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
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.
Establishment of PSP network to monitor stand dynamics and establish yield curves for stands killed by MPB
As a result of significant in-flights of mountain pine beetles coming from British Columbia in 2006 and 2009, as well as subsequent local production, there are widely distributed pine dominated stands throughout Alberta that have been significantly affected by MPB-caused mortality.
This project develops population recovery targets based on habitat, and non-invasive techniques for monitoring grizzly bear reproductive performance.
Can forestry and silviculture practices help increase caribou functional habitat in west-central Alberta?
This project will evaluate and mitigate industrial impacts on west-central Alberta Caribou herds.
Potential Impacts of Mountain Pine Beetle and Management Actions on Grizzly Bear and Caribou Populations in West-Central Alberta
This project will determine how MPB-killed stands are impacting caribou and grizzly bear habitat.
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.
