Prehistoric trees may help a B.C. forest fight climate change

National Observer: “If you move that genetic diversity around within a species, the ecological impacts of that are much less than introducing non-native species, but you may achieve the same end”

Threatened Forests Cannot Move, So Scientists Are Relocating Their Genes

Scientific American: Trees can’t walk to a better place as climate worsens. So scientists are relocating helpful genes instead

Pine beetles partly to blame for bad wildfire season

CKNW News: Lori Daniels explains why BC’s Mountain Pine Beetle epidemic may be partly to blame for the tough wildfire season.

Firefighting strategies may be contributing to larger wildfires

Globe and Mail: Lori Daniel’s research is part of a growing body of evidence that supports a call for a different way of managing our forests – one that puts greater emphasis on reducing the fire hazard and less importance on the economic value of logging.
