The continued formulation of new policies by world bodies in areas such as certification bring us the realisation that we need to have a global perspective in Forestry. For our forest products to compete on the world market we must maintain a broad outlook in order to define the roles that we play in teaching, research and direct professional service to government, industry, native bands and non-governmental organisations. The Forest Sciences Centre research laboratories are now on stream. Faculty successes in Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) granting competitions last year have enabled the establishment of the Genetic Data Centre by Dr. Ritland and the Virtual Reality Laboratory by Dr. Sheppard. In addition, a CFI grant to Dr. Feller has provided for field installations in the aquatic-terrestrial ecosystem research project at the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest in Maple Ridge. W e also celebrated the arrival of the Forest Renewal B C Chairs who greatly enhance our senior level research and teaching capabilities in Conservation Biology, Hydrology, Forest Management and Silviculture. A very interesting session was held in early April with the Forestry Advisory Council to hear the challenges that the Forest Renewal B C Chairs have ahead of them as they establish their research programs. Highlights of 1999/2000 The Table below provides basic indicators of the Faculty 's activities over the past five years along with a forecast for the 2000/01 year.

This year we have had two retirements. Dr. Gene Namkoong, who served as head of the Forest Sciences Department and a professor of Forest and Conservation Genetics, is still making significant contributions to ongoing graduate student research although he was officially retired in 1999. A symposium on "Unifying Objectives of Evolution, Conservation and Breeding" was held in July 1999 to acknowledge Dr. Namkoong ' s four decades of pioneering research in forest genetics. The event was attended by more than 110 participants representing ten countries in Europe, Asia, North and South America. Our second retirement was that of Dr. Laszlo Paszner who retired after 26 years as our professor of Wood Chemistry. Dr. Paszner was a graduate of the Sopron Division of UBC Forestry in 1958. His major research interests were in organosolv pulping and hydrolysis of wood carbohydrates to produce sugars and ethanol. 1999 Annual Report 1 Several faculty searches have been completed during the past year. W e welcome Dr. Jorg Bohlmann who has a joint appointment between the Forest Sciences Department, the Botany Depart- ment and the UBC Biotechnology Laboratory. Dr. Bohlmann's research deals with the biochemistry and molecular genetics of natural product biosynthesis in plants. Dr. Gregory Smith joined the Wood Science Department where he teaches the polymer science of adhesives and coatings as part of his ongoing research in composite wood products. Dr. Shawn Mansfield joined the Wood Science Depart- ment where he has a major responsibility for developing the one-year professional masters program in fibre and wood. Also in the Wood Science Department, Dr. Robert Kozak has been confirmed as an assistant professor of Forest Products Business Management. Faculty searches are underway in Industrial Engineering, Wood Products Processing and Recreation. Undergraduate program enrolments have stabilised and decreased slightly as smaller intakes over the past two years work through the system. The review of professional B.S.F. programs by the Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board was completed and both the Forest Resources Management and the Forest Operations programs have been accredited to 2005. The B.S.F. curriculum review that was started by the Baskerville Task Force five years ago resulted in revised programs being submitted to Senate which has approved the overall plan and the details of the first two years of the new programs. In 1999/00 women comprised 33 per cent of the overall enrolment and almost 50 per cent of (he students in Natural Resources Conservation and Forest Science. Women made up 30 per cent of the B.S.F. and 16 per cent of the Wood Products Processing student enrolments. Self-reported First Nations students totalled 21 representing 14 Nations. This is an increase of four over the previous year and we are looking forward to expanding these numbers as we play an increasing role in capacity building for the First Nations. Close to 100 students are now enrolled in the Wood Products Processing program. This program continues to have 100 per cent placement of all students in co-op education positions in primary and secondary wood processing firms across Canada. The program underwent an independent external review during the year. A favourable report filed with Human Resources Development Canada has resulted in their release of endowment funding to the Centre of Excellence in Advanced Wood Products Processing Funding Society. This is a major compliment to all the faculty and industrial co-operators who have worked to successfully establish this program. We have had 23 UBC students travel on international exchange and internship programs this past year and have hosted 40 students from 12 countries. We also received a tour of 19 graduate level students and 3 faculty from Europe in September as part of the Canada-European Union exchange program Human Dimensions in 21s' Century Forestry. These programs are an example of the implementation of the internationalisation objectives of TREK 2000. Graduate student enrolment was 217 last year. Of the 83 Ph.D. students, 26 per cent are women while 35 per cent of the Masters students are women. We have 34 countries represented by our 88 international graduate students with 17 coming from the United States of America and 14 from the People's Republic of China. The graduate diploma programs offered by the Silviculture and Forest Engineering Institute of British Columbia received recognition this year with a Forest Renewal B.C. Award for Excellence in Education. The Institute of Forest Engineering component was additionally recognised by the Association of B.C. Professional Foresters' Forest Engineering Award of Excellence. Although overall funding for research has declined from within the province, faculty have been successful in obtaining additional federal support from NSERC/SSHRC including (he new Industry/ NSERC-SSHRC/CFS partnership program. A wide range of sponsored research is detailed on page 34-38. Of special note is an innovative interdisciplinary series of grants that have been awarded to faculty to test new and innovative forestry practices in the Arrow District Innovative Forest Practices Agreement (IFPA). No CFI grants were received this year but faculty are applying for future support in this continuing federal and provincial research support program. It was my pleasure to participate in a visit to Ottawa with President Piper, senior administrators and deans in March to express our appreciation for continued federal support through (he CFI program and the recently announced 21st Century Chair program. We have continued to strengthen our relationships with donor and alumni giving. Forestry has one of the highest alumni participation rates of all faculties on campus. We greatly appreciate this continuing support. 2 UBC Faculty of Forestry Our two research forests continue to provide us with high quality teaching, research and demon- stration areas. Each forest hosts a field school during the year. The interface with the communit ies on our forest edges has received special attention in Maple Ridge where an open space planning studio was conducted by Landscape Architecture students under the leadership of Dr. Stephen Sheppard. Results of these studies were presented to the Maple Ridge District Council and served to show the beneficial ways in which class exercises can be applied to real world challenges. Both research forests need to undertake infrastructure development. The Alex Fraser Research Forest is planning a new headquarters building that will be located on the Knife Creek Block. The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest celebrated 50 years of research and teaching in 1999. The original Loon Lake Camp needs redevelopment as the structure of the old log cabins begins to crumble. W e would appreciate any help that readers might be able to give us with this undertaking. Society documents for the Aleza Lake Research Forest, situated 60 km east of Prince George, are in the final stages of approval. W e hope to join with U N B C this summer to obtain the special use permit from the Ministry of Forests so that we can start the development of educational and research activities in the area. We arc progressing in the development of our unit plans for each department and will have an overall Faculty plan by mid-summer. The following workshops and conferences are planned: • "Advanced Training in Forest Gene Resource Management" a workshop at the Forest Sciences Centre, May 15-June 16, 2000, organized by Drs. Namkoong, Aitken, El-Kassaby, Koshy, Ritland and Yanchuk. • "Streamlining Local-Level Information for Sustainable Forest Management'''' a conference being organised by Drs. John Innes and Gary Bull, to be held at UBC, August 28-30, 2000. • "Emerging Markets for Carbon and Other Environmental Services" a workshop sponsored by Forest Trends, the Faculty of Forestry and the Government of B.C., to be held on October 4, 2000, organized by Dr. Gary Bull. • "Global Vision for Forest 2050" a conference hosted by the Liu Centre for Global Issues and the Faculty of Forestry, being organised by Dr. Gary Bull, to be held at UBC, October 12-13, 2000. • "The Nature and Culture of Forests: Implications of Diversity for Sustainability, Trade and Certification" a symposium to be held at the Forest Sciences Centre, May 10-1 I, 2001, being organized by the Institute for European Studies at U B C in cooperation with the Faculty of • "Forest Modelling for Ecosystem Management, Forest Certification, and Sustainable Management" to be held at UBC, August 12-18, 2001. Planning for this International Union of Forestry Research Organizations conference is underway by Drs. Valerie LeMay and J.P. (Hamish) Kimmins. The search for a new Dean continues. With a full complement of faculty we look forward to developing the Facul ty 's teaching and research capabilities and strengthening our interdisciplinary relationships with other units on campus. We also look towards greater provincial, national and international participation so that the global position of British Columbia is better understood by those who manage our extensive public resources and those who express opinions on the way we should manage our forests. I thank all those who have supported the Faculty of Forestry over the past year and would be happy to receive any advicc that would improve the way we steward the resources entrusted to us.

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. • Forest Operations - 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. • Forest Science - B.Sc. (Forestry) This degree is for students interested in more specialized study of the scientific principles related to the growth, development, and ecology of forest species. Emphasis is placed on basic and interactional phenomena that inlluence the establishment, growth, and development of trees and other forest resources. The core subjects include genetics, soils, weather and climate, tree form, tree function, ecology, entomology, pathology, silvics, silviculture, and fire science. This program is also offered as a four-year International Forestry Specialization. • 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 manage- ment, and marketing. State-of-the-art wood processing equipment used during laboratory exercises enables students to develop skills in technical processes and operations carried out in today's industry. Students may choose an area of concentration in business, primary processing, product development, or wood building and 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 strategics. 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. P R O G R A M U P D A T E S IN 1999-00 • The current Forest Resources Management and Forest Operations programs were accred- ited by the Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board to 2005. • Revisions to the Forest Resources Manage- ment program were approved by the Faculty of Forestry. Changes arc currently before UBC Senate for final approval. • Wood Products Processing filled 71 four- month placement sessions as part of the Cooperative Education program. • More than a dozen Forest Operations students have chosen to follow the course syllabus to work towards a Professional Engineer designation as part of their undergraduate degree. • The Natural Resources Conservation Career Services facility helped place over 20 students in 12 community outreach programs last year (www.forestry.ubc.ca/programs/webcontent/ conspg.html). P L A N S F O R 2000-01 • Implement changes to first year of the Forest Resources Management program. • Articulate the revised Forest Resources Management program with colleges and technical institutes in British Columbia. • Investigate the possibility of block transfer into the Natural Resources Conservation degree from B.C. colleges offering two-year Natural Resources diplomas. 4 UBC Faculty of Forestry Helen Samson Coordinator Student Services • Forestry Undergraduate Recruiting Student Services in the Faculty of Forestry is a team of professionals working to recruit students from a broad range of backgrounds, across B.C. and Canada. W e visit career fairs, high schools, colleges and universities on a rotational basis to reach potential students. W e 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. W e also work closely with the UBC Student Recruitment Off ice in campus-wide new student initiatives, as well as out-of-province recruiting activities. • New Student Enrolment In total, 164 new students entered the Faculty this year.

Les taught and carried out research in wood chemistry and continues to work in this area. • New Faculty Appointments MANSFIELD, Shawn D. Dr. Shawn Mansfield has joined the Department of Wood Science as an assistant professor. He obtained a B.Sc. (Hons.) in biology from Mount Allison University and a M.Sc. in microbiology from Dalhousie. After graduating from UBC with a Ph.D. in wood science, Shawn spent two years as a research scientist at the New Zealand Forest Research Institute. Shawn has returned "home" to UBC to help develop and teach in our new one-year non-thesis masters program in fibre and wood. His research interests focus on understanding how fibre morphology and chemistry/biochemistry influence wood, fibre and pulp properties. SMITH, Gregory Dr. Gregory Smith has joined the Department of Wood Science as an assistant professor. He is a graduate of UBC with a B.A.Sc. and M.A.Sc. in metals and materials engineering and a D.Sc.T. in polymer sciencc from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. Greg spent two years with MacMillan Bloedel Research in Vancouver working on adhesion issues, and one year with Forintek Canada Corp. working on blending dynamics for OSB. Greg will be teaching the polymer science of adhesives and coatings, the fundamentals of composite wood properties, and the processing of reconstituted wood composites. His research interests are focussed on understanding the processing-structure- property relationships of wood composites. Completed searches for faculty in Wood Composites (Dr. Gregory Smith) and Forest Products Business Management (Dr. Robert Kozak). Delivered "dry-run" of modular, graduate Masters program in Fibre and Wood, Research and Education in Science and Technology (FAWREST). Offered first of several planned "Distance Education", web-based courses. The first course entitled "Managing Technology for Value Delivery" was successfully completed with students based on three continents. Increased enrolment of undergraduate Wood Products Processing degree program to almost 100 students. Through the efforts of the Centre for Advanced Wood Processing, 100 per cent of our eligible Wood Products Processing students received co-op placements in primary and secondary wood processing firms across Canada and internationally. Faculty members from the Fachhochschulc Rosenheim and the Berner Fachhochschulc continued to make a significant contribution to the design and delivery of the Wood Products Processing program. The Department of Wood Science was accepted as a full member in EU COST Action E l 5 "Advances in the Drying of Wood". This is the first time that a non- European university has been accepted into a COST Action as a full member. Drs. Saddler and Breuil received NSERC strategic grants. PLANS FOR 2000 01 • Continue Faculty searches for Secondary Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering positions. • Continue to increase enrolment in the undergraduate Wood Products Processing program and continue to have 100 per cent placement in the co-op option. • Develop and integrate graduate courses in the Fibre and Wood and Wood Products Processing options. • Develop support for proposed graduate program in Wood Building Design and Construction.

Dr. John Innes has joined the Forest Resources Management Department as professor and Forest Renewal BC Chair in Forest Management. John received his Ph.D. degree from Cambridge University in England in 1983 and most recently was head of the Forest Ecosystems and Ecologi- cal Risks Division of the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research in Birmensdorf, Switzerland. John's approach toward the management of British Columbia's forest resources will be one with a firm scientific basis while at the same time taking into account, in a fair and unbiased manner, the views held by individual stakeholders. His research activities will concentrate on various aspects of the application of sustainable forest management practices in British Columbia. MOORE, R. Dan Dr. Dan Moore (P.Geo.) has joined the Forest Resources Management Department as an asso- ciate professor and Forest Renewal BC Chair in Hydrology. His appointment is one-third Forest Resources Management and two-thirds Geography. Dan received his Ph.D. degree in physical geography from Canterbury University, New Zealand in 1984. He was an assistant professor at McGill University from 1985 to 1987, and then a consulting hydrologist for two years before joining Simon Fraser University. Dan will focus his research program on the effects of forest practices on hydrologic pro- cesses. For example, he is currently involved in a study of subsurface hydrology and stream tem- perature regime in the Stuart-Takla Fish-Forest Interaction Project. An overarching objective in Dan's research will be the translation of research results into models and guidelines appropriate for use by forest managers. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1999-00 • We strengthened our expertise in Forest Management, Hydrology and International Forestry with the appointments of Drs. Innes, Moore and Bull. • Drs. Nelson, Sheppard, Sidle and Meitner were part of a UBC team (including Drs. Kimmins and Bunnell) that are collaborating with the Arrow Forest Licence Group in developing innovative forest practices in the Arrow Forest District. This research integrates social, economic and environmental values. • We prepared a draft Academic Plan outlining strategic directions for the next five years. • We initiated an external review of geospatial support services, focusing on GIS. PLANS FOR 2000-01 We plan to appoint a new assistant professor in Forest Recreation. We will finalize the Department Academic Plan, and provide a short version for viewing on the Faculty web site. With the approaching retirements of Drs. Kozak and Ballard, we will be preparing to recruit replacement faculty during 2000/01. Drs. Innes and Bull are organizing a work- shop on "Streamlining local-level informa- tion for sustainable forest management" to be held at UBC on August 28-30, 2000.

Resident Forester Malcolm Knapp Research Forest Maple Ridge E-mail: power® interchg.ubc.ca 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.

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

Operating budget, extramural funding and research activity 1983/84 - 1999/00 Funding f rom provincial government sources decreased for the third year in a row and, at $3,858,000 for the past year, accounted for only 47.2 per cent of our total extramural funding (down from 49.2 per cent in 1998/99 and 63.4 per cent in 1997/98). This decline was due main- ly to a 46 per cent reduction in funding from the Ministry of Forests (MoF), as well as to the absence of support f rom the B.C. Knowledge Development Fund which had contributed $340,000 (3.8%) to the previous year ' s figures. Our slightly increased funding f rom Forest Renewal BC (FRBC) was due primarily to monies received via the Forest Genetics Council ($302,000) and the B C Advanced Systems Institute ($291,000). Funding from the federal government was down 7.4 per cent f rom 1998/99 figures, mostly due to the absence of funding from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation that had accounted for $751,000 in 1998/99. Our N S E R C / S S H R C funding increased for the 1999/00 year, repre- senting 23.3 per cent of our extramural funding, up from 13.8 per cent the previous year. Funding from industry, at $1,274,000, was down 2.8 per cent f rom the previous year. In addition, we also received endowment funding of $1,192,000, up slightly f rom our 1998/99 value of $ 1,063,000. This funding is provided by endowments f rom FRBC in support of five Chairs in (he Faculty, and the following additional sources: • Weyerhaeuser , MacMil lan Bloedel and Forintek (Chair in Forest Products Biotechnology); Forest Renewal BC (Center for Advanced Wood Processing); the Imajo Cedar Management Fund; the Kathleen and Sheldon Rothwell Fund for forestry research; the Namkoong Family Teaching Exchange and Research Endowment; and the Burgess-Lane Lectureship and Schaffer Lectureship endowments.

Dr. Thomas Maness complet- ed his term as founding director marking four years of unprecedented growth and development. Many research projects, grants and continuing education courses were initiated during these early years. In 1999, the focus was on planning, setting foundations and the successful fulfilment of requirements. The addition of a line of veneering and finishing equipment completes the Advanced Wood Processing Laboratory. This year was also highlighted by the PriccwaterhouseCoopers performance audit that demonstrated the success of the Centre in meeting or exceeding many of the preset goals. The Centre also continues to be a strong Faculty link to the wood products industry. Centre faculty and staff participated in confer- ences and attended industry meetings across Canada and the U.S. as well as hosted visits by industry delegations. Strong industry contact continues to be a top priority. This year we mailed the third issue of our newsletter C A W P N E W S to over 5000 recipients. This is the first of three newsletters that will be sent every year to keep industry informed on newly developed programs and services. Close lies also continue with the Centre 's founding industry advisory board the National Education Initiative, the Fachhochschulc Rosenheim in Germany and the Berner Fachhochschulc in Switzerland. These organiza- tions provide support, technical expertise and invaluable guidance. • Education Programs Support of the Department of Wood Science Wood Products Processing program and manage- ment of the Cooperat ive Education option con- tinue with prominence. Staff members with extensive experience provide faculty with wood industry knowledge and perspective. The Practi- cal Woodworking course for new undergraduate students and many new industry-relevant hands- on laboratories were developed and taught. Student placements in the Cooperative Educa- tion program increased to 66 and again, achieved a 100 per cent placement rate. Although, the majority of students were placed in B.C., Manitoba and Ontario, opportunities in the U.S., Europe, Japan and elsewhere are developing. The job opportunities for students and graduates continue to rival those in other high technology industries. • Continuing Education Our involvement in industry driven workshops, conferences and other continuing education programs continued to increase. In 1999, we offered 26 programs across Canada. One new program, the International Conference on Global Markets for Value-Added Wood Products, focussed on gaining marketing advantages and access. One hundred and thirty delegates attended this event in Halifax. We also offered new courses in Marketing, European Cabinet Making and Veneering. The Centre ' s interactive web site was redeveloped to reach out to industry across Canada. Up-to-date information on current programs and highlights f rom previous courses are now available on-line. • Applied Research and Extension The Wood Products Quality Council of Canada continues its strong support of quality assurance in the wood products industry. In 1999, a third company was added to the pilot quality certifica- tion program. A new industry driven project was also initiated to examine material and enterprise resource planning systems appropriate for the wood industry. Phase I of the wood product development and testing laboratory was completed this year. This laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for the testing of finishes and coatings such as lacquers. Available testing includes abrasion, impact and chemical resistance, hard- ness and gloss. This laboratory is designed for industry projects as well as research and leach- ing. The research project on Japanese Consumer Preferences in Product Quality has been publish- ed and work continues on the Needs Analysis of the Value-Added Wood Industry as well as Real- Time Statistical Process Control. PLANS FOR 2000-01 • Continue focus on undergraduate education. • Pursue development of accredited U B C certificate courses. • Maintain strong emphasis on industry support- ed graduate education and cooperative work experience.

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. Areese). • Effect iveness of uneven-aged structure based management in sustaining forest vertebrates (F. Bunnell and A. Chan-McLeod). • Development of adaptive management for vari- able retention (F. Bunnell and L. Kremsater). • Patterns and mechanisms of Douglas-fir en- croachment in Chilcotin grasslands (S. Glenn). • Landscape pattern effects on species competit ion (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 conservation in high elevation ecosystems (K. Martin). • A decision-support tool evaluating economic and biological consequences of forest plan- ning at the landscape level (J. Nelson). • Soil ecology and nutrient cycling (C. Prcscott). • Conservation genetics of forest trees and forest organisms (K. Ritland). • Inventory and research on the population ecology and genetics of tailed-frogs and Pacific giant salamanders (J. Richardson, K. Ritland, F. Bunnell). • Biodiversity valuation of and development of potential tradeoff expressions between biodiversity and economic values (C. van Kooten). Fred L. Bunnell Director Education Centre faculty taught in three of the Forestry degree programs: Natural Resources Conser- vation, Forest Science, and Forest Resources Management and directed graduate programs of 45 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 3 r annual CACB symposium to show- case Centre research. The "Seminar in Biologi- cal Conservation" series continues 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 spccies richness in managed forests. Our pamphlet series was changed from 8-panel pamphlets to single pages to encompass more topics; again with support from the Canadian Wildl ife 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.

OF B.C. Candace E.B. Parsons Executive Director THE goal of the Silviculture and Forest Engineering Institute of British Columbia (SFEIBC) is 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: G. Baskerville (professor emeritus), D. Cohen, K. Day, M. Feller, J.P. Kimmins, K. Klinka, A. Kozak. D. Lavender (professor emeritus), S. Mitchell, J. McLean, J. Nelson, H. Samson, R. Sidle, D. Tindall, B. van der Kamp and G. Weetman. We acknowledge the financial support of Forest Renewal BC and thank all our many volunteers and other supporters from UBC, the Ministry of Forests, the forest industry, UNBC and the Canadian Forest Service for helping us to achieve our 13lh year of excellence. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1999-00 Program SFEIBC participants by program 1999 - 2000 We were pleased to graduate the first forest engineering diploma class of 24 participants in 1999. Other alumni now total 226 professional and 34 technical silviculture graduates. It was very gratifying to receive the following two awards: - 1999/2000 British Columbia Forests Excellence Award in Education. - 2000 ABCPF/APEGBC Forest Engineering Award of Excellence. PLANS FOR 2000-01 fhc Institute plans to consider broadening its mandate beyond silviculture and forest engineer- ing programs and will launch an enhanced marketing program in 2000 to continue to attract high quality participants. A recent review of the Silviculture diploma program will be implement- ed to ensure that client needs arc fully met. PARSONS, Candace E.B. B.S.F., R.P.F.

Associate Director International Forestry Programs Phone: (604)822-9627 Fax: (604)822-8645 E-mail: sandra@interchg.ubc.ca THE International Forestry programs (IP) office is committed to enabling and facilitating international linkages at the faculty, graduate and undergraduate levels. With this goal in mind, we have supported a number of new and ongoing programs which assist the Faculty of Forestry in maintaining and enhancing its profile internationally. Some of last year's highlights are noted below. We encourage organizations and institutions to contact us. Willi our partners we can improve research and promote an understanding of international forestry issues. • International Exchange and Internships This past year, 23 UBC Forestry students went on exchange and the Faculty hosted 40 students from partner universities from the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Germany, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy. The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest also hosted a number of international students throughout the year and is a major supporter of international programs for the Faculty. • New Canada-European Union Student Mobility Consortium The Faculty of Forestry won a grant to establish a Canada-European Consortium of Forestry Universities that promotes the mobility of students to consortium partner institutions. Members include four Canadian universities: University of British Columbia, University of Toronto, University of Quebec, and the University of New Brunswick. It also includes ten European partners including the University of Aberdeen, Albert-Ludwig University of Freiburg, Universitaire dc Gembloux, University of Helsinki, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, University of Agricultural Sciences, Vienna, Wageningen Agricultural University and the University of Wales. The major objective of the program is to promote student mobility at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. This is done through student exchange, training sessions, short-term tours, research visits and study visits. The grant will continue to the end of 2001. As part of this consortium we have welcomed 20 students to the Faculty and have sent seven students from UBC to partner schools. In addition wc hosted 19 students and three faculty from Europe to take part in a tour of British Columbia in September 1999. Wc look forward to participating in more coordinated tours with the consortium in the future. Sandra Schinnerl Associate Director • International Faculty Research and Projects Many of our facility were involved in international research initiatives, conference coordination, and symposia. Some highlights include: • Ongoing interdisciplinary research projects with the Winter Research Institute-Fuyusoken in Hokkaido, Japan. Publications in progress include articles on bioregionalism and wood construction in Japan. (Research conducted by David Cohen and Ray Cole). • "Streamlining Local-Level Information for Sustainable Forest Management, " a confer- ence being organized by Gary Bull and John Innes, to be held at UBC, August 28-30, 2000. See the web site: www.forestry.ubc.ca/ workshop/index.htm for details. • Planning has begun on the International Union of Forestry Research Organizations conference, "Forest Modelling for Ecosystem Management, Forest Certification, and Sustainable Management, " which will be held at UBC August 12-18, 2001. Valerie LeMay and J.P. (Hamish) Kimmins will be chairing the conference. • A course entitled "Advanced Training in Forest Gene Resource Management, " chaired by Gene Namkoong, will be held at the Forest Sciences Centre, May I5-June 16, 2000. Visit the web site genetics.forestry.ubc.ca/ifi for more information. • International Forestry Specialization The international forestry specialization, available in the Forest Management and Forest Science undergraduate programs, allows students to fulfil core requirements of the main program while specializing in a geographic region in terms of forest issues and science. Students take two years of language courses and participate in an international internship or exchange as part of this option. The objective is to educate students on international forestry issues and better understand Canada 's role in the international forestry arena. 5 0 UBC Faculty of Forestry FIRST NATIONS FORESTRY PROGRAMS Madeleine Maclvor Coordinator THE Faculty's First Nations initiatives are directed towards four areas of activity. They include: 1. Increasing the participation of First Nations students in the Faculty. 2. Providing support services to First Nations students. 3. Incorporating First Nations perspectives and issues within the Forestry curriculum. 4. Creating awareness within the University and the wider community about First Nations perspectives and issues in Forestry. In the past academic year, there were 21 self- identified First Nations students within the Faculty, representing 2.7 per cent of the student body. Of these, 12 students were enrolled in Forest Resources Management, one in Forest Operations, three in Natural Resources Conser- vation, and two in Wood Products Processing. Three students were studying at the Masters level, and an indigenous person from Mexico was enrolled in a Ph.D. program. Of the 21 First Nations students in the Faculty, 7 are female and 14 arc male. Ages ranged from 20 to 51 years, with the average age being 28 years. Students came from the following First Nations: Cree Kwakwaka'wakw Metis Mohawk Nisga'a Nlaka'pamux Nuu-chah-nulth Nuxalk Ojibway Okanagan S litis wap Sto:lo Tahltan Wet'suwet'en Three undergraduate students and one Masters student arc on track for spring graduation. There is an increasing interest on the part of First Nations communities to work with the Faculty of Forestry to meet community research and economic development needs. It is be- coming increasingly apparent that meeting these needs requires the skills of an academic position specializing in First Nations issues. ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1999-00 • Increased enrolment of First Nations students (from 17 to 21). • Undertook extensive recruiting activities in classrooms, at career fairs and in communities throughout B.C. • Developed a searchable data base of over 200 First Nations forestry references. • Co-sponsored, with the National Aboriginal Forestry Association, a workshop on Aboriginal Professional Development in the Forest Sector. The workshop brought together 50 aboriginal foresters, forest technicians, students and academics to generate ideas for increasing aboriginal enrolment in natural resources studies. • Incorporated CONS 370 (Perspectives on First Nations and Forest Lands) as a core course in the B.S.F. curriculum. Information on this course is now available on the web at http://www.arts.ubc.ca/anso/tindall/cons370/. • Included participation of First Nations graduate student and community representa- tives in seven undergraduate and one graduate course. • Hired a part-time First Nations student advisor. PLANS FOR 2000-01 • Fill the Coordinator, First Nations Forestry Programs position left vacant by the departure of Madeleine Maclvor to a new position as associate director of the First Nations House of Learning. • Increase the enrolment of First Nations students. • Develop recruitment materials. • Update the First Nations Forestry Programs web site to include the First Nations forestry reference data base. • Continue to work with Nicola Valley Institute of Technology to develop a laddering process to forestry programs at UBC. • Explore ways to meet the need for an academic position that focuses on First Nations resource issues.

Today, the management of our forests encompasses economic, environmental, social and cultural considerations. Forest conservation, forest management and wood processing require specialized levels of knowledge. At no time has there been a greater need to learn more about our forests, to protect some areas, to enhance the growth and yield of other forested areas, and to continue building a knowledge- based forest sector. Continued financial support from individuals and corporate donations helps us find innovative and effective solutions to forest issues and prepare our students for careers in forestry and forest-related professions. • Designated Areas of Support The Faculty of Forestry received close to seven hundred gifts from donors in the past year. Contributions to the faculty totalled $307,132 and were directed to the following areas: % of total Area of designation $ raised $ raised Scholarships & Bursaries 95,959 30 National Education 14,170 5 Initiative for CAWP Research 17,125 6 Endowments 82,104 27 Academic Programs 97,774 32 Total donations $307,132 100% • Forestry Alumni Continue their Support Forestry alumni continue to make a significant contribution to the Faculty. Forestry continues to have one of the highest alumni participation rates of all the faculties on campus. This year, alumni contributed $56,202 toward Faculty priorities. The ongoing support of alumni is an important part of maintaining and enhancing our student programs. Thank you to all alumni who have contributed and to all the volunteers who made the effort possible. Cheryl Griff ioen Development Off icer • Graduating Students Commit to Class Act Prior to graduating, students arc committ ing their support to the Faculty of Forestry. The 1999-2000 class has received commitments and pledges of over $300 for the class act program. A clock, made out of Douglas-f ir by one of our international students, is one of the many reminders that forestry students are leaving as a permanent legacy of the vitality and achievement of their graduating class. W e commend and thank the donors to the Class Act program for their generous spirit. PLANS FOR 2000-01 • Increase financial support available to our students. It is our priority to ensure that forestry programs are accessible to high caliber students by providing equal access to those students with financial limitations. • Secure necessary funding for projects addressing priority issues in Forestry. • Continue to develop funding support for priority projects in Forestry. Wc extend our sincere appreciation to all those who contributed their time and resources to help us ensure that UBC remains a world leader in forestry education. 5 2 UBC Faculty of Forestry SPECIAL LECTURES H.R. MACMILLAN LECTURES AND COURSE SPONSORSHIP • Conservation Biology Lectures We 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: Tim Schowalter Oregon State University, Corvallis • Community structure and resistance to biological invasions. Dan Keppie University of New Brunswick, Fredericton • Can we use population and community ecology for forest conservation ? David Skelly School of Forestry and Environment, Yale University • Long term dynamics of amphibian populations: Implications for conservation.

Lester Seri Pupau, New Guinea • Integrating conservation concerns into community development initiatives in the highlands of Papua New Guinea. • 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 Georgic Harrison in collaboration with Drs. Michael Feller, Susan Glenn, Scott Hinch and Kathy Martin. The H.R. MacMillan Family Fund is instrumental to the success of Conservation 45 I by providing funds to bring guest lecturers to this innovative new course. The inclusion of these participants benefits the course by exposing students to the breadth of views that characterise resource issues in B.C. The H.R. MacMillan Family Fund enables Conservation 451 to invite multiple speakers to field sites so that students learn practical skills and have the opportunity to apply textbook theories in real world situations. In addition to the academic benefits, the inclusion of outside professionals enables students to increase their sense of professionalism and provides the opportunity for students to meet potential employers. This year, students and faculty had the opportunity to interact with over 30 invited speakers in classroom and field activities. These speakers ranged from academics from other institutions, workers and managers from resource-based industries, First Nations groups, government officials and a range of non-government organisations. 1999 Annual Report 53 S T U D E N T S F O R F O R E S T R Y A W A R E N E S S • Public Lecture Series Students for Forestry Awareness (SFA) is an independent, student organization that has been in existence at UBC for over ten years.
