Time Inc. and UPM are launching a biodiversity study in Canadian forests.

In cooperation with the University of Moncton, the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources, Bird Studies Canada and the Nature Conservancy of Canada, using bird species as indicators of how biodiversity is managed in forests, the study is expected to contribute to the further development of best forestry practices for the Acadian forest of New Brunswick and Canadian Boreal forests.

The study will use publicly owned land, as well as some owned by UPM in New Brunswick. The study team is looking to develop a methodology that will become a model for future biodiversity studies in other Canadian forests. The findings will contribute to national and international discussions on biodiversity research, forest certification, policy development and forest legislation.

UPM is pleased to be partnering with Time Inc. on this significant study, said Bernard Robichaud, chief forester for UPM Canada. The University of Moncton is responsible for the research project, and the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources will represent the forest land owner. Bird Studies Canada and Nature Conservancy Canada, two non-governmental organizations, will act as partners and offer their expertise during the whole process, Robichaud confirmed.
