Title: Research in adaptive management: working relations and the research process.

Author: Graham, Amanda C.; Kruger, Linda E.

Date: 2002

Source: Res. Pap. PNW-RP-538. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 55 p

Description: This report analyzes how a small group of Forest Service scientists participating in efforts to implement adaptive management approach working relations, and how they understand and apply the research process. Nine scientists completed a questionnaire to assess their preferred mode of thinking (the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument), engaged in a facilitated conversation to "map" their ideas about research (Conceptual Content Cognitive Mapping, or "3CM"), and participated in several open-ended interviews. Recommendations are made for future adaptive management efforts, and propositions for further study are suggested.

Keywords: Adaptive management, social learning, collaboration, research, natural resources
