Description:
This progress report summarizes and describes the field activities undertaken during Year 1 of this project in 2005/06, and presents results and discussion of initial data analyses. Plans for Year 2 activities are also outlined. Final synthesis of Lucille and Sicamous data will be carried out in 2006/07. FSP Research Project Y061079 is a two-year UNBC research project funded by the Forest Science Program. This project is examining forest productivity and stand development in two active ESSF silvicultural systems study areas in B.C. These study areas include the Lucille Mountain project study area (EP 1119.01) near McBride, BC and the Sicamous Creek Project study area, located near Sicamous, BC. Key references for these projects include Jull and Stevenson (2001), and Hollstedt and Vyse (1997) respectively. The goal of this research is enhance our understanding of subalpine stand dynamics, under unmanaged stand conditions, and in response to silvicultural / harvesting treatments.
