Applied Conservation Science

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
