Groot Bothwell Carlsson-Forest fire management adaptation to climate change in the Prairie Provinces

The effects of future fire regimes altered by climate change, and fire management in adaptation to climate
change were studied in the boreal forest region of the Prairie provinces. Four National Parks were used as
study areas. Present (1975-90) and future (2080-2100) fire regimes were simulated in Wood Buffalo
National Park, Elk Island National Park, Prince Albert National Park and Riding Mountain National Park
using data from the Canadian (CGCM1) and Hadley (HadCM3) Global Climate Models (GCM) in separate
simulation scenarios.
