Coming this October from James Lorimer & Company Ltd., Publishers...The Natural Treasures of Carolinian Canada, Edited by Lorraine Johnson
Posted August 16, 2007
Sweeping from Toronto to Lake Huron and Lake Erie is a region of biological richness unmatched in Canada. Here the native trees have unusual names — Sassafras, Cucumber Magnolia, Tulip-tree, Black Walnut, Pawpaw — evoking the distinctly southern character for which the region is named. The Carolinian region is only a quarter of a percent of the country’s total land area, but close to one-third of Canada’s rare and endangered plants and animals live here. So does more than a quarter of the country’s population. The Carolinian landscape is one of the most threatened in North America. Since 1984 the Carolinian Canada Coalition has been bringing together organizations, communities, and individuals to conserve the special places and species of the Carolinian life zone. It has become a powerful voice for protecting the remaining fragments of Carolinian habitat. But much still needs to be done. This book is a labour of love for the contributors, naturalists and scientists who share their knowledge of the diverse richness and rarity of the species and spaces in Carolinian Canada through engaging and informative text, and who hope that this book will inspire, encourage, and support the work of conserving this unique landscape.
Workshop on Ecological Restoration Best Practices in Protected Natural Areas & Canadian Council on Ecological Areas Annual General Meeting
Posted July 30, 2007

Call for papers for a special issue on the topic of the effectiveness of present or proposed protected areas to preserve biodiversity in the face of climate change
Posted July 30, 2006
Biodiversity, a peer-reviewed, international journal on biodiversity and its protection, is issuing a call for papers for a special issue on the topic of the effectiveness of present or proposed protected areas to preserve biodiversity in the face of climate changes. While science-based, the main audience for this independent journal is researchers, policy makers and the general public. The climate change special issue is planned for the spring of 2008 and papers are now being considered. Please send your abstracts to Stephen Aitken, Managing Editor at and cc to Peter Hall, Chair, Biodiversity Publications Committee at

Request for Expressions of Interest
Posted June 25, 2007
The Department of Environment and Conservation, Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is launching an ambitious program to improve our understanding of caribou demographics, movement patterns, and population dynamics. Woodland caribou on the island portion of the province are considered ‘secure’ but have recently entered into a population decline. The Wildlife Division is developing a program to better understand the rates and causes of the decline, and to determine effective management measures that may be applied to mitigate the decline.
Ecological Regions of the Northwest Territories - Taiga Plains
Posted June 15, 2007
This report provides a summary of the revised ecoregions of the Taiga Plains. The report integrates currently available physiographic, soil and vegetation information, better spatial data, intensive aerial surveys and an improved understanding of climate and landscape patterns to identify 45 new ecoregions within the Taiga Plains, as well as some larger-scale landscape reassignments to the Taiga Cordillera and Boreal Plains.
CCEA Gold Leaf Award winner becomes member of National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy
Posted June 12, 2007

Lee Anderson, University of Alberta - Winner of the 2007 Stan Rowe Home Place Graduate Award
Posted: May 10, 2007
CCEA is pleased to announce that Lee Anderson, an MSc Candidate in Conservation Biology with the Department of Renewable Resources at the University of Alberta is the first recipient of the Stan Rowe Home Place Graduate Award for 2007. Lee was selected from a field of 17 applicants from across the country and covering a diversity of interests in protected areas design and management. Lee’s research, which is being supervised by Dr. Fiona K.A. Schmiegelow, will focus on the design of a network of protected areas in the boreal forest. The work complements a recent CCEA initiative dealing with “Protect Areas in Northern Canada:Designing for Ecological Integrity” We look forward to hearing about progress on Lee’s research.

The applications for the graduate award were reviewed by a committee consisting of Nik Lopoukhine, Chair of the IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas, John Vandall, CCEA Treasurer, Dr. Rob Wright, Saskatchewan Environment, and Peter Jonker, University of Saskatchewan.

The deadline for the next round of applications for the Stan Rowe Home Place Graduate Award is December 15, 2007.

Protected Areas in Northern Canada: Designing for Ecological Integrity (NPA 1).
Posted: May 23, 2007
This report reviews and assesses science-based approaches appropriate for the design of protected areas in northern Canada. It contains results of a pan-Canadian survey of protected area agencies and practitioners. A central thesis of this report is that large protected areas with inherent ecological integrity are cornerstones in efforts to conserve wildlife and the ecological processes necessary to sustain them. 110 pgs, CCEA 2005

Protected Areas in Northern Canada: Identifying Ecological Areas to Represent Mammals (NPA 2).
Posted: May 23, 2007
Building on the conclusions of NPA1, this report is a case study of the Western Canadian Mammalian Province, which is largely coincident with Canada’s boreal ecozones east of the cordillera. The focus of this casestudy is the testing of an optimization model for representing disturbance sensitive mammalian species in protected areas large enough to maintain species diversity. This paper contains potential applications by protected area agencies and ENGOs conducting gap analyses throughout this region. 45 pgs, CCEA 2007
