Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Forest Science Program
FIA Project M086044

    Stand dynamics following mountain pine beetle outbreaks in central British Columbia
Project lead: Alfaro, Rene (Natural Resources Canada)
Contributing Authors: Axelson, Jodi N.; Alfaro, René I.; Hawkes, Brad; Shore, Terence L.
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Forest Science Program
During 2007-2008 year we will adhere to the original plan. Project is on schedule. In year one we collected and analyzed stand dynamics data for even-aged stands. In the second year we will re-locate original CFS plots, conduct field work to obtain stand reconstruction data, summarize field data, describe stand dynamics of even-aged stands following beetle outbreaks, run preliminary stand models for uneven age stands, compare results between even and un-even aged stands in terms of stand dynamics and model simulation results, prepare decision support indicating future yield under different beetle scenarios, and will produce a final report.
