'Forest Management Planning in the Face of Climate Change: Impact and Adaptation in the Acadian Forest'
May 15 -16, 2007, Fredericton, N.B.
Affiliation: Natural Resources Canada, Canadian Forest Service
Description: FMF helped sponsor this two-day workshop, which brought together experts from across federal and provincial governments, industry, and academia to discuss the forest sector’s vulnerability to climate change in Atlantic Canada.
It has been summarized in the following documents: The first is a two-page overview that summarizes the knowledge gaps and required actions identified during the first day of the workshop. The other is a compilation of the discussions of the second facilitated workshop during which researchers and industry leaders attempted to set the direction for research addressing climate change in the Acadian forest.
Affiliation: UNB Fredericton
Description: The economic, cultural, political, and environmental issues that are evolving in our world require professionals who have a global view and a multicultural understanding. This project seeks to create intercontinental learning bridges between prominent and respected European and Canadian learning institutions with model forest ecosystems as the learning laboratories.
In order to learn about forests, students will learn in forests, so that the forests will become the classrooms through cooperation with Research Forests and the Canadian Model Forest Network. This was the third year that Fundy Model Forest organized the New Brunswick leg of the tour and provided funding.
Objective: To increase student and teacher exchange and understanding related to improving sustainable forest management (SFM) practices.

Identification of Bryophyte Specifications
Completed: September, 2007
Affiliation: University of New Brunswick, Saint John, Department of Biology, Bryophyte Lab
This project, supported by FMF, is a one stage of a long term study looking at how forest management operations affect the biodiversity of plants on the forest floor. For more than a decade, a team of ecologists led by Drs. Kate Frego and Mark Roberts have been working on this project funded by FMF and J.D. Irving, Limited. Dr. Frego concentrates on bryophytes (mosses and liverworts) while Dr. Roberts has been examining herbaceous and vascular plants.
