This project will involve the monitoring and assessment of newly implemented vegetation management processes at Spectrum Resource Group. The efficacy and consistency of herbicide application in forestry and industrially-related environments will be observed, and notes and recommendations will be made on how new procedures compare to traditional methods. Specifically, the intern will: collect information about the consistency and efficacy of herbicides applied in various locations throughout BC and Alberta; monitor and assess biocontrol agents that are used on specific invasive weeds; and make observations concerning the efficacy of the herbicides in various locations, on various species, and how these compare to biocontrol agents in their ability to reduce invasive weed outbreak.
