Forest Resources Research in Canada
Abstract:Developments in Canadian science policy have given impetus to forest research, though funding and staffing are still inadequate. The Canadian Forestry Service (CFS) is responsible for most federal research on forest resources, and the National Research Council has stimulated university and industrial activity. While most provinces rely on CFS for research, Quebec, Ontario, and British Columbia have substantial programs of their own. At the six Canadian forestry schools the need for expansion is appreciated, but there are shortages of scientists and teachers. The Canadian Institute of Forestry is a strong advocate of research.
