Shaw TV broadcast highlighting AGGP shelterbelt research at the CLC

Department of Soil Science Ph.D. student Chukwudi Amadi and technician Mark Cooke describe the work being done at the Conservation Learning Centre to measure the greenhouse emissions and carbon sequestration potential of shelterbelts. This project will provide farmers with improved understanding of the value shelterbelts have, specifically their ability to reduce the net greenhouse gas emissions of conventional farming practices.  Click here to view the broadcast.

North American Forest Soils Conference October 8, 2012

The Role of Forest Soils in Sustaining Ecosystem Services (June 16-20, 2013)

In 1958, the first North American Forest Soils Conference was held at Michigan State University to bring together scientists who were interested in forest-soil relationships, and to give them an opportunity to discuss their research results and encourage future research in this area. Every five years thereafter, researchers from universities, industry, and government agencies have met to continue the tradition of discussing forest soils research from North America and around the globe, and where it may take us in the future. So join us in 2013 in Whitefish, Montana to learn about the area's unique culture, forests, soils, and geology!  Click here for more information.
