SUBJECT: #207 2006 SFMN Conference: Overview
SYNOPSIS: Forest ecologists estimate that three to five billion birds migrate to or through the boreal forest each year. Thatís a lot of biomass that depends on the existence of viable habitat in our forests. Making sure it lasts has been the focus of research for the Sustainable Forest Management Network over the last twelve years. The scientists, companies and governments involved in the Network met in Edmonton recently to discuss their findings and what they mean for how we will manage our forests in the future.
