BC Hydro Reports:
Evaluation of Ancillary Benefits of Reservoir Drawdown Zone Revegetation in the Upper Arrow Reservoir

Mountain Caribou Compendium
The Mountain Caribou Compendium is a set of over 180 journal articles, reports and other information about the ecology and management of southeastern British Columbia’s threatened Mountain Caribou populations. In May of 2010 the Compendium moved from the CMI office to the library of Selkirk College, Castlegar campus.
You can download an index and abstracts for the Mountain Caribou Compendium as a Microsoft Word document. To find reports, open the downloaded file, and use your Microsoft Word “find” function to locate author names or keywords in the document.
About the Mountain Caribou Compendium
The southern populations of woodland caribou, known locally as “mountain caribou,” are listed as a threatened species. Virtually all of the world’s 1800 mountain caribou live in southeastern British Columbia. The Mountain Caribou Compendium is an initiative to improve the accessibility of research results and other information related to the mountain caribou herds of southeastern British Columbia.
Supporting agencies for the Mountain Caribou Compendium
In early 2003 the Revelstoke Forest Workers Society compiled a list of all research reports and other documents relevant to the management of the threatened local mountain caribou populations. The Columbia Mountains Institute of Applied Ecology became host for the project, with a commitment to maintain the collection of print materials and make the information available on the internet. Early financial support for the project came from the City of Revelstoke’s “Revelstoke Caribou Recovery Committee” and the Revelstoke Community Forest Corporation. The collection was donated to Selkirk College Castlegar campus in May of 2010.
National Park Feature Articles
Parks Canada is a valued supporter of the Columbia Mountains Institute of Applied Ecology. The following information sheets and articles were produced by Michael Morris of Parks Canada, and feature ecological issues related to Mount Revelstoke National Park, Glacier National Park, and the Columbia Mountains.

The Columbia Mountains Institute rarely conducts research projects. It is our members that do the research.
The projects listed below were conducted in southeastern British Columbia over the last decade. Some of the items are "grey literature" and not found in published journals. Please contact the authors directly for more information.
