The Sicamous Creek project is a long term interdisciplinary study of high elevation ESSF ecosystems and their response to disturbance through logging and site preparation. In the second phase of the project we continued with all basic ecosystems measurements, including climate, songbirds, seedfall, natural regeneration, and nutrient flux; added measurements of CWD to long term plots; continued studies of mycorrhizal function in these ecosystems. We also prepared several reports for technical review and submitted several for publication. A number of papers prepared in previous years were published this year. Numerous poster and oral presentations were given to research gatherings and technical forestry meetings in the province and elsewhere.
