and Research Endowment; and • the Burgess-Lane Lectureship and Schaffer Lectureship endowments.

Darrell Wong, our associate director, left to pursue research opportunities at Forintek Canada Corp. In October, 2000, Dr. David Cohen was appointed interim Centre director following Dr. Simon Ellis' year as acting director and Dr. Thomas Maness' four years as founding director. Our first five years were devoted to develop- ing the physical infrastructure and contributing to the Department of Wood Science's under- graduate program in Wood Products Processing. The next five years will focus on continuing support for the undergraduate program, expan- sion of continuing education activities and the development of research and graduate studies. In 2000, our focus has been on filling vacant positions, establishing a stronger national pres- ence and promoting partnerships with colleges and universities across Canada to fulfill our national mandate. In this past year we have reaffirmed our close tics with Fachhochschule Rosenheim in Germany with visits between both institutions by faculty and directors. We also laid the groundwork to shift industry advising activities from the very supportive advisory board of the National Education Initiative to the smaller advisory board originally approved by the UBC Board of Governors. The NEI board will become a National Sector Council and continue its linkages with C A W P and the undergraduate program. • The Facilities As part of our mandate to maintain a state-of- the-art lab there was renewal in the high head machine lab. Several pieces of equipment were replaced with the latest and most advanced equipment possible, as well as adding to equip- ment available for teaching and research. The Centre's most basic woodworking machines, the jointer, planer and shaper have been replaced with equipment that is state of the art in terms of safety, noise abatement and accuracy. Our Homag edgebander was replaced this year with an NC controlled, user friendly machine on loan from SCM. The newest piece of equipment, a four sided planer, is on loan from Martin Woodwork Machinery Corp. Continued support from equip- ment manufacturers enables us to improve on the lab continuously within a restrictive budget. • Co-operative Education With strong support from the advanced wood processing industry, we continued our success rate of 100% co-op placement. While most placements are national, international placements exposed students to Japanese manufacturing teams, New Zealand's forest plantation manage- ment and large scale U.S. manufacturing. • Continuing Education & Extension Almost 30 workshops and events were offered, with the majority being delivered off campus to maximize accessibility to industry participants. CAWP's Kiln Drying Program is now well established and has gained widespread industry recognition throughout B.C. This year the program was expanded to five modules. A major conference on wood finishing technology was held in Atlanta, Georgia, attracting 120 delegates from leading Canadian and U.S. wood products companies. In addition, C A W P offered practical wood finishing workshops utilizing our new finishing lab facilities. The next focus for continuing education is to expand the program nationally—CAWP is now developing partnerships with institutions and industry groups throughout Canada. • Applied Research We have begun cooperative initiatives with institutions across Canada to develop the resources to promote high level and practical research at the Centre. The Wood Products Quality Council of Canada continues its strong support of quality assurance in the wood products industry. After five years of incubation the Council will become independent in 2001. CAWP is proud to have been able to provide support as this group developed into a premier organization offering quality certification and training to the advanced wood processing industry. P L A N S F O R 2001-02 • Expand partnerships with Canadian institu- tions, our industry supporters, FH-Rosenheim and other educational institutions. • Increase the national focus for extension. • Develop the foundations for a broad-based national research program in advanced wood processing. jyjLcentre for Advanced I f Wood Processing CENTRE FOR ADVANCED WOOD PROCESSING COHEN, David H.

This Centre is unique in its incorporation of under- graduate teaching, 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. • Research Interdisciplinary, cooperative research is the key to answering the broad questions in conser- vation and management. W e are testing ecologi- cal theories in the context of forested ecosystems with the goal of applying this knowledge to managed forests, parks and natural areas. These projects include: • Conservation genetics of whitebark pine (S. Aitken). • Population demography and genetics of island birds (P. Arcese). • Serengeti biodiversity monitoring project (P. Arcese). • Effect iveness of variable retention in sustain- ing forest vertebrates (F. Bunnell and A. Chan-McLeod). • Development of adaptive management for vari- able retention (F. Bunnell and D. Huggard). • Patterns and mechanisms of Douglas-fir en- croachment in Chilcotin grasslands (S. Glenn). • Effects of land-use on stream fishes and their habitat (S. Hinch). • Migration, behaviour, and energetics of up- river migrating adult salmon (S. Hinch). • Environmental change and forests (J. Innes). • Structure and function of cavity-nesting birds in natural and managed forests (K. Martin). • Avian ecology and life history in high elevation ecosystems (K. Martin). • Biodiversity of soil faunal and microbial communit ies (C. Prescott). • Kermode bear conservation genetics (K. Ritland). • Experimental studies of the effects of forest management on stream and riparian eco- system (J. Richardson, K. Ritland, F. Bunnell). • Population ecology of threatened and endan- gered species of amphibians and invertebrates (J. Richardson, K. Ritland, F. Bunnell). • Education Centre faculty taught in three of the Forestry degree programs: Natural Resources Conserva- tion, Forest Science, and Forest Resources Fred L. Bunnell Director Management and directed graduate programs of 70 students. Faculty and associates also gave workshops for diverse audiences, including professional foresters, resource managers and the public. Graduate student activities in the past year included a student maintained Centre web site, initiating a graduate student mentoring program, and the 4 lh annual CACB symposium to show- case Centre research. The "Seminar in Biologi- cal Conservation" scries cont inues to provide a combination of graduate level instruction and public lectures on important conservation issues. (See Special Lectures section in this report.) Extension Outreach employs a variety of approaches. Centre personnel worked closely with the Enhanced Forest Management Pilot Projects and Innovative Forest Practices Agreements to develop credible ways of sustaining species richness in managed forests. W e produced a pamphlet series on several topics with support from the Canadian Wildlife Service. Centre members arc intimately involved in refining those aspects of the B.C. Forest Practices Code that are creating unintended consequences for species richness. • Graduate Student Report The graduate students of the C A C B are a diverse and dynamic group with research interests rang- ing from nutrient cycling to community structure, from marine ecology to semi-arid avian biology. Much of the graduate student research relates to local forest management issues, but there is increasing diversity in both the scope and scale of conservation topics being addressed. The graduate students organise seminars, a discussion group and social events that promote communi- cation and co-operation between students, faculty and affiliated researchers. Katie Aitken, Richard Fcldman and Simone Runyan are the graduate student representatives for 2001/2002. Fax: (604)822-5410 4 8 UBC Faculty of Forestry Candace E.B. Parsons Executive Director THE Silviculture and Forest Engineering Institute of British Columbia changed its name in June 2000 to the Forest Management Institute of British Columbia (FMIBC) to more clearly and succinctly reflect current curriculum and to open the door for future initiatives including broader programming offered to a wider range of forest resource practitioners. The Institute's goal remains the same: to improve forest management planning and practices in B.C. through advanced continuing education. To meet this goal, the Institute offers the following programs to operational forest resource practitioners: • UBC Diploma in Forestry (Advanced Silviculture) - for professional foresters - co-sponsored by the Faculty of Forestry. • UBC Diploma in Forest Engineering - for professional foresters, engineers and geoscientists - co-sponsored by the Faculties of Forestry and Applied Science (Civil Engineering). • Silviculture Technical Program - for forest technologists and technicians. Both diploma programs consist of 12 weeks of advanced continuing education delivered to practising professionals employed by industry, consulting and government from all parts of the province. Instructors, many of whom donate volunteer time to the Institute, are drawn from academia, government, industry and consulting. We are grateful to the following individuals from the UBC Faculty of Forestry for their involvement and support in 2000: J. Barker, G. Baskerville (professor emeritus), D. Bendickson, K. Day, J.

IP's role within the Faculty is to support a broad range of international initiatives and ensure that the Faculty of Forestry is recognized as an international leader of forest management, forest science, natural resources conservation and wood products processing education. In this year 's profile you will find both some of our accomplishments over the past year and some of our planned activities for the upcoming year. We hope to encourage organizations and institutions to contact us to discuss ways in which the Faculty of Forestry at UBC can participate in collaborative research and contribute to forest issues with national and international scope. Students from around the world are also welcome to contact our office for information on our programs and possibilities to complete some or all of their academic studies at UBC Forestry. • International Exchange Program This past year, 72 students from UBC Forestry and our partner universities participated in our exchange program. We received students from Chile, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy. The Malcom Knapp Research Forest also hosted a number of international students throughout the year and is a major supporter of international programs for the Faculty. • Canada-European Union Student Mobility Consortium The Faculty of Forestry is part of a Canada- European Union Consortium of Forestry univer- sities that promotes the mobility of students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels to consortium partner institutions. • Five UBC Forestry students participated in a study program in March 2001 in Freiburg, Germany which looked at the "Forest Management Tools for Ecological and Economic Sustainability". • Three graduate students are participating in an International Forest Conservation Field Camp in conjunction with the University of Toronto through Germany, Switzerland and Italy in May 2001. • Three students also participated in a Web- based Distance Education course on "Forestry in Changing Societies in Europe" offered to consortia partners by the Univer- sity of Joensuu, Finland. Hamish Kimmins Director The Faculty of Forestry looks forward to main- tain close linkages with its consortia partners in the future. • International Faculty Research and Projects Many of our faculty arc involved in interna- tional research initiatives, conference coordina- tion and symposia. Some recent and upcoming highlights include: "Global Vision for the World's Forest to 2050 Meeting" took place in October 2000 and brought together 52 people from 24 countries to discuss how a global vision for the world's forest could be developed. This meeting was the third in a series of discussions and was supported by the World Bank/World Wildlife Fund Alliance. The event was coordinated in conjunction with the Liu Centre for the Study of Global Issues at UBC. Gary Bull was lead organizer for the Faculty of Forestry. For more information on this initiative sec the website: www.oneforest.org/. The " Forest Modelling for Ecosystem Management, Forest Certification, and Sustainable Management Conference", jointly organized by UBC Forestry and the International Union of Forestry Research Organizations will be held at UBC's Forest Sciences Centre on August 12-18, 2001. Valerie LeMay and Hamish Kimmins are co-chairing the conference. Sec the website: www.forcstry.ubc.ca/. • International Training Programs The Faculty of Forestry frequently receives requests to present and coordinate international training programs and tours for scientists from around the world. In order to meet the increasing demands of these requests, which we believe arc essential to the internationalization of the Faculty, the international programs office will be establish- ing an International Training Program, which will make available short term, intensive programs or "modules". These modules will draw from the expertise of our faculty and highlight the current research taking place within the Faculty. We are looking forward to making these programs available beginning in September 2001. 5 0 UBC Faculty of Forestry Gordon W. Prest Coordinator A / i f o fa 1am very pleased to return to this position after an absence of three years to carry on the important work on First Nations initiatives with the Faculty of Forestry. Until rcccnt times, First Nations people have been mainly excluded from the forest sector due in part to the lack of under- standing and recognition of aboriginal rights and title in this province. This has resulted in First Nations issues and perspectives not being properly addressed in post secondary forestry education programs. However, with eventual resolution of the aboriginal land question through the courts and (he treaty process, First Nations will be much more involved at all levels of the forest sector. Currently, with less than ten First Nation foresters registered with the Association of B.C. Professional Foresters, there is an obvious need to increase these numbers to meet the challenges to be laced by First Nations and the province as we enter the 21s' century. In order to meet these challenges, the Faculty of Forestry, through the First Nations Council of Advisors, is developing a First Nations Strategy. The strategy will identify the role and approach that the Faculty can play to achieve the follow- ing strategic goals over the next 5 to 10 years: • Develop a recruitment plan to graduate at least 100 First Nations students with a B.S.F. degree by the year 2010. • Develop a learning environment to increase knowledge and understanding within the Faculty of Forestry on First Nations issues and perspectives. • Incorporate relevant First Nations content into the curricula to prepare students to more effectively address aboriginal rights and title issues and policies as future forest managers. • Hire a lull time faculty member: to develop culturally relevant curricula into the programs; to teach and offer academic support for students involved with First Nations research projects; to assist the Crown to incorporate First Nations perspectives and traditional ecological knowledge into current and future forest policy development as we move towards the post treaty era. A C H I E V E M E N T S IN 2 0 0 0 - 0 1 • Filled the First Nations coordinator position vacated by Madeleine Maclvor as of August 1, 2000 with Gordon W. Prest. • Developed a First Nations Strategy to identify the role and approach the Faculty of Forestry can play in aboriginal post secondary forestry education. • Currently 20 self-identified First Nation students in the undergraduate B.S.F. degree programs; two students in Masters degree studies and one student as a Ph.D. candidate. • Accessed funding from the Aboriginal Post Secondary Special Project Fund with Ministry of Advanced Education, Training and Technology to initiate a First Nations recruitment and retention plan. • Purchased artwork for a First Nations Forestry logo entitled "Protectors of the Forest" and developed a First Nations Forestry brochure for marketing and recruitment of First Nations students.

This would potentially limit relocation to the Lower Mainland and UBC campus to two years to complete third and fourth year to attain a B.S.F. degree from the Faculty of Forestry. • Meet with the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology and the Institute of Indigenous Government and other post secondary institutions and colleges to bridge and ladder potential First Nation technology students into the B.S.F. Program at UBC. • Increase Faculty involvement in the First Nations initiative. • Develop a research agenda for First Nations Forestry issues and host workshop for province-wide discussion with First Nation representatives and others. 2000 Annual Report 51 FACULTY DEVELOPMENT BIGGERS, Sheila Development Officer Phone: (604) 822-8716 Fax: (604)822-8645 E-mail: sbiggers@interchg.ubc.ca HEALTHY, sustainable forests are vital to the future of humans, wildlife and the earth itself. Forests play an unmeasurable role in sup- porting urban development, inspiring folklore and art, and contributing to human physical and spiritual health. Continuing development, popu- lation growth, and issues such as climate change, demand that we manage our forests effectively. Education is the single most effective way to ensure that people for generations to come will manage forests in a way that will continue to promote growth and sustainability. The time has never been better to invest in the UBC Faculty of Forestry. • Designated Areas of Support The Faculty of Forestry received close to six hundred gifts from donors in the past year. Contributions to the Faculty totalled $388,247 and were directed to the following areas: Area of designation $ raised % of total $ raised Scholarships & Bursaries 133,847 34% National Education Initiative for CAWP 9,700 3% Research 12,500 3% Endowments 14,756 4% Academic Programs 217,444 56% Total donations $388,247 100% • Forestry Alumni Continue their Support Forestry alumni showed even greater support of the Faculty this year than they did last year with total giving of $74,399. With much of this support going to student awards, our alumni are making significant contributions to the quality of Forestry students' education. Thank you to all our alumni and friends who show their ongoing support of the Faculty of Forestry. Sheila Biggers Development Officer Some of the areas we will focus on are: • Continuing to build the base of support available to students. We believe, as stated in the University's Trek 2000 Vision, that no deserving student should be denied access to an education because of financial limitations. • The revitalization of the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest to support the ongoing research, learning, and outreach activities of the Faculty. The Forest is becoming an increasingly integral part in the delivery of our programs, providing students with a unique opportunity to learn in the field and develop strong relationships with their peers. The upgrades will improve educational opportunities for students of all ages and in all programs, as well as for the larger community. • Support the First Nations Strategy for UBC Forestry. The importance of understanding and respecting the role First Nations have in the stewardship and management of Canada's forests is ever present. The Faculty is in the process of developing a comprehensive First Nations Strategy ensuring First Nations' students arc recruitcd and supported, issues are developed in course curriculum, and that we have academic competencies in this area. The students, faculty and staff at the UBC Faculty of Forestry thank our friends and supporters. It is your support that enables us (o strengthen our reputation as a world-leader in forestry education. P L A N S F O R 2 0 0 1 - 0 2 The appointment of a new Dean, Dr. Saddler, in the Faculty of Forestry provides an exciting opportunity for development. The Dean is work- ing with the faculty to articulate our vision and goals for the future. Alumni, donors and friends have a large role to play in making the vision a reality. 5 2 UBC Faculty of Forestry SPECIAL LECTURES H.R. M A C M I L L A N LECTURES A N D COURSE SPONSORSHIP • Conservation Biology Lectures Wc invited internationally-known members of the scientific community to UBC to participate in Conservation 500, a graduate seminar course in conservation biology. Drs. Kathy Martin and John Richardson organized the lecture series and taught the course. The lecture series is made possible by a grant from the H.R. MacMillan Family Fund. The following scientists gave public lectures: David Inouye University of Maryland and Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory, Colorado • Use of long-term monitoring to investigate consequences of climate change for high altitude plants, and hibernating and migrating animals. Steve Beissinger University of California, Berkeley • Use of sensitivity analyses for making conservation decisions. Kathy Parker University of Northern British Columbia Prince George • Nutritional ecology of free-living ungulates in natural forest environments. Erica Nol Trent University, Peterborough, Ontario • Forest birds and fragmentation of eastern deciduous forests. Colleen Cassady St. Clair University of Alberta, Edmonton • Fine scale approaches to studying animal movement in fragmented habitats. David Mladenoff University of Wisconsin, Madison • Modelling forested landscapes after human and natural disturbances. Fred Cooke Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, B.C. • Marbled murrelet nesting ecology in B.C. Lukas Keller Princeton University, N.J. • Inbreeding and hybridization in wild animals. Mark Boyce University of Alberta, Edmonton • Applications of cumulative effects analyses, PVA and conservation planning. Peter Abrams University of Toronto, Ontario • How populations can increase as conditions get worse; implications for conservation and fisheries management. • Conservation 451 (Integrated Field School) The H.R. MacMillan Family Fund continues to provide essential support for Conservation 451, a course that is an integral part of the Natural Resources Conservation program. This course integrates natural sciences, social sciences, and management issues related to conservation of natural resources. The course consists of three modules each focussing on an ecosystem in B.C. The course was organised by Georgie Harrison in collaboration with Drs. Michael Feller, Susan Glenn, Scott Hinch and Kathy Martin. The H.R. MacMillan Family Fund is instru- mental to the success of Conservation 451 by providing funds to bring guest lecturers to this innovative new course. The inclusion of these participants benefits the course by exposing students to the breadth of views that characterise resource issues in B.C. The H.R. MacMillan Family Fund enables Conservation 451 to invite multiple speakers to field sites so that students learn practical skills and have the opportunity to apply textbook theories in real world situations. In addition to the academic benefits, the inclusion of outside professionals enables students to increase their sense of professionalism and provides the opportunity for students to meet potential employers. This year, students and faculty had the opportunity to interact with over 30 invited speakers in classroom and field activities. These speakers ranged from academics from other institutions, workers and managers from resource-based industries, First Nations groups, government officials and a range of non- government organisations. BURGESS-LANE L E C T U R E The Burgess-Lane lectureship was established in 1974 by Mrs. Dorothy Burgess and Mrs. Evelyn Lane for the purpose of disseminating scientific information and achievement among forestry students, professional foresters, scientists and the public. This year's lecture was given on February 7, 2001 by Dr. Bob Leicester of CSIRO, Australia. The lecture was held in conjunction with a Faculty research evening and attracted well over 100 interested individuals. Free copies of Dr. Leicester's talk "Engi- neered Performance of Timber Construction " are available by mail or electronically at the Faculty's website www.forestry.ubc.ca. 2000 Annual Report 53  UBC Faculty of Forestry Home Page Location: http://www.forestry.ubc.ca/ 3$rFoiesliy al University of British Columbia, Canada - Netscape Eie £dit View fio £ommunicalof Help 1.-1*1*1 Forestry at UBC 4 -y a rft a & s tf a 11 Reload Home Seaich Netscape Prrtt Securty Shop JjjJj f Bookmarks ij Location jhttp /www lotestry ubc.ca/ $ j ) ' What's Related instant Message a) Membei! g) WebMal 'Sjl Connections §1 BizJoumd §1 SmaclUpdate §1 Mktplace Educa t i on Unde rg radua te Graduate Other P rog rams Depar tments • Forest Sc iences • Forest Resources M a n a g e m e n t • W o o d Science •Af f i l ia ted Units Peop le Faculty Contac t Us Fac i l i t ies Forest Sciences Centre Resea r ch Forests C A W P Wednesday, May 2, 2001 The University of British Co lumb ia ' s Faculty of Forestry is he lp ing mee t the needs of an increasingly know ledge -ba forest sector.
