December 15, 2011 Mr. Huancheng Ma
Ecosystem Management - valuable ideas about habitat conservation in SW China
In China, there has been a ban on logging since 1998. Since then, many forest restoration and conservation projects have been established, but none that address issues on whole ecosystem health. Dr. Huancheng Ma will share what he has learned about forest management here in the Pacific Northwest and how some components of our various management strategies like the Northwest Forest Plan or the model of our National Parks system can be used to benefit regions in SW China. Ma is a professor of silviculture at SW Forestry University.
Talks are free with RSVP to me before Thursday, December 15, or pay $8 museum admission at entrance. Plan to come early if possible to enjoy conversation with other WFI fellows from South Korea, Taiwan, Cameroon, and China.
