Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: This publication will enrich public understanding about the important contributions to science made at this and other outdoor laboratories. Coram, and other long-range research sites, provide scientific knowledge to assist resource professionals with the development of sound land management principles. This knowledge ensures healthy, sustainable, and productive ecosystems while meeting social and economic needs. Major research at Coram includes the regeneration of young forests and the interaction of flora, fauna, and water to a wide range of forest treatments. Ongoing studies include: cone and seed development and dispersal; natural and artificial regeneration after harvest cuttings; effects of stand culture treatment on forest development; insect and disease interactions; effects of the amount of wood harvest on site productivity; influence of silvicultural practices on watershed, esthetics, and wildlife values The Coram Experimental Forest is used cooperatively by Federal, university, and private scientists. About 340 ha of the forest are designated as the Coram Research Natural Area where virgin conditions are permanently maintained for research and monitoring. Coram, designated a Biosphere Reserve in 1976, is part of an international network that is devoted to the conservation of nature and scientific research in the service of humans. Continuing research at Coram will help people gain a better understanding of how they can live in harmony with the landscape and assist with the protection of forest and range ecosystems.

Keywords: even-aged harvest methods, site preparation, regeneration, cone production, seed dispersal, stand culture, natural area, biosphere reserve
