Abstract

This two-year project is supported by mainly by an NSERC Cooperative Research and Development Grant for $250,000 which matches equal contributions from the forest industry (19 companies collectively), and B.C. government agencies, Forest Renewal B.C. and its successor, Forestry Innovation Investment (FII). Award of NSERC funding for the final six months is contingent on my obtaining continuing support from FII.
The research on forest insects supported by this funding has three objectives:
1. to make fundamental discoveries based on rigorous experiments;
2. to identify those discoveries that have practical potential in forest pest management; and
3. to work with clients to develop, test and implement new technology arising from fulfillment of the first two objectives.
Pursuit of these objectives in 10 major projects and four minor ones has led to many deliverables that fall into two broad categories, Contributions to Scientific and Technical Knowledge, and Operational Deliverables.
