Seminar Series



In 1993, a collaboration by the Canadian Wildlife Service (CWS), the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and Simon Fraser University was initiated to provide an interface between the mission-oriented research and management policies of the Canadian Wildlife Service and the more theoretical approach to research of the university community. By encouraging this interface, the government agencies would gain access to a broader base of scientific information for government policy and decision making and university researchers would benefit from a broader practical application for the more theoretical ideas which their disciplines generate.
The focal point of this collaboration is the NSERC/CWS Chair of Wildlife Ecology, currently held by Fred Cooke. The Chair brings together a large group of faculty, postdoctoral and gradute-student researchers, working together on several new studies of wildlife ecology, with specializations in behavioural, population and physiological ecology. The main centre of Chair activities is in the Department of Biological Sciences at Simon Fraser University, and the offices of the Pacific & Yukon region of the Canadian Wildlife Service.
