Description: The Experimental Forests and Ranges (EFRs) of the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture were established to represent major forest vegetation types of the United States, to provide guidelines for management of those forests and ranges, and to serve as "outdoor classrooms" for land managers to learn how to better manage their forests. Research data collected during the 100 years since the first experimental forest was established in 1908 can be used synthetically to address regional and continental scale questions related to forest and range management, key forest ecosystem processes, wildlife habitat requirements, watershed management, and other topics. Toward that end, a workshop was held to advance our knowledge and ability to meet current and future conservation challenges by synthesizing silviculture and range management information from our network of EFRs. Sixty scientists from Forest Service Research and Development and partner institutions participated in the workshop, which was held at the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, WV, from September 29 to October 2, 2008.

Keywords: Experimental Forests and Ranges, silviculture, research, long-term
