This paper marks a culmination of work that took over a decade.  This included workshops with global experts to develop the overall approach, and initial funding success leading to GLEL’s study in eastern Ontario. The next level became possible when our partners in Europe were successful in getting EU funding to enable an international network to spread the approach to other regions, with GLEL participation in the planning.  Many individual graduate student sub-projects were designed and carried out, leading to the compilation and analysis of data from all those regions and sub-projects.
