2012 – FORREX (Series 28)

The most demonstrable effects of climate change may be shifts in natural disturbance regimes. A major challenge facing natural resource managers and policymakers in BC will be adapting post-disturbance land management decisions and activities to address these shifts. This FORREX series offers a synthesis of the best available research and experiential and traditional ecological knowledge on the impacts and responses to forest successional patterns, watershed processes, biodiversity and wildlife, forest carbon, and human values (economic, social, and cultural) and communities including First Nations.
