The UBC Faculty of Forestry addresses global challenges of habitat loss, over-harvesting, and climate change impacting biodiversity. Research on species like Chinook salmon and mountain caribou aims to devise science-based strategies for sustainable management, crucial for supporting both ecosystems and the livelihoods reliant on natural resources.
Examples of our research
- Salmonid ecology, behavior, physiology and stress during migration
- Human-wildlife coexistence
- Alpine wildlife and mountain ecosystems
- Protected area design and biodiversity conservation strategies
