An examination of the threats and risks to forests arising from invasive alien species by Emina Krcmar( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report reviews problems presented by invasive alien species to forestry and forest ecosystems in Canada. The information collected and presented supports integrated, interdisciplinary development of policy for dealing with invasive alien species in the framework of sustainable forest management. Through a general analysis of invasive alien species and the use of specific cases, the report seeks to examine the threats and risks to Canada's forest sector and ecosystems arising from invasive alien species; understand both the ecological and economic impacts that invasive alien species have on the forest sector and ecosystems, across the globe and in Canada; analyze pathways of introductions and their relationships with trade; examine management options for preventing new incursions and for early detection of alien invaders if incursions occur; outline institutional frameworks and existing regulatory systems, and identify potential difficulties in addressing invasive alien forest species, and identify possible solutions and recommendations.--Document

Impacts of climate change on mountain pine beetle habitat connectivity in western Canada by W. G Riel( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents the results of a multi-year connectivity modeling experiment initiated in 2007 to better understand the movement potential of mountain pine beetle (MPB) in Alberta and Saskatchewan pine forests. In the first year, spatial models of highly susceptible pine forest connectivity were developed for Alberta and Saskatchewan. The following year, the study focused solely on Alberta pine forests as the investigation turned to examine the effect that different pine species have on the connectivity model in the third year (2009-10), the influence of climate on the landscape connectivity in Alberta was explored. To investigate the impacts of possible climate changes, minimum planar graphs were developed for the Alberta pine forests based on a modified stand susceptibility index.--Document
Mountain pine beetle range expansion : assessing the threat to Canada's boreal forest by evaluating the endemic niche : final report by K. P Bleiker( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For this report the authors investigated whether an endemic niche exists for the mountain pine beetle (MPB) in north-western Alberta, a region east of the Rocky Mountains that was recently invaded by beetles. Their approach was to sample endemic or endemic-incipient MPB populations in the region in situ, including the assemblage of secondary bark beetles with which the MPB may interact. The objectives of this project were threefold: (i) determine the potential for MPB to persist at endemic levels east of the Rockies; (ii) if persistence is possible, determine the rate of population increase or decrease to assess the potential for eruptions and spread; and (iii) provide data to existing and emergent decision support tools to re-parameterize, where appropriate, to accommodate MPB dynamics in a new habitat.--Document
A synthesis of the hydrological consequences of large-scale mountain pine beetle disturbance by Markus Schnorbus( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current synthesis is a review of research examining the effects of large-scale mountain pine beetle (MPB)-related disturbance conducted predominantly over the past five years. The emphasis is on research that explicitly examines the impact of beetle kill (or biotic disturbance in general) and the cumulative effects of large scale salvage harvesting operations in response to beetle kill. In general, forest disturbance has been found to increase snow accumulation and melt, reduce interception loss and evaporation, and increase runoff and stream flow.--Document
Mountain pine beetle survey in the Peace Region of British Columbia and adjacent areas in Alberta by Kevin Pellow( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 2008 to 2010, the Canadian Forest Service (CFS) conducted late spring surveys of MPB infestations in the Peace Region of British Columbia to determine changes in population and infestation levels based on attack and brood densities in infested trees. During 2009 and 2010, similar data was collected by the Alberta Sustainable Resource Development (SRD) on post-winter mountain pine beetle (MPB) survival in north-central Alberta. Overwintering population success was determined based on two rating systems of R-values: the Canadian Forest Service Forest Insect and Disease Survey (FIDS) system of the CFS, and the SRD system. R-value was calculated by summing all live mountain pine beetles of various life stages for every plot. The British Columbia and Alberta survey data (the R-values) were combined to determine the distribution of overwintering population success. During 2009 and 2010, the overwintering MPB population success in the Peace Region of British Columbia and adjacent Alberta was based on interpolated maps of SRD ratings of infestations. For comparison, a map for each rating system was created from the 2010 surveys of British Columbia and Alberta.--Document
Canada's boreal forest economy : economic and socioeconomic issues and research opportunities by Bryan E. C Bogdanski( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canada's forest economy is heavily dependent on boreal forest resources. Conservative estimates put the contribution of the boreal forest resources to the Canadian forest economy at about $40 billion in revenue and 128 000 jobs, or about 40% of the total forest economy. The boreal region is also home to significant agriculture and mining economies, as well as tourism industries. This region also provides immense environmental and social goods and services, as well as being home to a significant population of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples. In the coming years, new challenges and opportunities face the boreal forest-based economies. These challenges originate internally, such as increased demand for environmental and social values, and externally, such as increased competition in international markets. Unfortunately, there are considerable information and knowledge gaps regarding many aspects of the boreal forest economy and society. Economic research in the areas of forest land management, integrated resource land management, forest protection, boreal regional economies, transportation, non-timber forest values, climate change impacts and adaptation, and public policy will help fill some of the information and knowledge gaps. This will enable development of effective public policies and industrial strategies in the areas of resource development, social development and environmental protection to ensure that the boreal forest region continues along a sustainable path."--Conclusion
Heat disinfestation of decay fungi found in post-mountain pine beetle wood by Adnan Uzunovic( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This research focuses on studying the heat tolerance of sap-rot and heart-rot fungi found in beetle-killed wood. Specifically, the authors evaluate the 56/30 schedule and other temperature/time combinations. They also investigate whether slow air-drying increased the heat tolerance of the fungi. The generated data are expected to fill an important science gap on the fungi found in beetle-affected trees."--Document
Modelling bioenergy uptake in the British Columbia fibre allocation and transport model by Bradley Kenneth Stennes( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The forest sector in western Canada has faced a number of important changes on both the supply and demand sides; most importantly, the outbreak of mountain pine beetle and a contraction in important traditional markets. We have developed a model of the British Columbia (BC) forest sector with sufficient detail on both supply and demand to examine the effects of these changes on the main forest fibre streams across the province. In this report we provide details on the structure of the BC fibre allocation and transport model and, through scenario analysis of increasing bioenergy capacity in the province, we estimate the costs of procuring feedstock for these plants. We also demonstrate that it is necessary to consider the interaction between utilization of woody feedstock for pellet production and electricity generation and its traditional uses. With our modelled increase in bioenergy capacity, the expanding need for biofeedstock is met by a combination of processed woody debris (collected at harvesting sites) and/or bidding fibre away from existing users
Forest health and mortality of advance regeneration following canopy tree mortality caused by the mountain pine beetle by Kathy J Lewis( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The overall purpose of this project was to assess the forest health of residual stands over a range of stand types with varying lengths of time since attack by the mountain pine beetle (MPB). Specific objectives were: to determine the existing biotic and abiotic forest health agents that pose significant threats to stand regeneration via advance regeneration under current climatic scenarios; to identify potential biotic and abiotic forest health agents that pose significant threats to stand regeneration via advance regeneration under predicted future climatic scenarios; to quantify mortality of advance regeneration by forest health agent where possible; to determine whether or not the health, vigor, and form of remaining advance regeneration are sufficient to consider the remaining stand stocked without further silvicultural intervention; and to quantify the levels of decay in advance regeneration due to tree-fall scarring.--Document
Secondary manufacturing of solid wood products in British Columbia, 2006 : structure, economic contribution and changes since 1990 by Bradley Kenneth Stennes( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British Columbia is facing ongoing challenges in providing historic levels of production and employment opportunities based on a model of commodity production from the forest industry. Like many jurisdictions and other industries, it is seeking to expand value-added, or what we term secondary manufacturing in wood products. Given the significance of forestry to British Columbia, it is important that decision-makers seeking to promote an expansion in secondary manufacturing have accurate information. This report presents the results of a survey of the British Columbia secondary manufacturing wood industry for 2006. The survey gathered operational, employment, production, marketing and financial information on nine business types, with supplemental information added for a tenth, firms producing panelboards. The information is analyzed to provide both a quantitative and qualitative picture of the current structure and significance of secondary manufacturing, and sector trends through comparison to previous surveys. Overall, the size of the sector is similar to what it was in the last survey conducted for 1999, but the relative economic contribution has shifted away from remanufacturing and towards engineered wood products and cabinets, both business types which contribute to the strong domestic building boom in British Columbia
Markets for forest products following a large disturbance : opportunities and challenges from the mountain pine beetle outbreak in western Canada( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mountain pine beetle outbreak in the Interior forests of British Columbia that began in the late 1990s continues to kill lodgepole and other pine trees across the region and into western Alberta. Beginning in 2001 the provincial government increased available timber supply on Crown-owned lands and encouraged the forest industry to focus harvesting efforts on lodgepole pine. The timber supply uplift and pine-focused harvest strategies raise several questions with regard to the response by the BC industry to the increased supply of pine timber and the impact on timber and product market prices. Following the slowdown in many of BC's major markets, further opportunities to utilize MPB-killed wood inventories need to be examined. This paper describes recent wood market trends and highlights market opportunities and limitations for MPB-killed lodgepole pine. We also highlight key information gaps and uncertainties with regard to fully understanding the possible market and industry impacts of increasing pine harvests to address the mountain pine beetle outbreak, and the subsequent decrease in future timber supply. The appendices include a comprehensive listing of elasticity estimates important to any economic analysis of wood product markets
Mountain pine beetle : a synthesis of the ecological consequences of large-scale disturbances on sustainable forest management, with emphasis on biodiversity by Fred L Bunnell( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document provides a synthesis of recently completed studies to assess the ecological consequences of forest management after attack by mountain pine beetle or other large-scale disturbances. Studies are assessed for their contributions to gaps in knowledge previously identified in the Mountain Pine Beetle Initiative Working Paper "Evaluating effects of large scale salvage logging for mountain pine beetle on terrestrial and aquatic vertebrates," which was published in 2004. This report focuses on studies developed through the federal Mountain Pine Beetle Initiative, the federal Mountain Pine Beetle Program, and the complementary BC Forest Science Program. Relevant information from other jurisdictions is sometimes included to augment those studies. Topics examined are: the impacts of beetle kill and salvage operations on habitat attributes; the impacts of beetle kill and salvage operations on attendant processes, such as snag fall rates, light interception, and snow accumulation; and the wildlife response to large-scale beetle outbreaks and management strategies. For each of these three topics, we provide a summary of: research to date; pertinent findings to date; and gaps in research
The role of tariff and non-tariff trade barriers in the global forest products trade : a Canadian perspective( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Previous studies have examined the economic impacts of trade measures on forest product markets. Most have focused on either tariffs or quantitative measures such as import or export quota restrictions. There is growing concern about the impact of the far less obvious non-tariff trade measures on the global forest product sector. The objective of this study is to fill a gap, and to estimate trade and economic impacts of nontariff barriers and compare them to the impacts of tariffs. A database of ad valorem equivalent estimates for a set of well-defined non-tariff trade restrictions is incorporated into a global forest products trade model. Non-tariff barriers are found to be less common than tariffs but are found to have similar or bigger aggregate impacts than tariffs do on trade, production, producer revenues, consumer expenditures, and value added. Impacts of reducing tariff and non-tariff barriers are often different across regions and products. This study strives to underscore the importance of analysing both types of trade policy and the need for continuing comprehensive trade liberalization.--Document
Quantifying the water resource impacts of mountain pine beetle and associated salvage harvest operations across a range of watershed scales : hydrologic modelling of the Fraser River Basin by Markus Schnorbus( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents the results of a project done to assess the potential for impacts and changes to the peak-flow regime throughout various sub-basins of the Fraser River Watershed. The vast size and the physical complexity of the Fraser River Basin make it extremely difficult to directly measure the hydrologic effects of beetle kill and salvage harvesting. As a result, a hydrology model has been used to assess the hydrologic consequences of the current outbreak. The project is part of a larger effort in quantifying the water resource impacts of the pine beetle and salvage harvesting across a range of watershed scales.--Includes text from document
Risk assessment of the threat of mountain pine beetle to Canada's boreal and eastern pine forests by Vincent Graham Nealis( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report assesses the threat of the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins) to Canada's boreal and eastern pine forests. It is based on available evidence and expert advice provided by researchers and forest managers at two workshops held in Edmonton, Alberta and Victoria, British Columbia during August and September of 2007"--Document
Decreasing uncertainty in CBM-CFS3 estimates of forest soil carbon sources and sinks through use of long-term data from the Canadian Intersite Decomposition Experiment( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dead organic matter submodel parameters of the Carbon Budget Model of the Canadian Forest Sector 3 (CBM-CFS3) were verified using litterbag decomposition data from the Canadian Intersite Decomposition Experiment (CIDET). This national experiment provided 12 years of decomposition time series data from 18 sites across Canada for calibration of decay parameters for foliar litter (very fast decay pool) and aboveground fine woody debris (fast decay pool). Time series of measured carbon remaining were compared to model predictions to improve the model's decomposition algorithm, which includes base decay rates, temperature response coefficients, and the proportion of carbon transferred from quickly decaying dead organic matter pools to the slow humified pool. A statistical approach was developed to optimize several model parameters simultaneously by minimizing residual errors. For foliar litter, which is contained in the aboveground very fast pool in the CBM-CFS3, the asymptotic form of the decay function used in the model was consistent with the measured time series for both needle and leaf litter. Optimized decay parameters had a smaller base decay rate (0.36 yr-1 at a 10° C reference temperature), a larger temperature quotient (Q10= 2.7), and a slightly larger proportion transferred to the slow pool (0.185) compared to the default model decay parameters. The absolute error between predicted and measured carbon remaining was reduced from 14.1% to 7.6% when the optimized parameters were used in place of the default parameters. Potential model modifications were tested to assess if additional climate variables would further improve model predictions. Adding summer precipitation as a decay modifier and simulating first-year leaching with winter precipitation resulted in modest improvements. For wood blocks, which are contained in the aboveground fast pool in the CBM-CFS3, the data were not well represented by the model's asymptotic form of decay. Instead, colder sites had a linear decay rate and the remaining sites had a variable decay rate that would be better described by a sigmoidal function. Four potential modifications to the decay algorithm were tested to estimate improvements in model predictions of fast pool decay. These included a temperature-dependent time delay, a sigmoidal function for decay, and the addition of a holding pool that had either a delayed transfer or a decayed transfer. These modifications reduced the errors by about 1.9%, 3.4%, 2.2%, and 2.6%, respectively. Their implementation in the model would, however, require the introduction and simulation of additional pools. This effort would be justifiable only if more long-term decay data were available to improve model parameterization. Such data are expected in the future from ongoing long-term decomposition experiments
Historical frequency, intensity and extent of mountain pine beetle disturbance in British Columbia by René I Alfaro( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project used dendrochronology to reconstruct the history of mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonous ponderosae Hopkins) outbreaks over the last two centuries and to describe the relationship of outbreaks to varying climate conditions and fire history. The history of mountain pine beetle outbreaks was reconstructed from increment cores and basal disks collected from 85 stands across British Columbia and Alberta. Using aerial survey data, dendrochronological software was calibrated to detect growth releases that could be attributed to beetle outbreaks. Relationships between beetle outbreaks and climate variability were assessed using instrumental weather data, modelled climate data, and historical reconstructions of climate from tree-ring data. Relationships between the occurrence of beetle outbreaks and fire history were undertaken using several approaches in dendrochronology.--Document
