In an effort to spark innovative forest management strategies, the Ontario government is pouring $140,000 worth of funding into the province’s Early Researcher Awards program. The program is directed at research that tackles methods to manage Ontario’s boreal forest, and is part of an overarching goal to build an innovation economy in the province.
The money will go to Lake Head University’s Dr. Han Chen, to facilitate his research on ways to mitigate the impacts of rapid environmental change to Ontario’s forests. Dr. Chen will develop monitoring strategies designed to improve forest management, while enhancing quality, biological diversity, and the ability of Ontario forests to serve as carbon sinks.
