Snow Surveys in Scotty Creek, NWT

Ana Sniderhan, a MSc candidate in the Forest Ecology Research Group, travelled to Scotty Creek, NWT in March 2013. Her objective was to conduct snow surveys of the forest monitoring plot which will help us understand the feedbacks between forest structure, snow capture and consequently nutrient and water inputs.

Welcome to the Forest Ecology Research Group


Located at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, the Forest Ecology Research Group examines the functional basis of plant species distributions. Trade-offs between stress tolerance and performance contribute strongly to species distributions and may provide a more general basis for species range sizes and patterns of local distribution. We focus on forest ecosystems including tropical, temperate and boreal forests.
