"Salmon-fuelled ecosystems of the Great Bear Rainforest"

For those unable to attend in person, the lecture will also be available via livestream during and after the lecture.

Abstract

British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest is one of the last truly wild ecosystems in North America. A prominent feature of this coastal rainforest is the interwoven connections between salmon and large carnivores such as bears and wolves. Nutrients from salmon carcasses left behind by these predators can be traced through freshwater and terrestrial food webs, with impacts ranging from aquatic insects to streamside plants and birds. This talk will explore both ecological and conservation implications of these connections between forest, rivers and the sea.
 
Dr. John Reynolds is Professor of Aquatic Ecology and Conservation, and holds the Tom Buell BC Leadership Chair in Aquatic Conservation at Simon Fraser University. While much of John’s current research focuses on connections between salmon and ecosystems in British Columbia, past studies have ranged from mating systems of arctic birds to conservation of Cambodian watersnakes. John has held a wide variety of scientific advisory positions, including co-chair of the sub-committee that assesses extinction risk of marine fishes for COSEWIC, the body that advises the federal government on listing decisions for the Species at Risk Act.
