Members of the Columbia Mountains Institute of Applied Ecology receive regular news updates by email. Content is presented in "digest" style, and includes items of interest to people working in the various fields of applied ecology in southeastern British Columbia. Members send information about publications, conferences, web sites, funding opportunities, job postings, etc. to the CMI office, where it is compiled and sent out in a bulletin at the rate about one per month. Members also receive advance notice of courses and conferences.
For the benefit of non-CMI members, the following links provide access to archived CMI member updates. Some emails have been edited for the sake of brevity, and aged hyperlinks are not working reliably.

In May 2004, the BC Hydro Strategic Environmental Initiatives Program created a compilation CD containing reports pertaining to the benefits of revegetation of the Upper Arrow Reservoir drawdown zone. See list of titles on the CD, below.

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.
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.
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.
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 and Dr, John Woods of Parks Canada, and feature ecological issues related to Mount Revelstoke National Park, Glacier National Park, and the Columbia Mountains.
