Systems Ecology

This study develops and applies strategies of systems analysis (including experimental design, statistical analysis, computer simulation, & mathematical modelling) in research contributing to better management of forest resources.

Current research is largely focussed on landscape-scale investigations of the dynamics of forest insect disturbance regimes, their interaction with wildfire, and their response to climate change. The study is also involved in detailed analysis of the impact of insect defoliators on conifers. Additional applications of system analysis strategies are considered as specific issues arise.
