Title: CMT Archaeology in British Columbia: The Meares Island Studies

Year: 1993

Author(s): Arnoud H. Stryd; Morley Eldridge

Type: Journal Article

Description:
An emergent theme in archaeological resource management and research in the 1980s in British Columbia was aboriginal forest use, exemplified by the culturally modified tree (CMT). In this paper, we review the history of CMT studies in British Columbia, and focus on two CMT studies carried out in the 1980s on Meares Island off the west coast of Vancouver Island. The results of a number of other CMT studies are also discussed.

Title: Environmental disturbance and conservation of marine and shoreline birds on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

Year: 1991

Author(s): Kees Vermeer; Ken Morgan; Robert Butler

Type: Proceedings

Description:
abstract: Loss of habitat and oiling of birds represents two major threats to marine and shoreline bird populations on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Logging of mature and old-growth forests has led to the destruction of the nesting habitat of Marbled Murrelets Brachyramphus marmoratus, whereas industrial development of estuaries, mudflats and spawning grounds of Pacific herring Clupea harengus pallasi has diminished feeding habitats for other marine and shoreline birds. Fisheries operations, human disturbance of colonies, and introduced predators, notably racoon Procyon lotot and mink Mustela vison, have impacted upon local populations. Management actions and research needs to mitigate these threats are addressed. pp129-133.

Title: Environmental Impacts of Forest Management Practices in Tree Farm Licence 44 and Tree Farm Licence 46

Year: 1991

Author(s): Egan Ecological Services

Type: Report (unpublished)

Description:
Introduction: The environmental impact of forest management practices has been a topic of considerable debate for some time in British Columbia. Environmental and citizen groups have led the debate from one side, charting that practices such as clearcutting, slashburning and roadbuilding have had an continue to have serious negative impacts on the forest environment. Often, these claims have been documented by the media. In some cases these claims have been supported by resource management professionals. On the other side, forest industry spokespersons, while admitting that their practices created eyesorts, have consistently denied that their management practices are harmful, and point to vigorously growing second-growth forests as proof. Furthermore, they often maintain that they are simply acting within government legislation or guidelines. Nowhere has the debate over the environmental impacts of forst practices been so hotly contested as in Tree Farm Licences ((TFLs) 44 and 46 on southwestern Vancouver Island. In the early 1980s, MacMillan Bloedel's plan to log Meares Island (part of TFL 44) was thwarted by native and other protesters. Since then, both MacMIllan Bloedel and Fletcher Challenge have had to deal with protests throughout TFLs 44 and 46 (e.g., Sulphur Passage, Carmanah, Tofino Creek, Nahmint, Walbran). These protests have centered around three key sisues - the environmental impacts of forestry practices, the need to reserve more wilderness/old growth forest areas, and the need to recognize native land claims. This report deals with the first issue and addresses the question: "What are the environmental impacts of current forest management practices in TFLs 44 and 46?" This is a question which requires a clear answer before the Management and Working Plans for TFLs 44 and 46, currently before the public, can be considered for approval. This report will show that current forest management practices are having serious negative impacts on forest biological diversity and on long-term forest productivity. While some of the impacts documented here are inferred from studies conducted elsewhere, they are general enough to be applicable to TFLs 44 and 46. Wherever possible, examples of such impacts within TFLs 44 and 46 are provided. Of late, spokespersons for both the forest industry and the British Columbia Ministry of Forests have admitted that forest management "mistakes" have been made in the past and that these have caused environmental degradation (e.g., landslides, destruction of fish habitat). They insist, however, that such practices are no longer employed and that such degradation no longer occurs. While some practices have undoubtedly improved, it is clear that these changes are not significant enough to avoid the many negative impacts of forest management documented in this report.
