SUBJECT: #234 ILM Workshop: Modelling and Invasive Species
SYNOPSIS: Consider the lowly earthworm. Friend to gardeners. Death to forests. The invasion of non-native species like earthworms is just one of the consequences of human development and itís encroachment on forest ecosystems. Another challenge is climate change. Ecologists specializing in Integrated Landscape Management recently got together to discuss how these impacts will influence future land use planning for Albertaís boreal forest.
