LanduseKN.ca is Alberta's hub for land use information.
Program & Project Involvement
Its mission comprises three activities: forecasting and monitoring responses to silvicultural treatments, facilitating the scientific development and validation of yield forecasts used by members in managing their tenures; and promoting knowledge, shared responsibility, and cost-effective cooper
The Mixedwood Management Association officially came into existence in 2001 with eight member companies and Alberta Sustainable Resource Development. Hosted by the Alberta Research Council for the first two years and then the University of Alberta until 2015, when it amalgamated with FGrOW.
In April of 2012, Tree Improvement Alberta became a consortium of industry and government representatives under fRI Research. The initial project the Tree Species Adaptation Risk Management project funded by Climate Change and Emissions Management Corporation.
WESBOGY has been operating since 1987 and is now housed at the University of Alberta under the direction of its chair, Dr. Phil Comeau. WESBOGY became a project team of FGrOW on January 1, 2015.
Mountain pine beetle population dynamics in new habitats and climates: The potential for eastern and northern spread in Canada
Warmer weather is driving MPB range expansion, but how well will the beetle take hold in novel habitats?
Comparison of understory burning and mechanical site preparation to regenerate lodgepole pine stands killed by MPB
While detection and control efforts are key to mitigating MPB, it's also important to improve how land managers respond after an attack.
Impacts of mountain pine beetle on hydrology and vegetative redevelopment in lodgepole pine forests of west-central Alberta: Phase II - Ecological responses in the grey attack stage
This project will examine hydrological and vegetation responses in the grey attack stage.
Protecting understory white spruce during removal of overstory aspen will ensure the utilization and release of advanced spruce growth, which will result in a shortened rotation, reduction of reforestation cost, and eventually an increase of timber production per unit of land.
Named in honor of the "father of forest hydrology in Western Canada," this project seeks to capture the value of long-term research and data sets.
The groundwater/ surface water interactions in the headwater streams and the relative importance in controlling the hydrological response to disturbance
This project is part of the Southern Rockies Watershed Project.
Combining Field and LiDAR Modeling Tools to Move Beyond Indicator Based Approaches for Surface Erosion: Simonette as a Test Area for the Foothills Natural Region
This project on riparian mapping aims to improve management and operational efficiency by capitalizing on the high quality remote sensing data available in Alberta.
