PROMO: Common sense says water runs Downhill. But scientists are finding that in the boreal forest, it also runs in other directions. How water moves and its ecological significance in the boreal forest is the focus of a major study in Alberta’s North called the Hydrology, Ecology and Disturbance (HEAD) Project.

The work of scientists Drs. Kevin Devito, Suzanne Bayley, Irena Creed, Lee Foote and Eric Butterworth gives a whole new perspective on hydrology and the impact it has on boreal wetlands, duck habitat and what industry can do to conserve water resources in the north.
