The catastrophic wildfires experienced in Western Canada and the United States over the past few years are one of the most visible aspects of climate change’s effect on forests, but there are other indicators that aren’t as publicized, says Bill Beese, a Vancouver Island University (VIU) Forestry Professor and Forest Ecologist.
