Condensed history of 1862 Small pox epedemic

Condensed history of 1862 Small pox epidemic:


Remember I am a forester not an archaeologist or anthropologists, but to me it was interesting and probably the reason there was no opposition to settlement on Lasqueti.


Questions to consider about forests

I have listed some questions we need to consider about our forests on their own and together (their interactions and cumulative effects) between our present forest and what were the condition of Lasqueti forests in 1850. I believe it is important to consider our goals for our forests, before we consider the ways we might reach our goals.
