About this Event

Climate Modelling and Forest Adaptation (online)

Offered by University of British Columbia, with Dr. Tongli Wang

April 19, 2021 – April 30, 2021 (15 hours)

ClimateSense Reduced Rate: $150

Please Note: This reduced rate is offered for residents of Prince Edward Island only.

Climate change is a major threat to the capacity of forest ecosystems to provide ecological, economic and social services. This online course will introduce various climatic and ecological modeling tools, and guide the students to practical applications of scale-free climate models and niche-based ecological models in forest and ecological (such as birds, fish and animals) resource management to increase the resilience and viability of forest ecosystems. By the end of the course, students will master skills and techniques to: 1) use climatic models to generate spatial climate data; 2) understand niche-based ecological models; and 3) interpret and apply model output to forest management practice.

Intended Audience: The course is designed for forest professionals who are interested in professional forestry and forest adaptation to climate change. This course has no prerequisites, but a basic knowledge of ecology is needed to take full advantage of the material that is provided. Some basic knowledge of R programming will make the modeling part easier but not compulsory as we assume students with no experience in using R.
