Occasional Paper Series


"Our environment is our future" 
Overview

The Natural Resources and Environmental Studies Institute Occasional Paper Series publish papers and symposia sponsored or produced by members of the Institute. NRESi Occasional Papers are intended to complement NRESi Research Extension Notes in providing a way for NRESi members to publish regionally relevant information freely available and in an accessible format.  NRESi Occasional Papers are more position, idea, concept, and opinion oriented while Research Extension Notes are more data oriented. In addition, each spring the NRESi (with the support of Northwood Pulp & Paper (now Canfor)) hosts an Annual Lecture Series and the written version of the presentations are often published as part of this Occasional Paper Series. More information formatting and submission of Occasional Papers can be found here.
