Anthropogenic Disturbance Database Compilation and Mapping in the Canadian Portion of the Northwest Boreal LCC
The Northwest Boreal Landscape Conservation Cooperative (NWB LCC) is a partnership between agencies involved in land management across Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and British Columbia. The NWB LCC aims to coordinate science and support to decision makers for improving land management decisions. Knowledge gaps have been identified by the NWB LCC and are beginning to be filled. One of the priority information gaps is knowledge of the anthropogenic footprint currently on the landscape.The anthropogenic footprint is all the disturbance types made by various human activities, usually through some form of industrial development. Examples include roads, power lines, pipelines, and clear cuts among many others....
Understanding Traditional Ecosystem Management Practices & Their Application to Contemporary Sustainable Boreal Ecosystems
This project documented the traditional ecosystem management practices of the Gwich’in and Koyukon community of Beaver, Alaska through the collection of oral histories. The findings provide insight and understanding into the culturally-based rules which guided management and relationships between people, landscapes, and food resources to ensure sustainable yield within the northwest boreal forest and developed a suite of principles for sustainable, productive boreal ecosystems.
