The Université du Québec en Outaouais has received $1M to support forestry research. According to Christian Messier, Director of the  Institut des sciences de la forêt tempérée, the funds will support new approaches to the intersection of economic, social and ecological sciences, as well as the use of increasingly complex simulation models that facilitate new technological tools such as remote sensing, artificial intelligence, and environmental DNA. According to Département des sciences naturelles Director Sylvain Delagrange, the money will also be used to achieve regional research objectives for sustainable forestry. UQO (QC)
