Conservation Science Research Group at Simon Fraser University (SFU).
Graduate students will participate in a project examining the outcome of
disturbance interactions on sub-boreal vegetation communities in
north-central British Columbia (BC), Canada as part of a broader research
program studying the geography of disturbance in Canada's northern forests.
