After almost 10 years in the position, Dr Jack Saddler stepped down, and on 1 July, I had the privilege of taking over the position. Several other staff changes occurred, with Dr Paul MacFarlane stepping down as Head of Wood Science (being replaced in the interim by Dr Rob Kozak) and Dr Ron Trosper resigning from his position in the Department of Forest Resources Management to take up a position at the University of Arizona. Dr Thomas Tannert took up a position in the Department of Wood Science as Assistant Professor and Associate Chair in Wood Building Design. In addition, Christoph Clodius stepped down as Director of Development and was replaced on 1 April 2011 by Emma Starritt. Several changes also occurred in the Forestry Advisory Council, with Jim Farrell, Ian Gill, David Hallman, Kimo Ito, Wulf Killman, Avrim Lazar, Charles Loewen and Dennis Rounsville stepping down after varying years of providing excellent advice. The importance of this Council cannot be over-stated; it provides a critical link between the Faculty and its stakehold- ers, and helps us set the direction for the Faculty’s research, teaching and outreach. We are therefore delighted that sev- eral new members have joined it, including Clark Binkley, Bill Bourgeois, Alana Husby, Brenda Kuecks, Eduardo Rojas-Briales and Tom Rosser. In addition, Garry Merkel agreed to rejoin the Council. The First Nations Council of Advisors did not meet dur- ing the course of the year, but the co-chairs, Gordon Prest and Garry Merkel have been in frequent contact, providing invalu- able advice and ensuring that Faculty’s interactions with First Nations remain a priority. During the year, the Faculty continued to build on the stra- tegic initiatives started by Jack Saddler. For the first time, the number of ISI students exceeded 100, and 17% of the under- graduate population is now from outside Canada. This presents tremendous opportunities for all the students to learn about the cultures and forests of other countries. This is an area in which we expect to see continued expansion, especially as a result of the establishment of the “2+2” programs with several Chinese universities. At the graduate level, we saw a slight reduction in the number of students, primarily because of the reduced funding for forest-related research available from the Province of British Columbia and the continuing financial chal- lenges faced by the forest sector in the province. This is prompt- ing a re-examination of the Faculty’s research priorities, and will likely lead to a greater proportion of the Faculty’s research being undertaken outside British Columbia. There are approxi- Faculty of Forestry activities, 2000/01 – 2010/11 00/01 01/02 02/03 03/04 04/05 05/06 06/07 07/08 08/09 09/10 10/11 Undergraduate enrolment1 508 447 441 448 453 454 467 504 507 557 589 Distance education (fte) 22 19 14 9 9 10 10 10 9 7 7 Graduate enrolment1 231 202 163 170 197 242 252 265 261 268 244 Teaching Evaluation Index2 2.19 2.05 1.88 1.90 1.99 1.89 2.00 4.26 4.29 4.32 4.11 Extramural funding ($000) 8,635 8,357 11,370 11,379 10,427 12,101 11,699 13,296 13,493 12,229 10,918 Endowment income ($000) 1,330 1,342 2,031 1,981 1,706 1,698 1,575 1,902 1,843 1,207 1,075 Extramural funding per GPOB-funded faculty member ($000) 225 214 274 295 260 304 286 365 374 307 279 1 Headcount unless otherwise noted 2 Average numerical score of several criteria used by students to assess teaching performance of faculty members.

The healthy numbers of both undergraduate and graduate students reflect the efforts of our teams in Students Services and the Graduate Programs office. 2011 saw the opening of the UN International Year of Forests, which is intended to celebrate people’s actions around the world to sustainably manage our forests. The Faculty has orga- nized several events as part of this, although many occurred later in the year and after the time period that this report cov- ers (April 2010 to March 2011). In February 2011, Environment Canada and the Department of Forest Resources Management jointly organized an international conference on “Proactive adaptation: Challenges and opportunities for incorporating cli- mate change response within sustainable forest management”. Speakers drawn from around the world discussed the strategies being adopted to help forests and forest-dependent communi- ties adapt to climate change. Another event consisted of a tree planting ceremony, held on World Forestry Day (March 21), at which the new Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (the Hon Steve Thomson), the Consul General for China (Liang Shugen) and the Consul General for India (Ashok Das) joined UBC Chancellor Sarah Morgan-Silvester and myself to plant a tree outside the Faculty. The species chosen was Davidia involucrata, symbolizing our growing links with Asia. A deciduous tree was selected as being appropriate for the Vancouver environment, providing shade in summer but allow- ing light in during the winter. The tree was donated by Faculty alumnus Jeremy Shelford and his company, McMillan LP. Over the year, Faculty members took part in a wide range of activities, and several received significant international awards. These are detailed in the following pages and it would be invidious to single out any one achievement. We were able to co-sponsor a number of events and here I would like to particu- larly mention the Clayoquot Sound Scientific Panel Symposium Learning from our Past, held in Tofino and Ahousaht. The origi- nal panel, which produced landmark recommendations that significantly altered the course of forestry in coastal British Columbia, was co-chaired by (Professor emeritus) Fred Bunnell. The symposium was an opportunity to reflect on these changes and brought together many who were involved in the original panel discussions, as well as some of the new players in the field. Our alumni represent an important part of our Faculty, and one of my first steps was to appoint an Alumni Officer. Jenna McCann moved into this position, having previously been with the Faculty’s development team. Under her leadership, a num- ber of new activities for alumni have been initiated, including a Vancouver dinner (to be repeated in other locations around the province), alumni breakfasts associated with major forestry meetings in Vancouver and Victoria (also to be repeated), and a regular alumni newsletter, which is circulated electronically. Our contacts with alumni have also been increased through a re-design of our Faculty magazine, Branchlines. Sue Watts and Jamie Myers have done a great job in making the maga- zine more accessible, and the interest that it has generated has prompted us to increase production to four issues a year. This is circulated to all alumni, and is now made available to students, as well as being circulated to a growing list of other individuals. We have been trying to encourage more community involve- ment amongst our students, and this year we established links with Grandview Elementary School in downtown Vancouver. Some of our undergraduates and graduates have volunteered to work here, promoting environmental education. We are also looking into the possibility of becoming involved in the resto- ration of Beaver Lake in Vancouver’s Stanley Park, following the Faculty’s very successful involvement in the post-storm recov- ery of the Park. As one of the leading faculties of forestry in the world, we are continuing to take a strong interest in international forestry. We have particularly close links with Asia and, as mentioned above, have established strong relationships with a number of univer- sities in China. We are also becoming increasingly involved with research activities in China. Our links with Korea grew, partly as a result of the World Congress of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations being held in Seoul, and we are seeing significant numbers of students from this part of the world. In addition, we have embarked on a new activ- ity, providing mid-career training for selected officers from the Indian Forest Service. This program is delivered in cooperation with the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, the BC Ministry of Environment, and the Canadian Forest Service, and we hope will lead to closer ties between British Columbia and India. These efforts, together with those in other parts of world, are greatly enriching the experience that we can offer our students and are helping broaden the experience of our faculty. In addition, they are helping build the reputation of the faculty internationally. My first year as Dean has been one of learning, assessment and reflection. I have made considerable efforts to familiarize myself with those aspects of the Faculty that I had previously had little exposure to. I met with all Faculty members individu- ally, and with many of the Faculty’s staff. I also met with many of our alumni and other stakeholders in order to build up a bet- ter picture of what others expect of us. External departmental reviews were initiated and their reports will be considered dur- ing the summer of 2011. All this information will be collated and used in the development of a new Strategic Plan for the Faculty, since our previous one expired in 2010. Our future activities will be consistent with the University’s strategic plan, outlined in Place and Promise: The UBC Plan, and will focus on goals such as research excellence, student learning, aboriginal engagement and sustainability. John Innes Dean, Faculty of Forestry 4 UBC Faculty of Forestry Bachelor of Science in Forestry BSF This degree integrates science and technology to advance the understanding and practice of sustainable forest management. It enables students to become Registered Professional Foresters. Major in Forest Resources Management: This major focuses on the multidisciplinary aspects of forest resources and the management of forested ecosystems. Students learn about the unique characteristics of each resource, their interactions, and the management of forests to yield a variety of desirable products in the context of ecological, social, and economic objectives. Specializations are offered in International Forestry and Community and Aboriginal Forestry. Major in Forest Operations: This major focuses on the engineering, planning, development, harvesting, and manage- ment of forest lands. It is designed to develop professionals who understand both environmental and social objectives and who can provide the link between the growing forest and its prod- ucts. Students can add courses to create eligibility for registra- tion as a Professional Engineer. A Minor in Commerce is offered through the UBC Sauder School of Business. Forest Sciences BSc (Forest Sciences) This program develops individuals who can conduct research in forested ecosystems, and are well prepared for graduate stud- ies. Students gain a strong foundation in the basic biological and environmental sciences, with emphasis on the interacting com- ponents and functions of forests. Areas of concentration include forest ecology, forest entomology or pathology, forest fire sci- ence, forest genetics or biotechnology, forest hydrology and aquatic sciences, forest soils, tree physiology, silviculture, con- servation biology, or wildlife ecology. A four-year International Forestry Specialization is also available. Wood Products Processing BSc (Wood Products Processing) This program is a fusion of science, engineering and business. Students gain a comprehensive understanding of wood science, advanced manufacturing and business operations, and can choose to complement their degree with a Minor in Commerce through the UBC Sauder School of Business. This program was developed in response to the need for university graduates qualified to become leaders in the wood products manufactur- ing sector. Graduates are always in demand and enjoy diverse career opportunities with the highest average salary compared to other UBC undergraduate degrees. Natural Resources Conservation BSc (Natural Resources Conservation) This trans-disciplinary program provides students with a solid foundation in the function, process, and structure of natural eco- systems, with an appreciation for the political, legal, and socio- economic contexts of conservation and management strategies. The development of communication and problem-solving skills, teamwork, and leadership is emphasized. Students select a major at the end of second year: Major in Science and Management: Students obtain a working knowledge of conservation science and management, particularly within the Pacific Northwest context. A notable feature is the fourth year capstone field school which inte- grates field and classroom instruction throughout the fall term. Students can readily pursue Registered Professional Biologist or Forester status through this major. Major in Global Perspectives: Students obtain broad knowl- edge on a range of resource systems. International study is a requirement. A notable feature is the capstone modeling course involving a comprehensive assessment of policy, management, and resource sustainability in developing countries. AChIEvEMENtS IN 2010 – 11 The “Community and Aboriginal Forestry” specialization within the BSF program was implemented in September 2010 and there are currently 5 students enrolled in this new program. There are also other students within Forestry and from across the UBC campus who are taking some of the new courses offered in this program as electives. PlANS FOR 2011 – 12 • Explore the concept of a “Forest Sciences Honours Program” with entry after completion of second year. • Implement a new in-house Forestry Communications course for first year students to replace three credits of the first year English requirement. The curriculum has been designed and the course will be offered once a Faculty member has been identified to teach it.

Since its beginning in 1996, the UBC Forestry Co-op Program has secured work term opportunities for students locally, nationally and throughout the world. Students are able to explore different career options through a variety of work terms, while employers have the opportunity to recruit, train and assess potential future employees. AChIEvEMENtS IN 2010 – 11 • Co-op students completed work terms with consultants, gov- ernment, industry and non-governmental organizations. • Work terms were completed in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Quebec, South Africa, China, Germany, Australia, and the United States. • International work terms were completed with Coneco Engi- neers and Scientists, Great Basin Institute, University of Kansas (United States) and Universiteit Stellenbosch (South Africa) For- est Enterprises Australia, and Gunns Timber Products (Tasma- nia); Nature Flooring (China); and Hochschule Rosenheim Uni- versity of Applied Sciences (Germany). • New employers included: 100 Mile Lumber (100 Mile House, BC), Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada – Beaverlodge Research Farm (Beaverlodge, AB), Coneco Engineers & Scientists (Bridge- water, MA), Great Basin Institute (Reno, NV & Lake Tahoe, CA), Ministry of Environment (Victoria) and Parks Canada – Ecologi- cal Integrity/Fire Management (Gatineau, QC). • The geographical distribution of co-op work terms was 66.2% BC locations; 13.8% Canada outside of BC; and 20% international. • A joint Co-op Presentation Evening/Mentoring event for forestry students was held in October which provided the opportunity for students to share their learning and experiences from their summer work terms. • Along with other UBC co-op programs we hosted UBC co-op information sessions in Victoria and Ottawa for hiring-manag- ers of various federal and BC provincial government agencies, departments and ministries. • A well-attended Co-op Presentation Evening for Wood Prod- ucts Processing students was co-hosted with an Open House for the Centre for Advanced Wood Processing (CAWP) in Octo- ber. Students had the opportunity to showcase their learning and experience gained from their summer work terms as well as network with industry employers.  PlANS FOR 2011 – 12 • Further develop international co-op opportunities to broaden students’ cultural awareness and understanding of global issues related to their degree and future career. • Increase the number of new employers participating in co-op. • Review employer and student marketing strategies. • Continue and further develop joint marketing initiatives with other UBC co-op programs. • Apply for accreditation from the Canadian Association for Co- operative Education (CAFCE).

Our priorities include attracting strong students to our degree pro- grams, enhancing the student experience, and raising the profile of the Faculty of Forestry at UBC and beyond. AChIEvEMENtS IN 2010 – 11 Student Services Student Services staff provide many different types of assistance, including admissions and registration support, orientations and tours, personal and program advising, referrals to other UBC ser- vices and more. We pride ourselves on our personalized approach. Graduate Program staff are located in adjacent office space, creat- ing “one-stop shopping” student services for all Forestry students. Recruitment Activities Chiara Longhi is the primary staff member who recruits and advises both international and domestic students, as well as visit- ing and exchange students, supported by the rest of the Student Services Team as required. Linda Dom provides both co-op and recruitment activities for the Wood Products Processing program. Our Faculty-wide recruitment priority again this year has been to increase international student enrolment and retention, in China and the US in particular. The 2+2 transfer agreements with several Chinese universities are already resulting in increased numbers of international students from China entering our programs. Outstanding Students Robyn hooper, a Natural Resources Conservation Co-op stu- dent (Major in Global Perspectives), was successful in receiving UBC’s most prestigious undergraduate student awards – the Wesbrook Scholar and the Premier Undergraduate Award for outstanding academics, leadership and involvement in student and community activities. Robyn also had the highest academic standing of the Spring 2011 graduating class. Brian Scott, a BSF Forest Operations (Minor in Commerce) student, was chosen to receive this year’s Canadian Institute of Forestry Gold Medal, recognizing him as the most outstanding student of this year’s graduating class. Brian worked closely with the Faculty to organize the student trip to Jasper, a chili cookoff, and the silver ring graduation ceremony, all CIF-affiliated events. Forestry Mentoring Program This year was the third delivery of our Mentoring Program. Groups are comprised of one alumnus/professional mentor plus 1-3 stu- dents (senior and junior). This program helps students to develop their skills in career planning and provides links to their future job market. Mentors included entrepreneurs, retirees and industry and government representatives; participation provided the opportu- nity to inspire future colleagues, to enhance coaching skills, to net- work with other mentors and to maintain a connection with the UBC community. This year’s program was well received by all partic- ipants. Mentoring is popular with students and growing every year – we had 14 groups involved this year and project 15-20 groups next year. We are always looking for more mentors – to learn more, please contact Geoff Anderson at geoff.anderson@ubc.ca. Student Events This year’s Forestry Undergraduate Society (FUS) executive and representatives were Chantelle Chan, Matthew Zustovic, Owen Johnston, Tracy Wotten, Cassandra Storey, Amanda Harvey, Amanda Girard, Cory Wallace, Mitch Wood, Sam James, Chris Boulton, Kit Burke, Marcus Schonnop and Jesse Hodgins. Student Services worked with the FUS to organize and support the following student events: • “Imagine” – the university-wide orientation session held on the first day of classes; • Forestry Week – our week to showcase our Faculty to the rest of campus; • Trip to Jasper, Alberta for the Canadian Institute of Forestry (CIF) 102nd annual conference, including the nationwide Forestry Student Quiz Bowl competition – three UBC teams competed but despite valiant efforts, were out-competed by the University of Alberta; • Dean’s Welcome Back BBQ, a well-attended annual function • CIF Chili Cookoff – complete with “just for fun” Quiz Bowl competition; • International Food Extravaganza, a sampling of student- prepared dishes from the world over; • CIF Silver Ring Ceremony, our magnificent graduation celebration held each spring; • “Coconut” – the legendary year-end event, held again this year at the UBC Farm. PlANS FOR 2011 – 12 • Take a Forestry Quiz Bowl team to Huntsville, Ontario for the 103rd CIF Conference and AGM, where they will compete against college and university forestry teams from across Canada and bring back the Quiz Bowl trophy to UBC! • Find ways to improve and streamline Student Services activities to maximize recruitment and the overall student academic experience. • Continue to enhance the reputation of the Faculty of Forestry and increase awareness of our undergraduate programs, both on campus and beyond. • After over seven years with UBC Forestry, Candace Parsons, our Director of Student Services, will be taking a one year Leave of Absence from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012. Chiara Longhi will be stepping into her role, Yuko Lee will be taking over for Chiara, and we will welcome a new Student Services Assistant (Ana Curcin) in May 2011. Chiara longhi BA, MA Officer, International Recruitment 604.822.9187 chiara.longhi@ubc.ca Undergraduate Students Student Services and Recruitment 2010 Annual Report 7 New Student Enrolment New student enrolment this year was 236, up by over 14%. Our admission GPA for students entering directly from second- ary school remained the same as last year: 78% for the Forest Sciences and Natural Resources Conservation programs and 75% for Wood Products Processing and BSF Forest Resources Management and Forest Operations majors. New students entering into different program years are tabu- lated below. New students 2010 – 11 Year of study Number of new students entering 1 203 2 25 3 7 4 1 total 236 total Enrolment Total undergraduate enrolment grew to 589, an increase of 32 students over the previous year. This increase is a consequence of the higher secondary school entrance standards we have adopted in the past few years, which have resulted in higher retention rates (fewer failures) as well as a larger new student intake. We remain an attractive location for undergraduate visit- ing and exchange students from elsewhere in Canada and the world. This year we hosted 14 visiting and exchange students. In addition to visiting and exchange student enrolment, the num- ber of international students enrolled in our degree programs continues to increase. This year we had 102 international stu- dents, up from 90 the previous year. We remain second in the university to the Sauder School of Business in terms of the pro- portion of international students in our undergraduate programs. The primary sources of our growing number of international stu- dents are the United States and China. The Faculty of Forestry has partnership arrangements with Nanjing Forestry University and Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University and memoranda of understanding with several other Chinese universities which have helped us with attracting suitably qualified students. The percentage of female students in our undergraduate programs is 42.4%, up about two percent over the previous year. This percentage varies considerably among our programs, from about 60% for the Natural Resources Conservation program to about 13% for the Wood Products Processing program.

Fifty-seven percent of our graduate students are from countries other than Canada – we have students from 39 different countries – continuing to make Forestry one of the most culturally diverse graduate programs on campus. Each year we link incoming international students with a current student from the same country or region, to ease their transition to UBC and Vancouver. In 2010/11, 13 current students served as “buddies” for incoming students from Chile, China, Iran, Japan and Romania. The FGSA hosted the third annual Global Tea House talk series with presentations by students from Austria, Canada, China Guatemala, Palestine and Panama about the forests and culture in their native countries.  ACtIvItIES AND AChIEvEMENtS IN 2010 – 11 Jennifer Burt (MSc, Hinch) received the Graduate Teaching Assistant Award. Scott Diguistini (PhD, Breuil) received the Best PhD Thesis Award and Ana Elia Ramon Hidalgo (MSc, Harshaw/ Sheppard) received the Best Master’s Thesis Award. The Forestry Graduate Student Association (FGSA) once again had an excellent executive council this year and played a key role in helping us provide a sense of community for our graduate students. The FGSA organized our key annual social events, the wine and cheese evening in the fall, as well as the much-antici- pated musical ‘coffee house’ in February. Special monthly socials included a “Bake and Skate” holiday party at the Thunderbird Ice Rink, a Beer Tasting and Trivia evening, a Chinese New Year lunch celebration, an Irish Ceilidh, and International Food Night. The FGSA were active in a number of other areas this year, including the development of a new student website and Facebook page, the creation of an International Coordinator position in the FGSA executive and renewed membership in the International Forestry Student Association. The FGSA became sustainability leaders on campus with the launch of a “Zero Waste Events” initiative. The FGSA executive and representatives were Tim Philpott, Dave Pérez, Matt Boyes, Andrea Rivers, Allyson Clark, Colin Ferster, Suzi Malan, Ana Elia Ramon Hidalgo, Richard Schuster, Gwen Huber, Victor Nery, Jonathan Haase, Phil Grace, Ella Furness, Jeff Stephens, Jean-Michel Beaudoin, and Trevor Jones. Thirty students presented their research at the Faculty’s Research Poster Evening and awards for outstanding posters were presented to Jean-Simon Michaud (Coops), Nuwan Sella Kapu (Saddler) and Richard Hewitt (Sowlati). Our students also participated in the first annual UBC “Three Minute Thesis” (3MT) competition, with the Forestry graduate program heat attract- ing 14 competitors. Congratulations to the finalists who will represent Forestry in the UBC 3MT semi-finals: Carolina Chanis (Saddler), Chunling Liu (Evans) and Colin Ferster (Coops). The 3MT presentations can be viewed on the Faculty YouTube page (www.youtube.com/user/UBCForestry#g/u). In August, graduate students from the Faculty of Forestry organized a sub-plenary session at the 23rd IUFRO World Congress in Seoul, Korea. As far as we know, this was the first time that a sub-plenary session at a IUFRO World Congress had all female presenters, was dominated by graduate students and had all of its presenters from a single institution. Their session reflected on the Faculty of Forestry: the diversity and quality of our graduate students and post-doctoral associates, the reputa- tion of the Faculty of Forestry globally, and the recognition of the relevance of our research to global issues. UBC Forestry graduate students were active leaders and par- ticipants again this year in CONFOR West, an annual conference organized by graduate students for graduate students studying forestry and environmental sciences. Dr Phil Evans offered a 12-workshop series on advanced sci- entific writing for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Our graduate students also continue to benefit from graduate skills-training courses in oral presentation and technical writing offered by Dr Susan Watts. Faculty of Forestry Research Seminars were presented by faculty members Peter Arcese, John Kadla, Cindy Prescott, Stephen Sheppard and Taraneh Sowlati. Our excellent graduate program staff continue to provide multi-faceted service to both prospective and current grad stu- dents and their supervisors. An exciting initiative undertaken by our Graduate Program staff this year was a series of digital video interviews with recently completed students who share their thoughts on their experience as graduate students at UBC Forestry. The videos can be seen on both our web site (www. forestry.ubc.ca/Students/Graduate/Profiles/tabid/4799/Default. aspx) as well as the Forestry YouTube page. Graduate Program staff also launched a new database system this year to track applications from prospective students and academic progress of current students. We also updated our database of former stu- dents so that we can keep track of our alumni. Staff also created an electronic file system for student records to reduce our reli- ance on paper files. Finally, we recently welcomed a new gradu- ate Admissions Coordinator to the team, Ms Robin Poirier-Vasic. PlANS FOR 2011 – 12 • Complete development of two new course-based master’s degree programs for launch in 2012. • Participate in the newly approved TRANSFOR-M dual degree master’s program with Canadian and European university partners. www.forestry.ubc.ca/programs/grad Origins of graduate students 2010/11 Canada 42.6% Asia 18.9% USA 11.1% Europe 10.7% Central & South America 7.0% Middle East 7.4% Africa 1.2% Oceania 1.2% Graduate Students Achievements and Plans 12 UBC Faculty of Forestry Graduate Student Funding 2010 – 11 Adequate funding of our graduate students is a priority in the Faculty of Forestry. More than $3.6 million was invested in grad- uate student stipends in 10/11. The average annual stipend for doctoral students (during the first four years of their program) was just over $19,000; for research-based master’s students (dur- ing the first two years of their program) it was just over $15,000. Graduate research assistantships ($1,897,539) are the primary source of student stipends, especially for master’s students, while graduate teaching assistantships contribute about 6% of our student funding ($225,610). Competitive awards (not includ- ing tuition awards) contribute about three-quarters of doctoral student stipends and about one-quarter of master’s student sti- pends ($1,530,805). Twenty-three Forestry graduate students received Tri-Council (NSERC and SSHRC) scholarships. Tri-council scholarships accounted for 35% of the $1.5 million received by our gradu- ate students in competitive awards in 10/11. Lee Kalcsits won a 3-year Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship valued at $50,000 per year. The Faculty of Forestry allocation of 5 FYF-GESs were awarded to incoming doctoral students Ryan Germain, Rebecca Klady, Fattane Nadimi, Ana Elia Ramon Hidalgo, and Solace Sam- Brew. FYF designations are given to students who win Tri-Council scholarships and students who were awarded UGF in 2009/10 transitional year. Faculty of Forestry Strategic Recruitment Fellowships (SRF) were awarded to an additional 15 incoming MSc and PhD students. The SRF program is funded through the Graduate Student Initiative program at UBC. A total of 44 Forestry graduate students received University Awards (FYF-GES, FYF, SRF or Affiliated Fellowships) worth $452,575, which accounted for 29% of the total received in competitive awards. Endowed, merit-based, Faculty of Forestry awards continue to be a vital resource for our graduate students; in 10/11 40 stu- dents received part of their stipend from these internal awards, despite the downturn in endowment values. One-time gifts through Mary and David Macaree Fellowship and Kathleen and Sheldon Rothwell Fund were awarded to 28 MSc and PhD stu- dents.

Graduate Students Degrees Granted 18 UBC Faculty of Forestry THE FACULTY OF FORESTRY at UBC is characterized by its large number of international undergraduate and graduate students and a range of significant international research and teaching activities. We are committed to further internationalization and better communicating our ongoing successes within UBC, our community and globally. The challenges faced by forests around the globe affect people locally and the issues facing local forests have global impacts. Our future graduates need to understand their role in the context of global forests and environmental issues. We wish to broaden global awareness of both faculty and stu- dents through cross-border experiences and exchange of knowl- edge through international partnerships and collaboration. International Students and Student Exchange UBC’s Faculty of Forestry is one of the most culturally-diverse fac- ulties at UBC. Both our undergraduate and graduate programs attract students from around the world and our international student numbers are growing steadily. Currently international students comprise 17% of the under- graduate student body (representing 16 countries) and 57% of all graduate students (representing 39 countries). We continue our efforts to make international students more aware of our Faculty’s offerings through participation in international recruit- ment activities. We provide students with opportunities for foreign experi- ences through our international exchange programs. Our under- graduate and graduate students can select from 167 institutions in 37 countries that share formal agreements with UBC. During the past year, 10 of our students went on exchange to The Philippines, The United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. We hosted 11 international exchange/visiting students from 6 different countries, including Chile, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand, United Kingdom and United States The Transatlantic Forestry Master dual-degree program (TRANSFOR-M) is a two-year program leading to a European and a Canadian master’s degree in forestry and environmen- tal management. Starting September 2011, 44 students – 24 from Canadian and 20 from European universities – will have an opportunity to participate in the TRANSFOR-M program and earn a dual Canadian and European degree. TRANSFOR-M stu- dents will study modern sustainable forestry and environmental management approaches and gain multicultural perspectives on environmental, economic, and social issues. TRANSFOR-M is funded under the Transatlantic Degree Partnership (TDP) Program by the European Commission (EC) of the European Union and Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC). This project follows from the highly successful EU- and HRSDC-funded TRANSFOR project (2005–2008) that supported student exchanges in forestry and environmental management. TRANSFOR-M is a consortium that comprises three Canadian and four European universities: University of British Columbia, University of New Brunswick, University of Alberta, Albert- Ludwigs-University (Freiburg, Germany), Bangor University (Wales), University of Eastern Finland, and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences Undergraduate international student enrolment by program 2004 – 10 N um be r o f S tu de nt s Forest Sciences Forestry Wood Products Processing Natural Resources Conservation 70 80 90 100 110 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 ‘04 ‘05 ‘06 ‘07 ‘08 ‘09 ‘10 International Forestry hosny El-lakany BSc, MSc, PhD, DSc Director, International Forestry 604.822.6921 hosny.ellakany@ubc.ca Jorma Neuvonen MBA, MSc Director, Special Projects 604.822.2807 jorma.neuvonen@ubc.ca Guangyu Wang BS, MBA, PhD Director, Asian Strategies 604.822.8437 guangyu.wang@ubc.ca Chiara longhi BA, MA Officer, International Recruitment 604.822.9187 chiara.longhi@ubc.ca 2010 Annual Report 19 The Faculty continues to develop strong ties with Chinese forestry universities through the transfer programs in which Chinese students study for two years at home before transfer- ring to UBC Forestry for two years to finish their undergraduate degrees. This transfer program is currently in place with 3 univer- sities in China. In 2010, 15 students from the transfer program studied at UBC, and 25 students were registered in the UBC stream in the partnering universities. These students hope to be admitted to UBC Forestry undergraduate programs in 2011. Our faculty members are involved in teaching these students dur- ing their first two years in China through short teaching mod- ules delivered in China and through video conference lectures from UBC. Nanjing Forestry University (NFU) has implemented curriculum changes that better reflect the equivalent programs in UBC Forestry. Nanjing Forestry University and Beijing Forestry University (BFU) have also been working with us on the Go Global programs. A four-week intensive program offered by NFU will provide an unique opportunity for students to better under- stand local and global forestry issues in China through various activities, including class lectures, field trips in nature reserves, visits to local industries, etc. An individual student exchange program offered by BFU with a full scholarship in China has gone very well. In 2010, as a pilot, we sent one student to China through this program. We are expecting to send two students to, and receive five students from, China in 2011. International Partnership for Forestry Education (IPFE) The International Partnership for Forestry Education (IPFE, www. ipfe.fi) is a global network that assists university-level forestry educators to meet society’s needs. IPFE facilitates partnerships between university forestry educators and other relevant insti- tutions to improve the quality and relevance of forestry educa- tion programs. Our Faculty has a leadership role in IPFE through Dr Hosny El-Lakany, elected Chair, and by hosting the network’s secretariat jointly with the University of Eastern Finland. The Canadian Forest Service has provided financial support to help implement IPFE-related activities. Similarly, the Finnish Ministry of Education has allocated funds to the University of Eastern Finland to help with co-hosting the IPFE secretariat. International Events and Collaboration Faculty members participated in many international events throughout 2010 as reported elsewhere in this document. Hosny El-Lakany, Director of International Forestry, participated in several conferences and international meetings including the 18th Commonwealth Forestry Conference which was held in Edinburgh, and had a special session on forestry education. Led by John Innes, we organized an Asian Forestry section in the 23rd IUFRO World Congress in Seoul in August, 2010, partner- ing with the Chinese Academy of Forestry. The Chair of IPFE was also invited to a make presentation on forestry education at the President’s Forum of the Congress. We hosted a number of international delegations during the year including 23 from China and several others from Asia, Europe and South America. Faculty members also hosted sev- eral visiting faculty members from around the world. We facilitate collaboration between major international research institutions such as CIFOR and ICRAF through Hosny El-Lakany who is a board member of both organiza- tions. The Faculty is also well represented in IUFRO and in the Commonwealth Forestry Association (Dr John Innes serves as its chair) and the Asian Pacific Network for Sustainable Forest Management and Rehabilitation. UBC Forestry has also been actively involved in building edu- cational collaboration between Chinese forestry universities and western universities. Together with the Chinese State Forestry Administration, the Canadian Forest Service, the Chinese Education Association of Forestry, the Association of University Forestry Schools of Canada, Beijing Forestry University, and the International Partnership for Forestry Education, we organized a symposium in May 2010 as a follow up to the Beijing 2008 Symposium. This symposium brought together senior-level administrators of Chinese and Canadian forestry education insti- tutions, and representatives from other international organiza- tions concerned with forestry education. The primary goal of the meeting was to discuss progress with issues and themes that were identified at the Beijing symposium. This symposium pro- vided a forum for reporting on joint educational programs and initiatives and explored future synergies and collaborations in areas of forestry education promotion, enhancing effectiveness of regional forestry education networks, E-learning and course- based master’s graduate programs. Mid-career training for the Indian Forestry Service We are providing top-level leaders of the Indian Forest Service with mid-career training through programs delivered jointly by the UBC Faculty of Forestry, BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, BC Ministry of Environment, and the Canadian Forest Service. Two groups of 30 participants were trained in the summer of 2010. Six more groups of Indian Forest Service personnel will be visiting British Columbia and UBC Forestry in 2011 and 2012. The purpose of these programs is to provide senior Indian Forest Service officers with an increased knowledge of strategic planning, policy making and gover- nance aspects of forest management. Each program starts in India with a one-week orientation involving 60 participants. Half of this group then travels to the US and the other half to British Columbia for an intensive two-week training program. The program concludes with a final week in India where par- ticipants share their experiences in both countries. The training programs are coordinated by a consortium consisting of the UBC Faculty of Forestry, the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs at Syracuse University in New York, the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore and the Indira Gandhi National Forest Academy in Dehradun. Curriculum Development Our new International Forestry master’s degree is designed for students who wish to work in the area of international forestry and land management. Graduates will be equipped with a solid foundation in forestry and land use in combination with interna- tional law and global policies addressing the environment and natural resources management. Dr Hosny El-Lakany is leading the development of this program which is scheduled to start in September 2012.

Starting with rec- ognition of the increasing importance of British Columbia’s First Nations in the forest sector, the strategy is expanding to include the importance of indigenous peoples in all aspects of ecosys- tem management, including conservation policy, land use plan- ning, and park co-management. In British Columbia, the need for First Nations involvement in forested land activities is evident. In November 2004, the Canadian Supreme Court ruled in the Haida and Taku cases that First Nations must be consulted at a strategic level in forestry man- agement. In spite of its view, the Court issued no injunction, and in late May, 2005, the Haida Nation, along with non-Haida com- munity members, blockaded forest operations on Haida Gwaii in protest of actions they felt did not adequately address the public concerns or Aboriginal rights on the island. This eventually led to a land planning agreement. In other cases, BC courts have con- tinued to insist that the government consult and accommodate Aboriginal rights, whether proved or likely to be proved. These and other events contributed to Premier Campbell’s decision to enter into a “New Relationship” with First Nations in BC. Leaders of the First Nations Summit, BC Assembly of First Nations and the Union of BC Indian Chiefs agreed to work on developing the New Relationship. A New Relationship docu- ment described the BC Government’s intent to establish new legislation and policy affecting First Nations rights and access to traditional territories. Implementing the policy in legislation has not occurred, however. Although the extent of the practical effect of the New Relationship remains to be determined, First Nations are gaining greater access to forest resources through Forest and Range Agreements, Forest and Range Opportunity Agreements, the new Forest and Range Consultation and Revenue Sharing Agreements, and other Interim Measures Agreements. Although many of the tenures are non-replaceable or have other drawbacks, progress appears to be occurring. Much remains uncertain, however, because the forest sector is in an extended economic slump, and the consequences of the mountain pine beetle infestation remain uncertain. The challenge remains to increase the number of First Nation Registered Professional Foresters and land managers. The UBC Faculty of Forestry wishes to provide assistance to First Nations and the wider forest community in order to meet these chal- lenges and opportunities through its First Nations strategy. Below is an abbreviated list of achievements over the past year. They are a reflection of strategies and efforts employed to maintain established relationships while fostering new ones. AChIEvEMENtS IN 2010 – 11 • The position of manager of aboriginal initiatives remained vacant this year. Gordon Prest, formerly employed full-time, provided some recruitment activities under contract. During his “retirement” he continued to serve as co-chair of the First Nations Advisory Council. The other co-chair is Keith Atkinson. • Dr Ronald Trosper from the Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Reservation, Montana, began his seventh year in the Faculty and was promoted to Professor of Aboriginal Forestry. He continued to teach the graduate course FRST 522, “Indigenous Peoples and Forest Land Management,” and the undergraduate course CONS 370, renamed “Aborig- inal Forestry.” This year he also began a new course in Com- munity Forestry, FRST 270. • A total of 8 undergraduate students and 1 graduate Aborigi- nal student were enrolled in forestry programs in 2010- 2011. Three Aboriginal students will receive their bachelor’s degree in forestry in 2011. • In 2005, the Faculty and Malaspina University College for- mally created the First Nations Bridging and Laddering Partnership to offer the first two years of the BSF degree program for block credit transfer to UBC. We continue to implement this partnership, and are looking for ways to encourage Aboriginal students to use this route to UBC. • Dr Trosper was a co-investigator on a completed project, “A Participatory Approach to Aboriginal Tenure Reform in Canada.” The Carrier-Sekani Tribal Council and Stellaquo First Nations participated in this project, which examined Aboriginal tenures and governance. This project has gener- ated a chapter by Dr Trosper and Eddison Lee-Johnson in a book edited by David Natcher and Mark Stevenson, Plan- ning Co-existence: Aboriginal Issues In Forest and Land Use Planning (CCI Press, 2010). • Dr Trosper completed his role as the North American focal point for the Task Force on Traditional Forest Knowledge of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations. He is co-editor, with John Parrotta, of the final report of the Task Force, which is forthcoming as a book, Traditional Forest-Related Knowledge: Sustaining Communities, Eco- systems and Biocultural Diversity (Springer). • In December, 2010, Dr Trosper accepted a new position as Head of the American Indian Studies Program at the Uni- versity of Arizona in Tucson. He begins that position on July 1, 2011.  Aboriginal Forestry Ronald trosper BA, MA, PhD Associate Professor Aboriginal Forestry 604.822.8089 ronald.trosper@ubc.ca. 2010 Annual Report 21 PlANS FOR 2011 – 12 Efforts in 2011 – 2012 begin with recruitment of a replacement for Dr Trosper’s position. In addition, effort will be directed toward funding and implementing the strategic plan and the new community and Aboriginal forestry specialization in the forest resources management degree program. The vision of the plan is as follows: Guided by indigenous values, and in partnership with all British Columbians, the UBC Faculty of Forestry will be a global leader in indigenous forest stewardship, and the building and sharing of forest knowledge for future generations through exceptional learning experiences. The mission is as follows: The Faculty of Forestry will work with the indigenous peoples of British Columbia and throughout the world to enhance participa- tion and success of Aboriginal people in the forest sector, broadly defined. The new plan contains specific targets organized by each of the categories of UBC’s Trek 2010 Vision of the Future: People, Learning, Research, Community and Internationalization.

AChIEvEMENtS IN 2010 – 11 • Successfully hosted an international workshop jointly with Environment Canada “Proactive Adaptation: Challenges and Opportunities for Incorporating Climate Change Response within Sustainable Forest Management”, Feb 14-16, 2011. • The Department has addressed safety as a major issue. As first steps, two actions were taken: We implemented a Field Safety Protocol, requiring graduate students to develop a plan for field safety. Two sessions of Occupational First Aid, Level 1 were held and 36 faculty, staff and students were certified. • Jointly with Forest Sciences, the Senate approved the new stream in Community and Aboriginal Forestry (including the Commerce minor) as part of the forest resources manage- ment program in the BSF degree. • Drs Coops, Meitner and Nelson received ongoing NSERC funding. • Drs Bull and J Nelson received funding from Value Chain Network; Drs LeMay and Marshall received on-going For- ValueNet funding, Stephen Sheppard received funding from GEOIDE national and GRAND national. • New students for the 2+2 program with Nanjing University and Fujian University have arrived and are integrating into the courses. • We launched a new course (CONS 210) “Visualizing Climate Change” for undergraduate students across campus. • Dr David Tindall received support from SSHRC (through the Faculty of Arts) in support of 3 projects: “Climate justice: Paths to an equitable and sustainable BC economy”; “Social movements and social network dynamics: A two-mode organizational network approach” and “Social networks and climate change discourse”. PlANS FOR 2011 – 12 • A search is underway for a replacement for Dr Ronald Tro- sper in the area of Indigenous Forestry. • Dr Bruce Larson steps down as Department Head, plans are being developed to appoint a replacement. • A Department Review will be conducted May 9-11, 2011. • Develop and implement strategy to address gaps in teach- ing and research needs.

Achievements and Plans 38 UBC Faculty of Forestry THE CENTRE FOR ADVANCED WOOD PROCESSING (CAWP) is Canada’s national centre for education, extension and research for the advanced wood products industries. The role of CAWP is to provide support to the BSc (Wood Products Processing) program in the education and training of students with the capacity to lead and drive change in the industry; offer continuing education and lifelong learning programs aimed at enhancing the skills of exist- ing industry employees; provide technical services to improve the product quality and manufacturing efficiency of small and medium enterprises; and to coordinate interdisciplinary applied research. CAWP is funded through an endowment, the CAWP Industry Partnership Program, various project grants, and cost recovery on services. CAWP is supported by a large number of industrial equipment and technology suppliers, whose in-kind contributions of soft- ware, machinery, supplies, and services significantly enhance our facilities and the training and education experiences that CAWP is able to offer. A number of manufacturing companies also sup- port CAWP annually through cash contributions to our industry partnership program. CAWP has an internal management committee, established in 2007, to allow faculty members in the Department of Wood Science to provide input into the activities of CAWP, and it is active in planning and monitoring our technical and educational activities. CAWP also receives guidance from an external Advisory Board consisting of senior personnel from the wood products industry across Canada. Educational Programs The Wood Products Processing program remains the largest degree program in wood technology/wood science in North America. In 2010-11 there were 27 co-op work terms com- pleted, reflecting a well-balanced geographical distribution across Canada in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec. International work terms were completed in Australia, China, Germany, Tasmania, and the United States. The Wood Products Processing program has seen a sharp increase in the number of applications in 2010-11. As of March 2011 there were 151 appli- cants to the program, a figure that is 75% more than our past five year average and 50% more than our previous high. In 2010 a permanent exhibition space was created in the class- room adjacent to the CAWP High Head Manufacturing Lab. The space will be used to showcase student and industry projects, and currently features the prototype model of the Winter Olympic medal podium, which was built at CAWP. It is hoped that this and other enhanced display spaces around CAWP will strengthen and support our recruiting efforts. We are pleased to report that the medal podium project was nominated in May 2011 for a Premier’s Innovation and Excellence Award in the Partnership category. Continuing Education, Communication and Extension CAWP offers two UBC Certificate Programs to industry profes- sionals – the Industrial Finishing Certificate and the Kiln Drying Certificate. In 2010 CAWP began delivering a new Management Skills certificate program on behalf of the Wood Manufacturing Council. The program consists of 8 35-hour online course mod- ules that can be taken by entrepreneurs and management-track employees of wood manufacturing businesses to acquire key management skills. The 8 modules are: Sales and Marketing; Human Resources and Safety; Quality Management & Control; Business Finance & Investment Evaluation; Supply Chain Management; Factory Layout and Equipment Justification; Production Planning; and New Product Development. Over 80 learners took part in the courses during the first year that they were available, and feedback from participants has been very positive. In 2011-12 our aim is to increase uptake even further. This year the number of one-on-one technical assistance projects that CAWP carried out for BC value-added manufac- turing companies increased dramatically, from just three in 2010-11 to twenty in 2011-12. Most of these were supported with funding provided by Forestry Innovation Investment as part of CAWP’s role in the Business Innovation Partnership (BIP), a joint program delivered in cooperation with BC Wood Specialties Group and FPInnovations to provide business devel- opment services to the value added wood products industry in British Columbia. A further 2 projects were supported by a pro- vincial value-added wood processing funding program for First Nations. The projects spanned every sub-sector of the value added wood industry and included: Prototyping of furniture and storage products using 5-axis CNC technology; develop- ment of curved wood windows; testing glue bonds for mixed- species windows; evaluation and testing of stains for use with natural oil-finished flooring; processing trials using thermally- modified lumber; development of a press machine for a new engineered wood beam; selection of energy-efficient buiding products for a made-in-BC passive home; development of dry- ing schedules for exotic submerged timbers logged from the Panama Canal, and; prototyping of factory-built housing using CAWP’s Hundegger K2 beam processing machine and advanced 3D CAD-CAM software. CAWP also held successful seminars for designers, architects, and manufacturers, and has received requests from the design community for follow-up events and services. The BIP program underwent an independent audit early in 2011, and was found to yield extremely positive ben- efits to industry, with return on dollars invested of between 9:1 Centre for Advanced Wood Processing Iain Macdonald BA, MSc Managing Director 604.822.1472 iain.macdonald@ubc.ca Kirsty Cameron, BA Administrative Support Clerk Jason Chiu, BSc Specialist, Technical linda Dom, BA, MA Co-op Coordinator and Recruitment Officer Karen Fisher, BEd Administrator lawrence Günther Technician vincent leung, BSc Supervisor, Technical Facilities Winfield liu, BA Specialist, Computers 2010 Annual Report 39 and 13:1. In the coming year CAWP aims to maintain activity levels at around 20 company-specific projects, and to expand product development support to industrial designers who are interested in working with wood. CAWP’s highly successful Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA)-funded capacity-building project in South Africa was formally completed in the summer of 2010. The collabora- tion with Stellenbosch University is continuing, and CAWP and Stellenbosch University are working on a proposed new capacity building projects for West Africa and Francophone Africa, subject to funding. Research CAWP’s role as an integrated structure within the Department of Wood Science is to act as a conduit between the industry and academic communities in order to ensure that applied research activities within the department and CAWP fully reflect indus- try needs. CAWP is active in helping industry find solutions to current competitive challenges by linking them with research- ers who may be able to provide avenues for change. Several faculty members of the Department of Wood Science continue to receive funding for research projects from the NRCan- CFS Value-to-Wood program. These projects cover a wide range of themes, from corporate social responsibility to advanced fin- ishing and building systems to forest certification and life cycle analysis to advanced wood composites development. PlANS FOR 2011 – 12 • Increase industry support for CAWP through our industry partnership program. • Maintain current activity levels for CAWP’s Business Innova- tion Partnership activities for BC companies. • Increase awareness and uptake of the WMC Management Training Certificate Program by Canadian and international audiences. • Launch a new introductory-level e-learning course on the forest products value chain. • Obtain funding for new education and training capacity- building projects in West and Francophone Africa. • Continue collaboration with South African university part- ners to enhance education, training and industry services for South Africa’s wood processing sector. • Enhance informational displays within the CAWP public areas and meeting spaces to highlight innovative industry and stu- dent projects • Leverage existing curricula and educational technologies to offer innovative new training programs in response to indus- try needs.

However, few estab- lished or new scientists have the background or training to be as effective as they could, given that opportunities for media inter- actions are often limited, occasionally intimidating and typically arise short on short notice. Thus, to improve the effectiveness of communicating conservation-related research at UBC, the CACR and Faculty of Forestry hosted Nancy Baron and four internation- ally-known science journalists in a two-day event featuring an evening lecture by Baron and an intensive workshop including four leading science journalists, all aimed at mentoring conser- vation scientists in techniques designed to improve their ability to ‘get out of the Ivory Tower’ and become more effective com- municators to media professionals and the public. Nancy Baron, lead trainer for the Aldo Leopold Leadership Program, has won many accolades internationally for her accomplishments in sci- ence communication, and is the author of the recently published ‘Escape from the Ivory Tower: A Guide to Making Your Science Matter’ (Island Press). Five graduate students and 15 faculty received intensive media training that has so far helped con- tribute to three interviews on CBC Radio’s highly popular ‘Quirks and Quarks’ weekly science hour, including interviews by Peter Arcese on the impacts of abundant deer on biodiversity, Nicholas Coops on the future of lodgepole pine in BC, and PhD candidate Erica Eliason on the future of Fraser River Salmon, all of which can be heard by searching the Quirks & Quarks archive (www. cbc.ca/news/technology/quirks-quarks-blog/archives.html). Werner and hidelgard hesse Graduate Research Award in Field Ornithology The CACR is proud to share honors in awarding $12,000 annu- ally to outstanding graduate students engaged in field ornithol- ogy as a consequence of a generous bequest to UBC by Werner Hesse on the advice of Peter Arcese. Werner and Hildegard Hesse were avid participants in, and patrons of, wildlife research. Their passion for wild birds was inspired by night classes given by Ian McTaggert-Cowan in the 1950s. The Hesses became leaders in amateur ornithology and generous supporters of long-term studies of bird populations in the Georgia Basin. The Hesses sur- veyed birds in the Canadian arctic, compiled BC’s Christmas Bird Counts for over 20 years, and had a special concern for the harm- ful effects of human development on bird habitats and popula- tions. The CACR was delighted to contribute to the development of this endowed award and we encourage you to visit the Hesse webpage http://hesse-award.sites.olt.ubc.ca/. training Global Stewards to Incorporate local Knowledge CACR hosted a short course with the Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC) in Sweden in October 2010 to examine tools for understanding spatial dynamics of social-ecological systems and to improve learning materials for the capstone course of our major in Global Perspectives. Sarah Gergel also worked with researchers at SRC to develop and trial lab exercises on spatial resilience, graph theory and social networks for inclusion in the upcoming, second edition of the Learning Landscape Ecology. Several PhD students from UBC traveled to Stockholm to par- ticipate in the course, supported by UBC’s TLEF program, and deliver a series of global case studies which incorporate and sup- port local and indigenous perspectives on resilience and ecosys- tem services into our curricula.

Dr Fred Bunnell and Dean Clark Binkley established the Centre for Applied Conservation Biology to address these challenges in 1991. Our associated faculty, stu- dents and postdoctoral fellows have since built a reputation for excellence in applied research on biodiversity conservation and land management in Canada and internationally. Our new title, adopted under the leadership of Dr John Innes, encourages the inclusion of social and economic approaches in applied conservation research. Since 2008, the CACR has continued to draw researchers from across campus, Canada and internationally to engage in and disseminate applied research, facilitate graduate education, and innovate in the areas of species, ecosystem and landscape-level conservation planning under the directorship of Peter Arcese and Sarah Gergel as scarce funds allow. 2010 Annual Report 41 Research Groups News Climate Change and Biodiversity Fred Bunnell and colleagues continue work on climate change and biodiversity issues, and to assist BC Ministries and the for- est industry with application of the Provincial Conservation Framework. Fred received special honors for this work as the 2010 recipient of the Ian McTaggart-Cowan Award for Excellence in Biology (Association of Professional Biologists) and for the Best Article of 2010 for BC Forest Professional. Conservation and Development in Africa Rob Kozak, Joleen Timko and colleagues continued to develop AFRICAD to pursue conservation-based approaches addressing poverty alleviation and local livelihood development in forested areas of significant biodiversity value in sub-Saharan Africa.

Remote Sensing, Biodiversity and terrestrial Ecosystem Mapping Nicholas Coops continues to lead the application of remote sensing to forest growth and biodiversity monitoring, includ- ing mapping mountain pine beetle damage and biodiversity using satellite data, as detailed in over 30 journal publications in 2010. Of recent interest is the integration of hyperspectral remote sensing and LIDAR data to produce a TEM-based classi- fication of Gulf Islands National Park Reserve in BC, and its appli- cation to predicting species avian richness and mapping of rare plant communities. In collaboration with Coops, the Gergel Lab applied imagery from the QuickBird high-spatial resolution sat- ellite to enhance TEM in coastal BC and explore the role of TEM misclassification error on estimates of ecosystem productivity.

Kathy and colleagues produced 7 journal papers in 2010 on these topics and took their models global to exam- ine similarities in cavity communities in tropical and temperate forests, and to document the dynamics of cavity nesters popula- tions in post-beetle epidemic forests. Belowground Ecosystem Group’s Soil Biodiversity Research Sue Grayston, Cindy Prescott, Suzanne Simard, Chris Chanway and students continue to demonstrate links between the com- position and diversity of soil microbial communities and key processes in carbon and nutrient cycling in forest ecosystems, including fertilizing forests as a means of increasing seques- tration of carbon in soil, recreating a functioning forest soil in reclaimed oil sands sites in Alberta, and using stable isotope probing to identify keystone species in soil food webs. The group produced more than 20 research papers in 2010 on these topics, including papers in Global Change Biology, New Phytologist and Journal of Ecology. Stream and Riparian Research laboratory John Richardson continues to lead collaborators on the ecology and management of riparian-stream ecosystems, including the influence of reserve strips, ecology of invertebrates and amphib- ians, and resource limitation in streams. See the details of 12 recent papers on these topics at http://faculty.forestry.ubc.ca/ richardson/home.html. Centre for Forest Gene Conservation Sally Aitken and colleagues at the Centre study the popula- tion and ecological genetic structure of indigenous forest tree species to assess the current degree of genetic conservation in nature reserves and collections, and to evaluate genetic diversity in populations of forest trees to meet current and future envi- ronmental challenges. The CFGC is also the home of the climate model ClimateBC now being used by researchers internationally to conduct research on climate change mitigation strategies and conservation planning, and to predict the fate of BC’s native tree populations and ecological zones in a rapidly changing climate. See www.genetics.forestry.ubc.ca/cfcg/ for their most recent products. Salmon Migration and Fish/Forestry Research Scott Hinch and colleagues use physiological assays, telem- etry and lab experiments to study salmon migration and swim performance to reveal limitations on ocean and river survival. Recent and long-term field experiments by this research group have contrasted south coastal and northern interior stocks to study the impacts of climate change fish populations and the influence of recreational fishers on in-river survival.

Faculty Publications 62 UBC Faculty of Forestry IT IS WITH THE SUPPORT of our many alumni, donors and friends that the Faculty can continue to promote itself as a world leader in research and education. Contributions from the community ensure the Faculty is able to offer innovative programs, con- duct leading-edge research and raise the profile of the practice of forestry within this province and beyond. We are proud and very thankful to report that for the period April 2010 to March 2011 the Faculty of Forestry raised over $1.7 million in gifts, con- tributions and pledges in support of student awards, research, endowments and upgrading of our facilities. Forestry Alumni Support The Faculty of Forestry would like to thank our alumni for their generous and continued support of our programs and students. This year’s annual appeal raised over $55,000 in support of proj- ects such as the Dean of Forestry Scholarship Fund ($7,859), the John Worrall Alumni Bursary in Forestry ($6,635) and the Loon Lake Redevelopment Project ($23,821). The Faculty would also like to recognize the contributions of numerous alumni volunteers and thank them for their continued dedication to the many events and Faculty activities throughout the year. We look forward to welcoming you back in 2011/2012. hIGhlIGhtS IN 2010 – 11 The following events, activities and milestones were reached this year: • The Alumni and Friends Day at the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest and Loon Lake was held on May 6, 2010 in conjunc- tion with the annual undergraduate Spring Camp. Attendees were given the option of choosing their own adventure at this year’s event, with activities such as guided hikes around the lake, a walk through the old growth forest, and a tour of the newly redeveloped facilities at Loon Lake all on offer. Fol- lowing the tour, alumni and guests were treated to a hearty BBQ dinner in the Dining Hall. • A milestone reunion celebration to recognize 5 and 10 year reunions was held November 9, 2010 at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver. This intimate dinner with the Dean encour- aged a lively dialogue and a wonderful opportunity for class- mates to reconnect. • The Faculty hosted an alumni breakfast at the ABCFP AGM in Vancouver on February 25, 2011. We had a fantastic turn- out of graduates from throughout the years and across the forestry profession, who raised a number of important issues during an open discussion with the Dean. This event was such a success that we look forward to hosting it again next year. • To commemorate World Forestry Day in the International Year of Forests, the Faculty held a tree planting ceremony on March 21, 2011. The ceremony was overseen by John Innes, UBC Dean of Forestry; Sarah Morgan-Silvester, UBC Chancel- lor; Steve Thomson, Minister, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Operations; Liang Shugen, Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Vancouver; and Ashok Das, Consul General of India in Vancouver. A Davidia involu- crata was planted, a species native to China, to symbolize the Faculty’s close ties to Asia. • In the spring of 2011, a new student initiative was funded by the Moss Rock Park Foundation to support student educa- tion and outreach opportunities at the Malcolm Knapp, Alex Fraser and Aleza Lake Research Forests. Two students are placed in each forest for a period of four months, allowing the students to put their education to work in the field and gain real-world research and practical experience. • The Forestry Class of 1957 held a reunion at the Honeymoon Bay Resort in September 2010. Eighteen graduates plus a number of spouses assembled for a 3-day get together to, according to the attendees, “re-tell old stories and invent a few new ones.” Highlights of the reunion included a tour of the Ministry of Forests’ Cowichan Lake Research Station and a visit to the oldest thinning trial on the west coast. The class plans to reunite at the same resort for the next reunion. • Wood Products Processing graduates from the classes of 1999, 2000 and 2001 gathered for a reunion in July 2010 to celebrate 10 years since graduation. Roughly 20 alumni were in attendance for cocktails and dinner in downtown Vancouver. • This year we were a proud to announce the establishment of the following awards: The Roy Sworder First Nations Bursary, the Mike Sauze Forest Operations Bursary, and the Wright Scholarship in Forestry. • The Faculty appointed Jenna McCann as the Alumni Rela- tions Manager for the Faculty of Forestry. This appointment symbolizes a renewed commitment to supporting and con- necting with our Forestry alumni. • The Faculty would like to extend its thanks and appreciation to Christoph Clodius for his hard work and dedication to the Faculty’s Development and Alumni Relations program over the past three years. Christoph left the Faculty in December 2010 to take on a new challenge as a fundraising recruiter.

Once again, on behalf of the students, faculty and staff, thank you to all those who have contributed their time, interest and support for the Faculty throughout the last year. We look for- ward to working with you again in 2011/12. Faculty Development and Alumni Production Information This Annual Report was designed and produced in- house using Adobe InDesign CS4.
