Abstract: Forests and society are changing, but by how much? How well is forest management keeping pace? And what does this tell us about the overall sustainability of forest landscapes in BC? This talk presents insights from Ira’s recently published PhD dissertation, which reconstructs social-ecological changes in BC over the past century.
Bio: Ira is a post-doctoral researcher at Simon Fraser University. He recently obtained his RPF and finished his PhD in the UBC Department of Forest and Conservation Sciences studying historical social-ecological changes in BC forests.
