Habitat integrity and biodiversity
The effects of habitat fragmentation on biodiversity and the role of intact forests in mitigating biodiversity loss and climate change
Forest Carbon and Ecosystem Services
We are working to understand the role of harvesting on the short and long-term carbon dynamics of BC’s forested ecosystems. Researchers at CS Lab have been collecting data across BC to understand how silvicultural systems (i.e. variable retention vs clearcut) affect carbon flux among these forests.
The CSL is investigating how climate change is affecting conservation planning and the analysis of the different conservation approaches should go further using dynamic strategies to adapt to the present and future climate scenarios
The CS lab is undertaking a range of research to improve our understanding of how cumulative environmental pressures are distributed and changing across broad spatial scales in Canada, South America and global
