Draft agenda

One of the world's largest forest management experiments, the EMEND Project has been breaking new ground since its initiation in 1998. This multi-disciplinary, collaborative project site is located near Peace River, Alberta, and is the product of a partnership between the University of Alberta, Daishowa-Marubeni International, Canfor, and the Government of Alberta.

This research symposium will highlight the achievements of senior researchers and graduate students who are investigating the effects of variable retention harvest and other landscape variables on biodiversity. A series of talks will address individual projects that are ongoing or have been completed, with implications for sustainable forest management. This workshop will wrap up with a discussion tying together common themes and exploring potential synergies and applications.

Sustainable forest management is a complex task - discover how the EMEND Project is putting it to the test. Register for this free event today!
