Description: 

Annual report by the Forest Management Division of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources on forest health conditions across the NWT. The forest health program monitors whether or not the forest has the capacity for renewal after a wide range of disturbances, for the retention of its ecological resiliency while meeting current and future needs of NWT residents. The focus of the forest health program has been on monitoring insect and disease impacts in the NWT forests. However, since 2015, FMD has also been recording abiotic disturbances to address the uncertainty of forest ecosystem response to a changing climate. Examples of abiotic disturbances recorded during monitoring surveys include: drought symptoms (reddening of foliage, sun scalding scars, stunted and gnarled foliage), flooding, wind and snow damage, land slumps, and permafrost related disturbance (“drunken forest” phenomenon). General decline of some tree species is also tracked.

Wildfire Impacts on the North Slave Region Ecosystem/Répercussions des feux de forêt sur l’écosystème des cours d'eau

Cette vidéo met en avant un projet financé par le PSEC des TNO, mené par Mike Pisaric de l’Université Brock, pour étudier les effets cumulatifs de deux principaux agents de perturbation – la sécheresse et les feux de forêt – et leurs effets sur les forêts et les systèmes aquatiques dans la région du Slave Nord.
