Program 91

AIRDATE:06/03/03

PROMO: Disturbance is essential to the forest ecosystem and its renewal, whether by fire, insects, disease or blowdown.

Dr. John Spence, Dr. Jon Volney and Josh Jacobs talk about their work with EMEND, an ambitious 80 year experiment sponsored by the Sustainable Forest Management Network that will research how the forest ecosystem deals with natural disturbance and whether logging can emulate that.

And Dr. Susan Hannon, an avian specialist at the University of Alberta, looks at the importance of recent burns as habitat for woodpeckers and the consequences for salvage logging.
