CFS Forest Pest Related National Projects 2008/09
federal role in forest sector
Develop science and technology to enhance forestry policy and practices.

Support Canada’s international trade interests in the forest products industry.

Represent Canada’s bilateral and multilateral discussions and negotiations on forest-related issues of global significance.

Federal Role in Forest Sector
slide4

HQ: Ottawa

  • 5 Research Centres:
    • Pacific
    • Northern
    • Great Lakes
    • Laurentian
    • Atlantic
slide5

Reduction in Barriers to Trade

The movement of alien invasive species has serious ecological and economic effects around the world

The Canadian forest sector is affected both in damage to the forest and in impacts to trade.

The CFS works closely with the CFIA, international collaborators and provinces to address this issue

slide6
Economic Analysis

Alien species surveillance and establishment analysis

Testing pheromone lures for bark beetles

Barcoding invasive and native pests

Analysis of long-established IAS

Reduction in Barriers to Trade

slide7
Science support to development of international phytosanitary measures (CFS/IEPB,CFIA, DFAIT, IPPC, NAPPO)

Wood Packing treatment options

Sudden Oak Death Risk Analysis

Analysis of fungi in exported green lumber

Insect and fungal collections

Collections and taxonomy

Reduction in Barriers to Trade

slide8

Integrated Pest Management

  • Biocontrol of forest weeds
  • Armillaria
    • Growth impacts, modeling
    • Control - stumping
  • Phellinus/Laminated Root Rot research
    • Douglas-fir (DF) resistance
    • Genomics and proteomics
    • Occurrence and incidence in BC\'s southern interior
    • Management strategies for LRR
slide9

Integrated Pest Management

  • Defoliators
    • Bio-control: Spruce Budworm, Western Hemlock Looper, Doug-fir Tussock Moth, Hemlock Sawfly, Winter Moth
    • Spruce budworm population ecology and biology
  • Dwarf Mistletoe biocontrol
  • White Pine Weevil
    • Selection of resistant trees
slide10

Forest Invasive Species

  • Biocontrol and fungicides for management of Sudden Oak Death
  • Stem Rusts
      • White Pine Blister Rust Research
  • Septoria canker of hybrid poplar
slide11

Mountain Pine Beetle

Bark Beetles

  • Modelling the risk of eastern spread of MPB: susceptibility and host connectivity
  • Spatial modelling of beetle impact under management and climate scenarios
  • Population dynamics of endemic populations
  • Landscape level spread model for MPB
  • Incorporation of genomics information into MPB statistical spread models (Genome BC announcement)
  • Beetle fungal tree interactions

slide12

Mountain Pine Beetle

Bark Beetles

  • Impacts of interacting below- and above- ground herbivores on gap dynamics
  • Reproduction of MPB in alternate hosts (spruce)
  • Measuring ecosystem response to beetle outbreaks
    • Regeneration and growth releases.
    • Measuring interactions between beetle and fire
    • Modeling growth and yield in a beetle environment
mountain pine beetle remote sensing
Estimate changes in MPB population over time

Assess efficacy of mitigation efforts

Track population dynamics, including Green:Red ratios (green attack is retrospectively mapped using time series of red attack)

Make wide-area estimates from sampled information

Estimate and adjust red attack damage estimates

Mountain Pine Beetleremote sensing
slide14
Spruce Beetle, Western Spruce Budworm Risk in a Changing Climate

Implemented SB voltinism and WSBW development models in BioSIM for CC forecasting

Developing statistical outbreak risk models including CC

Developing collaborations with USFS Western Threat Centre, Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium
