In the forest products industry, working as a biologist means you are a key player in ensuring that forestry operations are run in an environmentally sustainable way. Your scientific background is complemented by a working knowledge of relevant environmental legislation.
Biologists can be specialists or generalists. Forest products companies, for example, may have bird biologists on staff. Other companies may have biologists on staff who perform a whole range of duties, including mapping terrestrial ecosystem, assessing tree stands, counting fish and other wildlife populations, and analyzing the impact of forestry operations on watersheds.
