Forest Wildlife Ecology and Behaviour Lab

PI: Joe Nocera, PhD.

Research in the Forest Wildlife Ecology and Behaviour Lab (FEWB) takes an integrative approach to cross-disciplinary questions in population ecology by modeling wildlife-habitat relationships from a management perspective. We work largely in forested systems, particularly the Acadian forest, although we address conservation issues using data from a wide range of habitat types.

The FEWB Lab is located at UNB Fredericton Campus, and housed under the Faculty of Forestry and Environmental Management Faculty.

Watershed and Aquatics Research and Monitoring Lab:

The Watershed and Aquatics Research and Monitoring Lab (WARM Lab) focus is on research of biota and water quality to study anthropogenic influences on freshwater systems to understand and inform future management or mitigation.

PI: Michelle A. Gray, PhD Associate Professor, Environment & Ecosystem Management, and Science Fellow, Canadian Research Institute.

The WARM Lab is located at UNB Fredericton Campus, and housed under the Faculty of Forestry and Environmental Management Faculty.

Wood Science Technology Centre

The Wood Science Technology Centre (WSTC) specializes in wood engineering and wood product manufacturing and offers services to clients in the areas of:

  • Research & Development
  • Product Testing/Quality Assurance
  • Technology Transfer

The Centre is housed at the Hugh John Flemming Forestry Centre in Fredericton. The WSTC is also home to the Canadian BioEnergy Centre (CBEC) through its active involvement in development and testing of solid biofuels.

Forest Watershed Research Centre

Paul Arp, PhD is the lead of the Forest Watershed Research Centre which uses scientific methods to address biophysical issues that arise from forest management operations, using watersheds as primary research and management units. The centre is a partnership of industry, university and government dedicated to the development, application, and communication of watershed research (water, nutrients, air, energy, vegetation and soils) to promote sustainable and integrated forest management policies and practices.
