Slideshow Presentation in VICTORIA: "BC’s Inland Temperate Rainforest: Upper Fraser Ancient Cedar Stands – A proposed new World Heritage site in B.C." and "The STATUS and ECOLOGY of BC’s South Coast Old-Growth Rainforests"
1) Presentation on the Inland Rainforest and Old-Growth Cedar Stands east of Prince George by Dr. Darwyn Coxson, Ecosystem Science and Management Program, UNBC.
2) Presentation on the NEWEST MAPS and STATUS of the Old-Growth Forests of Vancouver Island and the Southwest Mainland of BC, as well as the Ecology and Politics of these forests, by Ken Wu and TJ Watt of the Ancient Forest Alliance.
Emerging research from the University of Northern BC has highlighted the global rarity of ancient redcedar stands of the upper Fraser River watershed east of Prince George. This forest type within BC's inland temperate rainforest has been heavily impacted by human activities, and few ancient cedar stands remain today in the upper Fraser River watershed. Findings support the designation of these landscapes as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and researchers are proposing the immediate protection of high-conservation value stands within BC's park system. Learn more in this talk by Dr. Darwyn Coxson, Professor in the Ecosystem Science and Management Program at UNBC.
