Dan McKenney of NRCan/Canadian Forest Service Public Lecture

January 6 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Dan McKenney of NRCan will be doing a public talk in the geography department of the University of Winnipeg.

Dan McKenney is a research scientist and team leader at Great Lakes Forestry Centre (GLFC) involved in economic analysis and the development of geospatial data and tools.

The goal of his team’s work is to support the sustainable management of Canada’s forests by focusing on spatial analysis needs and opportunities including data and tools for spatial analyses of the distribution, abundance and productivity of organisms, economic analyses of emerging issues such as carbon, bioenergy and invasive species, and enhanced capacity to examine the role of climate in natural systems and conduct climate change impact and adaptation analyses. The group has also been involved in economic assessments of research and priority setting projects.

The team provides data and results to researchers within and outside NRCan, particularly to other federal departments, provincial agencies and university researchers (and students) and receives many requests for data and advice. Much of the group’s past and current work is highlighted on the web sites listed below.
