The Canadian Mountain Network Project: Human/Nature Connections in Canada's Biosphere Reserve Mountain Environments. 03/17/2020 12:00 PM03/17/2020 01:00 PMMM/DD/YYYYAmerica/VancouverLed by Graham Sakaki and Pam Shaw. Learn about a three year research project that looks at human/nature connections in mountain environments, starting in the UNESCO-designated Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Region (MABR). One-quarter of Canada’s land mass is made up of mountains, seven times the area of the European Alps. Most of those mountains are in British Columbia and as the population continues to grow, mountain ecosystems are facing unprecedented threats to their sustainability, which include climate change biodiversity loss and water scarcity – all relating to human impacts and our relationship to the natural environment. Without a full understanding of human-caused impacts and a focus on solutions, efforts to conserve fragile mountain ecosystems are certain to fail. B305 Rm440 Research Commons false
