Christmas Tree Farm takes root thanks to UNBC Forestry Club

UNBC’s Forestry Club is branching out into a unique business venture – a Christmas Tree Farm.

It’s a project that when the trees are sold, will produce income for the Forestry Club to sponsor scholarships, charities, and donations of Christmas trees by 2026.

A mix of spruce and Douglas-Fir seedlings will be planted on a 3.4-hectare parcel of land located on the UNBC campus, north of the Teaching and Learning Centre along an access road/walking trail.

Belowground Plant Interactions: Can Lessons Learned from Conifer Forests and Biodiversity Hotspots Help to Successfully Manage Mixedwoods?

Date:
Friday, March 21, 2014 - 15:30 to 16:30
Location:
8-166

My research program integrates plant and fungal functional ecology in order to better understand plant species coexistence and ecosystem functioning.

First, I give some background on ectomycorrhizal fungi (EMF), EMF networks, and root-derived carbon (C) sequestration in soils. Ectomycorrhizal fungi in many temperate and boreal forests drive belowground C and nutrient cycling, and influence plant interactions.

From Pattern to Process to Management: Understanding Species Interactions in the Face of Global Change

Date:
Friday, March 14, 2014 - 15:30 to 16:30
Location:
8-166

My general interests broadly lie in applied ecology and conservation.  However, I am particularly interested in the environmental and biological mechanisms driving patterns of regeneration, mortality and growth of forests at multiple spatial and temporal scales.

UNBC’s 1st Physi-O-lymics 2014

Date:
Thursday, March 13, 2014 - 10:00 to 14:00
Location:
Atrium of Teaching and Learning Centre

Students taking Animal Physiology (BIOL321) this term worked feverishly on their ‘Physi-O-lympics’ projects over the past weeks.
The inaugural ‘Physi-O-lympics’ are a newly established Biol321 course component, inspired by the recent Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.
