As part of our partnership with Natural Resources Canada and the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre, Silva21 works with components of the Adaptive Silviculture for Climate Change (ASCC) project.

 

ASCC is a collaborative effort to establish a series of experimental silvicultural trials in a network of different types of forest ecosystems in Canada and the United States. ​

 

Projects affiliated with ACSS: AD 10: Adaptive silviculture for climate change (ASCC) trial

Affiliated research hubs: Petawawa Research Forest

Silva21 contacts: Nelson Thiffault  (CWFC) et John Caspersen (Université de Toronto)

TransX

With our collaborators at the University of New Brunswick, we are also associated with the TransX project, led by Loïc D'Orangeville. 

TransX is a cross-border climate gradient experiment and tree plantation network in Canada and the United States. The plantations are composed of carefully selected natural and improved genotypes of key northeast species. The main objective of TransX is the response of trees to future warming, focusing on leaf phenology and growth, health and survival of species and populations.

Projects affiliated with TransX: AD 9b: Assisted migration trials: early response

As part of a five-year agreement between the National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment (INRAE) and Laval University, Silva21 touches on a few projects of Alexis Achim’s lab students in the Department of Wood and Forest Sciences.

Projects affiliated with INRAE: AN1a: Climatic drivers of tree growth

UNITE Flagship is an interdisciplinary community that combines the best skills in forest science with geospatial technologies, sensor innovations and gamification. UNITE will digitize forests and their value networks that will include different uses, services, opportunities and how these features are reconciled. With several synergies between remote sensing, EFI, growth and harvesting, Silva21 and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences are working together.

Projects affiliated UNITE: AN 8B: Viability of climate-informed, landscape-level strategies

Silva21 contact: Nicholas Coops, UBC
