Tipping Point Reached? Harvesting (rate and area) and climate change have led to a dramatic 95% population decline in Northern Goshawk populations across central and northwestern British Columbia. In response to this, forest managers across the region are working together to develop a stewardship strategy to try to prevent the loss of this species. I will discuss this strategy and also describe strategies for managing biodiversity and robust ecosystems in second growth forests and how to create attributes that support mature - old growth species within the context of the working forest.
The Natural Resources & Environmental Studies Institute (NRESi) at UNBC hosts a weekly lecture series at the Prince George campus. Anyone from the university or wider community with interest in the topic area is welcome to attend. Presentations are also made available to remote participants through Livestream (Channel 1). Go to http://www.unbc.ca/nres-institute/colloquium-webcasts to view the presentation remotely.
Past NRESi colloquium presentations and special lectures can be viewed on our video archive, available here.
